the lid switch probably would have taken about an hour, but when I moved the washer, one of the water lines sprung a leak, then couldn't get it un-screwed from the falset, so had to cut a pvc line, put the falset in a vise and the falset broke, so had made 2 trips to town, and had to replace both water lines, one falset, and lots of cleanup, so it was an all day job, but the switch I started out to fix, was easy, and a good video for instuction was included.

The job itself was easy in general. It took me a little longer because the ground screw was rusted and I had go figure out how to get it off. I used wd-40 and some serious thought LOL. I want to give credit to Repair Clinic on Youtube and some forums for help determining the problem and being able fix it.

Unfortunately, I had started taking apart the washing machine before I got frustrated and found this video. I wasted sooo much time. When I found the PartSelect.com video, I followed the steps exactly and it was a breeze. I was done in 15 min, tops. Now I will always check PartSelect.com before making any appliance home repairs :) Being able to do this saved me a ton of money, as well. I love this site!

The hardest part was moving everything, once the cabinet was removed from the washer replacing the switch for the lid was easy. Good for another ten years...

I dipped most of the water out of the machine because it was heavy, and needed to be moved out from wall. Always unplug the machine, and cut the water valves off. I pulled the two plastic end caps off the control panel, unscrewed the two philip screws from the ends of the control panel, flipped the control console up, and backwards. unscrewed the ground wire screw in the back. popped two"S" clamps holding the metal cabinet to the back panel. tilted the metal cabinet forward, lifted it from around the tub, unscrewed the two screws holding the switch, and ground wire. replaced the switch. oh, you must unplug the connector before tilting the metal cabinet. reverse the procedure. make sure you plug the connector up before you pull the control panel back into place. I cleaned, and vacumned the dust and dust inside the machine. so it took a little longer than usual. about an hour. Very easy job, but kind of cramped quarters for me. machine runs like new.

Unplugged washer. Shut off hot and cold water. Pulled the washer away from the wall slightly to remove the hoses. Once disconnected I pulled the washer out further. Removed the two screws holding faceplate. Then popped the two tabs, allowing the tub cover to be removed. Disconnected the wire connector from the pins, and then removed the tub cover. I was then able to disconnect the water inlet valve. I replaced the water inlet valve, the internal hose and the two clamps. Then did the above in reverse order.

With no broke springs I thought that they might be weak so I ordered them but didn't install them as I found that the basket had a drag at one point of turning it, so I took it down to the clutch and found the nylon arm that released the brake had the small pins broken off. This would cause the brake to not release full enough that the eccentricity in it had a drag spot during the spin causing tremendous vibration. To disassemble I took the transmission off and the basket off and install new clutch assembly with the basket laying horizontal on a table. I did notice that the new clutch only had three pads on the band and the old one had six. I called you back with no satisfaction, but was given the phone # of the manufacturer and they confirmed that theirs had six pads but the part # checked out so I installed it. It now sits basically still during a cycle. I made and supervised the making of parts in a machine shop all my working carrier and I don't understand the weak link of the nylon pins milled / molded on a part that takes a lick from the actuator every cycle. It appears to me it was made to break, but it is about 20 years old. Thanks for your video help on the tube. Fred

Washer not draining or spinning?

  • Customer: Jerry from Donalsonville, GA

Looking on line and seeing the video on how to repair or replace the lid switch made it a synch. Most commonly this is the problem it explained with these symptoms not draining or spinning after a working agitating wash load. I had noticed that it was agitating with the lid up so I surmised this switch was the problem as the video said. After viewing the directions finding the hidden two screws behind the trim it was a synch to follow the simple directions. Thanks for the info and the replacement part that was a perfect match. Washer is doing fine.

I had no trouble replacing the pump very easy repair. The video did have one misleading point. It shows releasing the control panel with a putty knife. In my case there are phillips head screws to be removed. Once past this concern there were no problems. Thanks.
