Since I live in a condo (upstairs unit) flipping the machine was not an easy option. So I was faced with having to get the remaining 2-3 gallons of water out of the drum. I rigged something up and collected 80% of the water, but be prepared for a mess. I was and it wasn't a big deal, just took more time. Once part was removed, I got online to find the part- which ranged in price from $67 at a local appliance part distributor to $49 from SearsDirect including postage. Parts select came in at $37 with freight and the part swapped out perfectly- just 2 clips that hold the pump on and 2 hose clamps (I used slip-joint pliers which works well). I checked YouTube for a video first and lo and behold, there was a video about a whirlpool water pump replacement, which helped some. Job went well and I didn't have to replace a $1200 all-in-one.
