I removed the belt and pully form under the washer. Lefted the top cover, removed the hardware above the tub, took the front cover panel off to gain access to the tub. Used pliers to remove the springs. Lifted the tub up high enough to install the snubber ring. After putting tht washer back together and doing the first the load the washer stopped banging.

I replaced the suspension springs and the snubber ring. It was a ittle dificult because there was no door in back of machine. so i had to remove entire cabnet. using the quarters to spread the springs was a great help. it would have been a lot harder if you had not showed me this trick. Machine is working great now. Thank You.

I borrowed a 13mm socket wrench. Removed the softener dispenser, prying it off with a flat screwdriver. Unscrewed the 13mm bolt, lifted off the broken agitator, placed the new agitator in place and bolted it down. At that point, the dispenser simply snaps back into place. Very simple replacement.

I don't think I have a lot to add, there are some great instructions and comments already on the site. Our washing machine is getting a little old but this was a fairly easy fix. Our washing machine was constantly off balance and walking across the floor. I can't believe how much of a difference these little parts made. It saved us a ton of money so thank you PartsSelect!

EXAMINED THE WASHER AND DETERMINED THE HOSES WERE FINE. REMOVED THE ACCESS PANEL FROM THE BACK OF THE WASHER, PULLED OUT THE DRAIN PUMP. LOOKING INSIDE THE PUMP WHILE TURNING THE PULLEY I WAS ABLE TO DETERMINE NOTHING INSIDE THE PUMP WAS MOVING. ONCE THE PUMP WAS PULLED APART (4 SCREWS) IT WAS OBVIOUS THE WHEEL INSIDE THE PUMP BROKE OFF. WE ORDERED THE NEW PART ON SUNDAY (FROM PARTSELECT) AND IT WAS SITTING ON MY DOOR STEP WEDNESDAY. THAT'S FAST. 30 MINUTES LATER EVERYTHING WAS HOOKED BACK UP AND WE WERE BACK IN BUSINESS. ONE LAST POINT: WHEN PUTTING THE DRIVE BELT BACK ON, PUT THE BELT ON THE 2 SMALL PULLEYS FIRST, THEN PUT IT ON THE LARGE PULLEY LAST. THANKS TO PARTSELCT !

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.
