Sure enough, it was the Drain Pump. Replacing the drain pump itself was a piece of cake, even though mine was located at the BACK of the unit, bot the front like the instructional video. The tough (or at least time consuming) process was emptying the washer of all the standing water before the problem could be properly diagnosed and the repair completed. Needless to say, a ShopVac was the solution for the main tub, although there is still a bunch of water left under the main tub, in the hoses and even in the broken Drain Pump. Have lots of towels and a small bucket on hand - and someone to help empty the bucket while you're crouched behind the washer by the wall! :) Other than that, replacing the actual part is easy, and replacing the belt is easier once the new working (rotating) drain pump is in place.

Easy to replace. Just wish they would have suggested to order the screw as well at the same time.

placed washer on front exposing bottom of machine. removed clip holding pulley in place with needle nose pliers. The old parts slid off transmission shaft easily. I set these aside in order of removal. The replacement parts were not exact matches to OEM parts replacement bearing was heavier duty and thicker there were washers in the kit that would not even slid onto transmission shaft,replacement pulley and cam were exact replacements for OEM. I replaced the bearing and thrust washer and then used a combination of new and old washers to build the assembly back to the original length so the retaining clip would hold assembly firmly in place.The instructions key point was that the final height had to bring the pulley back to the original height for a snug fit with retaining clip. Once I realized this the extra parts in the kit were less worrisome.

I replaced both the belt (PS2018741) and water pump (PS2347193)on my Maytag Washer MAVT446AWW. I replaced the belt and water pump at the same time because my machine was making a pretty loud knocking noise (like a belt was flapping loose -- but the old belt was not broken. I used the instructions in the PartSelect.com video and installation was pretty easy. Both the new belt and water pump work fine. BUT the knocking noise in the wash cycle is still there. Does anyone have a suggestion on what I can check next with regard to this problem? Thanks

water pump stoped working

Easy fix. I pulled the washer out from the wall and leaned the top back to the wall. I then removed the belt from the bottom. I set the washer back on all fours and slide it around so I could get to the back water pump access panel. Using a nut driver, I removed the screws from the panel, then I removed the panel. I could now see the water pump. With a pair of pliers I removed the two hose clamps, and removed the end of the hose's from the pump. Then with a socket wrench I removed the three screws holding the pump down and removed the pump. In reverse order I put it back together. It works fine and saved me a lot of money from happened to buy a new washer. Thanks PartSelect.

The video on PartSelect.com regarding replacing the washer machines drain pump with pulley was extremely helpful. By following the simple instructions as shown in the video, I was successful in replacing my washing machines pump in less than an hour, and saved myself the labor costs a repairman would have charged me for a really simple and easy repair job. I was also extremely happy and impressed with PartSelect.com. The price I paid for the part was very competitive and arrived within 3 days. I was very glad to see the pump and pulley assembly was a Whirlpool factory certified part and not a knock-off or reconditioned part.

I followed write ups on this web site and the job was straight forward. As far as the washer brake rotor I did not need to replace it. After removing the six screws that cover the assembly I noticed some rust and dirt so cleaned it with degreaser and reassembled it. I have no loud screeching sounds when the spin cycle comes to an end. As always PartSelect did a great job getting the correct parts to me with in a few days, thanks.

Removing and replacing the pump was a very easy process. Once the belt was removed on the bottom of the machine, I removed the back plate to gain access to the pump. Three screws and a couple of clamps holding the hoses on the pump. There was a little more water in the pump during removal than anticipated. Other than that, it was an easy fix.

remove the cable under the washer, open the back small opening/access panel, unplug two hoses, remove and replace the pump, put everything back including the cable under the washer. then test and it washes like new and quiet. Installation video is very helpful.

Washer made squealing and grinding noises at the end of a wash cycle

I followed the very useful videos for replacing the water pump and drive belt. My machine has the water pump located in the back (different than the video) so removing the front of the washer was not necessary. However, by doing so, I noticed some interior rust from bleach-tray spills which I easily fixed with a wire brush and some spray paint. The pump was easily removed by loosening 3 bolts (per the video) but through an access plate in the back. The only surprise was that there was considerable water in the pump hoses and I needed a bigger catch tray to collect the water than I expected.
