I have a Fisher & Paykel washer. It is leaking water through

This answer was rated:

I have a Fisher & Paykel washer. It is leaking water through the bottom. The water drips down from the motor and the little agitator fan. Can I fix this? What part do I need/

Repairman1981 :

This is just a leaky drain pump seal

Repairman1981 :

You should UNPLUG immediately, and stop using it until fixed

Repairman1981 :

The pump is around 100 bucks, and if you keep running it and blow the board you are looking at doubling that number and then some

Repairman1981 :

However the pump is VERY VERY easy to change. You just lean back at a 45 degree angle and there is a tab you lift, and rotate the pump out

Repairman1981 :

This is all you have to do, then rotate the new one back in

Repairman1981 :

VERY easy takes me less than 2 mins

Customer:

How do I get the seal?

Repairman1981 :

You replace the whole pump (the seal is built into the pump)

Repairman1981 :

420325P is the part number

Repairman1981 :

You can call fisher paykel directly

Repairman1981 :

It's available from www.letstalkservice.com/fisherpaykelparts.html for 99.99

Repairman1981 :

I think it's a BIT cheaper from fisher and paykel directly

Customer:

Thanks!

Repairman1981 :

No problem, lemme know if you need anything else. Thanks!

Customer:

Get some sleep! God bless you!

Repairman1981 :

Repairman1981 :

About to head off to bed, was just about to sign off when I saw your question come in

Customer:

Goodnight from me.
