We search on line the possible cause for our problem and Partselect offered the possible cause and solution. We watched the video on replacing the water pump.We then ordered the pump and 2 hoses.We followed the instructions and after removing the front panel, we found out one of the pump retainer was rusted away. We tried to look for local supplier and was shock that Sears was charging 20 bucks for a single retainer, which Partselect only charge dollar and eight cents. We ordered the 2 retainers on Thursday and it arrived on Saturday afternoon. We were able to fix the problem and are very happy there was no more leak. I wish the retainers come with the pump even if you include the extra cost to the pump pricing. We could have save the extra shipping charge for ordering the retainers only. I would definitely order more parts from Partselect and recommend it to my friends. Thanks again for your help.

I first thought that the fan belt came off. Got the cloths out of machine, and tipped on over to look under, where I discovered that there was no fan belt. Looked online for answers, and found that machine was direct drive. Looked around under machine for something damaged or broke. Saw the direct drive coupling was cracked into three pieces. Ordered the part I was 95% sure I needed, and it was at my house in less than 48 hours. Watched a video on how to replace the direct drive coupling. This was amazing and easy to use information. Made me feel like a pro. The video covered everything you could imagine for the repair, step by step. Machine runs now as good as new.

I found the impeller, in the water pump, had worn thru the front pump housing. Allowing water to leak on to floor. Replaced pump from under washer. Removed two hose's and two retaining brackets. Aligned pump and refastened hose's and retaining clamps. Works great. Thanks to Parts Select for the right part and the right price. Also Fast shipping. Dan H. Poplar Grove Il.

Machine would not spin when pumping out water

You have to determine if it is the COUPLING or the TRANSMISSION or the CLUTCH. I checked the coupling and that wasn't it. The machine did rotate back and forth in the wash cycle so I thought it would be either the clutch or the timer assembly. I ordered the clutch and used the video to guide me through the installation. One problem was the PUMP was stuck on the shaft so I removed the hosed and took out the rest as one unit. The clutch was full of crud and after replacing it and checking for leaks, the machine runs perfectly now! I would suggest you replace the hose washers when you reattach them to the machine as I rechecked after turning on the water and found a TINY drip that would have been a problem over time!

Top half of the agitator was not spinning

Simple repair that only took as long as it did because I took the opportunity to thoroughly clean the underside of the agitator and the bottom of the drum which it covers. Clear instructions, simple repair but it would be nice if this site had a footnote when ordering the kit that the grease for the thrust bearing is not included. I (sparingly) used a pure silicone grease I had in the garage. Everything is operating smoothly and we once again have clean clothes. What more could I ask for?

Started to replace the water pump but looked online at Youtube and everyone said to look at the lid switch first. I bypassed the switch and sure enough that was it! No need for the pump.

Removed auger replaced parts. I had to use the old cam because the part that held the cam dogs in place wouldn't go all the way down. If I had pushed hard enough it may have snapped in. Installed the agitator mounting bolt, cap and seal assembly and the outer auger cap and washed a load of clothes!
