Washer was not spinning clothes on 1st spin

After researching possible failure modes and reviewing a video for teardown/access from the control panel and access top down I noticed a lot of 'break dust' on top of the transmission. Shorting out the lid switch and putting my little finger on the drum, it would not spin but the clutch was spinning fine. I ordered a new clutch... Interesting thing when I was taking the clutch out... the gear it was attached to slid right off! After figuring out it was too big to go 'back' into the transmission and reviewing the parts explosion diagram... it BELONGED INSIDE THE TRANSMISSION! So I took the transmission cover off, poured out out the black-ish oil with metal filings in it, put the gear inside, filled it back up with 10W30, put the lid on, added the new clutch while it was apart and finished reassembly. Wow! It spins much better than when it was new. I guess never assume what can happen on an assembly line. Thanks for the great site.

I did a you tube search for "no cold water in washer" and found a video for what the fix is. Afte disconecting the power and water hoses it was Unbelievable how easy it was. Two screws in the back to open it up which I watch on a you tube video which was from part select. Then two spring clamps to open the inside and expose the water valve.. One screw and a hose clip and the valve was out. Did the reverse and put it back together..

The training video you supplied was right on. I watched it twice to make sure I understood the procedure. I followed the steps outlined in the video and encountered no surprises. The replacement valve was a perfect match and functioned perfectly after installation. I checked other sources for the price of the replacement part. Your price was more than competative. Thank you for a fine service.

I installed the inlet valve, and it still overflowed. Then I connected the plastic hose from the water level sensor that had came off, to the water level selector and it worked fine

I watched the video provided on-line when I ordered the part. When the part arrived, I did just what the video showed to do. The mounting bracket was a little different style than what I took off, but holes lined up for the screws. I didn't have much space to do the work, such as tipping the outside body of the washer forward to get to the back panel, but after wrestling with it a short time I managed to get it opened enough to make the swap of the inlet valve. Hooked everything back up, turned on, checked for leaks, and it was a perfect repair. And a woman at that...

Washing machine squealed as it filled very slowly

  • Difficulty: Easy

Our washing machine "squealed" as it filled. Only the hot water did it, the cold water did not. The hot water came in real slowly, and the machine made a squealing noice and the hose going into the fill valve would vibrate. When I ordered the part, on my order confirmation email there was a link to a video showing how to replace the fill valve. It literally took my less than 30 minutes to replace the part. The only thing that was different on my machine was the screws holding the controls on. Mine were hidden under a plastic cover on the front that I had to snap off. Other than that slight difference in screw location, everything in the video matched up perfect with my machine. With the new fill valve the machine fills in 1/2 the time. We hadn't really noticed how slow it was filling until the squealing noise started. After changing the valve, the difference in fill rate was very apparent. I'm sure the 15 year old valve was full of sediment and minerals. Works like new now.

I watched the video once, ordered the part, watched it again when the part arrived, went downstairs and made the repair. The video was exactly correct! Hardest part was getting the washer case back in place, and that just took a few minutes. Excellent video!! I will check back here the next time I have a repair to make!! Thanks so much.

No hot water through inlet valve

Taking the washer apart was no problem. I just looked on the Internet for a few tips. When removing the valve there was a little water leakage which could not be prevented. When replacing the valve it was not an exact match so I had to install the included bracket. The hard part was reinstalling the washer frame. You have to get both sides lined up to it on the bottom frame. That part would have been easier with another person. After finishing everything worked fine.

move machine away from wall---shut off water and remove hoses--loosen screws that hold valve on back wall---remove toplid, place to side--diconnect water line at tub----disconnect wires to valve,hot/cold---remove old valve with hose attached---take new valve and place new mount bracket on, little tricky did not line up at first must force plate to slid into plastic slot so screw hold lines up, without breaking new valve---once bracket on replaced all---used tape on inlet valves thread when supply hoses replaced--seems shorter than old valve--but tighten up OK no leaks
