Pretty easy repair ... especially after reading previous owners instructions and experiences. After unplugging unit from power and shutting off water supply - 1) Remove front panel. 2) Remove small tensioner spring. 3) Disconnect power connector to motor. 4) Disconnect two water hoses from pump (place towel underneath to catch water). 5) Remove 4 large bolts holding motor assembly to frame. 6) Slide off spin belt from tub pulley. 7) Remove motor assembly. Pump and belt are attached. 8) Take to workbench. Note orientation of belt wrt pump. 9) Loosen and remove 3 star head screws (I used a drill bit and drill). 10) Slide pump off motor shaft. Mine came off clean and easy. 11) Remove belt. It's good to order the belt with the pump and replace them both. My belt was pretty chewed up and I'm glad I had a replacement. 12) Attach new belt and pump, being mindful of belt route. 13) Re-attach motor assembly, threading belt around large pulley. 14) Attach water hoses and motor connector. 15) Attach belt tensioner spring. Test on a short cycle....if all is well, close it up and you're done. Took me about 45 minutes.
