I had to find a point of reference first since item came apart in wash cycle and internal pieces fell out - thank goodness for YOUTUBE. Another guy was thoughtful enough to do a video on how the assembly came apart / went back together - a huge help for sure. Actual repair was less than a half hour after obtaining new part and seeing video. The 12 year old washer works like brand new - saving me close to 1,000 dollar replacement charges.

Removed bolt from agitator assembly. Pulled up on the agitator vane and removed it.
tipped over macvhine . Drained water from tub via the drain hose assemble and removed clips from the hoses to the pump atached to the motor and drained residual water from the lines. Removed the electrical connector attached to the motor assembly and the three bolts holding the motor assembly and shaft to the tub and slid the shaft and assembry out.. Took digital photo of the assembly to insure proper part replacement and removed the clips and spring that are part of the assembly that holds on the clutch. Removed the old assembly and installed the new assembly . Installed the spring and retaining clip that came with the kit and installed the shaft . Installed the three bolts holding the/motor assembly and shaft in place and reconnected the hoses to the pump assembly and reconnected the electrical connector. Uprighted the washer and everything worked like new when I tested the spin cycle. I was quoted $225 to fix the bad clutch from the appliance tech that I paid $20 to diagnose the problem . Saved about $175 by doing it my self and it wasn't hard to do. My thanks to the previous persons that had done the repair and left iinstructions on how to do it.

Ordered the part and a couple of days later I popped off the old and popped on the new. It took longer to remove the part from the box than to install it.

Really nothing to it, especially since the original seal was coming apart. I just ripped it the rest of the way apart and removed it, then slid the new one on in its place.

Cracked, broken seal

The old seal had become brittle, cracked and fragmented and would no longer fit in the slot. Without it, washing had become a real mess. I took the new seal and snapped it in within a few seconds and was back up and running again. I looked everywhere for this seal, but this site was the only place I could find it. Thanks for having such a wide range of parts. This inexpensive broken part had made my machine unusuable. If it were not for you, I probably would have to resorted to a Sears appliance technician who would have charged $60 for just showing up.

the original piece had 3 metal clips that held the strip in place. It was a matter of sliding the strip off and sliding the new replacement part on. Time involved was less than one minute. It took longer to find the part than to install it. The part was ordered Thursday night and it was installed by Monday! Great service!

The washer lid seal was torn and because, I think, I was getting a moldy/musty smell from the washer and in the clothes.

I removed the torn part which just pulled off of the lid and snapped in the new piece. No tools were needed. I also wanted to add that it was great doing business with Part Select. The part came well packaged, it came in a timely manner, and it was the correct part ! I will try Part Select for any of my future repair part needs.
