With no broke springs I thought that they might be weak so I ordered them but didn't install them as I found that the basket had a drag at one point of turning it, so I took it down to the clutch and found the nylon arm that released the brake had the small pins broken off. This would cause the brake to not release full enough that the eccentricity in it had a drag spot during the spin causing tremendous vibration. To disassemble I took the transmission off and the basket off and install new clutch assembly with the basket laying horizontal on a table. I did notice that the new clutch only had three pads on the band and the old one had six. I called you back with no satisfaction, but was given the phone # of the manufacturer and they confirmed that theirs had six pads but the part # checked out so I installed it. It now sits basically still during a cycle. I made and supervised the making of parts in a machine shop all my working carrier and I don't understand the weak link of the nylon pins milled / molded on a part that takes a lick from the actuator every cycle. It appears to me it was made to break, but it is about 20 years old. Thanks for your video help on the tube. Fred

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!!!

It was easy! I unplugged washer, unscrewed screws holding knob panel to washer and rotated it back. Removed brakets with a screw driver that hold washer cabnet down. Pushed cabnet forward. Unplugged electric connection to lid switch. Removed lid switch wires from brakets under washer cabnet. Unscrewd neutral connections. Unscrewed old lid switch from washer cabnet. And then put it all back together with new switch. It took maybe 20 minutes. So Easy even a girl could do it.

I removed the screws behind the top unit of the washer and flipped back the top to expose the wiring. I disconnected the wiring from the old lid switch. I tilted back the outer shell of the washer and moved it back off of the wash basin part. I removed the wiring from the harness along the underside of the shell and unscrewed the screws holding the broken switch in place. I installed the new switch in its place and ran the wiring through the harness. I put the shell back on the base and reattached the power clip. I closed the top unit and reattached the screws in the back and the washer was back and working.

Washer would start and stop and finally just quit working

First, the part I needed was easy to identify because the website broke down the major sections of the washer and the components of each major section providing illustrations. And, it was fairly easy to repair my washer because the website provided a video that showed me how to do it. I probably would have finished fixing my washer in an hour but believe me....after washing clothes for 5 years...you will want to seriously clean the interior of the machine!!! That's what took me so long to finish the job. I aint exactly a DIY kind of guy without a friend to assist (two heads better than one) but I sure felt like an expert when I finished and the washer worked. I HIGHLY recommend anyone needing to fix an item to use PARTSELECT.

We watched the repair video on the site twice and then were easily able to change out the lid switch assembly using a screwdriver and socket wrench. Prior to finding your site, we were searching new washers at a minimum of $700, so this saved us A LOT and was not time-consuming at all.

Washer would not empty

I watched the videos on the PartSelect website:- extremely helpful! My machine configuration was a little different from that in the video but this was not a problem. Both parts were very simple to remove and install. The only problem was refitting the unit consisting of the washer front, two sides and top. The video warns of the need to ensure that the two sides properly engage in the lugs on the base. Once I realized that I could look through the top (hold the lid open) to help with the repositioning, the task was simple. If I had noticed this earlier, the repairs would have taken less than 30 minutes.

First, watch the video. Its dead on. Started to watch it a second time after the part arrived, but decided not to. Should have!!! Disassembly went just like the video...very smooth. Forgot a few steps on the re-assembly and had to do it over twice. If I'd re-watched the video I'd have been done in 20 minutes. Machine works great now. Thanks for your help and instructions. Saved me $450.00

I unscrewed the two screws in the back of the machine on each side of the top. After gently lifting it up and taking a peek inside I saw two clamps holing the back to the washer, I used a flat head screw driver to work them loose and put them to the side. After removing the top, it exposed the switch connection where you plug in the end of the switch. pushing the body forward exposed the rest of the switch. using a philip head screw driver I unscrewed the two screws under the lip to release the switch from the washer body and used a small socket to unscrew the screw for the ground. Two clips hold the assembly underneath the inside of the top of the body they slide on so you can pry them off and then pinch the ends so they will hold again. after installing the assembly lower the body back down,reinstall clamps that hold back to washer body making sure the back slides under the control board top, reinstall screws and you're ready to wash again.
