You need to remove the pump on the unit. There is likely a coin or something stuck in it. You do this from the bottom. Watch this video.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LUoyP4QJv_c

I tried that. Nothing in the pump or hoses but I can see debris in the plastic tub near the hoses. How do I get the inner tub out? I've remove all parts but it won't lift off the spindle. I have a photo of that would be helpful.

Also just to confirm it is a maytag bravos quiet series 300.

The tub often get jammed on the shaft. You actually have to lift it up then push it back down then up then down again until it comes free. You can spray some WD-40 on the shaft while doing that to get it off then the tub will lift out.

I tried WD40 but the shat has a plastic piece on it that is larger that won't allow the tub to lift out. Does that piece come off? Looks like it is permanent

That plastic piece is slipped over the splined shaft, it comes out with the tub. The tub is just stuck on the shaft you have to lift it up then back down until it comes off, there is nothing else you need to remove to get it off.
