I wasn't able to turn the washer on it's side or front, and instead had to prop it slightly up on cinder blocks due to the configuration of my laundry room. The actual repair was fairly simple, had the clamps supplied been easy to manuever, but they were not. The clamp that goes around the hose from the pump into the inlet valve wouldn't go down around the valve where it was supposed to. I had it too far up, so when I ran the washer, the whole hose popped out and flooded my laundry room. My husband suggested a better clamp, the type that actually opens and you can tighten with a screw system. $2.16 at Lowes. 2nd attempt at repair was successful, and so far no leaks. So...save yourself some time and when you get the replacement pump, take those clamps over to Lowes or Home Depot and buy a clamp that you can open fully, slip over the valve, and tighten as much as you need. If I had that type of clamp to begin with, this project would have taken an hour, tops. And by the way, I'm a 36 year old woman with NO experience fixing appliances, but plenty of experience paying other people too much money to fix things that never should have broken in the first place!
