Using the video I was able to remove the outer frame and found the water pump was leaking. Ordered a new part and using the video was able to replace without a problem. Machine works great, no leaks. My son and son-in-law said just replace the machine...well once I found the problem, was an easy fix. The hardest part was lining up the outer frame so the fitting was right. I'm 65 young and yes women you can do it!!

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.

Had to remove the control panel and the back of the machine to get to the leads for the switch. Then installed the switch, but had to move the ground wite to the back of the machine because I could not get to the ground screw in the top of the machine. I just added it to an existing ground wire screwed to the back. Everything worked fine.

The most difficult part was aligning the two sides of the coupling. Disassembling the motor from the transmission was a snap. The replacement coupling was of higher quality than the original. It had metal bushings in the center holes, where they interface each driveshaft. The original did not. It was plastic.

metal reinforced coupling

The repair went very well as per the video, however the metal reinforced coupling only went onto the shaft half way. To ensure the coupling was flush with the top of the shaft I has to use a hammer and tamp the coupling onto the shafts. If you left it halfway on the shafts there was no room for the rubber spacer between the couplings. Other wise it operates very well.

I unscrewed the two screws in the back of the machine on each side of the top. After gently lifting it up and taking a peek inside I saw two clamps holing the back to the washer, I used a flat head screw driver to work them loose and put them to the side. After removing the top, it exposed the switch connection where you plug in the end of the switch. pushing the body forward exposed the rest of the switch. using a philip head screw driver I unscrewed the two screws under the lip to release the switch from the washer body and used a small socket to unscrew the screw for the ground. Two clips hold the assembly underneath the inside of the top of the body they slide on so you can pry them off and then pinch the ends so they will hold again. after installing the assembly lower the body back down,reinstall clamps that hold back to washer body making sure the back slides under the control board top, reinstall screws and you're ready to wash again.

You guys are "Awesome" I wish I had known about your site and watched the video's first!!! When my washer started acting up, I tore it down to parade rest trying to figure out why it wasn't spinning! Then I discovered your web site searching for help. Anyhow, it identified my problem, I watched the video on the most likely cause (the Direct Drive Motor Coupling), checked it out, and discovered one of the couplings was cracked and rounded out..... Thanks to you, the washer's fixed and I can't Thank you enough! Sincerely, Terry Kuster P.S. Everyone will know about your Web site. Thanks again!

Washer would not empty

I watched the videos on the PartSelect website:- extremely helpful! My machine configuration was a little different from that in the video but this was not a problem. Both parts were very simple to remove and install. The only problem was refitting the unit consisting of the washer front, two sides and top. The video warns of the need to ensure that the two sides properly engage in the lugs on the base. Once I realized that I could look through the top (hold the lid open) to help with the repositioning, the task was simple. If I had noticed this earlier, the repairs would have taken less than 30 minutes.

Put washing machine on it's back giving easy access to the bottom and the impeller. Removed hoses, clamps on the pump and it slips off. Put on new pump, hoses and clamps...job was done. Stood the machine upright and reconnected the inlet hoses with new washers.
