I researched the troubleshooting on PartSelect.com and determined the clutch was going out on my direct drive Whirlpool washer. I ordered the part, found the instructional video that actually had my exact washer being worked on, I followed all of the steps of replacing the clutch and in a snap, my washer was spinning. I've worked in apartment maintenance for years and PartsSelect.com has always been my only resource for appliance parts and repairs. The prices are great (I've compared most parts websites and 8 times out of 10, partsselect.com is cheapest), the shipping is extremely fast and the parts are alway right. Great site!!!!

Leaned the washer back to get at the bottom, removed the water holes, removed the water pump, removed the motor, replaced the direct drive motor coupling. Put it back together and it's all good. No clutch or drive problems. Simple fix.

Tub will not spin, agitator does not work. Already replaced the drive coupling

I generally followed the video. Disconnected the water hoses, removed the front, laid the washer on its back. My water pump is rusted onto the motor shaft so I left it in place. I removed the water pipes from the pump then removed the pump/motor/gearbox as one unit. Watch out for more water than you think being released from the pipes and pump!! Everything works well with the new clutch fitted.

Just watched the video provided by parts select and then went to work. Excellent video. If I had been better mechanically inclined it would have been much faster. Thank You Parts Select! Also fast shipping.

I watched a vidio on YouTube and figured the problem.then I tryed to find the clutch local but no luck! So I yahooed it and found this web sight,I ordered the the part and it came in a few days.The part showed up on a Friday and I put it in the next morning.I watched the link your parts sight refered me to and was very good ! I got all the tools together and started the project,it wasn't the exact same unit but it showed you enough to figure it out.I ran the vidio as I did the project and it went smoothly.I am very happy with the parts, the web sight and the lincks it shared with me . I booked marked the sight for future reference and have already shrared it with someone who has the same problem. thank you for all the help!

The clutch itself was fairly easy to repair. I did use some tips from youtube on disassambly, and the enclosed instructions helped to put the clutch in. There were 3 bolts I had to remove to take the drive assembly off, and 1 to pull the agitator out. And putting it back together it went in almost backwards. All in all, this is a fairly simple procedure in taking the time to complete the steps

The spin cycle was super slow leaving clothes soaking wet at the end of a full wash cycle. Ordered a clutch repair kit, watched the how to video that was e-mailed to me with my order while I did the repair and got it done in about 45 minutes. This was my first true appliance repair outside of maybe a busted fuse or replacing the heating element in a stove. Never thought taking the motor, transmission and clutch out of the washer and putting all back together would be so very simple. Meanwhile my wife is pissed because she thought she might be able to go get a brand spankin new washer...until I fixed the old one. Thanks for saving me some dough PartSelect.

We started to get water hammer in the pipes when ever the washer was set to cold? Looked it up here and figured the inlet was about to go out, ordered the part, 2 days later, brand new washer, no more problems. Local repair would have cost us at least $100.00, part was $25.00 shipped, videos are awesome tools, PartsSelect Rules!!!

Looked at the video instructions on the web site, then noticed my model was slightly different. Switched to YouTube. Searched "Water Inlet Valve Replacement Whirlpool Washer". The repair was faster than advertised (40 minutes total). Less time than waiting for a repair person... Very good delivery service from Part Select. Will buy again!
