I did the test and the motor just hums... could it be the start capacitor on the motor instead of the motor?
I still cannot rotate that agitator by hand so I am wondering if both the motor and gear case may be bad?
I have not bypassed the lid closed switch so I don't think the motor would turn. Would it hum in that case? Do I need to short it out to do this motor test?
What about not being able to manually turn the agitator by hand?
