Frigidaire Frontload makes odd buzz and won't pump

Well, about 2 weeks ago, my 1 1/2 yo front load decided to start buzzing at odd intervals in the wash cycle. No water gets pumped out and it seems that these buzzing sounds occur at the same time the pump is supposed to run. Also, the cycle stops for all intents and purposes and will not continue unless manually turned. I think it's the timer. Any suggestions or help? Thanks.

Are you able to get the water pump to pump out the water at all?

If not, that could be something stuck in the water pump, making it buzz or hum and not drain the water.

Buzzing during the wash cycle could be the door latch lock switch, try to wiggle the door handle while its buzzing to see if that stops it, or has any effect on it.

The pump doesn't pump at all, but then again, the timer stops timing altogether as well. I'll try the latch and check the pump. Thanks

Could be the motor controller board making the timer stall before pump out. Seen lots of these boards go out.
