How do I remove the drain pump?
Answer Yvonne, You'll need to raise and block the front of the washer up about 6 inches. On the bottom of the front panel, approximately 2 inches in from the corners, you'll see/find the two springloaded clips holding the front panel to the front base frame, you'll need a flat blade screwdriver to pry down on the clip, and pull out on the corner of the front panel, until it is free at the bottom. pivot the panel out at the bottom until the top clips release from the washer top panel and set the panel aside. Carefully reach under the base, and "roll" the pump belt off the pulleys. You'll need to place a few old towels in the cabinet or on the floor behind the washer to collect the water that will pour out of the hoses, when you loosen the hose clamps and remove the hoses from the pump outlets. You will need a 5/16 in nut driver or socket to remove the three(3) pump mount bolts, from the bottom side of the base, you can do this by feel mostly (use the 3 pump support legs as guides) lean the pump towards you and then lift the pump and pulley out of the opening in the base. Reverse the procedure to install the replacement pump, but leave the mounting bolts hand tight and as far to the right as possible, install the pump belt. Hold the motor assembly in position, and "pinch" the pump belt together in the center of the belt, you may see the pump slide to the left slightly, then tighten the pump mount bolts properly. This will give you the proper belt adjustment for both belts.
Water begins dripping from left side of back after 7 or 8 minutes into cycle and continues. Total water leak per cycle is about a cup and half. There are no other symtoms, just the leak.
Answer Hello Frank,
The unit needs to be opened to determine what component(s) are at fault. To open the unit, use a paint scraper or putty knife to depress the tabs located about 3 to 4 inches from the sides just below the front edge of the main top. This will allow the main front to drop forward and you should be abler to run the unit and watch it with a flashlight to pinpoint the leaks point of origin.
Washer fills up real slow on all 3 water cycles.
Answer Hello George. Check and make sure the water coming to the washer has good pressure. If so, you need to order and replace the water valve on the unit.
Water leaking out of the tub where the plastic meets when draining?
Answer Hello. You will need to check and see if the drain pump 6-2022030 is working properly and removg the water. Make sure the pump belt is good as well. If not, this will cause the issue you are having.
Washer will not pump out water on spin cycle. I've reached under and can spin the pulley, but it's not free and easy. that being said, it still had the belts and hoses attached. When running on spin cycle the drum does spin around but there is no water being pumped out and there is a smell of rubber burning. What do you suppose it is? Any help you can provide is great. thanks
Answer Hi Dan. Remove the belts and then turn the motor part # W10411000 ,pump part # 6-2022030 . Use a shop vac and towels to pick up the water when you remove the pump and see if anything internal is stopping the pump vanes from turning. Is the motor not turning freely or is the motor glides starving for a light greasing so the glides will slide. Check belts for wear, if needed order 12112425. Let me know how to assist in the future. Thank You.
After the washer goes through the spin cycle it leave about 2 to 3 inches of waster in the tub. It does not do this all the time but most of the time. Do I need to replace the pump?
Answer Hello Charles. Check and make sure the pump belt is good and it is not clogged. Also, make sure the water is shutting off properly and is not filling during spin. If all of this is good, replace the pump assembly 6-2022030. Hope this helps.
