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.

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.
Thank you

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.

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.
