what does the Pump Isolator Bracket (Part Number: AP4033617) do? I need to replace my pump because it broke loose from the washer base, breaking the plastic tabs. I don't have the isolator bracket on my machine. Do I need it?
Answer Hi Dsquared. Yes you will need this pump bracket part # 25001012. It will hold (isolate) the pump motor from breaking against the base while pumping at such a high velocity rate. Today's pumps are regulated to give the max pump speed in order for the dryer efficiency make it a shorter time to dry the clothes. Thank You.
