Leaking Direct Drive Water Pump

  • Tools Required: Pliers

I noticed a leak on the floor. I check the hoses for tightness on the back of the washer and the hoses going to the facets and drain. After disconnecting the hoses going to the washer, facet and drain, I then flip the washer on it's back and examined the underside for wetness. All the underside hoses appeared to be not leaking. I then disconnected the two hoses going to the pump with channel-locks, and I disconnect the two clips holding the pump with just my hand and removed the water pump. I then poured water into the hoses' opening on the water pump itself, and I discovered a slow leak occurring from the shaft area on the water pump. I searched PartSelect and luckily found a water pump that matched. I then installed the new water pump (after receiving it a few days later) in reversed procedures of disconnecting the old water pump. I tested the washer by adding a little bit of water into the washer then switch the dial to spin cycle in order to empty the water inside the washer--no leaks occurred and I was extremely happy.

Unplugged the machine, removed the rear panel and then removed the old water inlet valves. Replaced the water valves with the new one purchased through Parts Select. Installed the back panel on the machine, plugged the machine in and reconnected both the hot and cold water hoses. Tested machine works like a new one again, problem resolved.

Because your video was done so well, it only took about 10 minutes to make the replacement. I was really impressed when my tracking notice was e-mailed it included the link to the instructional video. I will recomend your web site to others.

Center stack (auger) did not turn with agitator

  • Customer: Ronald from West Chester, PA
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Socket set

I was skeptical that this would take less than 15 minutes, but it actually took closer to 5 minutes! (1) Remove the fabric softener cup from the top of the auger by pulling up on the collar as indicated. (2) Pry the cap off the auger with a small screwdriver. (3) Use a long 1/2 inch socket extender (with no socket on it) to unscrew the plastic retainer for the mechanism at the top of the auger. Remove the mechanism. (4) In the mechanism, there's a thin collar holding in the agitator directional cogs. Pry that collar up to remove it. This was the trickiest part. I was afraid of breaking that collar but it survived. (5) Replace the cogs. (6) Reverse the previous steps.

Washing Machine would not agitate

  • Customer: Frederick from Ellwood City, PA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Socket set

There are 4 cogs that are in contact with a gear which slips in one direction and catches in the other direction as the agitator oscillates back and forth. Two of the cogs were broken and the agitator would no longer turn thus the cloths would not circulate properly through the wash and rinse cycles. The cogs (dogs), by some manufacture’s name, cost $3.83 and just over 10 dollars total including S&H.
There is also an excellent video on the PartSelect site which shows exactly how to remove the agitator, dismantle and then reassemble it. The cogs were simple to replace.
I would not have had the slightest idea how to do this without the video. My first thoughts, when I saw that the agitator wasn't working were A:Oh no I'm going to need to tear the washing machine completely apart to fix the problem or B:Replace the whole washing machine.....I'm sure there are many folks who would have just given up and used plan B. This is a great Website! I'm sure I'll be back here for other household repairs.

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.

Two screws on the back of the washer releases the top control panel. Then unplug one plug and hang the top over the back of unit. Two clips removes the sides and top which gives you access to the pump. You then remove the two hose clams and the hoses and two more clamps hold the pump on. Reverse the process hook up the water and plug it back in.

Parts Select is AMAZING!! It directed us to the correct parts. Ordering was easy. But the best part was the videos. The step by step instruction was a godsend. We followed it, paused it, compared it, did it. We had to battle grease and tight quarters, but got it done. The machine works good. We spent about $65 as opposed to $400+ for a new washer. Great website.

When my 13 yr old washer stopped working the timing was not at all good to spend money on a new one. I have two of my children getting marriied within the next year and funds are tight. I decided to troubleshoot it myself online by googling my problem. I found out what I thought would be the parts I needed, I took a chance and ordered them. The bonus was the videos that you emailed me with the complete installation instructions. I am a banker and a 53 yr old woman ...not exactly a handy man. With your videos I was able to fix my washer by my self for just the cost of parts...so my wedding budget is still in place. I highly reccommend PartSelect for anyone...cause If I can do it anyone can do it! Thank you PartSelect

This was a simple repair. I simply placed washer on its back. Then used some channel lock pliers to remove the clamps and hoses. Released the clips holding the pump in place. Removed the pump. Reversed the order and it was complete.

Tilted the machine back. Done carefully the hoses can all stay connected. Removing the pump from the motor first makes it easier to access the clamps on the hoses. Be sure to have a pan handy to catch the excess water out of the drain hose when you disconnect it. Connect the hoses to the new pump. rotate the shaft on the motor to line it up with the hole in the back of the pump. Clip the pump back in place, set the washer back in place and it's all over. It took me more time to file this repair story than it did to perform the repair.
