Vacuum all water possible from the tub. Remove the front panel to provide access to the pump. remove the pump from the washer, but leave the hoses attached lift the pump into the bucket, and remove the clamp from one of the hoses. clip the hose partially off the fitting and drain water from the rest of the tub and hoses. It may be necessary to reattach the hose during this draining process to keep from overflowing the bucket. When the lines are empty, remove the other clamp and remove the hose from the pump. Be sure to disconnect the pump and check the hoses. I have found a sock in the tub drain line twice, which either stopped the line, or blocked the impeller. replacement of the pump is the reverse.
