Water was leaking from the bottom of the machine, tub wasn't filling

This was on a machine at a friends house I was watching while he was away. I spent more time looking for tools than the actual repair. Once I figured out how to get the front panel off (two bolts at the bottom of the front panel) the problem was easy to diagnose, water was running out of the pump seal. When the parts arrived the repair took about 15 minutes. Shut offpower. remove the 2 bolts holding the plastic cover over the wiring harness, remove the cover and unplug the wiring harness. Losen up the clamps on the hoses to the pump. Place a towel or drip pan under the pump when you pull the hoses lose. Next remove the four bolts at the base of the motor/pump mount. Slip the belt below the bottom of the tub pulley and remove the motor/pump assembly. Remember the position of the idler/tensioner pulley in relation to the belt. Pull the pump off the shaft by removing the three torx head screws holding the pump to the bracket and replace. Reverse the procedure to reassemble. It is a good idea to replace the belt when replacing the pump, the one in the machine I was repairing was cracked and dry, on its last lap. Good luck.

Leaking pump, torn belt, washer 24 yrs old

Please read the comments from other people before you start the repair. The hints are great, and save you time.
Removing the old pump from the shaft with two screwdrivers
by gently prying it off the shaft was the best idea. Once the pump is removed from the motor, it is a snap to replace the belt, and tension pulley if necessary.
The metal surfaces are sharp inside the machine, and I suggest placing a good light inside the machine so that you can see where the belt goes. Follow Joseph's instructions from Goldsboro NC to a tee, and your repair will be a great experience.

Seal on water pump was leaking

Unplug the washer to prevent shock while handling motor. Remove the front botton access panel. Move the drive belt off the idler pulley to provide slack to move belt off the other pulleys. Note position or take picture of belt position before removal to aid in getting it in the correct position for reinstallation. Move the hose clamps up the hoses far enough to remove the hoses from the pump. A towel is handy here as there is still a little water in the hoses and pump. Remove the four bolts holding the motor bracket to the bottom of the washer. The wiring to the motor does not need to be disconnected. Rotate the bracket with motor and pump attached so that the assembly is horizontal and the pump is to the right hand side. Use the torx bit to remove the bolts holding the pump in place. Install the new pump, being careful to get the drive belt in the proper position while doing so. Do not over tighten the bolts on the new pump since it is plastic. Rotate the motor bracket back to its original position and install the four bolts. Get all four bolts installed loosely before tightening any fully to insure the bracket is aligned properly and none of the bolts will be in a bind. Once the bolts are tight, put the drive belt on the small pulley and then work in around to position on the large pulley. Position the belt back into its position on the idler pulley. Put the hoses on the pump as far as they will go then slide the hose clamps back into their original position. Replace the bottom access panel and plug the washer back in.

Broken belt and the pump was damaged/stripped

To replace the pump and belt for the Maytag washer, you really need remove the springs and suspended the tubs. I needed help to pull the 2 springs out (high tension) with a big plier. I removed the 3 bolts that held the motor to the frame and flipped it out to the side to expose the 3 long screws that attached the pump to the motor. The pump was easily removed and replaced with the Philip screw driver. I preset the belt between the pump and the rotor before sliding the motor back in place. After botling the motor back into the frame and carefully pull and snap the spring back into the holes, I routed the belt around the pulley and turned it into the groove. This took some time to get it on properly as it is pretty tight. Once the cover was replaced, the washer worked as expected.
