Water pump failed

Obvious problem: belt destroyed. The plastic pulley on the motor was damaged beyond repair. Since you can't replace just the plastic pulley, you have to purchase another motor. The machine still would not spin. Checked the pump again. The bearings might be bad. Replaced pump; Success! washer works again. Total repair: belt $15.68, new pulley with motor $132.00, and new pump $80.00. Estimated cost to repair about $228.00. Time to troubleshoot. 1 hour, time to fix 1 hour; Total time in labor about 2 hours.

Washer made a loud noise during spin-eventually stopped spinning

I was able to get the belt off easily but the belt was fine. I changed the snubber easily also. But that wasn't the problem. I went through all the parts that are easy enough to change without a mechanic but turned out it was something inside the innerbasket and we had to junk the washer and it was only 4 yrs old.

CustomerJoel from Grand Rapids, MI

Belt was not turning

The reason for the belt not turning was because of a cover in the water pump pulley which did not allow the water pump to rotate and that's why the belt and the plastic motor pulley burn out. First I removed that cover and then removed the belt, the pulley was easy simply by breaking all the little teeth with a screwdriver then the pulley can be remove by using a screwdriver as a lever. putting the pulley, simply use a plastic hammer so it does not get damage be patient. finally the belt and you are done, hopefully this will help someone.

CustomerDale from Thompson, ND

Overloading, and general abuse of the machine had caused the motor and spin pulleys to burn and the belt to slip. (pungent burn odor)

I used a small screw driver to remove the teeth from the motor pully and fit the puller on the pulley with a small socket protecting the end of the shaft. it came off easily with a few turns on the puller. I placed the new motor pulley on the shaft and tapped it into place with a small dead-blow mallet (a hammer with a hollow, heavy, plastic head filled with sand). Unfortunately, the spin /transmission shaft pulley was an incorrect part for the application and the motor turned out to have some internal heat damage. I was not able to apply this part because it was the wrong application but if it is you are in luck. The clip removal is the same and install this pulley flat side down and reassemble. If not, read on. I removed the motor by removing the front panel, removing the three bolts securing the motor to the plate, and disconnecting the wiring plugs and ground wire. I lucked out finding a spin pulley and motor rebuild kit locally. After rebuilding the motor with the new bushings, brushes, etc. from the kit, I reinstalled it by reversing the removal steps. I then removed the spin/trans pulley by removing a plastic grease cup/cover from the end shaft and removed the C-clip and washer holding the pulley in place with a small screw driver. I was careful not to let the pulley and washer/thrust washer stack on top of it fall off so I could be sure of the order in which they should be reinstalled. I applied fresh grease and reversed the disassembly proceedure making sure to drive the C-clip fully into the slot on the shaft with a large flat-tip screwdriver and the mallet. I cleaned, regreased, and reinstalled the grease cup/cover back into place firmly making sure it snapped into place. I slipped the belt back on the pulleys and reinstalled the front panel with the two screws at the top inside corners. The job was done.
