Washer would not spin or empty.

Followed the instructions I found inside the control panel after a repair man showed me where it was. He suggested I call and get the parts since his company said they were back ordered for 10 days. So I saved $250. 00.

Washer stopped during rinse cycle.

First I removed the front door. Then I removed the front of the washer. The wax motor is in the center at the top. Remove the clip that holds it in place. Slide the motor to the left and remove.
However, this was not the problem. The true problem was a plugged inlet screen where the cold water hose is connected. This makes for a long fill time during the rinse cycle, and the machine stops. Clean both of the inlet screens (cold & hot) and the machine works perfectly!

Door would not lock

I removed the cover above the washer and below the dryer (stackable washer and dryer). Removed the spring behind the wax motor and unhooked the wires. Then I pulled out the old wax motor and put the new one in.
