Followed instructions on site, remove two screws holding contol panel and flipped up, disconnect water level tube(clear plastic), pry off two metal clips holding shell to back(on top,under control panel), remove shell. Water pump in front, bottom, two hoses. Remove hoses, pry off two metal clips
securing water pump. Water pump stuck on. Soaked with penetrating oil and let sit awhile. Reach behind pump and pry off. Turn impeller on new pump to align with flat sided shaft with finger in where hose connects. Slide pump onto shaft, tap lightly to get all the way in, put clips back on pump(tight), and hoses back on. Put shell back in place, clips back on top, water level hose back on panel, panel down, screws back in. Run machine, watch for leaks(water on floor). Had never done this before, this site made it easy. Thanks.
