It takes 2 people to do this repair.The bellow is the hardest part. One person has to hold the bellow in one spot, and the other person has to put it on the rim of the drum all the way around. Sort of like putting a tire on a bicycle. Dont do what I did and pry the door open. If you do that you will have to get a new door lock control at $54.Take off the lower front panel and reach up to the manual releace tab on the right side and pull down. Please make sure that the power is turned off, unplug the washer from the wall for your safety. The door switch itself is easy to replace, 3 screws, 3 plugs. Hope this helps.

We had to bread the hinge that had rusted out. That was the worst part. Putting the new hinge was no big deal. The time factor was also great. I called on Monday and had the part by Thursay. With a family of 6 a washer is a huge necessity.

Old bellow pulled loose and torn

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

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.

The repair was rather easy. It involved the removal of all the bolts around the glass door and only the bolts on the hinge conected to the washer itself. there was a bit of alignment problem when put back together, minor rubbing, but not much. The door now works close to as good as new.

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.

First you need to remove the water from the machine, a shop vac hooked to the drain line works very well. Next remove the lower front panel ( two screws at bottom corners) and unplug pump. Remove the hose clamps and remove the hoses. Remove the screw at the front of the pump assembly and pull toward you and lift up. Instal new pump in reverse order.

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.
