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.

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.

Washer doesn't spin

The hardest part was figuring out what the problem was. The washer wouldn't spin so the clothes were really wet at the end of the cycle.
First I removed the agitator, because a screw connects the agitator to the shaft.
Next I put the washer on it's front.
Disconnected the water pump clips and pulled it off the motor shaft.
Electrically disconnected the motor (make sure you unplug the washer before starting)
Removed 3 bolts holding the gear case and motor.
Then I pulled the gear case and motor out the bottom, the shaft is about two feet long and the clutch comes with it.
Replace the clutch and put the shaft back where it belongs. Make sure the clutch spring doesn't bump against the plastic brake thing, it will stop you from pushing the shaft all the way in.
Pushing the gear case and motor assy the last inch and aligning the holes for the bolts was the hardest part. The bolts aren't long enough to grab the threaded hole, so you have to get it perfectly aligned. After about a half-hour of fighting it, I finally used a hammer and lightly tapped it into place.
Just put everything back together in the reverse order.

Tub out of balance on spin cycle. Very Noisy!

  • Customer: Stacy from Markle IN
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins

I the took washer to where I could lay it on its side.
Laying it on its side lets the suspension spring at the top go slack. Making pulling it from bracket easier.
Next , I lifted the tub up with a 2x4 and blocked it with another wood block. This let me have slack in the lower springs.
Of coarse I saved the hardest one (behind the motor) for last. I only swore a little! But got it to come out.
By the way, put in each new spring, before going on to the next one.
The new springs helped a lot, but I ended up ordering the wear pads a day or two later. They were very easy to replace. Just pop the old ones out of the frame with a screw driver. then pop the new ones back into the holes and you are done.
You may just want to buy them both and do it all at once. Saving moving the washer twice!

It suprised me how much water came out of the machine when I tipped the machine on it's back. I needed a short pan or bowl to catch the water. The hardest part was installing that c-shaped spring.

All I had to do was follow the instructions on your web site and it was pretty easy.. The only reason it took so long was because my washer is in a spot hard to get to... I had to remove the dryer to get to the washer and then take it out of the laundry room to work on it. Other than the time it took to do that the actual repair only took 40 minutes. Your video of the repair was excellent... Thanks so much.. Saved at least $500 by replacing the clutch...
