First of all, it would have been helpful to have two people take the housing off the frame. One to lift and the other to disconnect the hoses that need to come off the pump and the filler.

Second, THANK YOU to another person that posted about prying the pump from the motor and sanding it to accept the new pump. When I couldn't get the pump off the motor due to rust, I thought both the pump and motor were done. But I worked the pump off the motor shaft (I had to break the old pump, but it was toast anyway) and used a wire brush and sandpaper to clean the shaft. When I got the new pump, it slid on like a champ!

I also used the parts list that came with the washer to make sure I got all the parts back together in the right place. Like I said, I took too much apart and didn't pay attention to what I was doing for later reassembly. Even though the parts list that came with the washer is small and not to scale, it helped me put the thing back together.

I got my part when PartSelect promised and I got help here from the website. I will use this company whenever I need an appliance part.
