First I removed the front door. Then I removed the front of the washer. The wax motor is in the center at the top. Remove the clip that holds it in place. Slide the motor to the left and remove.
However, this was not the problem. The true problem was a plugged inlet screen where the cold water hose is connected. This makes for a long fill time during the rinse cycle, and the machine stops. Clean both of the inlet screens (cold & hot) and the machine works perfectly!
