Kenmore Washer Not Agitating/Spinning

Our Kenmore washer (70 Series, Model 22722100) recently stopped agitating and spinning. It fills up OK, and then when it should agitate or spin, there's a hum like the motor has seized up.

Is there much to replacing the motor on this model?

Lean washer back against wall, unclip water pump (leave hoses attached} Set washer back down and try spin cycle. If starts to spin you have a sock stuck in water pump and most likely will need a water pump. I very much dough you need a motor.
