Water leak coming out front of washer

  • Customer: Ramo from sylvan grove KS
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers

When water started pouring out of our washer, I removed the pump. A pair of pliars removes the two hose clamps, and there are two clips that you remove with your hands to get the pump off. The pump looked fine, so I took it to the sink, and put some water in it. I then plugged one hose "port" with my hand and blew hard into the other. Water squirted out. There was a fine crack in th eplastic of the pump. I mixed up some 2 part epoxy and put it over the crack. This fixed the problem for a little over a month. Then the pump got more leaks, so I ordered a pump from here, that arrived in 2 days. I quickly replaced it, and it works great.

I lifted the machine up with one hand while lying on the floor and installed the new pump after aligning the motor shaft to the pump. I then snapped the pump onto the motor shaft and added the top and bottom "keeper snaps". That was it.

Leaking water pump

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

Let me start by saying that I only had to wait one day for the new water pump. Awesome! Once I figured out how to accessed the waterpump, the real challenge began. The washer had been leaking for some time and removing the old pump turned out to be more difficult than expected. The bottom clip used to secure the pump was completely rusted. It took some effort to remove the old pump but it finally came off. Once it was removed, I discovered why it was so difficult. The drive shaft from the motor was so rusted that a groove had been worn into it. I ended up using a metal file to smooth off the rust in order to install the new pump. With a bit of coaxing, I was able to install the new pump, re-attach the hoses and re-assemble the machine. It works like a charm now. No more leaking! Yeah!

Using the video I was able to remove the outer frame and found the water pump was leaking. Ordered a new part and using the video was able to replace without a problem. Machine works great, no leaks. My son and son-in-law said just replace the machine...well once I found the problem, was an easy fix. The hardest part was lining up the outer frame so the fitting was right. I'm 65 young and yes women you can do it!!

clothes not cleaning and not agitating

  • Difficulty: Really easy

I noticed that the clothes were not cleaning as well as usual but I did not put two and two together ie problem with agitator. Because of this problem, I starting using more detergent and taking more time in prewash preparation. I forgot one day to put detergent and baking soda on a grease spot, so I opened the loaded and running washer to see if I could spot the item, and what do you know...The clothes were not agitating, or were doing so barely. The bottom was working but the top was barely functional, okay, not fuctional. So I went to the web and typed in agitator not working and this nifty page with the vid came into my perview. Shopping for parts easy and whatever menu you need to follow you've got. I did the selecting based on location, color and the size I could see and then went back and found the model number to confirm that I had the right parts. I bought extra parts by mistake, the agitator repair kit includes a thrust spacer and agitator cam bearing, so just be aware. The video on how to accomplish the repair was clear, no hidden angles, nothing skipped, so I did not have to keep reviewing it. I used a thin metal rod to wedge into the top of the fabric softener dispenser and pop it off the top of the agitator, other wise I was not getting it off. Followed the details included in the parts packages for each section and my memory of the video I managed quite easily to replace the parts. I hate trying to figure out how to get to the point of repair in some pictures or even videos. Trying to reverse the take apart can be equally frustrating, but the video was great. I had no problems, and no redos. The agitator was no longer loosey goosey. First load I put in was large. I did watch when the load started agitating, and what did you know, it was actually agitating! Great place to buy parts.

Top Agitator Not Engaging

Just follow the partselect video connected to the part! I have tracked down some appliance parts locally in the past but I must say that using partselect was so much easier and educational than driving across town and/or making calls. For $10, the 10yr old washer is back and operational as it should be. It's only about a 15 minute job but after reading other comments here, I went ahead and cleaned the scum(yes you have it too) on the inside of both the bottom and top agitator pieces. If I need appliance parts, I will be back to partselect. Ordered Sun at 930p and got part Tue at 10a. Great Job! Great Service! Good to see it still exists out there.
