Repair was done with the help of step by step insructions available on utube, just enter model# and the repair you need to do. One problem I had was new tub seal{GE part] was a little smaller in diamater than the seal I removed And still leaked when I first ran washer So I took it back out and used a sealer [Permatex Indian Head gasket shellac compound from auto parts store] as recommended by one of the the repair techs on utube and it sealed it perfectly, just let it set op for about three hours and nice and dry now

When I received the replacement part, I was shocked at the small size compared to original equipment. I doubt the new part will last 12 years which is how long the original lasted. I installed it anyway because I did not want to wait for a better one from some other company. The new part was easy to install, but was not worth the price because it surely will not last.

This site and buying experience WOWED ME!!! After realizing what happened, I searched how to open up a washer, since I had never done it before. My search brought me to your site, which had an excellent 'how to' video for my exact problem of replacing the pump! I ordered the part, which was delivered to my door in LESS than 24 hours! Unfortunately, there was undrained water in the washing machine so while undoing the clamps on the old pump, the water drained on my kitchen floor, so beware of that issue. Because of the positioning of the pump, the clamps were a little tricky to redo, but completed without too much difficulty. I also had to 'unplug' (with a coat hanger snake)the drain tube connecting the pump to the back of the washing machine so it could flow to the outside drain pipe. This was the best internet buying experience I have ever had! Thank you so much! I fixed a 15 year old washing machine for about $40.00!!! (And I am a 57 year old grandmother ;-) Woohoo!!!

We couldn't get a repair to come out - were told to buy a new because it would cost too much to fix. I did not agree. I pulled the agitator off and discovered it was not working and the agitator coupler was spinning. I ordered both and put them in myself. My washer now worked like new! All for less than $100. The service guy wouldn't eve come out for less than $175 and that did not include parts!

noisey, leaking water

  • Customer: Daren from Bloomington IN
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Socket set, Wrench set
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
My repair started by reading the reviews on partselect.com that helped me to understand my problem and then described how I can fix it myself. My washer was making a loud noise and leaking water right above the transmition. So I figured a bad bearing was causing the noise and the failing tub seal caused the leaking water. This was fourth time taking the washer apart since I have replaced the motor, tub hub, and agitator cone over the years. So I was familiar with the dismantling process which made the job alittle quicker. This job was the most extensive diamantling yet because the outer tub had to be removed and turned over to remove the motor and trans assembly to access the tub seal. What was really helpful was the instructions I found behind the control panel explained step by step on how to remove the parts. Reassembled and started washer, was still alittle noisy because some rust had formed on the trans parts from the water leak on it, but after a few cycles that wore off and now it is like normal again.
