I have been fixing appliances and a many other mechanical things since my early teens.
When I went to the CONTRACTOR’S store, they treated me like a young dumb kid that shouldn’t be allowed to buy repair parts, or the part is unavailable. Thanks to the Internet and places like PARTSELECT.COM, I can buy the parts I need and not have to call a shysters repairman to rip me off. PS.com provided me with the parts I wanted without disputing me. They also provide simple, clear, and to the point instructions for replacing the old parts. Even someone doubting their own ability can handle a complicated repair. PS.com not only has the major parts that fail, like motors, but also the little things like switches, knobs, trims, handles, seals, and all the other minor parts.

Agitator seperated from inside of wash drum

I had to find a point of reference first since item came apart in wash cycle and internal pieces fell out - thank goodness for YOUTUBE. Another guy was thoughtful enough to do a video on how the assembly came apart / went back together - a huge help for sure. Actual repair was less than a half hour after obtaining new part and seeing video. The 12 year old washer works like brand new - saving me close to 1,000 dollar replacement charges.

Agitater quit working.

I had the agitator apart when I ordered the parts. I found PartSelect online when looking for a source for parts. I didn't know anything about this company but thought I would try them. The parts person was friendly and helpful. The parts showed up just a few days later. I was surprised at such fast delivery. Even if I didn't know how to reassemble the agitator very thorough instructions were included.The repair was a success. I highly recommend this company and will use them again myself. Thank you so much. Rod Benjamin

Washing machine would not agitate.

I used a socket wrench to remove the bolt holding the agitator assembly together. Removed the assembly and replaced Upper Agitator, Agitator Agitator Repair Kit with new parts using the instructions enclosed. I did purchase extra Agitator Directional Cogs and a thrust spacer to have as spare. It was so easy a caveman can do it ;)

The top section of the agitator, that spins around, stopped working.

Removed the cap, removed the bolt, pulled off the top assembly off the agitator, removed the broken pieces of the old "Agitator Directional Cogs" and the "Thrust Spacer”, applied some lithium grease, and re-assembled it all in reverse order w/ the new parts...piece of cake.

NOTE the Agitator Repair Kit comes with a new Thrust Spacer and new Seal, Inner Cap. They are not listed on the parts in the Kit. I knew I had to replace them, therefore I purchased two extra parts. I now have a spare for next time when I can just order the cam dogs.
