We got the parts, watched your video a couple of times and then began the repair. It went well with one exception. None of my socket extensions were long enough to work well. The required length might be added to the video and the printed installation instructions. Also it would have nice to have been able to order a small tube of the recommended lubricant. Overall I was very pleased. Jack

Part was for my machine and others (Whirlpool etc). Picture looked identical, but was too short for my machine. I was able to used pieces of the new part to repair the old one and this worked, but could have saved a few bucks if I had ordered the parts I needed to repair the old one.

Easy, If your drive block has an open top, it's worn. Look at a picture of a new drive block and compare. If it doesn't match, then you need a new drive block. Note: Also check the drive clutch and clutch liners or pads...they may be worn. In my case it was the drive block this time. So to start, take off the fabric softenner dispenser in the center of the washer. Then pull out the seal. then remove the bolt. and pull off the agitator assembly. after that tap off the lock nut with a punch and hammer or if you have the special spanner wrench tool, use that. Once removed, pull out the inner tub and then pull the drive block off the shaft. Put the new drive block on and reverse the procedure from there. Tap the lock nut tight with the punch and hammer while re-installing. I'm so glad I did this repair. $15 is so much better than just giving in and buying a new washer!!!

Exactly like the video showed. I took off the softener dispenser, removed the little screen, took out the bolt, pulled out the agitator, placed the worn out dog ears assembly and gasket on little screen, cleaned all the dirty parts (things were kind of dirty in there for being inside a washing machine), then I reassembled it all in reverse order. Works like new.

Unplugged washer. Shut off hot and cold water. Pulled the washer away from the wall slightly to remove the hoses. Once disconnected I pulled the washer out further. Removed the two screws holding faceplate. Then popped the two tabs, allowing the tub cover to be removed. Disconnected the wire connector from the pins, and then removed the tub cover. I was then able to disconnect the water inlet valve. I replaced the water inlet valve, the internal hose and the two clamps. Then did the above in reverse order.

The washer would turn 45° by finish spin

With no broke springs I thought that they might be weak so I ordered them but didn't install them as I found that the basket had a drag at one point of turning it, so I took it down to the clutch and found the nylon arm that released the brake had the small pins broken off. This would cause the brake to not release full enough that the eccentricity in it had a drag spot during the spin causing tremendous vibration. To disassemble I took the transmission off and the basket off and install new clutch assembly with the basket laying horizontal on a table. I did notice that the new clutch only had three pads on the band and the old one had six. I called you back with no satisfaction, but was given the phone # of the manufacturer and they confirmed that theirs had six pads but the part # checked out so I installed it. It now sits basically still during a cycle. I made and supervised the making of parts in a machine shop all my working carrier and I don't understand the weak link of the nylon pins milled / molded on a part that takes a lick from the actuator every cycle. It appears to me it was made to break, but it is about 20 years old. Thanks for your video help on the tube. Fred

machine would knock at the front of the machine on spin
