Some parts are hard to remove due to the inability to see the locking section of the fastener pin. The parts installation is self explanitory and no asdjustment is required, so beyond laying on the floor of a very small room and not being able to see some of the parts it's not bad.

we removed the back panel of the washing machine, removed the old pins to the shocks and re-installed the shocks and pins. one pin gave us a hard time but it eventually went back in. the job was not to bad to do and now the wash machine is so quiet we can't even tell that it is on : ) this is our second repair that we have done on it ourselves, the first time we had to install a new control unit and spring and that was fairly easy also. who needs to spend alot of money to get their appliances repaired, you can easily do it yourself and save some money, plus we ordered the parts online and received them in about 2 days

The tub had severe vibration and actually impacted the sides of the washer

The machine had the vibration for sometime but still worked so we left it alone until it stopped working. After some trouble shooting I discoverd 1. both lower shocks were broken off and the tub had hit the controller connector on the front right side so hard it had come loose. After plugging it back the washer worked again so I ordered the shock absorber kit from part select. I was able to install it by only removing the front lower cover. The pins took some effort to push back in but the parts fit perfectly and we are back in business. I had to use a large set of channel locks to force the pins back in as well as tapping them with a hammer.

Assumed this 12 year old washer was broken beyond repair so went to Lowe's and paid $880 for a new one. Out of curiosity, I removed the back and the lower front panel from the old washer to see why it would not work and found the two shock absorbers were both broken. I ordered new ones and it took me 15 minutes with a pair of pliers and a small hammer to replace the shocks. The washer now works perfectly again and I could have saved $880! Goodwill is going to get lucky on this one!

I followed the instructions that came with the parts. I used a regular socket to remove the pins instead of the deep well socket recommended, because I didn't take the machine completely apart. and the space wasn't enough for the deep well sockets. It worked perfectly. After I got the pins removed, then oriented the absorbers correctly and pushed and pulled the pins back in place and it was done.

Watched video on-online when I ordered the parts. The video showed the left side shock replacement and it looked very easy, however; the right side require a little more work due to the motors and electrical box that had to be moved before I could remove the shock pins. I layed the washing machine on its back and removed the broken shocks and put the bottom pins back in on each schock and then stood the machine back up right; took the back panel off so I could replace the upper pins on both sides with ease. I then went to the front and re-attached all the hoses, clamps, and electrical box. Before I replace the front panel, I took a 1/4 socket and wratchet and leveled the machine in its perminent place by adjusting the four feet by reaching into the machine with the 1/4 inch socket and wratchet and adjusting the feet one by one until level.

with the help of my nephew, we unstacked dryer after power sources were shutoff first. then simply removed the two screw attaching lid on washer. then removed two screws holding switch from front of machine. fished switch up to a visible area, exchanged bad for good. fed switch back to it's home,then reversed assembly procedures. these forums are great and have saved me money by enabling the repair both washer and dryer at a very reasonable cost without the need of a certified repair person.

Technition said door switch. I questioned his diagnosis. I felt that if the switch was bad, the washer wouldn't fill either. He simply repeated that it was the door switch, so I ordered one. $30 for his diagnosis, plus $15 for the part. There was nothing wrong with the door switch in the washer. (If the sw was bad, the machine would not fill with water. just that simple. This was a complete waste of $45.
