My son and I leaned the washer backward and I had my son hold it while I got underneath of it and unscrewed the two hose clamps to loosen the hoses, pulled them off. Then I flipped the two clamps holding the pump in place and the pump came right off and it took about 2 minutes. I ran into a little problem putting the new pump on because I wasn't getting the drive shaft lined up quite right, otherwise the whole thing would have only taken about 10 minutes total. As it was I got the pump mounted, repositioned the clamps and then hooked up the hoses...done! The design is perfect for ease of pump replacement; kudos to the engineers who designed it!
