My son and I leaned the washer backward and I had my son hold it while I got underneath of it and unscrewed the two hose clamps to loosen the hoses, pulled them off. Then I flipped the two clamps holding the pump in place and the pump came right off and it took about 2 minutes. I ran into a little problem putting the new pump on because I wasn't getting the drive shaft lined up quite right, otherwise the whole thing would have only taken about 10 minutes total. As it was I got the pump mounted, repositioned the clamps and then hooked up the hoses...done! The design is perfect for ease of pump replacement; kudos to the engineers who designed it!

move machine away from wall---shut off water and remove hoses--loosen screws that hold valve on back wall---remove toplid, place to side--diconnect water line at tub----disconnect wires to valve,hot/cold---remove old valve with hose attached---take new valve and place new mount bracket on, little tricky did not line up at first must force plate to slid into plastic slot so screw hold lines up, without breaking new valve---once bracket on replaced all---used tape on inlet valves thread when supply hoses replaced--seems shorter than old valve--but tighten up OK no leaks

My washer leaked water in after wash cycle and cloths were wet after spin cycle. The cause of problem was defined in Parts Select trouble shooting guide. Replacement was just as the video described, except this model had two screws on front of control panel and the panel tipped back on hinges. Look at both sides of washers, so when you reinstall the body you know how it should look against the back panel. I didn't slide the whole washer body off, just tilted against a wall. Also, it's not necessary to get behind the washer, so the repair can be done in a tight laundry rooms like mine.

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.

my lid switch has been broken for years, I had a clamp on it and it would spin even with the lid open. no problem really, in fact now I forget to close the lid and - duhhhh-- it dosen't spin.

I watched a repair video, and did as told, except we put it back together wrong the first time and couldn't level it. the front of the cabinet wasn't "hooked " on the base on one side. Back-tracked and all went well the next time. Better than paying a repair bill.

Washer would not spin out

Followed the video provided from the website. It was pretty easy to understand. First removed two screws that hold the control knobs, flipped that back, removed the retaining clips that hold the top and back to the machine base. Disconnected the old lid switch, move the casing out, remove the two screws that hold the switch up, disconnect the ground wire. then basically in reverse to put it back together. The video provided was very helpful and the repair went quickly! hope to get another 10 years out of this machine.

Would not spin

Video's on parts select are a big help. Just followed the instructions. Only slight problem was the coupling's do not slide easily onto the shafts. I had to use a little lubricant and put a wood block across the opening and tap with a hammer. Maybe a little more than a tap. Also when I was ready to test the repair I found the washer would not stop filling. After much checking I found out on another repair site that the shutoff requires a certain water pressure to work properly. I hadn't opened the faucet fully. Once I did everything worked properly.

Water pump was cracked and leaking water

Turned washer on back, inspected pump area for leak and found crack in pump. Replaced cracked pump with new pump from PartSelect, which arrived promptly. Washer was only down for 3 days and turnup only cost me the price of the part.

Every time my wash got to the rinse or spin cycle it would stop running. I had to manually push the lid switch down and hold it in place to finish the load.

I followed the repair video to the tee! I took my tablet and placed it next to the washer and paused it in between steps long enough for me to do each step then started it again. Worked like a charm. I am 63 and did it all by myself with the help of your video. Had it done in under 30 minutes.
