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.

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.

Washer would drain, but not spin

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."

washer would not aggitate or spin

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.

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!
