Old trusty washing machine suddenly wouldn't drain...

  • Difficulty: Easy

Used partselect.com once before to purchase washer/dryer parts. I 100% believe in their "how-to" videos...they give you all the confidence you need to do these intimidating repairs. My husband hates projects like this, and I have found it pretty satisfying to not only fix, but diagnose problems using this website. Not that I wish for more repairs with my appliances, but it is only a matter of time before something breaks down again...and I assure you I will be back!

I purchased the part from PartSelect because it was very reasonable and it was OEM part. I have never replaced this kind of part on a washer so I figured it would take me a while. But PartSelect supplied a video showing the entire repair and that was the only reason I did not struggle with the repair. I will definitely buy any appliance parts I need in the future from PartSelect. Thanks Don

It was the water pump

  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Wrench (Adjustable)

The most helpful hint was the video that I followed to a tee an if not I'd be treading in deep water. Very good but being a rookie it took me a hour an a half to complete, but it was my first voyage, of which should take 30 min if skilled a little bit. End results it works better than it has ever but always remember to keep track of all parts to replace it back in the right position. Thanks Again an I'll be back to see you if necessary for future reference!!!

Leaking Water Pump

I disconnected the washer from the water hoses and unplugged it. I laid it down on its back and the pump was right there on the bottom front. There were no clips holding the pump. With a pair of Channel Locks I disconnected the two hoses from the pump. I had to pry it off using a screwdriver. The pump shaft was rusty from the water leak so I wire brushed off. I put the new clips I ordered in place and pushed the new pump on. I then snapped the back clip on first because it was easier with a little tilt of the pump. I had to use my screwdriver to put the outside clip on. I reconnected the hoses put the wash back upright hooked up the water hoses and plugged it back in. I turned on and no leaks and is working good.

Washer was not spinning, but making a loud spinning noise.

  • Customer: William from Sonoma, CA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers, Socket set, Wrench (Adjustable), Wrench set

Disconnected power. Disconnected hot and cold, and drain hoses and placed in a plastic bucket. Pulled cover off the washer. Tilted washer onto its back. Removed 2 clips holding the pump. Disconnected wire harness from motor and removed 2 clips holding motor starting with lower clip. Removed a screw from the upper clip used for shipping. Set motor aside and removed broken pieces of the motor coupler from motor and transmission. The replacement part had a metal sleeve in the center of each white plastic ring. The old part did not. This required tapping the new ring onto both the motor and transmission shafts with a socket and makes for a tight fit. Reversed the process to put everything back together. Some alignment might be necessary to place motor to transmission. I recomment wearing thin work gloves to avoid nicks from sharp edges. I didn't. Washer is spinning again and sounds a lot better.

Video \was great but...

Partselect's video on how to replace the waterpump was great, but I was a bit stymied at the beginning as the control panel on my Whirlpool was attached differently than shown in the video. Mine was held on with two Phillips head screws in the back corners of the control panel. Also I'd suggest replacing the tub to pump hose (Part PS334685) at the same time-I wish I did. That hose was coated with crud which I cleaned out the best I could. All in all a pretty easy job-hardest part was getting cabinet back on (put the front bottom under the frame, then lower the cabinet onto the frame.

After 18 years and a family of four, my drain hose developed about a 3/4 inch split.

After removing the body housing for the washer to find the problem, I left the housing off until my drain hose arrived (in 2 business days). Remember to keep your spring hose rings from the old drain hose. Within 10 minutes, I had the new drain hose attached and clipped in to the rear of the machine. Within 30 minutes, my wife was washing a load of clothes. **Reminder: This is a good time to thoroughly clean the areas of your washer that you normally do not get to. Also remember that your first load of clothes washed after the repairs and cleaning should be dark (i.e. jeans or work clothes) should their be any residual dirt in your drum after cleaning.

I did the job all by myself. Even though I paid with my husbands card and you think he did the repair, I did it! I watched the video and it could not have been easier. I surprised my husband and he was very proud. He would have bought a new washer but there was nothing wrong with this one. Two screws and two nuts. unplug the old one and plug in the new one. The clips were my hardest part but not overwhelming. Thanks so much.

Watched video, did the repair when part arrived, took less then 30 mins, I removed the broken switch before the part got here, then I installed new switch when it arrived and it works great, second time I order from parts select and saved hundreds of dollars buy doing the repair myself.

Took the cabinet apart really easily with Part Selects helpful video. Removed old suspension springs by removing outer brackets on two of them and by using pliers on the third one. The tub spring was totally missing. Put on two new brackets and springs with the nut driver. Then stretched the third spring into place. Replaced the tub spring by stretching into place and then put cabinet back together. All done very quickly!!! Now it works perfectly and runs very quietly.
