After some research, it seemed like the water pump was the culprit since I knew all of the hoses were good. My washer was a little different from the one in the repair video. My washer didn't have the gauges on a hinge, so it sort of had to hang there. Also, there were no spring clips on the interface/dashboard, there were screws at the back of the washer that I had to unscrew which allowed me to lift up the dashboard so that I could remove the clips from the back to the main panel that surrounds the front/sides. Because my washer was old, I had the most difficulty just pulling the old pump off and putting the side/front panel back on the front of the machine. The video was obviously from a guy replacing a part on a brand new washing machine. Just work the part gently back and forth and you should be able to remove if it doesn't come off right away. I've run 2 loads of laundry through the washing machine with no leaks, so this fix was cheap and awesome!

Water wouldn't drain after wash cycle.

Using the part select website, I discovered that 64% of the time, replacing the water pump will fix the drain problem so I ordered that part. I laid the washer on it's back. And was able to unclip the water hoses, detach the pump and install the new one. The parts select website has great instructional videos to help but in this case, the video recommended removing the outer skin from the washer which I found unnecessary.

Leakt water pump

Forget the instruction book, it's too time consuming and it's a knuckle buster. Disconnect all hoses and lay machine on it's back. (Have plenty of rags to soak up the half gallon of water still in the pump). Use pliers to slide back hose clamps on pump and slide off hoses. Use screw drive to snap off clamps holding pump in place. Remove pump. Simply reverse process to install new pump. It nearly was one of my wife's 5 minute jobs she always has on her "Honey Doo" list.

Water was not being drained from my washer

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.

Replace leaking water pump

  • Customer: Dewey from DeRuyter NY
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

The repair video was very helpful and exactly right. The most difficult task was removing the old pump. It had apparently seeping between the motor shaft and the pump coupler for some time and had rusted the pump to the motor shaft. I had to aggressively grip the pump housing with the channel lock pliers and wrench it back and forth to break it loose. I took a file to remove the rust build up from the motor shaft before installing the new pump. Washer works fine.

After removing the front, sides and top of the machine (all one piece) the springs were relativley easy to access. I discover one of the brakets that held one of the springs had rusted and would no longer support the spring. I then replaced the bracket and springs. I Re-assyembled the machine and it work as good as new.

Have replaced the rubber "dogs" in the agitator before. Washer had an extended service contract that expired in 1986. It just won't die.
