Unplugged washer from AC. Tipped washer back at about 30degrees and stabilized it (only part of job that was concerning). Removed bottom panel by removing 3 Hex Head Sheet metal screws. Disconnected white and black hoses from pump. Removed three Hex Head Machine bolts holding pump in place. Reached in and disconnected electrical connector.
