As noted by other users, I tipped the washer on its back to access the water pump underneath. First I had to drain several gallons of water out...I removed the end of the drainage hose from my main basement drain and placed it into a large bin on the floor and it drained itself. Then I removed the two spring clips from the old pump and took off the two hoses. The pump pulled free easily from the drive shaft. I put the new one on, reseated and reclipped the hoses to the pump, and put the washer upright and it worked immediately. Easy repair...saved hundreds on buying new washer.
