How do I replace the pump in my front load washing machine

My front loader stopped spinning and draining right before we moved out of state. I had a repairman come and drain it since we didn't have time to wait for the part to get it fixed. He told me that I could easily replace the part myself, that there are only two screws to remove. But I want to make sure I do it correctly. Can you tell me how to do it please? Thank you!

    After reading through recommended posts in FixYa I began to have doubts that the problem with my washer was the pump, even after a "trained and experienced" repairman told me that was the issue. I read several other posts with the same symptoms as my machine and found out that it's actually a faulty door switch. I have ordered the part and hope to have it fixed soon. Thanks for the help!

SOURCE: Frigidaire front load washer (LTF600ES1) Error E20

holla, Im not showing a E20 code on the tech sheet. There is a E21. Water not draining fast enough. Try holding the start/pause and cancel key together for 3 seconds. The door lock, wash, rinse and final spin leds should light. Any error codes should be displayed when holding those keys. If you see a different error code, post it. If not, I would suspect a clogged pump...Catriver.

SOURCE: Need to remove the front panel of front load washer

you will have to remove the rear panel in order to remove the front panel. The bolt and clamp are inside the front panel.

Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on what you've described,...you likely need a door lock/switch assembly.

The door latch is likely the single most common fault (which prevent's any spin, and consequently drenching wet clothing at the end of the cycle) with the frigidaire/electrolux built washer's, aside from pump's being obstructed.

I think it fool's many people because the lock indicates it is energized on the panel, however the built in "monitor" switch inside the assembly fail's. I do see a lot of these particular machine's...unfortunately.

You should be able to purchase one at most local brick & mortar stores or on-line part's depot's such as "searspartsdirect.com" "repairclininc.com" to name a couple. They usually sell for about $50 or so, part # 1531974 ( # at repairclinic.com ) and are relatively easy to replace. It should resemble the image here...

As for replacing said switch, There are a couple ways to access it, through the top and squeezing your arm down the front or the way I prefer, remove the front bellows spring/retainer.

1) **unplug the washer from the wall...safety first of course.**

2) Remove the spring, get it started where the spring is located with a small screwdriver. Once you`ve got the spring/retainer off ( it comes off and on pretty easy by hand ) pull the gasket/bellows back away from the cabinet.

3) Undo the two screws holding the switch to the cabinet, pull the switch out ( there is just enough slack in the wires so don`t pull too hard ) and swap the wires from the old assembly to the new one and you`re in business.

4) To put it back together, just reverse the removal procedure. The trickiest part is the retainer. Rap the retainer around the boot leaving the spring for the last...and make sure the spring is located at the 6 o`clock position...usually. Just wherever it was initially.

Let me know if you need further assistance going forward or if my instructions are not clear.

P.S.
There is a slim chance of a faulty motor or motor control board, but that would not be where I would direct you to start...those are exceptions rather than the rule.


Thank you for visiting FixYa today. Good luck.

Regards,


Macmarkus :)

It is not spinning now.


Depending on the make and model top loader or front loader, the most common issues are the lid switch or door lock safety interlock, or the pump filter is clogged and need cleaned. Let me know what machine you have and I can go from there.

Frigidaire top loader washer won't drain


Hi,

The timer has went bad in your front load washer.Thats the reason why the unit is not draining properly. If you move the timer manually to spin will it pump the water out? if it works that way then the timer is bad for sure. You should go for a replacement.
Thank you !!
