The video on PartSelect.com regarding replacing the washer machines drain pump with pulley was extremely helpful. By following the simple instructions as shown in the video, I was successful in replacing my washing machines pump in less than an hour, and saved myself the labor costs a repairman would have charged me for a really simple and easy repair job. I was also extremely happy and impressed with PartSelect.com. The price I paid for the part was very competitive and arrived within 3 days. I was very glad to see the pump and pulley assembly was a Whirlpool factory certified part and not a knock-off or reconditioned part.

I followed write ups on this web site and the job was straight forward. As far as the washer brake rotor I did not need to replace it. After removing the six screws that cover the assembly I noticed some rust and dirt so cleaned it with degreaser and reassembled it. I have no loud screeching sounds when the spin cycle comes to an end. As always PartSelect did a great job getting the correct parts to me with in a few days, thanks.

Removing and replacing the pump was a very easy process. Once the belt was removed on the bottom of the machine, I removed the back plate to gain access to the pump. Three screws and a couple of clamps holding the hoses on the pump. There was a little more water in the pump during removal than anticipated. Other than that, it was an easy fix.

The repair went smoothly with no issues or problems. The video link sent with the receipt made all the difference in the world. I watched the video on my iPad as I was doing the repair. Also locating the parts I needed on the part select website could not have been simpler.

Lid on washmachine was loose. Found that one of the plastic hinge pins had broken.

Ordered two new hinge pins as well as hinges. (Did not want to have to deal with it again so chose a full change out.) Watched a U-Tube video that described how to change out the hinges. The trick is find out how to lift the top panel on the washer to access the screws that anchor the hinges. Use a putty knife and slide it into the space between the top panel and the front panel. Got the job done today in an hour or so. Chose to also wipe out the top of the wash tub at the same time so it took a bit longer. Works fine now. Just like new.

Washer was off balance

Cause:The main problem was the snubber ring got destroyed from continuously overloading the washer. That lead to the unit becoming off balance which in turn broke the belt pully off of the water pump and wore out the tub springs. Solution: Procedure 1: Make sure to turn off the water going to the machine, unplug the hoses and the power cord and if you have room take it out away from the wall. even after it is drained there will still be some water in the unit so keep a good size towel on hand. The pump is the easiest part to replace; simply lay the machine forward so that you can get to the back panel and the bottom at the same time. Remove the panel and the pump is just inside. remove the belt from the bottom of the unit then remove the black hoses from the pump taking note how they are situated and the size difference. Remove the bolts that attach the pump to the housing then lift the pump out through the opening; unless you have purchased new bolts you are going to want the old ones for the reinstall since the new pump probably doesn't come with any. Also, the replacement pump may not have the same mounting bracket but it will mount just fine without it. now simply install your new pump in the same position as the old, secure it to the housing and reattach the belt. Procedure 2: Now for the springs; this is a little more difficult and it is going to take some muscle and patience. Do not remove all of the springs at once, trust me! lol! The easiest way to do this is to remove one spring at a time and replace it with a new one; just make sure to mark them as you go or at least remember where you started. Only a few of them are accessible from the panel in the rear but if you tilt the machine back upright the whole front of the machine can be removed very easily. First you must remove the top; to do this there are two brackets on the back at the top behind the instrument panel that can be removed with a Phillips head screw driver. after they are removed pry the front of the whole top panel up, there are only two brackets holding it down. Remove the two screws that you have uncovered at the front and remove the front panel by lifting up slightly and pulling forward. you can now get to the rest of the springs. Take note how everything was removed and reverse process to put it all back together. Thanks and goodluck!

loud noise when spinning

  • Customer: Brian from Allison Park PA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Socket set, Wrench(Adjustable)

The video is really helpful. The clamps on one of the hoses slowed me down. It took some contorting to get the clamps compressed and at the right angle to secure the hose. My lack of patience was probably the culprit. FYI: My failed pump made no grinding sounds. Nor was there any resistance when turning the pulley. But the problem was indeed the pump. Working well now.

A periodic loud noise during the Spin cycles

  • Difficulty: Really easy

This is a quick and easy repair. Start by using the putty kiife to depress and unlock the washer top. Remove the front panel of the washer by removing the two screws on eithe side at the top. The front panel then lifts off. Next you will want to tilt the unit up and remove the fan belt. Put the washer back down flush and remove the hoses to the drain pump located at the front an right side of the bottom plate. Once the hoses are removed you can remove the three retnetion screws, take the pump out, put the new pump in and fianlly replace the rentention screws and hoses. Put everything back together in reverse order and don't forget the fan belt. Takes all of 15 minutes of your time and you save 150 dollars labor.

The videos included in the shipping notification email made the repair a breeze. The only thing not shown was (at least on my washer) that the screws that needed to be removed had torex heads instead of normal slot or phillips heads. Luckily my tool crib had what I needed.
