I followed the instructions from a YouTube video, just do a Google search for the make, model, and what the problem is and several videos will come up to pick from. Everything went just as described in the video, took about 10-min to take the motor out, a couple of minutes to replace the broken motor coupling, and another 10-min to put it back together - slick.

The washer was making noise and was leaving the cloth dripping wet at end.

Before I even watch any partselect videos to do the repair, which I should of from the very beginning, ah, ja, ja, I had already disassembled the back panel "my way" to the washer and trouble shooting the washer with my wife's help. While she tilted the washer backwards, I looked under and we found that the noise was coming from in between top of the motor where the direct drive motor coupling is located and the clutch assembly came together which I learned along with names and functions after watching the partselect installation video. Nice! Once I received the part it took me like 45 minutes to put all back together. Took loose two screws to clips holding the motor, pulled motor of mounting bracket finding the broken piece, replaced it, recouped reinstalling motor onto the motor bracket, clip, clip the two little screws and walla, got the wife her washer back, at bed time rewards, peace of mind the rest was history... Thanks PartSelect for awesome videos and great customer service!

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.

I watched the video and that was a great help. I just entered my model number and selected the symptom. 61% of the time the drive coupling is the problem and it was. Ordered the part and got it the next day.

Intermittently the spin cycle would not empty the tub fully

First off, let me say two things, this was my very first washer repair and the installation video was excellent.

Few things though ..... The first thing I noticed was the old parts I removed did not look that bad to me. I was starting to wonder if I was wasting my time. However, its apart now I'll continue on. I had a hard time properly seating the new couplings on either end correctly. They were VERY snug. What I ended up doing was getting a 20mm deep socket that fit perfectly onto the coupling and with a hammer gently, (and I underline gently) tapped the new parts into place. That fixed that problem. I also had some minor difficulty putting the cabinet back together, but nothing earth shattering. The cabinet fits on top of the frame, not under. And lastly, the small clips that hold the console on were not very reusable afterwards so I'll need to order a new set of them sometime.

All-in-all it was a fun repair that didn't take me too long and I saved quite a bit. I definitely would do it again if necessary. I've done about 5 loads of laundry since and everything seems to be working great so far.

After entering the Parts Select website and searching for the model number information, I found a video which described the problem. The video explained the step by step procedure to access the possible problem. The problem was exactly as the video described, I ordered the repair part, made the repair, and placed the washer back in service. Oh, by the way, the part was delivered to my house the next day.

First I tried take the back off. Wrong move, wasted 30 mins on that. Then drained water into bucket, moved washer on hand truck to garage for more room to work. Had pump & drive coupling out in 20 mins. Found Partslect & ordered parts in 15 mins. Two days later had everything back working in 20 mins. Very Good Srevice.

I adopted the washer in a rental unit. The tenant told me it made a series of loud noises and just stopped. My "go to" source is always Partselect, after entering the symptom(s) I noted the potential problems...it was then time to tear into the machine. First was the pump which was not broken or seized up, I then manually turned the shaft on the motor...it was spinning freely. After unclamping and removing the motor the problem was obvious...the coupler assembly had seen better days (it was broken in two), this was a very inexpensive and simple repair ($18 including shipping). I highly recommend viewing the you tube video on the parts page...it was very helpful. This is my 2nd appliance repair using Partselect, the 1st was just as easy although a bit more time consuming as I had to take an entire dryer apart to replace a broken wheel assembly deep inside the machine. I will be using Partselect everytime I feel I can handle the project. It saved me a bundle from having to call a repair person.

Well i'm an auto technician by trade so I just jumped right in without reading or watching anything, but I saw the video and in the days waiting for the part to show up I watched it. I would recommend everyone to watch the video because it is simpler than I made it.Easy repair any mechanical skills at all and you shouldnt ave any trouble.

I have never fixed a washer, but this website made it very easy. I watched the video so there were no surprises. I unpluged the machine and disconnected the water lines and removed the two back screws. The control panel and shell came of very easy, i then tipped the washer on to its backand removed the clamps holding the motor. The motor came out very easy and the coupler was a cinch to put in. After that I reversed the process and then the wife was happy she got her washer back, Iwas happy too because I didnt have to buy a new one.

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.
