Remove the outer washing machine housing. Close-up inspection located the leak source. The water pump was removed by popping off the upper and lower metal brackets, then removing it from the two rubber hoses with their pinch clamps. Ordering a new part was easy on your web site, and it arrived in 2 days! I reversed the process, with the smaller hose's pinch clamp hard to manage with simple pliers, but doable with persistence. I LOVE my 23 yr old whirlpool washer, and don't want a newer model, so thanks for making repairs doable for an old lady!
