Whirlpool top load washer spins but will not drain – replaced pump

Charlotte Carr asked 3 years ago
A piece of fabric had completely wrapped around the pump impeller.

I had to remove it using force so when it still wouldn’t drain I checked for other blockages.

When I didn’t find any decided the pump must have broken.

I have replaced it and the washing machine will drain manually and spin but the water will not pump out.

I have checked the electrical connection to the front of the motor and it seems fine.

Is it possible that the motor has broken only in the pump direction?
