The video installation instruction was clear and very easy to follow. However, after installing the parts and started testing the washer, the water overflowed. It looks like the water level sensor wasn't working. It caused a little flooding in the area where the washer is. I took the control panel apart once more and this time diagnosed the water level sensor and analyzed how it works. After spending almost 45 minutes with, I detached the hose attachment and blew air which caused air bubbles in the inner side of the drum. I bent the hose to hold the air while re-attaching same to the sensor. This fixed the problem and the washer is once more, operating normally. Please include this part to your video instruction. Overall, it took me 8 hours on the project including the cleanup due to overflow.

We watched the repair video on the site twice and then were easily able to change out the lid switch assembly using a screwdriver and socket wrench. Prior to finding your site, we were searching new washers at a minimum of $700, so this saved us A LOT and was not time-consuming at all.

First of all I must say thanks guys for your help, the instructions were right on the money. I first replaced the clutch as per the instructions but found out that the problem was the motor coupling ........ It was broken. I ordered it, followed the instructions and I was a hero in my household. Once more thanks guys.

The agitator had stopped working

  • Customer: Jack from Matthews, NC

We got the parts, watched your video a couple of times and then began the repair. It went well with one exception. None of my socket extensions were long enough to work well. The required length might be added to the video and the printed installation instructions. Also it would have nice to have been able to order a small tube of the recommended lubricant. Overall I was very pleased. Jack

I googled the symptom and watched a video on youtube. From there, I jotted down my machine's model and serial number, and googled 'washing machine parts.' I found your web page to be user-friendly, ordered the agitator cog kit and 3 days later had the parts. It was simple to reassemble. Works like a champ!! I'm a 55 year old single woman.

Removed Agitator, replaced parts according to the "how-to" video on your website. Then re-assembled. Very easy! Especially after watching the GREAT, EASY TO FOLLOW video. a $20 part probably saved me at least $200 over calling a repairman. Thank You!

Top half of agitator was not functioning.

I watched a video that showed how to replace the dog ears. The video made it look quite simple, so I thought I would give it a try. I ordered the agitator repair kit and purchased the 10" socket extension at a local hardware store. I did not order the agitator grease, because it is very expensive. Instead, I purchased a small container of white silicone grease to lubricate the agitator. The agitator was extremely easy to disassemble. The dog ears that were supposed to be in the agitator were COMPLETLY disintegrated. I assembled the agitator repair kit, which was incredibly easy, and was ready to reinstall the repaired agitator. I took some time to clean the agitator and, quite frankly, that took longer than the repair. To anyone considering attempting this repair, I would say do not hesitate. Not only was it easy, it was actually pretty fun. It was also very satisfying to see this tired, old Maytag washer working perfectly again. And all for less than $40 including tools & grease!!!

My hubby had JUST left for vacation the day prior - now I've got myself and 3 kiddies that need clean clothes and I have to save the day... All I needed was a socket with an extension to get to that nut all the way down the shaft after popping the center cap off. Once that was done the column came right out and I just put together the cam agitator assembly the exact way it was in the washer, about 3 parts and a rubber washer and gasket - super simple!! I ordered the part expedited (for obvious reason) and Parts Direct for the exact part I ordered to me within 2 days - will definitely order from them again!!

Follow the video for replacing the part if you're not handy. I watched part of it because I haven't played with (repaired) a washer in a long time. Mark the wire connections before removing them from the valve not critical but helpful. I actually needed the video for replacing the clips.
