this repair was for a friend's washing machine; I only knew that the lid switch was the problem because I spent too much $ having my washing machine fixed one month earlier. Same make, similar model. Unplug, remove the 2 end caps on the control panel..they unsnap easily. remove the 2 long philips screws at each end of the control panel near the bottom corners. these hold the control panel down. the control panel will now tilt up out of the way. the lid switch connector is a 3 pin connector near the center rear of the machine housing. disconnect. using a flat screwdriver, unsnap the 2 gold-colored steel springs near each rear corner of the housing. these hold the rear of the unit to the 1-piece front housing. keep in mind where the small flat part of each spring is inserted. after removal of springs, the entire front housing will lift off. the lid switch is attached with 2 screws to the underside of this housing. striped wire is ground, and is attached to housing. removal is self explanatory, and installation is the same. re-assembly is the same in reverse. the front housing sits on 4 small tabs at the bottom of unit. snap springs into place once housing is aligned, re-connect 3 pin connector, tilt control panel down and screw in place, and replace end caps. good luck.

This was a snap! I looked online for what the cause might be then looked for directions on how to replace it. Found exactly what I wanted and followed directions. Piece of cake. Instead of telling you how to do it..search on line for replacing lid switch assembly. Saved big bucks doing it myself!

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.

The washer would turn 45° by finish spin

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

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.

1) Slide retaining ring up 2) Remove old dispenser and toss out 3) Slip new dispenser on and lower retaining ring. Couldn't be simpler. I was surprised that I could actually get an exact replacement. Ordered it and two days later it was at my door. Great service!

added a fabric softner dispenser

put the dispenser on top of the agitator, and pushd down the snap ring. I watched one of the do-it-yourself videos first, so i knew I could do it myself. I was also not sure if my agiator dogs were bad so I watched that video also, but per the video, there is nothing wrong. I went to a used appliance store, and they were going to charge me $140.00 to repair the agitator dogs. So I did some research myself, and did NOT have them come out. I can do that myself also. The videos are great. thx

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.

followed repair instruction,( bought on line and down loaded ) some instructions were unclear but when you have the machine apart its obvious. your parts breakdown helped more than the instructions once the cabinet was opened.

Hanger on motor broke and destroyed the coupling

Turned machine on it’s back after removing the hose that goes to the drain, removed the bottom dust guard, I removed the hoses (take a picture before removing things so you know how to orient them when putting it back together) and drained the water first but this is not necessary (there are YouTube videos where they suggest removing the outer case, unclipping the pump and then removing the motor. This would be optimal as you don't need to deal with the water running out of the washer when you remove the hoses). Removed the 4 electrical connectors (multi-plug, 1 x two prong plug and 2 capacitor connector plugs) One of the motor hangers were broken on my machine, I removed the other one and then slipped the motor out. Removed the broken hanger and securing screws and the old rubber grommets, slipped the coupling out (had to leverage out with a large flat screwdriver). Installed new coupling and rubber on the gearbox side, 4 grommets on the motor and the other coupling on the motor. Inserted the hangers on the gearbox side and then mounted the motor. (it is easier if you turn the washer on its back so the drum moves down and gives you more room to drop the motor in from the top), clipped the motor hangers on and fastened the two metal screws, mounted the pump and hoses and reinstalled the dust guard. Turned it right side up and tested before dragging it back into the laundry. Washing again like it did when first bought it in 1998. I would recommend that when a coupling brakes, replace it as well as the hangers and grommets to make sure it has no room for play. Mine broke way too quick as I did the last coupling about a year ago, problem I think was that I had the wrong grommets causing excessive vibration and wear.

Removed the top part of the electronic panel. Removed the top lid. Removed the old tub springs and replaced them with new ones. Works great and for only $20.00. It beats buying a new washer. Thanks!
