SOURCE: My washing machine is not draining

You can try this: It's for the Kenmore/Whirlpool models..

The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws underneath. The panel will drop and come off. Drain off the excess water from the drain pipe you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a bunch of towels, a good big plastic bag or a wet vac to collect water. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in carefully.

SOURCE: How do you remove the

Remove the link trap/Fabric Softener dispenser from the middle. You will then need a 10mm Socket and a long extension (or 2), undo the bolt in the bottom an the give the agitator a good pull (they can be REALLY tight) if the agitator still won't move put some really hot water into the machine until it covers where the bolt is/was and leave for 5 mins then try again.

SOURCE: how to repair the bearings

Hi

Please check the bellow link related to drum bearings:-

http://www.washerhelp.co.uk/diy-repair-help_2.html#cl_q4

Also follow the easy steps:-

1) Disconnect from the power, water etc. and find some space;
2) Remove the lid (two screws at back of machine) and the back panel. I also took off the concrete weight on top to give myself some more room and less weight to move;
3) Remove the fan belt;
4) Unscrew the bolt on the end of the drive shaft. This holds the pulley in place;
5) The pulley is pushed on to a V-bushing. It may be very hard to get off. The easiest way was to put a large screwdriver behind the pulley hub and the 'spider' bracket behind. Then use leverage to pop it off. The V-bushing should then slide off the shaft;
6) Remove the three bolts that hold the ends of the spider to the drum. I found these very hard to get moving and they are also awkwardly placed. Use a socket set and you may need a bit of rust-remover/degreaser.

7) Remove the three bolts holding the central part of the spider to the drum;
8) Tap the end of the drive shaft with a hammer while pulling on the spider. The whole spider and the bearings should slide off the shaft;
9) The spider holds two bearings (one next to the drum and one next to the pulley). I'd recommend replacing both. Apparently in most cases it is the bearing closest to the drum that gets damaged usually due to water leaking through the drive-shaft seal. The two bearings are different in sizes. When ordering replacements, I'd recommend rubber sealed 'RS' bearings. There is also a shaft seal that sits between the larger bearing and the tub. The seal comes from Simpson ($25). The bearing can be bought from any bearing supply company and are about half the cost of the 'official' bearings, and probably better quality.

10) Knock out the old bearings. The correct way to do this is with bearing pullers etc, but I used a long steel rod (one of the transports locking rods that new machine's come with) and a hammer (not even rubber). First knock out the large bearing and the drive shaft seal by inserting the rod through from the other bearing side and hit firmly while alternating the position of the force around the case of the bearing. I propped the spider against a brick to ensure the bearing and seal could pop out freely. Now turn around and repeat for the other bearing;
11) Clean up the spider and shaft, ensuring you remove any rust and debris;
12) Tap the new bearings into place. Again I used a hammer and firm tapping around the ring of the bearing;
13) Tap in the new drive shaft seal;
14) Reassemble.
