First, I called my son. I not a do-it-yourselfer. I'm a call my son-er. Then he looked under the washing machine from the back and saw that the part was broken. We ordered it on line. It came in, and he installed it from the front by tilting the washing machine backward. Now the machine purrs like a kitten. If you need more specific information than that, I have to get you a detailed description of the repair from my son. P.S. My four-year old grandson held the flashlight for my son but we had to keep him from getting too close the the washing machine. Otherwise, he would have crawled under it. Not a good idea.
