Watched videos on how to replace the hose. Armed with the information I started the process. But the videos were wrong. After removing a bunch of screws and not getting to the hose I removed the inspection panel on the rear,three screws and there was the hose.simple. I wished I had not watched the videos.

First thing was to go to PartSelect website to see what others with the same problem did to solve their problem. It was 45% pump and a lot less for the belt. My belt is only a year old so that was out. I ordered my new pump and watched the video on PartSelect a couple of times. I didn't bother to disconnect the water and drain lines. I had my wife hold a plastic 2 quart container under the pump when I pulled the small hose off and didn't spill a drop. Like the man on the video said...the new pump isn't identical but it fits and works fine. Thankx PartSelect!

Took the front panel off the washer with a screwdriver, tilted the washer back and propped it up with a paint can, unscrewed 2 nuts & bolts, disconnected the electric to the motor and lifted out, put the new motor in place & secured it with the nuts & bolts, reconnected the electric and re-installed the front panel of the machine and I was done.

I replaced the water level switch by taking loose the five screws on the back of the control panel, The clamp on the clear hose, and the two screws which went through the Wtr. lvl. switch. I also moved the wires from the old switch to the new, one at a time. This didn't fix my problem so i replaced the Water valve on the bottom-rear of the machine by removing the screw, the two hoses and the four wires. I removed these one at a time, moving the wires directly from the old valve and attaching them to the new valve.This fixed my problem good as new.

Washer stopped full of water. Awful sound upon restart.

Sure enough, it was the Drain Pump. Replacing the drain pump itself was a piece of cake, even though mine was located at the BACK of the unit, bot the front like the instructional video. The tough (or at least time consuming) process was emptying the washer of all the standing water before the problem could be properly diagnosed and the repair completed. Needless to say, a ShopVac was the solution for the main tub, although there is still a bunch of water left under the main tub, in the hoses and even in the broken Drain Pump. Have lots of towels and a small bucket on hand - and someone to help empty the bucket while you're crouched behind the washer by the wall! :) Other than that, replacing the actual part is easy, and replacing the belt is easier once the new working (rotating) drain pump is in place.

Easy to replace. Just wish they would have suggested to order the screw as well at the same time.

machine spin cycle not working

placed washer on front exposing bottom of machine. removed clip holding pulley in place with needle nose pliers. The old parts slid off transmission shaft easily. I set these aside in order of removal. The replacement parts were not exact matches to OEM parts replacement bearing was heavier duty and thicker there were washers in the kit that would not even slid onto transmission shaft,replacement pulley and cam were exact replacements for OEM. I replaced the bearing and thrust washer and then used a combination of new and old washers to build the assembly back to the original length so the retaining clip would hold assembly firmly in place.The instructions key point was that the final height had to bring the pulley back to the original height for a snug fit with retaining clip. Once I realized this the extra parts in the kit were less worrisome.
