Removed lower spinner and bracket tube in rear of washer. Unscrewed the four screws that hold the pump cover. removed pump cover then unscrewed the two screws that cover the water intake port of the pump. One cover is hard to lift out. The best way is to use an L shaped tool like an Allen wrench and lift it out. Once thats out you see the filter with the cutter blades. Be careful those blades are sharp and will cut you. Removed old filter and installed new one. Make sure you line up the edges. Its not completely round but instead has small cutouts on each side that help it fit tight in the lower piece. Once you get yours you'll see what I mean. Take your time fitting the cover back on as the filter tends to move a bit and it can be difficult to line it up.
