There was not anyhing I can see but shouldnt it turn freely? It seams fairly hard to turn manually. I checked drain hoses and up inside of pump and did not see anything. I will check again with a flashlight
I'll put it back on, I had it off checking the coupler.
I couldnt get the cabinet back on all the way but enough to get the wiring back to jump the lid switch and the tub did begin to spin with the pump off. I didnt let it get up to speed but at least now i know it is not the motor. What are your thoughts?

Kelly, I replaced the pump today and the motor will spin very slowly for about a half a turn with the motor humming then it stops.....what could this be?
Well it never did get up to full speed because I didn't want to take the time since you were online, I only let it start turning and then shut it off. Now it turns real slow maybe a turn or two and then quits, all the while it seams as though the motor is humming louder than usual. I'm totally perplexed.
I tried switching back and forth between loads, speed and water temps. Some times it moves a little and others it doesn't. regardless of that the motor hums louder than usual. About the most is has moved is maybe 2 complete turns
It did move the furthest on fast speed
I tried it again without the pump, same result-would start to spin and then quit leaving the motor humming. I took the motor back off and reinspected the coupler and made certain they were installed correctly- same result. I then took out the tub to inspect the drive block and it looked fine too. then I put it back together and gave it another test run - this time it made a clunky sound and then started spinning? WTF. I have shut it off 3-4 times and now it seams to be working. Could it have been something in the gears. Any ideas? I really don't expect it to last. I appreciate your help Kelly.
No I will look a little closer though and let you know - It just bugs me to not be able to figure this out. That's why I needed an expert like you.
My wife just told me the wash tub seems higher up, and the small wash cycle now works which didn't before - Does this mean I should go ahead and replace the drive block?
