Maytag Ensignia Washer looks brand new but is 15 years old. Has worked perfectly until just now.

-Problem: tub wouldn't drain.
-Serviceman remarks: Washer not draining, washer 1/3 full. Washer will agitate. Can hear motor hum and smell burning in spin. Checked drain pump, no obstruction. Tilted washer and turned transmission pulley by hand and no resistance and can see basket turning. Power going to motor, will not reverse to drain and spin. Need to replace motor.

I replaced motor and belt with same result of tub not draining. Pump was tested and is functioning. I hear a click and a hum when machine is expected to drain but it doesn't drain (there is no burning)
Any clues or next steps?
Thank you for your replies.

Hi,

Turn the Fabric Selection dial to the delicate cycle and see if it will drain and spin on slow speed.

If it drains and spins on slow speed, then the timer is the problem.

Here's the timer for your model:
Timer WP22004070
