How to tell if Washing Machine Water Pump is Broke???

I have a Kenmore top loading washing machine that is leaking water. I have been told that it is probably the water pump (part # 3363394) and that I should replace it. My question is how can I be sure that it is the water pump before I buy a new one that can not be returned. I took the water pump out and am wondering just how easily or not it should turn?? Should this part be able to spin easily or should it be tight. Can I even tell by this if it is for sure broken? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Kenmore 80 - water leak not from hoses - could it be the pump?


Hi Gleen you probably need to remove the rear cover to expose the in side of machine.
Note if you could post a model number I could tell you for sure what would be the best way get to the pump.

Water is coming out of the bottom of the washing machine


Tip the machine back and remove the 2 clips holding on the drain pump. Remove the hoses. Then turn the pump over to where the motor shaft enters it. There will be signs of water leaking out of the pump. Your local parts store will have the pump instock.

Washing machine leakes some where frome the bottom of washer


It sounds like you pump is leaking. This happens most of the time( if its a kenmore or whilpool)lean your washer back and then you will see the pump on the end of the motor. it is held on by 2 clips and then you can take it off (after pulling iff the 2 water hoses) Look at where the motor shaft goes onto the pump if its leaking there will be a water streak. Replace the pump... leak is fixed
