First I removed two screws in front lower panel to access lower portion of washer machine. Use pilars to push four plastic pins from each end of two vibration/shock abs. Job was very easy and took less than 30 minutes to complete.

First I unplugged. The machine from the outlet then disconnected the two water supply lines from the machine. Next I removed the back panel to gain access to the bottom of the drum. Next I took a nut driver and used it to depress the little tab on the push pin that hold the bottom part of the strut on. After getting the pins out I replaced the old strut assembly withe the new one. I used the nut driver again. But this time I used it as a set tool. Place the nut driver on the end of the push pin and gently tap with a hammer. Until the pin is all the way in. After that I reversed the assembly process to put the machine back together.

The door on the washer would not lock, therefore, you could not wash clothes.

After some research online about my Frigidaire Washer, I pre-determined that the problem could likely be the lock mechanism. I ordered the part and it arrived within 3 business days. My son removed the screws from the back of the washer, slid the top off and removed the old part and replaced it with the new part. It took about 20 mins. The machine is now working properly again. The door catch that I ordered did not work with the door lock I ordered. However, the old door catch that was still in good working order does work with the new door lock and switch assembly that I purchased.

Everything on the video was fine except when reinstalling the shocks with the plastic pins it was almost impossible to get a hammer back inside to knock in shock on left side and had a plastic part on the right side behind the shock absorber which you could not use a hammer and could pry on that part out of fear of damaging it when reinstalling pin So the video just said the right side just like the left but each side was different in what was located by each side Just confusing meaning you had to be creative in solving them!

Water inlet and dispenser valve broke when the pipes froze.

I took the broken dispenser out, slide the new one in and rearrange the wiring. It took longer to move the washing machine from it's location and return it than it did for the repair. The key element it was the right part and fit properly.

Pulled off back panel and found that the Drain pump had some how came loose, so I found screws and tried but still wouldn't work check pump for blockage couldn't find and but could hear the pump hum so figured the pump went bad. the hardest part was getting the squeeze type clamps off or it would have been a 30 minute job. I orederd new part and it came fed ex next day and put in and changed the bellows clamp to worm gear and made it a lot easier going in. Started washer and ran just like it was supposed to.

My wife done the repair while I was out of town. She never tries to won't on anything in fear that she will mess it up.But she said she had it fixed in ten minutes. Just take the hoses off the pump, unplug, and unbolt where mounted. Then reverse to put on new one. Partselect is always very prompt to sent my parts and I have never had an issue with anything. I will buy all my parts from them from now on.

Followed your instruction,simply removed the top cover and the two screws on the door to remove the switch assembly. Unplug old part and replaced with the new one after pluging three wires. I saved $105.00, which was the quote from a repair shop. Thank You for your great service and directions; the part arrived a day after I had ordered, did not pay extra for special delivery.

two screws took off the old plate, replaced the door strike with saame screws

Nylon door latch broke off. Poor design. The hinges on the Affinity washer and dryer have hinges that won't keep the latches aligned, so the strike hit the body and broke off.

Repair was easy. Two screws held it on. It's set into the door, so there is no adjustment. However, I should have bought a couple of extra ones, because the design problem is still inherent, and it will break the next time somebody is in a hurry and "slams" the door, or pulls it open before the cycle is completed. The ten pound door is held by a stike less than 1/8" thick.

Machine shook - caused wooden base to "walk".

Removed two screws at base on front and dropped cover.Recognized broken shock absorbers as problem or possible result of more critical problem.Removed broken shocks (obstinate pins:use proper open end wrench to engage pin beneath head and drive wrench handle to pull pin. Of course, at same time, push in lock on pin's point to release)and ordered part number.Installed new shocks.Plastic pins were originally "top" toward rear, but shocks could be rotated so pins would engage bushings properly with "top" toward rear or facing front (bushings have a "stop" opposite side pin is driven in).I rotated the shock "heads" and "shafts" as I saw fit for easiest installation (some pins head forward, others head back).One shock had a head location that made it difficult to push through the hole. I located a "service" hole in the back of washer almost directly opposite this head.Used wooden dowel (maybe 20 inches)through hole in back and hammer to drive pin in place.Liquid hand soap seemed okay lubricant for all pins.

unscrewed (2) screws, took broken piece off and screwed new piece on with the (2) screws. Keep your old screws because part does not come with screws.
