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

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!
