I unscrewed the three small sheet-metal screws holding the washer top to the frame and slid the top aft and laid it on the floor. Then I took fine sandpaper and cleaned the plug contacts from the various components connected to the main control board. After five years or so I have found that most copper connectors will corrode and prevent electricity from flowing properly. That did not correct the problem. I checked the flow control device and it appeared clear and not binding. Then I pulled the drain pump filter and it was clear. I could hear the water pump running and the water flowing out the normal rubber hose. But the washer would stop three or four times during a wash cycle. Pressing 'RESET" and "START" would start the washer again. At the end of the cycle my wife noticed there was water in the washer tub. It had to come in via the water control valve. This is the valve you screw the hot and cold water hose into. It is a ice blue color and held in by one screw. I unscrewed the two hoses and removed the one screw. Then I had to slip the black supply hose from the valve leading to the flow meter. I disconnected the four electrical connectors and installed the new valve and found the screw hole did not align with the screw hole in the washer frame. I used a eighth-inch metal drill and drilled a new hole which lengthened the slot that the mounting screw normally went through. After I re-connected the hot and cold water lines to the valve I turned the water back on and put the top back on the washer. The washer worked like new. No stops. I did notice before changing the valve the water would flow into the washer tub like beer coming from a tap. After installing the new valve the water flowed in at three times the rate like a garden hose.

Shocks are the #1 recommendation for this problem, but they were not the solution. The problem turned out to be broken weld in the stainless tub. Three of the shocks can be replaced from the front, the one under the motor can only be accessed from the back of the machine, which means it has to be pulled out away from the wall. Taking the old ones out is kind of a pain, they don't twist off easily and there is little room to use tool. Putting the new ones in is easy, they just twist into place.

Part was $150 and the going rate to replace the pump by a repair person is $300=$450. This was super easy and took about 15 minutes, including draining the old pump with my wet vac!! I messed around witht he old one trying to clean it, etc for several weeks because I'm cheap and didn't want to spend the $150. SPEND THE MONEY AND DO IT YOURSELF.

need a star srew driver to install

  • Customer: amilee from housotn TX
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins

The installation requires a star shaped screw driver to remove the existing the screw holding the door handle. The same screws must be saved and used to install the new handle, which does not come with new screws. So, you do not want to strip the screws removing. Plan ahead with the correct screw driver- you can determine what is needed by looking at the screw head and purchasing an appropriate tool. My handy neighbor installed my new handle, but the screws can no longer be removed should I have to replace the handle a second time. The entire time to remove and install took less than five minutes.

I used a phillips head screw driver, however the heads of the screws were not phillips head, they were some other kind of head I have never seen.

Water was running into machine when it was off!!!

Of course the machine was not plugged in & water valves where off. I took water hoses off. Then i took 3 screws off the back of lid & slid lid back & lifted it off. I then unplugged two wires going to valve. I then took water hose going to valve off. Last there is one bolt holding valve to machine & in the mechanic industry we call this bolt a star head, so it was a good thing I had this tool. So if you do this repair you will have to get this tool. This job is easy to do & Part Select was 100% on my order & shipping! I will order again when something brakes again !!! Thank's
