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.

I went to Google internet search engine to look for a website that would provide an answer to problem with washing machine. After trying out a few websites it became apparent that these sites were not going to give me a fix it solution. With the grace of the gods of IT, finding your website was the answer. Your website quickly identified my model number and opened up a wonderful page which had a complete break down of my washing machine, and I might add with the most likely reported problems from other do-it-yourselfers. The part is prices reasonably, and placing an order was easy. PartSelect’s online instruction for part installation is a reason for becoming the favorite to all do-it-yourself people. Nora

The top section of our agitator wasn't turning properly with the lower section

I looked up the issue, and found a related video on YouTube. We ordered the parts, and I was very happy with their price (about 60% less than Sears) and how quickly they arrived. ...... It should be an easy repair, but our agitator top would not separate as it should have. ...... We look it to a local shop, and they said that sometimes the plastic 'fuses' together during factory assembly. They used wire cutters to snip the fused plastic. ...... After that, the rest of the repair was easy: just take out the broken cogs, and insert the new ones, and re-assemble.

I watched the on line video for installing the repair kit and it was simple! I spent just under $36 and saved $800 buying a new washer. It runs quieter and more efficiently then it has in awhile. PS - I am a woman!

Followed instruction found on line, they were very helpful and very well done by tech. I have a back ground in appliance repair mostly GE. I find the design of whirlpool washing machine was very well done, the repair of all major parts was easy and simple. Best designed washer I have ever worked on. Delivery of my needed parts was fast. I put parts in the machine it really didn't need, felt I could get another 10 years out of the appliance. VERY VERT SATISFIED, THANK YOU

Looked on line at Parts Select, and noted there was 66% chance that problem was in lid switch. Stuck screw driver in slot under lid, pushed on switch and made washer work, verifying that problem was likely in switch. Ordered part. Disconnected washer from electric/water. Removed screws on back and sides of panel; lifted lid and cover; replaced switch; reinstalled cover. Reconnected to elec/water. Worked. No problema.
