Looked on line and found the cheapest repair for my symptoms seemed to be the tub wear pads. Disconnected the washer, tilted it to where I could inspect the pads and discovered one was missing. So ordered a set, (Only complaint was the shipping was as much as the part). Parts arrived in 2 Days (!). Tilted the washing machine again...reached up with a small flathead screw driver and pryed the old pads off...snapped the new ones on (takes a little pressure, so eat your wheeties)...and job done. Stood everything back up and re-connected hoses, drain and plug...Works like brand new...Unfortunately for the wife who thought she was going to get a new one....LOL

The washing machine started making a clicking type noise and would not drain after the rinse cycle completed.

After entering the Parts Select website and searching for the model number information, I found a video which described the problem. The video explained the step by step procedure to access the possible problem. The problem was exactly as the video described, I ordered the repair part, made the repair, and placed the washer back in service. Oh, by the way, the part was delivered to my house the next day.

Would not spin out all the water from clothes

Similar to the youtube repair video, followed it mostly. This model has a different plug in set up on top where the wiring is. Just unplugged a different plug in a different location. The other difference is that I did a lot of dusting and vacuuming of inside parts and around motor. Also used some spray on rust converter on some rust spots then coated those areas with spray paint. Also where wire harness hooks to the frame I taped up a longer section of the wire to keep the wires together so they could move around and not be damaged. The actual repair took about a half hour, but took more time taking the washer outside on porch then back into the house. Out side repair is better because a significant amount of water came out of the washer and drain hose when we tilted it on the back to remove motor and transmission. Just follow the youtube video instructions and most people should have little or no problems doing the job.

Washer full of water not draining

  • Customer: James from Port St Lucie, FL
  • Difficulty: Really Easy

First I tried take the back off. Wrong move, wasted 30 mins on that. Then drained water into bucket, moved washer on hand truck to garage for more room to work. Had pump & drive coupling out in 20 mins. Found Partslect & ordered parts in 15 mins. Two days later had everything back working in 20 mins. Very Good Srevice.

The tub would not spin during the spin cycle. I diagnosed that the door switch was functioning. And through some reading on the internet, found out it was the motor coupling. I replaced the clutch assembly strictly as preventative maintenance.

I am not even going to attempt to explain. The videos that were brand specific are all anyone needs to complete any repair. They are very well made. And easy to follow. Thank you for saving me a repair call!

Parts select gives you the top solutions for the problem you are having. This suggested a clutch, and upon looking at mine I could see it was displaced. I watched the instructional video, and it was spot on. It told me how to from beginning to end and it worked out perfectly. I spent about an hour of my time, spent $38, and my machine is fixed. Thank you Parts select for the free video, I couldn't have done it without it.

removed 2 machine screws a top of back plate with nut-driver, removed two Phillips screws holding control panel on with screwdriver, lifted control panel out of the way to get to tension bands holding back on and removed with small pry-bar. Pry open the back enough to remove electrical connections from Water Inlet Valve. Remove machine screw with nut-driver that holds Water Inlet Valve and slide valve out. Use pliers to remove hose from Water Inlet Valve. Reverse process for install.

I used the online video provided by PartSelect. It provides a better method of instruction than I can document.

Washer would not drain

The repair on this model did not require disconnecting the water supply or drain hoses as suggested in the video presentation because it didn't have to be tipped over. Just unscrew and tip over the control panel and remove the cabinet. The lid switch and water pump are then easily accessible. The lid switch was clearly broken by visual inspection. In a model this old replacing the pump at this cost is advisable, especially since it is easy accessible. Easy job. Machine now works fine.

Replace leaking water pump

The repair video was very helpful and exactly right. The most difficult task was removing the old pump. It had apparently seeping between the motor shaft and the pump coupler for some time and had rusted the pump to the motor shaft. I had to aggressively grip the pump housing with the channel lock pliers and wrench it back and forth to break it loose. I took a file to remove the rust build up from the motor shaft before installing the new pump. Washer works fine.

Washing machine shook violently during spin cycle

Luckily enough the washer shown in the demonstration is my exact model, which eliminated any variables I may have come across. The repair was relatively easy and probably could of been done in less time but I took every step slowly to avoid breaking something or leaving something unattached. For the money and time spent on this repair I would certainly recommend this for anyone with a similar issue. After taking the machine completely apart, i found that the suspension pads were still properly functioning. Since i had already purchased them with the tub wear pads, I changed them anyway. The trickiest part for me was pulling the outer tub out because the shaft on my unit was very rusted had a considerable amount of buildup on it. During this step I was very careful to remove all the build up because there is a single rubber seal between the center opening of the tub and the motor shaft. After I made sure the shaft was completely smooth and there were no protrusions I gently rocked the tub back and forth while applying pressure from the underside of the tub, all the while making sure that the seal didn't fold in on itself or stretch in any direction. Other than that, the repair went very quickly and easily . The spanner wrench is a must !!! I actually found it on amazon for about 6 dollars and I'm positive I will find another use for it somewhere down the road. I owe a big thank you to Steve. (the guy in the video) and everyone else from parts select for making laundry day in my house tolerable again !!!

Had a lot of corrosion on the shaft area and had a hard time removing the inner tub but after some WD-40 and unprintable words and labor it popped off. Cleaned everything up, shaft, inner drum and outer drum. After that everything was a piece of cake. Thanks for the help!

Water was not being drained from my washer

After figuring out the shell was not gonna come apart easily, as some videos show for Whirpool, Kenmore.., to gain access to the water pump, I decided to try a trick I'd heard of before and try to get to it from the bottom. Since most washing machines have their water pumps in the front, I pulled it out enough to be able to lean it back against the wall and look underneath. Be very sure you have unplugged the machine from the outlet! Also be sure to support it from falling forward. The hoses and pump were easily accessible from this position.Using the pliers to remove the hose clamps, I could wiggle the hoses off easily. Be prepared for some water to run out, because there will be some in there. After removing the hoses, the clips holding the water pump on were easily removed with my fingers, you might need a screwdriver to loosen the clips. With the clips pulled back, or removed if you turn them 90 degrees the pump should pull off the shaft of the motor easily. A gentle tapping will usually loosen any stuck pump.Once the old pump is removed, line up the shaft of the motor and pump's sleeve with flat sides matching and it should slide on easily. Do not force it, it should slide on easily if lined up properly. Replace the clips holding the pump to the motor. Reconnect the hoses, slide the clamps back into place with the pliers, and you should be ready to Rock-n-Roll. Lower the machine, and slide it back into place. Hope this helps all of those that choose to repair their own Crosley washing machine with a new water pump.
