Checked problem on-line and discovered it was the water inlet valve. Matched the part on part select. Com. Finding the part was very easy. Part select had a grid behind the picture to help determine the size and pictures from all sides. Removing the old part, matching it, and replacement took a total of 30 minutes. I now have clean clothes.

First I took sides off the washer. I then took screws out of the Drain pump holder. Unclamped the two pipes from it. Undid the wires to then drain pump. Screw in the new pump hardware. Plugged in the wires on side of the pump. Reclamped the pipes. Put sides back on washer and it worked. That easy and took less then 30 minutes. I am no handy man so thats how easty it was.

I pulled the old motor out of the bottom of the washer. After undoing the screws and taking off the belt. I threw the new one in and tightened everything up and put the belt back on and it worked great... Super easy to change a motor out and a lot cheaper than buying a new waher...

The best part was that it only took one day to ship to my house and I picked the cheapest shipping amount... I recommend this site..

Removed 2 screws at bottom of the front panel - removed front panel by sliding the panel down about 1/2 inch and then away from the appliance- v belt is removed by pushing the tensioner pulley to remove tension from the belt and turning the pulley untill the belt is removed instalation is a simple reverse of the process. I did't have a repair manual so every step was trial and error untill I was able to complete the repair.

CLothes weren't getting dry enough for the dryer.. also made a squeling, rubbing noise while aggitating. Had a repair man for my dishwasher..told him I thought it was the transmission.. he hand turned the aggitator and said that was the problem.. Just needed a new aggitator....whew what a relief!

Replaced pump, by removing back panel and removing the two screws holding the pump to the bottom of the machine. The only difficult aspect was dealing with the hose clamps, these were extremely awkward to work with in a confined space. The repair would have been less than 30 min if the hose clamps weren't so difficult to put back in place.

I got online and figured out exactly how to take off the front of the washer and then how to replace the belt. It was so easy. The part itself arrived much sooner than predicted. It fit perfectly and my washing machine is now running smoothly and quietly.
