Friday night removed back, Electronic controls, and remaining cabinet. Inspected direct drive pump and it was damp. Removed part. Total Time 20 minutes to this point. Spent next 45 minutes on-line trying to order the correct part and get it as soon as possible. Paid for overnight delivery, but it showed up Monday. Installed part then re-assembled Washer in reverse order. Total Time 30 minutes. Tested the Washer. Noticed water was not filling. Turned valves back on. All worked well. Washer is used several times a day. It's now 2 weeks later and still running well. I'm very mechanically inclined and I have an electronics background so it seemed very easy to me. I think anyone could do this, but it may take more time to determine how to disassemble and reasseble by researching it on the internet.
