i pulled the casing from machine....undid motor bracket bolts....disconnected electrical connector and removed motor w mounting bracket still attached. i switched out springs....very simple...returned motor back to machine and attached....then leaned washer back and put new belt on. machine would work for 2 min and the shut off due to motor over heating...once again i tilted machine and was able to tighten bolts where motor attaches to pivot bracket keeping pulley from pivoting to far and causing strain on the motor and thus making it overheat and stop...several loads run without any trouble.....$28.00 washer repair is much better than having to buy a new one...especially in economic times like these... your website was very helpful, fair priced, and delivered my parts in a timely fashion.....ty

After some quick internet research I figured the snubber ring needed replacing. I watched a couple of videos on how to replace which was very helpful and I basically followed them to remove the tub and internals. A couple of notes- 1. to get to all of the springs really requires accesss from the back of the machine. 2. there is only one snubber ring, the schematics make it seem like there are two. 3. most importantly, the videos made the spring removal and installation seem difficult. Have someone tip the tub in the direction of the spring you are working on to relax it some. Also if you use your pliers with a fulcrum to pull tension on the spring you don't need the special tool or run the risk of slipping and driving the pliers into the tub. I used my free hand under my gripping hand, a small block would work too. If the pliers slip it only moves a short distance until the plier grips hit the floor - no damage. 4. don't forget the cornstarch on the cone for the snubber ring. 5. the drive assembly has a warning on it about 200 lbs of tension, don't let the screws to loosen the snubber ring come free from the ring they are screwed into - always keep the screws engaged.

Leak under barrel drum+ loud during spins

I saw that it was leaking under barrel after removing front panel .So I ordered tub seal and bearing kit plus basket and tub gaskets , not knowing that the seal and bearing kit comes with both gaskets, so do not order extra gaskets . So if the leak is above the transmission , I would recommend the seal and bearing kit!!+++ it is smooth and quiet now !

Noise - Unit would also shut down by itself

At first, we ordered the drive belt, which was a little worn down. But it did not resolve the problem. Looking deeper we noticed the metal inside the water pump pulley was torn a little. So we ordered it. Received it a couple of days later, and replaced. It took about 30 mins. Now it's working like new.

The washer was not expelling water

I am pretty much a novice at appliance repair but am curious enough to investigate and try to save some money. I found what appeared to be the worn part but even being unsure I ordered it. It turned out it was the right part and after installing it I reassembled the washer with no spare parts left over. During a test run it was discovered that the washer drain was partially plugged. I left the drain to the professional and after that all was fine. If it ain't one thing it's three.

Washer was making a clicking sound during wash and spin cycles.

Unplug the power cord and hoses. Pull washer away from the wall, tilt it backwards, reach under the washer and remove the belt.The motor has a spring loaded pulley which allows slack to roll the belt off. Turn the washer to the back is faceing you. There is a small panel with four screws in the lower left corner, take them out and remove the panel. Then you will see the drain pump. Remove the two hoses, the three screws holding the pump assembly. Remove the bad pump, and install a new one. Assemble every thing in reverse order, and sart washing.

It was very easy. Through the access panel in the back, remove both hoses, take out three screws with 3/8ths socket, remove pump being mindful of the belt and pulley, re-set the pump with belt in place, put the three screws back in, re-connect the hoses, and done ! 10-15 minute job at the most. There will be some residual water in the pump when removed.

Tilted the machine to remove the belt. The removed the rear access panel, disconnected the hoses and using the socket set with an extension removed the existing water pump. Put the new one in, reconnected the hoses and put the access panel back on. Much easier than I thought it would be! Now the machine is as quiet as the day we bought it!

I thought the noise was the thrust bearing. Replaced it but didn't fix. Washer worked but hstill had terrible noise. Went shopping for new washer - then pump locked up. I siphoned out the water (good idea) and folled ditections I found on this site. 1. pryed up top with screwdriver. Raised lid. 2. Removed the 2 front panel screws with a nutdriver. 3.Removed hose clamps from pump with pliers. 4. Removed 3 screws holding pump. 5.Replaced pump in reverse order. 6. Crossed fingers - it works fine - saved $800.00

Broken hinge on the lid

Exactly like the video told me to! Seriously, I watched once when I ordered the parts, watched it again just before I started the job, and played each step as I completed that step. It simply could not have been easier. Without the video, I doubt I could have located and released the latches on the top of the washer, but seeing not only where he put the knife but the motion he used to spring them made that step so much easier than I thought it would be. With your help, I only paid a quarter of what the repairman wanted to make this simple fix -- Thank you!
