Water was leaking at the pump

Actually this is kinda funny. I ordered the part and it arrived when I was out of town on business. My 20 year old daughter tipped the washer up on its end, and replaced the pump herself in less than 30 minutes. Her only complaint was that no one told her to block the washer up as it almost fell on her.

The reason it took as long as it did was because the job is not in line as the work I normally do.
It would be a fairly easy job for an experienced repairman. (Taking the back off the washer was time consuming for me) The rest of the job was easy as the part was a perfect fit.
I remember having a problem blending hot/cold water for some time. Most recently, while washing a load the water did not want to shut off. I can't remember how I diagnosed the water not shuting off as a problem along with the water temp control, but it is now repaired.
With the new valve installed, water temp select is now OK and the water now shuts off as normal.

The biggest problem for me was finding the screws to remove the control panel. First there are two screws on the top back side of the control panel, then there are plastic covers that have to be removed from both sides of control panel, then you can remove the screws at the base of the control panel. Set the control panel back, then remove the golden brackets that hold the cabinet to back of the washer. The whole cabinet will come forward with a little coaxing. (Remember to put the screws with the part you have removed to make sure you put them back in the same place.) Next remove screws that hold on the lid switch, remove wiring from clips, then replace with new switch, situate wiring in clips, position switch into place, screw into place. The cabinet is really hard to get back into place, be patient it may take a few tries. Once you get the cabinet in place, replace the golden brackets, then place the control panel where the screw holes line up and screw down, replace plastic sides, then replace the screws in the back side and your done.

water leaking from pump

Removed the clips. Pulled out the old pump. After trying to get the new pump on the shaft of the motor, I realized that some corrosion had built up on the motor shaft. I got a small tack hammer and very lightly tapped the shaft to remove the corrosion. The pump then slid on the shaft with no problem. Replaced clips. Job complete.
The corrosion on the shaft cracked the plastic piece where the shaft connects and this is what caused the problem in the first place.

Just turned the washer on its side, popped out the two retainer clips with pliers and screwdriver, pulled the pump out by hand, put the new one in and replaced one rusty clip with the new one from parts select, and used the other old one. I ordered the parts on Monday, and they came tuesday, even with the standard shipping. Also the website parts diagram and whole website design is good.

Lid switch broke away from top.

Replaceing the actual switch was easy as unscrewing two screws with the lid up. The wiring was a different story. I guess you can cut and spice and be done with it but to get to the real connection, a lot has to come apart or have very long arms to reach from the bottom. I first removed the cover to the dials by removing the side trim and a screw at each end near the base. That exposed the wire connection. The wire actually runs under the top therefore I had to remove the back panel partially to gain access to the wiring and holders for the wire. Just by remembering the steps while backing out, everything worked out.

Will Not Spin

This is a relatively new washer and failed early. My previous whirlpool washer lasted 20 years without any repairs. 1. First inquired about the spin problem in partselect. Machine will not sping unless manualy forced then it will take off but weak. 2. Partselect suggested a clutch problem. Ordered the part that came fast. When I tried removing the shaft hub with a hammer and chisel it will not get loose so I opted ordering the special wrench to loosen the tub hub. 3. I put the machine on its back and loosened the pump retaining clips. Do not remove the hoses from the pump. Move the pump away from the motor shaft. Remove the motor electrical connector and set aside. 4. Remove the three bolts holding the gearbox-motor assemply and pull it out of the tub. 5. Put the assembly on a towelwith shaft up and remove the separator washer from the old clutch that is sitting on the gearbox. Then remove the c-retaining clip from the shaft. 6. Pry out the wire retaining clip from the clutch and pull the old clutch out of the shaft. 7. The clutch kit I ordered came with a plastic brake to clutch cam so I replaced it too, just remove the retainig clip from the brake that is at the bottom of the tub and replaced the part. 8. Installed the new clutch and the retaining clips in reverse order. Replace all parts that came with the kit. The new clutch spring was already in place. 9. Put the assembly back into the tub and re-install all the other items in the same order. It spins good now! 10. While replacing parts, methodically clean all the lint from the motor and from under the machine. The gearbox showed signs of leaking oil so its a question of cost. I left it there until it fails then I'll buy a new machine.

The top lid switch failed so washer wouldn't run.

Removed the valance by unscrewing nuts on top back and then removing side wings. The valance can be flipped up and hung over the back of the backsheet making sure not to damage clear hose. Then remove the old switch, wire and cut off the ground wire. Moount the new switch and make sure the wire is well back from the drum by tying to the old clip that held the old wire. Connect the ground to the body now under the valance. I found a hole there and screwed the ground terminal to it with a self taping screw.This procedure allows you to replace the switch without having to take the complete washer front body off.

improper or no hot water flow

After taking the entire washer apart one time, we learned that we could take the top and front of the machine off only to repair it. I found Part-select online and with the model number locating the part was easy. It arrived within 3 days and with instructions I could easily replace the old part with a few tools. I spent dollars instead of hundreds for a new machine.
