Washer wasn't agitating or spinning. The timer was working, the motor coupler was intact so I figured I would start with the simplist thing and go from there. If all else failed, I was reacdy to buy a new washer.

Unplugged the washer and unscrewed hoses. Unscrewed the 2 screws on the back of the control panel and folding it up. Took off the 2 metal ties to get the cabinet off. Once off, I unscrewed the ground from the old Lid Switch and popped out. Put the new Lid Switch in, screwed the ground back in, replaced cabinet, clamps, put the control panel back in place and screwed the 2 screws on back of the control panel back in. Screwed the hoses back on, plugged the washer back in, everything works great again.

The cap thingy seal broke and splattered fabric softener.

The prooblem started with the hole in the bottom frame, for tub spring wore through, spring fell off, then a spring retainer worn broke in 2 releasing 1 suspention spring. All springs were about to fail, metal very thin at at the contact points. Drilled a new hole for the new suspension spring, replace all 3 brackets, worn also, springs, and retainers with a small dab of grease at the contact points. The new springs mad the tub more stable than before the failure, and silent when spinning or washing. Be careful to get the springs in the right direction, then the spring comes over the outside the brackets and retainers, other way they rub in spots. On this machine one was backwards from the factory 18 years ago, surely that accounts for more stable running.

Took the cabinet apart really easily with Part Selects helpful video. Removed old suspension springs by removing outer brackets on two of them and by using pliers on the third one. The tub spring was totally missing. Put on two new brackets and springs with the nut driver. Then stretched the third spring into place. Replaced the tub spring by stretching into place and then put cabinet back together. All done very quickly!!! Now it works perfectly and runs very quietly.

Won’t go on unless the lid slams shut.

First, unplug the unit. Remove the two screws on each side of the control panel on the back. They are located at the top corners of the unit. The base is held on by clips you press in on from the bottom. You will have to reach in over the tub and press in on clips, one each on the far side. At the left, you will be able to feel the lid switch, the clip is just to the left of the switch. It is about ½ inch wide, press firmly with your thumb. You may want to wear glove for this unless you like battle scars. Once done the control panel should hinge up. The switch is on the left side. To remove the switch, I first detached the wire harness to the control panel and unscrewed the grounding wire. Open the lid and the switch pulls right out. The new switch drops right in. Attach the wire harness and grounding wire. Place the control panel back side first at an angle making sure the back metal panel is lined up, once in place it should snap back in place when pressed down firmly. You might have to reach in over the tub again and pull the clip down (keep Band-Aids on hand). Plug the unit back in and you are good to go. Raise and close the lid, you should here the switch click on and off.

Broken lid switch. The BIG problem was trying to figure out how to remove the control panel. There was no screws on the back top corners nor two screws at the bottom corners. The front end caps was not removal either. Finally I found on the internet that if you slide a putty knife under front corner of the control panel you can push back the spring clip on each that will allow the panel to be removed and lifted up. From there the lid switch is located on the left side and is easy to replace from this point forward. You can read other instructions on details on replacing the lid switch.

I am so proud of myself for repairing my washer! The installation video provided by Partselect was wonderful. I especially liked that I could go back a replay it during the repair process. Thank you! It was also great that it was right on the online receipt. This job took me an hour including the time needed to find the right tools! Just follow the video exactly. I did have to put the agitator dogs in place several times but that was due to my inexperience. The only thing I questioned was the statement, "Don't over tighten the bolt on the agitator." Since this was the first time I have ever done anything like this I did not know what "over tighten" really meant. I didn't crank it down hard and then backed it off a bit. The washer washes better than ever and saved my purchasing a new one. This cost less than $20.00 (including shipping) and an hour of my time. It was well worth it. Thanks again for the wonderful installation video! FYI, I am a 64 year old female and I fixed my washer without any assistance (other than the video)!

I researched the troubleshooting on PartSelect.com and determined the clutch was going out on my direct drive Whirlpool washer. I ordered the part, found the instructional video that actually had my exact washer being worked on, I followed all of the steps of replacing the clutch and in a snap, my washer was spinning. I've worked in apartment maintenance for years and PartsSelect.com has always been my only resource for appliance parts and repairs. The prices are great (I've compared most parts websites and 8 times out of 10, partsselect.com is cheapest), the shipping is extremely fast and the parts are alway right. Great site!!!!

Washer shook in the SPIN cycle.

Follow the video to remove the cabinet. Did NOT have to lay the unit on its back in order to replace all 5 springs. These may be easily replaced with the washer standing upright. The back Suspension Spring was removed by using the access hole in the back of the washer to remove the screw holding the back spring bracket in place. Reassembled the cabinet per the video. Except for moving the washer around, this was an extremely easy repair. To facilitate moving the washer - use Moving PADS placed under the 4 feet of the washer.

Machine wobbled during spin cycle. Appeared to have some loosened part in the rear of the machine (noted some flexing on the front of the cabinet during spin).

Disconnected electrical and then water inputs on the rear of the cabinet. Tipped the machine onto its front. Found that a spring was unhooked and dangling from a bracket. I searched for the location to secure the spring and found a hole on the rear base of the cabinet rusted through. I drilled another mounting hole nearby, Since the original spring had also broke, I replaced it with a new one from PartSelect, securing it between its bracket and the new retaining hole. Returned the machine to its upright position, reconnected water input lines, then its electrical. The machine works fine once again.

Washer stopped running. Would fill water and stop.
