If you are mechanically inclined and have a few basic tools, Yes you can. I have instructions for you and this link will take you to Sears website for drawings and parts direct.

Disconnect the power cord. Turn off the water. There are two clips, one at each front corner, holding the control panel in place. 1. The best tool to use to unhook these clips is a putty knife. From the front push the putty knife between the machine top and the control panel at either outer corner of the control panel . You will feel a spring tension. Push firmly, but not to forcefully toward the back. When the spring clip releases the control panel corner will lift easily. Repeat at the other corner. 2. Now, simply and carefully roll the control panel over the back. Do not force, some models have screws in the back top corner of the panel check this before rolling panel over the top. 3. Unplug the wire that connects the control panel to the top of the case. Stop here and take note as to how the case connects to the back panel. There is an aligner there that will be your hardest part to deal with later. This will help when reassembling. 4. OK, Put a slotted screw driver into the front of the clips at the back corners on the top and release them, once again take note to their positioning. The outer case hooks under the front of the frame and the sides have a slot that goes over a pin near the back of the frame side. (Front under, sides on top of frame)Tilt the case up on back and pull forward. Congrats you are there. The pump is the most forward part in the bottom of the case. There are two clips attaching the pump to the machine. Carefully release them with a flat blade screwdriver. There are two hoses attached to the pump and can be reused with the new pump. Be prepared to catch residual water left in the hoses from the last run. Unless you had a pump leak then they are probably empty. But best to be prepared. Allow 30 to 45 minutes for the first removal.
If the link does not work, an exploded view of your machine is available at under the parts direct tab enter your model number, found under the lid at the back of the tub opening. Copy and paste model number if needed.
If you have any questions, I am here at least onc a day. Good luck.

Is there a video showing how to get to the water pump on a Kenmore washing 8537143A

Hello. I checked my resources and your washer is an older style top loader. You can pull the washer out from the wall about 2.5 to 3 feet. Lay a bath towel across the top of the control panel. Tip the washer back till it rests against the wall and won't fall forward. The towel protects the wall from marring. Lay on the floor while wearing a headlamp, look underneath and you will see the transmission in the middle, followed by the electric drive motor, and then on the very front is the plastic water pump which drains the washer. There are 2 steel clips which hold the pump firmly to the motor. Using a small screwdriver, you can pry the clips off the pump fairly easily and then it will slide off the keyed shaft(two sides are flat). The pumps are readily available from almost any appliance parts facility.

Washer leakes from front

Good Afternoon, Jataw42:


A leak from the front means a problem at the pump, or in the attached hoses.  A large leak means a hose has to be replaced, and a small leak means the pump has to be replaced.


Both are simple fixes, and these guys have everything you need.  Here are the parts:


#904568 for the drain hose from the pump  and #1304058 from the tub to the pump.


These are here:


The pump can be found here:


and the video instructions are great.


Good Luck to you!

Water seams to build up under machine not much but enough

you either have a hose leak or a pump seal thats leaking, or perhaps a solenoid valve is leaking.  You need to remove the back and observe.

Flipped Kenmore over to replace pump now oil leaked out, where?

did you tip the washer all the way over? bad idea if you did. is the washer functioning ok? if so don't worry about it. but cannot put the oil back in. It might be ok as long as it does not leak any more oil. This oil is comeing from your transmission. which controls your agetation and spin.

Kenmore washer-top loader-replacing water pump

Had to pry it off. It took about 45 minutes to get it to come off. The reason it was so hard to get it off was that the shaft of the motor was pitted and rusted some. The new pump then wouldn't easily slide onto the shaft, so we had to use a file and sandpaper to make the shaft smooth. We then used WD-40 on the shaft and it went on rather easily, but was still plenty snug. We put the clips back on, the hoses back on and bingo, we fixed it and saved about $150.00. Neither myself or my husband had ever attempted to fix a washer or any large appliance before. Times are hard and we decided to try it on our own and were happy we did. No more leaking at all. It was a "high five" moment!!! Barbara Giles

Washing Machine stops and leaks

A Clothes Washer with the complaint "Leaks in Front" (on floor) can be;

Defective Water-Pump (Very common of non-belt models) - Many water-pumps become defective due to the constant wear and misc. items becoming lodged (coins, necklaces, shoe laces, screws, etc.) or breaking the plastic housing or connections. The water pump is fairly simply to replace and is located on the inside front of the machine.

The water pump is typically a white or off white plastic and will have (2) black drain hoses connected; one coming from the tub and the other going to the drain out the back/rear of the machine. Electric pumps with typically of 2 wires going to and connected to the pump. ** Note: When disconnecting and removing the water-pump, becareful of water remaining in tub that may come shooting/flowing out.

Kenmore top load

Sally, you should see two clips that are securing the pump to the motor. Those clips are on the top and the bottom and should pop off easily. Then the pump just pulls right off the motor. In some instances, if that pump was leaking at the seal and was left to leak for a long time, the shaft of the motor that inserts into the pump can become rusty and make it very hard to pull the pump off, as well as get the replacement back on the machine.

Hope this helps,
