I could add absolutely nothing to the instructions given on your site. They were short, simple and easy to follow. I was so proud of just how well everything did go. We were looking at a three hundred dollar repair bill, which I did myself for about twenty bucks! To be perfectly honest, it was actually fun! Thank you so much for your site! Aerospace designer

Removed the fabric softner at the top of the agitator (needed a screw driver to pry it loose) and reached in to grab the barrier with my hand and pulled it out, very simple to do.When I put the new one in I put some liquid soap on the gasket and it snapped right into place.Very easy to do, all is well now, thanks Part Select.

Upper agitator not working

  • Customer: Ralph from Green Cove Springs, FL
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Socket set

I removed the fabric softener dispensoer. Used a ratchet with extension and socket to remove retaining bolt and removed the agitator assembly. I then pulled the upper agitator off the bottom and replaced the broken parts. Reassembled in reverse order and repair complete. Watch the video Partselect offers for free and see how simple it is. If your upper agitator will rotate in both the clockwise and counterclockwise direction, it needs to have the cams replaced. They work like a ratchet to only allow one direction which make the agitator function properly.

Removed top of agitator(where softener is added, just pulls off), removed agitator cap barrier with needle nose pliers. Unscrewed visible center bolt with nut driver, pulled top part of agitator off(firm pull). With pliers pulled out cog assembly, replaced cogs in assembly. Holding top part of agitator upside down placed cog assembly back into agitator and then placed agitator back into washer so cogs don't fall out. retighten bolt.

I had already taken the agitator apart to see what the problem might be. that was very simple. When I watched the video you have on your sight, you took it apart the same way I did, so you have it right!

I took the Agitator Cap Barrier out of the Top part of the agitator and than screw that holds the 2 parts together. I removed the part that holds the Cogs. I replace the Directional Cogs (dogs) into the holder, replaced the holder into the top agitator, replace the screw, put the new Agitator Cap Barrier in and it now works as good as new!! It took me 3 minutes tops!

Followed instruction found on line, they were very helpful and very well done by tech. I have a back ground in appliance repair mostly ge. I find the design of whirlpool washing machine was very well done, the repair of all major parts was easy and simple. Best designed washer I have ever worked on. Delivery of my needed parts was fast. I put parts in the machine it really didn't need, felt I could get another 10 years out of the appliance. Very vert satisfied, thank you

Washer would not spin

I Googled "washer would not spin" and came upon the PartSelect YouTube video on replacing the motor coupling. Since this seemed easy enough (and I'm a 40-year-old Mom), I decided to take the washer apart as the video instructed just to see if I could find anything obviously broken or out of place. Low and behold, the rubber gasket around the coupling was broken and indicated the coupling probably was too. I ordered the part through the direct link on the YouTube video and easily put the new coupling on and VOILA! The only thing I'd recommend differently is that you leave the pump alone. It doesn't need to come off to get to the coupling. After wrestling with trying to remove the pump, I left it in place, but not before unknowingly damaging it. I had some rust build-up in there and it made the fit very tight and cracked the part/sleeve the motor drive plugs into. When the washer was reassembled I found I'd caused a leak. But...no biggie. I decided to replace pump, too. Hey, now I know how to! :) Just received that part yesterday and VOILA! It's amazing what you can accomplish with the internet. Don't be afraid of this task, ladies (and gentlemen).

Motor did not turn drum and made sound

Your video was very helpful in showing steps for repair so I didn't have to discover how to disassemble. The old Direct Drive Motor Coupling had three broken couplers on one side and a cracked center on the other. New Direct Drive Motor Coupling was a much improved design that should last even longer than original. The couplers metal sleeves and overall thicker part was what original should have been.
