Washer shakes violently in spin cycle

It took a lot of surfing the internet to find good web sites for information. One was part select . I removed the cabinet from the washing machine per instructions. Then I replaced the suspension springs. That was easy. Took about 10 minutes. However, it didn't fix the problem. So I decided to replace all the suspension pads without a total tearing down the unit. It was almost impossible to put the new ones in because they don't press in easily. One other thing, there are plastic cups with pins in them that look like they are missing cotter pins. After hours of searching. I found partselect.com
THESE ARE THE SHIPPING PINS THAT KEPT THE MACHINE FROM MOVING AROUND DURING SHIPPING. THEY TOOK THE COTTER PINS OUT AFTER SHIPPING. THEY ARE NO LONGER NEEDED. My story ends here because my machine is still shakes violently. I have offered my washing machine for parts on our local freecycle website so as to keep it out of the landfill.

Agitator not agitating

Remove Agitator cap and inner cap. Unscrew center retaning bolt. Lift out agitator assembly. Remove thrust washer and ratchet assembly. Install ratchet and thrust washer in top of agitator. Set agitator on shaft. Install and tighten center retainer bolt. Install inner and top caps. Load it up, and REALLY wash some clothes.
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

Agitator top not working

Followed the instructions in the package and was done in ten minutes or less. Simple to do. Agitates like new and was donated to a needy family. Thank you for the great service. Also the thrust washer is included in the Agitator repair kit so don't need to order one.

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.

Fifth: cleaned all parts not being replaced.
Sixth: broke off agitator base tabs as instructed.

Tenth: assembled upper agitator (auger), new seal on agitator bolt and tightened.

Twelveth: reinstalled the fabric softener cup.

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.

Agitatator of washer was faulty. Clothes only seemed to move gently back and forth and not up and down.

I removed the fabric softener cup and then removed the bolt holding agitator in place. Took off the top portion of the agitator, the auger, and removed loose broken pieces. Broke off agitator base tabs as indicated on installation instructions. Replaced dogs into slots of agitator cam. Replaced bearing as indicated and reassembled agitator. Instructions provided made the job, even for a novice, very easy to do. Very good service from this company. Will do business again with Parts Select.

CustomerPamela from Hudsonville MI

The top of the agitator wasn't going around

first you have to remove the cover to the agitator. then you have to remove the cap over the bolt. then remove the bolt and remove the agitator. the next part was very difficult - you have to seperate the top of the agitator from the bottom. there are two little clips that i ended up heating the end of a screw driver and melting them so i could pull it off. be very careful when pulling it off some people have hit themselves in the face (me!!) remove the dogs and retaining ring and replace. then put everything back together the in reverse order. we figure it would have cost us at least $150 for someone to come and fix this - it cost a little over $20.
