Tilted the washer on the side with my wife holding it. Pulled the pump out then replaced it with the new one.

The agitator had stopped working

  • Customer: Jack from Matthews NC
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Socket set

We got the parts, watched your video a couple of times and then began the repair. It went well with one exception. None of my socket extensions were long enough to work well. The required length might be added to the video and the printed installation instructions. Also it would have nice to have been able to order a small tube of the recommended lubricant. Overall I was very pleased. Jack

Had a lot of corrosion on the shaft area and had a hard time removing the inner tub but after some WD-40 and unprintable words and labor it popped off. Cleaned everything up, shaft, inner drum and outer drum. After that everything was a piece of cake. Thanks for the help!

Washer leaking

After watching some on-line vids, I determined it was the center post, or tub, gasket at the bottom. A cheap part, and easy to snap-out the old and snap-in the new - But - I had to dissassemble the washer into individual washer component molecules. Luckily, I'd done this recently to replace the clutch drive, then the motor, then this. Not too bad, really. Washer body off (2 screws and two snap-links); agitator out (7/16" socket on extension); bang off tub nut (heavy hammer and punch); bang off drive block (hammer again); and pull tub up an out. Tub drain disconnected (pliers); pull off level sensing tube; three spring mounts (nutdriver); then just yank tub up. Poke out Centerpost gasket; snap in a new one; reassemble. Piece of cake.

No spin on spin cycle

  • Customer: Thomas from Port Jervis NY
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins

Easy, If your drive block has an open top, it's worn. Look at a picture of a new drive block and compare. If it doesn't match, then you need a new drive block. Note: Also check the drive clutch and clutch liners or pads...they may be worn. In my case it was the drive block this time. So to start, take off the fabric softenner dispenser in the center of the washer. Then pull out the seal. then remove the bolt. and pull off the agitator assembly. after that tap off the lock nut with a punch and hammer or if you have the special spanner wrench tool, use that. Once removed, pull out the inner tub and then pull the drive block off the shaft. Put the new drive block on and reverse the procedure from there. Tap the lock nut tight with the punch and hammer while re-installing. I'm so glad I did this repair. $15 is so much better than just giving in and buying a new washer!!!

I followed the instructional video on the part page! I'm normally really awful with tools/handiwork, but the video was very precise with step-by-step instructions, and I was able to do the repair myself with no problem!

The video was very helpful and the written comments helped. The longest time was spent in reassmbling the front cover/top assembly onto the base.

Washer would not drain

The repair on this model did not require disconnecting the water supply or drain hoses as suggested in the video presentation because it didn't have to be tipped over. Just unscrew and tip over the control panel and remove the cabinet. The lid switch and water pump are then easily accessible. The lid switch was clearly broken by visual inspection. In a model this old replacing the pump at this cost is advisable, especially since it is easy accessible. Easy job. Machine now works fine.

the pump would not start after wash cycle. timer would not advance

Washer would not drain - cause:failed lid switch

Followed the excellent instructions and video.to replace the lid switch. As noted in some of the comments, a few people experienced difficulty in reinstalling the main enclosure so it would lock in place. I did too. Instructions to reverse the dis-assembly are precisely correct, ..key is to center then slide the front of the enclosure into place while enclosure is slightly tipped toward the front, then let the enclosure rotate back in place. Finally figuring out to follow the directions exactly was the most time consuming aspect of the job. BTW, found did not need to remove the hoses since could do the whole job essentially in place. Great diagnostic, great installation instructions. Still can''t figure out why switch needed to be shipped in such a big box.

water would not spin out

I did the job all by myself. Even though I paid with my husbands card and you think he did the repair, I did it! I watched the video and it could not have been easier. I surprised my husband and he was very proud. He would have bought a new washer but there was nothing wrong with this one. Two screws and two nuts. unplug the old one and plug in the new one. The clips were my hardest part but not overwhelming. Thanks so much.
