Checked for 120 V AC at pump connector. It was present . Pump was hot. Ordered new pump. Changing the pump is a piece of cake. Just tilt machine back and rest on a brick. Remove 3 5/16th screws . Disconnect 2 hoses and 1 plug. Took 10 minutes tops. Back in business.

Leaking

  • Customer: Randy from ELLENSBURG, WA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 1 of 1 people found this instruction helpful
Used suggestions on list - water to lubricate bellows and an extra hand to secure the bellows. Biggest challenge was seating the bellow that attaches to the rim of the outer tub. After getting the bellow lip seated the rest was fairly easy including the bellow seat that secures to the outer door assembly. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that the bellow was the problem even though the symptoms - leaking under the door - was the same as noted on the list of problems. Had to order the dispenser-to-tub hose as that looks to be the problem (had to contort to follow the leak all the way up to the hose).

Only needed a pair of pliers for the clamps on the hoses connected to the pump. Removed the old pump ( no tools needed) and reinstalled the hoses. Works like a charm!

F21 Error - Water in washer not draining.

  • Customer: Christopher from GLENDALE, AZ
  • Difficulty: Really Easy

This repair is something even the most casual DIY'er could accomplish. What made this even easier for me was the fact that my washer was on a pedestal so accessing the 1/4" screws were extremely easy. There is no need to tilt or lift the washer. Just open the drawer and all three screws are visible. It also made draining the water out of the washer very convenient. The video perfectly describes how to accomplish the repair and allowed me to diagnose the problem by taking off the panel, opening the trap door and allowing the water to drain into a small trashcan until all the water is removed. I could physically see that the impeller was detached from the motor and found the culprit that caused the problem - a small vile of eye drops... From there, ordered the pump, two days later, replaced it with the new and I swear the new pump must be stronger than the original because towels come out near dry after a spin cycle. Very satisfying repair!

Replaced drain pump took longer to soak up water than actually replacing the pump motor with mine having the pedestal underneath I did not have to tip the washer at all so it was fast and easy. Three screws taking the front cover off a screwdriver lifting the Rubber and sliding the motor off and pair of pliers 4 to hose clamps making it a breeze.

It wouldn't drain anymore so I started looking on the internet for a solution. I came upon this website and found the part I needed. It was easy to install. It fixed the problem I had with the washer.

Washer belt stretched from years of use and walked off pulleys

  • Customer: Michael from PHOENIXVILLE, PA
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver

I pulled the washer away from the wall to comfortably access the back panel. I then removed about a dozen 1/4 drive screws. I had to remove all the screws in the panel and the screws and cross brace directly behind the drum in order to install the new belt. Note: it will seem like the belt is too small when in reality it is perfect. There is no type of adjustments or tensioners that I found so you need to place the belt on the motor pulley correctly and then walk the belt on the drum pulley. Make sure the belt is lined up with the marks on the drum pulley that the original belt had left. You may need to attempt to walk the belt on 2 or 3 times before it finally goes on. If you have any mechanical knowledge you will find this to be a gravy job.

Water leaked from front bellows. (Door gasket)

Easier if you block up front feet on 2x4 blocks. remove bottom front panel. Remove detergent dispenser tray. Remove top front panel. On door remove large round retainer clamp to bellows. (Pop off with screwdriver.) Remove door. Remove inner bellows clamp. Use phillips screwdriver to loosen it. If the input water filler hose is in the way, pull it out, but don't forget to put it back on or a flood will ensue!! Replace by doing everything in reverse order.
