Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

This is going to require a new motor to fix the issue. It's a fairly old unit, but this is a washer/dryer model so it may still be worth fixing. The motor is about $135 and if you call for service it will be another $150 or so to install it, for a total of about $285-300 or so. Either way, below is a link to the motor you'd need to order.
