First I removed the center cover of the tub, then removed the bolt that was underneath it.
I then tipped the washer back far enough that it wouldn't fall forward.

Next I removed the two hoses connected to the motor/gearbox assembly.
I then removed three bolts that hold the gearbox/motor assembly to the bottom of the tub and slid it down.
The next step is to separate the gearbox from the motor. To do this I removed the spring clips that hold the water pump to the motor, and then the spring clips that hold the gearbox to the motor.
The broken coupling between motor and the gearbox was then removed and replaced with the new one.
Next, put every thing back together.
