Water was leaking when the washer was filling

All I had to do was take the front of the washer off by unscrewing two screws at the bottom front panel using a screw driver, then loosen the top by taking two hexnut screws out from under the top (in front top corners of the washer. Next, I lifted the top of the washer up (which is on hinges, disconnected one hose clap at the top rear laft corner of the washer and pulled out the rubber injector valve which has the plastic injector nozzle inside of it. I inserted the new plastic onzzle in the new rubber valve, placed it back in the hose, tightened the hose clamp and replaced the screws in the top of the washer and put the front panel back in place and screwed in the bottom. It could not have been simpler and saved me at least $60-$80 dollars in repair costs.(I know because I paid to have this replaced once before, but never again.)

The repair went fairly smooth following the directions that came with the damper pad kit from partselect.com. It only took as long as it did because the glue has to dry for the pads and it takes a few minutes to scrape off the old pads and glue. this can definitely be done by a first time do it yourselfer. Pliers are needed to remove a spring hose clamp in the back of the washer drum. Two 4x4's are needed to rest the washer drum on in order to gain access to the pads (in directions provided).

I got online and found Parts Select which help me learn how to open the washer top. At that point I could see the problem and using this website I was able to buy just the parts I needed to replace a leaking backflow valve on the water inlet to the washer. It was great to quickly solve the problem and purchase the parts.

The most important part of my repair was watching the video that was sent to me with my order confirmation. After I viewed it, the rest was easy. The only hard part was moving the washer away from the wall!

Exactly as shown in your provided video from You Tube. What a life saver. The description of needed tools, and the fact that the main nuts securing the tub were REVERSE thread! I would not have suspected that and probably would still be beating on them, tightening them rather than loosening them!It is worth the price to purchase the spanner wrench (correct style), used to remove those tub nuts. Thanks for the great service and the video. Well done!

Replace motor pulley and belts

  • Customer: Richard from Anchorage AK
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Wrench(Adjustable)

I had to turn the washer on the side to see the motor pulley was broken. I couldn't find the part locally; they said it was no longer available/manufactured. I went online and ordered it from PartSelect.com I live in Alaska and it arrived 5 days later. I did an easy install and only needed an Allen wrench to remove the old part and put on the new one and 2 new drive belts. The washer works better than it has in several years.

Washer was very noisey on the agitation cycle.

You'll be working on the very bottom of the washer. Remove the Phillips-head screw on the bottom, center pulley, then remove the washer and serrated pulley stop. Turn the pulley to unthread it from the shaft. The brake rotor bearing will be on top of the pulley. Remove it by hand (not a press fit) and reinstall the new bearing in the same orientation. Thread the pulley back onto the shaft to the original depth. Reinstall the serrated pulley stop, washer and screw.

Located leak. Removed part. After entering model and serial numbers located necessary part order number. Received quickly and had everything back in working order immediately! Please note when working with scaled and lime build-up on parts, I completely clean surrounding areas and necessary related parts with "lime-away" prior to new part installation!!!

Cracked Water Inlet Valve

  • Customer: Kajanda from Oak Brook IL
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers, Socket set

I ordered the part. Watched the video and did the repair. I removed the cover plate on the washer, removing the screws. I then, removed the broken water inlet valve and replaced it with the new one. I placed the cover plate back onto the rear of the washer and "VOILE", it was done. I am a divorced mother of three, who has never attempted to do any type of home repairs, however, the way PartSelect has set up the website, it made it easy to determine what part I needed and provided me with a video which gave me step by step instructions on how to repair it. I even posted my victory on Facebook! Thanks PartSelect.
