I performed the repair the same as outlined in the video, but I didn't need to tip the washer on the back side. Once I removed the sheetmetal, I was able to swap out the drive coupler, and the new part is a better design than the one that broke.

Drum wasn't spinning during spin cycle.

I followed the directions in the two videos that were provided on your web sight. It fixed the problem and it only cost us about $60.00. We were so thrilled with the results. We were almost ready to go buy a new washer. My wife suggested that we look it up on line and see if we couldn't fix it ourselves before spending the money on a new washer. Was she ever right! Thanks for providing such fine instructional videos.

Leaned the washer forward, removed the old hose and clamped on the new one. It took all of 5 minutes. The part was delivered in two days. I couldn't be happier with our experience.

Drum not spinning!

Watched the on site video.....Did everything except removing the cabinet....Laid the washer on the front side and did the repair underneath in less than 30 minutes.....I might add the new coupler is much better than the original which was all white plastic....The new part was nylon and had metal inserts. The original had no inserts. Some have said the original part that had the two flat sides would just round out causing the drum not to agitate or spin. Mine just broke in half. I don't see this new part breaking or rounding out the metal inserts.....I might add Whirlpool OEM part was costing much more and with a 5 business day wait on delivery....Parts Select 1.8 day was advertised and it came in two days.....You won't go wrong doing business with Part Select.

Two out of six interlocking spokes of the plastic flex-coupling hubs had broken off due to years of service. Contributing factors were running heavy bath towels.

Was going to "...just take it apart and fix it" as my career covered being a mechanic, machinist and vocational instructor for over 35 years. Just in case. I decided to visit the PARTSELECT" website for "How-To" guidance. There I fund excellent troubleshooting guidance, including root-cause analysis in % of likeliest cause(s). This was followed with a brief step-by-step descriptions of "How-To" activities, including necessary tools. Best of all was the short instructional video, showing exactly how to go about the repair in a safe and systematic manner. As a former instructor, I am truly impressed by the quality of the material and service this website offers! It made my job so much easier, and consequently it was well done in no time. I urge every customer to follow the excellent guidelines and strongly recommends this site to others. Total cost of my repair was $11.00 for the part, plus shipping; saving me a bundle and possible grief and frustration! The website gives great customer service off- and on-line with follow through by courteous personnel. Thank you for the superior customer service and level of support at every step!

would not agitate

  • Customer: art from denver, CO
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers

searched the internet for the problem, saw video on you tube, bought the part & repaired/replaced the couplers. You have to make sure the couplers are all the way on the shafts, so the washer can be reassembled correctly. After it was reassembled, the machine would not go through the cycles. Apparently unrelated, the lid switch had become defective. I ordered the part & fixed the problem. That repair is also on you tube.

Cold water would not run or just drip into tub.

I watched the video provided on-line when I ordered the part. When the part arrived, I did just what the video showed to do. The mounting bracket was a little different style than what I took off, but holes lined up for the screws. I didn't have much space to do the work, such as tipping the outside body of the washer forward to get to the back panel, but after wrestling with it a short time I managed to get it opened enough to make the swap of the inlet valve. Hooked everything back up, turned on, checked for leaks, and it was a perfect repair. And a woman at that...

Washer stopped draining

I adopted the washer in a rental unit. The tenant told me it made a series of loud noises and just stopped. My "go to" source is always Partselect, after entering the symptom(s) I noted the potential problems...it was then time to tear into the machine. First was the pump which was not broken or seized up, I then manually turned the shaft on the motor...it was spinning freely. After unclamping and removing the motor the problem was obvious...the coupler assembly had seen better days (it was broken in two), this was a very inexpensive and simple repair ($18 including shipping). I highly recommend viewing the you tube video on the parts page...it was very helpful. This is my 2nd appliance repair using Partselect, the 1st was just as easy although a bit more time consuming as I had to take an entire dryer apart to replace a broken wheel assembly deep inside the machine. I will be using Partselect everytime I feel I can handle the project. It saved me a bundle from having to call a repair person.

Washer Leaking

  • Customer: Kathy from Springfield, OH
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers, Wrench (Adjustable)

This is a not for men only job. The worst part was taking the flimsy, rusty-on-the-inside case on and off. If you've never done it before, I would recommend photographing each section that you take apart so you can more easily see how it goes back together. The video is a great help for general ideas, but unless your model is exactly like that one there may be other parts. Wiggling the clamps off the hoses wasn't easy as the wrench kept slipping of the clamp ends. Finally I figured out that a wrench that clamps on and stays put was the right answer. Replacing the pump was easy--just like in the video. Now I have a secondary problem: the water now gushes out of the standpipe when the water exits the tub. I think the pump is better than the last one even before it broke, so the water is coming out too fast. I found a little part that makes the exit hole on the drain hose a lot smaller, plus I covered it with a stocking in case the part came flying off. Last time I tested it only about a cup of water came out of the pipe. I think there may be air in the pipe, so I have some things to try for that but at least I feel like I'm going in the right direction. This site is great--I already paid for one professional repair and the washer isn't worth another one but I'd like to keep it running for a few more months anyway.

Water leaking from under the middle of the front panel.

I watched the video on the Partselect website. Appled the same technique for my machine and the repair was just as easy. Unplugged the washer, removed two screws from the top panel, flipped it up and removed the two brackets that hold the cabinet in place. Removed the cabinet, the pump is right in front held on by two clamps. Removed the clamps, unhooked the hoses, put the new pump in attached the hoses and the clamps. I then put the cabinet back together and the repair was complete, wash machine is running again with no leaks.
