The most difficult part was moving both the dryer and washer from the laundry room, into the garage. Be sure to unplug and turn off both hot and cold water, gas, and disconnect gas from the dryer before disconnecting hoses and dryer vent. I walked them out with the help of my sweet little wife. I got on utube to find a film on disassembly of the wm2277hs. This is vital because it comes apart like a chinese puzzle box. With the top panel removed, I hooked the garden hose up to the cold side and found the middle solenoid was leaking on the inlet valve. I decided to replace both hot and cold inlet valves along with the four hoses. The hoses had little cracks in them. It cost more but I expect it will save hassle down the road. After replacing the parts, I tested it all with the garden hose, then put it back in the laundry room. Final testing included looking for leaks and dish soap on the gas connection looking for a bubble. Suggest you pay for faster shipping. My stuff came in three separate shipments and took a week. It was about $85 bucks. Good luck.
Removed back, top, front. Disconnect water and drain lines. Remove electrical connections. Remove three shocks absorbers. Two springs at top then remove the whole drum. Unscrew plastic outer tub to get to SS tub. Spider is bolted to the back of drum with 6 bolts. Reverse the process.
We drained the water from the washer via the tiny hose/filter located at the lower left corner of the washing machine. The unit was then pulled away from the wall, unplugged and the hoses disconnected. At this time, we used the wet dry vacuum to suction the water that remained in the drain hose. We tilted the washing machine back until the front of the unit was 18 inches or so off the floor. We used the foot stool to hold the washer up in the air so that we could work on the pump. Replacing the pump was as easy as removing a few screws, unplugging the electrical connections and removing the faulty pump assembly from the plastic housing. (Be sure to mark what connector goes in what terminal). Re-assemble. Re-connect. You are ready to go. It took more time to ready the washer than it did to replace the part.
drain pump stopped working due to water in the case
ordered part from Part Select and it was here very quickly,but the part came damaged (not the fault of Part Select). I ordered another one and PartSelect had it here the next day. I watched the video on how to replace it and it was very helpfull.The particular part I replaced (pump motor) does not seem very durable. I will buy an American made washer the next time I need one. I will use Partselect in the future and recomend it to others.
Drain pump making noise and water wasn't being pumped out
I watched a video of how to replace the pump and it showed taking the top and front off to get to it. I actually found this could be done by removing the back panel from the washer. There were two hose clamps you have to squeeze and slide up and two wires going to the pump. There are three screws holding the pump that need to be removed from the front of the washer. Once these are removed all you have to do is push a tab down and the motor slide right out. The pump assembly can also be reached from the bottom of the washer.
Extremely easy--remove two screws in the back of washer connect elec. connections one at a time connect cold water lines one at a time and replace the two screws ion the back and you are done. Took longer to pull washer out from wall and push back than it did to replace part. Saved me $75.
Tipped the washer on its side to expose the bottom, removed the plastic lid adjacent to the pump after removing the screws holding it , then, using a flat head on a pry tab pulled out the pump, removed the hoses with pliers to complete the extraction, swapped the pump on my bench. . assembly is reverse of disassembly. .

All I did was google it on youtube and order the parts from this site which only took 2 days and tah dah .
Turn off hot water supply and activate a cycle on the washer momentarily, with hot water selected on front panel options to relieve hose pressure. Slide washer out to gain access to rear of unit. Unplug washer from AC source. Using pliers, remove washer supply hose from washer-side of the line (water may drain from hose) Remove single Phillips screw at bottom of each nylon lid holder at rear. Using a plastic putty knife, place between front panel and top lid to loosen lid and slide to rear. Remove lid and store aside. Hot and cold inlet valves sit side-by-side at top rear of the unit. Disconnect connector from valve by pulling gently away from valve plug prongs and place to the side. Using pliers, compress hose clamp and move to lower section of hose. Carefully rotate hose back and forth to remove from assembly. Inlet valve is held to washer body rear with 3 small Phillips screws. Remove first 2 and then while holding inlet valve body, remove final screw to free inlet valve assembly. Replace with new assembly by reversing these steps.Make certain when supply hose is reconnected, it is firmly tightened but DO NOT over tighten. Test washer by running a cycle to ensure there are no leaks.
Watched an online video and repair went has viewed. Took 2 hrs most of the time was cleaning the residue from back of tub. Suggest using power washer but a long bristle scrub brush, spray cleaner and jet spray from garden hose dose the job,
Unplug Washing machine first. Then remove 2 screws at the back of the top cover. Slide the top cover back then lift and remove. Unplug electrical connector @ inlet valve and remove water lines 1 going in and 1 out of valve. Remove 2 screws holding assembly in place then install new valve assembly and all other components in reverse order.
I had a slow leak coming from the factory cold inlet water valve assembly, and removed the top and found it rusted.
I removed the top off the washer, unplugged from the electrical, removed the three hoses and wiring plugs, removed the two screws holding the valve assembly in place, and replaced the part with the new. It was a very simple swap, and I even found a video on YouTube on how to replace it.
found a leak in the cold water inlet valve- one of the seat gaskets was bad
found a slow leak in one of the valve seat gaskets and decided to replace the entire valve (also did the hot inlet as well just in case). Unplugged unit, detached water hoses (replaced these as well), moved the washer out about 12" from the wall. With Phillips head removed the washer top. With pliers removed the hose clamps off the valve heading to the detergent dispenser (be sure to keep track of what hose goes to what nipple). Detached electric clip from each solenoid. Using Phillips head removed the valve. Use reverse order to install new valve. Ran the unit through a long cycle with the top off to ensure there were no leaks.
