The agitator had stopped working

  • Customer: Jack from Matthews NC
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Socket set

We got the parts, watched your video a couple of times and then began the repair. It went well with one exception. None of my socket extensions were long enough to work well. The required length might be added to the video and the printed installation instructions. Also it would have nice to have been able to order a small tube of the recommended lubricant. Overall I was very pleased. Jack

Had a lot of corrosion on the shaft area and had a hard time removing the inner tub but after some WD-40 and unprintable words and labor it popped off. Cleaned everything up, shaft, inner drum and outer drum. After that everything was a piece of cake. Thanks for the help!

Washer leaking

After watching some on-line vids, I determined it was the center post, or tub, gasket at the bottom. A cheap part, and easy to snap-out the old and snap-in the new - But - I had to dissassemble the washer into individual washer component molecules. Luckily, I'd done this recently to replace the clutch drive, then the motor, then this. Not too bad, really. Washer body off (2 screws and two snap-links); agitator out (7/16" socket on extension); bang off tub nut (heavy hammer and punch); bang off drive block (hammer again); and pull tub up an out. Tub drain disconnected (pliers); pull off level sensing tube; three spring mounts (nutdriver); then just yank tub up. Poke out Centerpost gasket; snap in a new one; reassemble. Piece of cake.

The video on the PartSelect site was exactly right. Knowing ahead of time exactly what I needed to do and what tools were needed allowed me to correctly schedule the time it would take to do the job. The part arrived very quickly.

Timer would not advance

Actually I closely followed the video repairman's step by step instructions. Everything was just as he described and the replacement of the Lid Switch Assembly was simple--must have been because I could do it. I did make a list of each step the repairman suggested and took the list with me to the laundry room. This is the second repair I have made to the washer--replaced the inlet valve about a year ago. This was the second inlet valve replacement probably due to silt from our well after a storm. The first was replaced by our local repairman in 2001--to the tune of $77. With inflation I possibly saved $120 for the two simple repairs I made using PartSelect. Needless to say, I'm sold on PartSelect and their prompt shipping. Thanks

I watched the step by step repair video and fixed it myself like a pro in about 40 minutes. What great guidance video and with a $26.00 part. This is my 5th fix it yourself appliance that I repaired myself with PARTSELECT. I remember in the past of my childhood. If something like this would have happened, my mother would have discarded the whole machine and would've struggled to come up with the money for a whole new machine. Thank you for giving away the secrets and telling an uneducated repairman how to fix these problems. Thank you ... Thank you! Clark

I was able to diagnose the problem because I saw the broken part hanging down, and after I called an appliance repair company and described the issue, I was quoted $280.00! I'm a newbie handi-woman, so I really appreciated the video that was posted on the partselect.com web page along with the lid switch part information. I placed my laptop nearby, got my tools out and watched, paused and performed the steps. Make sure you leave yourself enough time to clean out underneath and around the washing machine after you remove the washing machine cabinet, because if you're a clean freak like me, after 16 years, a lot of muck had accumulated. The repair was easy enough, I probably had the most difficulty with lining up and reattaching the cabinet back to the washing machine body. Overall, a good do-it-yourself project, and I am thankful to partselect.com for the awesome service and great repair video they had available.

Googled problem "Washer won't Spin", or something like that.This led to a video (showing my problem) on YOU TUBE by Parts Select which led to the wedsite for Parts Select. Wedsite showed my problem and solution. Entered make and model. The part was available, I ordered it. When it I place my laptop by machine and followed the instructions, step by step. 1. Unplug power. 2. Disconnect water supply. 3. Unsrew (2) screws on the top rear electronics housing. 4.Unscrew (2) screws at the front of the electronics housing. 5. Flip the housing to the back. (my model was a little different I had some clips I had to move around) 6. remove the metal clips that hold the lid / front cabinet from the rear. 7. Disconnect the little power coupling. 8. Pick the lip / shell up slightly upward from the rear to detach cabinet from base. 9. slide forward. 10. Unscrew the lid switch ( you could have done this before). 11. GO underneath the cabinet and detach the lip switch from the clips and there is one screw. 12. remove the old switch. 13. Replace the new in reverse order. 14. Replace the cainet back on the base, raise up slightly and make sure the little pegs go into the little slots that are in the front of the base. (you'll feel it snap into place). 15. Gently let down the rear of the cabinet. (It to should snap into place). 16. Replace all the connections in reverse order. 17. Connect water supply 18. Connect power. 19. GET BACK TO WASHING CLOSE.

Washer wouldn't complete cycle

First, I found your site (I entered Whirlpool parts) and tried to diagnose the symptoms. Next, I found the part I thought was malfunctioning described by a list of symptoms on your website. What was very helpful was the installation video that was attached on you site for the specific part. The lid switch was identical to the OEM part that came on the washer. Installation went well. The hardest part was aligning the cabinet back on the washer. All in all, very satisfied with everything. Oh, the part was about 50% less than what I could buy it for in the city I live in.
