when I replaced the other one it was broken also but you wouldn't know it by just looking at it. The only problem being able to get the new one back on I put it on pushing from the front, I can only imagine the ttrouble I'll have get it out again I'll probable have to cut it out with somthing because it's right up against the circiut board housing. other wise not a bad job. But I think my age has somthing to do with it.Not much strength.

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 had called a repair man; and fortunately he never returned my call. After reading many of the reviews involved with the same problem, and wanting to use my washer, I decided it was easy enough to give it a try. And so it was. 2 screws in back removed the cover; and 2 screws in the front of the washer permitted the removal of the affected part. Removed three "plugs" from old; put them on the new part; replaced it back in the washer, and replaced the two front screws, which held it in place. Replaced top, securing with the two screws. And surprise - surprise -- the washing machine was working again! Your reviews were so helpful and encouraging --- that this really old lady decided to try it --- and like they all said "It was really easy to fix."

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.

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.

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.

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.
