remove top cap on agitator, remove seal from inside of agitator tube( seal looks like garbage disposer stopper)now you see top of bolt head, use 7/16 socket with a 12 inch extension, hold bottom of agitator to keep it from turning while removing bolt,pull up on agitator top to remove, remove assembly that holds the cog's,slide off retainer ring, replace with new cog's, (when reassembling match pins in bottom part of agitator to slots in top part of agitator.)install bolt, install seal(use some laundry detergent so it slides in easily),put cap of agitator back on. that's it

took top agitator off, cleaned it (needed anyway), replaced agitator directional cogs, replaced washer (old one was too soft to reseal) upon bolting back together. Oddly the repair kit on this website does not include a washer - I only bought the cogs - it turned out to use the same washer I use on my kegerator

watched the parts select video showing how it was done. from there it was a simple process. popped off the fabric softener cap, and the seal cap. then used the socket wrench to unscrew the bolt. took off the cog holder, and turned upside down. The video was great, because it perfectly explained how to position the Agitator Directional Cogs (dogs)when replacing. the ridge went face down into the slot. Put the holder back in, replaced the bolt, cap, etc. and it as finished. Again, this is an easy fix, and the video perfectly explained the process.

I googled the symptom and watched a video on youtube. From there, I jotted down my machine's model and serial number, and googled 'washing machine parts.' I found your web page to be user-friendly, ordered the agitator cog kit and 3 days later had the parts. It was simple to reassemble. Works like a champ!! I'm a 55 year old single woman.

Basin fills with water, tub doesn't spin, nor does pump engage

  • Customer: Kent from Tallahassee FL
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers

The symptoms gave every indication that power wasn't getting to the washer, other than to the control panel. By reaching over the tub I could feel the switch and push it down. It didn't feel right. No "click" and the lever seemed to have too much travel. The unit was in a rental property and was full of water and tenant clothing. Taking the washer apart to further diagnose the problem had drawbacks so I ordered the switch with high confidence that that was the failed part. The repair was simple. Remove the screws that hold down the control panel and that hold the case to the frame. Rock the case forward and the switch is easily accessible.

The washer filled with water and then stopped

  • Customer: WANDA from LANSDALE PA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers

We began by tracing the original lid switch wires to the front dial in the top cabinet. Once the screws to the top cabinet were removed, we were able to trace the wires and find out how the other end fit in. Through trial and error, we found out that the front of the washer could be pulled forward and lowered. We were then able to access, remove and replace the entire assembly.

The washer would not empty the water nor change to rinse cycle

I would definately not have been able to do it without the online video explanation. I followed the instructions carefully. If I had to do it again it would take much less time. i was very pleased with the result.

Well washer was not draining I went to Youtube and the lidswitch was described as possible problem. I watched the video on parts select also and followed the instructions. $30 repair Im sure local repairman would have taken me for at least $100. Easiest thing in the world to do on a Sunday afternoon. Thanks a million
