Valve body froze and broke

The washer was in the garage, and if you take off the top of the washer, the entire inside is un-insulated. THAT is why these things freeze and break in the cold. Turn off the water, un-hook the water hoses, remove the frozen valve body (two screws into the soap dispenser) and replace. The new part doesn't come with the rubber grommets that slide into the soap dispenser, so use your old ones. Put some WD-40 on the rubber grommets and push the valve body into the soap dispenser....it will slide in soooo much easier than without it. After screwing in the two screws to the soap dispenser, wrap the valve body loosely (but completely) with some fiberglass insulation. I insulated the whole inside of the washer (staying clear of the motor and belt) so that it would survive colder temps!

The entire process, from diagnosing the problem, ordering the part, and instalation was fantastic! I ordered the part Friday afternoon and had it at my door Saturday afternoon. I was so relieved to read the installation posts from other customers demonstrating how common this issue is and how easy it was to fix! I simply watched the installation video that was sent with my confirmation email. It is also conveniently located on your website. I had the new part installed in less than 30 minutes AND before my husband got home! Thank you Partselect.com!

Unplug washer from wall outlet. Turn off Hot and Cold water at the valves. Place towel below water inlet on washer and remove Hot and Cold water lines. Use channel lock pliers if connections are too tight. Put hose ends in bucket to catch water left in the lines. Remove two Phillips head screws from the rear of washer cover. Slide cover to the rear to remove. Disconnect 4 electrical harness plugs from inlet dispenser valve. 3 valve plugs, red, green, and blue. 1 thermistor sensor plug. Use Flat head screw driver to pry tabs on inlet valve and vent pipe retainer at the rear of washer. Remove retainer. Twist vent pipe counter clockwise and remove. Use Phillips head screw driver to remove 2 screws on the lower right and left sides of the dispenser valve. Recommend using a magnetic screw driver as dropping a screw will prolong the job. Pull back on dispenser valve and save 2 rubber seals that come out. Put the seals on the new dispenser valve and reverse previous steps to re-assemble.

before you buy any parts do this first..turn on your washing machine,then push and hold start and pause at the same time.An error code will come up,look in your book and see what that code represents. Mine came up 47.that error for my machine was the door switch.

Front glass broke

The front loading washer door was wobbely so I took it apart as per wife request. Hinge looked fine, bushings were fine so I started to put it back together... then the glass slipped out and to the ground. Take the time to remove the door hinge and assemble on a flat surface, then place the whole assemble back on the washer machine. Don't try to take door apart while still attached to machine. Try it you will understand and then you will be buying a new glass front.

removed top of washer then removed the screws that held the lock in place. only hard part was the lack of room to slide my hand down to get the lock from inside the washer,and put the new one in. managed to find a tech sheet in the washer to put the washer in a "service mode" that is where i could make the washer do a final spin.but it still gave me a code that the door lock was not working properly.(even though it still locked)replaced the lock with a new one and the code disappeared and did a full final spin.. thanks guys

Had to take the front and back panel off the washer. A couple of clamps and electrical plug in came off and then the motor. Put the new motor on plugged it back in and put on the clamps put the panels back on and was able to wash a load of clothes. It is now quiet and spins the clothes out as if it was brand new.

I took off the broken part with a screw driver. I easily found the needed part on your website. After I ordered the part, it came within 2 days. It was the correct part and was replaced within 10 minutes of opening the package. Thanks for the great, easy and quick service!
