Yes, this is quite a hard job as the metal upper casing of the machine has to be removed from the plastic lower casing to gain acces to the pump.

Hello,my 2000 odyssey leaks oil.guy said its front oil seal but im gonna need time belt,water pump,vtec valve and oil pan gasket.Do i really need all that just to change front seal? $400 for labor?


A leaking front seal will allow oil to get into the area where the timing belt is located. This will cause oil to get on the belt and can cause damage. Since the timing cover must be removed to access the front seal, it is recommended to replace the belt while you are in there. Also, the water pump is driven off the timing belt. Replacement of the water pump is always recommended when replacing the timing belt for two reasons. First, it is easily replaced at this time and it is good preventive maintenance. Secondly, the water pump bearing is under tension from the timing belt and develops a wear pattern. Replacement of the belt without replacing the pump will cause the new belt to wear the bearing in a different pattern, often causing leaking in a very short time after the replacement. This would then result in having to repeat all the labor again to replace the pump. It is easy to see that for $400.00 labor, you don't want to do that again in only 2-3 months. as far as the VTEC valve is concerned, I don't see a relationship to the oil leak. It could just be something else the mechanic found during the inspection. I can find nothing in the remove/replace procedures that requires replacement of the oil pan gasket. Again, maybe something additional that is needed from visual inspection, but not needed for the front seal.

Tip

Checking the Drain Pump on a Whirlpool Cabrio


This advice explains step-by-step how to inspect for obstructions in the drain pump of a Whirlpool Cabrio. This model washer actually has TWO pumps. One is the drain pump, one is a recirc pump. The easiest way to access the pumps on a Cabrio is to tip the washer back and work from the bottom. There is a rear panel access you can remove for added access, but it limits your ability to get to the mounting bolts. These washers are heavy, however, and removing any excess water will help minimize weight and the potential mess you are going to have to mop up when you remove the drain line(s) from the pump. The easiest way to do this is to use a wet/dry shop vac and pull a vacuum on the drain line. You may have to repeat this procedure several times as the Cabrio has an extra large capacity drum and tends to hold more residual water than most other washer models.

NOTE: Residual water in the wash tub, drain lines and pumps is NORMAL.

With the residual water removed, carfeully tip the washer back against the wall. Place a towel between the washer and wall to avoid marring of the washer or your wall.

NOTE: A second person is recommended to hold the washer in place so it doesn't not fall. When working alone, I have used blocks of wood (such as a 2x8 standing on edge) to block the washer up as a safety precaution.

As you are viewing the washer from the front, the drain pump will be on your RIGHT hand side. The recirc pump is on the left. Either pump comes out easily by following these steps:

1. Make sure the washer is UNPLUGGED before you begin.

2. Carefully disconnect the electrical connection.

3. Remove the mounting bolts that hold the pump in place.

4. Remove the inlet and drain hose(s) from the pump.

With the pump free, you can easily access the impeller area and retrieve anything that may be caught. Drill bits and screws are commnly found as they will pass through the small holes in the wash tub spin basket.

I would begin with the DRAIN pump, first. It tends to be the catch-all for everything. If the drain pump is clear, inspect the recirc pump as well.

To reinstall, follow the steps I have provided in reverse order. NOTE: Some people prefer to remove the the drain hose before unbolting the pump. Choose whatever method you prefer.

If the pump impeller is damaged, the pump will need to be replaced.

Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

Prices vary between these sites, so shop and compare. The first three sites listed also offer helpful exploded view diagrams to help you locate and properly identify the parts you need.

I hope this information is helpful.

Aqua smart fault 248


248. (11111000) SmartPump Top Up Fault
More than 6 attempts have been made to top-up the water level in the bowl during
recirc. This then signifies that the flapper valve has not closed full and some water
is diverting to drain.
Primary Source: Poor Flapper Seal.
Action: 1) Clean any foreign objects out of the pump, concentrating especially
on the flapper and drain/recirc port areas.
2) Remove the flapper to ensure no foreign objects exists below and
around the flapper.
3) Check for flapper damage, especially the lip seals. If damaged,
replace.
Secondary Source: Cap not tight, warped, damaged (worn).
Action: 1) Check that the hood/cap are tight. If loose and screws are difficult
to tighten, foreign objects could be in screw boss. Remove pump
fully and inspect/replace if in doubt.
2) Check the cap is not warped or it is not excessively worn in the
area where it contacts the flapper. Replace the cap if warped or
worn.
Tertiary Source: Damaged Pump Housing Port
Action: Check there is no excessive wear to the pump housing port caused
by foreign objects. Replace pump if necessary.
Quaternary Source: Motor Control Module.
Action: Replace Motor Control Module.

What else needs to be changed when doing a timing belt on a 1999 honda accord? and about how much should it cost?


Technically, nothing else needs to be changed when replacing a timing belt, however it is recommended or suggested to replace the timing belt tensioner and water pump while doing the belt. These items are only accessable when doing a timing belt. The cost should be under $100.00

Water pump leaks, needs replaced


Obviously if a Water Pump is leaking that is indicative of a Seal Failure and requires replacement. This is a job you can do yourself if you are handy with tools. Remove the old Water Pump, go to any Auto Parts store such as AutoZone, Oriley's, or some other National chain and purchase a re-manufactured Water Pump and install it with new gasket(s). This can be a somewhat time consuming repair somewhere between one and four hours. Getting at it may require removal of Fan Shroud, Radiator or other components that restrict access to the Water Pump. Obviously a 1995 vehicle will have well over 100,000 miles and this is considered routine maintenance typically around 70,000 miles or more, or 10 years or more. Sometimes the Seal fails because the Coolant wasn't changed often enough and broke down causing the seal to fail sooner. Dirty Dusty conditions will require more frequent changing as dirt eventually gets into the pump and causes the seal to abrade and fail.

If your blower motor is in the engine compartment, I suspect you did not get a good seal around the housing when you reinstalled it. Usually a foam gasket.
For now, push the recirc button so you are drawing air from inside the car into you heater system. Recirc doesn't work on defrost or floor/defrost.

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 searspartsdirect.com. 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 repairclinic.com 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.
