Water pump leaking , machine 3 years old, but not used.

Replaced the water pump. I took this machine outside to the garage on a concrete floor so spilled water was not a problem, but if repaired inside be sure to have some rags for spilled water. Turn off water to machine. REALLY easy to do. Tilt the washer on it's back. No need to remove any side or front panels. Use a pair of channel lock pliers to move the two water line hose clips up onto the water line. Then release the two water pump retaining clips that holds the pump to the motor. Lift the old pump off, set the new back on put the clips back on, push the two hoses on and set the clamps back down. Just be sure to put the clamps close to the end of the hose, if you leave the clamps too far up on the hose, you may have a small water seep from the clamp.

Screeching noise, would not drain at all.

Got on the PartSelect website and diagnosed the problem, purchased the replacement part, received the part in 2 days....very quick. I simply watched the "how to" video for the part, which was very easy to understand, and followed the instructions and was able to take out the old part (found it to be broken), replace it with the new part and fixed the washer. It took about 40 minutes, and everything works great. Easy, cheaper and faster than calling a repairman.

Unscrewed and flipped back control panel. Unplugged lid switch and removed fron/side/lid sheet metal. Disconnected hoses from the pump, removed pump retaining clips and switched to new pump. Reversed procedure, plugged machine back in and everything worked like new. There was no need to lay the machine on it's back as instructed by the video. It would helped pins that hold the sides in place (at bottom rear) where about an inch taller.

researched potential causes, found clutch dust under the washer and determined that it wouldn't engage because clutch was too worn. ordered the assembly,It was very easy to install. I also noticed oil residue on the side of the washer so after more research I found out I needed to replace the transmission also. The seal on top of the unit was worn out. I ordered a new transmission and install it and now it works like new. It's very rewarding to fix your own washer. Now all my friends are fixing their own washer and dryers. Thank You!!!

Unplug washer from the electrical receptacle. Remove one phillip screw on each side from the rear of the control panel and one hexnut with plastic strap from the rear of the control panel on each side. Pull control panel towards the front of the washer. Locate gray lid switch on the top left, rear side. Remove metal grounding screw with green wire from the metal top of the washer. Detach the gray lid switch from the electrical module and remove entire switch. At this time, open the washer machine lid carefully and gently install the new lid switch. Reattach the ground wire and metal screw to the chassis. Put control panel back in it's original location, carefully align each of the rear side phillip screws and tighten. Do the same with the two hex nuts and plastic strap. Close lid and remember to plug the washer back in to the electrical receptacle. Start the washer with your normal procedure! It should now start!!! Good luck!

We have a 6 year old top loading Whirlpool washer. The drum would not spin at the end of its wash cycle when it is supposed to spin dry. I followed the video exactly and it worked great. I replaced the clutch and rubber coupling. It is not difficult if go slow and methodical and you follow the excellent video My wife washes heavy rugs often and it wore out the clutch. The washer works better than it has in a long time.
