Looked on line and found the cheapest repair for my symptoms seemed to be the tub wear pads. Disconnected the washer, tilted it to where I could inspect the pads and discovered one was missing. So ordered a set, (Only complaint was the shipping was as much as the part). Parts arrived in 2 Days (!). Tilted the washing machine again...reached up with a small flathead screw driver and pryed the old pads off...snapped the new ones on (takes a little pressure, so eat your wheeties)...and job done. Stood everything back up and re-connected hoses, drain and plug...Works like brand new...Unfortunately for the wife who thought she was going to get a new one....LOL

Luckily enough the washer shown in the demonstration is my exact model, which eliminated any variables I may have come across. The repair was relatively easy and probably could of been done in less time but I took every step slowly to avoid breaking something or leaving something unattached. For the money and time spent on this repair I would certainly recommend this for anyone with a similar issue. After taking the machine completely apart, i found that the suspension pads were still properly functioning. Since i had already purchased them with the tub wear pads, I changed them anyway. The trickiest part for me was pulling the outer tub out because the shaft on my unit was very rusted had a considerable amount of buildup on it. During this step I was very careful to remove all the build up because there is a single rubber seal between the center opening of the tub and the motor shaft. After I made sure the shaft was completely smooth and there were no protrusions I gently rocked the tub back and forth while applying pressure from the underside of the tub, all the while making sure that the seal didn't fold in on itself or stretch in any direction. Other than that, the repair went very quickly and easily . The spanner wrench is a must !!! I actually found it on amazon for about 6 dollars and I'm positive I will find another use for it somewhere down the road. I owe a big thank you to Steve. (the guy in the video) and everyone else from parts select for making laundry day in my house tolerable again !!!

The washer would intermittently not spin for the last 5 months. Water would drain on the spin cycle but not spin. Read several websites on the problem but only one hit it exactly.

First watched YouTube video "Kenmore/Whirlpool washer not spinning", excellent video .Disconnected water hoses and drain hose. Unplugged the washer from the outlet. Removed the agitator from the washer tub then tipped the washer backwards resting on a secure block of wood for support not fully on the floor. Removed under insulation, removed both water pump hoses. Have towels ready when hoses are removed, there is still water in the hoses. Removed the water pump, disconnected the electrical connector from the pump motor, removed the bolts from the motor that attached the motor clips, removed the motor clips from the bracket and removed the motor assembly. Video shows motor, bracket and gearbox removed as one unit. Very heavy. Remember motor position on the bracket for reassembly, I used yellow marker. Removed the bracket the mounts the motor. Removed the bolts for the gearbox and began to lower the gearbox. The agitator shaft on the gearbox is pretty long so I had to tilt the washer some more to remove. After the gear box was removed I could now see the spin clutch, which according to the video was definitely bad. PartSelect had the correct part, reasonably priced. Ordered normal FedEx delivery, part arrived in 2 business days. Instructions came with the part for very easy installation. Installed the new clutch and reassembled the washer. Before reconnecting the washer hoses and drain, I plugged in the washer, manually placed timer on spin, washer spun, could not see spin but felt washer in spin cycle. Reattached water and drain hoses. Filled washer empty with cold water and placed timer again in spin cycle. Water drained, no leaks under washer or from hoses, spin cycle good. Repair done, works great.

I followed the helpful video from PartSelect. Removal and Replacement of the Clutch Assembly was fairly easy. Just make sure you have enough towels to dry up any water that may come out after tipping the washing machine over. After Replacement the washing machine works like new. Thanks PartSelect.

Would not spin out all the water from clothes

Similar to the youtube repair video, followed it mostly. This model has a different plug in set up on top where the wiring is. Just unplugged a different plug in a different location. The other difference is that I did a lot of dusting and vacuuming of inside parts and around motor. Also used some spray on rust converter on some rust spots then coated those areas with spray paint. Also where wire harness hooks to the frame I taped up a longer section of the wire to keep the wires together so they could move around and not be damaged. The actual repair took about a half hour, but took more time taking the washer outside on porch then back into the house. Out side repair is better because a significant amount of water came out of the washer and drain hose when we tilted it on the back to remove motor and transmission. Just follow the youtube video instructions and most people should have little or no problems doing the job.

Chlothes were coming out wet at the end of the cycle.

Parts select gives you the top solutions for the problem you are having. This suggested a clutch, and upon looking at mine I could see it was displaced. I watched the instructional video, and it was spot on. It told me how to from beginning to end and it worked out perfectly. I spent about an hour of my time, spent $38, and my machine is fixed. Thank you Parts select for the free video, I couldn't have done it without it.

Removed the the drain hose from the pump. Removed nut from the agitator. Then laid the washer on its back after removing the inlet hoses. took out the pump, remove wire harness from motor then removed the motor. removed the three bolts holding in the the transmission. The one mistake I made was that I removed the springs for the brake shoes and this cause me to have a lot of trouble trying to put them back on. Once the clutch arrived, I removed the old clutch from the transmission shaft, and installed the new clutch using all the parts that came with it. Then put everything together in the reverse order that they were removed in.

The spin cycle was super slow leaving clothes soaking wet at the end of a full wash cycle. Ordered a clutch repair kit, watched the how to video that was e-mailed to me with my order while I did the repair and got it done in about 45 minutes. This was my first true appliance repair outside of maybe a busted fuse or replacing the heating element in a stove. Never thought taking the motor, transmission and clutch out of the washer and putting all back together would be so very simple. Meanwhile my wife is pissed because she thought she might be able to go get a brand spankin new washer...until I fixed the old one. Thanks for saving me some dough PartSelect.

The clutch itself was fairly easy to repair. I did use some tips from youtube on disassambly, and the enclosed instructions helped to put the clutch in. There were 3 bolts I had to remove to take the drive assembly off, and 1 to pull the agitator out. And putting it back together it went in almost backwards. All in all, this is a fairly simple procedure in taking the time to complete the steps
