leak suddenly developed

Somehow a bobby pin got into the drain pump housing. When it started to drain, the pin was rammed through the housing.Extremely easy to remove and replace. No special skills needed. Whirlpool did a good job in making it idiot proof. Unpacking the part took longer than installing it. Don't be afraid to do this repair. If you own a pair of pliers and a screwdriver,you can do it.

Removed three mounting screws to the front access panel, removed panel, cleaned out drain trap, attempted to reset and drain washer, pump did not operate. Removed one wire harness to pump, two hose clamps and slipped pump assembly out of its mounting grommets, and installed new pump in reverse order. A sinch! And saved me approximately $150.00 bucks in repair service fees.

Old bellow pulled loose and torn

Was able to remove old bellow without dis-assembly. Replacement required removing the front of the machine for access. Once the front was off, the bellow was simple to replace. Biggest difficulty is getting the top mark on the bellow lined up. It has a tendency to slip out of position while you are working the back of the bellow over the retaining lip and it is not possible to rotate the bellow after it is installed. Fortunately, the tube from the detergent tray can be rotated slightly to allow for a small amount of error. Replacing the front retaining wire and spring required three hands at one point, but was otherwise not a problem. Fortunately removal and replacement of the front of the machine is pretty straight forward. I needed to disconnect wires to set the front out of the way, but it is impossible to plug them back in incorrectly.

Remove three screws holding the lower panel, the pump is right up front. Probably the hardest part was holding the hose clamps open while attaching the hoses to the pump housing. One screw holds the pump assembly in place. Hold the over-ride switch closed, check for leaks, and replace the loser panel.

I removed the one screw that holds pun
mp in place. I pulled to the left and foward about an inch to remove hoses and unplug wire. then pulled pump assembly out. The new one went right in. The wire plug went right in without any customizing. I think this was about as easy as it gets.

First I made sure the washer was unplugged from the outlet and I took out 3 screws that held the front panel and removed it to get access to the pump.
I disconnected the electrical plug to the pump and there were 3 phillips head screws that held the pump in place that needed to removed. Pulled out the old pump and slide the new one in it's place with no prorblems. Tighten the 3 screws on and plugged it back in and away we went washing clothes again.

We removed the front cover to the washer. Then we removed the drain pump piece that was broken. We put the new drain pump in and secured the screws. We also inspected all the hoses to make sure the hose clamps were intact. Then leaving the front cover off the machine to inspect for leaks we turned on the wash cycle. No more problems.
