1. Asked the hubby to fix it. He said "I don't see what the problem is, how can I fix it if I don't know for sure if it is even broken?" I assured him that I do the laundry and the top piece is supposed to turn.

2. Typed my problem (the one with the washer, not the hubby) into Google. Found copious amounts of info. regarding my problem and how to fix it.

3. Ordered the necessary parts on this wonderful website.

4. Followed the directions of a friendly southern man on 'YouTube' and Batta Bing, Batta Boom - Ol' Betsy is roaring away again, just a churning my clothes in there - getttin' the job done.
