For the pump I disconnected the power supply and supply hoses, then I laid the washer down on its back on some towels then disconnected the small and large pump hoses with pliers then released the 2 pump locking tabs with my fingers then removed the old pump then installed the new pump in reverse order, then stood the washer back up then reconnected the supply hoses. For the agitator directional cogs I removed the adgitator cap cover with a screwdriver then removed the upper adgitator assembly then removed the old directional cogs and installed the new ones and reinstalled the assembly in reverse order. Total time 8 min total cost $57 Wifes expression "Priceless"
P.S. The standard older whirlpool and roper washers and dryers are pretty easy to replace most any part. This is the 1st required repair on the washer in over 10 years. The dryer has required a timer and one heating element.
