followed the video on the web site and repair was amazingly easy. I have two of these machines, and this same part went bad about 1 1/2 year ago, so this time i was ready for everything. Took everything apart, got rid of old broken part, replaced with new, and Bam, washer back up and running, less than 30 minutes, I am limited on space in my basement, so i didn't turn machine on its back, i did it in the upright position, just utilized some wood blocks to hold the motor during part change, and a hand spring clamp to hold pump and hoses out of my way after removing the clips that hold it on. It's not rocket science, if i can do it so can you. Good luck

The repair was easy and the video tutorial was great. That was the easy part. I also had to replace the drain pan and getting it in and out of the pan is no easy task. Plus when you have not moved the washer in 10 years there is some cleaning to do. I would not hesitate to do it myself again. It cost me $20 and some sweat equity.

I adopted the washer in a rental unit. The tenant told me it made a series of loud noises and just stopped. My "go to" source is always Partselect, after entering the symptom(s) I noted the potential problems...it was then time to tear into the machine. First was the pump which was not broken or seized up, I then manually turned the shaft on the motor...it was spinning freely. After unclamping and removing the motor the problem was obvious...the coupler assembly had seen better days (it was broken in two), this was a very inexpensive and simple repair ($18 including shipping). I highly recommend viewing the you tube video on the parts page...it was very helpful. This is my 2nd appliance repair using Partselect, the 1st was just as easy although a bit more time consuming as I had to take an entire dryer apart to replace a broken wheel assembly deep inside the machine. I will be using Partselect everytime I feel I can handle the project. It saved me a bundle from having to call a repair person.

Drum not spinning!

Watched the on site video.....Did everything except removing the cabinet....Laid the washer on the front side and did the repair underneath in less than 30 minutes.....I might add the new coupler is much better than the original which was all white plastic....The new part was nylon and had metal inserts. The original had no inserts. Some have said the original part that had the two flat sides would just round out causing the drum not to agitate or spin. Mine just broke in half. I don't see this new part breaking or rounding out the metal inserts.....I might add Whirlpool OEM part was costing much more and with a 5 business day wait on delivery....Parts Select 1.8 day was advertised and it came in two days.....You won't go wrong doing business with Part Select.

Two out of six interlocking spokes of the plastic flex-coupling hubs had broken off due to years of service. Contributing factors were running heavy bath towels.

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!

Lost the spin cycle and had a rumbling noise.

I performed the repair the same as outlined in the video, but I didn't need to tip the washer on the back side. Once I removed the sheetmetal, I was able to swap out the drive coupler, and the new part is a better design than the one that broke.

Drum wasn't spinning during spin cycle.

I followed the directions in the two videos that were provided on your web sight. It fixed the problem and it only cost us about $60.00. We were so thrilled with the results. We were almost ready to go buy a new washer. My wife suggested that we look it up on line and see if we couldn't fix it ourselves before spending the money on a new washer. Was she ever right! Thanks for providing such fine instructional videos.

would not agitate

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.

Well i'm an auto technician by trade so I just jumped right in without reading or watching anything, but I saw the video and in the days waiting for the part to show up I watched it. I would recommend everyone to watch the video because it is simpler than I made it.Easy repair any mechanical skills at all and you shouldnt ave any trouble.

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.

washer did not work after replacing agitatior parts

I was thrilled that the agitator parts were so easy to replace, but that didn't totally fix my problem. I looked underneath the washer and found black rubber shavings from a worn part and looked online and found that the problem was most likely the Direct Drive Motor Coupling. I watched the video and ordered the part. The coupling was actually broken. After replacing the part, the washer works great...better than it has in years. I think I will work on our dryer now.
