The unit is a model 417.40042990. As stated, it will spin but only for a few rotations then it stops and hums until the cycle is over. It fills and empties just fine. Am hoping it is a plug and play part issue. Thanks in advance for all help.

Hi,

It sounds like the motor speed control board has gone bad. Unplug your washer and check for any burnt spots on it. Unfortunately, It's been discontinued by the manufacturer.

Here's the motor speed control board for your model:
