Reading all the reviews and drawing from the experience shared on Parts Select for this problem saved me a lot of time and money. Two particular remarks saved my day: - always buy the hub nut, Part Number PS271505 when you have to replace the Inner Tub Base Hub, Part Number PS273296 and do not even attempt / waste time to try to loosen the hub nut, just use a chisel and remove it that way. The replacement of the parts where simple and quick after the hub nut was gone, the result is a working washer. Doing this myself saved me a couple $100.-'s as we where quoted well over $200.- by a repair company to fix this and it is really a simple thing to do yourself. Shipping of the parts was extremely quick - thanks for the great service

First I had no idea what to do. My first thought was to buy a new washing machine and so I began searching and found that a washer equal to mine was over $600. I brewed on this for a few days when a neighbor told me that they are not that hard to work on and we should take it apart and look at it first. We took the top and the front of the washer off and looked at the belt and the motor. All seemed fine. (we just used a screwdriver for that) then we took the agitator off, it pulled right off with some heavy tugging. then we saw the coupling. It was only held on by one screw. We used a socket to take the screw out and pulled the coupling off. It is supposed to fit very tightly on a shaft with gears. When we pulled it off and looked inside it, all the plastic gears in the coupling were stripped and that is why the agitator would not move. I expected this to cost me at least $50, but to my surprise the part was only $6.50. The shipping cost more than the part. When it arrived in about 3 days. I literally had the part on and the washer back together in less than 5 minutes. The entire repair cost me $14 and now the washing machine works better than it has worked in years. Who knew. If you intimidated by working on washers, don't be, they really are very simple machines and so not worth calling a repair man for.

When I received the replacement part, I was shocked at the small size compared to original equipment. I doubt the new part will last 12 years which is how long the original lasted. I installed it anyway because I did not want to wait for a better one from some other company. The new part was easy to install, but was not worth the price because it surely will not last.
