I purchased and received this water drain pump (#AP3138954) from you for my "vintage" top load Kenmore washing machine. Unfortunately, the pump arrived without instructions. I am also replacing the drive belt which does have instructions. Ideally I would also like to see a video walking me through this repair but haven't found one on youtube showing this particular pump.
Answer Kay, You probably won't find very much information on this style washer, but you're halfway there. Once you have the belt removed, you'll need to remove the hose clamp on the drain hose and tub to pump hose from the drain pump. remove the two 1/2 in hex head screws that mount the pump to the transmission case. and tilt the pump assembly up slightly and slide the drain lever out from underneath the cutout in the transmission lifter arm. Remeber to align the rubber coverred lever on the new pump the same as the lever on the old pump and reverse the mounting process, and install the new belt according to the instructions. Thanks and Good Luck
Kenmore frontloader will not drain or spin. Why?
Answer Hello Dana. Check and see if the pump is bad and needs to be replaced. If there is power to it and it is not clogged, but does not pump out, you will need to replace the pump in the unit. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. Hope this helps. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html

Answer Hello Gil. Based on the information you provided, you will need to check and see if the lid switch 8318084 is bad on the unit. If so, you will need to replace the lid switch assembly. Hope this helps.
