Washer would not aggitate or spin

  • Customer: Bryan from West Saint Paul, MN

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

watched the repair video on u-tube and followed it. Had trouble separating the top agitator from the bottom agitator after removing it from the washer. I tapped the 4 white tabs on the top with a hammer and screwdriver. Top and bottom separated after that.

My washer leaked water in after wash cycle and cloths were wet after spin cycle. The cause of problem was defined in Parts Select trouble shooting guide. Replacement was just as the video described, except this model had two screws on front of control panel and the panel tipped back on hinges. Look at both sides of washers, so when you reinstall the body you know how it should look against the back panel. I didn't slide the whole washer body off, just tilted against a wall. Also, it's not necessary to get behind the washer, so the repair can be done in a tight laundry rooms like mine.

I noticed the top wasn't spinning. I took the cap off the agitator and looked inside it. Sure enough the directional clogs were broken. I had no idea what to do. I went online using my phone and discovered partselect.com With their wonderful help I was able to find out what part I needed and order it right from my phone. It only cost me $10 bucks to get it delivered to my house and it shipped in 3 days. I am 21 years old and this was my first washer. Thanks to part select I can keep my washer. Partselect saved me well over $150 dollars plus labor. I will definitely use partselect again!!!

Video's on parts select are a big help. Just followed the instructions. Only slight problem was the coupling's do not slide easily onto the shafts. I had to use a little lubricant and put a wood block across the opening and tap with a hammer. Maybe a little more than a tap. Also when I was ready to test the repair I found the washer would not stop filling. After much checking I found out on another repair site that the shutoff requires a certain water pressure to work properly. I hadn't opened the faucet fully. Once I did everything worked properly.

Removed the actuator cap which gives you access to the screw that holds the clutch dog assembly in place. Once the screw is removed the assembly lifts right out. The clutch dogs have a small retaining band that holde them in place. Once removed the dogs slip right out. Replace the old dogs and reverse the order of the removal process. Very easy.
