I ordered the part and it was delivered in 3 days! I viewed the video again and installed the lid switch. It was just that easy. It went exactly per the video! I will use PartSelect the next time I have an appliance problem. I figure I saved at least $100.00 and got it done in less time (shipping and all) than the repair people could get me in! Thanks PartSelect!

I made my husband watch the video which gave him general idea of how to replace the lid switch. Our model is a bit different but basically the same and he didn't have any problems with the replacement. And it gave me a chance to clean underneath - yippee! Thank you so much - the website was very helpful!! I'd recommend it to anyone!!

Low flow of cold water into tub

Unplugged washer. Shut off hot and cold water. Pulled the washer away from the wall slightly to remove the hoses. Once disconnected I pulled the washer out further. Removed the two screws holding faceplate. Then popped the two tabs, allowing the tub cover to be removed. Disconnected the wire connector from the pins, and then removed the tub cover. I was then able to disconnect the water inlet valve. I replaced the water inlet valve, the internal hose and the two clamps. Then did the above in reverse order.

There was a loud bang, the smell of burnt rubber, and the washer tub stopped rotating, although all other functions seemed to still work.

Flipped the machine on its front, noticed a pile of black rubber dust, identified where the dust was from. Took some time moving pieces around to get access to the coupling. Finally got it off and saw that 4 of the 6 plastic pins that hold the rubber piece had snapped off. Ordered the part and waited a couple of days (the site said 5-8 days or something but it only took 2). Wife got tired of broken washer spread all over the place but I didn't want to move it until I got the part. It was more challenging to get the part in than it was to take it apart because there's not much room to get your hand where it needs to be. I ended up flipping the machine a few times until I got it where gravity was pulling the motor down, giving me enough access to put the part in. My biggest fear was that the hoses weren't tight enough and that I'd have to take it out again, but it was fine and everything's worked great since.

followed repair instruction,( bought on line and down loaded ) some instructions were unclear but when you have the machine apart its obvious. your parts breakdown helped more than the instructions once the cabinet was opened.

I unhooked the two motor brackets, dropped the motor down out of the way, separated the coupling into three parts and slid them in place one at a time. I had to tap them a little with the hammer to get them on the shaft. I put the motor back in place and was done. It worked great and took about 20 minutes.

the old pump was weeping water around the shaft

I lifted the machine up with one hand while lying on the floor and installed the new pump after aligning the motor shaft to the pump. I then snapped the pump onto the motor shaft and added the top and bottom "keeper snaps". That was it.

Many kudos to the folks who posted here. The instructions with the part didn't help much, but your comments did. I found it quite easy to replace the retaining clips using a pair of pliers at their wide setting to press the clip back into place. Oh, and when you tip the washer over, have a can of bug spray handy, you might be upsetting a black widow or two.

Water leak coming out front of washer

  • Customer: Ramo from sylvan grove, KS
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins

When water started pouring out of our washer, I removed the pump. A pair of pliars removes the two hose clamps, and there are two clips that you remove with your hands to get the pump off. The pump looked fine, so I took it to the sink, and put some water in it. I then plugged one hose "port" with my hand and blew hard into the other. Water squirted out. There was a fine crack in th eplastic of the pump. I mixed up some 2 part epoxy and put it over the crack. This fixed the problem for a little over a month. Then the pump got more leaks, so I ordered a pump from here, that arrived in 2 days. I quickly replaced it, and it works great.
