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

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.

Found input to gearcase deformed, so new coupler slipped under load. Replaced gearbox. All function restored, but machine banged harshly during spin. Discovered that "skid plate" had shifted during gearbox replacement. Remounted skid plate carefully with pry bar, correcting vibration.

I have never fixed a washer, but this website made it very easy. I watched the video so there were no surprises. I unpluged the machine and disconnected the water lines and removed the two back screws. The control panel and shell came of very easy, i then tipped the washer on to its backand removed the clamps holding the motor. The motor came out very easy and the coupler was a cinch to put in. After that I reversed the process and then the wife was happy she got her washer back, Iwas happy too because I didnt have to buy a new one.

I pulled up PartSelect, compared their advice with my problem, ordered a direct drive motor coupling for my particular model, received the delivery, and called a friend who's good at home repairs and who happens to be dating my sister. He was delighted to comply with our request (her clothes get laundered here) and he had no problem with either the repair itself or the part we ordered. Replaced the hoses, too. He said the new part had been improved over the old one, but everything fit together just like it should. Then I washed her work jeans. Success! I know this isn't what you're asking, but I was so pleased to have the correct part ready to go so he didn't have to mess around. It wouldn't have taken the afternoon, but I had to clean everything that had accumulated debris in 10 years of use as he went.

We followed the step by step video that you had posted for those parts. It is now working wonderfully. The repair man had told us it could not be repaired. Thank you so much for having these do it yourself instructions.

Followed the video did not need to tilt machine over. Layed on floor it was more comfortable. The most difficult part was putting back on the tension band on top that's because I got a little tired on the food. Thanks for all your help. I bet I saved over $250.00 if a service tech came to fix this. You guys are the best

Motor coupling broke

  • Customer: Wade from Presque Isle ME
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins

Once you take the housing off it's only two clips to remove the water pump from the motor, then two screws and two more clips to remove the motor itself. One issue I ran into was the new coupling was hard to put on, so the first time I did I overheated the motor because it was binding (was also very hard to get the motor back on). After taking it apart again, and slightly tapping both couplings with a hammer the motor went on very easy and washer works like a champ!

The washer was going to be thrown away because of the leak, a new one was purchased. I said I would take the old washer and look into repairing it.I went online and saw a video on how to replace these defective parts, upon seeing how quick and easy this repair could be made, paired with the extremely small expense for parts ( 48.00 including shipping!), I chose to repair the washing machine. After the repair was completed, I donated the machine to a friend and spiritual advisor, an Orthodox Bishop.

one thing that you do not need to do is to remove the pump from the motor, I tried to remove it as per the instructions but the pump cracked,remove both inlet and outlet hoses from the pump and remove the pump and motor together, don't try to take them apart, you don't need to, thanks
