I've replaced the pumps on the washer 3 times now. It works fine for about 1 week then starts to leek where the shafs goes into the pump.  The pump looks like:

Any suggestions?

 

Thanks

Assuming you are buying the W/P OEM  FSP parts this would be odd unless you are getting defective pumps which have a year warranty, so this would not cost you for the pumps after the first one, for a year from the original pump purchase.  If the motor shaft was damaged from the original leaking pump, and if you did not sand it smooth and remove all of the rust, this will damage your replacement pumps and be sure they are on straight with the clips attached.

I never screw around with generic parts.  The one or two shekels you save on the price is usually eaten up by function problems, poor reliability, and dreaded callbacks.
