washer danced around in spin cycle

  • Customer: Donald from Rapid City SD
  • Difficulty: Very Difficult

I would not recommend trying this without the spring removal & re-install tool. Very difficult to impossible to remove the springs with pliers. Not meant for novice handy persons.

Won't Agitate, Won't Spin, Jumping around, squealing in spin cycle, abrupt stop

  • Difficulty: Really easy

  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers, Socket set

Washer was jumping around in the spin cycle to the point that it disengaged the water fill level hose which in turn caused it to overflow. I fixed the hose but almost immediateley it stopped spiining or agitating. I looked online to find that the jumping around was most likely the snubber ring ... the hard stop and squeal most likely the Brake Stator ... the no agitaion or spin was likeley the thrust bearing. I ordered the parts and were received in a couple of days ... by the time they came I had already torn apart everything and was just waiting on parts for reassembly. The instructions were concise and complete but I did benefit from watching a YouTube video on the repair. All the parts went together just like they were supposed to even with my limited mechanical skills. All I really used was a small socket set, a couple of screw drivers and a pair of pliers. Taking the Brake assembply is dangerous but can be done with no special tools if you buy a couple of 2 inch 10-24 screws to replace two of the short ones and then back them out slowly (look for a youtube video on this procedure EASY!) ... took me a couple of hours but any one who has used a screw driver more than once could probably do it in under an hour. Washer now running like new ... No Jumping!!! People at Parts Select were Great!!! BTW ... So that the springs would be easier to re-install, I stuck about $50 of quarteres between the coils before removing ... worked Great!

When I received the replacement part it did not look exactly the same as the one that came off the washer. After watching the video that was sent with the shipment confirmation I very clearly understood it and was able to do repair in about 10 minutes. It was so easy, I wish that there were more repairs to do to take advantage of your wonderful customer service. You have created a customer for life. Thank you

turned off the water, drained the water from the machine, pulled it out and removed the back plate on the machine. disconnected all hoses and belts, then removed part. inserted new pump, 3 self tapping screws later the hosed were attached, then the back plate. worked like a champ after that and saved me at least 200 bucks.

We went on line and found the correct part. It arrived in 3 days. said it might take 7. Husband and son dismantled the old plastic outer tub that had been slit by the screwdriver. Put the new one in, and filled the tub up with water to check for leaks. When the water got to the level of the fill line, it started leaking. We pumped the water out and stopped to wait for daylight. Next day we lifted the top of the machine and filled it again...the line that goes to the water level knob...was off. The woman found the leak and put the hose back on. We were semi worried when we read the reviews, but in the daylight, it really wasn't all that difficult to change out the broken tub.

Took access panel off of back saw that hose had pulled off of tub, thus the rinse water was just running on floor, re attached hose when the rinse cycle finished and the brake stopped the spin it jerked the hose off once again. It had a spring clamp holding it on, so I reinstalled it with a worm/screw clamp, no problems since. Ordered a new hose to have on hand in case. Jim
