Belt had worn and was shredding and melting due to pump not draining tub. Too bad my wife and daughters couldn't tell me the pump wasn't working right any sooner. The belts slow disintigration over time made a black, gooey mess inside the machine. Worked on the machine in place and only removed front. Old belt removal was easy with screwdriver prying around motor pulley but replacement was challenging in the tight space under the machine. It did go on by working-rotating belt around back of agitator pulley. By far the hardest part of the job. Replacing pump was easy enough but made a water mess and had to adjust clamps for leaks. Machine is now good to go.

Unplug elect. & Turn off both water valves. Pulled front panel (use small putty knife to release 2 snap locks at top. ) Removed 2 1/4" screws and lifted top panel up and off(unplug lid switch lead plug at right rear of top)remove adjutator cap ( if no hole with nut at bottom ) just lift up on adjutator. Hold at 180 and lift from side to side till it pops up. (Put a towel or rage over top of the adjutator as when it comes loose it will jump up and hit you in the face)remove filter plates-2-and replace with new style self-cleaning. With the top lid off I noticed that two of the tub dampening straps were broken. Replace all 4 with new ones. Reverce operation and I was good to go

Removed front panal & operate to see leak origion. Found the side of the pump cracked and split. Part Select sent the exact replacement part! Unplug washer. Remove ront panal; using a putty knife and a bit of preasure at the two release clips. Using pliers or small vise grips, squeeze hose clamps and locate back out of the way and remove two hoses. Have a shallow pan below to catch remainig water. Unhook the electric connections, taking note of where. Using nut driver or small ratchet, remove the two mounting screws and pump. I used new screw type hose clamps in lieu of the originals.

First I unplugged the washer and then removed the front panel of the washing machine using the puddy knife running it along the top edge approximately 3 inches inward from each corner found the tab on each end and pushed in with the knife until the panel popped loose from the top tabs. I then located the pump motor on the lower front right side of the machine and compared it to the new one that I had purchased,(they were the same) Note;be sure all the water is drained from the washer otherwise get ready for a bath approximately 1 gallon of water came out of the drain hose that is located on the back of the pump after using the pliers to squeeze the clap and remove the hose,this was the worst of the whole job,then remove the inlet hose on the top by squeezing the spring clamp with the pliers. Next unplug the harness located in the front of the pump,and then last take a 1/4 drive ratchet w/extension and a 10 mm socket and remove the 2 hex screws on the mounting plate. Install the new pump and motor assembly in reverse order with the instructions above and you should be washing clothes in no time. Thanks

agitator stopped agitating

There are many on-line videos to help you do this. It's so easy, even a beginner handyperson can do it. For this model, just run a strap under the agitator to assist you in lifting it up off the coupler (good tug). Remove the old worn coupler, put the new one on, set the agitator back on by giving it a little downward push.

Agitator would not agitate

The repair was really simple. I pulled off the agitator cap by hand, then put my fingers under the agitator itself. There should be some play in how much the agitator can be lifted up. Some instructions and how-to videos tell you to use a leather belt to remove the agitator but I didn't have a problem removing it with my hands. One quick, hard pull did the trick. Under the agitator, you'll see the agitator coupling, which s held on buy a 7/16" bolt on top. Use a nut driver or a socket to remove the bolt and pull the coupling straight up. Use a wire brush to scrape away all the crud underneath it and on the metal splines. Once the area is reasonably clean, slide the new coupling into place and reattach it with the new bolt that is provided. Line up the grooves in the coupling with the grooves in the agitator and snap it back down into place. Replace the agitator cap and you're all done.

First i noticed a small leak coming from the pump assembly dripping onto the motor/pump bracket with indications that it had been doing this for some time.Looking @ this i then took the pump/motor assembly off cleaning the inlet and outlet of pump off so i could plug one side of the pump while blowing into the inlet side of the pump verifying that the gaskets around the pump assembly was in fact leaking.Replacement was very easy.Purchased a new pump/motor assembly from parts select and received it in three days.Used a flat tip screw driver to press on top front clips pulled away from front of washer then up and off.The pump/motor assembly only has two screws holding it down then i pulled off the electrical connector after that used channel locks to remove both inlet and outlet hoses off pump.Installed new. very easy
