As with any repair job, the hardest part is getting started and figuring out how to take it apart. I first tried to remove the top, by prying up on it,( his has worked in the past). This only broke the plastic retaining clips. I then removed the two plastic covers on each end of the control panel, then the two screws that hold the front of the control panel down. and lastly slid the control panel forward and out of its slots. I then used a 5/16th nutdriver to remove the four screws from the back panel. Now I was able to pull the panel back away from the washer body enough to use needle nose pliers to to remove the four electrical plugs located on the mixing valve. I used a felt tip marker to identify the locations of each plug. I used a 1/4 nut driver to remove the one mounting screw that held the valve in place and removed the valve. When the new valve arrived, It took about 15 minutes to re-install the valve and put everything back together.

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

Replaced all of the springs. I put the shell back on and the problem still exists. I thought $20.00 was worth seeing if this would resolve the issue. I don't want to keep throwing parts at it. I noticed some black suit under the machine. I will be buying a new washer.

In chasing down a plumbing problem elsewhere, I stripped the threads on the washer's inlet valve when swapping the hot and cold hoses.

Just kept removing rear panel fasteners until the panel could be separated from the washer sides and top. Removed the existing valve from the rear panel by removing one screw, and lifting the valve assembly slightly so that it could be pushed back through the rear panel holes. Removed the existing valve's wiring and outlet hose and transferred them to the new valve. When the four wires and one hose had been transferred from old to new, valve, inserted the new valve with connected wiring and hose back into the rear panel holes, and aligned the valve's screw hole with the hole in the rear panel. Replaced the screw which secures the valve assembly to the rear panel, and re-attached the rear panel.

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!

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.
