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.
I just received a new pump and it came with the plastic sheild, with no directions on how it fits and I cant figure out for the life of me how it is supposed to fit over the pump, unless they are trying to save the planet by not using the original plastic housing then this is a cheap solution. How does it fit?
Answer Hello Isatech,
The cover is just a cardboard water diverter. You just line up the holes to install it. The machine will not know the difference if it is not installed or installed incorrectly as long as it cannot contact the wiring. There should be a hole for each screw. This doesn't leave many choices on its' installation. If it doesn't seem to make sense, turn it over and it might make more sense.
I ordered part W10217134 for a cabrio washer and I received part w10536347 instead and the part I received does not have a plastic housing like the one I had. Will the pump I received work on my washer?
Answer Hello Kim! The water pump W10536347 is a manufacturer replacement part. It may differ in appearance but is a functional equivalent to the original. If you would like to repost with your model number we will be glad to verify the parts ordered/received will fit your product. Thanks.
