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.

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.

I found the impeller, in the water pump, had worn thru the front pump housing. Allowing water to leak on to floor. Replaced pump from under washer. Removed two hose's and two retaining brackets.

Leaking water pump

Let me start by saying that I only had to wait one day for the new water pump. Awesome! Once I figured out how to accessed the waterpump, the real challenge began. The washer had been leaking for some time and removing the old pump turned out to be more difficult than expected. The bottom clip used to secure the pump was completely rusted. It took some effort to remove the old pump but it finally came off. Once it was removed, I discovered why it was so difficult. The drive shaft from the motor was so rusted that a groove had been worn into it. I ended up using a metal file to smooth off the rust in order to install the new pump. With a bit of coaxing, I was able to install the new pump, re-attach the hoses and re-assemble the machine. It works like a charm now. No more leaking! Yeah!

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.

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.

Water leak coming out front of washer

When water started pouring out of our washer, I removed the pump. A pair of pliars removes the two hose clamps, and there are two clips that you remove with your hands to get the pump off. The pump looked fine, so I took it to the sink, and put some water in it. I then plugged one hose "port" with my hand and blew hard into the other. Water squirted out. There was a fine crack in th eplastic of the pump. I mixed up some 2 part epoxy and put it over the crack. This fixed the problem for a little over a month. Then the pump got more leaks, so I ordered a pump from here, that arrived in 2 days. I quickly replaced it, and it works great.

I lifted the machine up with one hand while lying on the floor and installed the new pump after aligning the motor shaft to the pump. I then snapped the pump onto the motor shaft and added the top and bottom "keeper snaps". That was it.

Leaking Water Pump

When water began leaking from the bottom of our washer, I immediately thought it might be a leaking tub. But I did a little research on the internet and found out how easy it is to get into the machine so I could investigate the problem. When I found the source of the leak, it still seamed a little difficult to repair until I found this website. Not only did I find the part I needed at a fair price, but the video explaining the repair procedure was easy to follow. The repair itself turned out to be quite simple and easy. And the best part is that I saved time and a huge repair bill. I couldn't find a repairman quickly and I suspected they wouldn't even have the part in stock. Thanks, Parts Select!
