After reading partselect.com and a few other web sites, I thught the leak was either a hose clamp, hose, or syphon break.

1. Two screws at the bottom front are removed,
2. Bottom front moved away from the machine unitl the top clips allow it to come off.
3. Remove 2 hex head screws from the lid (look up, use a nut driver or I used a socket.
4. LIft the lid from the front (similar to lifting a car hood)
5. Syphon Break is in the top back right.
6. 4 screws in the back and a hose clamp that connects to the pump.
7. Put it all back together in reverse.

I had considered replacing the hoses while I was at it, but they all looked fine. Suggest you order the Syphone Break "Kit" because it contains clamp, and ring gasket that is between the break and the discharge elbow.

Works Great! Saved myself at least $150 in service call and parts markup.
