Once I watched the video to replace the pump(Thanks so much for that - big help!!), I disabled the machine to replace the pump, to my surprise found a big clump of fuzzy stuff that was blocking the pump, once I removed that and re-assemble the washer, it started working fine!. Unfortunately, I had already bought the the pump and agitator bell thinking they where both bad, so I'm in the process of returning them now, thanks a bunch! btw - what took so long was I had a mess with the water left in the washer, tip - get all the water out first ;-)

Pulled up agitator, replaced coupling kit, pushed new agitator onto new coupling kit. Took less than 5 minutes if that.

This top loading washer was purchased new in 2006. It has had a good bit of use and was a rather inexpensive model, but had been working fine. Suddenly the agitator stopped working. First I pulled off the agitator inside the machine, which in this model came off in one piece. In order to do that I grabbed it at the very bottom by pushing my fingers underneath the base, then rocked it from side to side while pulling up on it until it popped off. This exposed the agitator gear that had gone bad. I unbolted the gear and pulled it off. This removal took a bit of effort, and again, we had to rock it back and forth while pulling up on it until it finally came loose. When the new part arrived a few days later, we slipped it onto the transmission stem, and bolted it into place. Then the agitator was put back on and snapped into place. Works as good as new for less than $14, including shipping!

Viewed the hot/cold valve. I saw that the cold water solinoid was burned. Ordered new valve and replace old valve. On my washer 4 screws held the switch panel, easy to remove and gave me plenty of room to veiw and do the repair.

Belt had worn and was shredding and melting due to pump not draining tub. Too bad my wife and daughters couldn't tell me the pump wasn't working right any sooner. The belts slow disintigration over time made a black, gooey mess inside the machine. Worked on the machine in place and only removed front. Old belt removal was easy with screwdriver prying around motor pulley but replacement was challenging in the tight space under the machine. It did go on by working-rotating belt around back of agitator pulley. By far the hardest part of the job. Replacing pump was easy enough but made a water mess and had to adjust clamps for leaks. Machine is now good to go.

Dryer blew out of pickup, rolled down highway like a basketball, down an 8 foot grader ditch. Rolled it out of ditch, found two knobs not the third. Put side back on dryer, did some cosmetic work and it seems to work fine. One tough little machine. Slid handle on.

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

There are many on-line videos to help you do this. It's so easy, even a beginner handyperson can do it. For this model, just run a strap under the agitator to assist you in lifting it up off the coupler (good tug). Remove the old worn coupler, put the new one on, set the agitator back on by giving it a little downward push.
