Video \was great but...

Partselect's video on how to replace the waterpump was great, but I was a bit stymied at the beginning as the control panel on my Whirlpool was attached differently than shown in the video. Mine was held on with two Phillips head screws in the back corners of the control panel. Also I'd suggest replacing the tub to pump hose (Part PS334685) at the same time-I wish I did. That hose was coated with crud which I cleaned out the best I could. All in all a pretty easy job-hardest part was getting cabinet back on (put the front bottom under the frame, then lower the cabinet onto the frame.

drip from the front of the washer

First I tipped the washer forward and placed a plastic milk crate under the rear of the washer to support it . Then tipping the washer back. I placed two car jack stands near the front to support and level the machine. Now I had enough room to look under it to see where it was leaking. Right away I could see a drip coming from the pump in the front of the washer. I removed the two water hoses. Then with a screwdriver popped a clip on the top of the pump and one on the bottom. The pump slid easily off . Slide the new pump on and reverse the process

Water was not being drained from my washer

After figuring out the shell was not gonna come apart easily, as some videos show for Whirpool, Kenmore.., to gain access to the water pump, I decided to try a trick I'd heard of before and try to get to it from the bottom. Since most washing machines have their water pumps in the front, I pulled it out enough to be able to lean it back against the wall and look underneath. Be very sure you have unplugged the machine from the outlet! Also be sure to support it from falling forward. The hoses and pump were easily accessible from this position.Using the pliers to remove the hose clamps, I could wiggle the hoses off easily. Be prepared for some water to run out, because there will be some in there. After removing the hoses, the clips holding the water pump on were easily removed with my fingers, you might need a screwdriver to loosen the clips. With the clips pulled back, or removed if you turn them 90 degrees the pump should pull off the shaft of the motor easily. A gentle tapping will usually loosen any stuck pump.Once the old pump is removed, line up the shaft of the motor and pump's sleeve with flat sides matching and it should slide on easily. Do not force it, it should slide on easily if lined up properly. Replace the clips holding the pump to the motor. Reconnect the hoses, slide the clamps back into place with the pliers, and you should be ready to Rock-n-Roll. Lower the machine, and slide it back into place. Hope this helps all of those that choose to repair their own Crosley washing machine with a new water pump.

Replace leaking water pump

  • Customer: Dewey from DeRuyter NY
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

The repair video was very helpful and exactly right. The most difficult task was removing the old pump. It had apparently seeping between the motor shaft and the pump coupler for some time and had rusted the pump to the motor shaft. I had to aggressively grip the pump housing with the channel lock pliers and wrench it back and forth to break it loose. I took a file to remove the rust build up from the motor shaft before installing the new pump. Washer works fine.

Water wouldn't drain after wash cycle.

Using the part select website, I discovered that 64% of the time, replacing the water pump will fix the drain problem so I ordered that part. I laid the washer on it's back. And was able to unclip the water hoses, detach the pump and install the new one. The parts select website has great instructional videos to help but in this case, the video recommended removing the outer skin from the washer which I found unnecessary.

Leakt water pump

Forget the instruction book, it's too time consuming and it's a knuckle buster. Disconnect all hoses and lay machine on it's back. (Have plenty of rags to soak up the half gallon of water still in the pump). Use pliers to slide back hose clamps on pump and slide off hoses. Use screw drive to snap off clamps holding pump in place. Remove pump. Simply reverse process to install new pump. It nearly was one of my wife's 5 minute jobs she always has on her "Honey Doo" list.

clothes not cleaning and not agitating

I noticed that the clothes were not cleaning as well as usual but I did not put two and two together ie problem with agitator. Because of this problem, I starting using more detergent and taking more time in prewash preparation. I forgot one day to put detergent and baking soda on a grease spot, so I opened the loaded and running washer to see if I could spot the item, and what do you know...The clothes were not agitating, or were doing so barely. The bottom was working but the top was barely functional, okay, not fuctional. So I went to the web and typed in agitator not working and this nifty page with the vid came into my perview. Shopping for parts easy and whatever menu you need to follow you've got. I did the selecting based on location, color and the size I could see and then went back and found the model number to confirm that I had the right parts. I bought extra parts by mistake, the agitator repair kit includes a thrust spacer and agitator cam bearing, so just be aware. The video on how to accomplish the repair was clear, no hidden angles, nothing skipped, so I did not have to keep reviewing it. I used a thin metal rod to wedge into the top of the fabric softener dispenser and pop it off the top of the agitator, other wise I was not getting it off. Followed the details included in the parts packages for each section and my memory of the video I managed quite easily to replace the parts. I hate trying to figure out how to get to the point of repair in some pictures or even videos. Trying to reverse the take apart can be equally frustrating, but the video was great. I had no problems, and no redos. The agitator was no longer loosey goosey. First load I put in was large. I did watch when the load started agitating, and what did you know, it was actually agitating! Great place to buy parts.

I watched the video and everything went just as the video said. Took 25 minutes including the time it took to clean the agitator parts. I did not use the agitator grease recommended, but instead used Red N Tacky #2 multi-purpose grease. It has a 540 degree F drop point, Good for sliding surfaces, Stays in U-joints and resists wash out. I love this grease and you can use it on so many things.

Part was for my machine and others (Whirlpool etc). Picture looked identical, but was too short for my machine. I was able to used pieces of the new part to repair the old one and this worked, but could have saved a few bucks if I had ordered the parts I needed to repair the old one.

The agitator had stopped working

We got the parts, watched your video a couple of times and then began the repair. It went well with one exception. None of my socket extensions were long enough to work well. The required length might be added to the video and the printed installation instructions. Also it would have nice to have been able to order a small tube of the recommended lubricant. Overall I was very pleased. Jack
