Drive belt was squealing and slipping

I wasted time opening up the metal container for the washing machine, which was easier than expected. The top simply pops off with a little bit of prying with a screwdriver, then the front panel is held in place with two sheet metal screws. The front panel then lifts off and you can see the exterior case for the tub drive mechanism and motor. But, it wasn't obvious what was wrong until I tilted the entire unit backwards and saw the drive belt available directly under the machine and fully accessible without any tools. It was obvious, because there was a 1/8" worth of belt fragment dust under the machine. A new belt was all it needed and after I ordered it from PartSelect, I simply jimmied the old belt off the main pulley and put the new one on. It no longer squeals or slips. Hopefully, I gained another 5 years of life out of the washing machine.

Making a lot of noise during wash and drain cycle.

The drain pump assembly was going bad. It eventually froze and burned the drive belt and motor pulley up. I replaced the drain pump by removing 3 screws. I replace the motor pulley and belt in about 5 minutes without removing any parts. Simple fix. Ran through 3 cycles and works perfectly. Thanks!

CustomerEd from Adamsville, TN

During the first rinse cycle, a loud metal to metal grinding sound occured. I shut down the machine and inspected thebottom of the washed and found the water pump hard to move. Obviously there was a problem.

I simply emptied the machine of all the water, tilted the washer on its side,removed the small gray access panel located on the back of the washer, removed both hoses and the drive belt. Then I removed the three screw bolts that hold the water pump in place. Then I replaced the old pump with the new on by just following the process in reverse. I did notice that the new pump did not come with a metal support plate(at least thats what I called it. No problem though when I found out from a local repairman that its a newer design. Total time less than 15 minutes.

Washer shakes and dances

No need to buy a brake wrench nor the expensive spring remover. Once the drum is out the washer turn it upside down and loose the screws holding the transmission about a little more than half way, to give the new snubber enough room to fit in, them tigh and assamble everything back together

Washer made awful grinding sound then quit spinning

I took the bad water pump off installed the new one and hooked up the new drive belt. Overall it took me twenty minutes, not all that hard to do.
