Removed the the drain hose from the pump. Removed nut from the agitator. Then laid the washer on its back after removing the inlet hoses. took out the pump, remove wire harness from motor then removed the motor. removed the three bolts holding in the the transmission. The one mistake I made was that I removed the springs for the brake shoes and this cause me to have a lot of trouble trying to put them back on. Once the clutch arrived, I removed the old clutch from the transmission shaft, and installed the new clutch using all the parts that came with it. Then put everything together in the reverse order that they were removed in.

PartSelect has a training video for this repair. Remove the softener dispenser by popping it up with a flat screwdriver. Reach down inside the agitator and remove the bottom cap. Use a 7/16 socket on a six inch extension to remove the agitator bolt. At this point I recomment pulling the entire agitator assembly out for ease of disassembly and reassembly. Clean as necessary. Use a pair of needle nose pliers to remove the cog assembly. Place the cog assembly on a flat surface and use a flat screwdriver to remove the retainer. Note the position of the cogs and replace with the new. There are two plastic clips on the lower agitator that you can snap off to make reassemble easier. Replace the agitator in the tub. If you don't have a magnetic socket, I find it's helpful to place a small piece of paper towel across the socket to hold the agitator bolt in place as you slide it back down inside the agitator for reassembly. Tighten the bolt. Replace the bottom cap and softener dispenser.pa

Tub was spinning only part time. Had to have help getting started

Installed new clutch assembly and while I was at it replaced the Motor Coupling. Actually, I had a good time doing the repair. I am almost 80 years old, so had to have help laying the washer on backside. Got a small stool from which to work (back problems). The only thing I found the least bit difficult was reinstalling the retaining clip for the clutch assembly. The rest was a piece of cake. Were I to do the same repair now, it would take less than 30 minutes. Washer works like new now. Very proud of what I was able to accomplish. Of course, need to watch the repair video so you will know where to start.

Tub will not spin

After finding out the tub would not spin, I removed the washer to find broken pieces on the floor. I did a google search on my model number and found that the problem was the direct drive motor coupling (it matched the pieces on the floor). So, I watched the "how to" video and I followed the steps verbatim. I found the coupler missing and the plastic pieces on the drive broken. My order came in quickly (within 48 hours) and my washer was running in 20 minutes after receiving the package. It has been great ever since.

I unplugged washer, then, removed the control panel with two screws on back, slid unit back and up. Unscrewed ground screw and unplugged harness, lifted lid and removed switch. In order to re-install lid switch, lid has to be in the up position, otherwise it will not fit properly. Reattach harness and ground screw, then control panel. Plug and go. My wife says that the washer works better than ever. Very easy! Saves money!

Using the part select website, I discovered that 64% of the time, replacing the water pump will fix the drain problem so I ordered that part. I laid the washer on it's back. And was able to unclip the water hoses, detach the pump and install the new one. The parts select website has great instructional videos to help but in this case, the video recommended removing the outer skin from the washer which I found unnecessary.

Leakt water pump

Forget the instruction book, it's too time consuming and it's a knuckle buster. Disconnect all hoses and lay machine on it's back. (Have plenty of rags to soak up the half gallon of water still in the pump). Use pliers to slide back hose clamps on pump and slide off hoses. Use screw drive to snap off clamps holding pump in place. Remove pump. Simply reverse process to install new pump. It nearly was one of my wife's 5 minute jobs she always has on her "Honey Doo" list.
