With assistance the washer was walked out the door to the deck where it could be drained.
The machine was examined, and the pump identified. THEN I found this site while looking
for the part. Had I started here, I would have learned that I could service in place by just
tilting it back against the wall! The part was identified, and phone call made to charming
rep and part arrived in a few days. Do be careful to keep track of the latches that clamp
the pump in place, as they can fall out when not clamped down on the pump.
No unusual tools or skills needed. Door clearance and outside temperature were greatest
issue for us, and wasn't even necessary.
As it was, my wife worked diligently to remove the inhaled sock from the pump. We gave up
on that as the #1 complaint on this pump was 'leaking'. Had I started here, repair time
would probably have been less than 30 min hands on time. We spent much more.
