Does the drum turn when the machine agitates?

no
Expert:  Mike replied 5 years ago.
Ok so to clarify the machine fills, then drains but the drum does not turn at any time?

When the machine is done filling do you hear a hum like the motor is running but the drum does not turn?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
yes, the motor is running... when the drum is supposed to be turning, there is a clicking noise. The original problem occurred when I was washing a blanket. It seemed as if the drum went out of whack
Expert:  Mike replied 5 years ago.
Ok sounds to me like the belt is broken or has come off the main pulley, your going to need to pull the unit out and take the panel off in the rear, Once the panel is off check the belt and replace it if needed. If the belt is still hooked up as it should be then the problem will be the motor this will need to be replaced.
