Very easy - less than 30 min. Followed installation video available on PartSelect website, except did not have to disconnect all hoses or lay on back. Left washer in place all connected and raised up on blocks about 6" off floor. Removed cabinet as per video instructions. Changed pump as per video instructions. Video from website was crucial to easy repair. Would not have known how to release cabinet latches and remove cabinet without video. Cabinet was off in 3 min. and entire job was less than 30 min.

Following the video posted with the part made this repair a piece of cake, well documented, filmed, great explanations of tools needed and how to do it all. This is a fantastic site for do it yourself people with a little bit of mechanical skills. BTW I've been a hvy. eqt. mech. for over 40 years so this is something different to tangle with and a lot cleaner. Thanks so much for your time and consideration in produceing this instructional video, and keep up the excellent work.

Had a laptop with the repair video on next to washer and paused after each set of instructions to complete each task. Went perfectly! Only tricky part was fitting the cover back but eventually got it with a bit of jiggling. Very impressed with the instructional video as everything was where they showed it and came apart exactly as explained and more importantly went back together correctly.

Disassembled upper agitator to ascertain cause of problem. Agitator directional cogs were worn out. Washer on agitator bolt was also worn off. Replaced those parts along with installing a new thrust spacer and everything works beautifully. Only required a standard #2 flat screwdriver to pop the cover off the agitator and a 7/16 socket on an extension to remove the agitator bolt. Quite a simple project.

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.

After shutting of water and removing supply hoses I started out removing the two small sheet metal screws on rear top and side top to remove dash board. Removed two large spring clips that hold the top and back together that are hidden by dash. pulled back panel back to access valve from left (looking at back of washer) Removed sheet metal screw securing valve plate to back panel. Moved hose spring clamp below hose barb on valve. Disconnected hot and cold switch plugs from valve and installed new valve using reverse steps above. Vacuumed and wiped down dust and lint from washer and put back in place. I used a short stool to ease working at a low position.

Since I live in a condo (upstairs unit) flipping the machine was not an easy option. So I was faced with having to get the remaining 2-3 gallons of water out of the drum. I rigged something up and collected 80% of the water, but be prepared for a mess. I was and it wasn't a big deal, just took more time. Once part was removed, I got online to find the part- which ranged in price from $67 at a local appliance part distributor to $49 from SearsDirect including postage. Parts select came in at $37 with freight and the part swapped out perfectly- just 2 clips that hold the pump on and 2 hose clamps (I used slip-joint pliers which works well). I checked YouTube for a video first and lo and behold, there was a video about a whirlpool water pump replacement, which helped some. Job went well and I didn't have to replace a $1200 all-in-one.
