WTW6600SW2 washer drain pump. Part number W10536347. The new pump taking place of the old pump came with a paper shield of some kind. We can install the pump but cant figure out how to or where to put the shield on. No directions in the box. We watched video. Video uses old part not new. No one on line in can find anything. Can we install without it? It says failure to install may result in fire. Kimberly
Answer Hello Kimberly,
The shield is intended to be installed on top of the pump between the pump and the outer tub. I have installed these and I can sympathize with you. It is a chore to figure out how it goes on. There is only one way for it to install and I had to try it several ways to figure it out. It will install. You can install the pump without the shield but if there is a fore, the manufacturer will cite the lack of the shields' installation as the cause of the issue and will take no responsibility for the damages. I would recommend to be patient and keep trying it in different ways until you figure it out. I do apologize for the manufacturers' lack of instruction and automatically assuming that the person installing the part will automatically know how to do it. As a repair technician, I have been there and every time I install one of these, I have to figure it out all over again.
Is there more than one screw holding pump on (discharge pump)? We appear to have three screws unlike your video.Ours is a top loading machine from around 2009.
Answer Jo, Yes, there are three(3) drain pump mounting screws. Here's some help "Access to the drain pump is from the bottom of the unit. The drain pump seals against the tub at two points. 1. Unplug washer or disconnect power. 2.Turn off the water supply to the washer. 3.Use cardboard or padding to lay washer on the front cabinet. 4. Disconnect hoses 5. Remove the harness from the pump motor. 6. Remove hose clamp and hose. 7. Remove three (3) mounting screws. 8. Remove pump assembly." Be careful, do not over torque the mounting screws, they have to be tight enough to seal the pump to the tub, but not so tight that they strip the mounting tabs on the tub.
What size o ring is in part # 10536347?
The part number listed is not showing as a valid part number. We would need the model number of the unit and which part this o-ring is for to be able to determine the part number for the correct o-ring and the size of the ring. Please post your model number with a new question on the parts page. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/modelnumber_locator.aspx
Is there a video for removing the pump part#w10536347 for top load Maytag washer?
Answer Hello Larry. No, there is no video. You need to lean the machine backwards and remove the hoses from the bottom of the unit and unplug the wires from the pump. Then remove the screws from the bottom of the unit. Once the screws are removed and remove the pump from the bottom of the unit.
My washing machine is not draining or spinning. Could it be my water pump? If not what could it be?
Answer Hello Beverly. It could have a bad pump. It could also be a lid switch issue on the unit. You need to check them both out.
