CustomerLLOYD from Moffett Field, CA

Old water pump was leaking, needed replacment

## WHAT I WISH I'D KNOWN BEFORE I STARTED ##
1. Remove the four hoses first.
2. remove the three screws holding the pump to the structure above BEFORE loosening the flex clamp.
3. with the pump free of the hoses and rest of the washer, then remove the flex coupling clamp from the pump end only; do not remove the flex coupling from the motor.
4. remove the old pump.
5. attach the new pump to the top of the flex coupling BEFORE attaching the pump to the upper part of the washer. This is the most difficult step, to get the flex coupling on the pump in a secure fashion using the clamp. It's much easier to do if the pump is not yet connected to the rest of the washer.
6. attach the pump to the washer with the three mounting screws.
7. re-attach the hoses.
8. run the washer and check for leaks.

I made the mistake of taking the flex coupling off the motor then tried to put the flex coupling on the motor and the pump when the pump was already attached to the washer. Major grief :>(

Good luck, it's well worth the effort.

Customerthomas from bloomsburg, PA

Replace water pump

Unplug the machine. Turn it face down. Take the back off. Take the four hoses off the pump. Unscrew the screw holding the connection to the motor and carefully slide the brace off without bending it. Remove the 3 screws holding the pump on. Take the old pump out. Screw the 3 screws back on. Attach the drive mechanism with the clamp carefully being sure to even it out under the clamp as you tighten it. Reattach the hoses. One of my hoses leaked after wards so I had to trim a half inch off to get a better grab on the pump. Put the back on and stand her up. Plug it in and test her out.

CustomerEugene from Sun City West, AZ

Water leak through seal of pump

After removing the rear cover I removed all the hose connections as this gives a better access to the mounting screws. Next disconnect the drive coupling. Remove the 2 inner mount screws frist then remove the 3rd screw.
Reversing this procedure makes mounting the new pump easy. Also I went to GE's web site and downloaded the parts sheet that also gave me the number for the proper pump.
