Tipped the washer on it's back. Removed the three screws holding the bottom cover on. Undid the hoses from the pump to the tub. Checked for blockages. Found a hair/lint ball in the washer tub just inside of where the yellow hose hooks up. This would not allow the floating check ball to seat. Removed the blockage and the washer is working great now. No pump replacement needed.
