Appliance: Roper Automatic Washer RAX7245KQ1 My Repair & Advice

After reading your troubleshooting guide and determining that the direct drive motor coupling could be the cause of the problem,I watched the video and knew I could do the repair myself.I ordered the part for unbelievable low price of $10.51,the part arrived in three days.I followed instructions step by step using my iPad to watch the video.The old style coupling in transmission was broken giving me confidence that would fix the problem.I put everything back together per video,the new coupling was newer version and needed to be tapped into place.Repair was completed in 17 minutes.I have to admit it took me longer to put the front cover on than the repair.I would get one side of cabinet bottom on the other side would pop out.I watched video and saw that I needed to tilt the cabinet to go under the front lip of the tub unit.Once I figured that out it was smooth sailing.Thanks AppliancePartsPros for such low prices and the outstanding easy to follow video.
