CustomerLeonid from Suffern NY

Washer was leaking when I moved into my new house.

First disconnected water hoses, put machine on the back, removed hoses from the pump, then removed two metal retainers that hold the pump. Motor's shaft got so rusty, that I could not remove the pump. I spent two days (few hours each day), until I finally was able to snap it off. If that wasn't difficult enough, putting new pump on was even harder. Metal rusted thru, and expanded from long leaking (previous owners probably had this problem for a while). I spent a lot of time filing it down with dremel tool, until finally I was able to attach the pump on the motor. I almost gave up in the process, but I'm glad I didn't, it works great. Motor might fail soon tho due to the rust.

Leaking after wash cycle

The new pump should have come with an explosive charge to remove the old pump, but the new pump was an exact match and ground shipping was super fast.

Leaking water from washing machine

I am more than happy to relate this...my 15 month old Whirlpool washer was having a slow leak. Initially, I did not suspect it was the water pump because the appliance was fairly new. When I flipped the washer over, I saw clearly it was comming from the water pump. This pump comes right off after you snap off two clips and loosen two hose clamps. Takes all of 2 minutes! I took the part off and looked for a part number. Then I punched in the part number on my internet and low and behold parts select was one of the links that came up. I just cliqued my way through the order and FEDEXed the part. It came the NEXT BUSINESS DAY! I had it snapped back on and that took another 2 minutes. Don't pay anyone to do this, it's a shame...it's sooooo easy and Partsselect will ship you the part next day. This repair cost me 67 dollars (34 for the part and shipping). Could have easily been 150.00 by a repair man. EASY JOB...NO DOUBT ABOUT IT

Washer was not emptying water & water was dirty

I have changed this part before so it was somewhat easy, we found our daughters baby sock in the old water pump which caused the problem.

CustomerLouis from Yuma AZ

The plastic pump got hot & melted at the connection of the motor shaft.

I undid the connections in order to pull the machine out & laid it on it's back. The pump has two hose connections that require pliers to remove & reinstall. The pump is held in place with two metal "clips" that can be loosened with a screw driver. Then install in reverse order. I live in Yuma, Az. where we have salty water. I belive the problem was caused by wth water evaporating & leaving the dry salt to act like sand & create the heat to melt the plastic.

Worn out water pump

I took two screws that held the entire washer together. Then I released two clips and two spring hose clamps and pulled the pump off the motor shaft. I reversed the above procedure to install the new pump. I was washing clothes within 15 minutes.

CustomerCornelis from Garland UT

Washer was leaking from the front end of the bottom

I removed the top as instructed and verified the pump was leaking. Getting the top back on is a little tricky, but if you angle it right it goes right back on. After ordering and receiving the replacement part from partselect I removed the top from the washer again using a philips screwdriver, and used pliers to shift the hose clamps of the old pump so I could remove them. There was about a quart of water in the hoses and the towels I put underneath took care of that. Then I removed the clamps holding the pump in place (no tools needed there) and put the replacement in. works beautifully!

CustomerOlive from Williamsburg OH

Washer was leaking underneath

I tilted the washer back to gain access to the pump.
Using an adjustable wrench I squeezed the clips to remove the 2 hoses. Used a screwdriver to remove the clips holding the pump in. Removed the old pump, put the new one on. Put the clips on, attached the 2 hoses and using the wrench I put the clips back in place on the hoses. So simple!

Water leaked from pump

Once I supported the washer to get access from the bottom, I disconnected the two hose clamps with my pliers, pulled the hoses off (make sure you have a towel handy to catch the excess water), pop the two retaining clips holding the pump to the motor, replace pump and hook everything back up. Couldn't be any easier. PartSelect.com is AWESOME.
