The video on the PartSelect site was exactly right. Knowing ahead of time exactly what I needed to do and what tools were needed allowed me to correctly schedule the time it would take to do the job. The part arrived very quickly.

There was not a clear test this, this or this in the trouble shooting. So the most repaired thing was the timer, which I got. That didn't work. The coupling was not a problem. The lid switch was the last thing to replace. In checking the coupling, the piping to the valves started leaking. The pipes there are thirty plus years old. The pipe nipples broke off when I tried to unscrew the valves. They were rusted through and could have blown through at any time. So the time added up in replacing the valves and nipples. I stumbled onto a website that showed how to make a jumper to test the lid switch. That could have been done with very little effort. If that had been on your web site it would have helped narrow the problem almost immediately. Getting the outer housing shell back on the base was a bit more difficult than shown. I got it done.

Wash cycle would not work.

I am a senior, a woman and have never made any such repair in the past, but have experience in easy electrical work, such as hanging fixtures, replacing switches, simple re-wiring of lamps. My washer is so old,(15+ years?) that the configuration of screws and plugs was different from that in the video, which I took the time to watch. However, once I knew that the control panel flips open, I could easily locate the right screws to remove and to unplug the leads of the lid switch. The clips holding the cabinet to the back wall of the washer were also similar and easy to remove and then to pull the cabinet off the machine. The old swith was broken off right at the two screws which hold it to the cabinet. I removed the old switch assembly as instructed, but faced another obstacle: the old switch plug-in had a different configuration of the male/female parts than the new part's plugs. So, my experience with rewiring came in handy. I ended up cutting off the plug end of both parts and replacing the new plug with my old one. I know this is unorthodox and would not recommend it to anyone who's not worked with electricity! I took special care to connect the wires so the connection would be in the back corner, farthest away from any moisture, and wrapped each connection and wire separately and copiously with electric tape, then wrapped the whole again in more tape. After re-assembling everything and turning the washer on, the cycle finished and the washer now works as good as new. Love this old machine!

Broken Lid Switch Assembly

Noticed that the screws holding the lid switch assembly were loose and discovered the plastic housing of the assembly had cracked. Since the assembly was broken and out of alignment the washing cycle would stop just before the drain segment. Ordered the replacement assembly and watched the online installation video. Had no problem opening the control panel and releasing springs holding the machine cover/sides to the control panel. Removed the broken part and installed new assembly. Only difficulty was tipping the machine cover/sides back into position and figuring out how to re-clip to the control panel. Total time for repair was about 10 minutes. You can do it! --- Suzy Homemaker

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.

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.

Washer would start and stop and finally just quit working

  • Customer: JOSE from KILLEEN TX
  • Difficulty: Easy

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.

With the instructional video they provided it's amazing how simple this repair was. Two screwdrivers, phillips and flat head, 5/16 nut driver and in about 20 min.I had the part replaced and the washer back together.
