Very easy repair. Removed the Cabinet-two screws. Removed the Agitator-one Bolt. Removed the Water Pump and Motor-4 clips. Un bolted the Transmission Assembly-3 bolts. Pulled out the transmission and drive shaft as a whole and then removed and replaced the old clutch. Reassembled useing a new drive coupling because why not! I'm in there so getherdun! So easy and the Appliance guys wanted between 200-300 bucks for this simple repair.
