Found input to gearcase deformed, so new coupler slipped under load. Replaced gearbox. All function restored, but machine banged harshly during spin. Discovered that "skid plate" had shifted during gearbox replacement. Remounted skid plate carefully with pry bar, correcting vibration.

I pulled up PartSelect, compared their advice with my problem, ordered a direct drive motor coupling for my particular model, received the delivery, and called a friend who's good at home repairs and who happens to be dating my sister. He was delighted to comply with our request (her clothes get laundered here) and he had no problem with either the repair itself or the part we ordered. Replaced the hoses, too. He said the new part had been improved over the old one, but everything fit together just like it should. Then I washed her work jeans. Success! I know this isn't what you're asking, but I was so pleased to have the correct part ready to go so he didn't have to mess around. It wouldn't have taken the afternoon, but I had to clean everything that had accumulated debris in 10 years of use as he went.

Found this web site after reading forums on slow spins and I determined it was a clutch problem. Ordered the clutch from "Part Select", watched the 19 minute video (excellent) on changing out a clutch from this website. After 1.5 day delivery, I installed per video. Very pleased, thank you; Dave

water pump quit workding no water would drain

  • Customer: Tim from Whitesburg, TN

I was very happy the part arrived very fast and just what we needed, and service was super.. We took the old pump off slipped the new one into the slot and hooked the clips back on it and tighted it up and plug the washer back in and filled with water and it drained... We started doing laundry right away, and so far so good... Tired to leave a review but it won't let us into the site, but we would use the same company to order from again, thank you so much...

Water pump was leaking

  • Customer: Michael from Spencerport, NY
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers

The repair video was great. I decided not to remove the outer cover as there is room to get to the pump if the washer is tipped back. The pump was easy to fix with the exception of the root cause of the failure. There was water getting to the pump shaft and over time it rusted and expanded in the pump housing causing it to split and leak. Once the old pump was removed, a file was needed to reshape the drive shaft to allow the new pump to be installed. Not bad on a 16 year old washer!

The agitator top did not turn

The Whirlpool website provided an excellent repair video, showing a step by step procedure for making this repair. I did have to clean the old parts but other than that i just followed the video. I used a socket to loosen a single bolt holding the agitator,I pulled it apart, replaced the cogs, and then put it back together.

Spin cycle would not complete or spin fast enough

Replaced Cltch assembly. Hardest part was figuring out how to drop the motor. The clutch is located of the main shaft above the motor, under the drum. Three bolts hold the motor in from underneath, however there is a bolt at the top of the shaft in the agitator assembly. Note location of the snap ring on the shaft holding the clutch assembly, grooves in shaft. The only other issue that I had is the is a triangular metal peice that is not attached in anyway between the drum and framing. It had moved when I had the motor and had to be reset after I did my first test run of washer. Spins out great now!

The hot water male outlet was cracked and leaking.

We found a significant leak in the back of the washing machine. We found the hot water male outlet was cracked and leaking. As we attempted to remove the hose the outlet broke off. My husband isn't the handyman like a professional however he can work a work a wrench and is good with taking things apart and putting them back together. He unplugged the washing machine to remove the electrical hazard first. Then he began removing the top control piece and onto the back panel removal. In total there were 7 screws removed. The last screw held the hot/cold thermostat.The piece came out easily and unplugged easily. Important to make sure you know which plugs came from which connection mark them. There is a total of 6 wires. My husband removed the water hose clamp that connected the thermostat to the two water inlets. He removed the piece and went through the same steps in reverse. In total he had it apart and back together fully functional in about 30 minutes. The piece we got shipped saved our rear ends. Replacing the piece was easy peasy lemon squeezy. We didn't have to buy a new washing machine. The piece came overnight and my machine runs like a champ. Awesome deal on the replacement part and it was in stock and easy to install.

Washer would stop after filling with water

  • Difficulty: Very Difficult

First off, the replacement lid switch worked and repaired the washer. However, the replacement procedure was very difficult. I attempted to follow the directions off of the website, and then a video from YouTube. I was intstructed to remove two screws from the back of the control panel which in turn would flip up so I could get to the old lid switch and replace it. However, there were no screws on the back side of the control panel so I removed the back panel of the washer to get to the lid switch. That was a very time consuming and laborious procedure and because the back panel was installed under the molding of the control panel I had to bend the heck out of the back panel to remove it. The good news is that the replacement of the lid switch corrected the problem. The bad news was that it was the wrong procedure on getting to the part that needed replacement. I wish that I could have found the proper procedure form my particular model.

I followed the video clip that showed how to make the repair that was attached to the email sent from Patrselect notifying me that my part had been shipped. The video clip was excellent and no other instructions needed. Thanks

top portion of agitator free spinning

Removed center top cap/sofetner dispenser. Removed center shaft bolt. Pulled off the top agitator section from bottom portion. Inside the upper agitator is the inner housing for the cogs, pushed right out. Remove cog retainer plastic ring. Careful, the cogs freely fall out and it a little tricky when reassembling. Reassemble every (cogs go in only one way), place the upper agitator back down and over lower portion in machine. Now Put the bolt back in place. Here's the tricky part. You will need a magnetic tip driver or socket to hold the bolt until you have it started because it sits in recessed "well" area. I used a dab of regular Elmer's glue from bolt head to socket. Worked like a charm. Be careful not to over tighten bolt. Remember, upper agitator should free spin one direction and "catch" in the apposing direction.

Almost identical to the instruction video that was sent. Very straight forward. I did not take apart the washer to identify the problem. I was short on time so I took a chance and ordered the highest probability cause of the symptoms indicated by your website. It was dead on; the problem is fixed. Parts were received ahead of schedule. Excellent all around.

Washer was not spinning clothes on 1st spin

After researching possible failure modes and reviewing a video for teardown/access from the control panel and access top down I noticed a lot of 'break dust' on top of the transmission. Shorting out the lid switch and putting my little finger on the drum, it would not spin but the clutch was spinning fine. I ordered a new clutch... Interesting thing when I was taking the clutch out... the gear it was attached to slid right off! After figuring out it was too big to go 'back' into the transmission and reviewing the parts explosion diagram... it BELONGED INSIDE THE TRANSMISSION! So I took the transmission cover off, poured out out the black-ish oil with metal filings in it, put the gear inside, filled it back up with 10W30, put the lid on, added the new clutch while it was apart and finished reassembly. Wow! It spins much better than when it was new. I guess never assume what can happen on an assembly line. Thanks for the great site.
