Way to complicated. Unplug the machine. Tilt it back 45 degrees. The whole bottom of the machine is wide open. Unplug the blue and black wires. Loosen the three screws that hold the motor. Remove the motor and put in the new one. Tighten the three screws. Attach the two wires. Put the washing machine back on 4 legs. Plug in the machine.

Time to replace is about 15 minutes. I'm 74 so it takes that long.

Hi Ronald! I'm glad that worked out for you! Speedy too!

On the machine that we are showing (and many LG machines) the drain pump is hard to remove in the way that you describe because it is located with the end of the motor facing toward the outside of the machine. Access to the three screws holding the pump motor to the pump body is difficult because of this. Tilting the machine as described (45° to the rear) also subjects a number of components of the machine connected to the tub to forces in a direction that they don't normally encounter. That's why LG washers have shipping bolts that are removed (and saved) before placing the machine in service.

How do I remove the small, black, filter pump hose? I already have everything else apart.

TJT - Replica

When you remove the pump body, the hose (I assume you are talking about the little drain hose) will go through the hole in the washing machine's frame. Remove the little end cap/plug and pull it through. Just remember to put it back when you replace everything. If you are talking about small black hoses connected to the circulating pump (our machine in the guide didn't have those). they are just secured with clamps.

Bill Gilbert -

To be more clear, you don't have to disconnect the small drain hose; it will come out with the pump body.
