I watched a Part Select video on replacing the augitator and just followed the directions to replace the thrust washer (which was showing wear) and the washer. The instructions that came with the thrust washer were helpful as well.

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.

With no broke springs I thought that they might be weak so I ordered them but didn't install them as I found that the basket had a drag at one point of turning it, so I took it down to the clutch and found the nylon arm that released the brake had the small pins broken off. This would cause the brake to not release full enough that the eccentricity in it had a drag spot during the spin causing tremendous vibration. To disassemble I took the transmission off and the basket off and install new clutch assembly with the basket laying horizontal on a table. I did notice that the new clutch only had three pads on the band and the old one had six. I called you back with no satisfaction, but was given the phone # of the manufacturer and they confirmed that theirs had six pads but the part # checked out so I installed it. It now sits basically still during a cycle. I made and supervised the making of parts in a machine shop all my working carrier and I don't understand the weak link of the nylon pins milled / molded on a part that takes a lick from the actuator every cycle. It appears to me it was made to break, but it is about 20 years old. Thanks for your video help on the tube. Fred

Washer not draining or spinning?

  • Customer: Jerry from Donalsonville GA

Looking on line and seeing the video on how to repair or replace the lid switch made it a synch. Most commonly this is the problem it explained with these symptoms not draining or spinning after a working agitating wash load. I had noticed that it was agitating with the lid up so I surmised this switch was the problem as the video said. After viewing the directions finding the hidden two screws behind the trim it was a synch to follow the simple directions. Thanks for the info and the replacement part that was a perfect match. Washer is doing fine.

1) Slide retaining ring up 2) Remove old dispenser and toss out 3) Slip new dispenser on and lower retaining ring. Couldn't be simpler. I was surprised that I could actually get an exact replacement. Ordered it and two days later it was at my door. Great service!

I had no trouble replacing the pump very easy repair. The video did have one misleading point. It shows releasing the control panel with a putty knife. In my case there are phillips head screws to be removed. Once past this concern there were no problems. Thanks.

added a fabric softner dispenser

put the dispenser on top of the agitator, and pushd down the snap ring. I watched one of the do-it-yourself videos first, so i knew I could do it myself. I was also not sure if my agiator dogs were bad so I watched that video also, but per the video, there is nothing wrong. I went to a used appliance store, and they were going to charge me $140.00 to repair the agitator dogs. So I did some research myself, and did NOT have them come out. I can do that myself also. The videos are great. thx

Washer stopped after filling and would not restart.

I watched the video on your site of the fellow demonstrating the repair and was able to do it myself. The video was right on the money and the repair was exactly as the video showed. I spent maybe an hour and a half. It would have been much less but I'm not that mechanically inclined. I figure to have saved at least a couple of hundred dollars. Thanks. Will definately use you again.

Washer cycles would not advance

Prior to this repair I have never performed repair work on a washing machine. The video that was provided online was accurate and easy to follow which took all the mystery and headaches out of performing the repair. If the videos supplied by Parts Select with appliance parts make future repairs this easy I will never call a service man again.
