Hardest part was removing front panel to access the motor.
Removed front panel, Tilted washer with block under the front. Removed belt. Used pully puller to remove damaged pully. Tapped on new pully with 1/2 in socket until shoulder seated on motor shaft. Replaced belt and front panel. Runs as smooth as new now. Additional note: I removed the plastic guard over the top of the motor and held an additional socket on the top of the motor shaft to avoid internal damage to the motor while tapping the new pully on the lower shaft.
