Leaking Water Pump

  • Difficulty: Really Easy

I disconnected the washer from the water hoses and unplugged it. I laid it down on its back and the pump was right there on the bottom front. There were no clips holding the pump. With a pair of Channel Locks I disconnected the two hoses from the pump. I had to pry it off using a screwdriver. The pump shaft was rusty from the water leak so I wire brushed off. I put the new clips I ordered in place and pushed the new pump on. I then snapped the back clip on first because it was easier with a little tilt of the pump. I had to use my screwdriver to put the outside clip on. I reconnected the hoses put the wash back upright hooked up the water hoses and plugged it back in. I turned on and no leaks and is working good.

Water leaknig from underneath front

  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours

Pretty much as directed. My only issue was the rust on the old part. It made it difficult to remove the old and to put on the new one. At first the new one wouldn't fit since the rust had essentially changed the size of the metal rod the new pump had to fit on. So I had to spend time sanding down/off the rust. But in the end I was able to do it and the part works great!

Noisy Water Pump

  • Difficulty: Easy

I visually located the water pump on the washer and decided it was just as easy to put the unit on its back without removing the cover. I used slip-joint pliers to slide the hose clamps and removed the hoses (have towels and/or a shop vac handy) popped the retaining clips loose with a flat head screw driver and pulled the pump away from the washer. I set the new pump in place with one of the new retaining clips I ordered with the pump, slid the hose clamps back in place, set the second clip...done. I then installed new cogs, also an easy fix. Doing these two jobs myself saved $160 over what a repair person was going to charge. PartSelect delivery was fast and the videos and diagrams are spot on. I'm not sure I've had a better online purchase experience than I had with PartSelect.

We search on line the possible cause for our problem and Partselect offered the possible cause and solution. We watched the video on replacing the water pump.We then ordered the pump and 2 hoses.We followed the instructions and after removing the front panel, we found out one of the pump retainer was rusted away. We tried to look for local supplier and was shock that Sears was charging 20 bucks for a single retainer, which Partselect only charge dollar and eight cents. We ordered the 2 retainers on Thursday and it arrived on Saturday afternoon. We were able to fix the problem and are very happy there was no more leak. I wish the retainers come with the pump even if you include the extra cost to the pump pricing. We could have save the extra shipping charge for ordering the retainers only. I would definitely order more parts from Partselect and recommend it to my friends. Thanks again for your help.

Washer would fill up with water but not agitate or spin

The motor would hum but would not agitate or spin. Followed the PartSelect instructions on removing the cover. From other instructions I found out the start capacitor was bad. Very easy repair. Also replaced the clutch because the spin cycle would not begin without spinning it manually. FYI PartSelect had the lowest priced parts and were delivered next day with free shipping.

Washer was not spinning, but making a loud spinning noise.

  • Customer: William from Sonoma, CA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours

Disconnected power. Disconnected hot and cold, and drain hoses and placed in a plastic bucket. Pulled cover off the washer. Tilted washer onto its back. Removed 2 clips holding the pump. Disconnected wire harness from motor and removed 2 clips holding motor starting with lower clip. Removed a screw from the upper clip used for shipping. Set motor aside and removed broken pieces of the motor coupler from motor and transmission. The replacement part had a metal sleeve in the center of each white plastic ring. The old part did not. This required tapping the new ring onto both the motor and transmission shafts with a socket and makes for a tight fit. Reversed the process to put everything back together. Some alignment might be necessary to place motor to transmission. I recomment wearing thin work gloves to avoid nicks from sharp edges. I didn't. Washer is spinning again and sounds a lot better.

Washer would not always spin

  • Customer: Donald from Metter, GA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers

I purchased the part from PartSelect because it was very reasonable and it was OEM part. I have never replaced this kind of part on a washer so I figured it would take me a while. But PartSelect supplied a video showing the entire repair and that was the only reason I did not struggle with the repair. I will definitely buy any appliance parts I need in the future from PartSelect. Thanks Don

no spin out of water in drum

followed the video on the web site and repair was amazingly easy. I have two of these machines, and this same part went bad about 1 1/2 year ago, so this time i was ready for everything. Took everything apart, got rid of old broken part, replaced with new, and Bam, washer back up and running, less than 30 minutes, I am limited on space in my basement, so i didn't turn machine on its back, i did it in the upright position, just utilized some wood blocks to hold the motor during part change, and a hand spring clamp to hold pump and hoses out of my way after removing the clips that hold it on. It's not rocket science, if i can do it so can you. Good luck

Remove the cover of the washer, pull out motor, pry out motor coupler, replace. May have to hammer with a rubber mallet to get it on. Replace motor and washer cover. We also replace the water pump. It wasn't broken, but since we had the washer torn apart, decided to replace it as well. There are lots of YouTube videos to help you out.

The hardest part was understanding how to take the cabinet apart. The "exploded" parts diagrams at PartSelect helped immensely.
