Our 10 year old washing machine pump motor has a small leak around the shaft.
1. Download Fisher and Paykel service manual from the web.
2. Order new pump  from ebay (from ASAP spare parts) for $36.30.
3. Undo old motor and put new motor in – I DIDN’T EVEN NEED A SCREW DRIVER – It just had a plastic tab to flip and the pump motor screwed out with 1/3 turn.


Diagnose leaky pump: 15 min

Find and order part: 30 min.

Time for part to arrive: 4 days.

Undo old pump and install new pump:  5 min.

Thanks Fisher and Paykel.
