Followed the video and instructions included with part. At first we did not think the repair was successful, but after several small loads were run, squealing stopped. The washer is 16 years old and so far is running like new. We certainly appreciated the great customer service. The part was delivered in less than 24 hours.

Teeth inside the plastic gear ring had worn down after almost constant use. FYI, this is a "Commercial" branded washer and we have used it almost daily since purchase. It doesn't have the bells and whistles (or the electronic boards) the new ones have, but it washes clothes and does it well! I ordered the complete agitator kit, reasoning it would be faster to replace the entire unit - I was right. The single bolt is 7/16" and required a socket wrench with a 10" extension bar. The hardest part was getting the tools together, and this took the longest. Actual repair only consumed about 10" - remove the bolt, put the new assembly on and replace the bolt. The printed instructions were not completely clear as to whether the thrust washer went above the slip clutch or below it, and I could not get the halves of the old agitator apart to verify, so I went with putting it below the clutch. I am reasoning that the upper assembly should rest on this plastic washer to reduce wear on the separate halves of the assembly.

The repair took about an hour. My wife told me the washer was so quite that she had to check and make sure it was running. It was like getting a new washer for less than 30 dollars. I've saved Part Select web site to my favorites and will use your company again.

After some research, it seemed like the water pump was the culprit since I knew all of the hoses were good. My washer was a little different from the one in the repair video. My washer didn't have the gauges on a hinge, so it sort of had to hang there. Also, there were no spring clips on the interface/dashboard, there were screws at the back of the washer that I had to unscrew which allowed me to lift up the dashboard so that I could remove the clips from the back to the main panel that surrounds the front/sides. Because my washer was old, I had the most difficulty just pulling the old pump off and putting the side/front panel back on the front of the machine. The video was obviously from a guy replacing a part on a brand new washing machine. Just work the part gently back and forth and you should be able to remove if it doesn't come off right away. I've run 2 loads of laundry through the washing machine with no leaks, so this fix was cheap and awesome!

There are youtube vids on how to get the thing open. I just wish I'd known the following: 1.remove agitator BEFORE opening the unit up and leaning it back (much easier to work inside the tube with it upright). 2. be aware that a free-floating part known as the skate plate can dislodge while the unit is on it's side/back. It is a generally triangular piece of flat-ish metal between the base of the tub and the top of the drive-train chassis. If it doesn't line up properly after you replace the parts you're going to get a noisy, clanking spin cycle the next time you run the thing (as I discovered).

The cap thingy seal broke and splattered fabric softener.

The prooblem started with the hole in the bottom frame, for tub spring wore through, spring fell off, then a spring retainer worn broke in 2 releasing 1 suspention spring. All springs were about to fail, metal very thin at at the contact points. Drilled a new hole for the new suspension spring, replace all 3 brackets, worn also, springs, and retainers with a small dab of grease at the contact points. The new springs mad the tub more stable than before the failure, and silent when spinning or washing. Be careful to get the springs in the right direction, then the spring comes over the outside the brackets and retainers, other way they rub in spots. On this machine one was backwards from the factory 18 years ago, surely that accounts for more stable running.

I would like to preface this comment with the fact that as a 72 year old female retiree the need to conserve $$ was paramount. The instructions provided with the purchase of the part were clear and concise. First, I removed the cap on top of the agitator, (some machines have a fabric softener dispenser) then removed the small screen exposing the Nut that attaches and tightens the agitator to the machine. After loosening the nut, one hearty tug removed the entire agitator shaft allowing me access to the agitator cogs. After removing the worn cogs and replacing them with the new I then put all components together, tightened with the socket wrench and now have perfectly functioning agitator. Thank you!!
