was really easy. I watched the video and was done in less than 10 minutes. I read other stories and pushing the tub over and removing and installing the screws would have been very difficult. Opening the lid was very easy then the screws are right there in front of you.

Lots of water on laundry room floor. A couple of months earlier, there was a noise like when you put a playing card on your bike spokes...

I had some expert advise on what the problem was so that made it easier to consentrate on the fix. I was surprised to find so much information on this web page. Getting the right part ordered was also very easy. The repair instructions given by other people was all correct, tiling the machine to get the belt off, removing the back access panel, was all correct and made it easy. The hard part was getting the machine out of the small wash room and into the garage where I had room to work on it. A good dolly and a wooden ramp came in handy . A word of advice woud be to operate the hot & cold water faucets on & off every year or so to be sure they work easily when the time comes, maybe an emergency. After 12 years I was worried my valves would give me a problem. (.they didnt).

Initially, it was uncertain how to remove the front panel. There were hidden clips that I was unaware of. But, the video on partsselect's website was excellent. It gave me the confidence exactly what to component to purchase and how to repair my washer. My repair was identical to the drain pump video and had no issues what so ever.

Washer jumping around during spin cycle

I used Utube to search for Performa Washing machine jumping around. You will find several videos that will be extreamly helpful in understanding exactly how to go about changing the sunbber ring. The snubber ring is fairly easy to change out. Quarters were used to hold the springs apart so they can be removed. Push the tub forward and away from the spring you want to remove. Install several quarters in the spring. Use as many as you can get in. Then pull the tub toward you and the spring can be removed from the tub. There are six springs to remove. I just left them laying in place at the bottom of the washing machine base. There are videos on utube also of using the quarters to remove the springs. Of course if you have spring removal tool for this purpose so much the better. I didn't have one. Good luck with your install. MB in TN

I am a single women and was very proud of this accomplishment:My washer began making horrible noise when agitating (only), I did some research (on this site) on what the problem could be. I decided to replace the drain pump and belt. It was so much easier than I expected and now, it works with no bad sounds. I have a very simple model, nothing fancy and I hope that is why it was so easy.. not much going on. I am proud of myself since I did all this on my own.. no man helped! :)

Noisy during spin cycle and Burning Smell

  • Customer: Ken from Glenmoore PA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Socket set
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
I lifted the washer and supported it in the front, then slipped the drive belt off the large agitator pulley. I then tried to turn each of the 3 pulleys under the machine. The Drain Pump was definitely seized. I removed the small access panel in the rear of the machine, removed the 2 drain hoses by releasing the clamps with pliers. Removed the 3 screws with a socket wrench and removed the pump. The new pump was a perfect fit, and we are back up and running. Thank You.

Machine making grinding noise and vibrating excessively

Followed existing instruction to get tub and transmission out of the machine but we couldn't get the transmission free. Wound up taking the tub with the transmission attached to an appliance dealter who said we needed to remove the retaining clip on the bearing at the top of the transmission (inside the tub). We didn't have the tool to do that so we left it at the service center (60 miles from our location) and paid $291 for the repair then had to reassemble the unit when we got it home.
