Pump leaked

  • Customer: Yehuda from San Jose CA
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers, Wrench set

At first I thought the o-ring may have wear out so I took the pump out to check, but the leak was either from the shaft seal or body itself (hard to tell as body had corrosion on it) taken out the pump was very easy, but you need to use the right pliers to easily remove the spring clamps. Follow instruction to set the housing orientation, and than install back the pump. Reinstalling one of he hoses using the spring clamps took few tries, but it was in place in no time. remember not to install the cover before you operate the washer to verify no leaks. This work is realy very very easy.

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.

I had replaced the pump 5 years earlier and now it was leaking again. When I removed the old pump, I discovered a bobby pin had made its way into the pump and was chewing up the housing, causing a small hole. This was a very simple repair as the pump sits right in the bottom front of the machine. The most difficult part was removing the old hoses and re-attaching them to the new pump. Four bolts/screws and two electrical connectors, which cannot be confused, made this an easy fix.

Washer Not Draining

After not being able to get the proper 10 foot hose, and having to splice two drain hoses together....turned out it was not the drain hose after all, but the pump. Some sort of "baffle" in the drain hose, where the rubber connector at the pump end and the corrugated hose joins, was blocking the water I thought. It may have been since a spliced the new hose in at that end. However, I think it was the pump.

Discharge hose was leaking

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.
