Pump Replacement I am trying to replace the pump in my washer. The Manf. number is WH23X10011. This particular pump is over $100.00 and that is more than I paid for the washer, is there another pump that would work?

If your washer is more than 5 years old and repairs will cost more than you paid originally, it may be time for replacement rather than repair

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 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

SOURCE: Wont power on after replacing drain pump.

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

Steps for Replacing the Belt

Tools needed:
Nut driver or socket set.
Torex screw driver.

1. Unplug the power cord from the
electric socket and remove the
front panel.
2. Disconnect the power coupling
from the motor.
3. Disconnect the 2 hoses from the
pump. Be aware that the pump
still contains between 1 and
2 cups of water, and it WILL
all come out.
4. Remove the belt from the idler
arm, pushing the belt UNDER the
idler arm. Yes, your hands will
now be quite greasy.
5. Remove the belt from the main
transmission by pushing the belt
under the transmission pulley.
6. Remove the 4 bolts that hold the
motor assembly to the washing
machine body. Remove the motor
assembly with belt from the
washing machine.
7. Turn the motor upside-down. With
the torex screwdriver, remove the
3 bolts that hold the pump to the
motor. Remove the pump from the
motor (in my case, the motor shaft
fit into a slot in the pump; while
it was snug, it was not melted or
rusted, and did just come out).
8. Clean pump and motor as desired.
9. Install new belt and reverse the
steps to re-install.

I have a ic2 pump on my pressure washer, the diagrams have failed. My question is I need the parts to repair it, or how to purchase a replacement.

You can purchase a complete unit from Grainger for about $210.00. Their part number is 6UZP8. And in most cases they are located locally, so you can pick it up and be back in business quick. The pump is actually manufactured by Excell Power, so my thought would be replace the pump and then try to find a rebuild kit for the bad pump and try to rebuild it as a backup. Hope this helps.

My honda press. washer is pooring water out the back, their is a band in the back that holds 2 ceramic rods, the band and rods are broke. can these be ordered

Most parts are available from many locations depending on the brand of the pump. Look for brand /model number of the pump itself (not the model of the pressure washer). With model number ready, get on line and find or a number of other locations and look for parts list for your pump. If the parts kits are expensive, look on ebay for a complete replacement pump for your engine size and wand/tips. Good luck on your repair.

Bad water pump on my washing machine

Is this a top loader? If so, these instructions should work for you since this is a Whirpool manufactured washer:

Replacement pumps can be purchased on line at or Both sites offer excellent illustrations and competitive prices, so shop both for the best price. The pump is listed under the heading for the Pump/Motor/Gearcase. Just use the model number off your washer for your search criteria.

This is a fairly simple repair, but if you have questions along the way, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

PS If my instructions aren't accurate, or if this is not a top loader, please post back with your model number so that I may be able to determine how your washer is contructed.

Frigidaire front load washer

That sounds more like a jammed pump.

You need to check if the pump is obstructed, then test the solenoid and the pump by energizing the pump. If the drain pump is faulty replace it.
Observe strictly all safety rules if you DIY, the repairs must be done by qualified personell.

You can find replacement parts and diagrams by entering model number here.

Replace washer pump

Although I am not too familiar with your particular model (I have a 96 Grand Cherokee), I have never heard of having to remove a fender to replace a washer pump on ANY vehicle.  The pump is usually attached to the bottom of the washer tank.  That tank can usually be removed with just a few nuts or screws and then you can get to the pump attached.

Whirlpool wtw6400 rattling noise in final spin sounds like may be object in pump water is also leaking how to check and or replace

For this model washer there are two pumps. The pump on the right hand side of the washer is the DRAIN pump, while the pump on the left is the recirc pump (as viewed from the front of the washer). The easiest way to access the pump(s) is to either tilt the washer backwards and work from underneath, or remove the back panel. I usually remove the back panel, AND work from underneath, If something is caught in the pump, be prepared that you may have a damaged pump that requires replacement. To replace either pump follow these steps:

1. Unplug the washer.
2. Remove drain hose from the standpipe at the wall, and use a shop vac to pull a vacuum on the drain line to suction all the remaining water from the wash tub. There is quite a bit of water that remains in the wash tub that needs to be drained BEFORE removing any of the drain hoses (this is normal, by the way). Not draining the washer can be a very messy experience.
3. With the water drained, disconnect the electrical connections from the pump and loosen the mounting screws that hold the pump in place.
4. Remove the hose clamps and disconnect the two drain hoses from the pump.
5. With the pump removed, inspect the inlet side to see if anything is lodged in the impeller. Inspect the pump for any obvious signs of damage. It is common for nails, screws and drill bits to get caught in these pumps as small items like this will fit through the holes inside the wash tub.
6. Reinstall pump using the steps in reverse order. If the pump does not function, you will have to replace it.

A replacement pump can be ordered on line at Just type in your COMPLETE model number (usually located along the wash tub opening) and the pump(s) will be located under the "Pump Parts" heading as either item number 1 (drain pump - part #W10049390) or 4 (recirc pump - part #8578573).

I hope you find this information helpful. If you require additional assistance, please let me know.

PS You can find these same pumps at as well. The drain pump is a little more in price, but the recirc pump is listed a lot cheaper. Use the part number listed above for your search.

Whirlpool washer Duet model ghw9100lw

Okay, it sounds like you could very well have something lodged in the pump impeller. You can check the pump and clean the reservoir to see if there actually IS something there, and to see if clearing it will enable the washer to drain. The following link explains how:

Follow these instructions, you may get away without having to order any replacement parts. If you can hear the pump running, there may be a chance that the pump still may be operational. However, if something has been lodged in the impeller for a while, the pump may be damaged to the point where it no longer pumps like it should. The only cure for this is to replace the pump. The next link gives you step-by-step tips on how to do it:

Many of the steps are similar, but I try to be thorough. To answer your question, yes, this can be accomplished by the average do-it-yourselfer. You can find a replacement pump at Type in your model number as "GHW9100LW0" and the pump can be found under the "Pump and Motor" heading as item number 10 (part #8181684). The pump is sold as a complete assembly. I noticed that the pump is currently listed as being on backorder. It may take a couple of weeks for it to ship. If you need the pump sooner, also carries it, but charges more for it. If decide to go this option, use the part number provided by Sears.

I'm still a little miffed by your symptoms. Normally, a drainage problem has an error code associated with it. Did the washer flash any codes on the front panel display? If so, you need to provide that information as well. If you require further assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
