Traced the leak to the hose. Figured out the name of the part from a combination of the product manual, YouTube, and PartSelect.com's pretty-darn-intelligent parts guides. Used regular pliers to pinch the clamps, and removed the old leaky hose. (Wow, it smelled bad!) Yanked out the debris, then pulled out the coin trap by extending the accordion-like hose, to put in the new hose. Reattaching is really tricky, especially the end that connects to the pump. Make sure that the hose AND CLAMP get all the way onto each hard plastic connectors. A good pair of adjustable vice grip pliers, with half-inch-wide grips, helped a lot! Test the connection by gradually pouring a quart of water into the washer drum. If that holds OK, try washing a load of laundry, watching for any leaks before sealing up the front panel. Good luck!
