The most difficult part was removing the washer cabinet. I (Brendan's wife) loosened a screw at the back of the endcap on either side of the console, unhooked it, and hinged it over the back. Next, I disconnected the door sensor and popped out the brass hooks (with a screwdriver) that held the cabinet to the back of the washer. Then, I tilted the cabinet toward me and had my husband pull it off. The pump was perfectly exposed at the front of the motor. It was easy to pop off the clips that held it on, top and bottom, with a screwdriver. Then I disconnected the two plastic hoses (using a pair of pliers on the clamps), having placed a pan underneath to catch the water. Being a newer washer, the pump slid off the motor shaft very easily! I simply hooked up the new pump to the hoses, slid it on the shaft, popped the clips back in place, and had my husband help me replace the cabinet. I reconnected the door sensor, hooked the console in place, screwed in the two screws, and started a load to test the repair before going to eat dinner. Halfway through the meal I remembered the brass hooks and hurriedly stopped the load (just before it went into the spin cycle) in order to hinge back the console and replace them. Whew! Overall, much, much easier than I'd expected.
