Just follow the partselect video connected to the part! I have tracked down some appliance parts locally in the past but I must say that using partselect was so much easier and educational than driving across town and/or making calls. For $10, the 10yr old washer is back and operational as it should be. It's only about a 15 minute job but after reading other comments here, I went ahead and cleaned the scum(yes you have it too) on the inside of both the bottom and top agitator pieces. If I need appliance parts, I will be back to partselect. Ordered Sun at 930p and got part Tue at 10a. Great Job! Great Service! Good to see it still exists out there.

The reached into the opening and slide the cog holder out. Removed the reainer ring and slide the cogs out. Installation is the reverse. total time less than 15 mins. My agitator is now agitating. Thanks

The agitater just poped the top off took the bolt out and put in new agitater dogs that took about 10 minutes. I put a new switch in the lid. Two screws a couple of easy clips and the switch was easy to get to and change. PartSlect sent me a video of each job and it was a breaze.

Basin fills with water, tub doesn't spin, nor does pump engage

The symptoms gave every indication that power wasn't getting to the washer, other than to the control panel. By reaching over the tub I could feel the switch and push it down. It didn't feel right. No "click" and the lever seemed to have too much travel. The unit was in a rental property and was full of water and tenant clothing. Taking the washer apart to further diagnose the problem had drawbacks so I ordered the switch with high confidence that that was the failed part. The repair was simple. Remove the screws that hold down the control panel and that hold the case to the frame. Rock the case forward and the switch is easily accessible.

The washer would not empty the water nor change to rinse cycle

I would definately not have been able to do it without the online video explanation. I followed the instructions carefully. If I had to do it again it would take much less time. i was very pleased with the result.

We began by tracing the original lid switch wires to the front dial in the top cabinet. Once the screws to the top cabinet were removed, we were able to trace the wires and find out how the other end fit in. Through trial and error, we found out that the front of the washer could be pulled forward and lowered. We were then able to access, remove and replace the entire assembly.

Well washer was not draining I went to Youtube and the lidswitch was described as possible problem.

The repair was extremely easy and quick. Bought the replacement agitator kit that came with everyting I needed. I ordered a seperate thrust bearing, but the agitator kit actually included a new one. Agitator was loose and not spinning prior to repair. When the repair was complete it was like new. Pick up a small tube of silicone grease prior to the repair.
