Had to replace the whole pump as they did not sell just the propeller. Had to use just the motor and propeller and had to use all the housing from the original pump to bolt in correctly, which fortunately it worked.

An earlier post saved us an awful lot of time and effort by mentioning the importance of holding on to the original pins for the hinges because they are not included in the lid replacement provided by the manufacturer.

Great site. Thank you.

I took off the rear panel and removed the hose clamps and electrical terminals, slid pump out of slot in bottom pan of washing machine. It only took minutes, this was part of a major overhaul. I replaced this as a precautionary measure. Great prices and quick service,

I removed the pump and found several coins had damaged the prop blade. I ordered a new one and installed it easily. The intake on the new pump was slightly smaller than the original so the original quick clamp produced a leak. A simple manual hose clamp corrected that problem.

Machine would spin, but not fill

Replaced the water valve, but that was not the problem. Problem was a burned out control circuit board caused when the machine's door lock (wax motor) failed. Failure of this $20 part destroyed the circuit board ($200). Beware! Check these other items before replacing the valve.

Bearings making noise.

If you are using the newer style seal be sure the taper part of the seal is toward the front of the machine. Installing it backward will ruin the seal and burn up the motor and or controller. The seal installation tool will fit on the side oppsite the taper. It will require a helper to hold the drum support while torquing the nut on the pulley. Better instruction would help too.

I followed the steps on the first post which are very good. I had trouble, however, putting the seal over the drum. I finally removed the plastic rim to the drum by removing the clips. I was then able to lay the rim on the floor and put the new seal over it more easily. It is a lot like putting a bicycle tire on a rim. I had no helpers so I used a vice grip pliers on one end of the cable-spring and another pliers on the other. I was then able to pull both ends together enough to get them to hook up. I recommend removing the plastic rim as I mention above. Had I done this first, I would have done the job in less than 30 minutes.

First off, unplug the machine.
Next remove the existing screws in the plastic dispenser. Then remove the door, there are two screws holding the door on connecting two brackets which need to be lifted to get them to release.
That gives you the access to the remove the front panel, which is done by pulling on the panel itself.
Once that is done you need to remove the two screws that are in the corners upper left, and right that are holding the brackets that hold down the top of the machine. Remove the brackets by gently turning them.
Once done the lid should easily lift up.
The dispenser can then be disconnected by removing the 2 rubber hoses on top and the the larger rubber hose on the bottom along with the electrical connections under the unit. Keep track of which wire goes to which lead.
After removing the dispenser just do everything in reverse.
The machine is like new, and the repair took about 45min and saved me at least $200 dollars.
