Inner tub base hub disintegrated

I had to take the washer outside since there was no room to work on it in the laundry room. The extra space allowed me to spread out the parts, use the garden hose to clean and have light enough to take digital pics of the wiring before I disconnected them to remove the upper panel.

Removing the upper retaining ring for the tub was simple with only 4 screws. The agitator pulled right up and out. The nut cover/agitator anchor removed easily with one bolt.

The tough part was the inner tub base hub nut that I could not get off. Another user had commented on how they had to chisel the nut off and that was the best advice. I used my air chisel on either side of the nut and it was pretty quick to get off - within 3 min. If I hadn't read that I wouldn't have ordered another nut to replace the one I chiseled off.

The diagrams and repair stories really made the difference. Cleaning and reassembling was done within about an hour - cleaning the 11 years of soap scum at least an hour total before and after replacing the parts.

Basically, I just followed the instructions in the video that is posted on this sight. It went off without a hitch. Removed the screws from the control panel, lifted it up and out of the way. Then I used the putty knife to release the clips that hold the front panel in place and then removed the top of the washer. Pretty easy from there to swap out the dampening straps and reassemble the washer. Saved a lot of money doing it myself.

Washer stopping during cycles

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.

Cold water would continue to flow even when it was supposed to stop.

Just used hands to pry open the old agitator from the washer. If one angle does not work try another and go in a clockwise direction. The new agitator had a new coupling at the bottom, so I needed something to push it out from the top, found a long metal rod and easily pushed it down and out. Verified that new coupling was exactly the same as the old one. The old one was good so I just pushed the new agitator down on the old coupling and it worked fine.

I noticed the belt was off, first, then pulled it back on. Washer worked, but very noisily, as belt continued slippage. I bought new belt after reading how to repair, then when it arrived, I read how someone installed it without having to remove bolt, etc. I tried and succeeded. It agitates just fine, but stalls when spinning. It's like the belt is too tight, now. i am gonna try rotating the rotating parts to see if that will help loosen it.
