Coins sheared the impeller blades from the pump. I disconnected the power, removed the back panel, with pliers slide the hose clamp off the hose and remove hose...you will drain water from both hoses when removed (if washer is full of water be prepared for it all to drain)remove 2nd hose clamp and hose, with a 1/2 socket remove the 3 mounting bolts, and disconnect the power line from the pump remove old pump from mounting plate. Install new pump in reverse order.

The washer would spark everytime I would start the cycle.

I went to Maytag.com and typed in my model number and it came up with different parts I found the glass part I needed and ordered it. I received it in like 3 days. I had a phyllips screw driver and it the removal of the base around the glass replace the glass and screwed it right back on and started washing clothes. No leaks at all. I am a woman and proved woman can do the same things a man can do but quicker.LOL

Drain Pump- Spinning Wheel Inside Had Plastic Blades Wore Off From Loose Change And Other Objects Being Sucked Into It. So It Would Not Drain Effectively Anymore. Left Our Clother Soaking Wet Which Made The Dryer Seem Like It Wasn't Working.

Of course, before starting any work always make sure your power cord is unplugged to begin with. Move the washing machine to an area with enough room to maneuver around as needed. Now, move around to the back of the washing machine and remove the two Phillip headed screws from the back panel. Push slightly up to pull the two bottom flanges out of their slots. Then pull out on the bottom of the panel which will remove it to allow you access to the inside of the washing machine guts. The drain pump is located directly inside and to the left being held down by three bolts with two hoses running from each side of it. Since there may be a bit of water stored inside the drain pump and hoses have a shop-vac ready to suck up any water that will otherwise go all over the place. If your washer has been down for a while that means sour disgusting mildewed water. Now, unplug the power cord on the top left of the pump and wedge it out of the way making sure it doesn't get wet. Use either a wrench or pliers to remove the three bolts that are holding down the base of the Drain Pump. Remove all of the screws that are holding the Drain Pump to the base. Flip it over to remove the last screw from the bottom. Twist the Drain Pump slightly to move the notches to be able to remove the Drain Pump from the base. Reverse this process to place the new Drain Pump on the base and into the washing machine. If you purchased a Drain Pump with a whole new base already on it then you just have to remove the three bolts and place the new drain and base in. This job is a very easy fix and would have cost you around $300 to $400 dollars having a repair man order the part and come out and do the work. I know because I asked a repair man how much he would charge me for this job. So save your money and fix the easy jobs yourself. Just don't tell my wife it was easy. HaHa!

Took the two screws out of the access panel on the back of the washer. Drain pump was just inside the access panel. Unplug electrical plug from pump. Take the clamps off the hoses and disconnect hoses. ( Lay towels inside around pump to catch excess water) Take a ratchet, extension, & socket and unscrew bolts from washer base. Unscrew pump from bracket. Put old bracket on the new pump and assemble everything back together opposite of instructions. Very easy fix. Thanks parts select. U saved my family time and a lot of money on repairs.

Very easy repair, once I read the reviews and watched a couple of you tube videos. I just released the band holding the gasket in place, pulled it back, unscrewed the latch and installed a new one. Less than a 10 min job. I am glad I found this web site, thanks guys!!

Washer shaking on spin and spin speed low.

I simply followed manufacturers direction from the service manual that I had purchased. I removed the cover from the back of the washer, removed the old belt and put the new belt on. The old belt was certainly stretched and putting the new belt on simply required that I walk the new belt on to the pulley and then adjust the belt to the center of the pully. The end result was a washer that now spins as it did when new.

Broken latch on front of washer

  • Customer: Brenda from Citrus Heights CA

Took both the screws out on the top back. Lifted up the back about 1/2 inch and slid to the back. Reached into the front of the washer where the latch was connected. Disconnected the 3 wires (plugs) attached to the latch, took out the 3 screws located inside the washer door. Took a second person just to hold the latch and bring it out after the screws were off the front inside the washer door. Put new latch in, connected the wires, put in the screws behind the washer door (3 of them) and slid the top into place and put the screws in the back. Takes longer to tell you than to do it. Remember the screw on the left side front (top) as you face the washer and remove that screw. The plastic had disintegrated on mine but am not going to replace that part until I have to.

I followed the guy on the video. The only parts that were tough was having the right tools and having enough space to put the new part in. The part was only 70 dollars and I was so proud that I could do it. I am not very handy so if I can do it then anyone can. Plus I saved some money!

My husband read on the Internet how common this problem is and how easy we could do it ourselves rather than pay the service etc.... While reading there was a link for Part Select. We simply found the part with-in minutes and ordered. They have PayPal so I basically ordered it in less than 1 minute, emailed my receipt and DONE! We selected overnight shipping because the laundry was piling up - we received the part less than 24 hours and I was up and running before dark! PERFECT!
