Water leaking only with washer running.

  • Customer: Jerry from Mobile, AL
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers

Tilted the machine back. Done carefully the hoses can all stay connected. Removing the pump from the motor first makes it easier to access the clamps on the hoses. Be sure to have a pan handy to catch the excess water out of the drain hose when you disconnect it. Connect the hoses to the new pump. rotate the shaft on the motor to line it up with the hole in the back of the pump. Clip the pump back in place, set the washer back in place and it's all over. It took me more time to file this repair story than it did to perform the repair.

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.

Easy as 123... unscrewed the top agitator, removed the parts and replaced. This part cost me about $3.00 and the repair call the last time was $250.00. I guess I would call it a profitable day!

washer would pump water out but not spin at all

  • Difficulty: Easy

I actually thought the job of replacing the clutch was more difficult than it actually was. I simply watched the video on how to do it and it was really a task that pretty much anyone could do. The only bit of trouble I had was putting the C-shaped wire clip back on the shaft to hold the clutch in place......other than that everything else was pretty easy.....I would definately use Partselect again...

lid switch was bad

  • Customer: jonny from pikeville, TN
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers, Socket set
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
the lid switch probably would have taken about an hour, but when I moved the washer, one of the water lines sprung a leak, then couldn't get it un-screwed from the falset, so had to cut a pvc line, put the falset in a vise and the falset broke, so had made 2 trips to town, and had to replace both water lines, one falset, and lots of cleanup, so it was an all day job, but the switch I started out to fix, was easy, and a good video for instuction was included.

Washer leaking

  • Difficulty: Difficult

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.

The top two-thirds of the agitator didn't agitate.

  • Customer: Zella from Rio Rancho, NM
  • Difficulty: Really Easy

After a little research on line, I knew to remove the fabric softener cup, pull out the clear plastic divider, unscrew the agitator bolt, pop off the construction clips, slide a plate down a bit, remove the old cogs, put in the new, return all the pieces to their places, screw the bolt back in place and now it works perfectly. I also bought a cabinet clip, spacer & screw that I will use at a later date. This repair went quickly and easily.

Upper Agitator Not Agitating

From the central column, pull off the fabric softener dispenser (of course, with the machine off). Reach in and pull out the seal (looks like a diaphram). Using a socket, undo the bolt and pull out the plastic ratchet assembly. I found the 4 dogs in bad condition, ordered them, and received them in a couple days. Replace the old dogs and reassemble. Only the bolt requires a tool. Much simpler and cheaper than I had anticipated.
