Being 77 years old an use a wheel chair it took longer than when I was younger but even so it all went well. I removed top control panel, unplug wire connectors, pulled case away so I could lay machine back, remove pump retainers, motor retainer bolts then retainers. then pried coupling apart and installed new one which is better made with metal insert so I had to drive it on, the new switch was an unplug connector and ground screw simple thing then put case back on, snap clips in place, hook connectors up & screwed controls down. Thanks
