Age and condition of the washer were unknown. I had no agitator grease available. I went for just the replacement of the Agitator Directional Cogs. I reviewed the video for replacing the whole kit. Removed fabric softener dispenser and the seal below. The seal needed to be cleaned. Removed the 7/16" bolt with a socket and extra long extension. Removed the agitator. Pulled off upper agitator. The part that holds the cogs is in about the center of the upper agitator. It also needed to be cleaned. One original cog was broken the other were past needing to be replaced. Replaced the cogs and the retainer. There was some effort with getting the upper agitator down far enough to re-install the bolt. That was just a slight alignment issue. The other parts were put back in place.

Pulled off the fabric softner holder, pulled out the cover for the agitator. Used a socket set to loosen the screw that holds in the agitator hub, pulled out the hub, removed the gasket from the cogs and replaced new cogs. Works like new!!!!

The new coupling parts are better made than the original parts. It was difficult to disassemble motor unit to get at the the old coupling, but once that was accomplished, the new coupling installed pretty easily. The machine is working fine now.

1) Unplugged power to the machine. 2)Disconnected the water inlet hoses and the drain hose. 3)Placed the washer on the front of the cabinet. 4) Moved the washer to an area large enough to allow it to be laid down and worked on. 5)Removed the sound deading panel from the bottom of the washer. 6)Disconnected the electrical plugs from the motor. 7)Disconnected the two hoses to the pump. 8)Removed the two strap retaining bolts from top of the motor. 9) Removed the two motor retaining straps. 10) Removed motor and pump assembly from the transmission. 11) Removed the broken drive coupler and replaced it with the new coupler. 12)Reassembed in reverse order. Wish I had seen the brake repair vidieo before this repair was done. It shows how to remove the trasmission and motor asembley as a unit.

Screeching noise, would not drain at all.

Got on the PartSelect website and diagnosed the problem, purchased the replacement part, received the part in 2 days....very quick. I simply watched the "how to" video for the part, which was very easy to understand, and followed the instructions and was able to take out the old part (found it to be broken), replace it with the new part and fixed the washer. It took about 40 minutes, and everything works great. Easy, cheaper and faster than calling a repairman.

Washer didn't spin one day. Just made a clunking noise.

I first thought that the fan belt came off. Got the cloths out of machine, and tipped on over to look under, where I discovered that there was no fan belt. Looked online for answers, and found that machine was direct drive. Looked around under machine for something damaged or broke. Saw the direct drive coupling was cracked into three pieces. Ordered the part I was 95% sure I needed, and it was at my house in less than 48 hours. Watched a video on how to replace the direct drive coupling. This was amazing and easy to use information. Made me feel like a pro. The video covered everything you could imagine for the repair, step by step. Machine runs now as good as new.

Repair went really well thanks to the video PartSelect had posted with the drive motor coupling. It showed me how to take machine apart to replace the coupling. Loved the step-by-step instructions. Made it so easy for my son and me to do together and I am a female.
