Easy to remove broken part. Found rust, so after cleaning I applied paint (I let dry overnight). By manipulating the washer drum, moving left and right, the screws were easy to get to. However, to get the screws back in took tightening by strong hands. Plus, found that the lid sensor had worn out, so that was adjusted.New screws would probably make the job easier.All is fantastic and I found it was "easy" to replace with finishing help from strong hands.
Remove two screws holding a special clip on the back of the washing machine (near top- one on each side). Top of washing machine pops off now by prying front edge up (2 snap type clips hold front edge of top down). Once top is loose just pivot it up on edge so you can get to the bottom side of it (don't have to remove the wires etc. as they are long enough for this). Remove one screw in each hinge half located on bottom side of washing machine top and remove old hinge half from top. Remove broken hinge halves from door to washing machine by removing one screw from each one. Put new hinge halves together and fasten to door. Then set entire hinge/door assembly on washing machine top and screw to top as an assembly. Snap top of washing machine back down on front of machine and put clips/screws back in on back of machine.
Not knowing what I was doing, I just started taking the machine apart. Finally, turned the machine on it side and found the belt barely holding together and I was not able to move it. When I removed the belt I discovered that the discharge pump was stuck. Therefore, I also removed it. Everything else seemed to work. When I order the new pump along with a belt, I was glad to see the description of the pump included the pulley. When the parts came they where exactly what I needed and I was able to install them quickly and but the machine back together with out have any extra parts left over.
I had my son remove all of the old hardware with an allen-key wrench. He then proceeded to install the new hardware. Fisrt he installed the pins on the lid. Next, he installed the hinges to the washer, leaving each hinge loose. Finally adjusting the lid until the screws for the hinges were completely tightened.
push the washer tub as far as you can and use a long screwdriver to take hinge off,do the same for other side. Lid will then be removed for access to hinge pin,remove hinge pin and reverse process. Very easy repair. Very fast delivery from PartSelect.
