Machine did not agitate

  • Customer: allen from Hazlet NJ
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers

Followed the video did not need to tilt machine over. Layed on floor it was more comfortable. The most difficult part was putting back on the tension band on top that's because I got a little tired on the food. Thanks for all your help. I bet I saved over $250.00 if a service tech came to fix this. You guys are the best

Motor coupling broke

  • Customer: Wade from Presque Isle ME
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
Once you take the housing off it's only two clips to remove the water pump from the motor, then two screws and two more clips to remove the motor itself. One issue I ran into was the new coupling was hard to put on, so the first time I did I overheated the motor because it was binding (was also very hard to get the motor back on). After taking it apart again, and slightly tapping both couplings with a hammer the motor went on very easy and washer works like a champ!

I watched the video once, ordered the part, watched it again when the part arrived, went downstairs and made the repair. The video was exactly correct! Hardest part was getting the washer case back in place, and that just took a few minutes. Excellent video!! I will check back here the next time I have a repair to make!! Thanks so much.

Washer would not operate without slamming the lid

  • Customer: Bruce from Harrisburg PA
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

Replaced the lid switch by pulling the washer out enough to gain access. Not necessary to disconnect the waster hoses. Remove the two screws from the white plastic tabs on the rear of the control panel. Also remove the two screws connecting the control panel from the washer body. Lift the lid slightly and pull the control panel forward. Disconnect the pug into the lid switch and remove the switch. Replace the switch but remember to lift the lid while doing so. Lid has a small arm that must engage the switch correctly. Replace the control panel and reinstall the screws. Repair is very simple.

No hot water through inlet valve

  • Customer: Greg from Lincoln NE
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Screw drivers

Taking the washer apart was no problem. I just looked on the Internet for a few tips. When removing the valve there was a little water leakage which could not be prevented. When replacing the valve it was not an exact match so I had to install the included bracket. The hard part was reinstalling the washer frame. You have to get both sides lined up to it on the bottom frame. That part would have been easier with another person. After finishing everything worked fine.

I took apart the cover of the washing machine, remove the back, and disconnected the hoses , also disconnect the controls,remove the pump and the motor,which are ben hold by two brackets, then proceed to remove the old parts and insert the new ones, the only problem is that they fit too tight and I used a round tool to insert the new ones, after that i put everything together and bingo, the machine is working already.

Motor did not turn drum and made sound

  • Customer: AL from Marlton NJ
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Socket set
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
Your video was very helpful in showing steps for repair so I didn't have to discover how to disassemble. The old Direct Drive Motor Coupling had three broken couplers on one side and a cracked center on the other. New Direct Drive Motor Coupling was a much improved design that should last even longer than original. The couplers metal sleeves and overall thicker part was what original should have been.

Hole in the drain hose.

This was a great buy!!! All the hose clips as well as the hose retainer came installed on the new hose (in the correct location) the hardest part was waiting for the part to arrive...it took me least three 2 minutes to install...if my dog had thumbs he could have replaced the drain hose.

Washer would not spin

I Googled "washer would not spin" and came upon the PartSelect YouTube video on replacing the motor coupling. Since this seemed easy enough (and I'm a 40-year-old Mom), I decided to take the washer apart as the video instructed just to see if I could find anything obviously broken or out of place. Low and behold, the rubber gasket around the coupling was broken and indicated the coupling probably was too. I ordered the part through the direct link on the YouTube video and easily put the new coupling on and VOILA! The only thing I'd recommend differently is that you leave the pump alone. It doesn't need to come off to get to the coupling. After wrestling with trying to remove the pump, I left it in place, but not before unknowingly damaging it. I had some rust build-up in there and it made the fit very tight and cracked the part/sleeve the motor drive plugs into. When the washer was reassembled I found I'd caused a leak. But...no biggie. I decided to replace pump, too. Hey, now I know how to! :) Just received that part yesterday and VOILA! It's amazing what you can accomplish with the internet. Don't be afraid of this task, ladies (and gentlemen).

Replaced the clutch - works great. HOWEVER - check the drain pump attached to the motor, there was a small sock clogging it up which also fixed the problem. I saved 600 bucks on not buying a new washing machine!!
