Question about Washing Machines
Water did not drain out of washer. Timer is ok. Motor hummed in wash range but agitated when turned on and off several times. Would not pump water out when manually selected to that position . Wife reported a leak at front edge of machine. Suspect foreign object in water pump, bad pump, or motor. Can you help.

If the washer will not agitate, spin or drain it's a motor problem, capacitor or a broken motor coupler. It's either a loose wire connection on the start circuit or failed contact in the timer. When you say that the motor hums during spin, that would indicate that the motor has run voltage, but it has no start voltage. It needs both start and run voltage in order to get the motor started and running. The start voltage gets the motor started, and once started all it needs is run voltage to keep it running. The only difference between agitate and spin is that the polarity is reversed in order to start the motor in the opposite direction. The reversal of the polarity is controlled by timer contacts 7 and 14.
Most likely it's a timer or loose wire connection.
