Removed the 3 screws that hold the bottom front panel in place. Removed the 3 screws that hold the door latch in place and pulled out on the bottom of the door which wasn't very much and slid the door latch out to get to the wire connections. Connected the wires to the new latch and pulled out bottom again and put the latch back into place and put the 3 screws back in. Note: make sure you unplug the washer so you don't have a chance to get shocked. Level of difficulty was pretty easy.

I had to pull the washer out from the wall. SInce it is in front of the door going out into the garage made it dificult getting tools. I had to lay on my side doubled up in order toget to the hose. I used a bit extention so that I could get the clamp loose. Cut the time in half by using a drill with a phillips head screw bit. The only real hard part was getting the new one up tight on the drain. Used a heavy duty screw driver to push it up so the clamp would bite.

Installed dampners with a little trouble because of location on machine. But turned out not to be the problem. Machine still shakes and move. Looking for for another reason for shaking. Replacing dampners would be a "do it yourself project" for most people.

We followed another very helpful repair story. Unplug machine. Unscrew top back screws, remove top of washer. Reach inside from the top in the front of the machine.

I ordered the pump because we have 3 kids and laundry piles up. The pump was not the issue, because it would drain in rinse, but not during spin... The computer would have been a $330 part. Not sure the issue, but my wife wanted a new dryer so we replaced the washer at the same time. I didn't use the part. The website was really easy to order and it got here fast.

I had noticed the latch on door was split so I ordered the latch, but before I could put it on, the latch on the front of washer was locked. I then looked at the messages from others on this site for help. My daughter and I unscrewed the 2 screws on the top back, removed top, pulled the control panel up, unscrewed the front, unscrewed the 3 screws for latch, pulled old one out. I located the part, ordered it and got it in 2 days! Put new latch in and screwed everything back the way it was and in 15 minutes, the washer is running! (I am a woman too!)

Door latch/lock assembly needed replacement

The washer tech manual stated to: 1) remove the top, 2) control console, 3) front below the door (front load washer), 4) remove the retaining wire, 5) pull back the rubber bellows, 6) remove the three screws and remove the door latch/lock assembly. I discovered that steps 1 through 3 are not required to replace the assembly. Installation is the reverse of steps 4 through 6. That was easy. The difficult part was figuring out how to reset the pressure switch so the drain pump would not start every time you reconnected to the power supply (pressure switch thinks the washer still contains water). With the power disconnected, I disconnected the pressure switch from the central control unit. Then I reconnected the power supply and pressure switch. That reset the pressure switch solved the problem with the drain pump. Washer works fine now.

Ordered new pump from Parts Select. Pump arrived within 2 days. Removed back cover off washer, 2 screws. Took 2 hoses off pump. Removed pump bracket and pump, 3 bolts. Took less than 2 minutes to remove old pump off bracket and replace new pump. Put everything back together and machine works great and water is out of clothes. Price of pump was the lowest I could find and I couldn't be happier with Parts Select quick response and price.

Coins sheared the impeller blades from the pump. I disconnected the power, removed the back panel, with pliers slide the hose clamp off the hose and remove hose...you will drain water from both hoses when removed (if washer is full of water be prepared for it all to drain)remove 2nd hose clamp and hose, with a 1/2 socket remove the 3 mounting bolts, and disconnect the power line from the pump remove old pump from mounting plate. Install new pump in reverse order.
