Water leak under machine caused by cracked drain pump

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

Turn of the electrical power to the machine. I took off the cover on the machine below the door. You had to use phillips screwdriver to get the three screws out. In order to replace the pump I had to lift the washing machine about three inches up slightly over to one side (needed a strong person to lift as there was a dryer on top of it). The old pump has to be removed with a nutdriver as there are two nuts holding the pump in place under the machine ( I had to run out to the hardware store to buy a smaller one to fit under the machine as the big wrench was to big to fit under the machine). I unplugged the electrical connection to the pump. I unclamped the hoses attached to the pump using a plier, make sure you have something to hold water that will drain from the hose. I then push/pull the old pump to the right out of its place, it is attached to the metal at the bottom of the machine. I put in the new pump and tighten the screws on the bottom (this is the tricky part as you cannot see - a mirror may help). I also reattached the hoses and electrical connection. I turned on the machine to rinse to make sure there were no leaks before putting back the cover. Before throwing out the old pump, you can shake it and look in the opening of the old pump for any valuables left in pockets that may have washed out. I found a 18k bracelet, 25 cents and a small screw which may have caused the hole in the pump . Good luck :)

replaced leaking bellows

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours

I followed the description on this site, my machine was slightly different, but the basic procedure was the same. The tip to apply a small amount of the liquid soap to the bellows was useful to ease installation. Make sure the holes in the bottom of the bellows align with the drain in the bottom of the washer. The portion of the bellows that attaches to the main body via the adjustable clamp can be done by a single person with two hands. The portion that attaches to the front panel with the spring-wire band is a four hand job. Position the bellows, attach / position the wire-band with the spring portion on the bottom. Starting at the top get your helper to hold it in position, using needle nose pliers stretch the last bit of the wire-band into final position.

Repair was easy the hardest part was taking the access cover off. Three screws held the cover in place and the Electronic Control Unit was held in place by a plastic clip along with a total of eight (8) electric connectors. Anyone with any knowledge of how to use a screwdriver can complete this repair.

I purchased the machine from a Scratch and Dent Place

The water pump housing was leaking due to some pre-existing damage and leaking on the floor. The repairman wanted 60.00 just to show up. I purchased a replacement pump from PartsSelect.com and installed it myself by taking off the bottom front panel (two screws on the bottom and unclamping the two hoses from the pump and the two screws holding the pump to the frame and then unsnapping the wiring coupler from the old pump. I pulled the old pump out through the front of the machine. I then installed the new pump and replaced the front cover. I saved myself a lot of money and everything went smoothly! The machine works great.

Bellow was torn at the door causing water to leak

  • Customer: Rich from Los Altos, CA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Socket set

I would recommend to remove the front loader door first. Then remove the clamp that holds the front of the bellow to the washer, Remove the top panel and then the front panel. Remove the band that holds the back of the bellow to the washer. Reverse the process to install the bellow. It helps to apply a little soapy water to make it easy to put the bellow on the track for both the front and back. It also helps to have four hands. Hope you have a friend or significant other.

Locking the drum for moving

Remove the plastic caps from the rear of the machine. Insert the locking bolts into the slots. There is a clip on the bolts with a corresponding hole in the outside edge of the slots, this tells you exactly where to place the bolt. In my case i used a large flat head screw driver to move the drum into alignment with the bolt by inserting the driver into a different slot and prying the drum into place. When i had the first bolt started and about hald way in, i did the diagonly opposite bolt, got that one about half way in then did th elast two. i did not need to pry much on these two as the drum was no lined up fairly well with the bolts. I tightened them up and moved the washer. You do NOT need to call a maytag agent to come out and do this.

Removed the old pump and installed the new one. Most difficulty came from the fact that the dryer is on top of the washer and the washer is inside a plastic pan that has a 2 inch lip which made it difficult to remover the front panel.
