5) Removed Pump
6) Inserted new pump attaching the clips to hold it in place.
7) Attached the hoses.
8) Set washer back on all four legs and washed a load of clothes to confirm that the leak was fixed. Actually you could see a discolored spot where the water had been running from the pump shaft seal so it seemed pretty obvious that it was the culprit.
