Old pump not working.

When I received the replacement part, I was shocked at the small size compared to original equipment. I doubt the new part will last 12 years which is how long the original lasted. I installed it anyway because I did not want to wait for a better one from some other company. The new part was easy to install, but was not worth the price because it surely will not last.

This site and buying experience WOWED ME!!! After realizing what happened, I searched how to open up a washer, since I had never done it before. My search brought me to your site, which had an excellent 'how to' video for my exact problem of replacing the pump! I ordered the part, which was delivered to my door in LESS than 24 hours! Unfortunately, there was undrained water in the washing machine so while undoing the clamps on the old pump, the water drained on my kitchen floor, so beware of that issue. Because of the positioning of the pump, the clamps were a little tricky to redo, but completed without too much difficulty. I also had to 'unplug' (with a coat hanger snake)the drain tube connecting the pump to the back of the washing machine so it could flow to the outside drain pipe. This was the best internet buying experience I have ever had! Thank you so much! I fixed a 15 year old washing machine for about $40.00!!! (And I am a 57 year old grandmother ;-) Woohoo!!!

Washer wasn't agitating

We couldn't get a repair to come out - were told to buy a new because it would cost too much to fix. I did not agree. I pulled the agitator off and discovered it was not working and the agitator coupler was spinning. I ordered both and put them in myself. My washer now worked like new! All for less than $100. The service guy wouldn't eve come out for less than $175 and that did not include parts!

noisey, leaking water

  • Customer: Daren from Bloomington, IN
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Socket set, Wrench set

My repair started by reading the reviews on partselect.com that helped me to understand my problem and then described how I can fix it myself. My washer was making a loud noise and leaking water right above the transmition. So I figured a bad bearing was causing the noise and the failing tub seal caused the leaking water. This was fourth time taking the washer apart since I have replaced the motor, tub hub, and agitator cone over the years. So I was familiar with the dismantling process which made the job alittle quicker. This job was the most extensive diamantling yet because the outer tub had to be removed and turned over to remove the motor and trans assembly to access the tub seal. What was really helpful was the instructions I found behind the control panel explained step by step on how to remove the parts. Reassembled and started washer, was still alittle noisy because some rust had formed on the trans parts from the water leak on it, but after a few cycles that wore off and now it is like normal again.

Cold water would drip after laundry was finished

  • Customer: CHRISTOPHER from MURRIETA, CA
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers

Removed the four torx-head screws on the top of the washer. Pulled the control panel forward. Removed the four screws on the back of the washer and the two screws that held the dual valve on. These six screws required a nut driver. Pulled the small hose off the old valve. Then reversed the procedure. Total time to replace the faulty old part was about ten minutes. With saftey in mind, disconnect the electrical cord and shut the water valves off at the wall.

Washer would not pump out

Took the front cover off and tapped the motor on the old pump with the end of a screwdriver. The pump immediately started pumping,so, I knew it was the problem. Ordered the new pump and motor from PartSelect and received it in 2 days. Removed the old assembly and replaced it with the new one in less than 30 minutes per the video instructions on PartSelect's website. Wife is happy :) and I saved at least $100 bucks, probably more. Btw, a local appliance dealer where I bought the washer, wanted $63 for the pump/motor assembly and said it would take 4-5 days to get it. I paid $42 including shipping from PartSelect, and received it in 2 days!

We discovered water on the floor every time we washed clothes and hoped it wasn't the tub or something more structural. Luckily, it was just a busted drain hose. Went to the local home improvement stores and couldn't find the right part. Found PartSelect online and found it easily. From order to receipt took three days...from box to installation < 10 minutes.

Replaced pump. New pump same manufacturer and model, but better built; however, base plate not same, requiring that I swap it for the original. Also, pump suction inlet is straight-in, whereas original has 90 degree connection. Disconnect power, and remove old pump. Purchase a 1 1/2" I.D. auto radiator hose, cut off use the 90 degree bend; it's a perfect fit to pump conn.; use a 1" PVC coupling on other end socket to mate to the washer drum convoluted drain hose socket. Throw away the crappy original G.E. hard-to-use spring hose clamps and use stainless steel automotive type gear clamps instead. WARNING: Do not try to bend, stretch, or kink the rubber tub drain hose to fit up to the pump without installing an elbow; the installation geometry must be exactly the same as the factory-designed installation. To finish the job, power up and run the machine through several cycles with the front cover off to check for leaks. You will also see why the rubber drain hose must be reinstalled as described above. This washer does not ramp down speed when in the spin cycle, and when the motor stops, the drum makes a sudden 15 to 30 degree rotation, stretching the drain hose to it's limit. Finally, keep your hands out of the machine when it's running; the motor, belt, and transmission drive can cause some real damage if you get tangled up in them. Pay attention to what you are doing; if you are confused by my little dissertation, hire someone qualified to do the job for you.
