Hi, welcome to Ransom Spares.  In this video we’re going to show you how to replace the pump on a washing machine.

On this Hotpoint washing machine the drain pump is located at the rear of the machine.  They are  located at the bottom of ALL washing machines, however sometimes they are located at the front.  In these instances access can be gained from the bottom of the washing machine.

The first thing to do is remove the drain hose and the sump hose by removing the clips that secure them to the drain pump.

With the hose clips removed the hoses can then be eased off the pump.

The pump will be secured in place with either a clip as is this one, or retaining screws which can be undone from underneath the washing machine.

Now we can remove the pump from the washing machine.

Next we can remove the electrical connections ready to refit them on to the new pump.

We can now refit the new pump in exactly the same way that the old one came out.

And then all that is left is to fit re-fit the hoses and clips to the new pump.
