CustomerJohn from Milton PA

Frayed v-belt

VERY EASY!!!
SAFETY FIRST-Always unplug the appliance.
Use 8mm socket to remove front panel screws. Loosened up two hose clamps connected to the pump and removed both lines (Hoses contain water, use a towel) which is located underneath the motor. Disconnect motor electrical connector on the left side of the motor. With socket, remove 4 mounting bracket screws that secure the motor and pump assembly. Pull back the tension/idler pulley to loosen belt off the main pulley to the washer drum. Tilt and pull out motor/pump assembly. Underneath the pump, use star-bit to remove the pump from motor assembly to remove the belt. Install new belt on motor pulley (Good time to check for debris or anything restricing free movement of pump) and re-install pump. Install the motor/pump assembly and loosely secure the motor/pump assembly. Place the belt onto the motor pulley and pull back the tensioner/idler pulley to allow slack of belt to be placed on washer drum pulley. Put the belt on the lip of the drum pulley and rotate while pulling back the tensioner/idler pulley until the belt is seated on the groove of the drum pulley. Tighten the motor/pump assembley. Re-attach the 2 hoses and tighten down the clamps. Re-connect the electrical connector to the motor...Don't forget to plug in the washer and secure the front panel...Piece 'O cake, you're done! About 15 minutes to do the job. Much like changing a belt on most vehicles.

CustomerTim from Cumming GA

Machine stopped in spin cycle and smell of burnt plastic.

Removed pump/motor assembly. Had a difficult time removing pump from motor. Was not aware that the shaft was not connected some way! After looking over the internet for help....I finally realized that the shaft was siezed in the pump. After much persuasion on my part....it broke loose... I did use some WD-40....but don't know if it....or my prying between the pulley and the pump finally did the trick. Found that the idler pulley was seized. When I replaces both belt and pulley... It worked fine...

CustomerCharles from Cliff NM

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.

CustomerPeter from Westport MA

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.

Wouldn't agitate or spin.

This was my fist time attempting to fix a washer. I had to guess on the length of the belt since the model number on the machine had worn off and the belt had snapped in a way that made determining the length difficult. At first, I ordered a belt that was too small. I realized this after I was unable to remount the motor stand onto the bottom of the machine. This model had the motor assembly right in front of the unit. It was easily accessed after removing the panel on the front of the machine. It was easy to remove the 4 screws (they were all visible) on the motor stand. After that I was able to disconnect the pump belt. This machine has seperate belts for agitation and the pump. The pump belt must be removed in order to install the agitator belt because they both are driven by the same shaft and the pump belt is positioned on the bottom. There is also a tension wheel for the agitator belt which might be easily overlooked. Make sure to install the agitator belt so that the tension wheel is on the outside of the belt's path. The whole job is fairly easy if you have the right part to begin with. If you have to force the belt onto the wheels, then you probably have a belt that is too small.

CustomerBrian from Hopewell VA

Water pump leak

Un plug machine. Turn off hot & cold water. Remove the front panel by removing the 2 screws at the botton & lift front from the bottom until it unhinges from the top. Tilt the washer back far enough to put a contaner to catch the water left in the hoses. Loosing the hose clamps so the water comes out slowly. If you remove the hose to fast your container won't catch the water. Do one hose at a time. Next disconnect the wiring harnes from the motor. Remove the 4 screws holding the pump/motor. Disconnect the belt from the washer. You will have to tilt the pump/motor to get slack in the belt. Remove the pump/motor & the belt will come with it. This is when I found that the belt was toast & I had to order a belt. Paid shipping twice. once for pump & once for belt. Seperate pump from motor by removing 3 screws. My pump came right off. Reverse the operation to install. REMEMBER TO PUT THE BELT ON BEFORE THE PUMP.

Pump leaking. Replaced aging belt.
