Question about Whirlpool GSX9750 Top Load Washer

Open Question

Whirlpool Gold, Ultimate Care II, gsx9750PWO. It smelled like smoke (no visible smoke) during the end of a load. It did run all the way through, including the spin cycle. The load was only 1 shirt. Now it makes a quiet humming sound (like the motor is trying to go) but the agitator does not move. Took it apart and I see no blockage on the pump, in fact removed the pump from the motor and the same quiet humming sound so I don't think it can be related to the pump. It is not pumping out either, if that matters. I guess the motor is not moving at all. How do I troubleshoot to see if it is the motor, clutch or something else? Agitator was spinning when I moved it by hand, but somewhere in all my trying to figure it out it froze up, now I can't spin the bottom of the agitator. I did spin the motor (by grabbing the shaft that gois into the pump), it went one way, but not the other, again, in case that matters. Thanks

Slow agitating

Sounds like a failure in the gear case but the burning smell makes me wonder if you have a problem with the motor. You will need a appliance tech to verify
