Washer would not drain

  • Difficulty: Easy

The repair on this model did not require disconnecting the water supply or drain hoses as suggested in the video presentation because it didn't have to be tipped over. Just unscrew and tip over the control panel and remove the cabinet. The lid switch and water pump are then easily accessible. The lid switch was clearly broken by visual inspection. In a model this old replacing the pump at this cost is advisable, especially since it is easy accessible. Easy job. Machine now works fine.

Washer would not drain - cause:failed lid switch

Followed the excellent instructions and video.to replace the lid switch. As noted in some of the comments, a few people experienced difficulty in reinstalling the main enclosure so it would lock in place. I did too. Instructions to reverse the dis-assembly are precisely correct, ..key is to center then slide the front of the enclosure into place while enclosure is slightly tipped toward the front, then let the enclosure rotate back in place. Finally figuring out to follow the directions exactly was the most time consuming aspect of the job. BTW, found did not need to remove the hoses since could do the whole job essentially in place. Great diagnostic, great installation instructions. Still can''t figure out why switch needed to be shipped in such a big box.

I went to YOUTUBE to see what the issue might be. I found a PartSelect video that described my problem. I than called PartSelect and talked to a nice gentleman named Derek. He double checked to make sure I had the right part numbers, and helped me complete my order. I received the parts package the next day even though I did not request overnight. Everything I needed was in the kit and I had the washer repaired in less then 30 minutes. Thanks for the help PartSelect.

I looked at the video that was available for a general idea. I knew the exchange was fairly simple but it never hurts to watch someone else explain it. Used my socket and extension, some lube as recommended, replaced the pieces, tightened and turned the washer on. Worked like a charm. Thanks

My hubby had JUST left for vacation the day prior - now I've got myself and 3 kiddies that need clean clothes and I have to save the day... All I needed was a socket with an extension to get to that nut all the way down the shaft after popping the center cap off. Once that was done the column came right out and I just put together the cam agitator assembly the exact way it was in the washer, about 3 parts and a rubber washer and gasket - super simple!! I ordered the part expedited (for obvious reason) and Parts Direct for the exact part I ordered to me within 2 days - will definitely order from them again!!
