I think I have a bad tranimission. Was washing a load of clothes. Washer drained and was starting the first spin before rinse. I heard a loud sound not a bang but more like an electrical short. Then I heard the motor running but did not have a load on it. I removed all clothes from it and started the washer from the beginning. It filled with water just fine and it came on to aggitate but did not. I can hear the motor run but here again under no load. I turned the timmer to the point it should drain but nothing happended. Just a hum and maybe timmer sound.
Is this a bad tranismission and is it worth fixing?

Need model number of your washer but sounds like maybe something got caught in the pump and is preventing the motor from turning. Hope you didn't leave it humming for long as this can damage the motor in short order. It is relatively easy to remove the pump from the motor and then test for proper agitation/spin functions with pump removed to isolate the problem.
