I have a Kenmore washer model 110.26962503 that is making a humming/buzzing noise leading to the rinse cycle. Prior to the issue starting, I replaced the couplings because I was having issues with clothes being very damp after the spin cycle. I fixed that issue and now I have another problem, the buzzing sound. I pulled the pump off and there isn't anything jammed in it. Hopefully you can hear it in the attached video. Sorry, the dryer is running at the same time so you will hear some other noise.

That dryer running is throwing me off, can you please stop the dryer so I can only hear the washer running alone?

I should add, the washer appears to be functioning properly other than the buzzing noise.

Thanks! I hear it clearly now.

Remove the motor and sit it on your floor with the electrical connector still hooked up to it, then run it by-itself and see if that noise is still present or not.

Here's the motor for your model:
