Removed the agitator. Then removed the nut holding the agitator shaft. I set the machine on its side. Working from the bottom, i removed the three bolts which hold the transmission/motor. I removed the wiring. Pulling the unit down and out of the shaft bearing. The clutch assembly is on the transmission/motor unit shaft. Remove the snap ring and retaining ring for the shaft. Replace the clutch unit in the reverse order. The hardest part to replace is the retaining ring on the shaft. Pay close attention on how everything comes apart and you won't have any problems. Saved myself a lot of money.

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.

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!

Everything worked perfectly---thanks to the suggestion of your call center agent. She suggested that since the replacement door handles were no longer available, I should consider repainting them--it worked like a charm. Please tell her she was a life saver. We rent that house in Fl and my returning tenants had complained about the discoloring refer handles. Thank you

The retainer was broken and likely because the washer was worn down and allowed the whole thing to move more and more over time. Got the exact parts I needed and the repair could not have been easier.
