This product comes in a bottle with a brush like Liquid Paper. It goes on incredibly easy. A second coat might be needed. I wanted to prevent rust from setting in so I covered the scratches and dings. The paint is a little brighter since my washer is 10 years old but it still looks great.

My husband removed the bottom panel of the washer and removed the old pump with two screws, then removed the water hose coming into the pump and unplugged the electrical push in type plug from the side of the pump. Simple reversed the process to instal the new one and replaced the front panel. Simple really...far more so than calling a repair man.

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 searched the internet for parts because we had just had a repairman out to fix the knocking noise in the washer drum. He found an underwire from a bra there and removed it. That cost about $100.

My husband took apart the bottom panel and showed me what the part looked like and I was able to find it on your website. I was able to order the parts and have my husband repair the washer so I was only without a washer for a week and a half. Thank you.

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.

replaced leaking bellows

  • Customer: thomas from santa cruz CA

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.

stripped the threads on the water inlet

Be careful threading the hose to the water inlet or you
can end up cross threading or stripping the threads, they are plastic and can easily be stripped.
It will save you time and $.
Unscrew the top of the washer and remove it. Removed a weirdo screw with a pair of pliers since I didn't have the tool to remove it.
Took out the old one and replaced it with the new one. Replaced the weirdo screw with a drywall screw and screwed it in place. Carefully threaded the hoses on and turned on the water. Success!
