Drum moves and strange noise when spinning

When I pulled the machine out, I noticed one of the suspension springs on the floor. I followed the video supplied by PartSelect.com and suggestions by other folks. I started with the spring that was missing, which was a mistake since I did not know that there are custom spring clips which hold the spring to the drum. Once I found the missing part the installation was very easy. I used the suggestion by another post, of wedging a block of wood between the back of the machine and drum, to relax the rear suspension spring, which eliminated having to remove the back of the machine or tipping the machine on the back to get at the screw. I will always look to PartSelect.com for any future appliance repairs. You are the greatest

I performed the repair the same as outlined in the video, but I didn't need to tip the washer on the back side. Once I removed the sheetmetal, I was able to swap out the drive coupler, and the new part is a better design than the one that broke.

I looked up the problem on the internet and how to fix it, ordered the parts when I knew what the problem was and fixed it. The parts came really fast, they included a video on email to show you exactly what to do and paper instructions, it was simple to fix. The only thing was that the kit does not include the agitator grease.

I followed the directions in the two videos that were provided on your web sight. It fixed the problem and it only cost us about $60.00. We were so thrilled with the results. We were almost ready to go buy a new washer. My wife suggested that we look it up on line and see if we couldn't fix it ourselves before spending the money on a new washer. Was she ever right! Thanks for providing such fine instructional videos.

Drum not spinning!

Watched the on site video.....Did everything except removing the cabinet....Laid the washer on the front side and did the repair underneath in less than 30 minutes.....I might add the new coupler is much better than the original which was all white plastic....The new part was nylon and had metal inserts. The original had no inserts. Some have said the original part that had the two flat sides would just round out causing the drum not to agitate or spin. Mine just broke in half. I don't see this new part breaking or rounding out the metal inserts.....I might add Whirlpool OEM part was costing much more and with a 5 business day wait on delivery....Parts Select 1.8 day was advertised and it came in two days.....You won't go wrong doing business with Part Select.

Two out of six interlocking spokes of the plastic flex-coupling hubs had broken off due to years of service. Contributing factors were running heavy bath towels.

Was going to "...just take it apart and fix it" as my career covered being a mechanic, machinist and vocational instructor for over 35 years. Just in case. I decided to visit the PARTSELECT" website for "How-To" guidance. There I fund excellent troubleshooting guidance, including root-cause analysis in % of likeliest cause(s). This was followed with a brief step-by-step descriptions of "How-To" activities, including necessary tools. Best of all was the short instructional video, showing exactly how to go about the repair in a safe and systematic manner. As a former instructor, I am truly impressed by the quality of the material and service this website offers! It made my job so much easier, and consequently it was well done in no time. I urge every customer to follow the excellent guidelines and strongly recommends this site to others. Total cost of my repair was $11.00 for the part, plus shipping; saving me a bundle and possible grief and frustration! The website gives great customer service off- and on-line with follow through by courteous personnel. Thank you for the superior customer service and level of support at every step!
