Pulled the top off the agitator, used the pliers to pull off the seal, used the socket to get the bolt off , pulled the rest of the agitator off and replaced the directional cogs. Put it back together in reverse. Piece of cake. Beats paying a repair man.

Agitator Stopped rotating, because the ends of directional cogs had worn down.

Lift off the agitator top with hands. Use socket with long extension to reach to center, unscrew bolt that holds the agitator to the shaft. Lift agitator out, slightly tap with hand so it will come apart to get to the 4 small directional cogs. At this point I used soap & water to clean all parts. I found the Thrust spacer was cracked. Ordered parts and they came in 3 days. You can just set the thrust spacer back in place using the diagram supplied with the parts. With the agitator upright I positioned the 4 cogs in place, and used a stiff wire to pull up into position, turned whole thing upside down, and matched the groves. I then flipped the agitator upright and set back in washer and bolted back into place. Works like new. Thats the way I did it. A good diagram is including with the parts.

The washer was making noise and was leaving the cloth dripping wet at end.

Before I even watch any partselect videos to do the repair, which I should of from the very beginning, ah, ja, ja, I had already disassembled the back panel "my way" to the washer and trouble shooting the washer with my wife's help. While she tilted the washer backwards, I looked under and we found that the noise was coming from in between top of the motor where the direct drive motor coupling is located and the clutch assembly came together which I learned along with names and functions after watching the partselect installation video. Nice! Once I received the part it took me like 45 minutes to put all back together. Took loose two screws to clips holding the motor, pulled motor of mounting bracket finding the broken piece, replaced it, recouped reinstalling motor onto the motor bracket, clip, clip the two little screws and walla, got the wife her washer back, at bed time rewards, peace of mind the rest was history... Thanks PartSelect for awesome videos and great customer service!

Washer would not drain - cause:failed lid switch

  • Customer: Frederic from Kilmarnock, VA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins

Followed the excellent instructions and video.to replace the lid switch. As noted in some of the comments, a few people experienced difficulty in reinstalling the main enclosure so it would lock in place. I did too. Instructions to reverse the dis-assembly are precisely correct, ..key is to center then slide the front of the enclosure into place while enclosure is slightly tipped toward the front, then let the enclosure rotate back in place. Finally figuring out to follow the directions exactly was the most time consuming aspect of the job. BTW, found did not need to remove the hoses since could do the whole job essentially in place. Great diagnostic, great installation instructions. Still can''t figure out why switch needed to be shipped in such a big box.

Followed the video and instructions included with part. At first we did not think the repair was successful, but after several small loads were run, squealing stopped. The washer is 16 years old and so far is running like new. We certainly appreciated the great customer service. The part was delivered in less than 24 hours.

The repair took about an hour. My wife told me the washer was so quite that she had to check and make sure it was running. It was like getting a new washer for less than 30 dollars. I've saved Part Select web site to my favorites and will use your company again.

I watched the short video that was in the email with my order confirmation and all turned out well.

The agitaor had stopped moving when laundry was put in the washer. The bottom level of the agittaor worked fine, it was only the top that would stop with the load of clothes.

There are youtube vids on how to get the thing open. I just wish I'd known the following: 1.remove agitator BEFORE opening the unit up and leaning it back (much easier to work inside the tube with it upright). 2. be aware that a free-floating part known as the skate plate can dislodge while the unit is on it's side/back. It is a generally triangular piece of flat-ish metal between the base of the tub and the top of the drive-train chassis. If it doesn't line up properly after you replace the parts you're going to get a noisy, clanking spin cycle the next time you run the thing (as I discovered).

The cap thingy seal broke and splattered fabric softener.
