Question about Washing Machines

Ok so you have the cabinet removed if you can see the pump. That is the hardest part of changing this pump.. 1 with a flat screwdriver remove upper and lower retainer clips.turn them 90 degrees and clips will slide out. remove pump from motor 2 get a bucket to catch the water. with pliers remove both hose clamps then pull off hoses.you have just removed the pump. when reinstalling I like to use screw hose clamps much better then spring hose clamps. just so you will not have any leaks... Hope this helps let me know..krazytech

could be just the fuse, but failing that check all circuit boards for signs of blowing or burns, some machines when there is a short on the pump blow the circuit on the timer which is the most expensive part to replace best of luck

it was snug, it was not melted or
rusted, and did just come out).
8. Clean pump and motor as desired.

you may have a bad pump stuck take the pump back off you should be able to turn the pump by sticking your finger in the slot that it slides up on the motor shaft if it turns with a little resistance the pump is ok if it will not turn then it needs to be replaced
also check to make sure that the motor connector wiring is tight and the lid switch connector is tight also
