Front loading washer would drain but not spin (drum still turned, though).
Removed the metal collar (the spring is at the bottom under the lip of the seal; just stretch the spring with some pliers and remove the ring) holding the door seal on. Pulled out the side of the door seal covering the lock mechanism (not the whole seal). Unscrew the two screws in the latch, pull out the mechanism, unplug the connectors, then install the new mechanism by reversing the process. Problem solved in 10 minutes.

My front load washer would not spin.
After receiving the part I decided not to follow the direction of the video that was suggested. Instead, I removed the top of the washer by removing the two screws that hold it on. I unplugged the washer. Then I removed the two screws in the front of the washer that held the part in. I reached down through the top of the washer, grabbed the part, unplugged all the wires, took the new part, plugged all the wires into it. Put it back in place, re-installed the screws in the front of the washer that keeps the part in place. Put the top of the washer back where it belongs and screwed it in place. I was done in less than fifteen minutes. I found this way to be little better for me because I did not have to take the seal off the washer drum. I was concerned that I would damage the seal.

Door would not close/latch.
Removed door from washer. With door on flat surface all the screws are easily removed to replace striker & door hinge/ bushings. Pay attention to bushings position when removing so as to replace them in the same position. Video shows a guy pulling the door gasket off to replace the door lock & switch assembly. Skip that & remove the top cover from the washer. Only two screws in the back hold it on & it's a lot easier to reach inside & pull the switch up than fighting with the door gasket. With the new door hinge, door closes easier & more solid than when brand new. Easy fix.

Door lock went bad and the washer would not start.
I took the lower front panel off and took the 2 screws off the switch assembly, then reach up inside and disconnect the 3 wire sets. remove the assembly. before putting in the new unit in, it helps to screw the screws in and out of the unit first it makes it easier to put them in when you install the unit. to make it easier to install I took a small piece of 2 x 4 and pushed the tub back and put the 2 x 4 between the tub and the front of the washer. install the unit remove the 2 x 4 reinstall the front panel and your done.

Front load washer would start to wash then stop agitating.
We followed video instructions provided by this site repair for the water inlet valve. We continued with door lock assembly by working through top of machine instead of taking off rubber seal. This was an option that video suggested but did not show. Washer was repaired and is now working just fine. Thank you for providing video.

Washer would not go into spin mode regardless of settings.
The video for changing the Door Lock and Switch Assembly helped, but I could not remove the rubber gasket of the front loader, as it showed there. But it was easy to slide off the top of the washer after removing two screws (unplug the washer first). Then you can unscrew the old Assembly (Part No. PS2367737). To unplug the wires and get it out, you have to snake your arm down the inside front. Someone with thin arms can do it best. Then connect the wires to the new part (easy), snake it back down in place, and screw it in as the video shows. Slide the top back on, and put the screws back on. It works great again!

Replacement of door lock assembly
I attempted the repair after watching the instructional video, however, it was not accurate for my machine because it did not show installation when the rubber boot has a retaining wire ring with spring. Unplug the machine. To remove the ring, grab the wire loop which the spring is attached to with a needle nosed pliers and gently pull it until you are able to release it from the rubber channel. Peel away the boot from the right side of the opening until you have full access to the switch, being careful not to tear it. Remove the two screws holding the switch. With the old switch free, press the small plastic retaining catch to release each electrical connection, and plug into the new switch, making sure the catches lock in place. Seat the new switch and screw in place. Gently replace the boot in its channel making sure it is laying flat all around the opening and isn't curled under anyplace. Place the wire ring back in the rubber channel with the spring at the bottom. Using the needle nosed pliers in the loop, expand the spring enough to snap it in place. Check around the opening the rubber is still laying flat and hasn't been caught by the wire and curled under. Plug in machine and you're done.

Washer would not start. When I push start, the pause would come on and I never heard the door lock.
It was very simple. I took a pair of needle nose pliers and took the locking ring from around the rubber on the inside of the door. I then removed the two screws for the door latch and removed the Lock and Switch Assembly. Simply uplugged the old one and pluged in the new one. It took less than 15mins. I called a repair company at first and they wanted to charge me 350.00. It cost me only 68.00. WOW!!! Thank You.

My washing machine would only complete the final spin cycle on the quick setting.
I followed the video instructions that were emailed along with my shipping information. It was very simple and took less than 15 minutes. My washer is working great again.

The washer just quit doing anything!
I replaced the door lock switch. I didn't remove the door seal like the video showed because it was still in great shape. I removed the top and did it that way. May have took a little longer but the door seal won't leak.
