GE top load washing machine. Model WJRE5550K2WW. wasn't

GE top load washing machine. Model WJRE5550K2WW. wasn't draining, no sound of pump or drainage. I remove the front panel and removed the drainage pump. The hose that comes frrom the drum and the pump itself had several very large pieces of either plastic or light metal broken apart. Not something that was in the wash, more like another part that had broken up. Not sure what parts would be inline. I was hopeful that this was just part of the pump, so i could replace the pump, but am looking for other possibilities before i start spending money on parts i dont need....or if the whole washer is shot now

I am having the same problem as (http://www.justanswer.com/appliance/8mmj1-washing-machine-door-locked-making-humming-sound-no-lights.html) I have taken off the top pannel and have unhooked the hoses and rehooked and unplugged the connectors (electrical) but still I get the flashing door locked and the humming. I assume the hoses and electrical connections you are referring to are what connects to the cold and hot water inlet?
