The repair video was great. I decided not to remove the outer cover as there is room to get to the pump if the washer is tipped back. The pump was easy to fix with the exception of the root cause of the failure. There was water getting to the pump shaft and over time it rusted and expanded in the pump housing causing it to split and leak. Once the old pump was removed, a file was needed to reshape the drive shaft to allow the new pump to be installed. Not bad on a 16 year old washer!
