metal reinforced coupling

  • Customer: Sammy from Strawberry, AZ
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Socket set
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
The repair went very well as per the video, however the metal reinforced coupling only went onto the shaft half way. To ensure the coupling was flush with the top of the shaft I has to use a hammer and tamp the coupling onto the shafts. If you left it halfway on the shafts there was no room for the rubber spacer between the couplings. Other wise it operates very well.

Agitator no longer worked

  • Customer: David from Elkin, NC
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver

My washer is pretty old but still in overall good condition. I just happen to open the top to add softener and noticed the agitator wasn't turning. Found the problem and ordered the repair kit. I had taken the agitator apart (One bolt under two snap off caps.) so when the kit arrived, quickly I might add, I only had to assemble the replacement kit, bolt the agitator back down and re-install both caps. 15 minutes from start of repair to putting in a load of wash.

long time in soak cycle, raise the lid and lowered lid , it would start working.

The training video you supplied was right on. I watched it twice to make sure I understood the procedure. I followed the steps outlined in the video and encountered no surprises. The replacement valve was a perfect match and functioned perfectly after installation. I checked other sources for the price of the replacement part. Your price was more than competative. Thank you for a fine service.

Washer would start and stop and finally just quit working

  • Customer: JOSE from KILLEEN, TX
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Socket set

First, the part I needed was easy to identify because the website broke down the major sections of the washer and the components of each major section providing illustrations. And, it was fairly easy to repair my washer because the website provided a video that showed me how to do it. I probably would have finished fixing my washer in an hour but believe me....after washing clothes for 5 years...you will want to seriously clean the interior of the machine!!! That's what took me so long to finish the job. I aint exactly a DIY kind of guy without a friend to assist (two heads better than one) but I sure felt like an expert when I finished and the washer worked. I HIGHLY recommend anyone needing to fix an item to use PARTSELECT.

After alot of helpful advise from you guys I replaced coupling water pump clutch, and the problem was still their. Then I tested motor capacitor and it appears dead. So I should receive new one tomorrow and hopefully success! I turned machine over and oil leak..so that's where the string with hose and air needle come in handy to put 90weight oil in through breather hole in gear case.

one thing that you do not need to do is to remove the pump from the motor, I tried to remove it as per the instructions but the pump cracked,remove both inlet and outlet hoses from the pump and remove the pump and motor together, don't try to take them apart, you don't need to, thanks

Washing Machine stopped spinning and agitating, clicking/hum noise when lid closed.

Did not know problem or how to access - thought the back came off washer. Typed in symptoms and it pretty much pinpointed the most likely cause. Watched video on how to take it apart (BTW the front and sides come off, NOT the back). Followed the guide, took motor off and sure enough one of the plastic couplers was cracked. Ordered from PartSelect and with regular shipping the cost was under $20 (ordered Tues. night, had it by Thurs.) Installed part - note as someone else said the new piece has metal inserts which make it really snug to go around the drive shaft, but the tip about using an oversized socket and some light taps to get it on worked liked a charm. Put it all back together (getting case back on was toughest part)and its been working fine for the last week - heavy & lite loads. Have to say was thinking the whole thing needed to be replaced (sound & age) but for $20 it was worth the shot...Glad i came here first!

Pump was leaking water around the seal.

Watched the repair video that came with receipt. Removed two screws from power head, folded out of the way. Removed two large clips holding outer shell on and removed outer shell. Tipped washer back towards wall. Removed two clips holding pump on to motor shaft. Removed both hose clamps, drained hoses onto towel. Aligned new pump onto shaft and did a reversed assembly of above items. Works great!
