Door latch module was defective
This model is a front-loading washer. The spring loaded retainer for the front of the boot must be removed, then the boot can moved to the side exposing the module. Remove the two screws holding the model, pull the model out, remove the three electrical plugs, then reverse this procedure to install new module.

water pump failed
Pump started making noises like ball bearings grinding. took the lower front cover off pulled the strainer out of the pump housing and found $2.55 in nickles dimes and quarters. Some 223 bullets and about 20 bobby pins. Together they had destroyed the impeller, so ordering a new one and installing it did the trick. Easy installation about 15mins.

Replaced Drain Pump on Whirlpool HE Duet Sport Washer
This do it yourself repair saved me the cost of a repair man's service call plus time to put it in. 1. First of all, make sure the unit is unplugged. On this type of front loading washer you will need to remove the bottom panel, which is secured by 3 nut screws. 2. Once the panel is removed you will need to use pliers to unscrew the drain plug and allow for excess water to drain out before removing the drain pump (get a pan or something that will fit underneath the drain). This is the area in which all the loose stuff, like coins and everything else falling out of pockets, gets trapped. The trap works well and needs to be checked periodically or if left unchecked it will probably be the cause of burning up the drain pump. 3. Once the water is drained you will need to use pliers to unsecure the two hoses attached to the drain pump. The pliers will pinch the wire clamps open and you can remove the hose easily. 4. The dryer is stacked on top of my washer and in order to get to the two screws holding the drain pump I needed to put a block of wood under the washer to give myself room to get a wrench to the screws. Once the dryer and washer were unloaded and nothing on top I was able to lift the washer and slide a block of wood underneath. 5. The pump has a power supply on the right hand side (a small white box with a wire attached) Remove the wire by gently pulling on the end of it. It is a plug type end. 6. Using a wrench (or socket driver) I took out the two screws (about an 1.5"). The drain pump slides to the right and out it comes. It is also secured by two rubber seals which are easy to remove as well as to install. 7. Now all you do is work backwards, installing the new drain pump by sliding the seals in place and wrenching the screws back in to hold the drain pump, followed by putting the two hoses back on with the pliers and placing the wire back into the power supply box on the drain. I would recommend anyone being able to do this on their own or at least with another person to help with a bit of lifting. The only way I knew to replace this part was because it was making all the noise, so it doesn't take much rocket science :)

Bad drum belt
Our whirlpool washer drum wasn't turning and there was a thunking noise from the machine when the drum should have been rotating.

I opened the top and back of the washer using a ratchet wrench. There were 4 screws holding on the top (at the top rear of the machine) and about 12 or more holding on the back panel. Removing these I could see the belt had become frayed, had come off of the drum, and was bunched around the motor drive wheel. The old belt was still usable, but clearly not going to last much longer so I purchased a new belt. The new belt was tighter than the old belt (which is good) and so took a fair amount of effort to get back onto the drum. I had to hold in place while turning the drum, something hard to do because of the braces on the back of the washer get in your way. But, I eventually got the belt propery seated. I then replaced the back and top panels. All appears to be working as it should.

Washer leaking - noticed large crack in the seam of the bellow
9 year old washer started leaking - after inspecting noticed a large hole in the bellow.
The only difficult part was putting the outside band clamp on over the bellow without it slipping out of place - took a few tries. The video was very helpful - I did put hardware into plastic bags based on the steps in the removal for so that I wouldn't forget (or get them mixed up).
I was able to do this project while home from work with a sick kindergartener. Problem started and did the removal the first day ordered the part and it arrived 2 days later - install complete in less than an hour. We went back to school/work with a operating washer by the end of the week! Thank you - it was actually kinda fun and my son bragged to his grandfather that 'he and momma fixed the washer'.

Scratches in Surface
This product comes in a bottle with a brush like Liquid Paper. It goes on incredibly easy. A second coat might be needed. I wanted to prevent rust from setting in so I covered the scratches and dings. The paint is a little brighter since my washer is 10 years old but it still looks great.

A wirre from an underwire bra punctured a hole in tub to pump hose. Water leaked out all over the floor.
I searched the internet for parts because we had just had a repairman out to fix the knocking noise in the washer drum. He found an underwire from a bra there and removed it. That cost about $100.

My husband took apart the bottom panel and showed me what the part looked like and I was able to find it on your website. I was able to order the parts and have my husband repair the washer so I was only without a washer for a week and a half. Thank you.

Water leak under machine caused by cracked drain pump
Turn of the electrical power to the machine. I took off the cover on the machine below the door. You had to use phillips screwdriver to get the three screws out. In order to replace the pump I had to lift the washing machine about three inches up slightly over to one side (needed a strong person to lift as there was a dryer on top of it). The old pump has to be removed with a nutdriver as there are two nuts holding the pump in place under the machine ( I had to run out to the hardware store to buy a smaller one to fit under the machine as the big wrench was to big to fit under the machine). I unplugged the electrical connection to the pump. I unclamped the hoses attached to the pump using a plier, make sure you have something to hold water that will drain from the hose. I then push/pull the old pump to the right out of its place, it is attached to the metal at the bottom of the machine. I put in the new pump and tighten the screws on the bottom (this is the tricky part as you cannot see - a mirror may help). I also reattached the hoses and electrical connection. I turned on the machine to rinse to make sure there were no leaks before putting back the cover. Before throwing out the old pump, you can shake it and look in the opening of the old pump for any valuables left in pockets that may have washed out. I found a 18k bracelet, 25 cents and a small screw which may have caused the hole in the pump . Good luck :)

I purchased the machine from a Scratch and Dent Place
The water pump housing was leaking due to some pre-existing damage and leaking on the floor. The repairman wanted 60.00 just to show up. I purchased a replacement pump from PartsSelect.com and installed it myself by taking off the bottom front panel (two screws on the bottom and unclamping the two hoses from the pump and the two screws holding the pump to the frame and then unsnapping the wiring coupler from the old pump. I pulled the old pump out through the front of the machine. I then installed the new pump and replaced the front cover. I saved myself a lot of money and everything went smoothly! The machine works great.

Locking the drum for moving
Remove the plastic caps from the rear of the machine. Insert the locking bolts into the slots. There is a clip on the bolts with a corresponding hole in the outside edge of the slots, this tells you exactly where to place the bolt. In my case i used a large flat head screw driver to move the drum into alignment with the bolt by inserting the driver into a different slot and prying the drum into place. When i had the first bolt started and about hald way in, i did the diagonly opposite bolt, got that one about half way in then did th elast two. i did not need to pry much on these two as the drum was no lined up fairly well with the bolts. I tightened them up and moved the washer. You do NOT need to call a maytag agent to come out and do this.
