Watched the video and it was very straight forward, very easy and time saving. I just wish the delivery time for the part was that fast (It was a quick delivery).

Determined based on some Internet searches that the part that we needed was the motor coupling; washer would not spin or agitate. Once I figured out how to removed the cover (by the way, one of the guys at an appliance store told me how to do it), and reviewing the video on your website, I removed the two screws and four clips, dropped the motor, inserted the parts and put it back together - all in about 15 or 20 minutes. It was easy and clean and the washer worked again. Hopefully go for another 5-10 years. Thanks.

Intermittently the spin cycle would not empty the tub fully

First off, let me say two things, this was my very first washer repair and the installation video was excellent.

Few things though ..... The first thing I noticed was the old parts I removed did not look that bad to me. I was starting to wonder if I was wasting my time. However, its apart now I'll continue on. I had a hard time properly seating the new couplings on either end correctly. They were VERY snug. What I ended up doing was getting a 20mm deep socket that fit perfectly onto the coupling and with a hammer gently, (and I underline gently) tapped the new parts into place. That fixed that problem. I also had some minor difficulty putting the cabinet back together, but nothing earth shattering. The cabinet fits on top of the frame, not under. And lastly, the small clips that hold the console on were not very reusable afterwards so I'll need to order a new set of them sometime.

All-in-all it was a fun repair that didn't take me too long and I saved quite a bit. I definitely would do it again if necessary. I've done about 5 loads of laundry since and everything seems to be working great so far.

Pumps but won't spin, leaks, top of agitator doesn't move

  • Customer: Kenneth from Talbott TN
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

My repair was successful but was not as easy as some have reported. I needed to replace the coupler, but when I tried to remove the pump from the motor, the shaft was rusted and wouldn't budge. I pried and wiggled and used WD-40 to no avail. I ended up taking off the motor and pump as a unit. After replacing the coupler and reassembling the washer, the water pump leaked, probably as a result of all of the prying. To get the water pump off, I had to cut it into pieces, using a hack saw. Even when I got down to the end, I had to peel pieces of plastic off of the rusted shaft. I then had to file and sand the shaft to get it so that it would fit into the new pump. After putting the washer together again and running it through its cycles, I noticed that the top half of the agitator was not turning. I then ordered and installed the agitator repair kit. Through all of this, my orders were all correct and arrived in amazingly fast times. The videos were all very helpful. Even though it was a trial a times, I still saved a pile of money.

followed repair instruction,( bought on line and down loaded ) some instructions were unclear but when you have the machine apart its obvious. your parts breakdown helped more than the instructions once the cabinet was opened.

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.

Hanger on motor broke and destroyed the coupling

Turned machine on it’s back after removing the hose that goes to the drain, removed the bottom dust guard, I removed the hoses (take a picture before removing things so you know how to orient them when putting it back together) and drained the water first but this is not necessary (there are YouTube videos where they suggest removing the outer case, unclipping the pump and then removing the motor. This would be optimal as you don't need to deal with the water running out of the washer when you remove the hoses). Removed the 4 electrical connectors (multi-plug, 1 x two prong plug and 2 capacitor connector plugs) One of the motor hangers were broken on my machine, I removed the other one and then slipped the motor out. Removed the broken hanger and securing screws and the old rubber grommets, slipped the coupling out (had to leverage out with a large flat screwdriver). Installed new coupling and rubber on the gearbox side, 4 grommets on the motor and the other coupling on the motor. Inserted the hangers on the gearbox side and then mounted the motor. (it is easier if you turn the washer on its back so the drum moves down and gives you more room to drop the motor in from the top), clipped the motor hangers on and fastened the two metal screws, mounted the pump and hoses and reinstalled the dust guard. Turned it right side up and tested before dragging it back into the laundry. Washing again like it did when first bought it in 1998. I would recommend that when a coupling brakes, replace it as well as the hangers and grommets to make sure it has no room for play. Mine broke way too quick as I did the last coupling about a year ago, problem I think was that I had the wrong grommets causing excessive vibration and wear.

washer wouldn't go into spin cycle; water would be pumped out.

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 video they provide was very easy to follow. The only difference from mines and the video they provided was the top portion. Mines was held by two Phillips screws on the switch housing. The top pulls forward. Everything else went accordingly. Take off switch plugs, take off washer cover, unplug the vacuum line, replace coupler and reinstall. Only thing that took up time was getting water off the floor when I pulled the vacuum line. Use a bucket or do it outside.
