A washing machine pump is typically used to pump the water out of the washer tub in a domestic washing machine. It contains an impeller that rotates in the intended direction of the water flow. They are typically located below the level of the washer tub. Washer pumps get their mechanical rotational motion from the washer motor. This motion is transferred to the pump either by a belt or by a direct drive method. In the case of a belt, wearing or stretching can often cause slippage on the pulley of the motor or pump. This will cause the washer to not drain property or at all. In the case of a direct drive system, a motor coupler is used to turn the pump.
How to buy Washer Pumps
There are numerous websites out there that sell Washer Pumps. Pay close attention to the price and shipping charges. Many websites will charge a low price for Washer Pumps, but a high price for shipping. Also, try to buy Washer Pumps from the original equipment manufacturer (OEM), if possible. This will help ensure that they are within the proper specifications for your appliance.
Washer Pump Troubleshooting and Repair Tips
How do you know if your washing machine pump is bad? A tyupical symptom is that your washer will not drain. In the case of a bad pump, it typically could be locked up (because perhaps a sock or some other item has lodged itself in the pump) or the internal impeller has broken free from the shaft. In either case, the pump will no longer pump water out of the washer. If the water won't pump out, then the washer will not effectively spin either.
To access the pump, first unplug the washer. The tub should then be drained. This can be done in several ways. Some common ways are to siphon it out or to simply dip it out with a small bucket. Once drained, the washer must be disassembled. The pump hoses should be removed and the pump checked for internal blockages. Remove the coupler or belt from the pump and attempt to turn the pump shaft. If it cannot be turned, it may be locked up.
If the washing machine pump is deemed bad, replace it with a correct model and reassemble the mechanism and washer. Plug the washer back in and test by adding a small amount of water and then placing the washer in the spin cycle. The washer should now drain. Be sure to run the washer through all of the cycles to make sure it works properly.

I moved to Denver because I knew the city had a lot more opportunities than the small Missouri town I came from, and I needed a lot of help getting set up here. The first issue I ran into here was a broken washer that apparently happened during the move. This washer was one of my nearly new appliances and I really did not want to buy another new one so soon. I was about to go to one of the usual appliance chains I went to while living in Missouri when one of my new friends stopped me. He told me I was crazy to go to a place like that, and that I should try Lynn Cummingham Appliance instead.
I know my friend has excellent task in large consumer appliances, so I took his advice. I felt immediately welcomed in their store. The salespeople were very patient with me and didn’t try to push anything on me in an effort to squeeze as much money out of me as possible. This is much different than the stores I am used to that try to sell you something you cannot afford and encourage you to put it on the stores credit card.
So after I gained the trust of the store I invited them to take a look at my dryer and see if they could fix it.
What a great choice. The repair was simple and relatively simple. The repairman’s vast experience really paid off and saved me a heap of time and money. I was incredibly grateful and will definitely shop with them again.
Getting the best deal on appliances
I have a few friends who work for the Lynn Cunningham Appliance store and they really like their jobs. Although it might not be the career they had in mind when they were young children, they say that this is a job that pays decently and gives very good benefits. Beyond health insurance, this job gives people that possibility of paid time off when they would like it and with this paid time off they are really able to help out where it is needed around the house and have a staycation.
I should really think about taking a stay vacation more often if you ask me. I would have a lot of fun for the first few days getting all my errands done and then I would probably not have a ton more to do if I were unable to think about much else. I have a friend who moved out of town recently and she was having a really hard time trying to find a good job other than at the chocolate shop she worked at for a while.
And I believe that she just got a job and I am really very proud of her. She really deserve a job that makes her happy and that she can grow from. She is just in her mid 20s and that is an age where you are trying to figure out who you are and what you are doing with yourself. So she is right on track with that sort of thing. She is also going to get some kitchen appliances.
