well i replaced a lot of parts..but i think it was the the lid switch. but now its brand new..Thanks
Were these instructions helpful?
Followed instructions provided in video. All went well. The hardest part was getting the washer "shell" back on its frame. Fortunately I had all the right words in my swearing toolkit! THANK YOU for this resource (thumbs up)
Repair time of the problem was easier than moving the washer out of a very tight laundry area. The repair was much easier than I anticipated. The parts fit perfectly , And it was successful.
The first repair I did was to replace the direct coupling.Although the coupling was worn, it did not fix the problem. So the next repair I did was to replace the clutch. i watched the video on the repair and decided to not remove the cabinet. I removed the hoses and unplugged the washer. I laid the washer on its side and removed the 2 clips holding the water pump. I pushed the water pump aside, and removed the 3 bolts holding the transmission. The motor and transmission can now be removed as a unit.I followed the video instructions and replaced the clutch.The repair worked and the washer now spins the water out of the clothes. I am very pleased with the videos and quality parts and fast shipping from this site.
The video and other posts on this repair were GREAT! I did not remove the housing just drained the lines and laid it on its back and did the rest as described in the posts and in the video, just could not see quite as much when removing the staps from the pump and motor. Went very well about 45 min. from disconnecting the hoses and removing the washer from the closet, to doing the repair and back in the closet hooked up and ready to go. Have a couple old rags on hand to wipe things and your hands, mine was not as clean as the washer in the video.
I decided to attempt to replace both the clutch and the drive coupling. I had to take apart the couple to do the clutch anyway. Unfortunately I was unable to remove the couple plastic/fiberglass pieces so I only replaced the rubber coupler. The transmission; however, was covered in clutch dust. I put the new one in, put it back together and notice my clear plastic drum was disgusting, so I tore it apart somewhat to clean it. Then put it all back together and it works like a champ. Awesome videos for instruction. Next time something fails I am shopping here first.
I followed the UTube repair to the T except the first step was not simple. The bolt head inside the agitator was completely corroded. I drilled the head off removing chips with a magnet until the hole was deep enough to break the head off with a pin punch. After removing the transmission, I was gratified that the bolt protruded about 1/2", very easy to remove with vice grips. Using a little liquid wrench the bolt was easily removed. The local hardware was out of fine thread 5/16" bolts so it took some looking to find one. Other than that, it was just as easy as the UTube video.
We watched a video showing what to do and it was no problem at all. It was also very helpful with website asking what the problem was so we would order the right parts. Very satisfied customer!
replaced the clutch assembly using the online videos available---found it to be an easy straight forward fix
I followed the videos and it went amazingly smooth. Watch the videos! I could have stopped at the Direct Drive Motor Coupling as this was the evident problem. The rubber coupling itself had developed oversized holes where the drive pins of the motor assembly connect to the drive pins of the transmission. However, having the clutch and directional cog assembly, I decided to install everything. Everything was easy to access, and although I had knee surgery the day before I was able to complete the repair with no damage to the machine or myself.
