Will not drain. There’s a buzz noise when it tries to drain. When I removed the drain hose to check for clogs, the tub emptied. Removed pump and hose with no signs of any blockage. Is there a way to test the pump? Or a is there a valve deeper in that I should suspect?

Yes, I have had a local service call in Salome, Arizona for this same problem, and I removed the drain pump from underneath the washer, then I disassembled the drain pump and found little stones in it jamming up the drain pump motor impeller, I cleaned them all out at the customers sink, and it worked perfect!

Here's the Drain Pump for this model:
WH23X28418 Drain Pump


Let us know how it goes.

Yes, sir. The pump was smoked. My wife rarely gives it a day off. Luckily, I was able to find one local and changed it out when I got off work. Works like new. Thanks again for the help. Hopefully it’ll be a little while before the next thing breaks
