This washing machine pump is white in color and has four ports for water to pass through.
This part works with the following brands: GE, Hotpoint & Kenmore.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
## 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.

loosen the clamp holding the flex coupling then remove the 3 screws holding pump in place remove old pump and coupling best to have washer laying on it's face for easy access to screws. install coupling on new pump and install togeather then attach flex coupling to drive motor...
I removed the four hoses that were connected to it, then I removed the three screws holding the pump in place. Then I removed the drive adapter that was connecting the pump to the motor. I then did everything in reverse order to install the new pump and everything worked just fine. Thanks!
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.
Repair was relativly simple. I read previous customer direction submissions. I found that laying the front of the washing macine down removing the back panel gave easy access to the water pump. Remove all 4 hoses first then with a 11/32nd socket remove the top 3 screws that are holding up the pump. At the bottom of the pump unscrew the clamp until the pump will slide out of the rubber stabelizer.(Leave stabelizer attached to the motor) Remove the pump and in reverse order replace with new pump leaving the back cover off of the machine. Set the washing machine upright and check for leeks. After checking for leeks attach the back panel onto the washing machine.
Tilted the washing machine, removed 4 hoses from the pump and the drive connector;removed 3 nuts that hold the pump; installthe new pump and put back the hoses; to be safe, I unplugged the electric
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. E. Renico
Husband did it. Tipped machine onto its front. Took out some screws and disconnected a wire and removed hoses from pump. Then put it all back and it is as good as new. This is the second pump in two years, but it beats the price of a new machine. Your service is excellent. Both times, I have ordered the part is here the next morning. Never have had such service from anywhere else. I am telling all my friends about your web site.
Laid washer face down, unscrewed the 3 screws holding part to brackets. Removed the hose connections to the pump part. loosened the clamp around the base of the pump and pulled the part out. inserted new pump, tightened the clamp, reconnected the hoses, and bolted the part to the brackets. First time through, one of the hoses was not tight enough, so we put a new clamp on it and it worked fine.
I own a vacation rental two hours from my home. Our guestssaid that there was water coming out from under the washer.I called our local handyman Lolo who is very bright. He cameover and looked at the washer and saw that a plastic part was leaking. He got on your website and put the part number in and we had our part within two or three days of ordering it.I was impressed by your having this older part-maybe 15 year old washer,the fast delivery since we didn't do it by rush order. I also didn't have to hire an expensive repair service company. We are back in business thanks to your quick service and delivery. We will use you again in the future for sure.Best Regards,Trish W HaskellBorrego Springs, CA
