Almost identical to the instruction video that was sent. Very straight forward. I did not take apart the washer to identify the problem. I was short on time so I took a chance and ordered the highest probability cause of the symptoms indicated by your website. It was dead on; the problem is fixed. Parts were received ahead of schedule. Excellent all around.

Washer was not spinning clothes on 1st spin

After researching possible failure modes and reviewing a video for teardown/access from the control panel and access top down I noticed a lot of 'break dust' on top of the transmission. Shorting out the lid switch and putting my little finger on the drum, it would not spin but the clutch was spinning fine. I ordered a new clutch... Interesting thing when I was taking the clutch out... the gear it was attached to slid right off! After figuring out it was too big to go 'back' into the transmission and reviewing the parts explosion diagram... it BELONGED INSIDE THE TRANSMISSION! So I took the transmission cover off, poured out out the black-ish oil with metal filings in it, put the gear inside, filled it back up with 10W30, put the lid on, added the new clutch while it was apart and finished reassembly. Wow! It spins much better than when it was new. I guess never assume what can happen on an assembly line. Thanks for the great site.

Tilted the machine back. Done carefully the hoses can all stay connected. Removing the pump from the motor first makes it easier to access the clamps on the hoses. Be sure to have a pan handy to catch the excess water out of the drain hose when you disconnect it. Connect the hoses to the new pump. rotate the shaft on the motor to line it up with the hole in the back of the pump. Clip the pump back in place, set the washer back in place and it's all over. It took me more time to file this repair story than it did to perform the repair.

Very easy - less than 30 min. Followed installation video available on PartSelect website, except did not have to disconnect all hoses or lay on back. Left washer in place all connected and raised up on blocks about 6" off floor. Removed cabinet as per video instructions. Changed pump as per video instructions. Video from website was crucial to easy repair. Would not have known how to release cabinet latches and remove cabinet without video. Cabinet was off in 3 min. and entire job was less than 30 min.

Disconnect washer from all connections and slide away from the wall far enough to give clearance where you can tilt the washer and lay on it's back. Remove old pump and replace with new pump, then reconnect washer to wall connections.

This is a not for men only job. The worst part was taking the flimsy, rusty-on-the-inside case on and off. If you've never done it before, I would recommend photographing each section that you take apart so you can more easily see how it goes back together. The video is a great help for general ideas, but unless your model is exactly like that one there may be other parts. Wiggling the clamps off the hoses wasn't easy as the wrench kept slipping of the clamp ends. Finally I figured out that a wrench that clamps on and stays put was the right answer. Replacing the pump was easy--just like in the video. Now I have a secondary problem: the water now gushes out of the standpipe when the water exits the tub. I think the pump is better than the last one even before it broke, so the water is coming out too fast. I found a little part that makes the exit hole on the drain hose a lot smaller, plus I covered it with a stocking in case the part came flying off. Last time I tested it only about a cup of water came out of the pipe. I think there may be air in the pipe, so I have some things to try for that but at least I feel like I'm going in the right direction. This site is great--I already paid for one professional repair and the washer isn't worth another one but I'd like to keep it running for a few more months anyway.

Water leaking from under the middle of the front panel.

I watched the video on the Partselect website. Appled the same technique for my machine and the repair was just as easy. Unplugged the washer, removed two screws from the top panel, flipped it up and removed the two brackets that hold the cabinet in place. Removed the cabinet, the pump is right in front held on by two clamps. Removed the clamps, unhooked the hoses, put the new pump in attached the hoses and the clamps. I then put the cabinet back together and the repair was complete, wash machine is running again with no leaks.

I watched the video on the website on how to repair this and followed it. The repair went quickly. I spent more time moving the washer in and out of the location it was in than the time it took to repair.

Water pump had a leak near the central motion core

Remove the outer washing machine housing. Close-up inspection located the leak source. The water pump was removed by popping off the upper and lower metal brackets, then removing it from the two rubber hoses with their pinch clamps. Ordering a new part was easy on your web site, and it arrived in 2 days! I reversed the process, with the smaller hose's pinch clamp hard to manage with simple pliers, but doable with persistence. I LOVE my 23 yr old whirlpool washer, and don't want a newer model, so thanks for making repairs doable for an old lady!
