Disassembled top control console and surrounding sheet metal cabinet per the video from this site. i then used a screw driver to carefully pry up each wear pad location individually and inserted the wood wedge. to about 1 1/2 inch height. rwmoved the old wear pads and popped in the new pads one by one. Closed up the unit and tested the machine . It ran like new. No more noise or viberation

Followed the video. Removed the case and holder clips (not really needed) and replaced the springs. It did nothing to stop the problem and there are no more fixes.

Washer would not spin

Based on all the other info here, I thought "ah-ha! I need to replace the clutch assembly". So I ordered the part, it came the next day (to Vermont, even!) and started to disassemble the agitator, motor, etc. just as shown in the video. I don't think I would have attempted it if it had not been for the video. It made the process seem very straightforward and easy, as long as you are comfortable using a socket set.

That said, there were some fairly minor differences between my machine and the one in the video, so your repair might differ a little. First of all, I did not need one of those spanners / tub wrenches (whatever they called it in the video-- the thing he hit with the sledge hammer) to take off that nut under the agitator. I didn't need to remove it, and the drive axle just pulled right out. Second, you really don't need to remove the motor mount. Just take the motor off, and then go right to removing the three bolts on the transmission.

Actually, my problem turned out to be NOT the clutch assembly, but the little plastic gear things that go between the motor and the transmission, fitting into that rubber ring thing. I lifted the motor off and one of them was sitting there in pieces! You can easily order this part, and it's even easier to install than the clutch assembly. The plastic pieces are reinforced with metal now, which seems like a good idea.

All in all, this was a fun little project, and now I am under the (probably false) impression that I can repair any problem with washing machines!

clothes remain soaking wet after wash cycle

The video was well made and made repair easy. I like the fact the video also showed how everything went back. The most difficult part and most time consuming for me was putting the washer cabinet or housing back on. I had a hard time lining the sides onto the slot to lock in place....the minor cut on finger sustained during the process was worth it. It saved me from buying a new washer and the whole family are happy that they don't have to wring out the clothes before putting it the dryer. Thank you!

The machine would cycle properly all the time.

I read the experiences of others on this site and determined that the problem was probably the lid switch. Used others experience in taking the panel off and removed the old switch and inserted the new one. The post to be sure to have the lid open was good and probably saved me some time. Overall, the fix was simple and the problem appears to have been solved. The lid switch got here the day after I ordered it and that was great service. Better than paying for a service call or new washer.

I had to find a point of reference first since item came apart in wash cycle and internal pieces fell out - thank goodness for YOUTUBE. Another guy was thoughtful enough to do a video on how the assembly came apart / went back together - a huge help for sure. Actual repair was less than a half hour after obtaining new part and seeing video. The 12 year old washer works like brand new - saving me close to 1,000 dollar replacement charges.

the tube when spinning the tub would shake so bad the washer would walk away from the wall but it will not happen anymore since I put the new spring on it runs great and this is not my first rodeo. Removed the outer part to timer controls then removed two screws then shell in front came off the body

Purchased lid trigger elsewhere but got the connector on line here after being told I would need to purchase complete wiring harness to correct. Once lid trigger was in i stripped the three wires that went to lid trigger and pushed thru the back side of the connector. Then I plugged into trigger. Now washer works again. Very easy to do.

We had to take the motor off and find the part that holds the spring, took longer to fix as we are older people and took a brake after every spring. We used YouTube videos to help us I am thankful for this site and cheap prices.

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!

basket won't spin at all

First I purchaseda new drive coupler and replaced it. Still the drum did not spin. Then I ordered a new clutch but this time when I disassembled the unit I ran power to it after removing the water pump I turned it on and the motor and basket now spun. I found out the water pump was seized so I brought it to my work bench and examined it. When I looked inside I saw a foreign object stuck in the impeller. I took needle nose pliers and worked it out. It was actually a baby's sock from my grandsons recent visit. How it got behind the drum and into the drain hose I have no idea. Once the water pump was freed up, the entire problem was fixed.

Washer would not spin fast.

I watched the how to video and it was very helpful. I followed all the steps as described although I did not take the cabinet off , I just laid the unit down on the back with a couple towels behind it. the only thing that was a little bit hard was hooking the back clamp on the pump. If you hook the back clamp before putting the pump back on it is much easier.
