Replace washer pump

  • Customer: Dana L from Los Gatos, CA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver

We noticed that water was on the ground of the laundry room. We initially thought that the washer was leaking. Realized that the washer was going on the spin cycle without draining the water which caused the water the slosh over the edges and then leak on the floor. Well, I had to remove all the wet clothes and suck the water out with a shop vaccuum-this actually took most of the time. After taking the front of the washer off, we noticed the water pump was stripped out. After removing the pump, we then noticed one of our kid's socks jammed in the pump. How the sock got there is still a mistery. We found the replacement part on PartSelect and ordering was easy and fast. Thanks. We're washing clothes again.

Pump Leaking

  • Customer: Jeffry from Rancho Cucamonga, CA
  • Difficulty: Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours

I seemed to have a more difficult time changing the pump out than others who had left their instructions on line prior to me.
What I has to do is remove the 4 bolts that secured the motor & mount to the frame. I then unplugged the wire harness from the motor leads.
I removed the belt tensioning spring & removed the belt.
I then removed the motor, motor mount and pump assembly. Turned it upside down & removed the pump. When installing the new pump you will need to remember how the belt was routed. A local parts house actually gave me a xeroxed schematic that showed me how to route it. A real life saver.
After that I turned the assembly right side up, bolted the mount into place, installed the new belt onto the large flywheel, attached the belt tension spring, plugged in the wiring harness and ran a rinse cycle. No leaks. Good as new.
Yes. It took a little longer than expected. But it was alot cheaper than having a service man do it.

I was able to remove the belt because it was worn through. However, I was unable to remove the pump as described in the instructions because I was unable to get my torq wrench to the bolts. I ended up having a repairman come in.

Wow! My husband and I researched the problem online and ordered the part after reading from others how to take the machine apart. We are very unhandy, so we felt quite an accomplishment fixing the drain hose with rubber elbow ourselves! Thank you for the diagrams that so clearly showed the part we needed to order.

Water Pump Leak

  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Socket set, Wrench set

I removed the front lower panel. I disconnected the springs holding the motor to the chassis. I removed the belt off the pump pulley. Pay attention to the way the belt runs from the pulley and through the pump. This will aid in placing the pump back on so the belt runs correctly. Disconnected the wires, removed the capacitor bracket so I could take the motor/pump unit out after I removed the 4 bolts holding the motor/pump unit. Removed the 3 torx screws holding the pump to the motor. Matched the new pump to the old to make sure the new one was correct.

Installed in reverse order.

Water Leak

Although the Maytag website no longer had a repair manual in their database, I was able to locate one fairly easily online. After removing the motor/washer pump, it was easy to remove the 3 screws holding the washer pump to the motor. Unfortunately, it turned out the motor hub shaft had corroded and removing the pump needed some ... persuasion. Patience and a rubber mallet eventually separated the water pump from the motor. Re-installing went quickly and, so far, no leaks and the washing machine has not started walking across the floor.
