need a star srew driver to install

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

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.

The knob which turns to select wash cycle options broke and fell off.

I took the knob and made sure the flat portion of the inside surface matched the flat part of the stem it would cover. Then, I just pushed the knob on slowly but firmly enough to just push past the slight resistance I encountered. That was all there was to it.

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

I also took the lower tub hose off and washed, bleached along with hot water to. clean it

The handle is set with two screws (that don't come with the replacement handle so make sure to save them when you take the old handle off). They use the 6 point screwdriver but a regular flathead screwdriver will work - a phillips won't. Take the old screws out, put the new handle on and screw it back in using the old screws. EASY

Disconnect the hot and cold water supply hoses from the rear of the machine. Remove 3 screws in the rear that fasten the top cover. Slide the cover rearward and remove it. Disconnect the black outlet hose and unsnap the two electrical connectors from the water valve. Remove one screw that fastens the water valve to the rear panel. Slide the water valve away from the screw and remove it. Reverse this procedure to install the new valve.

Easy peezy!! Next day delivery, as promised for parts that could not be found anywhere else. I placed the baffles in the washer and clicked them in using both hands one by one. I'm petite and weigh about 110 lbs. The total installation time was less than 2 mins. I was given a $200 quote just for installation but, spent less than $100 and installed myself. Thank you!! I will not wait so long and shop around next time. I'm going straight to partsect.com to save time and money. Although I have to buy new clothes now since my washer put holes in all my clothes. But, the problem is finally solved and I am so grateful.

I am a 70 year female - went online to order the part - it arrived a day later - it was absolutely a breeze to repair - I unscrewed the old cracked handle in about two minutes and screwed the new one in in about 2 minutes or less. It couldn't have been easier. I was so pleased that I saved time and money and I could do it myself. The cost of the part was much less than I would have paid at Whirlpool and my labor was free. Thank you Parts Select for making the part available.
