Yes, you can remove it, but it takes a lot of work to remove. You have to remove the top, the console and control panels, and the door boot. The boot is somewhat simple to remove, but pretty difficult (and on some models, impossible without special tools) to get back on. Its a pretty tough job to do. Try this, remove the top of the unit (a couple of screws in the back) and see if you can repair from above, if its below, try to reach from access hole at the bottom.

My LG WM2455 has water leaking from lower front near the front access door. I have checked the catch basin and drained the tube but still get leakage after the next load. What could the problem be?


If the washer is leaking water the drain pump might have a hole or crack. Or, the bearings might be worn out. Replace the drain pump if it is leaking water, they're not repairable.
Check the condition of the drain hose that connects the tub to the pump.

My LTE5243D top load stacked washer is about 10 years old. How do you take the front panel off to access the washer's motor coupling?


To gain access to the washer components, the front panel between washer and dryer must be removed first.
Remove the two top screws securing thethis panel to the unit.Tilt the transition panel down and pull itstraight out.Remove the two screws located behind the washer top.Pull the washer top forward to disengage the top locks. Disconnect the washer lid switch harness. Lift the washer top off the unit.Remove the two screws from inside the top of the washer front panel.Lift up on the front panel to release the catches near the bottom of the panel andremove the front panel.

Frigidaire gltf2940fs front loading washing machine is not running the spin cycle. What are some possible reasons?


I just fixed mine TODAY. here is the deal. The hose MAY be clogged, true. But there is a second hose with a filter inside the machine. You remove the lower front panel (there are just 2 screws near the floor holding it on) and look for a wide black hose with accordian like folds that is coming from the drum. unscrew the hose clamp and reach in (this will be gross) and pull out the (almost guaranteed to be clogged) filter. then reassemble:)
I was told that i needed a new pump. they were gonna charge me 250 for the whole repair. I am so glad that my friend came over and did this for me for free. The pump is FINE. I am doing laundry as I type this:)

DOES ANYONE KNOW WHERE i GET GET INSTRUCTIONS ON REPLACEING THE PRESSURE SWITCH ON MY KENMORE WASHER


If this is a FRONT LOADER, just follow these simple steps:

1. UNPLUG the washer.

2. Remove the top panel of the washer by locating and removing the three screws that hold the panel in place in the rear of the washer. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, then lift off.

3. The pressure switch is located on the right hand side rear of the washer (as viewed from the front). Disconnect the connector plug and air hose.

4. Remove the mounting screw (if equipped). Some of this switches simply clip in place.

If this is a TOP LOADER, the pressure switch will be located inside the operator console behind the load level selector knob. Some of these consoles have a removeable back, others you have to lift up for access.

If you have any questions about this repair, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Noisey during spin


yes you are right noise during spin cycle is due to faulty bearing. If the tub seal lets go water will weep into the tub bearing. This will rust the basket shaft and normally wreck the tub bearing. Once the bearings starts to get worn enough it usually gets very noisy. The tub bearing is pressed onto the outer back half of the tub shell assembly. Normally need to replace the inner basket/shaft assembly  and the outer shell with the tub bearing. 
Sometimes the inner basket support will crack, this can give an clicking or banging noise as well.
 
Pictures of this job...
A sure indication was the brown junk/gookus leaking out if the rear bearing area and the belt has spewed it around in the drum that the rear bearing and seal was bad...
Picture1 - Picture2
The whole outer shell and basket come out to do this repair....what bad bearing and rusted shaft looked like...
Picture1 - Picture2 - Picture3
I had to remove the back panel. Undo the pump hose & water level hose, remove the 2 shocks, remove the motor, undo the front boot from the outer panel and remove the 2 springs to lift the whole assembly out from the back to work on it.
Picture1 ( boot pushed inside ) Help page1 - Help page2
It leaks Your washer can develop several types of leaks. You can track down a leak based on when it occurs: 

During fill only
During drain and spin only
All the time
During fill only If the washer leaks only during the fill cycle, check these:

  • Air-gap device -The air gap is a small device found on most washers that prevents the wash water from being siphoned into the household water supply. It's located either mid-way along or at the end of the black rubber hose that comes from the water-inlet valve. Often it's made of translucent plastic. If one of the air-gap components deforms or cracks, you may need to replace it.


  • The tube -There's a rubber tube that runs between the water-inlet valve and either the air-gap or the inlet spout. If it cracks or breaks, it can cause a leak.


  • Inlet spout -Most washers have a plastic spout near the top of the main clothes tub that directs the water into the tub. If the spout cracks or breaks free of its mounting, it can cause a leak.


During drain and spin only A washer that leaks only during the spin cycle often has a leak in the main drain hose. Inspect the entire hose and correct any problem you find. Alternatively, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. This may be most visible during large loads and high water levels. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details. 

All the time If the washer leaks all the time, check these:

  • Hot and cold water fill hoses - Check the hot and cold water hoses from the household plumbing. If either hose is leaking, tighten it or replace it, as appropriate.


  • Main tub seal - The main tub seal is located between the transmission and the outer tub. It's the primary water seal in the outer tub for the transmission-shaft entry point. If this seal leaks, you can see the leak by opening up the machine's main access panel while the machine is full of water with a small amount of detergent in it. The leak appears at the underside of the outer tub, at or near the center. This seal is difficult to replace. You probably should call a qualified appliance repair technician.


  • Pump - If the pump leaks, you can probably spot the leak when the tub is full of water. The pump has two or more black rubber or plastic hoses attached to it and usually has a drive belt that spins the pump. If the pump is leaking, you need to replace it.


  • Outer tub - Over time, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details.

Lg front load washer leaking from bottom of machine


I just fixed this problem - there is a rubber hose that hooks the bottom of the drum to the drain and recycle pumps - it is ribbed and it developed a hole. To confirm and repair (repair can be done from the front of the machine)
  1. Unplug the machine.
  2. Drain whatever water you can from the machine using the stoppered hose behind the bottom left panel
  3. Unscrew the visible screw holding the plastic in place near the drain hose and filter
  4. If you can pull the plastic recessed piece out, there is one screw visible behind it - unswcrew this. If you cannot pull it out now, you should be able to get it after you remove the screws in step 10
  5. Pull out the detergent drawer (push in the middle back "botton" to release the drawer to pull out fully)
  6. Unscrew two screws in the drawer area.
  7. Pull the top of the electronics assembly away from the machine and lift the assembly out (place on top of the machine or hook it out of the way)
  8. Open the door and remove the spring loaded wire around the door seal (be careful as the seal can be torn)
  9. Pull the seal away from the metal front panel, then close the door
  10. Remove four screws at the top of the front panel (that were behind the eletronics assembly) - If you already have removed the screw from step 4, proceed, otherwise lean the top of front panel out and pop the plastic out, hold panel in place and remove that bottom screw from step 4.
  11. Lift front panel about two inches, swing the entire front panel to the right and set against something - You should now be able to see inside the machine.
  12. There is a black hose right in the middle - when I squeezed mine a little, I could see where the water was dripping out from the bottom.
  13. There are three clamps - two that can be squeezed with pliers and removed, one that has to be unscrewed (phillips head screw - it is a bit blind as the screw faces the back of the machine) - Once I got mine off - I could see the hole.
  14. Order replacement and reassmble in the opposite order
