I first thought that the fan belt came off. Got the cloths out of machine, and tipped on over to look under, where I discovered that there was no fan belt. Looked online for answers, and found that machine was direct drive. Looked around under machine for something damaged or broke. Saw the direct drive coupling was cracked into three pieces. Ordered the part I was 95% sure I needed, and it was at my house in less than 48 hours. Watched a video on how to replace the direct drive coupling. This was amazing and easy to use information. Made me feel like a pro. The video covered everything you could imagine for the repair, step by step. Machine runs now as good as new.

Machine would not spin when pumping out water

You have to determine if it is the COUPLING or the TRANSMISSION or the CLUTCH. I checked the coupling and that wasn't it. The machine did rotate back and forth in the wash cycle so I thought it would be either the clutch or the timer assembly. I ordered the clutch and used the video to guide me through the installation. One problem was the PUMP was stuck on the shaft so I removed the hosed and took out the rest as one unit. The clutch was full of crud and after replacing it and checking for leaks, the machine runs perfectly now! I would suggest you replace the hose washers when you reattach them to the machine as I rechecked after turning on the water and found a TINY drip that would have been a problem over time!

FIRST, I went to the wrong web site, and thought based upon their diagnostics that I had a sock stuck in the pump. The machine would run, but not pump nor spin. Further, I had no idea precisely how to get at the pump, which is located at the front to the machine. Bailed 20+ gallons of water, and a full load of wet clothes out, took the machine apart from the back (precisely opposite to the correct approach) and took the pump out--no socks, pump OK. Searched with the machine Model # and found Parts Select, and its help video, statistical analysis, and feedback. I jumped the broken switch, so I could wash clothes (a cheap piece of whirlpool engineering dedicated to the appliance repair trade's pension plans, no doubt), put the machine back together, and ordered the part off the web site page with the repair video. Wrong part showed up two shipping days later, and after talking to customer service, they shipped the correct part, received two days later. Took me less than 20 minutes to install the right part. It took me at least 45 minutes to repack the wrong part, drive to the post office, and then I had to pay postage, and am still waiting to get my $37 back--oh, and I am out the money for the right part while waiting to get my money back for the wrong part, and paying postage to send it back--and for $4 gas to get back and forth to the post office, and spending my time correcting the part of the problem not of my making. Prolly net/net I will still be monetarily better off than having called an appliance repair guy and getting a stiff bill for the house call, and full retail for the part.This web site nailed the problem based upon my symptoms--and I ordered the part shown in the video that was identical to what was broken in my machine, but was initially sent something else. If I had found this web site first, I would have saved myself three hours of figuring out how to take the machine apart backwards without ruining anything in the process, and removing a pump that was fine. Putting it back together after viewing the video took 15 minutes.....the only down side of my experience was getting sent the wrong part (a lid switch that did not fit my machine, and did not match what the tech was removing in the video--one with the three long lead wires, ground wire) and paying postage and taking my time to repack and mail.

Take off motor so the transmission comes out easier.You need to remove the agitator first.Took off old clutch and replaced it with all the parts that comes with the kit. Takes about 30-45 mins. Works great. The clutch didn't look like it was bad,but what a difference.

Easy as ONE TWO not even a THREE. Just pulled off the cap on top the agitator and dropped in the dispenser. Gave it a little push to seat it and done. Sure beats the softener ball.

Washer would pump water but the spin cycle got slower & slower

  • Difficulty: Easy

Because the washer was over 5 yrs. old I took this opportunity to thoroughly clean the machine also. I took the cab.completely off including the back. I then removed the agitator,motor & pump as an assembly. I was shocked at the sledge that had built up at the top edge of the plastic tub. A thin brush and the water hose took care of that.Next I removed the old clutch & installed the new assem. reassembled the motor pump & cab. Ran the machine in the garage for a cycle to make sure it operated properly without any leaks before I hooked it up inside. I was impressed with the how to video it was a real confidence builder when undertaking this repair, also the price of the part was good and delivery was prompt. Parts Select has a new customer.

My wife actually figured out the problem, ordered the part, which came quickly. I watched the video and fixed the problem. I'm sure this saved us a lot of money. Instead of a technician coming out and replacing the part for about $200, it cost us $25 and an hours work. Thanks. You'll be hearing from me for future repairs!
