I bought a new door lock for 132 dollars (item number PS2037196).Ultimately you have to get to the inside of the machine where the door lock is located in order to see if you will need this door lock that I bought.DISCONNECT POWER FROM MACHINE.First take off the top by taking off the 2 screws on the back of the machine.Second take off the control panel, I believe there are about 5 or 6 screws for that.(there's also a screw when you open up the detergent compartment on the bottom left- also, a lever must be pushed in order for the compartment to come off- it MUST be taken off).Third unscrew the top of the front white plate.. there should be a 5 or 6 screws for that.You don't need to take off the entire front plate.Finally unscrew 3 screws that hold the door lock in place .. make sure your hands is in the machine- the back of door lock to catch the lock when you're on the last screw.Gently take out the door lock from the side with the cables attached by holding the white metal door open (it bends).Try to pull on the bottom of the door lock (its a manual release). If it doesn't release you need to buy a new door lock like I did... if it does release then you don't need a door lock and just reassemble. (Note: You can also try plugging in the machine and THEN pulling down on the manual release. When I tried this the door lock just vibrated and nothing happened so I bought a new door lock.)If you have the new door lock continue here:Take out all 3 cables on the old door lock by pressing on the corresponding clips. Attach the new door lock with the correct cables. Assemble machine back together.Thats it.
The repair was very simple I also broke the door latch when this happen as well to get the water out of the drum. Both components were very simple to replace and took less than a hour. My order was deliver very promply even a day earlier than I expected. Everything was correct and the price was well below any price I could find in town or on any other web site. I hope I never need anything else for this equipment but if I do this will be my first choice for the parts purchase. Thanks, Jason Frost,Texas
Had to take the entire front of the washer off to replace the door latch.
Peel rubber gasket from drum; remove 3 screws using phillip head screwdriver; disconnect wiring e plugs; remove door lock. Install in reverse order.
Pull washer away from wall and find two screws in back next to top edge. Undo and pull top of machine off (lip on fron edge under face cover). reach down and unplug three plugs on door latch small one on top, biggest on bottom. Unscrew the three screw holding the latch on the front of the machine, take out the old and put in the new. Note, I pluged in the plugs before screwing the new one in place, and that might be easier. Put the top back on.I couldn't find any way to adjust the door, so you still have to lift it up when closing.
The best way to do it is not the way I started. The best way is to 1st remove the bellow's front clamp with a small screwdriver at the spring. 2. unplug the 3 sets of wires attached to the lock. 3. remove the 3 screws on the front that hold the lock. 4. remove the plastic ribbon harness that attaches to the lock. 5. remove the old lock. 6. install the lock back carefully moving aside the cables. 7. install the 3 screws. 8. attach the ribbon harness. 9. attach the cables. 10. replace the bellow. 10. replace the clamp (here you may need someone's help to keep the rubber in place.) 11. the last part to fall in place is where the spring is. 12. If you can't do all by tact then you may want to remove the 3 screws from the top cover to be able to c where all fits.
Removed the washer tub gasket and then removed the door part that I order . It was real easy to replace it and the tub gasket . Took about 8 min to complete everything .
It takes 2 people to do this repair.The bellow is the hardest part. One person has to hold the bellow in one spot, and the other person has to put it on the rim of the drum all the way around. Sort of like putting a tire on a bicycle. Dont do what I did and pry the door open. If you do that you will have to get a new door lock control at $54.Take off the lower front panel and reach up to the manual releace tab on the right side and pull down. Please make sure that the power is turned off, unplug the washer from the wall for your safety. The door switch itself is easy to replace, 3 screws, 3 plugs. Hope this helps.
removed all the panels to change the door latch switchplug in three plugs ...works greatThank you
First I removed the retainer ring and then pulled back enough of the boot to get the door switch out and plugged in the new switch put the retainer ring back on and it was finished. With out the repair book I would have been lost on how to do the job.
very easy fix. works great and good price on parts
1)I removed the bottom front panel,reached up the right side of the machine and pulled the manual release on the bottom of the latching mechanism.2)I then removed the top to the machine in order to gain access to the latch. 3)I removed three electrical connectors then the three mounting screws using a #15 Torx driver. I then reversed the reverse procedure to install the new latch. total time to do the job was less than half an hour. Machine works OK.
Took off bottom panel by removing 3 torx screws. Opened up door seal, removed three latch retaining screws, unplugged three wiring harnesses. Installed new latch and reinstalled in reverse order.
1. water inlet valve the one shipped had 1 screw and a hose clamp. very easy, however, the wrong valve was shipped to me for my product but it was a 5watt selenoid so i hadto turn it upside down so the outlet nozzle was facing the right direction putting selenoids upside down. It works but the nozzle is quite a bit larger and i've had my washer overfill with water a couple times. I beleive its probably beecause the water is metered by time to open selenoid and the larger water output nozzle is just letting to much water in for the time allowed I'd like to return this part and get correct replacement it will probably remedy this issue. 2. door lock latch did not fix the problem. Once I finally foun d the correct manual online, after i installed new lock :( , it is a feature of the washing machine to keep small children from starting the machine you can somehow set the" control lock" feature on the machine. it is disabled by pressing the drain/spin button for 3 sec. and all the buttons started working again. I dont know how it got enabled but you sure cant do laundry with the controls locked. so in summary, the selenoid did fix water entering tub but it's now overfilling because of nozzle size. :( and i would like to return it and get correct part. The door lock latch is fine but I cant return it because it is an electrical part:( I guess I should have purchased it from the other online repair/ parts website because they take back used electrical parts. I used your site because it was cheaper, but I paid for shipping and they had free shipping but really costof part was rolled into a shipping charge so it would have been the same money. I would like to swap out the water selenoid if possible i realize door lock latch i will eat, so please respond and tell me if i can swap water inlet valve :) 405-818-7426 if there are any questions and I could give you some real helpful hints for your websites troubleshooting proceedures in particular for this machine. would help you and your customers immensly. I was really impressed with your response and shipping it arrived the very next day before noon WOW.
