My washer was overflowing when filling. Stopped filling when i unplugged from wall so i knew it was the pressure switch because the tube was fine. It took 28 hours from the time i placed the order to the time it hit my front porch. Got home from work and two minutes later i was washing clothes. Thanks for all the info, Tom

Agitator was not working during wash, would during end spin cycle

The worst part was removing the agitator. I finally found a thread that explained you have to pull directly up to release the 'clips' that held the agitator to the coupler. I used my kids' jumprope, tied around a thick, 4 ft. dowel, with the other end tied around the agitator fins. The key was making sure the rope was straight above the top of the agitator. It took my entire body weight on the dowel/lever to get the agitator to pop off, but it finally did. After that, repair took about 45 seconds. I was thrilled that the diagnosis (with the complete help of this website) was right and that was all it took. Coupler arrived within 2 days. I also ordered the belt, in case that was the problem, and a new nut (good thing, mine was rusted). Thank God this was the solution- especially since my 5 yr old has the stomach flu and I have lots of laundry- no time for the machine to be down! Fantastic customer service and help diagnosing problem on this site!!

Removed front panal & operate to see leak origion. Found the side of the pump cracked and split. Part Select sent the exact replacement part! Unplug washer. Remove ront panal; using a putty knife and a bit of preasure at the two release clips. Using pliers or small vise grips, squeeze hose clamps and locate back out of the way and remove two hoses. Have a shallow pan below to catch remainig water. Unhook the electric connections, taking note of where. Using nut driver or small ratchet, remove the two mounting screws and pump. I used new screw type hose clamps in lieu of the originals.

First I unplugged the washer and then removed the front panel of the washing machine using the puddy knife running it along the top edge approximately 3 inches inward from each corner found the tab on each end and pushed in with the knife until the panel popped loose from the top tabs. I then located the pump motor on the lower front right side of the machine and compared it to the new one that I had purchased,(they were the same) Note;be sure all the water is drained from the washer otherwise get ready for a bath approximately 1 gallon of water came out of the drain hose that is located on the back of the pump after using the pliers to squeeze the clap and remove the hose,this was the worst of the whole job,then remove the inlet hose on the top by squeezing the spring clamp with the pliers. Next unplug the harness located in the front of the pump,and then last take a 1/4 drive ratchet w/extension and a 10 mm socket and remove the 2 hex screws on the mounting plate. Install the new pump and motor assembly in reverse order with the instructions above and you should be washing clothes in no time. Thanks

First i noticed a small leak coming from the pump assembly dripping onto the motor/pump bracket with indications that it had been doing this for some time.Looking @ this i then took the pump/motor assembly off cleaning the inlet and outlet of pump off so i could plug one side of the pump while blowing into the inlet side of the pump verifying that the gaskets around the pump assembly was in fact leaking.Replacement was very easy.Purchased a new pump/motor assembly from parts select and received it in three days.Used a flat tip screw driver to press on top front clips pulled away from front of washer then up and off.The pump/motor assembly only has two screws holding it down then i pulled off the electrical connector after that used channel locks to remove both inlet and outlet hoses off pump.Installed new. very easy

It would agitate but not the final spin and no code on display or l. E. D. The led worked I had a green one on inverter I found that the fuse (in the wiring behind front panel )was blown or open probably a electron blew the fuse lol well then I replaced the fuse with an automotive fuse holder and installed a 10 amp fuse which was blown and went through the test cycle and I got nothing for agitate or spin (dohh) so the chart and online said bad motor / inverter I ordered one and received it in 4 days installed in 20 minutes and went through the test cycle with red l. E. D. And it passed so I reasembled took out my fuse and installed a jumper where the fuse was as instructed in literature with the new motor and im doing laundry again thank you

Water was not draining from washer

  • Customer: Jesus from Casa Grande, AZ
  • Difficulty: Really Easy

My wife calls me and says that the washer is not draining water so I was like "great"...here goes more money. After I tried draining, cleaning, checking for leaks, I looked up possible causes and came across the water pump. I have bought from parts select and I love this website so I jumped on here, found the causes, diagram, installation videos, and cheap parts. Added to cart, paid, and was here in about two days. I disconnected the electricity, opened the front lid, took off the two hoses, unscrewed the pump, swapped in the new one and hooked it back up. The washer works like new, took me about 10 minutes. Thanks Partselect!!!!
