CustomerDexter from Milwaukie OR

Washer made a loud banging noise at end of spin cycle, leaked water and agitator seemed loose

After entering the model number of your appliance you will be taken to a page where all of the parts are displayed by sections. On that page about in the middle there is a heading called "Find Part By Symptom." I figured out from there which symptom the washer had and read what other people were saying and how they made the repairs. Basically I had three problem areas, Noise, Leaking and a problem with the agitator. I focused on the loud noise first and decided I needed to replace the clutch/brake assemblies. I found the clutch parts page and on that page there was a video on how to make this repair. This video is all you need to gain access to all moving parts located under the cabinet. Which ever part you are replacing, I recommend watching this video! After removing the console, back panel and cabinet then laying the machine on its back just as seen on the video, I had access to the water pump, motor, transmission and related clutch/brake parts. As it turned out I did not need the clutch/brake assembly but as a precaution and because the parts were cheap, I replaced the motor coupling, water pump and tub wear pads. I decided to replace the agitator assembly because of several worn parts associated with the dog ears/drive shaft ETC. I put the machine back upright and took off the top cap on the agitator, then there is an inner cap with seal that gives access to the 7/16" bolt you must remove to remove the agitator. However once the agitator was removed I noticed metal shavings and play in the shaft. I used a spanner wrench to remove the spanner nut. I removed the Plastic Tub Ring (has several clips around the outer tub), then removed the inner washer tub to replace the Drive Block. Replacing the Drive Block stopped the loud noise at the end of the spin cycle. Now just reverse the order to put the machine back together and your done. For my situation it was best to take the machine apart and decide which parts I needed before ordering to minimize errors. These machines are made very cheaply and are designed to brake at some point in time and it is very easy to determine which parts are worn because most are made of plastic. In this process I also noticed where my leaks (did I say Leaks) were coming from. There were two hose clamps installed improperly from the factory, so check all clamps, hoses ETC. and you should be good to go.

Agitator was not working properly due to broken plastic pieces in agitator

First I removed the top of the agitator and then used a socket and ratchet to unscrew the bolt and put the new one on and tightened up the bolt, real easy.

Upper agitator would not turn

First I removed the fabric softener dispenser. I removed the inner cap seal and agitator retaining bolt. Then I firmly pulled up on the agitator to remove the complete agitator assembly. I replaced the inner cap seal and installed the new agitator bolt with rubber washer. I placed the new agitator assembly on the drive shaft and tightened the bolt. Lastly I installed the inner seal and the fabric softener dispenser. The total time spent was around 10 minutes.

CustomerLinda from Enola PA

Two fold: Agitator slipping, washer delays spin cycle untill lid is raised and dropped.

First repair was easy, remove center bolt, pull up on agitator and replace entire unit as one piece, replace bolt and liquid dispenser.

Second repair was more difficult in that I could not immediately find the release to remove timer control. After removing 5 screws unnecessaryily and studying unit more closely, tried prying up on little tab that has a "+" symbol on it that locks into a little hole. While holding up on that tab, slide timer unit sideways and unit falls out of washer panel. Simply slide the new unit in and it locks in place.

Also the directions to remove the knob were convienently printed on the orginal and replacement timer, but an ARROW pointing to the black tab on rear of the timer control would be helpful as I mistook the tab to be on the front side under the knob from studing the replacement and tried to pull the smaller inter knob off in order to push it in to release the larger outside knob portion in order to disconnect the timer. No harm done, eventually figured it out, but it still didn't fix the problem. As the washer will EVENTUALLY go in the spin cycle without picking up and dropping the lid, I'm assuming the lid switch is defective, although it appears to work otherwise. Any other possible soulutions appreciated.

CustomerDavid from Mission Viejo CA

Top half of agitator not working

Although this was listed as 'a bit difficult' and talking a bit longer than normal, this was because the agitator cap had leaked, and over time the agitator bolt had become completely rusted such that a socket simply couldn't fit. Due to the tight confines, I also could not get a needle-nose vise-grip to hold on to the nut, so attempted to drill out the bolt. This ended up being a problem, but it turns out that drilling AROUND the edge of the bolt and through the edge of the plastic allowed me to remove the top of the agitator, which then allowed a normal pair of vise-grips to be used to remove the bolt. Once the bolt is removed, everything simply fell into place, and the overall job 'should' have only taken a couple of minutes and been 'really easy', except for that rusted-out bolt.

CustomerCheryl from Russiaville IN

The washer was not agitating

I removed the Softner dispenser and used a socket wrench to remove the entire agitator. Then replaced it with the new one. It was so worth doing it myself. I cost us about $50.00 and that would have been the cost of having a service call. without parts and labor. I was thankful that it was an easy job and one that I could figure out. It saved us a ton of money. Since I don't know the names of any of the parts on this machine, it was nice to have pictures that go along with the parts online. It allowed me to order the correct part.
