Samsung Drain Pump Relocation Kit

Posted on July 19, 2014

To improve quality Samsung has relocated the drain pump assembly from the bottom of the tub to the base of the washer on certain model numbers and production dates.  Previously these washers used part number DC97-16985A for the drain pump but this pump has been discontinued and replaced with one of the two service kits part # DC98-01877A or DC98-01877B depending on the model number and manufacture date of the washer.  First locate your model and serial number tag on the washing machine.  This tag is located on the top back console of the washer, and it will list the model number, serial number, and manufacture date. The manufacture date is listed in the format of YYYY.MM (ex: 2012.06).  Below is an example model and serial number tag to show where the manufacture date is located.


If the washer was manufactured before 12/9/2012 and you have one of the qualifying models, then you will need to order the corresponding drain pump kit listed in the chart below.  Washers manufactured 12/10/2012 and later use part number PD00030925 for the drain pump and do not require the drain pump relocation kit.  Please not that the manufacture date is listed in the format of YYYY.MM (ex: 2012.06) on the tag of the washer and it will not show the day it was manufactured.  If the washer was manufactured in the month of December of 2012 you will need to check the washer to see if the pump is located on the bottom of the tub.  If the pump is located on the bottom of the tub you will need to order a drain pump relocation kit.  For installation instructions, please see the bottom of this post.

Model Code Manufacture Date BOM Version Use Part #

WA456DRHDWR/AA 12/9/2012 or Earlier 000 PD00004977

When the drain pump fails it can cause water to leak from the pump or it can cause the water not to drain out of the washing machine.

How To Remove & Install Drain Pump W10536347

Removing drain pump part number W10536347 is a simple task.  When this pump fails, the washer will display “LD” on the display which means “Long Drain”.  This pump can be found on Whirlpool Cabrio, Maytag Bravos, and Kenmore Oasis model washing machines.  The pump can fail if something gets stuck in the pump (coin, clothing item, ect), and sometimes you can get lucky and just remove the object that was stuck in the pump.  Other times the pump can break, so make sure so inspect the pump before putting it back in the washer.

How to the remove the drain pump:

  1. Unplug the washer
  2. Next, you will need to remove any water still in the washer (use a wetvac, bucket, towels, ect to do this)
  3. Turn off the water supply going to the washer & disconnect the hot & cold fill hoses to the washer
  4. Remove the drain hose from the wall or drain tub
  5. Tape the lid shut (so the lid doesn’t pop open)
  6. Carefully lay the washer down on its front side (place some towels or rugs on the floor to protect the washer).
  7. Note:  On the bottom side of the washer, the drain pump is the larger of the two pumps (the recirculation pump is the smaller one).
  8. Remove the drain hose (discharge hose) from the pump.  Loose then clamp and pull off the hose.  Note there is a notch in the hose to line up when you put the hose back on.
  9. Remove the inlet hose to the pump.  Loosen the clamp and remove the hose from the pump.
  10. Open the end cover on the pump and remove the wire connector.
  11. Remove the three 5/16″ screws securing the pump.
  12. The pump should now be free.  Check to see if anything is caught in the impeller.  If you notice any damage, or the pump still does not work then you will need to replace the drain pump assembly.
  13. Re-install in the reverse order.  NOTE:  The new pump includes a shield cover that goes between the pump and tub of the washer to protect the pump from any moisture falling onto it.

LG Washer Hall Senor Location

Posted on July 17, 2011

LG Hall Sensor 6501KW2002A Location

The hall sensor (6501KW2002A) on the LG front load washing machines is located on the bottom back side of the stator.  Unplug the washer, then to access it you have to remove the back panel of the washer, remove the rotor (single large bolt), then remove the stator (6 smaller bolts), unplug the two connectors and remove the ground and you can pull the stator off to access the hall sensor.  The hall sensor just clips on, so you just have to unclip the old one and clip on the new one.

The Hall Sensor is a Rotor Position Sensor (RPS), it tells the computer what position the rotor is in.  The computer uses this to see how fast the drum is spinning along with other things.  When the Hall Sensor goes bad, it will commonly give an LE error (Locked Rotor error) on the washer.  When the sensor goes bad it can cause the drum not to drum properly and even make the washer make some strange growling noises.

If you have any questions, post them in the comments below.  If you need to purchase a Hall Sensor for your LG washer, visit the link below.

GE Washer Won’t Agitate – Air Bell Coupler

Posted on June 28, 2011

Some GE built washing machines use a piece called a air bell coupling to connect the agitator to the transmission.  To access this part you need to remove the agitator, to do this you need to grab the base of the agitator and firmly pull up on it.  There are no bolts/nuts holding it down.  Once the agitator has been removed you will see the air bell coupler, there is a single bolt on the top of it to remove it.  With the air bell coupling removed take a close look at the splines on the inside of it, the splines should go ALL the way through.  If any of it is stripped out, then it needs to be replaced.

Notice in the picture above that the splines only go for about 1/8″ before it strips out.  Past that it is all rounded out on the inside.  That is what will cause the agitator not to move.

Whirlpool Washer Doesn’t Spin Out Well

Posted on June 25, 2011

On Whirlpool built direct drive top load washing machines (also built under the Kenmore, Estate, Roper, Inglis, Kitchen Aid, Maytag, and Amana brand names) the motor is directly connected to the transmission and no belt is used.  When people complain that the washer doesn’t seem to spin out the clothes as well as it used to, it is commonly the transmission leaking grease that causes this problem.  What happens is the seal on the top of the transmission goes bad and leaks grease onto the clutch.  Once the grease gets onto the clutch, the clutch doesn’t have enough friction to spin the tub.  Lighter loads will usually spin out better than bigger heavier loads.
