CustomerJenessa from Tacoma WA

Lid lock assembly broke

The Lid Lock Assembly came super fast! The install would have been flawless, but the "pre-drilled" holes on the new Lid Lock Assembly were way to small. We found that out after we had reconnected the wires and gotten it into place. Aside from that small set back, the install went great! This repair is definitey not one that you would need to pay a repair person to do!

CustomerTabatha from Fort Sam Houston TX

Washer would not drain or spin

removed the two screws on the back of the washer that holds the washers top down. Then lifted it up. Unplugged the electrical from the part (made sure to note where they came from). Then unscrewed the two screws, plugged in the electrical, screwed the screws into the back. I am a stay at home mom and I fixed it in under ten minutes. (I also figured out what the problem was:) I had ordered a new washer, but after some research, I saved $1000!

CustomerMARC from MANALAPAN NJ

Washer machine would fill up with water and not spin and drain

Happened to slam the lid by mistake and the washer started spinning. Recognized the lid lock was working haphazzardly. Also, there was a burning type odor coming from the switch. So I lifted the lid top and disconnected the switch from the lid by unscrewing 2 screws and 4 wires. When I received the new switch, I reinstalled it with 2 screws and reconnected the 4 wires.
