Removal of drain pump

I need to change the pump, it seems that it just pulls of as I cannot see any specific fixings. Can anyone tell me if all you need is brute force and ignorance to remove this from the housing, or am I missing a fixing somewhere? I am reluctant to use too much force as it is a plastic housing.

There are two clips underneath cabinet base. difficult to remove and difficult to replace.
an alternative way but a bit fiddly, is to undo the 3 screws that hold pump to pump hosing - that is the way i always do it

Hoover top loader 750lc about 8 years old

Hi just read your posting.Now the only way to drain your machine if it is not draining is to do it by hand with a small pot or bucket. Do you hear a small click when you close the lid slowly?If you do then that is the lid switch.It will not drain if your lid switch is not activating.Did you wash a big load before the problem started?Also could be a faulty or jammed drain pump.I can guide you throe the removal of the pump to see if it is the problem if you have some tools available.Please reply after you have tested the lid switch and I can guide you throe the rest of the repair if needed.

How do i change the water pump on a 1999 2.5 v6 chrysler sebring?


Drain cooling system, remove the timing belt if necessary. Remove water pump mounting bolts. Separate water pump from water inlet pipe and remove.

Replace water pump if it has damage or cracks to pump body. Check the shaft seal for any leaks as evidence by traces of coolant from vent hole. Check for any impeller rubbing inside pump, and for loose or rough bearings.

Clean all gasket and "O" ring surfaces. Install NEW "O" ring on water pipe (wet "O" ring with water to aid assembly). DO NOT allow oil or grease to contact "O" ring. Install NEW gasket on water pump, and install pump inlet opening over water pipe. Install pump-to-block bolts and tighten to specification 18 FT. Lbs. (25n.m). To complete installation, reverse removal procedure.

Hope this helps :)

I have the same problem

I had the same problem, I changed the water discharge pump and the drain problem was fixed. I still have the loud sound during the wash cycle but it does not coincide with the drum movement. I think a will pull the wash pump to check for lint buildup. people cleaning the lint trap will avoid alot of unnecessary headaches.

Change powers steering pump

Hi, this is a step by step guide that will help you within your replacement of this device.

Loosen the drive belt and slip the belt over the pulley. Use a suction gun to **** out as much power steering fluid as possible. Place a drain pan under the pump and disconnect the lines and fluid return hose. You may need to remove the air cleaner housing to access the return hose. Allow everything to drain completely.
Cap the ends of all the lines to prevent leakage. Remove the mounting fasteners and detach the pump from the engine. You should be able to pull it free from the car completely and take a moment to inspect it and see what went wrong. You could then prevent the demise of the new power steering pump by addressing the source of the problem.
Measure how far the pump shaft protrudes from the face of the pulley hub, if it is necessary to remove the pulley to access the pump, as is the case with some engines. This assembly will need to be reinstalled to the correct positioning after the new pump is installed.
Install the new pump using the reverse removal procedure and make sure all fasteners are tightened securely. Also, take a moment to bleed the power steering system according to the directions in your repair manual. For specific instructions on the reassembly of some items during this process, consult your repair manual as each engine has its own specifications.

Please rate and have a great day:)

Draining issues

I just fixed a similar problem on my Samsung WF337 The machine was making a grinding noise during a wash cycle. After entering 'service mode' (see the "Washing Machine Technical Information booklet that came with your machine) and testing the drain pump operation I determined that the pump was the source of the noise. Eventually I found that a nickel had worked it's way into the drain pump. The manual does not address how to access or clean the pump so I thought I would post instructions.
  • Unplug the machine and turn off the water supply.
  • Remove the silver back panel by taking out the two phillips head screws, pushing the panel up, then pulling out on the bottom.
  • Under the tub, you will see the pump with two hoses attached. The black hose is the inlet from the tub and the white hose is the outlet to the standpipe

  • Using a cup and/or a towel to catch excess water, remove the hoses by squeezing the spring clamps and sliding them aside (slip joint pliers make this easier) then pulling the hoses off of the fittings on the pump.
  • If you need to take to pump out: Remove the three bolts (12mm hex head). I used a 1/2" drive ratchet with a 6"extension.
  • d6a0b69.jpg
  • Unplug the power connector from the pump.
  • You can now lift the pump assembly out of the machine and remove any obstructions. To get the coin out, I had to shake the pump a few times and reach in with my finger to dislodge it.
  • And as always installation is the reverse of removal. Don't forget to reconnect the power cable to the motor and turn the water supply back on.

My washer/dryer is not draining properly.

If the pump is not draining, either the drain filter screen is clogged with debris, the drain pump is jammed by foreign debris or the drain pump itself has failed.  More than likely something is clogged in the filter screen or a sock is jammed up inside the drain bellows tube just before the filter.  Pull the drain filter screen out and look up the hole to see if there is any material stuck inside.  Usually that's the problem.
