Washing machine squealed as it filled very slowly

Our washing machine "squealed" as it filled. Only the hot water did it, the cold water did not. The hot water came in real slowly, and the machine made a squealing noice and the hose going into the fill valve would vibrate. When I ordered the part, on my order confirmation email there was a link to a video showing how to replace the fill valve. It literally took my less than 30 minutes to replace the part. The only thing that was different on my machine was the screws holding the controls on. Mine were hidden under a plastic cover on the front that I had to snap off. Other than that slight difference in screw location, everything in the video matched up perfect with my machine. With the new fill valve the machine fills in 1/2 the time. We hadn't really noticed how slow it was filling until the squealing noise started. After changing the valve, the difference in fill rate was very apparent. I'm sure the 15 year old valve was full of sediment and minerals. Works like new now.

Washer spun at about a quarter speed

  • Customer: Mike from Powell, OH
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers, Socket set, Wrench (Adjustable)

The spin cycle was super slow leaving clothes soaking wet at the end of a full wash cycle. Ordered a clutch repair kit, watched the how to video that was e-mailed to me with my order while I did the repair and got it done in about 45 minutes. This was my first true appliance repair outside of maybe a busted fuse or replacing the heating element in a stove. Never thought taking the motor, transmission and clutch out of the washer and putting all back together would be so very simple. Meanwhile my wife is pissed because she thought she might be able to go get a brand spankin new washer...until I fixed the old one. Thanks for saving me some dough PartSelect.

Water drains but tub does not spin

I chose to replace the Direct Drive Motor Coupling before replacing the lid switch because of cost and I like to see how things work. Hint: If the tub does not spin and water does drain, replace the lid switch first. That was the root problem. If you do replace the Direct Drive Motor Coupling, watch the video provided by PartSelect. The video saved hours of tinkering around. Follow the video instructions to the point of tipping the unit over to replace the coupling. There is about a quart of water in the unit even after the drain hose is removed. Either move the washer outside before doing the replacement or locate a sturdy pan to allow water to spill into as you tip the unit over. Lucky for me, there were some dirty towels waiting to be washed that were used to soak up the water. When you replace the coupling, tamp down the replacement piece that goes onto the transmission shaft with a large dowel and hammer. If the motor does not easily go back onto the shaft and you cannot turn the motor by hand, you need to tamp the replacement part down some more. The part ordered was correct and on-line instructions were very helpful.

Basket Not Spinning during Spin Cycle

  • Customer: George from Pittsburgh, PA
  • Difficulty: Easy

Took apart machine exactly as described in the Direct Drive Motor Coupling Replacement Partselect video. Once I lifted out the motor it was clear that the motor coupling was at least part of the issue because it was in place but broken in pieces. I replaced the 2 plastic couplings and the rubber piece and put the machine back together, as described in the video. Afterwards, the spin cylce worked great, quiet and fast as ever. Very happy I did this myself I'm pretty sure I saved a few hundred bucks vs. a repair tech coming to the house. Note that the new couplings require some tapping in order to sink into place.

Washer would not aggitate or spin

I watched the how-to video twice and the repair was just like it. My only tip would be to have a pan or floor drain nearby to empty the drain hose prior to tipping the machine on its back.

every time we ran the washer there would be a small pooling of water underneath. a little investigation indicated a leaking pump seal.

My son and I leaned the washer backward and I had my son hold it while I got underneath of it and unscrewed the two hose clamps to loosen the hoses, pulled them off. Then I flipped the two clamps holding the pump in place and the pump came right off and it took about 2 minutes. I ran into a little problem putting the new pump on because I wasn't getting the drive shaft lined up quite right, otherwise the whole thing would have only taken about 10 minutes total. As it was I got the pump mounted, repositioned the clamps and then hooked up the hoses...done! The design is perfect for ease of pump replacement; kudos to the engineers who designed it!

move machine away from wall---shut off water and remove hoses--loosen screws that hold valve on back wall---remove toplid, place to side--diconnect water line at tub----disconnect wires to valve,hot/cold---remove old valve with hose attached---take new valve and place new mount bracket on, little tricky did not line up at first must force plate to slid into plastic slot so screw hold lines up, without breaking new valve---once bracket on replaced all---used tape on inlet valves thread when supply hoses replaced--seems shorter than old valve--but tighten up OK no leaks
