After figuring out the shell was not gonna come apart easily, as some videos show for Whirpool, Kenmore.., to gain access to the water pump, I decided to try a trick I'd heard of before and try to get to it from the bottom. Since most washing machines have their water pumps in the front, I pulled it out enough to be able to lean it back against the wall and look underneath. Be very sure you have unplugged the machine from the outlet! Also be sure to support it from falling forward. The hoses and pump were easily accessible from this position.Using the pliers to remove the hose clamps, I could wiggle the hoses off easily. Be prepared for some water to run out, because there will be some in there. After removing the hoses, the clips holding the water pump on were easily removed with my fingers, you might need a screwdriver to loosen the clips. With the clips pulled back, or removed if you turn them 90 degrees the pump should pull off the shaft of the motor easily. A gentle tapping will usually loosen any stuck pump.Once the old pump is removed, line up the shaft of the motor and pump's sleeve with flat sides matching and it should slide on easily. Do not force it, it should slide on easily if lined up properly. Replace the clips holding the pump to the motor. Reconnect the hoses, slide the clamps back into place with the pliers, and you should be ready to Rock-n-Roll. Lower the machine, and slide it back into place. Hope this helps all of those that choose to repair their own Crosley washing machine with a new water pump.

Intermittently the spin cycle would not empty the tub fully

First off, let me say two things, this was my very first washer repair and the installation video was excellent.

Few things though ..... The first thing I noticed was the old parts I removed did not look that bad to me. I was starting to wonder if I was wasting my time. However, its apart now I'll continue on. I had a hard time properly seating the new couplings on either end correctly. They were VERY snug. What I ended up doing was getting a 20mm deep socket that fit perfectly onto the coupling and with a hammer gently, (and I underline gently) tapped the new parts into place. That fixed that problem. I also had some minor difficulty putting the cabinet back together, but nothing earth shattering. The cabinet fits on top of the frame, not under. And lastly, the small clips that hold the console on were not very reusable afterwards so I'll need to order a new set of them sometime.

All-in-all it was a fun repair that didn't take me too long and I saved quite a bit. I definitely would do it again if necessary. I've done about 5 loads of laundry since and everything seems to be working great so far.

Unplugged the washer and removed the two screws from the control panel. Raised the control panel and disconnected the wire connector that connected to the top.Then removed the two spring clips that hold the cabinet to the back of the washer. removed the cabinet from the washer that exposed the frame of the washer. I then replaced the broken spring by pushing the tub of the washer as far as it would go and replaced the suspension spring. Then i reinstalled the cabinet and control panel. Everything worked okay. ood as new.

Pumps but won't spin, leaks, top of agitator doesn't move

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

My repair was successful but was not as easy as some have reported. I needed to replace the coupler, but when I tried to remove the pump from the motor, the shaft was rusted and wouldn't budge. I pried and wiggled and used WD-40 to no avail. I ended up taking off the motor and pump as a unit. After replacing the coupler and reassembling the washer, the water pump leaked, probably as a result of all of the prying. To get the water pump off, I had to cut it into pieces, using a hack saw. Even when I got down to the end, I had to peel pieces of plastic off of the rusted shaft. I then had to file and sand the shaft to get it so that it would fit into the new pump. After putting the washer together again and running it through its cycles, I noticed that the top half of the agitator was not turning. I then ordered and installed the agitator repair kit. Through all of this, my orders were all correct and arrived in amazingly fast times. The videos were all very helpful. Even though it was a trial a times, I still saved a pile of money.

The washer would intermittently not spin for the last 5 months. Water would drain on the spin cycle but not spin. Read several websites on the problem but only one hit it exactly.

First watched YouTube video "Kenmore/Whirlpool washer not spinning", excellent video .Disconnected water hoses and drain hose. Unplugged the washer from the outlet. Removed the agitator from the washer tub then tipped the washer backwards resting on a secure block of wood for support not fully on the floor. Removed under insulation, removed both water pump hoses. Have towels ready when hoses are removed, there is still water in the hoses. Removed the water pump, disconnected the electrical connector from the pump motor, removed the bolts from the motor that attached the motor clips, removed the motor clips from the bracket and removed the motor assembly. Video shows motor, bracket and gearbox removed as one unit. Very heavy. Remember motor position on the bracket for reassembly, I used yellow marker. Removed the bracket the mounts the motor. Removed the bolts for the gearbox and began to lower the gearbox. The agitator shaft on the gearbox is pretty long so I had to tilt the washer some more to remove. After the gear box was removed I could now see the spin clutch, which according to the video was definitely bad. PartSelect had the correct part, reasonably priced. Ordered normal FedEx delivery, part arrived in 2 business days. Instructions came with the part for very easy installation. Installed the new clutch and reassembled the washer. Before reconnecting the washer hoses and drain, I plugged in the washer, manually placed timer on spin, washer spun, could not see spin but felt washer in spin cycle. Reattached water and drain hoses. Filled washer empty with cold water and placed timer again in spin cycle. Water drained, no leaks under washer or from hoses, spin cycle good. Repair done, works great.

noise caused b y broken coupler between motor and transmission during "spin" and not spinning

removed motor and broken coupler... installed new coupler and replaced motor. also removed pump to inspect for sock, etc. that that might have caused coupler to break.. ADVICE: Look for how-to video on YouTube first. Remove outer cabinet according to video by first removing the top control panel and then remove the outer cabinet which exposes the motor and pump. This way you will not have to tip machine up/back and work under it. This repair is made easily by first removing the outer cabinet.

I followed the instructions from a YouTube video, just do a Google search for the make, model, and what the problem is and several videos will come up to pick from. Everything went just as described in the video, took about 10-min to take the motor out, a couple of minutes to replace the broken motor coupling, and another 10-min to put it back together - slick.

Before I even watch any partselect videos to do the repair, which I should of from the very beginning, ah, ja, ja, I had already disassembled the back panel "my way" to the washer and trouble shooting the washer with my wife's help. While she tilted the washer backwards, I looked under and we found that the noise was coming from in between top of the motor where the direct drive motor coupling is located and the clutch assembly came together which I learned along with names and functions after watching the partselect installation video. Nice! Once I received the part it took me like 45 minutes to put all back together. Took loose two screws to clips holding the motor, pulled motor of mounting bracket finding the broken piece, replaced it, recouped reinstalling motor onto the motor bracket, clip, clip the two little screws and walla, got the wife her washer back, at bed time rewards, peace of mind the rest was history... Thanks PartSelect for awesome videos and great customer service!

Followed the video and instructions included with part. At first we did not think the repair was successful, but after several small loads were run, squealing stopped. The washer is 16 years old and so far is running like new. We certainly appreciated the great customer service. The part was delivered in less than 24 hours.
