Last time the washer had this problem, it was the lid switch. Jumped the connector to make sure that was the problem. Ordered new switch. Followed the directions on-line, but did not understand which screw to take out of the back panel of the washing machine. Turns out, did not need that step. Must have a different model than the one used in the demo. Everything else worked exactly like the repair demo.

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.

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 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.

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...

Leaking Water Pump

When water began leaking from the bottom of our washer, I immediately thought it might be a leaking tub. But I did a little research on the internet and found out how easy it is to get into the machine so I could investigate the problem. When I found the source of the leak, it still seamed a little difficult to repair until I found this website. Not only did I find the part I needed at a fair price, but the video explaining the repair procedure was easy to follow. The repair itself turned out to be quite simple and easy. And the best part is that I saved time and a huge repair bill. I couldn't find a repairman quickly and I suspected they wouldn't even have the part in stock. Thanks, Parts Select!

Friday night removed back, Electronic controls, and remaining cabinet. Inspected direct drive pump and it was damp. Removed part. Total Time 20 minutes to this point. Spent next 45 minutes on-line trying to order the correct part and get it as soon as possible. Paid for overnight delivery, but it showed up Monday. Installed part then re-assembled Washer in reverse order. Total Time 30 minutes. Tested the Washer. Noticed water was not filling. Turned valves back on. All worked well. Washer is used several times a day. It's now 2 weeks later and still running well. I'm very mechanically inclined and I have an electronics background so it seemed very easy to me. I think anyone could do this, but it may take more time to determine how to disassemble and reasseble by researching it on the internet.
