After a little research on line, I knew to remove the fabric softener cup, pull out the clear plastic divider, unscrew the agitator bolt, pop off the construction clips, slide a plate down a bit, remove the old cogs, put in the new, return all the pieces to their places, screw the bolt back in place and now it works perfectly. I also bought a cabinet clip, spacer & screw that I will use at a later date. This repair went quickly and easily.

removed and replaced the lid switch. Unfortunately the new lid switch only lasted a few days until it broke. The part that the lid contacts came out of the lid switch.

From the central column, pull off the fabric softener dispenser (of course, with the machine off). Reach in and pull out the seal (looks like a diaphram). Using a socket, undo the bolt and pull out the plastic ratchet assembly. I found the 4 dogs in bad condition, ordered them, and received them in a couple days. Replace the old dogs and reassemble. Only the bolt requires a tool. Much simpler and cheaper than I had anticipated.

Following the video posted with the part made this repair a piece of cake, well documented, filmed, great explanations of tools needed and how to do it all. This is a fantastic site for do it yourself people with a little bit of mechanical skills. BTW I've been a hvy. eqt. mech. for over 40 years so this is something different to tangle with and a lot cleaner. Thanks so much for your time and consideration in produceing this instructional video, and keep up the excellent work.

There was not a clear test this, this or this in the trouble shooting. So the most repaired thing was the timer, which I got. That didn't work. The coupling was not a problem. The lid switch was the last thing to replace. In checking the coupling, the piping to the valves started leaking. The pipes there are thirty plus years old. The pipe nipples broke off when I tried to unscrew the valves. They were rusted through and could have blown through at any time. So the time added up in replacing the valves and nipples. I stumbled onto a website that showed how to make a jumper to test the lid switch. That could have been done with very little effort. If that had been on your web site it would have helped narrow the problem almost immediately. Getting the outer housing shell back on the base was a bit more difficult than shown. I got it done.

I am a senior, a woman and have never made any such repair in the past, but have experience in easy electrical work, such as hanging fixtures, replacing switches, simple re-wiring of lamps. My washer is so old,(15+ years?) that the configuration of screws and plugs was different from that in the video, which I took the time to watch. However, once I knew that the control panel flips open, I could easily locate the right screws to remove and to unplug the leads of the lid switch. The clips holding the cabinet to the back wall of the washer were also similar and easy to remove and then to pull the cabinet off the machine. The old swith was broken off right at the two screws which hold it to the cabinet. I removed the old switch assembly as instructed, but faced another obstacle: the old switch plug-in had a different configuration of the male/female parts than the new part's plugs. So, my experience with rewiring came in handy. I ended up cutting off the plug end of both parts and replacing the new plug with my old one. I know this is unorthodox and would not recommend it to anyone who's not worked with electricity! I took special care to connect the wires so the connection would be in the back corner, farthest away from any moisture, and wrapped each connection and wire separately and copiously with electric tape, then wrapped the whole again in more tape. After re-assembling everything and turning the washer on, the cycle finished and the washer now works as good as new. Love this old machine!

Washer worked but wouldn't spin

Had a laptop with the repair video on next to washer and paused after each set of instructions to complete each task. Went perfectly! Only tricky part was fitting the cover back but eventually got it with a bit of jiggling. Very impressed with the instructional video as everything was where they showed it and came apart exactly as explained and more importantly went back together correctly.
