I followed the guy on the video. The only parts that were tough was having the right tools and having enough space to put the new part in. The part was only 70 dollars and I was so proud that I could do it. I am not very handy so if I can do it then anyone can. Plus I saved some money!

Removed the top of the washer by removing 3 screws on the back and sliding the top back and up. Removed the power cord and pipes. Next removed a screw holding the valve in place. Labeled the wires and pulled them off. The hard part was moving the locking tube ring further back on the tube before pulling the inlet tube off the valve. Reattach the black inlet tube and locking ring. I had to keep working it before it was in the right place. Some have mentioned that the hole didn't line up when they installed the valve. It turns out that there is a small slot in the plastic threaded tubes. One needs to wiggle the valve until the sheet metal rear wall fits in. Then the valve can be slid into position. Attach the mounting screw, hoses, top, power cord and try it out.

I unscrewed the three small sheet-metal screws holding the washer top to the frame and slid the top aft and laid it on the floor. Then I took fine sandpaper and cleaned the plug contacts from the various components connected to the main control board. After five years or so I have found that most copper connectors will corrode and prevent electricity from flowing properly. That did not correct the problem. I checked the flow control device and it appeared clear and not binding. Then I pulled the drain pump filter and it was clear. I could hear the water pump running and the water flowing out the normal rubber hose. But the washer would stop three or four times during a wash cycle. Pressing 'RESET" and "START" would start the washer again. At the end of the cycle my wife noticed there was water in the washer tub. It had to come in via the water control valve. This is the valve you screw the hot and cold water hose into. It is a ice blue color and held in by one screw. I unscrewed the two hoses and removed the one screw. Then I had to slip the black supply hose from the valve leading to the flow meter. I disconnected the four electrical connectors and installed the new valve and found the screw hole did not align with the screw hole in the washer frame. I used a eighth-inch metal drill and drilled a new hole which lengthened the slot that the mounting screw normally went through. After I re-connected the hot and cold water lines to the valve I turned the water back on and put the top back on the washer. The washer worked like new. No stops. I did notice before changing the valve the water would flow into the washer tub like beer coming from a tap. After installing the new valve the water flowed in at three times the rate like a garden hose.

I was having the hf code constantly beeping and couldn't run a full cycle.

I opened the top by taking four screws from the back and lifted the top. The part to be replaced was clearly in view. I opened the clamps on the hoses, pulled the hoses off, removed the wires, and reversed the process with the new part. The washer works great now! I ordered the part on a Friday, and it was delivered the next day, even though I didn't pay for overnight!

I have just experienced multiple back-to-back wonderful transactions with PartSelect. Let me explain what happened: I purchased a home that came equipped with a washer/dryer set. After doing laundry for a month or so, the washer started to make a terrible banging sound on spin. I researched the manufacture on the net and I found this failure mode is common for this washer. Without taking the washer apart, I concluded that the bearings and seal had failed. These parts are not sold separately but are available in a larger assembly that costs over $430. However, there are individuals on eBay that offer the bearings and seal as a do-it-yourself repair. I ordered an eBay kit. While I was waiting for the kit to arrive, I took the washer apart and found that the bearings AND shaft had failed. I thought I would need the $430 assembly after all. I studied the PartSelect website, called on Sunday (thank you for being open) and ordered what I thought was the proper assembly. The salesman was very helpful and said the part would be shipped on Monday. On Monday, I received an email that the part had been shipped and was given a tracking number. Just as a double check, I looked up the item number (PS2360951) and realized that was not the part I really needed (PS2367230). I needed to cancel my order and get the other part on the way ASAP. I dreaded calling PartSelect to change the order, thinking I would have to suffer thru verbal abuse. I was surprised to find another pleasant salesman who took my current order number, told me that it had already shipped, that I would have to refuse the delivery and told me how to go about doing so. She then helped me with ordering the correct part ($448) and gave me a new order number. Within minutes of hanging up, I received email about the new order being processed and ready for shipment. I went to the PartSelect website and checked on my old order and found it had already been marked as ‘return pending’. When the part(s) arrived a few days later, in less than 5 hours, I had installed the eBay bearings & seal along with the new shaft and was doing a load of laundry. I shipped out the unwanted part the next day. That was a week ago. Today I received an email saying that the part had been received and my account had been refunded $430. All in all working with PartSelect was a very pleasant experience!

Took the front panel below tub and above pedestal off washer. Removed pump and found coins in the strainer. Removed them thinking they may be causing the problem. Put everything back together and tried again. Washer still wouldn't drain. Unplugged it and ordered a new pump. Installed pump after removing the plug and draining water from washer. Replaced pump with new one and washer works like new.

Part was $150 and the going rate to replace the pump by a repair person is $300=$450. This was super easy and took about 15 minutes, including draining the old pump with my wet vac!! I messed around witht he old one trying to clean it, etc for several weeks because I'm cheap and didn't want to spend the $150. SPEND THE MONEY AND DO IT YOURSELF.

(1) Turn off water valves (2) remove water lines (3) remove three metric star screws from top/back of washer (4) remove to plate (5) remove single screw retaining water inlet valve at back of washer (6) remove electrical connections from water inlet valve and flow meter (7) loosen hose clamps at back of soap dispenser (8) remove assembly/apply new parts (9) reverse above directions. Because the plastic nipple at the back of the soap dispenser was brittle, it partially broke on me. I applied urethane glue to the break and let it dry overnight. Next day I applied marine-grade silicone sealant around the break area. That evening I assembled and then used the washer to test for leaks. Success!

F/H error

I had replaced the flowmeter, but that didn't solve the problem, so I ordered the hot/cold solenoid fill part. Other than ONE screw that was unique -- the back retaining screws were nut driver screws, the one retaining screw was a torx which, of course, couldn't be seen unless you pulled the washer all the way out. Unscrewed that, unhooked the hose clamp with pliers and worried the hose off, removed the four electrical connections (which were TIGHT) and replaced the part. Turned on the water and was dismayed to get a d/l error code. After some colorful language learned from my drill sergeant 40 years ago, I realized that was "door lock" and closed the door tightly. Ran great and the Mrs. thinks I'm a hero.

I replaced the flow meter but that want it, so replaced the water inlet valve and that cured what ailed it. The only pain was that the single screw that holds the part to the washer is a torx rather than a nut like the rest of the back screws. Couldn't see it without pulling the washer all the way out. Hose clamp came off with pliers and the electrical connectors were TIGHT but came off with some effort. Replaced everything and error cleared ok.
