Easy as pie but had to cut one with hack saw to remove as it would not unscrew. Rust was the problem. Hack saw was the cure. Otherwise repair would have taken 5 minutes Washer now works as it did as a new appliance.

Washer was making a banging noise and not spinning properly and emptying the tub.

I replaced the brake spring(not really necessary) and the snubber ring.I also installed a new thrust bearing kit,but the problem turned out to be a bad transmission.I found a good working used one at a local junk yard and so far it is working great.Your how to videos were very helpful in getting the job done properly.Thanks very much!

Used Putty Knife to release a tab on left split of cover/lid assembly lifting up slightly to release the tab, then I repeated the same on the right side. With the belt already flung off of the unit, I saw the 2 screws inside left/right top corners holding the front cover On. I tilted it forward and up and released from two clips on the bottom of the unit. With the front cover removed I saw the pump on the lower right side of the tank. 3 screws and 2 hoses hold the pump in place. Once pump was removed reversed how it was taken apart.

I followed the directions online, but they don't talk about two difficulties with this model. The first is removing the drive belt. This is CRUCIAL! Tilt the dryer backwards, and remove the belt from the pulleys. When putting it back on, when the repair is complete put it on the two smaller pulleys first, and then the large pulley. The other difficulty that is not addressed with this model is accessing the suspension springs. If you choose not to remove the entire housing, I would use a wooden block (2x4 works great) to act as a lever for the vicegrips. I may be weak, but I have a bruised forearm that would have been avoided if I had thought of the wooden block earlier.

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.

Washer would stop in the midst of a cycle and have to be reset.The belt was more than likely old and stretched and was not engaging properly.

Tilted the washer as described in the "video".I was able to "balance" the washer with one hand and remove and install the belt with my other hand. The whole process took less than five minutes.It was just a matter of turning the pulley and "pushing " the belt on with my hand.The washer works great.Trust me, I've NEVER had anything go easier than this installation in my life.Thanks for a great video, and getting the correct part out as quickly as you did.

1. Turn water supply faucets to off. 2) disconnect hoses from washer and unplug from wall outlet. 3) take drain hose from discharge drain. 4) pull washer out and away fro wall, tilt with back of washer facing you. See belt and pulley wheels beneath. 5) turn pulley with hands, listen for screeching. Remove the belt. (6)remove access plate on the back of washer. See drain pump. Loosen the clamps on hoses and pull the hoses off the pump. 7) remove the three screws holding pump, lift pump out. Installation is reverse order of removal? Do not pry belt on, pull the brake pulley little and turn the drum pulley and it will slide on.. You do not want to bend or brake the pulley wheels.

Tilted washer backward and simply took old belt off and replaced with new by wrapping smaller pulley's first and larger pulley last. Next was a simple replacement of pump through back panel of washer. Washer is now quite and spins clothes more efficiently and reduces dryer times.

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 !

Reinstalled the belt, and 8. Fretted as the first load of clothes were washed...

Washer was noisier than usual, after a while could smell something getting hot, and then the machine stopped working. After a while it would start again but not for long.

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).
