washer was not spinning

We have a washer/dryer stack type. For a week or so, my wife mentioned that washer is louder than normally is, shortly, the washer stopped spinning and the clothes were finishing soaking wet.

I opened the front panel sheet and saw the broken belt, ordered the belt online. The belt arrived in 2 days, and the actual belt-replacement took 10 minutes. The washer functional like new.

Ordered this part to replace a drain hose that had been cut short on the washer. Installation was straight-forward. Removed the two front screws to access the cabinet. Locate the drain hose and remove with a pair of pliers. Install the new part and attach the clamp with the pliers just like removal. Took about 15 minutes.

I looked up the repair on You Tube and it looked easy! Take off the top of the machine (unplug and disconnect water first), 2 wire connections and 2 screws to mount. The only problem I had was screwing the mounting plate on the machine. It needed some help enlarging the hole a tad, I used an awl. Reconnect the water and plug in.This Granny rocks!

Removed old pump and installed new pump in same order. Only problem was reinstalling wire spring clamps with hoses on new pump. Not enough room to use pliers to open clamp. Otherwise a simple installation. A small vise grip pliers might help to hold clamp open. Check and rotate inlet/outlet end of pump as included directions describe first before installation.

Poped up top, removed front pannel (2 phillip head screws) observed failed belt. Replaced belt. Tensioner can be held back by hand so it was easy. Works great. Part Select Rocks! I put in the model number and bam, there was my needed part, 3 days later it was in my hands. This was after me wasting time driving around town trying to find it at home depot type stores to no avail. I'll never do that again. This website makes repairing appliances a snap.

Pump leaked

At first I thought the o-ring may have wear out so I took the pump out to check, but the leak was either from the shaft seal or body itself (hard to tell as body had corrosion on it) taken out the pump was very easy, but you need to use the right pliers to easily remove the spring clamps. Follow instruction to set the housing orientation, and than install back the pump. Reinstalling one of he hoses using the spring clamps took few tries, but it was in place in no time. remember not to install the cover before you operate the washer to verify no leaks. This work is realy very very easy.

1. Turned off water to washing machine.
2. Used plyers to disconnect the hoses at the back of the washer.
3. Unscrewed old inlet valve from back.
4. Opened top panel of washer and disconnected hose running to wash basin.
4. Lifted the old unit out and unplugged electrical wiring.
5. Reverse above and you're finished!
If you're reading this you can probably do the repair.
Saved myself $500+ on a new washing machine. Wife is happy.

Drain hose should come with the two clips (45B)that hold the drain hose to the back of the machine. I had to cut the old hose off. Then very carefully remove the clips from the inside of the machine with a pair of pliers.
