The pressure hose was my problem. It seemed to be connected and did not have any visible holes. When I blew in it there did not seem to be a leak. After trying some tubing from the hardware store that worked sometimes but not always I decided to get the manufacturer part. I realize now that the pressure has to be exact for the switch to work correctly. You can check the switch by blowing into the hose from the tub end, it should start to cycle once the pressure changes. If the switch works try replacing the hose even if you can't find a leak and use the manufacture part to get the correct pressure. Good Luck.

The belt is very tight. Use a zip tie to old the belt on as you work it around the large pulley. Once it is on remove zip tie and turn the pulley enough times to line up the belt evenly then your done.

installed water level pressure switch and hose easily but the symptoms were unchanged. Ordered and changed dual water inlet valve--also with no improvement. Checked belt and clutch operation and both were intact. Then I noticed that the reservoir on the outside of the drum on which the pressure hose attached seemed clogged. I used a wire to insert and open the clog. The washer now works like new. Recommendation: check for clogging in the semi-transparent reservoir before ordering a bunch of parts. Funny, this was never mentioned in the instruction videos.

The pump would stick and not pump the water out from time to time. I have removed the pump before and cleaned it so to replace it wasn't much different for me. The instructions on the web site were pretty straight and easy to follow.

Popped the clip onto hose, pushed into dryer hole and tighten bolts (bolts were on the dryer from previous hose, the hose clip or hose doesnot come with new bolts)

the hose that came on the machine was too short for a mobile home hookup

Couldn't get the agitator off by pulling up, then thought about it and got 2 carpenter claw hammers, inserted one on each side and puled up evenly on both and off she came. Sprayed the slots with WD Forty and popped the new on. THANKS saved us a lot of money!!!

"Thought" the belt was the problem - ordered new belt - waited for belt to arrive - opened washer. Belt was in perfect condition - problem is the clutch. Next time husband will verify problem before ordering parts.

Changing the belt didn't solve anything. We took the console apart and there is a Troubleshooting Guide folded up in there. It has a Code List and a sequence to follow to determine the trouble codes. While there was nothing wrong as far as coding, it did lead us to confirm the discharge pump WAS working, even though there was no water coming out. The discharge hose was plugged.
