I watched the instructional video on part select and did exactly what the technician did. Easy as cake!

My washing machine would stop after the drum loaded with water and agitation finished. It would not move onto the rinse/spin cycle.

I was able to diagnose the problem because I saw the broken part hanging down, and after I called an appliance repair company and described the issue, I was quoted $280.00! I'm a newbie handi-woman, so I really appreciated the video that was posted on the partselect.com web page along with the lid switch part information. I placed my laptop nearby, got my tools out and watched, paused and performed the steps. Make sure you leave yourself enough time to clean out underneath and around the washing machine after you remove the washing machine cabinet, because if you're a clean freak like me, after 16 years, a lot of muck had accumulated. The repair was easy enough, I probably had the most difficulty with lining up and reattaching the cabinet back to the washing machine body. Overall, a good do-it-yourself project, and I am thankful to partselect.com for the awesome service and great repair video they had available.

Googled problem "Washer won't Spin", or something like that.This led to a video (showing my problem) on YOU TUBE by Parts Select which led to the wedsite for Parts Select. Wedsite showed my problem and solution. Entered make and model. The part was available, I ordered it. When it I place my laptop by machine and followed the instructions, step by step. 1. Unplug power. 2. Disconnect water supply. 3. Unsrew (2) screws on the top rear electronics housing. 4.Unscrew (2) screws at the front of the electronics housing. 5. Flip the housing to the back. (my model was a little different I had some clips I had to move around) 6. remove the metal clips that hold the lid / front cabinet from the rear. 7. Disconnect the little power coupling. 8. Pick the lip / shell up slightly upward from the rear to detach cabinet from base. 9. slide forward. 10. Unscrew the lid switch ( you could have done this before). 11. GO underneath the cabinet and detach the lip switch from the clips and there is one screw. 12. remove the old switch. 13. Replace the new in reverse order. 14. Replace the cainet back on the base, raise up slightly and make sure the little pegs go into the little slots that are in the front of the base. (you'll feel it snap into place). 15. Gently let down the rear of the cabinet. (It to should snap into place). 16. Replace all the connections in reverse order. 17. Connect water supply 18. Connect power. 19. GET BACK TO WASHING CLOSE.

I followed the exact steps shown in the "how to" video supplied on-line. No unexpected problems were encountered. It was easy to place the parts order, the pricing is good and delivery is fast. Any future repairs needed to be made on my appliances will be alot easier to fix. Thanks.

The fix was super easy. The parts were less then the shipping and had my parts one day ahead of the estimated time on the internet. It was a Bing Bang Boom project that saved the fiance and me a few bucks.

well the replacement of the directional cogs was easy, once i was able to separate the the top and bottom half of the actual agitator. What i could not find out about my whirlpool gold was their was 4 plastic tabs that held the whole cog assembly onto the agitator. i could not pull it apart like all the videos were showing, until i took it to a repair shop and he showed me. After i used a hammer with a screwdriver to break the plastic tabs, it popped right apart. The actual repair only took about 30 min. once i was able to get the agitator apart.

The directional cogs wore out
