Whirlpool/Kenmore/something like that? Probably the tranny-motor coupling underneath the machine. Just a few bucks from an appliance store and easy to install.

Not an answer to your question but a humourous story. My mother was having a similiar problem with her washer about a month ago. Water had run into it and then it would not do anything except make a buzzing sound. I went down and got the water out for her and checked what I could (very limited) and told her she would have to call a repairman. Repairman came out, started checking the same things I did and he found no problem so he proceeded to take the motor out to check it. Turns out mice or something had carried 19 pieces of dog food into the motor. Removed the foodand everything was fine.

The Tannerite might be the issue here. Most washers don't like to get blown up.

Inside the aggitator there are little fingers made of some kind of pastic, they ware out and need to be replaced. Could be also caused by overloading.
Take the cap off of the aggitator and you will see the teeth in the aggitator itself where the little finger catch.
