Question:

My hubby noticed water leaking from the bottom of our washer so we left it running and peaked under the bottom and it was coming out of the pump (part # WP3363394). Can I be sure that that’s the problem and not a leaky hose or line somewhere since we clearly see the water leaking from the pump?

Mel

Question:

Changed the pump 2x and both times it gone bad. Second time I paid but first time was covered. Both times tho the pump froze to the motor shaft. How do I stop this from happening replacing it the third time. I had to cut the pump off with a saw last time.

Lee
Answer:

Hello Lee, the reason this happens is water is leaking and causing the motor shaft to rust. This will then cause the rust to pile on and expand, sticking the pump to the motor shaft. If you would like to prevent this situation we recommend sanding down the motor shaft until all rust is gone, and then apply grease to the motor shaft. This will prevent rust from coming back and lingering. Best of luck with this repair!

Question:

Washer fills very slow (no pressure) water just dribbles into tub.

James for model number LSW9700PQ2
Answer:

Hi James, That is a great question thank you. I would suggest checking the fill hoses to make sure there is nothing built up and blocking them. Also check the valve where the hose connects to the back of the washer and clean out the screens to make sure there is no blockage there. If everything is clean and clear you may need to replace the water valve part number PS11742194. This water inlet valve attaches the water lines to the back of your appliance. The attaching solenoids on the valve open and close according to the desired temperature, or amount of water needed. If it is not opening properly you might have a slow flow of water. Hope this helps!

Question:

Washer fill only part way with water then agitates. My wife has to trick it by turning the knob to start again 2 or 3 times until it is full enough to wash the clothes then the washer runs normally.

Brent for model number 11029822801
Answer:

Hi Brent, Thank you for the question. I suggest replacing the timer. The timer controls most of the operations of the washer: water level, tub filling and emptying, length of cycles, and cycle setting sequences. Also if she can turn the knob to trick it then the it sounds like it is not going through the timer cycles like it should. Hope this helps!

Question:

I have a Whirlpool washer and a sock got stuck in the pump. I removed the sock from the pump but it will still not drain. The drum spins fine and the pump visually looks and moves freely with my fingers. Could the sock that jammed the pump have burned out the motor? Is there anyway to test the motor?

Pete for model number 2dlsq7533jq
Answer:

Hi Pete, Thank you for the question, If the tub is spinning then the motor should be fine. Sounds like it may have to replace the pump assembly. The sock could have damaged some internal parts. Hope this helps!

Question:

Kenmore washer/dryer combo. The tub will not fill because all water is leaking inside at the hot/cold water inlet valves. Is there a pump at this connection?

TYRONE for model number CS3259994
Answer:

Hi Tyrone, Thank you for your inquiry. If the washer is not filling with water you will need to check the inlet hoses and screens, the water inlet valve, the lid switch, the selector switch, the water temperature switch, the water level pressure switch and the timer. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Question:

My Whirlpool washer is leaking from the bottom near the pump while draining. At a quick glance, the hoses look good. There is major rust and corrosion around the front clamp (i can't see the back clamp without tipping it over). And there is moisture around the entire clamp after running a load. Should i assume the pump needs replacing or could the moisture be coming from a source dripping down from above? There is no leaking during fill. Thank you.

Michelle for model number LSR8444LQ0
Answer:

Hi Michelle, Thank you for contacting us. It does sound like it is your pump that is the issue, but your water inlet valve is located at the top of your machine. If you wanted to check that part to make sure that it is not the part that is leaking, I could suggest doing that. I hope this helps. Good luck with your repair.

Hi Signora, Thank you for your inquiry. It could be your timer, but I would actually have you check your drain pump. It sounds like something may have gotten stuck inside the drain pump and burned up the motor. Good luck, I hope this helps!

Water pump leaking when machine used.

The hardest part of this job was pulling the machine away from the wall so the hoses could be disconnected and the machine flipped onto it's back. Putting the machine on it's back does two things. It drains the water left in the bottom of the tub so it won't pour out onto the motor when the old pump is removed, and gives the necessary access to the pump. Once the machine is on it's back you remove the hose clamps with a pair of pliers and disconnect the hoses. The pump is secured to the motor with a pair of spring steel retaining clips which are easily popped off by hand. Once the clips are removed, the pump is in your hand. Put the new pump in place, replace the retaining clips and hoses, and you're done. This has to have been the easiest repair I've ever done. I wish cleaning gutters was this easy.

Washer made a loud banging noise at end of spin cycle, leaked water and agitator seemed loose

After entering the model number of your appliance you will be taken to a page where all of the parts are displayed by sections. On that page about in the middle there is a heading called "Find Part By Symptom." I figured out from there which symptom the washer had and read what other people were saying and how they made the repairs. Basically I had three problem areas, Noise, Leaking and a problem with the agitator. I focused on the loud noise first and decided I needed to replace the clutch/brake assemblies. I found the clutch parts page and on that page there was a video on how to make this repair. This video is all you need to gain access to all moving parts located under the cabinet. Which ever part you are replacing, I recommend watching this video! After removing the console, back panel and cabinet then laying the machine on its back just as seen on the video, I had access to the water pump, motor, transmission and related clutch/brake parts. As it turned out I did not need the clutch/brake assembly but as a precaution and because the parts were cheap, I replaced the motor coupling, water pump and tub wear pads. I decided to replace the agitator assembly because of several worn parts associated with the dog ears/drive shaft ETC. I put the machine back upright and took off the top cap on the agitator, then there is an inner cap with seal that gives access to the 7/16" bolt you must remove to remove the agitator. However once the agitator was removed I noticed metal shavings and play in the shaft. I used a spanner wrench to remove the spanner nut. I removed the Plastic Tub Ring (has several clips around the outer tub), then removed the inner washer tub to replace the Drive Block. Replacing the Drive Block stopped the loud noise at the end of the spin cycle. Now just reverse the order to put the machine back together and your done. For my situation it was best to take the machine apart and decide which parts I needed before ordering to minimize errors. These machines are made very cheaply and are designed to brake at some point in time and it is very easy to determine which parts are worn because most are made of plastic. In this process I also noticed where my leaks (did I say Leaks) were coming from. There were two hose clamps installed improperly from the factory, so check all clamps, hoses ETC. and you should be good to go.

Water leaking on floor

I removed the two spring clips that hold the pump and two wire spring clips that hold the hoses. Then I had to pry the pump off the shaft (it was frozen with rust). Then I cleaned the shaft with sandpaper and installed the new pump (which, by the way, came the next day, thank you very much) which made my wife very happy, and I thank you for that , too.

Bad water pump

We received the part we needed in a timely manner. First we took the back off the washer and found out later we didn't have to, because you can access the pump from the bottom of the Whirlpool washer and when we turned it on it's back a brass colored pin about 2" long fell out and we have no idea where it goes.Looking around the bottom frame we saw another pin in a plastic little cup mounted to the frame and another empty cup .So we changed the pump easy,put the pin in the empty cup and the washer runs great! That's our story.Still don't know what the pin is for,it's not on the parts schematic.

Broken pump and burned out motor

The repair itself was very simply, probably largely due to the design of the machine which made getting to, and replacing the two faulty parts a cinch. Just unscrew the two screws on the motor brackets which hold the motor down, and remove the brackets. Then remove the two smaller brackets which hold the pump to the motor. Then remove the two clamps and hoses from the pump. Lastly disconnect the power supply from the motor and the pump and motor will then come out as one unit. Simply reverse the process when reinstalling the new pump and motor. I used a bit of oil to lubricate the new motor shaft but I am sure it probably isn't necessary. The job should take no more than half an hour tops.

Leak from the front, bottom edge

First I watched the vid, from this website that showed how to replace a pump on the Whirlpool model I have. It was very helpful. Then, on the same web page as the vid for washer pump replacement several DIYers describe how they did the repair and rate how difficult it was. This also was very helpful. The info from these two sources confirmed to me that it was the pump that was leaking. Tilting the washer back far enough so I could see the pump also visually confirmed it was the pump.
If the pump had come off easily I would not have had to take the cabinet off. All I would have had to do was lay the washer on its' back to get the pump off. But noooo, the pump was rusted so tightly to the motors' shaft that I had to be more aggressive, to remove the pump, than the measures mentioned in the vid.
After finally getting the pump off I saw that the end of the motors' shaft had corroded and was misshapened enough so that I had to "persuade" the new pump onto the shaft.
I also ordered these parts (1. Direct Drive Coupling 2. Agitator Repair Kit and 3. Clutch Assembly) after I read in the DIYers descriptions that many of them, who changed their pump, also changed these parts. Since my washer was 15 yrs old it made sense to replace these parts which usually wear out before the pump.
Unfortunately, after I got everything reassembled the new pump leaked more than the old one. Guess I over-"persuaded" the new pump onto the shaft. That, and I don't think the new pump is as well built as the original so it couldn't take much persuasion.
Now I either: 1. buy a new pump and motor or 2. buy a new washer which is what I'll most likely do.
If I had a do-over I would only get the pump. If it worked properly with no leaks, then I would buy the other 3 parts, if it didn't work, I would only be out $40 instead of the $95 I'm out for the 4 items. Being frugal or, as my family says, "cheap," I do have to be careful. There is a point where repairing something old is more a point of pride than good sense. I don't know where that point is and I definitely wouldn't have brought this up if the new pump had fixed the washer.
Also, after struggling for quite some time to put the cabinet back on, I Googled "how do I get a Whirlpool washer cabinet back on?" After watching one of the vids Google answered back-I was able to put the cabinet back on in less than 10 minutes.
I hope this has been helpful. Happy DIYing!

Washing machine leaking water

First, I'm glad I found PartSelect. The previous posts for this repair told me exactly how to replace the pump: I unplugged the washer and moved it out away from the wall (did not need to disconnect water hoses). Then I tilted the washer back and propped it up so I could get underneath. Using pliers, slid hose clamps back and disconnected hoses from pump. Using a screwdriver, popped off two clips, top and bottom, that hold the pump in place. Pump then slides right off the shaft. Installation is the reverse. Make sure you align the shaft with the pump. Delivery of my part was FAST - ordered it and got it the next day!

Water was leaking at the pump

Actually this is kinda funny. I ordered the part and it arrived when I was out of town on business. My 20 year old daughter tipped the washer up on its end, and replaced the pump herself in less than 30 minutes. Her only complaint was that no one told her to block the washer up as it almost fell on her.

Leaking drain pump. Obviously a common problem with this washer

Just turned the washer on its side, popped out the two retainer clips with pliers and screwdriver, pulled the pump out by hand, put the new one in and replaced one rusty clip with the new one from parts select, and used the other old one. I ordered the parts on Monday, and they came tuesday, even with the standard shipping. Also the website parts diagram and whole website design is good.
