This is a not for men only job. The worst part was taking the flimsy, rusty-on-the-inside case on and off. If you've never done it before, I would recommend photographing each section that you take apart so you can more easily see how it goes back together. The video is a great help for general ideas, but unless your model is exactly like that one there may be other parts. Wiggling the clamps off the hoses wasn't easy as the wrench kept slipping of the clamp ends. Finally I figured out that a wrench that clamps on and stays put was the right answer. Replacing the pump was easy--just like in the video. Now I have a secondary problem: the water now gushes out of the standpipe when the water exits the tub. I think the pump is better than the last one even before it broke, so the water is coming out too fast. I found a little part that makes the exit hole on the drain hose a lot smaller, plus I covered it with a stocking in case the part came flying off. Last time I tested it only about a cup of water came out of the pipe. I think there may be air in the pipe, so I have some things to try for that but at least I feel like I'm going in the right direction. This site is great--I already paid for one professional repair and the washer isn't worth another one but I'd like to keep it running for a few more months anyway.

Water leaking from under the middle of the front panel.

I watched the video on the Partselect website. Appled the same technique for my machine and the repair was just as easy. Unplugged the washer, removed two screws from the top panel, flipped it up and removed the two brackets that hold the cabinet in place. Removed the cabinet, the pump is right in front held on by two clamps. Removed the clamps, unhooked the hoses, put the new pump in attached the hoses and the clamps. I then put the cabinet back together and the repair was complete, wash machine is running again with no leaks.

I watched the video on the website on how to repair this and followed it. The repair went quickly. I spent more time moving the washer in and out of the location it was in than the time it took to repair.

Water pump had a leak near the central motion core

Remove the outer washing machine housing. Close-up inspection located the leak source. The water pump was removed by popping off the upper and lower metal brackets, then removing it from the two rubber hoses with their pinch clamps. Ordering a new part was easy on your web site, and it arrived in 2 days! I reversed the process, with the smaller hose's pinch clamp hard to manage with simple pliers, but doable with persistence. I LOVE my 23 yr old whirlpool washer, and don't want a newer model, so thanks for making repairs doable for an old lady!

Disconnect washer from all connections and slide away from the wall far enough to give clearance where you can tilt the washer and lay on it's back. Remove old pump and replace with new pump, then reconnect washer to wall connections.

Water pump was leaking

  • Customer: Michael from Spencerport, NY
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers

The repair video was great. I decided not to remove the outer cover as there is room to get to the pump if the washer is tipped back. The pump was easy to fix with the exception of the root cause of the failure. There was water getting to the pump shaft and over time it rusted and expanded in the pump housing causing it to split and leak. Once the old pump was removed, a file was needed to reshape the drive shaft to allow the new pump to be installed. Not bad on a 16 year old washer!

I was very happy the part arrived very fast and just what we needed, and service was super.. We took the old pump off slipped the new one into the slot and hooked the clips back on it and tighted it up and plug the washer back in and filled with water and it drained... We started doing laundry right away, and so far so good... Tired to leave a review but it won't let us into the site, but we would use the same company to order from again, thank you so much...

Pulled the machine away from the wall about 18 inches. Tip the washer back until resting stably against the wall. Used plies to remove two spring hose clamps. Use the screw driver to remove spring clips. Pulled old pump off and placed new pump on. Replace spring clips and hoses with clamps, and lowered the washer. Done!

Water Pump leaking around shaft

  • Customer: Stanley M from Hobe Sound, FL
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
Very easy - less than 30 min. Followed installation video available on PartSelect website, except did not have to disconnect all hoses or lay on back. Left washer in place all connected and raised up on blocks about 6" off floor. Removed cabinet as per video instructions. Changed pump as per video instructions. Video from website was crucial to easy repair. Would not have known how to release cabinet latches and remove cabinet without video. Cabinet was off in 3 min. and entire job was less than 30 min.

Water left in basket at end of wash cycle-not draining

Since I live in a condo (upstairs unit) flipping the machine was not an easy option. So I was faced with having to get the remaining 2-3 gallons of water out of the drum. I rigged something up and collected 80% of the water, but be prepared for a mess. I was and it wasn't a big deal, just took more time. Once part was removed, I got online to find the part- which ranged in price from $67 at a local appliance part distributor to $49 from SearsDirect including postage. Parts select came in at $37 with freight and the part swapped out perfectly- just 2 clips that hold the pump on and 2 hose clamps (I used slip-joint pliers which works well). I checked YouTube for a video first and lo and behold, there was a video about a whirlpool water pump replacement, which helped some. Job went well and I didn't have to replace a $1200 all-in-one.

I found a repair video on You tube by Parts Select. I ordered the pump and it could not have been easier. I probably saved $200. The hardest part was lining up the cabinet to put it back in place. Patience & you'll get it. Thanks.
