I unplugged unit and moved washer into room and turned off water supply and disconnected hoses. tipped washer back so I could access motor and pump -- pump is held in place with 2 spring clips. I removed inlet and outlet hoses from pump with my channel lock pliers. I then popped the spring clips holding the pump with a flat screwdriver.
