Used repair procedures per video on your web sight. However, do not expect removal of the 1-11/16" hub nut to be an easy task. I used a Crowfoot wrench and ended up having to use a digital electric impact driver set at 350 ft lb of torque to break the nut loose and only then after finally soaking it with a liberal amount of (Browning Gun Bore Cleaner) which was allowed to set and penetrate for over an hour. The entire process of replacing the above listed parts still took a total of nearly 6 hours straight working time. (This is not nearly as easy a task as the video makes it look.) They must be using a brand new washer in the video and a lot of time editing to get the video that short.

Would not completely drain all the water out of the tub after the final rinse cycle, with a burning smell from the belt because it could not turn properly.

Very easy to remove the parts, timer knob clip comes off with pliers. I tried to insert new clip into the slot, when I should have put the new clip around the part. Need to stress the method of putting new clip on.

Basically follow the instructions of fellow shade tree mechanics that were supplied with each part description. It was a real plus to know about the left hand threads and the suggestion to use the chisel instead of a pipe wrench.Wish I could find this much info on all my repair endeavors.Thanks

Belt ripped off

Step one: Order the Belt and the $10.00 tool that fits on the motor sprocket to keep the belt from slipping off. Step 2: Lean the washer back at about a 45 degree angle, you may have to disconnect the water lines to achieve this. This puts the machine in a good position when you sit in front of it as you are installing the belt. Step 3: Install the tool over the motor sprocket leaving the grooves exposed. The belt fits in these grooves. Step 4: Slip the belt over the motor sprocket first and than the large sprocket wheel behind. This will take a little muscle as the belt is considerably smaller. After a couple of attempts at rotating the big sprocket the belt kept slipping off. I than took a plastic tie and strapped it around the belt and the big sprocket wheel, this kept the belt from slipping off as I rotated the wheel. Once the belt is on snip off the plastic tie and you are home free.

I had to cut the drain extension tip of the hose to get the right shape so it could fit into the waste nozzel in the wall. Then I had to screw the new clip onto the washer....All went pretty easy and no more leak!

DISCONNECT POWER----1.- No pump sound when energized but I know it energized as the coil became a magnet. 2.- You need a drain pan to catch the water from the lower tub when the drain hose is disconnected from the pump. 3.- Water pump or channel lock pliers needed to remove the spring clamps on inlet and outlet from pump. 4.- Remove the 2 hold down bolts and the plug in power connection and the pump comes out very easily. 5.- On my pump I found a plastic tie wrap lodged in the pump impeller vanes-- this caused the pump either not to work at all or cause a cavitation effect caused the water in the tub not to drain completely. 6.- Since I had already purchased the new pump I installed the new pump and cleaned the old one to keep as a spare-- probably never going to need it though.7.- On the large diameter drain hose ( pump inlet ) I decided to use a auto hose clamp instead of the original spring clamp because the area to work on this pump is very cramped and getting the original spring clamp back on was very difficult. The hose clamp made it very easy and the seal was just fine. 8.- The new pump functions perfectly- PARTS SELECT delivered a quality OEM product and I am extremely satisfied with their normal delivery which was 2 days because the warehouse was only 150 miles from me.
