Disconnected power. Disconnected hot and cold, and drain hoses and placed in a plastic bucket. Pulled cover off the washer. Tilted washer onto its back. Removed 2 clips holding the pump. Disconnected wire harness from motor and removed 2 clips holding motor starting with lower clip. Removed a screw from the upper clip used for shipping. Set motor aside and removed broken pieces of the motor coupler from motor and transmission. The replacement part had a metal sleeve in the center of each white plastic ring. The old part did not. This required tapping the new ring onto both the motor and transmission shafts with a socket and makes for a tight fit. Reversed the process to put everything back together. Some alignment might be necessary to place motor to transmission. I recomment wearing thin work gloves to avoid nicks from sharp edges. I didn't. Washer is spinning again and sounds a lot better.

The motor would hum but would not agitate or spin. Followed the PartSelect instructions on removing the cover. From other instructions I found out the start capacitor was bad. Very easy repair. Also replaced the clutch because the spin cycle would not begin without spinning it manually. FYI PartSelect had the lowest priced parts and were delivered next day with free shipping.

I did the job all by myself. Even though I paid with my husbands card and you think he did the repair, I did it! I watched the video and it could not have been easier. I surprised my husband and he was very proud. He would have bought a new washer but there was nothing wrong with this one. Two screws and two nuts. unplug the old one and plug in the new one. The clips were my hardest part but not overwhelming. Thanks so much.

Watched video, did the repair when part arrived, took less then 30 mins, I removed the broken switch before the part got here, then I installed new switch when it arrived and it works great, second time I order from parts select and saved hundreds of dollars buy doing the repair myself.

Did not agitate, made ratcheting-clicking noise

Pretty much followed repair video. The parts were wrong except the four dogs and rubber seal that went around the softener cap. After unplugginh the machine before starting work and removing the agitator per video, I had to put agitator on the ground, stand on both sides of the base and pulled it apart. The new cam was way too tall so I removed the bearing gently with a screwdriver removed the old cam dogs, put new ones in and seated the bearing to hold the dogs in. I than put agitator grease on. It would be nice if the 5 milligrams of grease that cost about 10 cents but can only find in a tube for 5 dollars was included with the kit. I now have enough grease to do a thousand agitators. Anyway, I reassembled per video replacing the cap seal and tested the unit. It is important to plug machine back in, because it was unplugged BEFORE working on it. It works like new. It is a very simple repair and cost about $20 instead of the $75 just to get someone to look at it plus cost of parts and labor.

Took the cabinet apart really easily with Part Selects helpful video. Removed old suspension springs by removing outer brackets on two of them and by using pliers on the third one. The tub spring was totally missing. Put on two new brackets and springs with the nut driver. Then stretched the third spring into place. Replaced the tub spring by stretching into place and then put cabinet back together. All done very quickly!!! Now it works perfectly and runs very quietly.

Well I replace the inlet valve an it was to replace. But that solve only the leaking part. I still have no rinse. I don't know what to do next.

Top of agitator was free to rotate in either direction and did not work properly.

The top of the agitator pops out and leaves the fastener(a 17mm bolt) open at the bottom of a 6 inch or so opening in the top piece. That bolt comes out with a socket extension and the top comes off. Replacing the dogs is just a case of sliding a retainer ring down, removing the broken dog pieces and replacing with new dogs. Reverse the disassembly process to reassemble the unit. Now, it works great.

followed the video on the web site and repair was amazingly easy. I have two of these machines, and this same part went bad about 1 1/2 year ago, so this time i was ready for everything. Took everything apart, got rid of old broken part, replaced with new, and Bam, washer back up and running, less than 30 minutes, I am limited on space in my basement, so i didn't turn machine on its back, i did it in the upright position, just utilized some wood blocks to hold the motor during part change, and a hand spring clamp to hold pump and hoses out of my way after removing the clips that hold it on. It's not rocket science, if i can do it so can you. Good luck
