Followed the disassembly instructions given which were quite easy. I will admit I've done quite a bit of my own appliance repair before. VERY easy to replace the pump but unfortunately it wasn't what was leaking after reassembly. The corrugated drain hose was actually the leak source. Guess the smart thing to do would have been to go after the easier and cheaper repair tries first. At least this way, I have a new pump which should now last the life of the unit and it doesn't leak. I was able to find the hose locally for about the same price as PartSelect. However the pump was much, much cheaper even including shipping from PartSelect. Quick shipping too but a little frustrating because the person on the phone wasn't able to tell me what warehouse the pump was coming from. If I knew it was going to be Dallas, I wouldn't have paid for quicker shipping. Overall, very good experience.
