The pump was cracked

Simple. Removed two hose clamps, pulled off the hoses, removed the clips that held the pump in place and removed the old pump and then simply did the same thing in reverse to put the new pump in. It was easy and the pump was an exact match.

Pump went bad, direct drive washer

the hard part was getting the pump off of the rusted centerpeice. i actually had to grab the pump with both hands, put my feet on the rotator and PULL. finally it basically snapped off and rusted peices went flying. after cleaning it the new pump went on rather easily, with the help of a rubber mallet.

Water leak in front of the machine.

Removed the four screws from the control housing. Disconnect wire to machine housing. Remove the two clips connecting the machine housing to the back. Remove washing machine housing. Pump is located right in front. Disconnect hoses, remove and replace pump, reconnect hoses. Replace the machine housing. This was the hardest part if all trying to reinstall the housing.Once you get the machine housing in place correctly, put everything back together. You just saved about $125 in fifteen minutes.

Leaking pump

Luckily this washer was in the garage and was being made ready to replace an old broken washer. Being able to lay the washer on its side made the job much easier than if it was upright in the laundry closet.

Removal of the old pump was simply a matter of releasing the two clamps holding the input and output hoses and removing the two spring clips holding the pump in place on the motor shaft.

The new pump install required a reversal of the above and took about 3 minutes. It was a very easy and successful repair.

The washer was leaking from the water pump underneath the front of the washer.

First, I laid the washer upon its back and removed the two clamps that held the water pump in place.
with wire pliers.
Next I removed the two inlet water hoses from the pump and sat that pump aside. I then placed the new water pump upon the shaft of the washer and secured the two water inlet hoses back on the new pump wth the clamps. I tightened them with the wire pliers slipping the clamp upon the hoses. Lastly , I snapped the two wire clamps that hold the pump in place back in their groves and immediately placed the washer up right .

Water not draining from tub

1) Disassembled the lid
2) Took the front Panel off (the old water pump was in the bottom left hand corner in plain site).
3) Used flat head screw driver to gentle pry the top and bottom water pump fasterners.
4) Used pliers to remove top hose camp. Note this is where I discovered why everyone says to put the washer on it back. Water came rushing out. Luckily no damage to the motor.
5) Used pliers to remove the bottom hose clamp.
6) Put everything back together Total time <30 minutes.

Unfortunately, the water is still not completely draining. I am now looking at the hoses for obstructions. Any other suggestions?
Thanks

Water leaking from under clothes washer

Isolated problem to front section of washer by elevating and adding water. Once I identified the pump as leaking (it was pretty obvious:>)I used a screwdriver to release the snaps that hold the pump to the drive motor. After sliding the pump off of the drive motor I used the pliers I release the clamps on the two hoses. Next I logged on to Partselest.com and ordered a replacement. The item arrived in two days. I placed the pump on the motor first then connected the hoses. It was much easier to slide the hose clamps to the proper position with the pump held secure on the motor.

A leaking pump

My husband got the part within 2 days of the order and replaced the leaking pump within a half hour. The repair was very quick and easy for him and your company's prompt delivery prevented my floor from getting wet everytime I did a load of laundry. Thank you and we will continue to get parts from your site in the future--hopefully we won't need to anytime soon. but we know you are there if we need to repair!
