I am trying to replace the cupler on my whirlpool direct drive washer motor and cant get the water pump to "slide" off the shaft. I have tried to pull it off and now it has a slow drip. any advice on removal and should i replace along with the coupler??

If the pump had been leaking the motor shaft could have rusted making the pump difficult to come off. If the motor had been overheating the pump could be slightly melted onto the motor shaft. Do whatever you have to do to get it off. If damaged in the process, replace it.

thanks for the advice. i baught a new pump with the coupler and installed the coupler.. then i put on the pump, but it wouldn't "slide" onto the shaft so i "tapped" it on. i must have used to much fource because when i filled an ran the washer the pump leaked like a sieve. i am heading out to buy a new pump and plan to take a flat file to the shaft so the new pump will slide on without much fource.

any other advice??

thanks.

** plan to take a flat file to the shaft so the new pump will slide on without much force. **

Emery cloth or sometimes even steel wool would be a much better choice to clean a motor shaft.
