I pulled up PartSelect, compared their advice with my problem, ordered a direct drive motor coupling for my particular model, received the delivery, and called a friend who's good at home repairs and who happens to be dating my sister. He was delighted to comply with our request (her clothes get laundered here) and he had no problem with either the repair itself or the part we ordered. Replaced the hoses, too. He said the new part had been improved over the old one, but everything fit together just like it should. Then I washed her work jeans. Success! I know this isn't what you're asking, but I was so pleased to have the correct part ready to go so he didn't have to mess around. It wouldn't have taken the afternoon, but I had to clean everything that had accumulated debris in 10 years of use as he went.

Found this web site after reading forums on slow spins and I determined it was a clutch problem. Ordered the clutch from "Part Select", watched the 19 minute video (excellent) on changing out a clutch from this website. After 1.5 day delivery, I installed per video. Very pleased, thank you; Dave

Removed the fabric softner at the top of the agitator (needed a screw driver to pry it loose) and reached in to grab the barrier with my hand and pulled it out, very simple to do.When I put the new one in I put some liquid soap on the gasket and it snapped right into place.Very easy to do, all is well now, thanks Part Select.

I did a you tube search for "no cold water in washer" and found a video for what the fix is. Afte disconecting the power and water hoses it was Unbelievable how easy it was. Two screws in the back to open it up which I watch on a you tube video which was from part select. Then two spring clamps to open the inside and expose the water valve.. One screw and a hose clip and the valve was out. Did the reverse and put it back together..

pulled out the agitator assembly, put together the new parts, and re- installed them. it's as easy as it gets! ( however a little grease in the replacement kit would be nice!) took 15 min. including washing my hands afterwords.

The Whirlpool website provided an excellent repair video, showing a step by step procedure for making this repair. I did have to clean the old parts but other than that i just followed the video. I used a socket to loosen a single bolt holding the agitator,I pulled it apart, replaced the cogs, and then put it back together.

Agitator not working

Followed the directions from the video from Part Select website. Very easy, saved allot of money doing it myself. Ordered the Agitator Repair Kit and the other parts that the website suggested I needed for the repair. But when you order the repair kit you do not need the Thrust spacer or the Inner cap seal because they came with the kit. The Kit I ordered does not state that it comes with those two items, but they did with the kit I ordeded. Would order from Parts Select again. Order arrived in about 3 days on a Saturday, which surprised me that FedEx delivered on a Saturday with the standard shipping. Thank You

Replaced Cltch assembly. Hardest part was figuring out how to drop the motor. The clutch is located of the main shaft above the motor, under the drum. Three bolts hold the motor in from underneath, however there is a bolt at the top of the shaft in the agitator assembly. Note location of the snap ring on the shaft holding the clutch assembly, grooves in shaft. The only other issue that I had is the is a triangular metal peice that is not attached in anyway between the drum and framing. It had moved when I had the motor and had to be reset after I did my first test run of washer. Spins out great now!
