I simply watched the video that was on YouTube for this site. It was dead on with my washer and super easy to do. The step by step was just awesome and easy to follow. The repair took just over an hour and I even cleaned the entire inside of this 12 year old washer which was pretty cruddy. The washer now spins great and works like new again. All for about $50. Thanks.

A word to the wise watch the repair video first guys and save an hour or 2 of aggrivation. I saved a couple hundred bucks instead of having the repair guys do it. It was easier than I thought. Machine runs like new again. Thanks Partselect. L.A.B. Rocland, Mass.

Disconnect washer from all connections and slide away from the wall far enough to give clearance where you can tilt the washer and lay on it's back. Remove old pump and replace with new pump, then reconnect washer to wall connections.

Pulled the machine away from the wall about 18 inches. Tip the washer back until resting stably against the wall. Used plies to remove two spring hose clamps. Use the screw driver to remove spring clips. Pulled old pump off and placed new pump on. Replace spring clips and hoses with clamps, and lowered the washer. Done!

the video pretty much told the whole story except I forgot to put the plastic collar piece on the new clutch when I put it back together so I got to do it twice. second time went even easier. Thanks for the video,it was great.

Washer would try to agitate during spin cycle.

  • Customer: Lorin from Arlee, MT
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers, Socket set, Wrench (Adjustable)

Very old washing machine began to make a horrible noise and agitator would attempt to agitate during spin cycle. Eventually determined that the problem was in the transmission. The way the transmission works is that when the motor runs in one direction a metal fork pushes on a cam mechanism and lifts a spring loaded gear on the agitator shaft from the gears that make it move, putting it in neutral so that it can spin freely with the basket in the spin cycle. When the motor runs the other way the same fork pulls on the cam and drops the gear down so that it engages with the agitator mechanism. The problem was that the plastic cam pieces on the base of the shaft had worn down to the point where they where not fully lifting the gear clear and it was partially engaging with the drive mechanism. Repair was relatively straight forward except the YouTube video that I was using showed the parts on upside down. All the other transmission parts are labeled with TOP on one side but oddly the cam pieces are not marked. For reference the U shaped protrusion on the cam parts goes on the top of the assembly, not the bottom. All in all it took me about 12 hours to do this fix, but at least 10 of that was simply trying to figure out how the mechanism worked and tracking down the problem. Be sure to refill the transmission case and use some RTV sealant to seal the cover back on when you are done, just like you would for an oil pan on an engine.

Well i'm an auto technician by trade so I just jumped right in without reading or watching anything, but I saw the video and in the days waiting for the part to show up I watched it. I would recommend everyone to watch the video because it is simpler than I made it.Easy repair any mechanical skills at all and you shouldnt ave any trouble.

Found input to gearcase deformed, so new coupler slipped under load. Replaced gearbox. All function restored, but machine banged harshly during spin. Discovered that "skid plate" had shifted during gearbox replacement. Remounted skid plate carefully with pry bar, correcting vibration.

I pulled up PartSelect, compared their advice with my problem, ordered a direct drive motor coupling for my particular model, received the delivery, and called a friend who's good at home repairs and who happens to be dating my sister. He was delighted to comply with our request (her clothes get laundered here) and he had no problem with either the repair itself or the part we ordered. Replaced the hoses, too. He said the new part had been improved over the old one, but everything fit together just like it should. Then I washed her work jeans. Success! I know this isn't what you're asking, but I was so pleased to have the correct part ready to go so he didn't have to mess around. It wouldn't have taken the afternoon, but I had to clean everything that had accumulated debris in 10 years of use as he went.

Found this web site after reading forums on slow spins and I determined it was a clutch problem. Ordered the clutch from "Part Select", watched the 19 minute video (excellent) on changing out a clutch from this website. After 1.5 day delivery, I installed per video. Very pleased, thank you; Dave

I was very happy the part arrived very fast and just what we needed, and service was super.. We took the old pump off slipped the new one into the slot and hooked the clips back on it and tighted it up and plug the washer back in and filled with water and it drained... We started doing laundry right away, and so far so good... Tired to leave a review but it won't let us into the site, but we would use the same company to order from again, thank you so much...

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..
