Easiest $300 I've ever saved!!!

  • Difficulty: Really easy

Part was $150 and the going rate to replace the pump by a repair person is $300=$450. This was super easy and took about 15 minutes, including draining the old pump with my wet vac!! I messed around witht he old one trying to clean it, etc for several weeks because I'm cheap and didn't want to spend the $150. SPEND THE MONEY AND DO IT YOURSELF.

(1) Turn off water valves (2) remove water lines (3) remove three metric star screws from top/back of washer (4) remove to plate (5) remove single screw retaining water inlet valve at back of washer (6) remove electrical connections from water inlet valve and flow meter (7) loosen hose clamps at back of soap dispenser (8) remove assembly/apply new parts (9) reverse above directions. Because the plastic nipple at the back of the soap dispenser was brittle, it partially broke on me. I applied urethane glue to the break and let it dry overnight. Next day I applied marine-grade silicone sealant around the break area. That evening I assembled and then used the washer to test for leaks. Success!

F/H error

I had replaced the flowmeter, but that didn't solve the problem, so I ordered the hot/cold solenoid fill part. Other than ONE screw that was unique -- the back retaining screws were nut driver screws, the one retaining screw was a torx which, of course, couldn't be seen unless you pulled the washer all the way out. Unscrewed that, unhooked the hose clamp with pliers and worried the hose off, removed the four electrical connections (which were TIGHT) and replaced the part. Turned on the water and was dismayed to get a d/l error code. After some colorful language learned from my drill sergeant 40 years ago, I realized that was "door lock" and closed the door tightly. Ran great and the Mrs. thinks I'm a hero.

I replaced the flow meter but that want it, so replaced the water inlet valve and that cured what ailed it. The only pain was that the single screw that holds the part to the washer is a torx rather than a nut like the rest of the back screws. Couldn't see it without pulling the washer all the way out. Hose clamp came off with pliers and the electrical connectors were TIGHT but came off with some effort. Replaced everything and error cleared ok.

need a star srew driver to install

  • Customer: amilee from housotn TX
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

The installation requires a star shaped screw driver to remove the existing the screw holding the door handle. The same screws must be saved and used to install the new handle, which does not come with new screws. So, you do not want to strip the screws removing. Plan ahead with the correct screw driver- you can determine what is needed by looking at the screw head and purchasing an appropriate tool. My handy neighbor installed my new handle, but the screws can no longer be removed should I have to replace the handle a second time. The entire time to remove and install took less than five minutes.

I used a phillips head screw driver, however the heads of the screws were not phillips head, they were some other kind of head I have never seen.
