WATER LEAKED INTO TUB

NOTE THAT MY WASHER IS OVER 14 YRS OLD. WITH THE VIDEO I WAS ABLE TO MAKE THE REPAIR. HOWEVER, DUE TO THE AGE OF MY WASHER, THE REPAIR WAS NOT A DIRECT SWAP - THERE WAS ONE SIMPLE PRELIMINARY STEP IN ADDITION TO THE VIDEO INSTRUCTIONS. THIS PRELIMINARY STEP WAS DESCRIBED BY INSTRUCTIONS RECEIVED WITH THE PART. MY ADVISE: ALWAYS READ AND FOLLOW WRITTEN INSTUCTIONS NO MATTER HOW SIMPLE THEY APPEAR TO BE - IT WILL SAVE YOU A LOT OF TIME.

Washer leaking

After watching some on-line vids, I determined it was the center post, or tub, gasket at the bottom. A cheap part, and easy to snap-out the old and snap-in the new - But - I had to dissassemble the washer into individual washer component molecules. Luckily, I'd done this recently to replace the clutch drive, then the motor, then this. Not too bad, really. Washer body off (2 screws and two snap-links); agitator out (7/16" socket on extension); bang off tub nut (heavy hammer and punch); bang off drive block (hammer again); and pull tub up an out. Tub drain disconnected (pliers); pull off level sensing tube; three spring mounts (nutdriver); then just yank tub up. Poke out Centerpost gasket; snap in a new one; reassemble. Piece of cake.

Had issues with removing the inner tub

Had a lot of corrosion on the shaft area and had a hard time removing the inner tub but after some WD-40 and unprintable words and labor it popped off. Cleaned everything up, shaft, inner drum and outer drum. After that everything was a piece of cake. Thanks for the help!

No spin on spin cycle

  • Customer: Thomas from Port Jervis NY
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Wrench(Adjustable)

Easy, If your drive block has an open top, it's worn. Look at a picture of a new drive block and compare. If it doesn't match, then you need a new drive block. Note: Also check the drive clutch and clutch liners or pads...they may be worn. In my case it was the drive block this time. So to start, take off the fabric softenner dispenser in the center of the washer. Then pull out the seal. then remove the bolt. and pull off the agitator assembly. after that tap off the lock nut with a punch and hammer or if you have the special spanner wrench tool, use that. Once removed, pull out the inner tub and then pull the drive block off the shaft. Put the new drive block on and reverse the procedure from there. Tap the lock nut tight with the punch and hammer while re-installing. I'm so glad I did this repair. $15 is so much better than just giving in and buying a new washer!!!

Following another tip from this blog, I unscrewed the assembly and let it dangle. Then I used screw nuts to attach the wires. Big tip: Cut off the wires right next to the old assembly and use the smallest wire nuts you can find. It's a little tight, but can be done. The grounding wire is not a factor. Took me 10 minutes. Thank you partselect!

I went to you tube, watched a video on how to remove the top of the washer. The install of the part was easy. Just unpluge the connecters, remove two screws. iT TOOK ABOUT 30 MINUTES. Easy, the best part was how fast the replacement part came, this company is great.

I watched the repair video- the link was sent to me by Parts Select when I ordered the new switch. I followed the instructions step-by-step and the entire process took about 30 min. even with my three-year-old "helping" and talking to me the entire time! Very easy!

It was a piece of cake other than the front of washer coming off and getting put back on. Ordering was a breeze and getting the order placed and getting it delivered to the house was so fast. Couldn't be happier with the service. I had doubts on the part being the right one, it didn't say Kenmore on the package.The washer works like brand new..I could have done this repair myself if the washer didn't have to be drug out of laundry space. Thanks so much...

Your video was very helpful, we watched twice before disassembling washer, it was difficult, because the space was small, we tried not to take water tubes out. Anyway finally we changed the switch, washer works fine now. Many thanks.

The washer would fill but not run.

I determined the problem from the Partselect website and ordered the switch. I received the switch and watched the repair video on the website. It seemed like a lot of disassembly at first for this but it was necessary and not at all difficult after watching the video. I completed the repair in about 30 minutes. I would like to add that by using the Partselect website, I have diagnosed and repaired a refrigerator (condenser fan & icemaker), and dishwasher (thermal fuse), all in the past 90 days. I am very satisfied with your service and have recommended you to many people so far. Thank You.
