Remove the cover of the washer, pull out motor, pry out motor coupler, replace. May have to hammer with a rubber mallet to get it on. Replace motor and washer cover. We also replace the water pump. It wasn't broken, but since we had the washer torn apart, decided to replace it as well. There are lots of YouTube videos to help you out.

Top of agitator was free to rotate in either direction and did not work properly.

The top of the agitator pops out and leaves the fastener(a 17mm bolt) open at the bottom of a 6 inch or so opening in the top piece. That bolt comes out with a socket extension and the top comes off. Replacing the dogs is just a case of sliding a retainer ring down, removing the broken dog pieces and replacing with new dogs. Reverse the disassembly process to reassemble the unit. Now, it works great.

no spin out of water in drum

followed the video on the web site and repair was amazingly easy. I have two of these machines, and this same part went bad about 1 1/2 year ago, so this time i was ready for everything. Took everything apart, got rid of old broken part, replaced with new, and Bam, washer back up and running, less than 30 minutes, I am limited on space in my basement, so i didn't turn machine on its back, i did it in the upright position, just utilized some wood blocks to hold the motor during part change, and a hand spring clamp to hold pump and hoses out of my way after removing the clips that hold it on. It's not rocket science, if i can do it so can you. Good luck

Won’t go on unless the lid slams shut.

First, unplug the unit. Remove the two screws on each side of the control panel on the back. They are located at the top corners of the unit. The base is held on by clips you press in on from the bottom. You will have to reach in over the tub and press in on clips, one each on the far side. At the left, you will be able to feel the lid switch, the clip is just to the left of the switch. It is about ½ inch wide, press firmly with your thumb. You may want to wear glove for this unless you like battle scars. Once done the control panel should hinge up. The switch is on the left side. To remove the switch, I first detached the wire harness to the control panel and unscrewed the grounding wire. Open the lid and the switch pulls right out. The new switch drops right in. Attach the wire harness and grounding wire. Place the control panel back side first at an angle making sure the back metal panel is lined up, once in place it should snap back in place when pressed down firmly. You might have to reach in over the tub again and pull the clip down (keep Band-Aids on hand). Plug the unit back in and you are good to go. Raise and close the lid, you should here the switch click on and off.

Removed softener dispenser from agitator. Removed 1/2" bolt from inside agitator and removed top half of agitator. Removed cog assembly.

Washer would fill with water but would not run

Broken lid switch. The BIG problem was trying to figure out how to remove the control panel. There was no screws on the back top corners nor two screws at the bottom corners. The front end caps was not removal either. Finally I found on the internet that if you slide a putty knife under front corner of the control panel you can push back the spring clip on each that will allow the panel to be removed and lifted up. From there the lid switch is located on the left side and is easy to replace from this point forward. You can read other instructions on details on replacing the lid switch.

drip from the front of the washer

First I tipped the washer forward and placed a plastic milk crate under the rear of the washer to support it . Then tipping the washer back. I placed two car jack stands near the front to support and level the machine. Now I had enough room to look under it to see where it was leaking. Right away I could see a drip coming from the pump in the front of the washer. I removed the two water hoses. Then with a screwdriver popped a clip on the top of the pump and one on the bottom. The pump slid easily off . Slide the new pump on and reverse the process

Followed written instructions after viewing repair video. Would have been helpful to know how far onto shaft each drive piece needed to be placed. I should have noted old piece placement, though if this was noted in instructions it would have been reassuring to know what is the proper placement. I also placed machine on its back to align the motor and transmission after new parts were installed on each.

The repair was easy and the video tutorial was great. That was the easy part. I also had to replace the drain pan and getting it in and out of the pan is no easy task. Plus when you have not moved the washer in 10 years there is some cleaning to do. I would not hesitate to do it myself again. It cost me $20 and some sweat equity.

The tub suddenly stopped moving after the final rinse, before the final spin.

I watched the video to get a good idea of the procedure. I followed the instructions to remove the cabinet but kept the washer upright on its base. I left the water feed hoses attached to the wall spigots, but turned them off. The pump was rusted onto the motor shaft so I left it there. I unhooked the pump hoses from the pump so I could remove the pump and motor as a unit. The plastic coupling ends pulled off the motor and gearbox shafts easily. The new coupling ends have metal inserts which are a tight fit on the gearbox and motor shafts. To maintain the original alignment it's important to drive them fully into place. I greased the shafts then tapped the coupling ends on with a hammer and drift. The drift was a metal tube, inside diameter slightly larger than the shafts, but small enough to bear on the metal inserts, not on the plastic. My diagnosis was wrong - the original coupling was in good condition, but the clutch had failed.

Washer stopped running. Would fill water and stop.

Replaced the Outer tub. Of course, unplug first. Then open the lid, pop out the fabric softener dispenser, then take a socket and remove the bolt. to take out the agitator. Then once the agitator is out, take the lock nut off of the drive block with a punch and hammer. The spanner wrench tool would be perfect, but a punch and hammer gets the job done and in the real world where you can't buy special tools for every job, it's a good compromise. Once you get the lock nut off, take the Inner basket out and take the drive block off and inspect. The drive block is often a cause for a no spin situation as I found out... Look at a picture of a new drive block and if yours doesn't look like a new one, then it's worn and you need a need a new one. Once the drive block is removed wiggle the tub while pulling up and it should slide off. Then, make sure you put a new seal in the new outer tub and reverse the procedure. Don't even bother trying to re-use the old seal, it's not worth it and will probably leak after trying to pry it out of the old tub. I'd also recommend buying a new tube for the bleach dispenser because it's really hard to re-use the old one, but that's why I needed the pliers...It worked, but was quite difficult to remove from the old tub and install in the new one. That's a basic overview of how to do the repair. It wasn't all that hard, and it fixed the washer....after I replaced that worn drive block too :) It's like new again.
