Hello from JA My name is Woody. I will be glad to assist you today. I have been servicing ALL Major Brands of Appliances for 33 Years, and have over 100,000 in home repairs and over 50,000 phone and internet repairs under my belt.
Can you explain (locks up a little better)?
Do you mean the belt will not turn but the motor is running or humming?
Yes, that is what it is doing.
ok on these older belt drive models the pump has a tendency to seize up and that will not allow the unit to run but the motor will normally hum or just the motor slipps on the belt .
If this is what is happening the pump will need to be replaced.
CLICK HERE for part info and it is also a link you can order the part from .
correct till it seizes up again ,
You can keep on having to un seize it every time or replace the pump.
ok if the inner basket is moving while the unit is agitating is abasket drive/ brake issue .
It would need to be replaced .
Or you will have to hold it every time.
But after looking the part up I see the basket drive/ brake is no longer available it was part number 359699
