First I took off the door and the front of the washing machine. Then, took off the bracket of the soap dispensing bin from the top of the machine. Then lift up the top of the machine, and unscrew the bracket that holds the wax motots, label and pull wires, replace motors and wires and put back together. This is also a good time to clean and dust the interior of the machine. Before replacing, my motor smelled and looked burnt out, instead of paying $300 -$400 to have someone look at it, I investigated and I fixed it for around $30. I hope I get to inspire people to figure things out and save some cash!!
