BECAUSE I LIVE ALONE, THE WASHER IS VERY HEAVY SO I JUST USED SOME SLIDING ROBOTS UNDER THE LEGS OF WASHER SO I COULD SLIDE IT OUT FROM THE WALL BY MYSLEF
AFTER REMOVING THE SMALL PLATE IN THE BACK TO ACCFESS THE WATER PUMP I USED THE NUT DRIVER TO REMOVE THE 3 SCREWS HOLDING THE PUMP IN PLACE, BUT I USED THE PLIERS TO REMOVE THE 2 WATER HOSES FIRST
THEN I MOUNTED THE WATER PUMP BACK INTO PLACE, INSTALLED BOTH HOSES AGAIN
THEN I TILTED IT BACK AGAINST THE WALL WHILE RE INSTALLING THE BELT THEN I PUSHED IT BACK AGAINST THE WALL AND REMOVED THE SLIDERS SO I COULD MAKE SURE IT WAS BACK LEVEL
THIS WAS A VERY EASY REPAIR EVEN IF YOU NEVER FIXED ANY THING BEFORE

THE BELT REPLACEMENT WAS EVEN MORE SIMPLE TO REPLACE BECAUSE THE MOTOR IS SPRINGLOADED SO YOU JUST HAD TO PULL ON IT ENOUGH TO REMOVE IT FROM THE PULLEYS
