Unplug washer from the electrical receptacle. Remove one phillip screw on each side from the rear of the control panel and one hexnut with plastic strap from the rear of the control panel on each side. Pull control panel towards the front of the washer. Locate gray lid switch on the top left, rear side. Remove metal grounding screw with green wire from the metal top of the washer. Detach the gray lid switch from the electrical module and remove entire switch. At this time, open the washer machine lid carefully and gently install the new lid switch. Reattach the ground wire and metal screw to the chassis. Put control panel back in it's original location, carefully align each of the rear side phillip screws and tighten. Do the same with the two hex nuts and plastic strap. Close lid and remember to plug the washer back in to the electrical receptacle. Start the washer with your normal procedure! It should now start!!! Good luck!

We have a 6 year old top loading Whirlpool washer. The drum would not spin at the end of its wash cycle when it is supposed to spin dry. I followed the video exactly and it worked great. I replaced the clutch and rubber coupling. It is not difficult if go slow and methodical and you follow the excellent video My wife washes heavy rugs often and it wore out the clutch. The washer works better than it has in a long time.

Watched the video on your website and determined I could easily do the repair. Replaced the part for less than $20.00 including shipping and received it the next day. I ordered the part @ approximately 5 PM and the projected delivery was 1.8 days. To my delight the FedEx truck arrived by 1 PM the very next day and we were up and running within 24 hours of ordering the Direct Drive Motor Coupling. I will definitely use your services again. Special thanks to your video team. I was able to watch step by step how to disassemble and reassemble the washer etc.

When the machine was filling with water about 30% of it would miss the tub and run down the back of the machine and on to the floor.

After removing the front, sides and top of the machine (all one piece) the springs were relativley easy to access. I discover one of the brakets that held one of the springs had rusted and would no longer support the spring. I then replaced the bracket and springs. I Re-assyembled the machine and it work as good as new.

This is the first time I've ever fixed anything. I had no idea what I was doing but like the rest of you I decided to man up and get er done myself! I also didn't want to spend 200-300 bucks on a repair guy. So using this site and google. I figured out how to remove the back plate of my washer so I could correctly diagnose the problem...in fact I didnt' even have too remove the back plate to diagnose it because when I started to move the washer I found several broken plastic triangular pieces and a round rubber piece with 6 triangular holes in it. On one of the broken pieces was a serial number of some sort. So I googled what i found and matched what i found on underneath my machine with a part i found on this website which turned out to be the direct drive motor coupling...i figured i was in for a rough battle with the machine but it actually turned out to be pretty easy...in fact it would've been easier had this machine not been serviced before in the past...(i'll get to that later) first step was to remove the back plate...using youtube i figured out how to remove the metal clamps that hold the cabinet to the back plate (you will need a flat head screw driver). Rest was elementary it took me about 2 minutes to remove the back plate after spending probably 30 minutes of research online (i like to make sure i'm doing everything correctly so i watch several videos and do a ton of reading before i mess with anything)*also a side note make sure you unplug the machine before you do anything! Also turn off the water and remove the draining tubes from the back of the machine because you will need to tilt the whole thing on its back failure to do this will result in a watery mess and u could kink the drain tube which will lengthen your repair time like it did with me. Also remove the hot and cold water tubes from teh back...remember that the hot water is always on the bottom memorize where you put the tubes...u can always check which is which by turning the water back on but it will save you sometime* once i got the back plate off i tilted the machine on its back so i could get to the motor and the water pump...there are 2 metal clamps that hold the water pump to the motor. All it takes is a flat head screw driver to remove these clamps once you get the 2 clamps off you can lift the water pump right off the motor its really easy. This exposes the motor which houses the direct drive motor coupling. I inspected what was left of the coupling and if there was any doubt that it was the motor coupling there wasn't anymore because it was clearly broken and the rubber piece that was supposed to sit between the 2 plastic things was gone. Needless to say it was a mess and i knew it was gonna be a challenge to remove the broken coupling. It was surprisingly easy to remove the coupling from the top of the motor compared to the middle of it. There are 2 more metal clamps that fasten the motor in place so it doesn't move around...there are 2 screws that hold these clamps in place. I removed one of them with no problem but the other one was stripped extremely bad i was completely unable to remove it. If you are in this bad boat like i was in i have a solution for you...you only need to remove one screw if you can grab the motor and rotate it enough u can remove the clamp from the metal plate without ever having to remove the clamp at all...its a little difficult and you will have to use a bit of elbow grease to do it but it can be done. Once i achieved this it was a lot easier to access the broken coupling from the middle of the motor. I took the back end of a hammer and evenly jiggled the coupling loose until it popped off...it took a solid 10 minutes tho since the coupling had shattered so bad there wasn't much for the hammer to hold onto. Once i did this i was able to get the new pieces in place...it was a little tricky to line things up correctly but after awhile i was able to get it to fit perfectly...I put the machine back

No aggitator or tub drive

I did like the video said about the removal of the control pnl. Now removal of the of the top and front cover was a bit more of a learn as you go to remove all the hoses that go to the fabrix sofner, bleach, and detergent compartments. It was done with the aid of a pair of pliers. There was 4 lines in the top at the back left that has to be removed to finish the cover removal! Now after that it was easy. the rest was like the video. Motor and pump removal simple. I would remember to inspect the inside of the pump to remove any trash that might get wrapped on the impeller.less than hour start to finish and it was a cheap fox and better than buying a new washer!

Removed the top part of the electronic panel. Removed the top lid. Removed the old tub springs and replaced them with new ones. Works great and for only $20.00. It beats buying a new washer. Thanks!

It was my Mothers washer & did find out the Direct drive Motor Coupling was a little warn & replaced not to hard but took more time to get top off because you have to really get under the top off hood & clips where really in there the vidio showed held on with screws & on this Kenmoore Elite the Clips are under the Hood which does make it alittle bit harder so you have to be careful not to bend up the Hood where all your controls are , But did not solve the issue. Looked at lid switch & it was damaged so now going to Replace it. If this was my machine probably would be a bit easier to have seen it is the Lid switch hopefully this next part will fix the problem.

Parts Select is AMAZING!! It directed us to the correct parts. Ordering was easy. But the best part was the videos. The step by step instruction was a godsend. We followed it, paused it, compared it, did it. We had to battle grease and tight quarters, but got it done. The machine works good. We spent about $65 as opposed to $400+ for a new washer. Great website.

When my 13 yr old washer stopped working the timing was not at all good to spend money on a new one. I have two of my children getting marriied within the next year and funds are tight. I decided to troubleshoot it myself online by googling my problem. I found out what I thought would be the parts I needed, I took a chance and ordered them. The bonus was the videos that you emailed me with the complete installation instructions. I am a banker and a 53 yr old woman ...not exactly a handy man. With your videos I was able to fix my washer by my self for just the cost of parts...so my wedding budget is still in place. I highly reccommend PartSelect for anyone...cause If I can do it anyone can do it! Thank you PartSelect

I actually thought the job of replacing the clutch was more difficult than it actually was. I simply watched the video on how to do it and it was really a task that pretty much anyone could do. The only bit of trouble I had was putting the C-shaped wire clip back on the shaft to hold the clutch in place......other than that everything else was pretty easy.....I would definately use Partselect again...
