To replace the coupling, I disconnected the hoses, and drain hose and unplugged the washer and tipped it over onto its side as access to this area on this machine is from the bottom. Next I took out the screws that hold the strap for the motor and tried to separate the motor from the transmition. This was a little difficult because the weight of the tub was against me. So I removed the drain hose and turned the washer on its back which made that easier. I replaced the coupling and reconnected the motor straps and reconnected all hoses. The agitator was easier. There is 1 bolt under the top cover that I removed and the top agitator came right out. The problem was the plastic dogs that make the agitator turn. The new dogs didn't come with any instruction and it took a few moments of studying the dogs to determine how they should go in. Once I figured that out the rest was easy.

Started to replace the water pump but looked online at Youtube and everyone said to look at the lid switch first. I bypassed the switch and sure enough that was it! No need for the pump.

Water pump leaking , machine 3 years old, but not used.

Replaced the water pump. I took this machine outside to the garage on a concrete floor so spilled water was not a problem, but if repaired inside be sure to have some rags for spilled water. Turn off water to machine. REALLY easy to do. Tilt the washer on it's back. No need to remove any side or front panels. Use a pair of channel lock pliers to move the two water line hose clips up onto the water line. Then release the two water pump retaining clips that holds the pump to the motor. Lift the old pump off, set the new back on put the clips back on, push the two hoses on and set the clamps back down. Just be sure to put the clamps close to the end of the hose, if you leave the clamps too far up on the hose, you may have a small water seep from the clamp.

pump leaking

Unscrewed and flipped back control panel. Unplugged lid switch and removed fron/side/lid sheet metal. Disconnected hoses from the pump, removed pump retaining clips and switched to new pump. Reversed procedure, plugged machine back in and everything worked like new. There was no need to lay the machine on it's back as instructed by the video. It would helped pins that hold the sides in place (at bottom rear) where about an inch taller.

used the pliers to remove the hoses, Then used the screw driver to remove the metal retainers.It only took two days to get the parts delivered. even with 5 to 7 day delivery.so don't pay for next day delivery if you don't have to. When I got the part in it only took a couple of minutes. Use the pliers to install the hoses, then you can just use your hands to put the retainers in place.

I goodgled the make and model of the washing machine and parts select said the solution was to replace the water pump. After watching the viedo my husband and I were convinced this would solve our problem. Instillation was very easy. The toughest part of the project was squaring the frame so we could put the back piece back on. Problem solved, no more water on the floor!

The agitaor had stopped moving when laundry was put in the washer. The bottom level of the agittaor worked fine, it was only the top that would stop with the load of clothes.

Extremely simple repair, anyone that can turn a ratchet with an extension and socket can do this repair. I think they even have a video with precise instructions available. I let my 14 year old daughter do the job while I watched over her shoulder and she did it without my help, other than my giving her the tools. If you can describe the problem to their sales dept and give them the name and model number of the equiptment, watch their video and have a few tools you can do this repair

Followed instructions supplied plus use of u-tube video. The job could have been done in less time if I had a long ratchet to begin with. Fairly easy job for a woman to do.
