It was my Mothers washer & did find out the Direct drive Motor Coupling was a little warn & replaced not to hard but took more time to get top off because you have to really get under the top off hood & clips where really in there the vidio showed held on with screws & on this Kenmoore Elite the Clips are under the Hood which does make it alittle bit harder so you have to be careful not to bend up the Hood where all your controls are , But did not solve the issue. Looked at lid switch & it was damaged so now going to Replace it. If this was my machine probably would be a bit easier to have seen it is the Lid switch hopefully this next part will fix the problem.

Washer did not agitate or spin. Found broken coupling on motor. Top part of agitator did not rotate. Found broken cams.

Following the video posted with the part made this repair a piece of cake, well documented, filmed, great explanations of tools needed and how to do it all. This is a fantastic site for do it yourself people with a little bit of mechanical skills. BTW I've been a hvy. eqt. mech. for over 40 years so this is something different to tangle with and a lot cleaner. Thanks so much for your time and consideration in produceing this instructional video, and keep up the excellent work.

washer did not work after replacing agitatior parts

I was thrilled that the agitator parts were so easy to replace, but that didn't totally fix my problem. I looked underneath the washer and found black rubber shavings from a worn part and looked online and found that the problem was most likely the Direct Drive Motor Coupling. I watched the video and ordered the part. The coupling was actually broken. After replacing the part, the washer works great...better than it has in years. I think I will work on our dryer now.

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.

PartSelect has a training video for this repair. Remove the softener dispenser by popping it up with a flat screwdriver. Reach down inside the agitator and remove the bottom cap. Use a 7/16 socket on a six inch extension to remove the agitator bolt. At this point I recomment pulling the entire agitator assembly out for ease of disassembly and reassembly. Clean as necessary. Use a pair of needle nose pliers to remove the cog assembly. Place the cog assembly on a flat surface and use a flat screwdriver to remove the retainer. Note the position of the cogs and replace with the new. There are two plastic clips on the lower agitator that you can snap off to make reassemble easier. Replace the agitator in the tub. If you don't have a magnetic socket, I find it's helpful to place a small piece of paper towel across the socket to hold the agitator bolt in place as you slide it back down inside the agitator for reassembly. Tighten the bolt. Replace the bottom cap and softener dispenser.pa

Noisy Water Pump

I visually located the water pump on the washer and decided it was just as easy to put the unit on its back without removing the cover. I used slip-joint pliers to slide the hose clamps and removed the hoses (have towels and/or a shop vac handy) popped the retaining clips loose with a flat head screw driver and pulled the pump away from the washer. I set the new pump in place with one of the new retaining clips I ordered with the pump, slid the hose clamps back in place, set the second clip...done. I then installed new cogs, also an easy fix. Doing these two jobs myself saved $160 over what a repair person was going to charge. PartSelect delivery was fast and the videos and diagrams are spot on. I'm not sure I've had a better online purchase experience than I had with PartSelect.
