I tilted the machine on it's back to remove the drive belt. You could feel the friction in the pump when you turned the pulley. I set the machine back down and removed the back cover (4 screws). I removed the two hoses with a pair of pliers. I used a small socket set to remove the three mounting screws. I ordered the pump. I reversed the process to put it back together. It took about 35 minutes to determine what the problem was and to remove the pump. It took about 20 minutes to put it back together.
