Washer woulp not spin, brake cam driver not like video

changed parts easily, following the video. Problem was the BRAKE CAM DRIVER, the plastic piece that fits around the shaft near the drum. The old one was visibly torn up, the pegs worn off, the whole thing worn down. The problem with the repair was the video showed an "E ring" holding it on and my washer had no E ring, had nothing hold it. It just sat there. Installed it anyway, although I was worried it was too loose. Sure enough there was a problem. it spun initially then started that ugly clicking noise. turned off washer immediately, disassembled again, and prayed. I found a large flat washer to take up the slack between the clutch and the plastic brake cam driver, reassembled, tightening the nuts a fair bit tighter than before. both the nuts on the transmission and the nut on top the agitator. works perfect!

Bad Motor Coupler

So, the instructional video was great but be warned that you REALLY need to hammer the part into place. Basically hammer it into place so that the end of the shaft that it goes on is flush with the plastic piece of the coupler on both ends. Otherwise, you'll put the washer together and run a load and it'll squeal and smell like burning rubber. We had to take it apart like 3 times before we got it on there securely enough. We would then run an empty load and it would be fine but as soon as we would add clothes the squealing and burning would ensure. So, my advice is to hammer it in well and save yourself the time and struggle!

Motor Coupling failed after 20 years!

Determined based on some Internet searches that the part that we needed was the motor coupling; washer would not spin or agitate. Once I figured out how to removed the cover (by the way, one of the guys at an appliance store told me how to do it), and reviewing the video on your website, I removed the two screws and four clips, dropped the motor, inserted the parts and put it back together - all in about 15 or 20 minutes. It was easy and clean and the washer worked again. Hopefully go for another 5-10 years. Thanks.

First of all I must say thanks guys for your help, the instructions were right on the money. I first replaced the clutch as per the instructions but found out that the problem was the motor coupling ........ It was broken. I ordered it, followed the instructions and I was a hero in my household. Once more thanks guys.

The video installation instruction was clear and very easy to follow. However, after installing the parts and started testing the washer, the water overflowed. It looks like the water level sensor wasn't working. It caused a little flooding in the area where the washer is. I took the control panel apart once more and this time diagnosed the water level sensor and analyzed how it works. After spending almost 45 minutes with, I detached the hose attachment and blew air which caused air bubbles in the inner side of the drum. I bent the hose to hold the air while re-attaching same to the sensor. This fixed the problem and the washer is once more, operating normally. Please include this part to your video instruction. Overall, it took me 8 hours on the project including the cleanup due to overflow.

I watched the video that PartSelect provided on their web site. The instructions were very precise and easy to follow. I watched the video twice and just followed the instructions. I would highly recommend this approach to washing machine repairs. It certainly saved me a lot of money.

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!

Unit did not spin

  • Customer: David from Denver NC
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Socket set

Pretty simple task, and pretty much followed hints in the video provided by the web site. Unit worked fine after replacing the parts. Most awkward part of the job was getting cabinet back into position to secure to the base. A bigger working space or a second pair of hands would have helped in securing cabinet. Only took over two hours (working slow) because cabinet kept sliding out of position while trying to secure.
