Anything i really need to know before i attempt to do it myself?

Hello again, oldfixer guru, lol , I am as you may have read my reply to your post to me, i am going to attempt to order the part as one unit lol and fix it myself, is there anything in your expertise, remember be patient with me I am a girly girl, that you think I should know to do, I know I should always unplug the washer before attempting to do any repairs (I am only repair challenged), is there anything else you suggest I saw that there were also hoses but these hoses seem fine, although i havent taken the back of the machine apart yet, the valves are covered by the entire back plate of the machine I am already overwhelmed thinking about seeing the guts of the machine...scarey,,,so let me know the no nos and never evers before I go to the front lines........thank you again oldfixer,sincerely and wobbley knees hands shaking and brave all in one, Tamara

Actually shouldn't be that hard i'm assuming that is just washer not a stacked washer/dryer..get a putty knife (or dull butter knife)press release clips along top edge of washer top lifts up with top as far back as possible you should be able to reach into corner where valve is ..remove rear mounting screws in valve ..pull valve up where you can get to it remove wires then small hose ..reverse for reassembly..where do you live ..i could retire next week with the prices you're being quoted

Hello (again) Mike,
Sorry to hear it isnt the coupler that by far is the most common thing taht will make noise,
A few more things that could cause the noise are where the clutch engages the basket drive is broke. Ilove videos to show since i picture is wortha 1000 words! on this video is shows how to get to the clucth. at the 2 minute 9 second mark it shows the white part...thats what im talking about that may be broken...if that too looks ok the basket drive ears are probably going to be broke off where the drive block locks into the drive block this video shows how to replace the drive block note the 2 notches on that drive block..where they fit onto the long tube those ears could be broke off. Reply and let me know if you need help

Why does the cold water never shut off. I am retired and have had many problems with this that . I work on myself. I bought it for quality and to save money that I don't have. so I have to repair it...

Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
This is normally a water inlet valve failure on the machine itself this is very common what you will want to do is to first turn off the water to the machine and remove the hoses and clean the inlet sides very well air works really well for this then attach the hoses and unplug the machine for 5 min then plug iit back in then turn on the water and try it again and if it is still leaking then you know that the vave itself is faulty and needs to be replaced this is normally a 35 dollar part ok? you can get it from your local machine parts dealer please try this first ok then post back to me and i will tell you how to remove the part if needed really not too hard ok?
Best regards Mike

I have a maytag neptune, model # mah3000aww. Its making a loud howling sound during spin cycle.

It sounds like the drum bearings may need replacing. This is not a small job, so be sure of what you're doing before you attempt to fix it yourself. Please feel free to get back to me for instructions on replacing the seal and bearings.

Fisher & Paykel GWL15 washer stops during wash, beeps, and displays the 3rd, 6th, and 8th lights. The problem began intermittently about a week ago; however, powering off, changing the cycle, and...

Hi just read your posting.Now error code 37 is called pump block error.This means either your drain pump is jammed, or the drain pump is blocked or the pressure switch tube that regulates the water level is kinked or blocked or the motor controller is faulty.Does your machine always drain the water?Please reply and let me know if your machine is draining the water and we can track the fault down.Looking forward to your reply.
