Drain hose should come with the two clips (45B)that hold the drain hose to the back of the machine. I had to cut the old hose off. Then very carefully remove the clips from the inside of the machine with a pair of pliers.

This is the third time it has been replaced. They last about 2-3 years. Made sure pump was full of water before starting etc so we didn't start with a "dry" pump.

The actual repair and parts ordering went just fine.

This is a newer washer, but I don't know the age. I just bought the house...!

I made this repair more difficult than it needed to be. I took off the back panel of the machine completely, only to discover the coupling for the hose was near the front of the machine. I tilted the unit on its side and took off the bottom before I discovered the access panel on the front, which is held on by only two screws. I put the bottom panel back on, tilted it upright, took off the panel, and had easy access to the coupling. The new part fit perfectly, and a quick wash load proved the leak was fixed.

I took off the front panel of the washer and placed the belt on the large tub wheel and then the smaller wheel. I placed the belt over the adjustable third wheel and turned the tub in order to get the belt all the way in the grooves. Thirty minutes max to replace. Thanks, my order was 100% satisfactory

Lift washer lid by jerking the lid up and open. Remove front panel by removing 2 screws at front bottom and guiding tabs out of slots. Locate tabs on tub cover and gently pry loose with a flat blade screwdriver or putty knife. Remove tub cover and inspect seal area for damage or debris. Replace new tub cover on tub and align and fasten each tab. Ensure that lid is securely fastened to tub by pressing top of cover down and visually inspecting that each tab is engaged with tub hooks. Replace front panel. Use anti-seize grease when replacing the 2 front panel screws. Use a small amount of petroleum jelly on the top lid spring clips before closing washer top. (The last 2 tips will help any future opening of the washer.)
