First disconnected water hoses, put machine on the back, removed hoses from the pump, then removed two metal retainers that hold the pump. Motor's shaft got so rusty, that I could not remove the pump. I spent two days (few hours each day), until I finally was able to snap it off. If that wasn't difficult enough, putting new pump on was even harder. Metal rusted thru, and expanded from long leaking (previous owners probably had this problem for a while). I spent a lot of time filing it down with dremel tool, until finally I was able to attach the pump on the motor. I almost gave up in the process, but I'm glad I didn't, it works great. Motor might fail soon tho due to the rust.
