I pulled washing machine away from the wall . Unplugged unit. Turned off water and disconnected hot and cold water line. Laid washing machine on its side. Disconnected inlet and outlet lines from pump using a pair of pliers to squeeze hose clamps to enable removal of hoses. FLASHLIGHT is needed to view area. Pop off spring clips with a small screw driver. It's a little difficult getting hand back to remove back spring clip. Water pump has fitted stand offs that let the pump be installed and removed very easily and also enables proper installation orientation. Make sure you have a pair of gloves on to avoid sheet metal cuts during removal and installation.
