How do you get the water pump to come off the motor so I can change the water pump? thx
Answer Hello Linda. You need to remove the motor from the unit. Turn it over and there is 3 screws you will remove that is securing the pump to the motor. Once removed, you lift the pump off the motor shaft.
Water was leaking out of the top of the drain pump so I replaced it with a new pump... Now it's leaking even more... Any ideas what to check next ?
Answer Hello Jeff. It sounds like you didn't get the pump installed properly or the hose are not on it good. Also, look for cracks in the hose or the tub assembly.
i took the three screws off the water pump but still wont come off the moter or shaft.
Answer Hello Dearhunter. If the screws are removed, you may need to use a straight blade screwdriver and pry the pump off the motor shaft. If it is rusted to the shaft, the pump can become very tight. Once removed, you will need to sand the shaft down, so the new pump 27001233 goes on easy. Hope this helps.
After I have taken the three star screws off, I have try to pry the pump off as you said. Its wiggles a little but does not come off. If there is nothing ales holding it together, What would be my next option? I do not want to bust the pump, if I can help it. Please advice.......
Answer Hi Jay. Sorry as if we were not clear enough on the last transaction, but you really need to pry hard. Even if you break it, if you have the new one, it dont matter. If you are concerned @ possibility of not needing to purchase a pump, then visually inspect the insides and make sure it is OK. I know you need to replace the belt. What is the exact model # for your unit? Thank you.
