I took the pliers pulled the plastic clip off the back of the knob and pulled the knob off the dial lifted the dial off. I pushed the new dial on then pushed the new knob on and I was done. The hardest thing was to open the plastic bags the parts came in. The next time I will use a knife or something else to open the bags

I pulled the clip that locks the knob on the dial. This releases the knob. That is where I saw the wear on the plastic teeth that turns the dial. I replaced the knob with new part from PartSelect.com and replaced the clip. Partselect.com had my parts delivered to my residence within 3 days.

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 plastic ratchet on the timer knob wore away, with resulting problem of not being able to change wash cycle.

I just did a google search and found a video that shows to use a zip tie to hold the belt to the big pulley and simply turn the drum and the belt goes right on. Then cut the zip tie off and you are ready to go. Took all of 3 minutes to change the belt from start to finish.
