Product Description

Washing Machine Drain Pump Specifications

The drain pump and motor assembly may also be known as the washer drain pump and is a part for your washer. The drain pump helps expel water from the washing machine. The drain pump is activated after the spin cycle speed is maintained for a specific period of time. To make this installation you will need a Phillips screwdriver, a small flat-blade screwdriver, a pair of needle-nose pliers, and a pair of slip-joint pliers. Note that the pump casing is not included. This medium-difficulty repair may vary, but can generally be started by disconnecting power, then removing the top of the washer by taking out the four back screws and two small brackets. Then, remove the front panel by taking out the two screws and eight tabs that should be taken from the top. Moving down the front of the washer, remove the door, latch, tub gasket, and drain cover. Disconnect the drain hoses and clip from under the drain assembly, and install new assembly from there. Reassemble parts in direct reverse order -- taking photos during disassembly and keeping parts clearly organized can help here. Despite the number of steps, you will only need a standard Phillips screwdriver to complete this repair.

Puddle On The Floor
Had a puddle on the floor under the washing machine. While I couldn't definitively confirm the source of the leak, I suspect it was the drain pump. As such, I replaced the drain pump and the drain hoses (one of those 'while you're in there' things). The toughest part of the whole job was moving the washer away from the wall. I was able to leave the water hoses connected and just unplugged the electrical cord. Watched the YouTube video regarding the replacement and it was exactly what I needed. Just take your time and make sure everything fits together without force. In addition to the pump and the hoses, I had some drum shocks that I had previously purchased, but never installed. Replaced them at the same time. Everything fit together as expected and the washer works great. No leaks and reduced vibration. Good for another 15 years - hopefully.

Loud drain pump
Not too bad, had a neighbor help with the project as washer/dryer were stacked. removed dryer from on top out of way. Drained washer, tilted on side to get access from down below. Second person help here. unscrewed drain pump from front, Used pliers to unclamp hoses, disconnect wires to motor (already pulled power from wall) pushed plastic clip holding in unit and pulled out. New unit was factory new, not a knockoff. We took extra time to clean out hoses, especially from the main washer unit, it was a simple unscrew clamp and pull hose down. We sprayed out gunk from hoses and parts going back in. Once new unit was ready, installed back and reconnected hose and power. The clamps were somewhat of a pain with the overall size and angles to get them seated and on correctly. Much easier to take off, but take the time to reinstall correctly. Don’t need water leaking. Motor much quieter now, wife is happy.

Washer not pumping out and making ominous noises
Totally dis-assembled this washer to check the bearings and drum plus fix the pump problem. We wash dog blankets occasionally and found the little drain hose from the front door gasket was clogged with hair. It makes a 90 degree turn and it gets caught there. THAT fixed the smell issue. As far as the pump replacement goes its quite easy. Videos online are your friend.

I removed the drain pump motor assuming is was bad because of an oe error code and no obvious blockage. How can i be sure of the exact replacement part, it looks the same. And what about these after market parts; 1/3 the price. My washer has 2 pumps i focused on the drain motor, assuming the other would be ok. Any thoughts?
For model number WM0742HWA
PartSelect logo
Hi Arnie, Thank you for your question. There are three causes for the OE error code on your machine. Either there are blockages in your drain pump, your drain filter is clogged, or your drain hose is bent/blocked. I would suggest you check both your filter and hoses as well. I would not be able to comment on after market parts because we only deal in OEM parts. The second pump is just your circulation pump and does not have anything to do with your draining. It just makes sure that any suds inside of the drain tube leading from your drum get's cycled back into the cleaning process. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

Does this water pump work for my LG model, after trying to wash with my washer, the washer stops when spinning at around 7 minutes and shows oe. The water stays inside my washer and i’ve already checked the filter and everything seems fine. Also i hear a sound at the bottom of the washer before it stops.
For model number WM3370HWA
PartSelect logo
Hello Mario, thank you for your question. OE error code indicates that the washer is unable to drain the water it used during the wash cycle. OE can be triggered by a kinked drain hose or a clogged drain pump filter. If those have been checked you will want to replace the drain pump part number PartSelect Number PS3579318. Good luck with your repair!

Apparently i need to replace the drain pump motor, so i have watched the video to see exactly what i am getting into with this repair. Since i will have to open her up to do the job, is there any other parts you would suggest replacing in the spirit of keeping good maintenance on the machine... kind of like a tune-up package? i was thinking about the door boot, mine is kind of moldy but works just fine. any thoughts?
For model number WM2075CW

Hello Chad, Thank you for the question. We do not carry a kit sorry but you can check the springs for the drum, Part Number: PS3524574, the gasket Part Number: PS3522859, Shocks Part Number: PS3522309 and the door gasket Part Number: PS3524977 as these are the most commonly sold part due to wear. Hope this helps!

We had an error code come up saying that the drain screen ro drain hose may be blocked. We have had this before and it was no big deal to clear the screen. However, this time, the screen was clean and rather than removing the drain hose, thought to blow it out to see if there was a blockage. Nothing blocking, air passed through fine. Put the machine back together, ran a rinse and spin cycle and it performed fine. Ran the next load of laundry and it again came up with a code saying it could not drain again. ***note, the drain motor was pretty loud while running after i had already drained the tub when checking for blockages. Possibly because there was no water to pump? Not sure where to go from here.....new pump? your advice would be greatly appreciated.
For model number WM2688HNM

Hello Peter, Thank you for your inquiry. I would advise checking the drain pump to see if it has any clogs and test it with a multimeter to see if it has continuity. If you are unfamiliar with how a multimeter functions, there are YouTube videos available to assist you. Hope this helps!

My LG washer will leak water on to the floor anytime we do a light load of cloths. There is no apparent leaking while doing medium or heavy loads. The puddle of water forms under the area where the drain pump/filter is located.
For model number WM2301HW
PartSelect logo
Hello Donovan, thank you for your question. If the unit is leaking around the drain pump/filter area, we would recommend checking the filter to be sure its not clogged, as well as the hoses that lead to and from the drain pump. with the access panel removed, run a small load and watch to see if you can notice exactly where the leak is coming from. It might be from a hose, or the drain pump itself. If those parts are not leaking, check to see if the water is leaking down from the dispenser or the water valve and dripping down to the bottom of the unit. I hope this helps!

Further question. I started the washer as you suggested, pulled the plug and the water stopped coming in. Not clear from your previous response if this means a defective water inlet valve (hot or cold, response is the same). Or if it is the pressure switch. Thanks
For model number MW2016CW
PartSelect logo
Hello Gert, thank you for your question. If the water stopped coming in when power was removed from the unit the valves are working. I would recommend testing/replacing the pressure switch and the pressure hose.

Hi Cuata, Thank you for the question. If the washer is not going through the cycles you will need to replace the Timer Switch. Sadly, we do not have any information on the model number you provided. Could you please verify the number you provided us with? If it is correct, and resubmit the question and we will be happy to locate the part needed. Look forward to hearing from you!
