First I unplug electric plug, then turn off water lines & disconnected them. Pulled out the washer where I could easily work on it. Then removed the screws holding the back panel and top control knob panel by separating it from main body. (Spring clips on control panel were a bit tight to pop off.) Once removed back & top, the main body of washer, hinges forward and pulls out and off. Now the pump is accessible, so I remove the two hoses clamps and pull off hoses, and pop off two spring clips holding pump on the motor. Then I slide new pump onto the motor, (line up flat spot on shaft with pump) and pop the spring clips back on and reconnect the hoses and clamps. Put main body, back and top control panel back together the opposite of the way I took it a part. Moved washer back and reconnected water lines and plugged in. No more water on the floor… (Note:) Washer leak happened on Sunday & Monday was holiday of coarse. So I ordered the new pump Sunday online and it arrived by Wednesday. Thank You PartSelect.com.
