Unplugged, removed water supply hoses, removed drain hose from washer, laid whole washer on it`s back without removing the cabinet, popped clips off the water pump and laid to side, took two screws out of clips that hold motor on and popped them off with a screw driver, unplugged wiring harness and another single wire on motor and then lifted motor off. Then pried the plastic pieces of the coupling off the the motor and transmission shaft. Cleaned debris off motor and washer, replaced plastic piece to the transmission and set rubber part on plastic. Then replaced new plastic piece on motor and set motor back into bracket and put all parts back on in reverse order. I make it sound hard but was a easy job.

Replaced the clutch - works great. HOWEVER - check the drain pump attached to the motor, there was a small sock clogging it up which also fixed the problem. I saved 600 bucks on not buying a new washing machine!!

Washer would not aggitate or spin

I watched the how-to video twice and the repair was just like it. My only tip would be to have a pan or floor drain nearby to empty the drain hose prior to tipping the machine on its back.

Water drains but tub does not spin

I chose to replace the Direct Drive Motor Coupling before replacing the lid switch because of cost and I like to see how things work. Hint: If the tub does not spin and water does drain, replace the lid switch first. That was the root problem. If you do replace the Direct Drive Motor Coupling, watch the video provided by PartSelect. The video saved hours of tinkering around. Follow the video instructions to the point of tipping the unit over to replace the coupling. There is about a quart of water in the unit even after the drain hose is removed. Either move the washer outside before doing the replacement or locate a sturdy pan to allow water to spill into as you tip the unit over. Lucky for me, there were some dirty towels waiting to be washed that were used to soak up the water. When you replace the coupling, tamp down the replacement piece that goes onto the transmission shaft with a large dowel and hammer. If the motor does not easily go back onto the shaft and you cannot turn the motor by hand, you need to tamp the replacement part down some more. The part ordered was correct and on-line instructions were very helpful.

Basket Not Spinning during Spin Cycle

Took apart machine exactly as described in the Direct Drive Motor Coupling Replacement Partselect video. Once I lifted out the motor it was clear that the motor coupling was at least part of the issue because it was in place but broken in pieces. I replaced the 2 plastic couplings and the rubber piece and put the machine back together, as described in the video. Afterwards, the spin cylce worked great, quiet and fast as ever. Very happy I did this myself I'm pretty sure I saved a few hundred bucks vs. a repair tech coming to the house. Note that the new couplings require some tapping in order to sink into place.

followed repair instruction,( bought on line and down loaded ) some instructions were unclear but when you have the machine apart its obvious. your parts breakdown helped more than the instructions once the cabinet was opened.

Looked on line at Parts Select, and noted there was 66% chance that problem was in lid switch. Stuck screw driver in slot under lid, pushed on switch and made washer work, verifying that problem was likely in switch. Ordered part. Disconnected washer from electric/water. Removed screws on back and sides of panel; lifted lid and cover; replaced switch; reinstalled cover. Reconnected to elec/water. Worked. No problema.

Hanger on motor broke and destroyed the coupling

Turned machine on it’s back after removing the hose that goes to the drain, removed the bottom dust guard, I removed the hoses (take a picture before removing things so you know how to orient them when putting it back together) and drained the water first but this is not necessary (there are YouTube videos where they suggest removing the outer case, unclipping the pump and then removing the motor. This would be optimal as you don't need to deal with the water running out of the washer when you remove the hoses). Removed the 4 electrical connectors (multi-plug, 1 x two prong plug and 2 capacitor connector plugs) One of the motor hangers were broken on my machine, I removed the other one and then slipped the motor out. Removed the broken hanger and securing screws and the old rubber grommets, slipped the coupling out (had to leverage out with a large flat screwdriver). Installed new coupling and rubber on the gearbox side, 4 grommets on the motor and the other coupling on the motor. Inserted the hangers on the gearbox side and then mounted the motor. (it is easier if you turn the washer on its back so the drum moves down and gives you more room to drop the motor in from the top), clipped the motor hangers on and fastened the two metal screws, mounted the pump and hoses and reinstalled the dust guard. Turned it right side up and tested before dragging it back into the laundry. Washing again like it did when first bought it in 1998. I would recommend that when a coupling brakes, replace it as well as the hangers and grommets to make sure it has no room for play. Mine broke way too quick as I did the last coupling about a year ago, problem I think was that I had the wrong grommets causing excessive vibration and wear.

Water leaknig from underneath front

  • Difficulty: Easy

Pretty much as directed. My only issue was the rust on the old part. It made it difficult to remove the old and to put on the new one. At first the new one wouldn't fit since the rust had essentially changed the size of the metal rod the new pump had to fit on. So I had to spend time sanding down/off the rust. But in the end I was able to do it and the part works great!

Leaking Water Pump

  • Customer: Paul from Miton DE
  • Difficulty: Really easy

I disconnected the washer from the water hoses and unplugged it. I laid it down on its back and the pump was right there on the bottom front. There were no clips holding the pump. With a pair of Channel Locks I disconnected the two hoses from the pump. I had to pry it off using a screwdriver. The pump shaft was rusty from the water leak so I wire brushed off. I put the new clips I ordered in place and pushed the new pump on. I then snapped the back clip on first because it was easier with a little tilt of the pump. I had to use my screwdriver to put the outside clip on. I reconnected the hoses put the wash back upright hooked up the water hoses and plugged it back in. I turned on and no leaks and is working good.

Washer was not spinning, but making a loud spinning noise.

  • Customer: William from Sonoma CA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours

Disconnected power. Disconnected hot and cold, and drain hoses and placed in a plastic bucket. Pulled cover off the washer. Tilted washer onto its back. Removed 2 clips holding the pump. Disconnected wire harness from motor and removed 2 clips holding motor starting with lower clip. Removed a screw from the upper clip used for shipping. Set motor aside and removed broken pieces of the motor coupler from motor and transmission. The replacement part had a metal sleeve in the center of each white plastic ring. The old part did not. This required tapping the new ring onto both the motor and transmission shafts with a socket and makes for a tight fit. Reversed the process to put everything back together. Some alignment might be necessary to place motor to transmission. I recomment wearing thin work gloves to avoid nicks from sharp edges. I didn't. Washer is spinning again and sounds a lot better.
