Followed the video and instructions included with part. At first we did not think the repair was successful, but after several small loads were run, squealing stopped. The washer is 16 years old and so far is running like new. We certainly appreciated the great customer service. The part was delivered in less than 24 hours.

As directed on the informational vídeo shown on the website with just a few diferences....bit otherwise got the honey do list item fixed....

Washer wasn't agitating or spinning. The timer was working, the motor coupler was intact so I figured I would start with the simplist thing and go from there. If all else failed, I was reacdy to buy a new washer.

Unplugged the washer and unscrewed hoses. Unscrewed the 2 screws on the back of the control panel and folding it up. Took off the 2 metal ties to get the cabinet off. Once off, I unscrewed the ground from the old Lid Switch and popped out. Put the new Lid Switch in, screwed the ground back in, replaced cabinet, clamps, put the control panel back in place and screwed the 2 screws on back of the control panel back in. Screwed the hoses back on, plugged the washer back in, everything works great again.

Washer left a puddle of water after a load of laundry.

After some research, it seemed like the water pump was the culprit since I knew all of the hoses were good. My washer was a little different from the one in the repair video. My washer didn't have the gauges on a hinge, so it sort of had to hang there. Also, there were no spring clips on the interface/dashboard, there were screws at the back of the washer that I had to unscrew which allowed me to lift up the dashboard so that I could remove the clips from the back to the main panel that surrounds the front/sides. Because my washer was old, I had the most difficulty just pulling the old pump off and putting the side/front panel back on the front of the machine. The video was obviously from a guy replacing a part on a brand new washing machine. Just work the part gently back and forth and you should be able to remove if it doesn't come off right away. I've run 2 loads of laundry through the washing machine with no leaks, so this fix was cheap and awesome!

There are youtube vids on how to get the thing open. I just wish I'd known the following: 1.remove agitator BEFORE opening the unit up and leaning it back (much easier to work inside the tube with it upright). 2. be aware that a free-floating part known as the skate plate can dislodge while the unit is on it's side/back. It is a generally triangular piece of flat-ish metal between the base of the tub and the top of the drive-train chassis. If it doesn't line up properly after you replace the parts you're going to get a noisy, clanking spin cycle the next time you run the thing (as I discovered).

Used machine, unknown age, with zero upper agitator motion. The upper agitator could be turned easily in either direction.

Age and condition of the washer were unknown. I had no agitator grease available. I went for just the replacement of the Agitator Directional Cogs. I reviewed the video for replacing the whole kit. Removed fabric softener dispenser and the seal below. The seal needed to be cleaned. Removed the 7/16" bolt with a socket and extra long extension. Removed the agitator. Pulled off upper agitator. The part that holds the cogs is in about the center of the upper agitator. It also needed to be cleaned. One original cog was broken the other were past needing to be replaced. Replaced the cogs and the retainer. There was some effort with getting the upper agitator down far enough to re-install the bolt. That was just a slight alignment issue. The other parts were put back in place.
