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.

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

Removed softener dispenser from agitator. Removed 1/2" bolt from inside agitator and removed top half of agitator. Removed cog assembly.

Followed written instructions after viewing repair video. Would have been helpful to know how far onto shaft each drive piece needed to be placed. I should have noted old piece placement, though if this was noted in instructions it would have been reassuring to know what is the proper placement. I also placed machine on its back to align the motor and transmission after new parts were installed on each.

Removed agitator cap with flat head screwdriver, then removed inner seal cap and removed worn cogs. Installed new cogs and replaced o-ring seal on cap installed new by and was good to go in under 15 minutes.

Ordered the repair kit and when it arrived a few days later we removed the cylinder for the fabric softener and lifted the screen cap off, used a nut driver to remove the top part of the agitator and then simply removed the old worn parts and replaced with the news. Easy peasy! ;)

We started to get water hammer in the pipes when ever the washer was set to cold? Looked it up here and figured the inlet was about to go out, ordered the part, 2 days later, brand new washer, no more problems. Local repair would have cost us at least $100.00, part was $25.00 shipped, videos are awesome tools, PartsSelect Rules!!!

I followed the instructional video on the part page! I'm normally really awful with tools/handiwork, but the video was very precise with step-by-step instructions, and I was able to do the repair myself with no problem!

I looked at the fine parts blow-up drawing available on internet. It was immediately clear the teeth had worn smooth on the cogs, and replacing them would fix the problem. I placed the order for the three parts sets I felt would be useful, and the most amazing thing happened, The parts arrived the next day, they were all in the package they all fit, and I was washing clothes within and hour. The information on line was understandable and accurate and the speed of delivery was outstanding.

My washer stopped spinning.

I researched the troubleshooting on PartSelect.com and determined the clutch was going out on my direct drive Whirlpool washer. I ordered the part, found the instructional video that actually had my exact washer being worked on, I followed all of the steps of replacing the clutch and in a snap, my washer was spinning. I've worked in apartment maintenance for years and PartsSelect.com has always been my only resource for appliance parts and repairs. The prices are great (I've compared most parts websites and 8 times out of 10, partsselect.com is cheapest), the shipping is extremely fast and the parts are alway right. Great site!!!!
