This is tough sometimes. Just start it one one side (opposite the spring), and try to "walk" it around with a pair of screwdrivers. It gets frustrating at times but it will go.

Drain pump not draining water

You will need to check the drain filter for obstuctions, bra wires,coins hair cilps etc. You will need a low tray to catch the water, there is a front flap that pulls open on the bottom front corner of machine. Find the small black rubber tube with a white stopper, unclip and gentally pull it out of machine, unplug and drain water into tray, this will take some time unless you can move the machine outside to drain,that means removing the knob next to the rubber tube, unscrew. anti clock wise, watch out for a flood of water . if something is jammed you may have too pull on the knob . Only goes back in one way. Reverse to put back together.

remove bottom cover at back of machine, loosen large jubilee clip on hose between drum and pump. pull hose down and off, take out strainer basket and pull top off, clean top, ball and basket by running under tap. clean out hose with an old rag. reassemble strainer and put back into hose, in the correct position. fix hose back on to drum and tighten clip. run machine on a hot wash and all should be fine.

My washing machine won't agitate, won't spin, won't drain, and smells like burnt rubber. I had tried to wash my dogs bed; it got ripped up. I took off the front of the washer and found a lot of cotton...

Well....Your problem isn't over, you still need to take off a hose and remove the cotton from around the impellar inside the pump. you can do this with your fingers or a needle nose plyers.

Washing machine stopped working and smells like burt rubber

Sorry about that I did not notice the word "Belt" in the paragraph. The belt may be slipping. Even though it looks fine it may not be. You can normally tell if you're able to access the belt right after running it, turn off the washer and unplug it. Feel the belt or the idler pulley it's attached to. Quickly though because it may be very hot! If it is then chances are that you need a new belt. Overloading a washer from time to time can wear out the portion of the belt that contacts the pulley causing it to slip.

Large rubber door seal came apart

Yes it can be put back on without taking the drum apart. The larger end goes on the drum side. Fit larger end around drum lip make sure it seals all the way around, install spring around seal. Smaller end goes around door opening. Install seal around outter lip and install spring around seal.

i use a pair of needle nose vice grip pliers, to hold one side ofthe wire and pull with a nother set connected to the spring, the trick(pain in the a***) is to lean over the machine, or even better ifyou can ge to the side of the machine this allows you to pull straighter, infront of machine you tend to "pull" foward thus poppping off!!!
