I moved the washer into the garage so I woud have space to work.Take off the front pannel and remove the v-belts.To remove the motor I had to spray some WD-40 on the motor mount scerws they were very rusty: soak them down real well.I remove the motor and the plate from the washer, besure to take the springs off the mounting bracket it will make the job alot easier.Remove the drive motor from the bracket and the pulley from the shaft. Reassemble all the parts and the job is finished(the wiring is pretty straight forward just reattatch the harness and plug into the motor.
