I took off the front of the washer with two screw drivers. Removed the hose clamps with the pliers then removed the two screws with the nut driver and changed out the pump. Nothing to it. Easy fix, it works like new for $45 and 15 minutes.

No shake, but plenty of rattle.

We bought this used Hotpoint that was probably one of the original machine created back in the stone-age, it's so old. We've had it 10 months, and it's always had this... burnt rubber stink to it... then one day, it stopped agitating and sounded like a metal bucket of bolts being shaken. We're on a military income with five kids, and the idea of buying a new washer was just... heartbreaking. On a whim, having fixed a washer once before, we opened the front up and painstakingly pulled every last rubber fiber from what used to be the belt. Ordered the part. It shipped quick, arrived quick, and in under a week we were back in business. Someone else had mentioned the needing 1/4" socket, and I was glad I remembered that, because it made is SO much easier.

After a wash cycle, water kept dripping into the tub

After figuring out to use a very small flathead screwdriver to get out the "star" screws holding on the front panel, since I don't have the proper tool for this, it was easy! Just disconnected hose lines from back of washer, unplugged the old valve, removed the screws holding it in. I disconnected the small water line that was connected to valve. I put in the new valve, reconnected everything, put panels back on, and it worked like new again.

Easiest thing I ever did on the computer. U tube helped me diagnose the problem and how to remove the old pump and install the new. Parts Select menu was easy to navigate and had a picture of the pump I needed. The cost was affordable and I got the satisfaction of making the repair myself.

Tube Shaking Like Out Of Balance. Water Not Draining Completely And Created An Unpleasant Odor

Main thing is watch the video. It may vary a little according to the age of your appliance, as it did with me but common sense guides. The difference was minor on my part. Two hex head screws to remove per strap and they had to make them 1 size different. Go figure. Have your change handy. A ratchet nut driver will save you some time.

1)Remove the 5 screws from the back panel to gain access to the dual inlet valve. 2)Disconnect the wire from the valve. Then, remove the screws the hold the valve. Then, remove the C-clamp from the valve to get it loose. 3) Then, reverse the procedures to install the new valve.

Found out the screw was stripped from the agitator, probably because the washer is over 10 yrs old. We got the right part! The parts store was very fast in shipping, in fact we got it the next day! Highly recommend PartSelect!!!!!!!!!!

Removed fabric softener cover by pulling up. Then removed agitator by grabbing at the bottom and pulling up. Note I did read online that some may have a bolt holding the agitator down thats what it seemed like when I read it. Mine did not have a bolt. after removing the agitator there is a 10 or an 11mm bolt holding it down remove that and the coupler comes right out then install in reverse order. All done. Also its a ge adora washer.
