The poorly designed Diverter Valve PLASTIC hinge has broken. My washer has done it twice in 6 years to the tune of $200.00 each. I am looking for a replacement with a better design. Griff

Hi, The washer wont unload or drain water until the drain pump is working. Get the pump off and look for debris. To remove the pump you unlock the tab and twist the pump a hair. The pump is on the bottom of tub.
