I generally followed the video. Disconnected the water hoses, removed the front, laid the washer on its back. My water pump is rusted onto the motor shaft so I left it in place. I removed the water pipes from the pump then removed the pump/motor/gearbox as one unit. Watch out for more water than you think being released from the pipes and pump!! Everything works well with the new clutch fitted.

Noticed the agitator was not engagine and slipping

Took the softener mechanism off by pulling upward. Pried off the cap to the agitator with a screw driver then removed the center bolt with a nut driver. This did take a little effort since it had never been removed. Pulled the agitator out of the washer and cleaned all the parts of any soap residue accumulated over the years. Took the agitator and stood it on the floor placing both feet on the sides and pulled it apart. there is a ring inside that popped out along with the top part of the agitator and the small cogs fell out. Cleaned the two pieces and replaced the cogs, holding the main part upside down lowered the agitator bottom into place matching the four grooves after snapping the unit together slide the cog cover into place and gently replaced the agitator back into the washer and replaced the bolt tightly. Then snapped the softener attachment back into place. This required a good bit of pressure but snapped right into place. Done job. Saved a lot of money and a simple fix to a problem. Agitator now works just as it should, no slippage at all. Took about 30 min all together. You can go online to find installation directions for any brand washer that has a full size agitator.

There was a buzzing sound when washer was turned on and did not work in spin cycle.

Thurs. followed video directions, found the dogs to be defective and around 2 pm ordered dogs on line. To my surprise, on Friday around 11 am the dogs arrived. My husband installed them and the agitator is fine. I was so amazed at how quickly the dogs came. The machine was ready to go in less than a day. Thank you for your efficiency.

After my brother told me what the problem was. I looked on line to find the best deal for the part. I was thrilled to find a video on how to change the part. My back was bothering me so I walked my daughter through the process. She did great and she was pretty impressed that I knew how to change the part. I wanted to take the credit, but had to fess up. I did tell her I'm not just another pretty face!!!

Cold water filled very slowly

Looked at the instructions on PartSelect - they were very accurate even though my model was slightly different than the one in the video. Took the screws off the top 2 sides, removed the 4 off the back. Then tilted the top part towards the rear of the machine. The next part was really described well - "tilt the cover of the machine back" - I did but I was glad that my son was holding the rear panel because you really disengage the cover from the rear panel and it is a little flimsy. Ater that, the removal of the old part and install of the new was very simple. I did mark the hot water hose so I knew which outlet to put it on. Once I put it back together and tightened down the hoses, it worked like new. GREAT instructions from PartSelect. THANK YOU!

My 17 year old grandson patiently took the cabinet apart and removed the motor. After providing model#, serial#, and motor #, we received a new motor in only two days. He had it back together in about an hour and a half -- and it worked perfectly. What a pleasant experience!

Disconnect Power, then water supply and drain lines. Remove all hex head screws holding rear panel onto machine. Unsecure white plastic tab on bottom of rear panel by twisting and pushing through rear panel. Remove 2 screws securing control panel to top of machine. Swivel panel up, remove two gold colored (zinc flashed) steel clips that hold panel to machine. Rear panel should be mostly detached from the rest of machine, complete disassembly by pushing water dispensing manifold tabs through slots in rear panel and by removing electrical connections and water lines from faulty water inlet valve. Assemble new inlet valve, install in reverse of removal.

1) Unplugged power to the machine. 2)Disconnected the water inlet hoses and the drain hose. 3)Placed the washer on the front of the cabinet. 4) Moved the washer to an area large enough to allow it to be laid down and worked on. 5)Removed the sound deading panel from the bottom of the washer. 6)Disconnected the electrical plugs from the motor. 7)Disconnected the two hoses to the pump. 8)Removed the two strap retaining bolts from top of the motor. 9) Removed the two motor retaining straps. 10) Removed motor and pump assembly from the transmission. 11) Removed the broken drive coupler and replaced it with the new coupler. 12)Reassembed in reverse order.
