Yes replacing the pump is not a difficult job to do. The only problem with the pump is with the solenoid and pump blockages. The water pump is very easy to dismantle and reassemble. The motor is a very simple squirel cage motor with bronze sleeve bearings. The armature should turn freely by your finger, sometime the bearings do gum up which can be easily fixed by oiling. if you have a jam up in the pump, this can destroy your main board. The symptoms will be that you may find the blockage and fix the pump but it will no longer work. You may have to replace the seals to the pump. Generally speaking if you have faulty agitator main seals, you will have black/brown oily water deposited under the main motor.
If you mean its leaking anytime you have water in the drum,the first thing to check is the drain hose connection at the back of the washer,You'll want to do this with the washer pulled out,(don't let the drain hose drop below the water level or you'll have a mess)If its not leaking there you should be able to look under the washer & see which connection it is(usually the inlet to the pump) Might be as simple as tightening the hose clamps.Hope this helps
I have same problem right now. The machine works fine up to the stage where it needs to pump out. the pump was dead. Have replaced the pump, but still not working and it's probably the PCB that needs replacing - expensive but will buy reconditioned for about £50.
Pump available for the machine on Ebay and easy to replace. Take of machine back panel - make sure machine off and unplugged. Pump has 3 screws holding it in - then just replace. Easy. Good luck
Are you sure the pump is working, or it the motor thats running? If the pump is truly working, there is a clog in pump or line. If the motor is working, but the pump is not, you will need to replace. You can usually buy a replacement pump for the washing machine for around $50. They are usually easy to install for a beginner DYI. Make sure you know the easiest way to remove washing machine housing to get at pump and motor. Unplug entire unit. Remove 2 hoses for pump and either screws or brackets to remove housing. BTW if the washing machine won't drain, you are going to have a bunch of water that gravity wants to dump out of machine. Bring pump to parts dealer for exact match.
I WISH I HAD SOME ANSWERS ON THIS ONE, BUT IT SOUNDS LIKE YOUR PUMP MIGHT NEED REPLACING. HOW OLD IS YOUR WASHER? IT WOULD BE CHEAPER TO BUY A NEW WASHER. BUT IF IT IS THE PUMP, THEN YOU CAN BUY A NEW PUMP FROM WHERE YOU BOUGHT YOUR WASHER. GOOD LUCK.
i had the same problem. the motor wore out the teflon drive shaft on the pump. you have to buy a new pump, which, the replacement part comes with the motor and pump. after u find the part u need, i looked up the replacement part number on ebay and found it for 75bucks all together. the pump and motor work just fine now.
the agitator can be removed easily, remove the center fabric softener cup and down the center of the agitiator shaft is a wing nout you can remove by hand, simply remove agitator and replace with a new one. call F&P for the replacemnt part
