1997 Sears Kenmore washer (model#110.26912691): Not agitating or spinning, but you can hear the motor running. Took the cabinet off, then removed the water pump and motor, then I saw the motor coupling broken, and lots of oil coming from the gearcase. I showed the customer the oil leak and they said, we have had good use from it, and its time for another new Sears Kenmore. I agreed.
Here’s the motor coupling for this model, in case others without an oil leak what to order and change it.
Whirlpool washer(model#LXR9245EQ0): Leaking water, removed the cabinet and found the water pump leaking water.
Here’s the water pump for this model:

Maytag front-load washer(model#MFW9700SQ1): Error Code F2 was displayed and it wouldn’t drain the water out from the drum. Found the water pump was just humming, not turning. Installed new water pump, worked great!
Frigidaire front-load washer (model#GLTF2940ES0): The motor wasn’t turning at all, found the motor board bad. Installed new one, worked great!
Here’s the motor board for this model:

Frigidaire Front-Load Washer(Model#FWT445GES2): Found the rear tub bearing is out and the middle tub seal leaking water.
You can either replace the complete outer tub assembly with the bearing already installed or if your really into a challenge just change the bearing alone as described here:
Also order the tub seal:
Sears Kenmore Washer(model#110.23034101): Washer will fill with water then stop and not do anything, also when you put it spin, nothing happens. Found the lid switch bad.
What you do to check it is to get a volt/ohm meter and put the the meter on the ohms setting, then put the meter probes in the black & red connectors from the lid switch, then push the lid switch down, if your meter reads 0-1 ohms then its good, if the meter reads nothing at all its bad.
Here’s the lid switch for this model:
