Remove the screws from the front of the washer to get access to the bottom of the waher where the motor is the pump is located under the motor. remove 1 of the springs the holds the outer tube, remove 4 more screws to pull the motor out, remove the shield motor and pull the pump out replace w/new one and put everythig back together.( recomendation) pay attention to how thing are before you start if possible keep screws and label separate like top screw,middle screws etc....... thank you Lidia
Remove the front of the washer. Remove the pump and motor assembly using the 1/2 inch socket. Remove the pump from the motor and hoses from the pump. Replace the bad idler pulley and place new belt on pulley. Reassemble the pump to the motor and install the assembly back into the washing machine. Reasemble the hoses and put belt on driven pulley for the drum. Reinstall the front cover.
Laid washer on its side and had to remove the motor,replaced the pulley and belt replaced the motor and put all parts back together washer spins and runs like it did when it was new.we did not need the screw or nut but did not know when ordering parts
checked for unbalanced load. still banging. removed lower front panel by removing 2 screws. then removed front top panel- 2 more screws. turned unit on spin cycle to see what was going on. this is dangerous as many moving parts are exposed, so keep everything clear. banging was the tensioner slamming back and forth. unpluged washer from outlet and felt along the belt to find part of the 'v' shaped balt had come part, leaving a gap in the "v". ordered part.when i got the part, i removed 4 larger bolts that held the motor, pully, and pump. i unplugged the wires for the motor, and removed the belt from the bsket side pulley assembly by slipping it off and under the shaft. i removed the torx screws that held the pump on the motor and removed the belt. PAY ATTENTION to how the belt was in between the pully and pump assembly or you will have to remove and redo it. reassemble the pump over the belt, pully, motor, and put the belt on the drum side pully before bolting it to the washing machine. it is fairly heavy and tight, so you might need help. this was not hard and you do not need to take apart the washer except for the two front panels and the motor assembly. i just pulled the unit away from the wall and tipped it back to access the inside. take your time and pay attention, and make sure it is not plugged into the wall and you should be fine.
I used my three jaw slide hammer to remove the pump from the motor. How are other people getting it off? Pump made alot of rubbing noise after installation. I tried pushing it on farther and also prying it back off a little with no luck. It's really cheap looking and I was scared of breaking it. The thing wasn't leaking so I called it good....
I first ordered the parts and to my dismay, I ordered the wrong belt for the spin belt. I called customer service in which received an Return Merchandise Number and ordered the correct belt. PartSelect was prompt on sending the correct out by FedEx, thank you for an excellent experience.
Basically you have to remove the drive motor and pump (in that order). This allows you to get the belt around the drive motor pully wheel. It took me a few tries to get the belt routed right. I assume that if you know what you are doing you can complete this in under an hour. It took me about 4 hours, though - cause I didn't know what I was doing at first. Hehe.Hope this helps.
Removed front lower panel, removed 4 bolts holding motor, removed water hoses draining water into a pot, unplugged electrical connector on motor, removed motor, removed water pump from motor (torex bit), separated pump from motor. installed belt reassembled washer in reverse order. To my surprise, it worked and was easy.
Replacing the spin belt is like the others have said, but I'll add a couple of cautions. Don't try to separate the driven pulley on the water pump from the pump shaft. Instead, separate the water pump from the driven pulley. And, make sure you know the routing of the belt for reassembly, because it has to go between the correct legs that support the water pump. Get it wrong and you'll have to start all over. I pulled the machine away from the wall by about 18" and put a block of wood under the front of the machine to raise only the front to 9" or 10" off the floor which made it easier to do the work. Try and take a digital photo of the belt routing from a couple of angles before beginning. Don't forget to route the belt around the tensioner pulley.
tilt the washer back removed bottom panal .removed bracket holding motor took motor out removed 3 scewer holding pump. took belt off put new one on. about 45 mins pretty easy job
