Would not agitate

First, I purchased the lovejoy coupling and replaced it, all of the interlocking pins were broken. I suspect that occurred when my wife washed the comforter. Started up the machine and started to smell like the motor was overheating. Also the machine was making a lot of noise (screeching) when it went into spin cycle, so I purchased the clutch. For both repairs I watched the videos and they were spot on and easy to follow. Recommend laying down the washer when replacing the lovejoy coupling, as that was a little tricky trying to do that with the unit upright. The guy in the video must have done that a thousand times to line the up the holes and the pins! Washer is working like a brand new machine!

Won't spin clothes properly. They were wet

Removed bolt from agitator assembly. Pulled up on the agitator vane and removed it.
tipped over macvhine . Drained water from tub via the drain hose assemble and removed clips from the hoses to the pump atached to the motor and drained residual water from the lines. Removed the electrical connector attached to the motor assembly and the three bolts holding the motor assembly and shaft to the tub and slid the shaft and assembry out.. Took digital photo of the assembly to insure proper part replacement and removed the clips and spring that are part of the assembly that holds on the clutch. Removed the old assembly and installed the new assembly . Installed the spring and retaining clip that came with the kit and installed the shaft . Installed the three bolts holding the/motor assembly and shaft in place and reconnected the hoses to the pump assembly and reconnected the electrical connector. Uprighted the washer and everything worked like new when I tested the spin cycle. I was quoted $225 to fix the bad clutch from the appliance tech that I paid $20 to diagnose the problem . Saved about $175 by doing it my self and it wasn't hard to do. My thanks to the previous persons that had done the repair and left iinstructions on how to do it.

Tub would not spin

Removed the agitator. Then removed the nut holding the agitator shaft. I set the machine on its side. Working from the bottom, i removed the three bolts which hold the transmission/motor. I removed the wiring. Pulling the unit down and out of the shaft bearing. The clutch assembly is on the transmission/motor unit shaft. Remove the snap ring and retaining ring for the shaft. Replace the clutch unit in the reverse order. The hardest part to replace is the retaining ring on the shaft. Pay close attention on how everything comes apart and you won't have any problems. Saved myself a lot of money.

Washer would not always spin during spin cycle - motor would run, but no spin

I washed the Youtube videos from Partselect website and read the comments from others which provided significant help in approaching the repair. However, I didn't follow the video precisely. There is no need to remove the control panel nor the front housing. All you need to do is tip the washer on it's back, remove the nut from the agitator & remove the agitator assembly (careful, there is a plastic piece and a clip that goes over the shaft, remove that too), remove the pump, remove the bolts for the motor housing and remove the entire motor/shaft assembly. Now you can replace the clutch and direct drive motor coupling, etc. My problem was with the clutch, but for an extra $13, I replaced the direct drive motor coupling as well. My first time took me about a hour, but could do it again in less than 30 minutes. Outstanding help/support provided by the Partselect website. All were very happy the washer was fixed and I we probably saved a few hundred dollars by doing it myself.

The washing machine started smoking and stopped agitating.

I followed the you tube video provided when I ordered the parts. It was all I needed to make the repair. It was simple. It saved me the cost of a new washing machine. I would highly recommend it. In fact I am ready to order more parts to fix a Kitchen aid mixer.

The washer was slow would not go into the spin cycle..

All I had to do was follow the instructions on your web site and it was pretty easy.. The only reason it took so long was because my washer is in a spot hard to get to... I had to remove the dryer to get to the washer and then take it out of the laundry room to work on it. Other than the time it took to do that the actual repair only took 40 minutes. Your video of the repair was excellent... Thanks so much.. Saved at least $500 by replacing the clutch...
