Emptied washing machine tub with a small plastic bowl into a 5 gallon bucket, finihsing up last bit of water by soaking it up with towels. I next removed front panel on washing machine by unscrewing two screws on the bottom front, left and right, to gain access to the pump. Loosened two hose clamps and detached two hoses, catching remining water from washertub. moved washer out from wall about 3 feet and tilted washer back towards wall so I could access the inderneath of washer to lossen three bolts that held pump in place. removed belt from pum to motor and examined fro glaze or wear (none detected) and then removed pum and reversed steps to install new pump, reinstalling belt faily loosly, per instructions. Tried washer to see if ssue resolved and once confirmed, replaced the front panel. Have done multiple washes since then (at least 10) and no further issues. Very economical solution (under $100) and sense of pride with fixing applianmce myself. This web page was very informative and saved me a lot of money and time. Thanks!

I followed the instructions from the video on the site. It went more difficult than the video showed but it was due to the washer. The instructions were very good. The only really difficult step was taking the bearing sleeve off of the transmission shaft. I ended up with a Dremmel tool and cutting it off. It only took 5 minutes, if that long. The washer has run very well since the repair.

Tub was always going out of balance even when level

Put the parts on as described in your on-line videos. Was never able to get the metal sleeve off the old machine while installing the Mounting Stem/Tub Seal Kit. I didn't want to cut the sleeve for fear that I wouldn't be able to install the new one and ruin the machine. Video needs to address that issue more fully. Chances are that if these parts need replaced, then the sleeve will be as tight as ours - they won't just slide off like the video shows.

I assumed the belts were bad and were slipping on the pulleys. It took about 10 minutes to install the new belts, however the problem was in the washer transmission which was a difficult and expensive repair and after 22 years of fauless operation,

Shut off the hot water supply (pretty sharp eh?). Disconnected the hose from the hw supply and the at the connection to the washing machine. These had not been touched in at least 15 years and were somewhat tough to loosen but finally came ..... accessibility was a problem for the connection to the water supply as it was in a recessed wall box. Fortunately, we had some washers for the hose connections so the install was a snap. Hardest part of the whole job was moving the washing machine out from between the drier and the wash tub .... tight fit. Thanks for the quick service and to FED EX for their delivery. The delivery fellow was a real gentleman.

Purchased x4 new adjustable legs. Leaned the washer back and held in place with block of wood. Loosened the two older front legs with an adjustable wrench because they had a locking nut and replaced with new legs. Repeated process on back side of washer. Once all the new legs were installed leveled the machine adjusting the legs if necessary.

Washer would not drain.

Washer had been making unusually loud noise then one day I heard a pop and it was quiet but still trying and trying to drain. I lifted the washer to find the belt and motor pulley on the floor so I knew what was broken. I looked up the part on the schematic on your site and noticed what that others had the wont drain problem. I ordered the part and when it arrived I used the wrench to line it up in place, tightened it and just like that it drained the tub......SO SO EASY! A little deductive reasoning goes a LONG way!!!

Pump not working; belt too loose (the belt was not very old)

  • Customer: Blix from Houston, TX
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours

  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
First of all I had water in the machine that I had to bail out before I could tilt it back in order to work on the motor trolley, which is where the tension springs are located. I thought that the pump was not working because the tension springs that held the motor trolley back to ensure tension on the tub belt & the pump belt, were not strong enough. However, when I got the tension springs in, they were not any stronger than the springs I had. So, then I thought the only thing left to do was order a new pump belt, which I have already done. If that doesn't work, then I don't have any idea what will. I might try taking the belt I have to Auto Zone & seeing if they have one slightly smaller...beyond that, I don't know. If either the tub belt or pump belt is too tight, then one may cancel out the effectiveness of the other...very precarious. Hope this might help someone else.

Drain Pump Leaking

1. Removed the front panel from the washing machine. This entailed removing two phillips head screws on the bottom left and right of the panel. Then, I pulled the bottom of the panel out and up until the top of the panel was disengaged from the machine. 2. Noted the belt tension on the old pump so I could install the new one correctly with the same tension. 3. Removed the two hoses from the pump, and the three screws securing the pump to the washer. 4. Installed the new pump providing the belt the same tension as I observed on the old pump. 5. Installed the hoses and tightened the hose clamps. 6. Reistalled the front panel and ran the washer. Works fine!
