I ordered replacement part AP4044331. It arrived today. The serial #, etc matches my old part exactly. However, the base is shaped completely different and has only a single screw to attach(rather than 2 on the original part) and there is no place to put the metal reinforcement. There is NO WAY that this part will fit into the rubber piece that keeps it from banging into the metal. IS there something I'm missing here??
ANSWER Hi Lynette. If your model # ends with the last 2- numbers of "10", then you will need pump part # W10175948. This is the pump part complete with brackets and complete assy. You received the pump without the mount bracket. You should be able to compare with the old pump to see where the mount bracket exactly bolts to the pump. Remove the side screws on the new pump and mount the bracket there. Make sure you have the inside o- ring placed in correctly if it falls out. Then slide and twist firmly into the base.
