Replaced what appeared to be damaged front Suspension Rod and spring, but that didn't help. May have to check if back ones need to be replaced. Tub still leans to the left.

Clothes were still Wet after Spin Cycle and I could smell something burning like Electrical type smell.

  • Customer: Mark from Keithville LA
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Socket set

Unfortunately this did not solve my problem. After further inspection I still have the burning smell and the washer cuts off after it Agitates for a few seconds then in a minute or so it will Agitate a few more seconds and then cut off again. I also replaced the control panel still have the same problem. I would say it is the motor but the motor works fine in Spin Cycle. As for the Pump replacement it is very simple just follow the instruction Video on this site and 15 minutes later your new pump is installed. I will keep the pump since my new Washer uses the same part. P.S. The burning smell is not coming from the belt. It's almost like some kind of circuit protector is tripping and then a few minutes later it lets the washer start again.

washer kept filling, won't aggetate

I replaced the water level pressure switch but that did not fix the problem. I tried to replace the pressure tube with some rubber tubing from the hardware store but that did not fix the problem. I replaced the tubing with the correct pressure tubing for PartSelect and now it seems to be working fine. I think the old tubing had a small leak in it I could not detect and the hardware tubing was not exactly the same as the manufacturer part. Anyway it was still a lot cheaper than a new washer. Thanks for the parts and the videos, you made it a do it yourself job. John

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.

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.

Unplugged power cord and shut off water supply. Then removed both water hoses from the dual water inlet value using adjustable pliers. Next removed four (4) star screws on top of the control panel. This required the purchase of a #20 Torq Screwdriver from Sears costing $3.99 plus tax etc. Once the top panel lifted upward and to the left I was able to unplug both electricle connections on the water inlet vlaue. Next unscrewed two Phillips head screws holding the water inlet value in place. Installed the new water inlet value in reverse of above. Time to complete was 22 minutes. Very easy repair to accomplish.
