Removed the top of the washer by removing 3 screws on the back and sliding the top back and up. Removed the power cord and pipes. Next removed a screw holding the valve in place. Labeled the wires and pulled them off. The hard part was moving the locking tube ring further back on the tube before pulling the inlet tube off the valve. Reattach the black inlet tube and locking ring. I had to keep working it before it was in the right place. Some have mentioned that the hole didn't line up when they installed the valve. It turns out that there is a small slot in the plastic threaded tubes. One needs to wiggle the valve until the sheet metal rear wall fits in. Then the valve can be slid into position. Attach the mounting screw, hoses, top, power cord and try it out.

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.

I opened the top by taking four screws from the back and lifted the top. The part to be replaced was clearly in view. I opened the clamps on the hoses, pulled the hoses off, removed the wires, and reversed the process with the new part. The washer works great now! I ordered the part on a Friday, and it was delivered the next day, even though I didn't pay for overnight!

I have just experienced multiple back-to-back wonderful transactions with PartSelect. Let me explain what happened: I purchased a home that came equipped with a washer/dryer set. After doing laundry for a month or so, the washer started to make a terrible banging sound on spin. I researched the manufacture on the net and I found this failure mode is common for this washer. Without taking the washer apart, I concluded that the bearings and seal had failed. These parts are not sold separately but are available in a larger assembly that costs over $430. However, there are individuals on eBay that offer the bearings and seal as a do-it-yourself repair. I ordered an eBay kit. While I was waiting for the kit to arrive, I took the washer apart and found that the bearings AND shaft had failed. I thought I would need the $430 assembly after all. I studied the PartSelect website, called on Sunday (thank you for being open) and ordered what I thought was the proper assembly. The salesman was very helpful and said the part would be shipped on Monday. On Monday, I received an email that the part had been shipped and was given a tracking number. Just as a double check, I looked up the item number (PS2360951) and realized that was not the part I really needed (PS2367230). I needed to cancel my order and get the other part on the way ASAP. I dreaded calling PartSelect to change the order, thinking I would have to suffer thru verbal abuse. I was surprised to find another pleasant salesman who took my current order number, told me that it had already shipped, that I would have to refuse the delivery and told me how to go about doing so. She then helped me with ordering the correct part ($448) and gave me a new order number. Within minutes of hanging up, I received email about the new order being processed and ready for shipment. I went to the PartSelect website and checked on my old order and found it had already been marked as ‘return pending’. When the part(s) arrived a few days later, in less than 5 hours, I had installed the eBay bearings & seal along with the new shaft and was doing a load of laundry. I shipped out the unwanted part the next day. That was a week ago. Today I received an email saying that the part had been received and my account had been refunded $430. All in all working with PartSelect was a very pleasant experience!

shut off water valves, took out 3 torx screws that hold the top on, slid then top back just a bit and removed, took the hoses off, took the screw out that holds the water valve and lifted the valve up to remove the wires and hose. Put the wires and hose on the new valve and re-installed, connected the hoses and checked for leaks, put the top on called it a day.

Probably a common failure on this design. You have to wait for the 'click' to pull open the door of a stopped washer otherwise you stress the handle which is fragile. Repair was as simple as can be. Remove two torx screws and cracked handle then replace with new. I reused the screws. 5 minutes.
