After calling repair services locally and getting outrageous estimates, just to come and see and telling it will cost at least upwards of $ 150.00, decided to look at fixing it myself. Did not want to buy a new unit, as we are building a new house and wanted time to evaluate a new pair later next year. I wanted to put this unit in the garage of the new house, Partselect site was very informative with the symptoms of the problem and required parts and the best feature was the "how to videos". Watched the videos twice and decided I will give it a try. Ordered the parts, which came promptly despite the Thanksgiving holidays (I had to just handwash some essential clothes only once). Watched the videos again and replaced the cam dogs, which we're completely worn out and in pieces. Next replaced the motor couplings. Had a hard time putting back the washer cover, as I had to jiggle it to align. Washer Works like a charm. Saved $$. Partselect should consider bundling the agitator grease with cam dogs. Did not use any grease as I had none. Overall great satisfaction. Thanks.
