Drum moves and strange noise when spinning

  • Customer: Kenneth from Hillsborough NJ
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Screw drivers

When I pulled the machine out, I noticed one of the suspension springs on the floor. I followed the video supplied by PartSelect.com and suggestions by other folks. I started with the spring that was missing, which was a mistake since I did not know that there are custom spring clips which hold the spring to the drum. Once I found the missing part the installation was very easy. I used the suggestion by another post, of wedging a block of wood between the back of the machine and drum, to relax the rear suspension spring, which eliminated having to remove the back of the machine or tipping the machine on the back to get at the screw. I will always look to PartSelect.com for any future appliance repairs. You are the greatest

Washer was not agitating and was making odd noises

  • Tools Required: Socket set

Super easy and cheap repair/replacement of dog ears...after watching the internet video. Much easier the expected actually, as it took less than 15 minutes total time. you will need a decent socket set with a long extension but that is all. everything else is done by hand.

Agitator cam replacement with rusted agitator bolt

  • Customer: Michael from Edmond OK
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Socket set
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
Thought it would be a quick fix. Dogs were worn and agitator was free spinning. Pulled cap and couldn't see bolt head due to rust. Attempts to remove bolt were futile - just crumbled and rounded off. Craftsman bolt out and screw out failed. Blindly drilled out bolt and incidentally hit plastic on lower agitator. Once bolt head off, easily slid agitator off spindle. Used slip joint pliers to grab bolt shaft and unscrew it. Used part select and found whole assembly (upper and lower agitator) and new bolt for less than the lower agitator at my local appliance parts store - which they were going to have to order. Agitator arrived at my doorstep in less than 24 hours with standard shipping!

WASHER WOULD NOT TURN ON

  • Customer: Albert from MIAMI FL
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

UNSCREW THE SCREWS FROM THE BACK OF THE CONTROL PANEL AND LIFT THE PANEL BACK. THE LID SWITCH IS ON THE TOP LEFT SIDE OF THE WASHER. I UNSCREWED THE GROUND WIRE, LIFT THE LID SWITCH OUT AND REPLACED IT. THEN I REVERSED THE WHOLE PROCESS TO PUT IT ALL BACK. ALL BEING THREE SREWS AND THE LID SWITCH. THERE WAS NO NEED TO REMOVE ANYTHING ELSE. IT COULD NOT HAVE BEEN ANY EASIER.

The cam dogs were making a noise and slipping

The only thing that made this job hard was that I had a difficult time separating the upper and lower agitator. I am a big fellow and all the pulling and prying would not make them separate. I finally got them apart after using my Dremel tool on the cam housing. It appeared to me that it had been glued down to the lower agitator at the factory as this was the first time I ever replaced these parts. Should be easy to replace the parts next time though. I would suggest purchasing another rubber washer for the single bolt. It split on me when I tightened it down. The trust spacer didn't appear to be worn at all and I could have reused the old one. The parts appeared to be OEM and they fit perfectly. The delivery time was very quick as well.

Lid Seal Was Cracked

So Easy! Just slid old one off and sled new one on. This is the rubber seal that you touch when you open the lid. I was afraid I would get the wrong part but am so glad others left notes so I could tell this was the right one. And it definitely is worth the replacement cost.

Not spinning fast enough to take out water in spin cycle's

  • Customer: Jason from Appleton WI
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers, Socket set, Wrench set

I simply watched the video that was on YouTube for this site. It was dead on with my washer and super easy to do. The step by step was just awesome and easy to follow. The repair took just over an hour and I even cleaned the entire inside of this 12 year old washer which was pretty cruddy. The washer now spins great and works like new again. All for about $50. Thanks.

I followed the online video, which is 4 minutes long. A picture truly is worth a thousand words, and a video even better. It took me longer to get out my tools than to do the repair.

A word to the wise watch the repair video first guys and save an hour or 2 of aggrivation. I saved a couple hundred bucks instead of having the repair guys do it. It was easier than I thought. Machine runs like new again. Thanks Partselect. L.A.B. Rocland, Mass.

the video pretty much told the whole story except I forgot to put the plastic collar piece on the new clutch when I put it back together so I got to do it twice. second time went even easier. Thanks for the video,it was great.

Washer would try to agitate during spin cycle.

  • Customer: Lorin from Arlee MT
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers, Socket set, Wrench(Adjustable)

Very old washing machine began to make a horrible noise and agitator would attempt to agitate during spin cycle. Eventually determined that the problem was in the transmission. The way the transmission works is that when the motor runs in one direction a metal fork pushes on a cam mechanism and lifts a spring loaded gear on the agitator shaft from the gears that make it move, putting it in neutral so that it can spin freely with the basket in the spin cycle. When the motor runs the other way the same fork pulls on the cam and drops the gear down so that it engages with the agitator mechanism. The problem was that the plastic cam pieces on the base of the shaft had worn down to the point where they where not fully lifting the gear clear and it was partially engaging with the drive mechanism. Repair was relatively straight forward except the YouTube video that I was using showed the parts on upside down. All the other transmission parts are labeled with TOP on one side but oddly the cam pieces are not marked. For reference the U shaped protrusion on the cam parts goes on the top of the assembly, not the bottom. All in all it took me about 12 hours to do this fix, but at least 10 of that was simply trying to figure out how the mechanism worked and tracking down the problem. Be sure to refill the transmission case and use some RTV sealant to seal the cover back on when you are done, just like you would for an oil pan on an engine.

Found this web site after reading forums on slow spins and I determined it was a clutch problem. Ordered the clutch from "Part Select", watched the 19 minute video (excellent) on changing out a clutch from this website. After 1.5 day delivery, I installed per video. Very pleased, thank you; Dave

The seal was broken on the agitator cap barrier

  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

Removed the fabric softner at the top of the agitator (needed a screw driver to pry it loose) and reached in to grab the barrier with my hand and pulled it out, very simple to do.When I put the new one in I put some liquid soap on the gasket and it snapped right into place.Very easy to do, all is well now, thanks Part Select.
