Unhook water lines after shutting off water, unplug power cord.Then move washer out into open space for easy access. Used flat tip driver to push in the spring clip to open the top of washer.

After inspecting the brake and installing the new pulley/bearing kit the washer still would only spin slowly. Discovered that if the washer agitates at all in the spin cycle then the transmission is shot. So washer was replaced with a new one.

Watch the videos on it about replacing the snubber ring. Do not remove the whole assembly just loosen enough to get old snubber out and new one in, or you will find it very difficult to get the brake/clutch assembly back together Also I used a 2 x 4 scrap to push and hold the the barrel while removing the six springs. Wear long sleeves as the metal on the washing machine panels will cut you very easily. Belt was just sliding it over the pulley. One other recommendation is take a pictures before and while you are taking it apart for verification of reassembly.

The E clip (or C clip) is not easy to install!

I was struggling for more than an hour trying to put the E clip on with the thicker washer as recommended then gave it up. I tried again with the thinner washer and still can not get the clip fully seated in place (only one end got into the groove). Frustrated, I decided to tap the other end with flat screw driver and hammer. The clip seems to be deformed but rested in the groove. Checked the brake adjustment and it was on the min mark. I did not dare to remove it for adjustment, and there is no thinner washer to adjust anyway. The washer is still working OK now after 3 loads. Other than that I am really happy with the purchase. Supper fast shipping. Very helpful instruction video. Only I am not really a handy man as my wife often encourages!

Turned washer on it's side with the backside facing up. Pump had part of the pulley missing. The belt was replaced as a precaustion. I didn't disconect any of the water lines, just un plugged. Note I was amazed at how quick I received the parts. I expected to wait a week and received parts in 3 days. Execelent service.

everything pretty much just unbolted real easy. the parts come with a nice set of instructions. you don't need to use the special hub removal tool. just take a small piece of wood and smack it on the ear of the hub to the left counter clockwise. it might be tough but just keep smacking it till it comes loose. then install it in reverse. simple job. you also might need some big vise scrips to get ahold of the springs real good to get them off and back on...

I found the instructions on www.ehow.com about how to remove the shell of the washer so I could find what was going on with the washer and why it would smell like burning metal. I found it was the Drain Pump with Pulley Assembly P/N: PS2347187. It was easy to replace and saved $$$$ from having to purchase a new washer or call a repairman or women.
