It was flashing nd. So I got out the manual and looked
up the error code.
about 10-12 mins and then the dreadful beep, beep,
beep assaulted my ears once again.
drain hoses to the pump, you’ll need to slide
those down so you can remove the hoses
from the pump, the hubs used a pair of
vice grips. The clamp springs back
into shape once you let them go.
There will be water so have plenty of towels and a
bucket ready. Chances are there won’t be a clog in
the hoses because they are pretty wide
anyways. From there unscrew your pump
from the washer…there is also a wire connection
that you will have to let go…ours had 2 wires,
so just remember where the wires go…if possible take
a picture to refer to when hooking the pump back up.
So here’s our pump.
We took pictures of our pump from all sides before
we started taking any screws out so that we could
be sure we were putting it back together properly.
Here’s what we found when we took it apart.
I guess you could say it was my fault.
A bobby pin was preventing the pump from turning.
We were relieved though to actually find
something in the pump otherwise we’d really
have to call service because we wouldn’t
have known what to do next.
The hubs put everything back together the
same way he took it apart and I put my dripping
wet clothes back in and set it on the spin cycle.
After a few moments of fear the washer started
to spin…such relief!
I’d like to add that this is the first time my husband
fixed this washer (it’s the first time the washer
broke), he had no clue really what he was getting
into. It wasn’t that bad so I think most of us could
do this rather than pay a technician.
