    Although I don't hear any "grinding" noise, the washer will fill, the motor runs, but no agitation. On spin cycle, the water drains, but no spinning.

    Not sure if I did the last post correctly, sorry if this is redundant....
    It is a Whirlpool washer, top loading, model LSV7244AQO if I'm reading it correctly. If I can find a way to order a motor coupler, would I be able to replace it myself without calling for a technician service call? ie is it a relatively simple repair/replace, or is it rocket science? :-)
    Thanks!

    Is this something that I could fix myself if I can get the part(s)?

    Thanks

If this is a Whirlpool washer, you have a broken motor coupler

My washer fills and agitates, but when it gets to the rinse/spin cycle it stops and makes a loud grinding noise. Thanks for your time


If it doesn't drain the water after the wash cycle and the sound is more like a buzz then the first thing that I suggest you check is the lid switch. If the lid switch is damaged then the machine will not pump the wash cycle water out and it will not go into the subsequent cycles. The "grinding" or buzzing sound can be caused by an intermittent signal reaching relay switches or solenoids.

The bad news is with the combination of not draining and the grinding it is undoubtedly the drain pump. The good news is they are not difficult to replace. Let me know if you need any info on replacing it yourself and I'll try to give you the steps needed.
Hope this helped.

Whirlpool washer Mod# TWAS750PQO, Ser# CR3520005


is it possible that the washer was overloaded? if so the agitator has little plastic "gears" that move the agitator one way only, they could have made the sound. 
you can also check under the washer to see if anything (like a coat-hanger or something) is interfering with moving parts of the washer
