Noticed 3 straps were broken when we replaced the hose

  • Customer: Christine from Tempe, AZ
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Socket set
  • 11 of 13 people found this instruction helpful
I removed the front cover, then unscrewed the top to expose the top. There are two screws that hold each strap, which turns out are different sizes, so I had to use two different sockets. I also had to remove the hose & plastic tube for the bleach. Once that was done, the replacement was easy, I replaced all 4 straps, reconnected the tube for the bleach, screwed the top back on and snapped the front cover into place. This took maybe 30 minutes - and I am female!

My husband was unavailable and already overloaded, so I took a screw driver and removed the front cover of the washer. After I discovered where the leak was coming from, I used a screw driver to remove one end of the hose and pliers to remove the other end. I went online, found the part and ordered it. It came in surprisingly fast. My husband put it back in about 5 minutes.

Purchased used washin machine w/o drain hose

  • Customer: Daniel from Oxford, GA
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Socket set
  • 9 of 9 people found this instruction helpful
After realizing I had purchased a used washing machine without a drain hose I thought I would never find one, but then I found partselect.com. After easily locating the part on the web site from the detailed diagrams and model number I then ordered it. Receiving the part quickly I used a socket to remove the plastic connector that prevents the hose from disconnecting once the washer is turned on. I fed the hose through the plastic connector and into the drain hole without any issues. I then used my one small socket to secruely fasten it back together. There was no additional tools or items needed to successfully attach the washer drain hose.

Only took 2 days to ship. Took the screws out of the bottom rear panel to gain access to bottom of tub. Next pushed the two hidden tabs with flat screwdriver in the front to gain access to the top of tub, they are located straight inline with each side of the washer lid in seam between the top panel and the front side panel of washer. Then installed the new suspension rod and reassembled. You can find online videos that show how to disassemble appliances if you're not sure how to get them apart for repair. My first appliance repair was easy to do and saved a lot of $$$ vs paying for repair or purchasing a new unit.

Took front panel off the washer and found the pump working but no water drained from the tub. Took the motor off the washer by removing the two 10mm screws and attaching hoses. Decided to take the motor apart and found the propeller shaft has broken off inside the pump. Ordered new motor from Partselect and replaced it. Washer is working fine now.

It was almost a complete tear down. Most difficult part was discivering how to remove the front panel. Slip a putty knife between the top and front covers. push and depress the spring tab on each side. The left hand nut on the hub was difficult. I had to get a neighbor to hold a large pair of pliers while I put a pipe wrench on the nut and hit it with a 2 lb. hammer in order to break it loose. Puting it back together do not forget to reconnect the level sensing hose to the level selector, I did. Machine will not perform without it. You can do it! I did.

Washer stopping during cycles

  • Customer: David from Glenside, PA
  • Difficulty: Easy

  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Screw drivers

First, I removed the control knob by pulling it out and then used needle nosed pliers to pull the plastic retainer clip from the back side of the knob and then slid it off. I then removed the large dial knob by simply pulling it off. Next, I removed the 4 torx head screws holding on the front control panel and the whole panel came off (the 4 screws are on the top side of the panel towards the rear). I then removed the connector block from the timer mechanism and then removed the single hex nut screw which holds the timer in place. There are two plastic tabs on the bottom of the timer which fit into slots on the panel. You can simply lift the old timer mechanism out by pulling it up and out. The new timer is installed by doing this in reverse. You then tighten the hex screw and then put the connector back on the new timer. You can then put the panel back in place and put back the 4 screws taken out earlier. Next, you push the indicator dial onto the timer shaft (lining up the notch in the dial with the tab on the timer shaft). Finally, you pull the retainer clip on the control knob partially out, push the knob on the timer shaft and then using a screwdriver, push the retainer clip into place and then push the control knob all the way onto the timer shaft.
