Repairing the agitator was easy.
Removed the upper housing and 1 bolt.
Change the ratcheting mechanism, reinstall, done.
Changing the pump was a bit more involved.
Had to remove the shell.
The old pump was rusted on to the motor
but with the help of some PB Blaster, screwdrivers and a hammer I was able to get it off.
No more leaks on the floor and the clothes actually agitate instead of remaing stationary.
For less than a Plumbers 1 hour of labor I was able to repair it myself and will probably get another 5 years out of this washer. Will it ever die?
