Installed new clutch assembly and while I was at it replaced the Motor Coupling. Actually, I had a good time doing the repair. I am almost 80 years old, so had to have help laying the washer on backside. Got a small stool from which to work (back problems). The only thing I found the least bit difficult was reinstalling the retaining clip for the clutch assembly. The rest was a piece of cake. Were I to do the same repair now, it would take less than 30 minutes. Washer works like new now. Very proud of what I was able to accomplish. Of course, need to watch the repair video so you will know where to start.

After finding out the tub would not spin, I removed the washer to find broken pieces on the floor. I did a google search on my model number and found that the problem was the direct drive motor coupling (it matched the pieces on the floor). So, I watched the "how to" video and I followed the steps verbatim. I found the coupler missing and the plastic pieces on the drive broken. My order came in quickly (within 48 hours) and my washer was running in 20 minutes after receiving the package. It has been great ever since.

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).

The video installation instruction was clear and very easy to follow. However, after installing the parts and started testing the washer, the water overflowed. It looks like the water level sensor wasn't working. It caused a little flooding in the area where the washer is. I took the control panel apart once more and this time diagnosed the water level sensor and analyzed how it works. After spending almost 45 minutes with, I detached the hose attachment and blew air which caused air bubbles in the inner side of the drum. I bent the hose to hold the air while re-attaching same to the sensor. This fixed the problem and the washer is once more, operating normally. Please include this part to your video instruction. Overall, it took me 8 hours on the project including the cleanup due to overflow.

First of all I must say thanks guys for your help, the instructions were right on the money. I first replaced the clutch as per the instructions but found out that the problem was the motor coupling ........ It was broken.
