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.
Hi, I have an old washing machine and the belt finally broke. I am in the process of replacing the belt. I have taken all three star screws out from the pump but the pump still will not come out, so I could slide the new belt around the pulley. Is there any other thing I need to take out for the pump to come apart? Please help.
Answer Hi Joe. The best thing to do is to use a black felt marker to mark the pump as it is still in place with the motor turned upside down. The motor shaft will rust so bad as you will literally need to pry (even bust), the plastic pump off the shaft. You will be gratefull to yourself by cleaning the motor shaft off and then using some grease on the shaft for future replacements. The pump is part # 27001233. Thank you.
Washer with Model # SAV205DAWN has three screws that hold the pump on and it looks like these screws must be accessed from underneath the bottom of the washer; do you have to take the bottom of the washer off to access these screws or do you have to be a special 90 degree screwdriver tool ?
Answer Hello Jack. You will need to remove the belt from the washer pulley, and remove the wires from the motor. Then remove the two bolts holding the motor and pump assembly to the washer tub. Once removed, you can remove the motor and pump assembly from the machine to do the repair. Reinstall in reverse order. Hope this helps.
I replaced the belt on the washer and now when the washer spins and starts pumping the water out. The water is overflowing over the top. This happened in large or small load.
Answer Ray, are you sure you have the drain pump attached to the motor properly? Was this the original problem? You most likely have a small article stuck in the tub to pump hose or in the pump itself. The pump impeller could also stripped of the pump drive shaft. Good Luck
