Hi Bob,

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life.

Here is a video that demonstrates this procedure on a washer that is similar to yours;



Always unplug or de-energize electrical equipment before removing covers or attempting service. Be careful and wear appropriate hand protection when working around sharp metal parts.

The washer in this video may not look exactly like yours but the procedure is basically the same.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website;

Sears Home Services
