I noticed that the bottom two screws of the washer tub were quite rusted and there was a leak around them.
I had to

2) Remove the detergent dispenser,
3) pull off the bellows from the front panel and disconnect it from the fill input,
4) remove the drive belt,
5) unbolt the drive motor and detach electrical and ground,
6) remove the pins from the top of the shock absorbers and push them to the side of the cabinet,
7) remove the control board and remove electrical connections,
8) disconnect water line connecting detergent to top of wash tub,
9) lift tub (quite heavy) and remove springs from top of frame,
10) with tub facing up, remove the 23 bolts holding the tub halves together,
11) separate tub halves, remove gasket,
12) install new gasket and button everything back up in reverse order.

Installed New shock absorbers and new door strike. The existing broken shock absorbers caused the drum to oscillate and pull wires from door lock switch.

Door Strike Broken off in lock

  • Customer: Linda from Parkersburg WV
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

The end of the door strike had broken off in the lock. The door strike itself went on in just a few minutes. The time consuming part was getting the piece that had broken off out. After trying with tweezers to get it out, we took the lock off the machine and finally got it out. So....if the door strike looks damaged or isn't shutting properly, replace it before it breaks off inside the lock. We were pleased with how quickly it came. We ordered it Sunday evening and it came Tuesday morning.

the washer would not spin out all the water

  • Customer: Chris from Troy NY
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers

I took off the bottom cover by removing the two screws on the bottom cover. The shock absorber was completely broken off from its bracket. I pulled the plastic pin on the top and bottom of the shock absorber and installed the new shock. The machine works perfect again spinning out all the water. With the broken shock absorber the drum will shake violently and the machine shuts down. It makes it appear to be an electric control problem.

Door Lock and switch didn't work

  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins

Using a youtube video, (which might have actually been related to parts select), the door lock replacement went smoothly AFTER I couldn't SEE the SPRING around the rubber boot, as the spring was the SAME color and with a little bit of dust on it, was indistinguishable. As soon as I found it, the rest was fairly simple. I MIGHT even try replacing the moldy boot on these stupid front loaders...I paid for overnight shipping as I also had Geek squad guys on hold for repair, and needed to know fast, whether or not this would do the trick. HOORAY!

I watched a tutorial online (don't believe it he only showed the easy side) you have to hold the clip on the nylon pin and drive it out on both ends of the shock. on the rite side the lower pin hits on the back side and wont come out far enough to release the shock,i had to get on the backside and cut the pin off(thankfully their was a spare pin in the kit,you also have to disconnect a hose in front of the top pin on the rite side,i don't know how you would ever get this pin out if you ever had to again as you have to drive it in backwards. I neglected to tell you this was a top loader and the fron lower panel gives you access to these shocks.

Everything went great, except replacing the rubber seal, that was a little bit harder to put back in place. But other then that, went very well and easy to repair.

I removed the back cover after disconnecting the electric and shutting off the water. I then proceeded to disconnect the water lines and then removed the water inlet valve by removing the two screws holding it in place. Then I used pliers to remove the hose leading to the washer. After that I did everything in reverse and was back in business. The video was very helpful and it made me feel comfortable with the procedure. I now know a little more about washers. Thanks for the excellent information.

took off front an back panels-pushed half inch socket over pins and pulled them out with channel locks from opposite side of socket-need a piece of broom handle or something about 2 ft. long to tap pins back in to make installation easier

The entire process, from diagnosing the problem, ordering the part, and instalation was fantastic! I ordered the part Friday afternoon and had it at my door Saturday afternoon. I was so relieved to read the installation posts from other customers demonstrating how common this issue is and how easy it was to fix! I simply watched the installation video that was sent with my confirmation email. It is also conveniently located on your website. I had the new part installed in less than 30 minutes AND before my husband got home! Thank you Partselect.com!
