I unplugged power, then tilted washer back, leaning against wall. I removed the fan belt and manually rotated three things (motor, pump, and transmission). The water pump did not rotate smoothly. I then ordered the watere pump. To install the pump, I simply removed the water supply lines and opened the access panel on the back of the washer. Replacing the pump is as easy as removing 3 bolts and two hoses, installing the new one, and reconnecting. Then reconnect water supply and belt on bottom of the washer.

Broken hinge on washer lid.

Don't get unhinged by this easy repair. Easily ordered on line and got the part in two days. The only hard part was the screw was inside up under the washer body and not visible. I had to use an "s" shaped screw driver to take out and put in one screw due to the small work space.

My son raised the washer whilee I removed and replace the drive belt. After replacing the drive belt the loud noise when spinning is still there so don't know where the noise is coming from. The clothes after the spend cycle were normal. The video really help figure where the drive belt was located.

Posted instructions/videos were on the mark.
Some springs are more difficult to reach, so disconnecting the entire cabinet from the base to gain access from different angles helps a lot to connect/disconnect the springs.

Watched videos on how to replace the hose. Armed with the information I started the process. But the videos were wrong. After removing a bunch of screws and not getting to the hose I removed the inspection panel on the rear,three screws and there was the hose.simple. I wished I had not watched the videos.

I remove the necessary panels, hoses and electrical section and removed the tub springs and pulled the tub assembly out of the unit and replace the snubber ring. Was really not hard to do and it worked like a charm. No more problems :)

First thing was to go to PartSelect website to see what others with the same problem did to solve their problem. It was 45% pump and a lot less for the belt. My belt is only a year old so that was out. I ordered my new pump and watched the video on PartSelect a couple of times. I didn't bother to disconnect the water and drain lines. I had my wife hold a plastic 2 quart container under the pump when I pulled the small hose off and didn't spill a drop. Like the man on the video said...the new pump isn't identical but it fits and works fine. Thankx PartSelect!
