I followed the video directions on PartSelect which were GREAT! Only challenge I had was removing both impellers. The impellers both had cracked where they slid onto the motor shaft, and as a result would no longer rotate. Just holding the upper impeller still with the adjustable wrench while trying to remove the inner screw didn't work, as the shaft was now spun around inside the impeller. Had to break both impellers using a hammer and chisel to get them off the shaft. Once done, I could grip the shaft with pliers and remove the impeller mounting screw from the motor shaft. Then I sponged up any water, and vacuumed out the small bits of metal and plastic from the drain area. After removing all the parts and cleaning up, everything else went back together just fine! Again -- GREAT VIDEO INSTRUCTIONS!
