First I unplugged the washer and removed the back cover plate of the washer. I drained the pump and drainage lines. I then removed the two hose clamps and removed the connecting hoses. I removed the electrical connection. I loosened the three mounting bolts holding the mounting plate holding the pump. Once out, I could remove the pump from the plate and replaced it with the new part. I remounted the mounting plate, attached the hoses and clamps. I reattached the electrical connection and the back plate to the washer.


The Maytag is well designed and the parts are easy to reach. At least from this experience, the machine was designed with efficient repairs in mind. This is a sign of a well made machine.

Door lock was in the locked position and door could not close

I bought a new door lock for 132 dollars (item number PS2037196).

Ultimately you have to get to the inside of the machine where the door lock is located in order to see if you will need this door lock that I bought.

DISCONNECT POWER FROM MACHINE.

First take off the top by taking off the 2 screws on the back of the machine.

Second take off the control panel, I believe there are about 5 or 6 screws for that.
(there's also a screw when you open up the detergent compartment on the bottom left- also, a lever must be pushed in order for the compartment to come off- it MUST be taken off).

Third unscrew the top of the front white plate.. there should be a 5 or 6 screws for that.
You don't need to take off the entire front plate.

Finally unscrew 3 screws that hold the door lock in place .. make sure your hands is in the machine- the back of door lock to catch the lock when you're on the last screw.

Gently take out the door lock from the side with the cables attached by holding the white metal door open (it bends).

Try to pull on the bottom of the door lock (its a manual release). If it doesn't release you need to buy a new door lock like I did... if it does release then you don't need a door lock and just reassemble.
(Note: You can also try plugging in the machine and THEN pulling down on the manual release. When I tried this the door lock just vibrated and nothing happened so I bought a new door lock.)

If you have the new door lock continue here:

Take out all 3 cables on the old door lock by pressing on the corresponding clips.

Attach the new door lock with the correct cables. Assemble machine back together.

Thats it.

Had to take the entire front of the washer off to replace the door latch.

Water will not drain properly. This not only left the clothes very wet it also made the cycle take longer.

First thing I did was to unplug the washer's power cord from wall outlet. Secondly I disconnected the hot and cold water hoses. You need to have a pan or bucket handy to catch any water once hoses are disconnected. Thirdly I removed the screws that secures the rear panel and removed panel to expose the pump at the bottom of the washer. I then disconnected the power cable going to the pump and removed the inlet and outlet hoses connected to the pump. You may need a set of pliers to remove the hose clamps if you don't have strong fingers. Note! you will need some rags or towels to soak up the water when you remove the drain hose that goes from the washer's tub to the pump inlet once the hose is disconnect. Once this is completed, I finally removed the 3 screws that secured the pump to the washer's frame and removed the faulty pump. Once pump is removed reinstall new pump in reverse. If you are handy with a screw driver and pliers this is an easy fix. Once pump was replaced the washer ran and drained fine. To avoid future damages to your pump always check clothes pockets for foreign objects prior to washing. The damage to my pump was caused by a quarter that got in the drain hose and damaged the pump's impeller. Be real careful not to cut yourself, because there are a few sharp edges on the washer's panel and frame when removing the pump. I hope my experience helps someone who may encounter the same problem.

The repair was very simple I also broke the door latch when this happen as well to get the water out of the drum. Both components were very simple to replace and took less than a hour. My order was deliver very promply even a day earlier than I expected. Everything was correct and the price was well below any price I could find in town or on any other web site. I hope I never need anything else for this equipment but if I do this will be my first choice for the parts purchase. Thanks, Jason Frost,Texas

Washer Stopped Draining

I first took off the back of the washer to check if water was getting to the pump and out of it. It was. I followed the troubleshooting instructions in the Technical Manual that came with the Washer. I measured voltage with a voltmeter at the pins on the circuit board that the manual said to. It seemed that no power was going to the pump from the circuit board. I did not trust my findings. I called an Applicance repair company, and they repeated what I had done and concluded the board was no good. Their price for the board was the same as Partselect but they wanted another hours labor to install it, which was $90. I ordered the board myself, and incredibly it arrived in one day and was packaged beautifully. I unplugged the old, there are seven easily indentified plugs, plugged in the new, and the drain cycle worked again. In the end I saved myself $90 dollars but could of saved more if I had trusted my original troubleshooting conclusion. PastSelect was awesome. I still cant figure out how the part got to me so quickly.

Water not draining

  • Customer: Jose from Hillsborough NJ
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours

A nickel made its way into the pump and broke all the impeller blades. Since impeller can't be replaced, I had to buy a whole new pump. Although the pump I ordered looked very similar to the original pump, the base did not match and could not be installed. I had to remove the pump cover which contains the mounting base from the old pump and install it on the new pump. That was quicker than returning the pump for replacement. The washer now drains properly and there are no leaks.

This product comes in a bottle with a brush like Liquid Paper. It goes on incredibly easy. A second coat might be needed. I wanted to prevent rust from setting in so I covered the scratches and dings. The paint is a little brighter since my washer is 10 years old but it still looks great.

removed the pump, found a quarter lodged in it, noticed fins were completely wore down. Got the model number, went to PartSelect.com and ordered a new pump. The price was much lower than anywhere here in Washington plus the pump arrived in 2 business days (exactly what I paid for). I highly recommend Part Select ---I know I will be using them anytime I need an appliance part!

Unplug the washer and remove the back cover plate of the washer. Have old towels and a small receptacle to catch water from the lines. Drain the pump and drainage lines. Remove the two hose clamps and remove the connecting hoses. Disconnect the electrical connection from the pump (small plug connection). Undo the three mounting bolts holding the mounting plate for the pump. Remove the pump from the plate and install the new part. Remount the mounting plate, attach the hoses and clamps. Reattach the electrical connection and the back plate to the washer. Plug that baby in and works like a champ!
