I removed the belt and pully form under the washer. Lefted the top cover, removed the hardware above the tub, took the front cover panel off to gain access to the tub. Used pliers to remove the springs. Lifted the tub up high enough to install the snubber ring. After putting tht washer back together and doing the first the load the washer stopped banging.

Grinding noise in the wash and spin cycle.

Remove the access panel on the lower back of the washer, the pump is on the rear left side and is help in place by 3 screws. Remove both hoses with pliers and the screws and the pump is out. Install the new pump and connect the hoses and lean the washer back to connect the belt on the bottom.

EXAMINED THE WASHER AND DETERMINED THE HOSES WERE FINE. REMOVED THE ACCESS PANEL FROM THE BACK OF THE WASHER, PULLED OUT THE DRAIN PUMP. LOOKING INSIDE THE PUMP WHILE TURNING THE PULLEY I WAS ABLE TO DETERMINE NOTHING INSIDE THE PUMP WAS MOVING. ONCE THE PUMP WAS PULLED APART (4 SCREWS) IT WAS OBVIOUS THE WHEEL INSIDE THE PUMP BROKE OFF. WE ORDERED THE NEW PART ON SUNDAY (FROM PARTSELECT) AND IT WAS SITTING ON MY DOOR STEP WEDNESDAY. THAT'S FAST. 30 MINUTES LATER EVERYTHING WAS HOOKED BACK UP AND WE WERE BACK IN BUSINESS. ONE LAST POINT: WHEN PUTTING THE DRIVE BELT BACK ON, PUT THE BELT ON THE 2 SMALL PULLEYS FIRST, THEN PUT IT ON THE LARGE PULLEY LAST. THANKS TO PARTSELCT !

Lots of water on laundry room floor. A couple of months earlier, there was a noise like when you put a playing card on your bike spokes...

Washer was noisier than usual, after a while could smell something getting hot, and then the machine stopped working. After a while it would start again but not for long.

I had some expert advise on what the problem was so that made it easier to consentrate on the fix. I was surprised to find so much information on this web page. Getting the right part ordered was also very easy. The repair instructions given by other people was all correct, tiling the machine to get the belt off, removing the back access panel, was all correct and made it easy. The hard part was getting the machine out of the small wash room and into the garage where I had room to work on it. A good dolly and a wooden ramp came in handy . A word of advice woud be to operate the hot & cold water faucets on & off every year or so to be sure they work easily when the time comes, maybe an emergency. After 12 years I was worried my valves would give me a problem. (.they didnt).
