Hello, this is Tyler with Appliance Service by Paul. Going to walk you through the proper steps of how to repair the drain pump on your washer. Two metal clips here that you're going to release. Once those clips are off, your pump will pull straight off. You'll then grab a pair of pliers or Channelocks, and remove the metal clamps. Once those clamps are removed, you want to grab a towel. There's usually water that will come out of here. This one doesn't have any water. And, here's your drain pump. There's a couple things you can do. One, you can repair it. The only repair really for it is you can look down in it, see if you can find any socks or bobby pins, nails. You can then pull them out from there, and reinstall your pump, or replace it. If your pump's leaking, you're going to want to replace it. To replace it, you do the same thing, just in reverse. Going to put the two hoses on. Re-tighten your clamps, make sure they get on there tight, or you will leak water on your floor. You're going to line the motor shaft up with the shaft of the drain pump. And then, take the two clips, and snap them back into place. Again, this is Tyler with Appliance Service by Paul. We've just walked through the proper steps of how to repair the drain pump on your washer.
