Water leak coming out front of washer

  • Customer: Ramo from sylvan grove KS

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.

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!

Using the video I was able to remove the outer frame and found the water pump was leaking. Ordered a new part and using the video was able to replace without a problem. Machine works great, no leaks. My son and son-in-law said just replace the machine...well once I found the problem, was an easy fix. The hardest part was lining up the outer frame so the fitting was right. I'm 65 young and yes women you can do it!!

Let me start by saying that I only had to wait one day for the new water pump. Awesome! Once I figured out how to accessed the waterpump, the real challenge began. The washer had been leaking for some time and removing the old pump turned out to be more difficult than expected. The bottom clip used to secure the pump was completely rusted. It took some effort to remove the old pump but it finally came off. Once it was removed, I discovered why it was so difficult. The drive shaft from the motor was so rusted that a groove had been worn into it. I ended up using a metal file to smooth off the rust in order to install the new pump. With a bit of coaxing, I was able to install the new pump, re-attach the hoses and re-assemble the machine. It works like a charm now. No more leaking! Yeah!

Friday night removed back, Electronic controls, and remaining cabinet. Inspected direct drive pump and it was damp. Removed part. Total Time 20 minutes to this point. Spent next 45 minutes on-line trying to order the correct part and get it as soon as possible. Paid for overnight delivery, but it showed up Monday. Installed part then re-assembled Washer in reverse order. Total Time 30 minutes. Tested the Washer. Noticed water was not filling. Turned valves back on. All worked well. Washer is used several times a day. It's now 2 weeks later and still running well. I'm very mechanically inclined and I have an electronics background so it seemed very easy to me. I think anyone could do this, but it may take more time to determine how to disassemble and reasseble by researching it on the internet.

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.

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.

After my brother told me what the problem was. I looked on line to find the best deal for the part. I was thrilled to find a video on how to change the part. My back was bothering me so I walked my daughter through the process. She did great and she was pretty impressed that I knew how to change the part. I wanted to take the credit, but had to fess up. I did tell her I'm not just another pretty face!!!
