The video is very good. I have a stacked unit and didn't want to remove the dryer. It was difficult (but not impossible) to get the pins removed and replaced. I made a removal tool by drilling a 15/32" hole into the end of a 1"x1" piece of wood. Taping on this closed the pin safety and pushed it out.

The video was helpful and gave good ideas to look for, it was harder to reach the pins holding each end. I used a 6-8 inch dowel rod to remove and replace the plastic pins. First time always takes longer than advertised but I wasn't in a big hurry.

Error Code E43 - door lock problem - no spin

Removed retaining band around door boot and prized-off boot on left side to access door lock - simple screw driver replacement job. Deleted last error code. BUT - washer worked again for several days, and now code E43 is back and won't spin - problem is intermittent - so suspect it is NOT the door lock, but a wiring or control board problem. Ongoing.

You must remove the top of the washer with screws on rear of washer. Top slides forward to remove. Once top is removed you can reach door lock mechanism from the top. Two screws must be removed from the front of the washer where lock enters mech. You can grab the mechanism from above by the wires that run to it. Undo wiring harness and insert new mehanism. Slide into place and attach in the front of washer with screws. This job is easy and can save you a lot on repair bills!

Hi,
The repair should have been able to be completed by the repair team I called out from Sears. Their minimum charge was $109.00 and then whatever parts, etc… The TWO repairmen came in and looked at the front of the washing machine and promptly told me that they wouldn’t be able to fix the machine because they couldn’t find the model number. They were there less than 5 minutes. After they left without any suggestions on how to fix the washer door; I took to the internet, found the machine, ordered the parts and paid for them over the internet. It was a LOT less than the initial $109.00 that Sears repair were going to charge us. The repair took less than a half hour. The parts came just 3 days after I ordered. Used a screwdriver to remove worn out pieces and replace with new pieces. It couldn't have been simpler. You will be my source from now on.

The machine is very heavy. It was setup in a tight elevated drain basin on the top floor of the house. I could not move it off the drain basin onto the floor, so I built a platform and shifted the machine on to the platform. Once the machine was on the platform, I located an access panel on the back of the machine, removed it and found the pump. Part Select indicated that a drainage problem was probably the pump or the filter, so I bought both. I removed the pump and found a finishing nail had passed through the filter into the pump and jammed the pump's propeller. So, I replaced the jammed pump with the new pump. The existing filter seemed OK and a lot of trouble to remove, so I left it in place. I re-assembled the machine , pushed it back into place and it has worked ever since. Lessons learned: the clamps that hold the inlet and output hoses to the pump are really difficult to remove and replace without the right tool. Don't leave finishing nails in the pockets of your dirty work pants; be ware of very sharp edges on the bottom the machine and consider turning the machine over if you need to replace more than just the pump.

Door Strike Broken off in lock

  • Customer: Linda from Parkersburg, WV
  • Difficulty: Really Easy

The end of the door strike had broken off in the lock. The door strike itself went on in just a few minutes. The time consuming part was getting the piece that had broken off out. After trying with tweezers to get it out, we took the lock off the machine and finally got it out. So....if the door strike looks damaged or isn't shutting properly, replace it before it breaks off inside the lock. We were pleased with how quickly it came. We ordered it Sunday evening and it came Tuesday morning.
