Just looked difficult. The left one isn't obstructed, like the one on the right is. It was tough to get out. Luckily the right one was much less resistant. And yes there was some wear I couldn't see until it was all the way out.
Great news! Been doing laundry catching up. She's back to her old self.
Have not done the boot yet, lazy me wanted to be sure board was only problem (and vibration damper) So used some electrical tape.So far it's held up through 11 loads!! I put a leak detector inside the machine, so any future leaks will not go unnoticed. I will do the boot soon, just have to get past recent Fibromyalgia flare-up. I'll need to find (I keep too much stuff) or buy copper tubing to fabricate needed clip removal "tool".
Question: the water pump. When I ran the washer the first time, the front access panel was open. The water pump seems louder than I recall. Do
they get noisy before failing?
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE YOU GUYS
my husband is way happy too
already bragging & telling everyone about this fabulous empire you've all made.
