Watched a youtube video first. Thats where I saw the ad for Part Select. It didn't go as smooth for me as it did for the guy in the video. Mine was rusty but a little oil spray a hammer and screw driver got it done. I'm glad your site has pictures of the parts. It helped me get the right part the first time.

I watched the Video Twice and really this was an Easy Repair. The Clutch Assembly was Worn. Another thing was that one of the Mounting Bolts that holds the Transmission in Place was never Installed at the factory. This is very critical. This washing Machine always was kind of Noisy, but not no more. It Spins the water out of the clothes now and the Machine is alot quieter. At least a $600.00 Savings.

Using the video that was supplied with my confirmation of my order. I followed the video to the "T" and everything went great. That is very helpful to have those videos. Who keeps their manuals for 10 years or more. I think the repair even took me less time than the video estimated. I would definetly order from this company again. Sears wanted 3 times the price and 15-16 days longer to get the part. I ordered the part on Sunday and had it Tuesday.

Simple and quick. 1) Unhooked water pipe connections on the back of the washer, 2) Unscrewed the two screws holding the head(the switch,dials panels)that also hold the back panel and popped two clips hold the head to the outer cover, 3) unhooked the electric swich harness and tilt the head panel backward over the back cover, 4) slide the washer outer cover housing, 5) leaned the washer drum and motor on it's back, 6) unscrewed the small screws holding pump clips and removed both clips, then pull the pump straight up, then did the same to the screws and clips holding the moter. Took the direct coupling and fit them into the shaft...installing is just reversed...Washer tested working perfect.

I unhooked the two motor brackets, dropped the motor down out of the way, separated the coupling into three parts and slid them in place one at a time. I had to tap them a little with the hammer to get them on the shaft. I put the motor back in place and was done. It worked great and took about 20 minutes.

I googled the problem and up popped partselect.com with the part that was probably needed. The part was priced very low and shipped very quickly. After ordering on Tuesday I received the part on Friday. It was rated as being an easy fix. I watched the video provided and followed the video instructions step by step. The only hard part was snapping the motor clip back into place.

I first thought that the fan belt came off. Got the cloths out of machine, and tipped on over to look under, where I discovered that there was no fan belt. Looked online for answers, and found that machine was direct drive. Looked around under machine for something damaged or broke. Saw the direct drive coupling was cracked into three pieces. Ordered the part I was 95% sure I needed, and it was at my house in less than 48 hours. Watched a video on how to replace the direct drive coupling. This was amazing and easy to use information. Made me feel like a pro. The video covered everything you could imagine for the repair, step by step. Machine runs now as good as new.

Repair went really well thanks to the video PartSelect had posted with the drive motor coupling. It showed me how to take machine apart to replace the coupling. Loved the step-by-step instructions. Made it so easy for my son and me to do together and I am a female.

Website very helpful in visually locating and purchasing the part. Utube video also helpful. Took 30 minutes to disasemble and about 1 hour to reassemble. Works great! Biggest issue is laundry rooms are small spaces to work in and washer/dryer units are big! Thanks bill

Removed the top part of the electronic panel. Removed the top lid. Removed the old tub springs and replaced them with new ones. Works great and for only $20.00. It beats buying a new washer. Thanks!

Drum moves and strange noise when spinning

When I pulled the machine out, I noticed one of the suspension springs on the floor. I followed the video supplied by PartSelect.com and suggestions by other folks. I started with the spring that was missing, which was a mistake since I did not know that there are custom spring clips which hold the spring to the drum. Once I found the missing part the installation was very easy. I used the suggestion by another post, of wedging a block of wood between the back of the machine and drum, to relax the rear suspension spring, which eliminated having to remove the back of the machine or tipping the machine on the back to get at the screw. I will always look to PartSelect.com for any future appliance repairs. You are the greatest
