Agitator would not agitate

  • Customer: Jeffrey from Louisville, KY
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Socket set

The repair was really simple. I pulled off the agitator cap by hand, then put my fingers under the agitator itself. There should be some play in how much the agitator can be lifted up. Some instructions and how-to videos tell you to use a leather belt to remove the agitator but I didn't have a problem removing it with my hands. One quick, hard pull did the trick. Under the agitator, you'll see the agitator coupling, which s held on buy a 7/16" bolt on top. Use a nut driver or a socket to remove the bolt and pull the coupling straight up. Use a wire brush to scrape away all the crud underneath it and on the metal splines. Once the area is reasonably clean, slide the new coupling into place and reattach it with the new bolt that is provided. Line up the grooves in the coupling with the grooves in the agitator and snap it back down into place. Replace the agitator cap and you're all done.

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

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.
