Super easy repair for my 20 year old washer. I have a really small laundry room and was worried about how much of an ordeal this would be. I had just enough room to remove the housing and get to the motor assembly without putting the machine on its side. The repair was just as shown in the video; 2 clips for the pump, 2 screws and 2 more clips to separate the motor from the transmission. I installed the new coupling and was doing a load of clothes in less than 30 minutes. Great service, fast delivery and low price. I will be coming back to PartSelect for my next repair.

After watching the video the repair looked easy. I took apart the unit per the video instruction, ordered the part and had the washing machine back up and running in 48 hours. Easy and the wife is happy!

I unhooked the two motor brackets, dropped the motor down out of the way, separated the coupling into three parts and slid them in place one at a time. I had to tap them a little with the hammer to get them on the shaft. I put the motor back in place and was done. It worked great and took about 20 minutes.

There was a loud bang, the smell of burnt rubber, and the washer tub stopped rotating, although all other functions seemed to still work.

Flipped the machine on its front, noticed a pile of black rubber dust, identified where the dust was from. Took some time moving pieces around to get access to the coupling. Finally got it off and saw that 4 of the 6 plastic pins that hold the rubber piece had snapped off. Ordered the part and waited a couple of days (the site said 5-8 days or something but it only took 2). Wife got tired of broken washer spread all over the place but I didn't want to move it until I got the part. It was more challenging to get the part in than it was to take it apart because there's not much room to get your hand where it needs to be. I ended up flipping the machine a few times until I got it where gravity was pulling the motor down, giving me enough access to put the part in. My biggest fear was that the hoses weren't tight enough and that I'd have to take it out again, but it was fine and everything's worked great since.

My wife actually figured out the problem, ordered the part, which came quickly. I watched the video and fixed the problem. I'm sure this saved us a lot of money. Instead of a technician coming out and replacing the part for about $200, it cost us $25 and an hours work. Thanks. You'll be hearing from me for future repairs!

Repair went really well thanks to the video PartSelect had posted with the drive motor coupling. It showed me how to take machine apart to replace the coupling. Loved the step-by-step instructions. Made it so easy for my son and me to do together and I am a female.

Watched the video on your site for that part

When the machine was filling with water about 30% of it would miss the tub and run down the back of the machine and on to the floor.

After removing the front, sides and top of the machine (all one piece) the springs were relativley easy to access. I discover one of the brakets that held one of the springs had rusted and would no longer support the spring. I then replaced the bracket and springs. I Re-assyembled the machine and it work as good as new.

My 17 year old grandson patiently took the cabinet apart and removed the motor. After providing model#, serial#, and motor #, we received a new motor in only two days. He had it back together in about an hour and a half -- and it worked perfectly. What a pleasant experience!

I was expecting to spend $100 or more if not having to go buy a new washer. I found your site and I was like "wow" then I found the Video of the intsual. It could not be any more simple. Entire job took 5 min. And under $4 for parts. All I can say is outstanding and thank you

Have replaced the rubber "dogs" in the agitator before. Washer had an extended service contract that expired in 1986. It just won't die.

The Agitator Directional Cogs were worn.
