agitator was not agitating

The agitator is the tough thing to remove, I took a previous posters advice and used a rope and 2 boards to pull it up. I will describe it as many short ropes but it can be done without cutting the rope if you think a lot about it. loop the a rope under the agitator so its under 1/2, loop another rope under the other side. tie both loops so you can slide a board in each across the top of the washer. Then tie the 2 loops together on 2 sides down near the bottom of the agitator otherwise they will come out from under it when you pull. then slide the boards in the loops and lift up pulling up the agitator.That is the hard part. Remove the bolt on the coupling, and pull it off. The new one had to be lightly hammered on with a rubber mallet, then use the new bolt. the Agitator slide down and with a push down it popped on. Putting the new part on only took 15 min, removing the broken one took about 45 min. Washer is woking great now ! Saved over $100 or buying a new washer !

Washer would not pump out

Took the front cover off and tapped the motor on the old pump with the end of a screwdriver. The pump immediately started pumping,so, I knew it was the problem. Ordered the new pump and motor from PartSelect and received it in 2 days. Removed the old assembly and replaced it with the new one in less than 30 minutes per the video instructions on PartSelect's website. Wife is happy :) and I saved at least $100 bucks, probably more. Btw, a local appliance dealer where I bought the washer, wanted $63 for the pump/motor assembly and said it would take 4-5 days to get it. I paid $42 including shipping from PartSelect, and received it in 2 days!

We discovered water on the floor every time we washed clothes and hoped it wasn't the tub or something more structural. Luckily, it was just a busted drain hose. Went to the local home improvement stores and couldn't find the right part. Found PartSelect online and found it easily. From order to receipt took three days...from box to installation < 10 minutes.

Replaced pump. New pump same manufacturer and model, but better built; however, base plate not same, requiring that I swap it for the original. Also, pump suction inlet is straight-in, whereas original has 90 degree connection. Disconnect power, and remove old pump. Purchase a 1 1/2" I.D. auto radiator hose, cut off use the 90 degree bend; it's a perfect fit to pump conn.; use a 1" PVC coupling on other end socket to mate to the washer drum convoluted drain hose socket. Throw away the crappy original G.E. hard-to-use spring hose clamps and use stainless steel automotive type gear clamps instead. WARNING: Do not try to bend, stretch, or kink the rubber tub drain hose to fit up to the pump without installing an elbow; the installation geometry must be exactly the same as the factory-designed installation. To finish the job, power up and run the machine through several cycles with the front cover off to check for leaks. You will also see why the rubber drain hose must be reinstalled as described above. This washer does not ramp down speed when in the spin cycle, and when the motor stops, the drum makes a sudden 15 to 30 degree rotation, stretching the drain hose to it's limit. Finally, keep your hands out of the machine when it's running; the motor, belt, and transmission drive can cause some real damage if you get tangled up in them. Pay attention to what you are doing; if you are confused by my little dissertation, hire someone qualified to do the job for you.

My washer did not agitate. It would spin and the motor sounded like it was agitating.

I pulled the top of the agitator off (the softener dispenser) then pulled the agitator itself off. I had to pull with some force. I used the socket wrench to remove the bolt on top of the agitator coupling. I then pulled off the old agitator coupling, replaced it with the new part. Used the socket wrench to tighten the new bolt. Lined up the slots on the new coupling with the agitator top, it slid on with a little resistance. The last part to replace was the softener dispencer.

Washer would no longer spin---dry rotten belt

Gently turned washer over onto its front. Removed bottom metal panel (3 or 4 screws on each side). Removed old belt. Installed new belt. NOTE: The new belt is a tight and perfect fit, therefore it will not want fit on to both pulleys/ rotating discs. I have found the best method is to start the belt on the disc that drives the belt. Then place as much of the belt over the disc that sits below the washing machine drum as is possible(the spinning part)and then turn the belt by hand and the belt should pop on to the disc. If the belt goes on easily you may have the wrong belt as the belt must be tight to achieve the traction necessary for the washing machine to spin. HOPE THIS HELPS!! A screwdriver may be handy in helping to pry on the belt. Good look.

I googled "water not draining washer" and found a video made by Partselect.com on youtube on how to replace the water pump for a washer. So, I went to their website and punched in the model number of the washer and found the water pump I needed in stock. It said it takes an average of 1.8 days for delivery. I ordered it on a Sunday and by Tuesday I had the part delivered to my front door. That night after work, I went down to the washer which I already had sitting face down on the floor with the back peeled off and the pump out from the weekend so I could compare how it looked with the online pictures. The new part came already mounted on a new bracket so it was just a matter of installing the bracket and hooking up the intake and output hoses. In order to make my job easier in the tight space, I removed the drain hose from the bottom of the wash basin by squeezing the pressure clamp with a large pair of adjustable pliers. I then installed the other end of the drain hose to the pump itself. I then hooked out the end of the output hose to the other part of the pump that pumps out the water to the sink. I first removed the clamp on the back of the washer that held the output hose to the back of the washer. That gave me more leverage to move the pump around for the installation. Once both hoses were clamped onto the pump, I used a ratchet socket wrench to install the two bracket bolts directly onto the base of the inside of the washer in the same holes using the same bolts as the old pump. Once that was tightly installed, I Hooked the other ends of the two hoses to the bottom of the wash basin and to the back of the washer respectively. FInally, I connected the ends of the two wires into the clips on the pump in the same order as the original pump. One white one black. Finally I screwed in all the short sheet metal screws that held the back washing machine cover on. It was about 12 screws. I then installed the drain hose with the original bracket to the back of the washer. Satisfied that everything was installed tightly, I stood the washer up and then hooked the water hoses back up to the faucets and tightened them snugly with the large adjustable wrench to ensure it did not leak. I plugged the washer back in, hooked the drain hose to the sink and then filled the basin up partially. Moved the control to the drain mode, and the water came out wonderfully. Note, when the pump was broken, I was able to drain most of the water from the wash basin by lowering the drain hose the a bucket on the floor and letting gravity do the work of draining it. I had to fill the bucket several times and dump it into the sink, before I was able to drain all the water out and then lay the washer face down on the floor to remove the back of the washer. Thanks for the part and quick delivery. I saved a lot of money on repairs by doing it myself.

My washer was overflowing when filling. Stopped filling when i unplugged from wall so i knew it was the pressure switch because the tube was fine.

Pulled off agitator with little effort. One 7/16 bolt to remove and the coupler came right off. Pushed on new coupler, replaced with new provided bolt, pushed agitator back on and was back in business!! Very simple inexpensive repair. Thanks Partsselect for your quick parts turnaround!
