No problem - I've done this before. Pull the old one out (or wait for it to fall out) and pop the new one in. Very easy.

New hose arrived in 2 days in excellent condition. Repair was fairly easy and fit perfectly. Did notice, however, that new hose was upgraded with a thicker part and a clamp that fit much better. Old hose cracked from repeated shaking where clamp was not tight enough and the hose at this clamp was too thin compared to the new hose. We felt it seemed obvious that the manufacturer must have had many complaints about this original hose. But thank you for your fast delivery and excellent new part.

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!

I actually thought the job of replacing the clutch was more difficult than it actually was. I simply watched the video on how to do it and it was really a task that pretty much anyone could do. The only bit of trouble I had was putting the C-shaped wire clip back on the shaft to hold the clutch in place......other than that everything else was pretty easy.....I would definately use Partselect again...

Washer leaking

After watching some on-line vids, I determined it was the center post, or tub, gasket at the bottom. A cheap part, and easy to snap-out the old and snap-in the new - But - I had to dissassemble the washer into individual washer component molecules. Luckily, I'd done this recently to replace the clutch drive, then the motor, then this. Not too bad, really. Washer body off (2 screws and two snap-links); agitator out (7/16" socket on extension); bang off tub nut (heavy hammer and punch); bang off drive block (hammer again); and pull tub up an out. Tub drain disconnected (pliers); pull off level sensing tube; three spring mounts (nutdriver); then just yank tub up. Poke out Centerpost gasket; snap in a new one; reassemble. Piece of cake.

After repair, had to re-align the front head of the cabinet several times to get it to slide in correctly.I saved myself the cost of a repair service call. Followed instructions at the following youtube.

Had a laptop with the repair video on next to washer and paused after each set of instructions to complete each task. Went perfectly! Only tricky part was fitting the cover back but eventually got it with a bit of jiggling. Very impressed with the instructional video as everything was where they showed it and came apart exactly as explained and more importantly went back together correctly.

Loud bang at the end of the spin cycle and symptoms of an unbalanced load.

After reading everyone elses stories, I purchased all new springs(5), new spring brackets(one of mine was rusted really badly)and all new wear pads(two sets of 3pcs each). The rusted spring bracket was the most time consuming as the screw was rusted into the bracked so I had to drill it out. Other than that, the actual spring replacement was easy. Took maybe 10 minutes. The wear pads were another story. I'm a pretty good mechanic and I had a bit of a struggle getting the old pads out. I used a long, flat head screwdriver to pry them out. Once they were out the new ones weren't too tough to get back in. Took about 20 minutes all together. I stongly recommend watching the video on removing the washer cabinet first. It will save you some time. Acutally, watch the videos on all of the parts to simplify the process. Oh and by the way, all of my washer problems are gone. Well worth my time and $70 in parts. Good web site!
