The washer failed while I was doing laundry. The first load completed it's cycle and the buzzer sounded. The clothes were very wet indicating that the final spin did not occur. I started the second load and the pump filled the tub but agitation didn't begin. The motor could be heard running freely (

After determining which parts seemed to have failed and locating them on the PartSelect website, I watched the excellent installation video and read some of the customer notes on their repair experiences. I then followed those examples. One thing was different for me. The shaft bushings on the new coupling parts were a tight press fit on the motor and transmission shafts and could not be pushed completely into place with my fingers. After starting them with my fingers I used a 3/4" wooden dowel and light mallet to gently tap the parts the rest of the way on. If this happens to you, be careful to keep the dowel centered directly on the metal bushing and avoid putting pressure on the white plastic(?)coupling body. The washer works like new again.

I watched the video on the page with the parts I ordered. The machines were not the same, but the principle was the same. Did as instructed, except for being creative with the tools on hand. It all made sense by the time I got it apart.

I watched the Video Twice and really this was an Easy Repair. The Clutch Assembly was Worn. Another thing was that one of the Mounting Bolts that holds the Transmission in Place was never Installed at the factory. This is very critical. This washing Machine always was kind of Noisy, but not no more. It Spins the water out of the clothes now and the Machine is alot quieter. At least a $600.00 Savings.

WATCH THE VIDEOS FIRST!!! I replaced the motor coupling and the agitator cam. I made it much harder than it had to be. My advice to any novice...watch the videos FIRST! I disconnected the drain and fill hoses then I took the back off of the washer only to find the motor in the front so I took off the cabinet. Then I took off the pump and the pump hoses (not needed). I released the motor and found the coupling. It was wasted, as suspect. I ordered parts. Then I took apart the agitator and discovered nasty old dogs. I ordered more parts. THEN, I discovered the videos and began to download them. I live way out in the country and my internet is about the speed of dial up so this is no easy feat. At this point I have washer parts all over my kitchen and new parts on the way (that is another whole story, FedEx has a hard time out here). After watching the videos I knew I had done WAY too much work but nevertheless I was determined to at least get the new parts on and all the pieces put back where they came from. I began putting the agitator together first and that was relatively easy except for the missing grease. The next day the coupling arrived and I was able to get it on (now that I knew to lay the machine down it was much easier to work on (instead of laying in the floor)! By Thursday night (I started this on Monday) I had everything reconnected and did a trial run. OH MY! Everything went well until the spin, then the noise started and the burning smell was not pleasant at all. I unplugged it and went back online the next morning to research this new experience. I found someone else who had made my mistake, you MUST force the couplings onto the shaft of the transmission and motor until it is flush with each shaft or you will get noise and burning odor. I took the cabinet off and re-worked the coupling, put it all back together (this time it really did only take about 1 1/2 - 2 hours). SUCCESS! My 20 year old machine works better than it has in the last 2 years. WATCH THE VIDEOS FIRST!!!

I used your website to trouble shootWatched the repair video. Took the washer apart, ordered the part and followed the directions/video. It was so easy! The washer is working great and I saved myself about 200.00

The washer wouldn't spin unless it got a little help in starting.

I completed the repair EXACTLY as shown in the YouTube video. I went Googling for some ideas when I came upon the PartSelect video which showed the repair being completed on the EXACT make and model of my unit. Screw Sears, which listed the repair as 'difficult'; it was easy! Nothing like seeing it done before attempting it. I am very pleased with both the product and the help!

Watched a youtube video first. Thats where I saw the ad for Part Select. It didn't go as smooth for me as it did for the guy in the video. Mine was rusty but a little oil spray a hammer and screw driver got it done. I'm glad your site has pictures of the parts. It helped me get the right part the first time.

It was very easy. The instructions were very helpful. My husband had taken the agitator apart before we orded the repair kit and discovered that the clogs were worn. What would of been more helpful that when we ordered the kit that it could of told us the little bit of agitator grease was going to be needed. Instead it said it after we recieved the kit that we needed the grease.
