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

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.

The cap thingy seal broke and splattered fabric softener.

followed the tutorial from partselect--remove fabric softener dispenser(just pull up) remove bolt from agitator and take it off agitator--remove old parts and replace with new ones--reassemble---done.--- took longer to write this almost. Probably saved me 100 dollars. Almost anyone could do this repair if you can read and watch a video.
