Instructions1 Unplug the electrical cord of the washing machine from the electrical outlet before attempting to repair the water pump. 2 Turn the water supply off at the shut-off valves behind the washing machine by hand. 3 Press in on the end caps of the washer while pulling forward to remove the caps from the control console and locate the screws in the front of the console on each end. 4 Unfasten the screws on the control console with a screwdriver and flip the console back so that it rests on the rear hinges. 5 Unplug the lid switch connector from the top of the dryer near the back, lifting the plug off the metal prongs by hand. Use a screwdriver to pry up the metal clips that are holding the top on the dryer. 6 Lift the top lid off the washer base, set the top out of the way, and locate the water pump at the bottom of the cabinet on the motor shaft. 7 Slide the metal clips off the top of the water pump with a screwdriver and remove the pump from the motor shaft. 8 Place a plastic container underneath the water pump to catch any water from the pump and detach the hoses, unfastening the clamps with a screwdriver. 9 Remove the hoses from the pump, allowing the excess water to drain into the plastic container, and remove the pump from the washing machine. 10 Attach the hoses to the new water pump, securing the clamps with a screwdriver. Place the new pump on the motor shaft, sliding the metal clips back over the pump. 11 Take the plastic container out of the washer cabinet, disposing of the water. Place the top lid of the washer back over the cabinet, securing it with the metal clips on the top. 12 Plug the lid switch connector back into the top of the washer near the back, attaching the connector by hand. Flip the control console back down over the washer, securing the console with screws on the ends. 13 Fasten the end caps back over the control console by hand and turn the water supply back on at the shut-off valves. 14 Plug the electrical cord of the washer into the electrical outlet.

The parts' arrangement is similar to several Whirlpool model. The pump motor is located under the bottom place and it is accessed removing the front kick panel (in front at the bottom).
Here a movie showing the procedure on a Whirlpool similar to your Blanco. I also tried to describe the procedure below. Check also the parts diagram for your model at the end of this comment. Sometimes it is not necessary to lean the appliance on one side, depending on how you can reach pump motor and hoses. See movie and description.
To remove the old motor you need to:
Move appliance forward.
Disconnect drain and inlet hoses and remove water from tub (if any).
Remove baskets or anything else from inside the machine.
Remove spray arms and remove the assembly at the bottom of the machine.
Put some clothes or towels on floor and lean the machine on one side.Water will leak out, the clothes will help here.
Take the kick panel in front off.
Undo the screws that hold the pump to the machine cabinet.
Use a flat screwdriver to loose the clip holding the hoses. Loose the clip but do not open it completely (it will help later).
Pull off the two hoses.
Disconnect the electrical connector to the pump
Lift the pump motor and pull it out from cabinet.
To put in new pump.
Insert the two hoses on new pump.
Set the clips.
Put the pump motor in place inside the cabinet.
Arrange hose and pump motor correctly and put screws back.
Reconnect the wiring connector.
Lift up the appliance.
Put back spray arms and internal assembly.
Before putting on the front panel:
Connect power and test for leaks.
Disconnect power and fix any leak present (adjust hoses).
If there is no leak put panel back.
Set back the appliance and connect power.
Always observe strictly health and safety prescription. Disconnect power before performing any maintenance. Beware of panel's sharp edges, particularly when removing kick panel and accessing parts in the tight space under the bottom of the tub.
the drain pump on the motor is leaking,you need to remove control panel,then under the panel there will be 2 brass colored clips,unsnap these and remove them,then the whole cabinet will tip toward you remove the cabinet off the cleats and set aside,the pump will be at the base of the machine in front of the motor,there are 2 clips holding the pump on remove these and the hoses to replace pump,they leak around the motor shaft seal and leak when pumping out
The drain hose is plugged or kinked or the drain pump is not working. Check and clear the drain hose from any debris that might be causing the water not to be pumped out. After checking and clearing the drain hose and the water is still not pumped out of the washer, check the pump to see if the impeller is good or the pump needs to be replaced. Access to the pump requires the top cover and the front panel to be removed. Disconnect power to the washer prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock.
The top cover is attached to the front panel by two clips positioned at about 3 inches from the corners. Use a putty knife and insert the blade into the seam between the top cover and the front panel assembly at the position of the clips.
Push the putty knife blade against the clips, one side at a time while lifting the cover to disengage the clips. Lift the top cover off the front panel then remove the two screws securing the front panel to the upper front corner braces of the cabinet.
Lean the top edge of the front panel away from the cabinet and lift the panel to disengage its bottom from the base clips. Move the front panel away from the cabinet to access the pump.
Disconnect the pump inlet and outlet hoses from the pump then remove the three screws mounting the pump assembly to the base of the washer.
Slide the pump to the rear of the washer to disengage the belt from the pump pulley and pull the pump assembly out of the washer.
Clear the pump inlet and outlet hoses for any debris to ensure water is not blocked from being pumped out of the washer.
Check the impeller. Remove the four screws securing the pump housing to the pump base then lift the housing off the base. Clean the impeller and the pump housing; replace the pump assembly if the impeller is damaged.
To replace the pump, set the pump pulley into the base opening and put the belt on the pulley. Install the mounting screws while holding tension on the belt to keep it on the pulleys.
Connect the pump inlet and outlet hoses and secure it with the clamps.
Position the bottom of the front panel back into the base clips then secure the top to the upper front corner braces of the cabinet with the two securing screws.
Push the top cover down into position to the front panel to complete the procedure.
Note: For Maytag Atlantis MAV8000A, the pump assembly is part number 35-6465.
Remove two screws at the front bottom ends of the control panel and tilt it back to expose two large brass color clips that hold the cabinet in place. Disconnect the lid switch wiring at the plug. Remove the clips and lift/slide the cabinet forward to remove it. The water pump is at the bottom of the "motor stack" and slips onto the motor shaft. You should be able to see water drip marks from the shaft bearing if the pump is leaking. Remove the inlet and outlet hoses before trying to remove the pump. The pump is held in place by two spring clips.
Sounds like the pump is leaking. Tilt the machine back and put two 2x4s under the front legs. Shine a light under the machine and use a mirror to see where the water is coming from.
To change the pump:
Remove the two screws at the front right and left corners of the control panel. Tilt the panel back. Remove the 3 wire harness plug and the two gold clips on the right and left of the cabinet holding the cabinet to the back panel.
Tilt the cabinet forward and remove cabinet.
Locate the pump and remove the two hose clamps and the two clamps holding the pump to the front of the motor. Remove the pump.
Install the new pump
Reinstall the two hose clamps and the two clips holding the pump on.
Reinstall the cabinet, the three wire harness plug and the two gold clips holding the cabinet to the rear panel.
Tilt the control panel down and reinstall the two screws on each corner.
Hello Friend, Yes, I'd say your pump is leaking. Sometimes these pumps wear out a circular shaped hole in the front of pump housing but most of the time the rear seal on the pump goes bad and leaks from there. It's easy to replace the pump on your machine. First, remove the two screws that hold control panel in place and tilt back exposing the two metal clips that hold the cabinet in place. You will see some wires plugged into the cabinet, just unplug them. There are two clips, one on each side. Just pop these clips off and lift cabinet slightly from back and tilt forward. At this point you will be able to completely remove the cabinet. Once you have cabinet removed just set it aside. Now, you can easily remove the pump by snapping off the two spring clips. The pump will slide right off the motor shaft. Please rate my help. Happy to help, Tim.
