I lifted the machine up with one hand while lying on the floor and installed the new pump after aligning the motor shaft to the pump. I then snapped the pump onto the motor shaft and added the top and bottom "keeper snaps". That was it.

Many kudos to the folks who posted here. The instructions with the part didn't help much, but your comments did. I found it quite easy to replace the retaining clips using a pair of pliers at their wide setting to press the clip back into place. Oh, and when you tip the washer over, have a can of bug spray handy, you might be upsetting a black widow or two.

Water leak coming out front of washer

When water started pouring out of our washer, I removed the pump. A pair of pliars removes the two hose clamps, and there are two clips that you remove with your hands to get the pump off. The pump looked fine, so I took it to the sink, and put some water in it. I then plugged one hose "port" with my hand and blew hard into the other. Water squirted out. There was a fine crack in th eplastic of the pump. I mixed up some 2 part epoxy and put it over the crack. This fixed the problem for a little over a month. Then the pump got more leaks, so I ordered a pump from here, that arrived in 2 days. I quickly replaced it, and it works great.

1) Tilt washer back to get to pump and motor under washer. 2) Pop off clips with screwdriver, holding pump to motor. 3) Use pliers to remove hose clamps from hoses to pump. Use a small bucket to catch small amount of water in the pump. 4) Reverse steps to install new pump

After learning how to take apart my waher I saw the lid switch aseembly was falling apart. I ordered the new one, came in about 3 days. As soon as I figured out how to take the old one out the new one went in with no problems and was very excited to have my washer working again.

Leaking Water Pump

When water began leaking from the bottom of our washer, I immediately thought it might be a leaking tub. But I did a little research on the internet and found out how easy it is to get into the machine so I could investigate the problem. When I found the source of the leak, it still seamed a little difficult to repair until I found this website. Not only did I find the part I needed at a fair price, but the video explaining the repair procedure was easy to follow. The repair itself turned out to be quite simple and easy. And the best part is that I saved time and a huge repair bill. I couldn't find a repairman quickly and I suspected they wouldn't even have the part in stock. Thanks, Parts Select!

The most difficult part was getting the back off the washer. The rest was pretty straight forward. My husband did the work in about 45 min. The part was around $20 so I guess we saved at least $200. I thought I ordered the wrong part and called to cancel but the customer service rep double checked and assured me it was the correct item. I received the part within 2 days. I was going to buy a new washer since this one is 20 years old but the plumber said it was a good one, better than the new ones out there. Great service, great selection, great price.

It would not spin or agitate.

I googled the problem and up popped partselect.com with the part that was probably needed. The part was priced very low and shipped very quickly. After ordering on Tuesday I received the part on Friday. It was rated as being an easy fix. I watched the video provided and followed the video instructions step by step. The only hard part was snapping the motor clip back into place.

Washer was filling very slowly and making a very loud noise.

Following the very simple instructions from the internet, I moved the washer from it's space next to the dryer, removed the outer shell, removed and replaced the water inlet valve, turned on the water, checked for leaks, reinstalled the outer shell and the job was done. Total time from start to finish, approximately 20 minutes and this repair was made by an 82 year old man ( a former Marine!). The valve was ordered from PartSelect on the Memorial Day weekend and arrived the following Wednesday. The price, with shipping, was as good or better than any other source that I checked and shipping was extremely fast! I am not associated with PartSelect in any manner - just a very satisfied customer!

The washer failed while I was doing laundry. The first load completed it's cycle and the buzzer sounded. The clothes were very wet indicating that the final spin did not occur. I started the second load and the pump filled the tub but agitation didn't begin. The motor could be heard running freely (

After determining which parts seemed to have failed and locating them on the PartSelect website, I watched the excellent installation video and read some of the customer notes on their repair experiences. I then followed those examples. One thing was different for me. The shaft bushings on the new coupling parts were a tight press fit on the motor and transmission shafts and could not be pushed completely into place with my fingers. After starting them with my fingers I used a 3/4" wooden dowel and light mallet to gently tap the parts the rest of the way on. If this happens to you, be careful to keep the dowel centered directly on the metal bushing and avoid putting pressure on the white plastic(?)coupling body. The washer works like new again.
