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
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Wrench set

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!!!!

The agitator disconnected

  • Customer: Daniel from Oak Ridge, NC
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
It was slightly difficult because the previous time I did this I over tightened the nut and it snapped. I had to drill out the broken screw and back it out prior to installing the new coupling. Once the broken screw was removed, the coupling went in easily and I tightened it JUST ENOUGH and NO MORE. The agitator easily snapped into place. Word to the wise, don't over tighten the nut that holds the coupling in place. It snaps REALLY EASILY.

Noisy washer, especially while spinning.

  • Customer: Olle J from Albert Lea, MN
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

Take off front. Take off top. Pull off agitator. Pull off agitator coupler, after removing bolt holding in place. Attempt to remove hub nut, no joy. Wound up cutting the nut with a Dremel tool and chiseling the nut off. Closer inspection revealed a bad transmission. Due to the cost of the transmission, we will continue to use the machine until it completely fails.

I followed the instructions that were on you tube. Removing the hub nut was very difficult because it was stripped. I had to chisel the nut off. Once I got the nut off the rest of the repair was easy. I would also like to give a special thanks to Gin from your call center. She knew exactly what I was talking about and sent the correct parts. Thank you very much

The clothes have been dingy for quite some time.

  • Customer: Mark from Roanoke, VA
  • Difficulty: Easy

I noticed the agitator would spin all the way around, in each direction. Also, the machine would make no sound, associated with washing, during that part of the cycle. I pulled the fabric softener reservoir off, with fingers on each side of the agitator, i pulled straight up and that gives you access to the coupling. Use a 7/16'" socket to loosen the nut, remove it and pull the coupling off. Press the new coupling on the splined shaft, tighten nut, and line up agitator with the grooves, push it down and replace fabric reservoir. Straightforward repair.

Small leak from a tiny hole in the drain hose

  • Customer: Kathy from Tallahassee, FL
  • Difficulty: Really Easy

Simply unclamped the lower end of the hose, then used the nut driver to release the upper clamp of the hose. Took it off, replaced it with the new hose and re-clamped both ends. It took me about 12 minutes to do this. Very easy repair!!

The machnica had recently developed a rumble during the spin cycle

  • Customer: Fred from Murphy, TX
  • Difficulty: Difficult
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Socket set, Wrench (Adjustable), Wrench set

The first thought regarding the light rumble during the spin cycle is that the bearing was going bad. Many of the other inputs on replacing the bearing included the problem with removal of the Hub Nut. Only one article noted a set of assembly instruction for the washer is clipped onto the upper rear panel behind the control knobs, but I did not see this comment until later. Not being sure where to start with diassembling the washer, I began by taking off the control panel and to my pleasant surprise I found a neatly folded set of detailed instructions. Following the instructions, I proceeded to quickly disassemble the washer until I got to the HUB NUT. The Hub Nut is an aluminum, 1 -11/16 inch, left hand threaded problem. My tool selection is somewhat limited, so after unsuccessfully attaching it with grippers and vice grips, supported with the liberal aid of a rubber mallet and plenty of WD40, I went looking for something with which I could a better grip on the hub nut. The grippers and vice grips would slide a bit when hit with the mallet. Also since the space is very restricted, a large wrench could not be used. I located a 9-inch pipe wrench, and with the rubber mallet the Hub Nut finally loosened after just a few hits. I replaced the old bearing which appeared to be in fair condition. While replacing the bearing has not solved my noise problem, I thought that my experience with the pipe wrench benefit someone else in their efforts to get the hub nut off without using a chisel.

agitator stopped working

I had no intention of trying to fix the washer myself after reading about how to do it, only because I didn't know what half of the words were referring to. But once I watched the video, and I saw that the part was going to cost less than $15.00 (shipping included), I thought I would at least try it before going out and buying a new machine. The washer in the video was slightly different than mine, but I recognized the parts from my machine and mine was actually easier to replace than the one in the video. I just pulled off the agitator, unbolted the old agitator coupling and replace it with the new one, bolted it back on and lined up the agitator grooves with coupling and that was it. It worked and saved me a lot of money. I once had an appliance repairman tell me that if your washer or dryer lasts 7 years nowadays, you should consider yourself lucky. Mine is 7 years old, so I thought I would have to replace it. I didn't particularly want to pay someone $100.00 to come to my house and tell me it couldn't be fixed if I was going to have to buy a new one. But fixing it myself was very easy. Written instructions never would have worked for me, but the video was very helpful. Thanks!
