Washer completely stopped and would not run.

My timer was not working properly, it had to be turned to start each cycle and it would not move to the rinse cycle after the wash cycle - but it did run. I did not want to put out $70 or $80 bucks if I could make it work - but then it completely stopped. (The washer got off balance due to the load and would not run, after bouncing around on the floor.) The washer was getting power, since the pump would work and it would fill with water - but would not start the wash cycle. I ordered a new timer and put it in, which was pretty easy. First you unplug the unit, you don't want to get a shock. There are three screws on the back of the control panel that are removed with a phillips head screwdriver. The panel is then leaned/titled forward and the four plastic fins pull out of the slots, make sure you tilt it forward as you remove it and do not break off the fins/pins. Unplug the old timer and remove one nut holding it down. In order to remove the timer you have to remove the knob on the front. To do this you have to pull the small cosmetic cover off of the front of the knob - which you can pop off with a small screwdirver - it is in the very center of the knob. Once the small cover is off there is a small clip, pull it out and the knob will come off easily. Pull the timer out of the back of the control panel and put the new timer back in, plug in the timer and put the nut back on to hold it. Replace the knob, clip and cover on the front. Push the fins/pins back into the holes, replace the screws and you should be ready to go once you plug it back in. In my case it still would not run and my problem ended up being the lid switch. I figured this out by holding the button down with a pair of pliers and the washer started. I knew then that the switch needed to be adjusted. When the machine got off balance, the bouncing caused the lid switch to get out of place. I had to remove the control panel again and the lid, which is held on by two clips, that are easy to remove (only need to remove one), carefully put a small screw dirver under the clip and lift it up, then pop it off. You can then adjust the button, which has two parts, the switch and the push rod. This was the hardest part of the repair. The switch is not really put in well, looks like it should pop in to the slot, but would not allow the swith and push rod to work together. It sits on top of the opening. It took several tries to finally get it back right and adjusted with the push rod in the right place, but once I got it adjusted, replaced the lid, put the control panel back, plugged it in - it ran like a top. The new timer runs until the cycle is complete.

There are two clips that hold the top of the washer down. Releasing these clips allows you to lift the top; it is hinged at the back. Then remove two screws holding the front panel and remove the front panel. The tub to pump hose is easily accessible. It is held in place by a hose clamp at each end. Use pliers to squeeze the clamps and remove the hose. Replace with new hose. I re-used the original clamps.

For safety I Unplugged the machine
Tipped machine back and removed the belt. Rotated the motor by hand and all is well there. Rotated the water pump by hand and a grinding sound appeared. I Let the machine down . Using a hard object , 1/16th of an inch thick, I slide it between the front edge of the lid and the front panel unlocking the clips ( one on the right side and one on the left side ) holding the lid down. I then tipped the lid up and removed the 2 screws holding the front panel on. Lifted the front panel off of the clips on the bottom end of panel. Using a nut driver I removed the 3 bolts holding the pump to the frame. Then with a pliers I removed the clips holding the 2 hoses. With a pan to catch the water I removed the hoses and drained them into the pan.
I then took my machine model number and went to the internet in search of a new water pump. After checking several sites with no success, I come upon the site for PartSelect.Com. With the excellent search method on the site I was able to quickly find the part I needed. I placed my order (10pm) on a Tuesday night and a short time later I received an email letting me know they had my order. On Wednesday I received an email letting me know they had shipped my order. On Friday the order had arrived.
I removed the new pump from the box and inspected it . Every thing looks great. I placed the pump into its mount on machine and bolted it down. Attached the 2 hoses, put the front panel back on and tipped the top down into place. Pushed machine into place, plugged it in and fired it up. I now have a quiet running machine again. Thank You to PartSelect.com for the quick response to my

One of the two bolts that holds the motor in place broke off and since the bolts are actually embedded in the motor I had to buy the whole motor rather then just a 25 cent bolt.

Vey Easy to Fix. 1)Turn Water off at the wall. 2)Remove access panel on back of washer. 3) Remove Water pump. It is bolted down to the bottom of the washer by three nut head bolts. when loose the pump can be manipulated and tilted so the belt will have slack and most likely fall right off. Have a bucket ready. Remove water hose from top of pump by sgueaing clam with pliars and sliding clamp up hose. allow to drain in bucket. Lift drain hose out from wall and allow to drain through the pump into bucket. remove hose from pump that goet to drain. Replace pump and reverse steps listed above.

first we looked at schematics on your web site to see what we thought was wrong and if we felt we could do ourselves. It appeared to be seals and gaskets, so we went for it and carefully took the washer apart. We ordered the parts, cleaned the parts we had such as the tub, and were all ready to put back together when the parts arrived. Again, using your pictures, we reasselbled and when we tested, it worked better than it had been in a long time. And we saved a large repair bill!

After pulling the machine away from the wall and turning off the water and unpluging. I simply removed the panel in the back and reached underneath and removed the belt. Took off the hose clamps and removed the three screws holding the pump on. Put the new pump back in place and hooked up the hoses. Then put the belt on for a test run.......all OK put the back on and was done. Whole job about twenty minutes. Saved over two hundred dollars doing this myself. Very simple repair.

The replacement was very easy, just one bolt and RR was a snap. However, the first part that came was defective and I called the 800 number, spoke to the rep and the part came the next day. Excellent customer service, and would do business again
