With the right tools this job, should not be that complicated, to me the hardest part was finding the right tools, 1/4 inch small rachet ( the smallest the better,) with a 2 inch extension and a Torx head socket, also known as a 6 lobe,(T25 thats the # that is on the socket) also you need a flat head screw driver,or a 1/4 socket to take the cover off.. and of course the right belt, you might also need a flash light, watch out for spiders, specially black widows, i found a few, First you take the cover off, it should be the easiest part, then, put the rachet,( the smallest the better) with the 2 inch extension and the socket, to take out the water pump, it should be white, it should be only three screws, take your time, when taking out the screws hold them so they don't fall, in to the whasher, it happened to me and it took me a long time to find one of the screws, once you take the 3 screws move the water pump aside it should just drop down from the shaft that drives it, it is not necessary to take the hoses off the pump, put the new belt in place, make sure place it trough the tensioner, there is a guide in the AMANA web site when if you are not so sure, on how the belt goes, once you place the belt, put the water pump back, put the three screws back, put the cover back, run the machine trough a new cycle, Reason why is because i try to run it trough the spin cycle only after i put it together and the belt wouldn't spin, only the motor,Don't forget to unplug the power from the wall before staring all this, I hope this was of some help to you,

I read everyone else's stories and tried this for myself. I am by no means a handy person. This was extremely easy and took me about 10 minutes. I would suggest to everyone to try this for themselves if they have the same problem as I did. Anyone can do this.

The new hose was exactly like the one I removed. It was simply a matter of putting the new hose through the back, replacing the hose clamp, take the piece off the old hose that makes the bend in the hose to go in the wall drain. Replace the lower front panel with two screws and I was done.

After pulling front lower panel off, disconnected idler pulley spring and left side tub stabilizer spring to allow room to get motor out the front. Took belt off transmision pulley, unbolted 4 motor mount bolts, dropped the motor/pump assembly down and disconnected the electrical plug (motor). Took motor/pump assembly out, flipped it over, unbolted 3 pump bolts to remove old pump, which came right off. Then reversed the whole process. Pretty straightforward, just time.

Washer leaking water during drain cycle

Laid washer back on a appliance dolly, removed the front cover, checked to see if the hose was touching the motor mount (it was). Removed the drain hose from the pump and standoffs, removed the hose and disk from the back of the washer that holds the hose. Replaced the hose on the pump, turn the standoff to move the hose farther from the motor mount, and install it in the disk. May be easier to measure the hose and do the disk first as it is not easy to get the hose bent when it is installed first on the pump.

The pump housing had a large crack in it

The hardest part was removing the tub from washer by myself. I simply removed the bolts holding the sides to the bottom of the unit and lifted it straight off. Be careful when you remove the springs from the drum so they don't spring back and puncture the drain line. Thank you RTV gasket maker. Once the drum was free from the base, i tilted the drum back exposing the pump housing. I used a pair of pliers to remove both drain lines then removed the 3 hex screws freeing the pump. I had no problem removing it from the motor shaft, it slipped right off. I put everything back together as easily as it came apart.

Water leaking from under washer front corner.

I read instructions on how to change the pump. I unplugged the washer and then I took off the front panel.I removed the hose clamps and removed the two hoses from the pump.Then I removed the two front springs that hold the drum in place. Be careful because these springs are under tension. I removed the 4 bolts that held the motor to the tub. I unplugged the wires leading to the motor. I removed the motor. I turned the motor upside down and removed the pump and belt. I ordered a belt along with the pump because it was worn. It is best to note how the belt is installed. I took a picture before removing the pump from the motor for future reference if needed. Installation of the new pump and belt was not difficult. I worked the belt around the drum pulley and made sure it turned freely. After completing installation I ran the washer through a short cycle to check for leaks before installing the front cover.

Repair went well using posted instructions. My advice is always replace pump as you will damage seal when pulling pump off shaft.
