Another friend of mine did the repair.I watched him remove the old Drain pump and Motor Assembly and the Circulation Pump Motor.He installed the new parts in 45 to 60 minutes. The washer works like a new one. I had never ordered from Parts Select before. I was amazed how fast I received the new parts. Order placed on line on Friday , received the order at my home on Saturday afternoon.I will tell my friends about Parts Select and I will buy from them in the future.

Using a plastic putty knife, place between front panel and top lid to loosen lid and slide to rear. Remove lid and store aside. Hot and cold inlet valves sit side-by-side at top rear of the unit. Disconnect connector from valve by pulling gently away from valve plug prongs and place to the side. Using pliers, compress hose clamp and move to lower section of hose. Carefully rotate hose back and forth to remove from assembly. Inlet valve is held to washer body rear with 3 small Phillips screws. Remove first 2 and then while holding inlet valve body, remove final screw to free inlet valve assembly. Replace with new assembly by reversing these steps.Make certain when supply hose is reconnected, it is firmly tightened but DO NOT over tighten.

Very loud spin because of bad bearings.

  • Customer: Steven from Atlanta GA
  • Difficulty: Difficult
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers, Socket set

I first tried to replace just the tub bearings (and the shaft seal) but found it impossible to get the old bearings out of the old outer tub. Partselect.com made the return easy and I ordered the rear outer tub assembly, which includes bearings already installed. For the most part, you have to completely disassemble the washer, removing the entire outer tub. If I had to do it again, I would order a new seal for the outer tub as well. The hardest part is getting the tub back together inside the unit. It really helps to have a helper.

unplug washer and disconnect inlet and outlet hoses. drain water from washer (about 2 gallons) by removing lint screen from front of washer. lay washer on side (I used a blanket to avoid damaging the paint) remove all the phillips head screws in the plastic bottom and the metal feet of the washer. Gently pull the bottom of the washer off. There are 3 shock absorber looking things that pull apart and are greasy. Try not to mess with them much. Just pull gently, and they slide apart. cut the zip ties holding the wires to the washer bottom piece. remove the screw in the lint screen area and gently pull the recessed plastic thing out the front of the washer. remove the screws holding the pump assembly on the front of the washer. Remove the three screws holding the pump assembly on the outlet pipe manifold. Installation is the reverse of removal, take care to put the shock absorber looking things back in gently and together at the same time when reinstalling the plastic bottom of the washer.
