Had to pry it off. It took about 45 minutes to get it to come off. The reason it was so hard to get it off was that the shaft of the motor was pitted and rusted some. The new pump then wouldn't easily slide onto the shaft, so we had to use a file and sandpaper to make the shaft smooth. We then used WD-40 on the shaft and it went on rather easily, but was still plenty snug. We put the clips back on, the hoses back on and bingo, we fixed it and saved about $150.00. Neither myself or my husband had ever attempted to fix a washer or any large appliance before. Times are hard and we decided to try it on our own and were happy we did. No more leaking at all. It was a "high five" moment!!! Barbara Giles

If you have a leak on a TOP LOADER, the most common cause is a worn drain pump, leaking drain hoses or the hose to the air dome has come loose. You will need to remove the exterior case of the washer to be sure. DO NOT lay the washer on its back. The gearcase contains oil and it may leak through the breather hole.

Pump leaking. can i replace it by removing the hoses and the two clips that are holding it to the motor?


Yes, this is a very simple repair. The following link explains step-by-step how to replace the pump on a Kenmore top loader:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r397092-replacing_water_pump

I post this only to give you a reference to work from. If you've already figured out how to access the pump, great. Now all you need to do is remove the drain hoses and the two retaining clips that hold the pump in place.

NOTE: To minimize any mess, you may want to use a wet/dry shop vac to pull a vacuum on the drain line to remove any residual water that may remain in the drain line and tub.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this is helpful to you.

Kenmore 80's series top loader only works on wash and rinse cycle


This is a problem with the pump being stuck so the motor cant turn the whole thing. Turn the washer on its side, underneath you can acces the pump, which is connected to the motor by two long clips. remove the pump and take out the colg that caused it to get stuck.

Water is coming out of the bottom of the washing machine


Tip the machine back and remove the 2 clips holding on the drain pump. Remove the hoses. Then turn the pump over to where the motor shaft enters it. There will be signs of water leaking out of the pump. Your local parts store will have the pump instock.
