Is it a direct drive washer? If so then the back doesn't come off. You can take off the outside housing very easily. Just locate the 2 screws on the back top corners of the washer. Remove them then flip the control panel backwards. Unplug the lid switch and remove gold clamps by prying them up with a screwdriver. Then just lift off the housing---the pump should be right in the front.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

hi, the washer pump is located in the bottom of the washer bottle that you fill up you may need to get to this from under neath the car.
if you have a look at where you fill the washer bottle up and follow it to the very bottom you will then see the pump if you have rear wash as well then you will have 2 pumps one for front and one for the back.
now if you cant hear the one pump working then the chances are the pump needs replacing if they both dont work then i would check fuses first, if you can hear the pump work but no water comes out then give the water jets a good poke with a pin and this should get them working
if you do need to replace the pump get to the bottom of the washer from under the car and you should then see the pumps in the bottom of the bottle now you need to pull the wire connectors off they are only a push fit and then to get the pump out you need to twist it out the pump is only pushed into a rubber bung in the bottom of the washer bottle so its not held in by bolts or screws its just a push fit.
if you buy the new pump first you will see what i mean about it being a push fit once you have the old one out just push the new one in the replace the wires and rubber hose and then give it a try.
Hi, their are a couple of common problems here. but first of all check the following. can you heat the pump come on when you press the button for the washer, if you cant hear it from in the car open the bonnet and get someone to press the button and listen for the pump if you hear it then you know the pumps working if you dont hear anything then the pump needs replacing.
if neither the front or back windows work and the pumps make no sound for front or back washer then your next stop would be the fuse box, check all the fuses and replace any blown fuses then try the washers.
If how ever you can hear the pump working then the problem is going to be one of 2 things the most common is going to be that the water jets are blocked to unblock them get a small needle and poke into the holes where the water comes out of then try the washer, if it still dont work then the problem is the other end at the washer botlle, you will find the pipe by the pump has gelled up due to the cleaning fluid you put into the washer bottle so what you now need to do is remove the washer bottle and the pumps and give the pipes a good clean out to ensure they are not blocked.
It seems like your machine is neither Pumping nor spinning, that is why it is unable to drain the water out. In this case you should check the pump. Your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley. If so you need to replace it. To check the
pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually.
If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. Give it a check. Do get back to us if you need any further assistance. Thanks
check the wiring to the washer pump - its on the bottom of the washer bottle, disconnect the connector to the rear washer pump (do them both)
and clean up the contacts with sandpaper -
you can try swapping the connectors over and see if the front washer connector will power the rear washer, if so the problem is a fuse or the rear washer switch is broken.
Tell me how you get on and I'll advise further.
This way you can prove both pumps work, if the rear pump wont work off the front pump cable then the pump is at fault and needs replacing.
Do you See any Error Code? If yes, let me know. Unless i could provide you with a Generic Guide that would help you :-
It doesn't spin or pump
your washer doesn't spin or pump water out but the motor is running,
your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley. If so, you need to
replace the pump. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer
and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if
it's frozen or stiff--replace it.
It pumps, but the water returns
the water that pumps out of the machine goes back into the machine
after the spin cycle, your washer may be siphoning the water from a
laundry tub that has a slow drain, back into the washer. The usual
remedy for this is to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is
something stuck in the drain?) Also, check for these problems:If the drain hose reaches more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub, cut off the excess.
If your drain hose is lower than the washer's cabinet, install an air gap/siphon break assembly.
HI, this leak is caused by the back up or clog in the drainage system. use the following text to troubleshoot this issue.
Check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain
hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom
and towards the back of the washing machine).
If the drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the
water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's
the case replace the water pump. Note: if you have a belt driven
washer, check the belt(s) for cracks, as this would be a perfect
time to replace the belt(s) if needed.
this washer your have to take the 2 1/2" bolts on each side the motor then you will have to take 3 star bit screws out of the bottom of the pump slide the pump off then put it all back together and then after mounting you motor and pump back up put it on the transmission puller
