Here's a start.
Type in 'Sears parts direct" on your computer.
Then, type in your model number.
You will get pictures of your machine, every part there is.
Perhaps you can figure which part you will need.
God bless your efforts.

It jump when it getsn on its last spin and the letter ul appeares we have lever it off but it still keep jump the tub what can you tell me to do to fix it


Adjust your washer's front legs and lock the nut, it has another nut to do this. After you hav locked the legs, try to rock the washer with your hands, it should not rock. Another thing to check will be inside your washer, after taking the power off the wall socket. Check to see if some springs or the shocks (dampers) have come loose. This normally happens when the load is not even, that is when you hav a big sheet in one part of the washer tub. Spread out the clothes evenly before you commence the wash.
To see if washer is firm: hold the front portion of the washer, the 2 corners and try to shake it, if it does not move, it is fine.

Front load washer is bouncing around when spinning clothes. It's like it's unbalanced.

Pump: If you are handy at all this is simplicity itself. Check the pump - slide pump to left and lift and it comes clear. Take off 2 black hoses only where connected to main machine. Pull off electrical connection. (make note where wires go) Pump and hoses lift out easily. 3 screws open the pump. Clean any obstruction and reassemble.

Washing a full load is better than 2 or 3 small loads, saves electricity, etc. But if there is a loud spin noise, means that your bearings are wearing out. Is your belt too tight?
For the smelly washer:
You can use Affresh to clean your front loader. Deposits of soap and other such things can be stuck around the inside tub of your washer. Try this product, it works great on all front loaders. Use very hot water with the Affresh pellet with no clothes and run the machine through a cycle. Also helps with any stagnant water smells. Put the Affresh pellet inside the machine, not in the soap dispenser.

For most front-loaders: rubber boot, seal
Remove the top, screws behind the top lid. Slide an inch away from you & lift up. Remove old seal. Lubricate the slot which fits over the tub with washing-up fluid, if you find resistance. Starting at the top, press the seal so the flange of the tub enters the slot on the seal. Work your way round the using thumbs to force the slot on the tub flange. When slot is on the flange all way round, fit the spring which holds it on. The spring goes into a slot on the outside of the seal. This is quite difficult and you may need another pair of hands. Fit the outside of the seal to the cabinet - this is easy and fit the plastic clamping ring.
Test for leaks before using. Use rinse to test as the water level is higher.

How do you clean the inside of your Front Loading washer?


This can be accomplished by running the washer empty for a quick rinse cycle. Add an entire cup of bleach at the start of the cycle. The bleach is effective at destroying organisms, such as mold and bacteria. However, running it once will not be completely effective. I suggest pouring another cup of bleach into the wash tub, after the cycle has completed. This will leave bleach as the standing pool and should prevent the growth of mold or bacteria. However, if you do this, before doing a load of laundry you should run an empty rinse cycle again, to avoid damage to the clothes from the bleach left standing in the wash tub.

Machine will not go into Spin Cycle. Clothes remain soaking wet after Rinse Cycle.


The answer depends on the make and model of your machine. If it's an older top loading washer, it is very likely that the transmission needs to be replaced/repaired.

Inside most top loading washer transmissions is a small part that lets the motor drive the transmission in either the agitation mode or the spin mode. When this part shifts back and forth to the two different positions for wash or spin. When it locks the transmission into the spin position, the motor and transmission can now spin the wash tub to help remove excess water from the clothes. When this lock breaks, the washer will still wash and agitate and the motor will still pump out the water in the washer, but without the spinning of the tub, clothes will not be damp dry enough to be put into the dryer.

The part itself isn't much money, but the problem is that the repair isn't easy for even a good DIY'er to perform, as you have to remove the agitator, wash tub, tub seal boot, and the transmission from the cabinet just to get ready for the repair process.

IF you can even get the repair part for the broken transmission (difficult as most manufacturers only let authorized service dealers buy these sub-components these days), it will be VERY messy to disassemble the transmission and remove all the oil and broken metal pieces from the transmission lock part.and then completely clean out the inside of the transmission housing replace the gear assembly and put in the new lock piece, plus add back new, clean appliance trans oil and a new end build washer transmissions on

When I first started out as a service tech, we used to rebuild the washer transmissions on used customer "trade-ins" when we had nothing else scheduled, so we could resell the used appliances and make a few bucks.

Bottom line is that for all the time, mess and expense you're going to have to go through, it is best to buy a new washer. Especially if your washer is more than 10-12 years old, since the tub is probably starting to get rust spots, etc.

You can try to find the part or a complete replacement transmission, but I think that the cost for a complete trans is enough to warrant buying a new washer. Hope that helps you make your decision.

Just moved. New washer leaks water and appears tub is off center


CHECK THE BALANCE SPRING LOCATED (INSIDE LEFT REAR OF MACHINE). IF SPRING IS OFF IT CAN CAUSE THE TUB TO TILT TOWARD THE FRONT AND THE TUB FILL HOOD WILL NOT BE OVER THE TUB DURING FILLING OR THE TUB WILL BE ERATIC DURING THE SPIN WHEN RINSE WATER IS SPAYING IN CAUSE ING THE WATER TO MISS THE TUB AND SPRAY OUTSIDE. THIS IS COMMON IF THE UNIT HAS BEEN MOVED OR PLACED ON IT'S SIDE OR CARRIED AT EXTREME ANGLE.
