First, I unplugged the washer then removed the front panel to the washing machine, then the pump cover, then the two hoses connected to the pump, draining them into a small bowl. I removed the ground wire and electrical connections.
Then I removed the two bolts holding down the pump and removed it. I had to pivot the hose connections on the pump to match the old one. Once I did this, I removed the hold-down bracket from the old pump and installed it on the replacement pump.
Getting the hoses clamped back on the new pump was a challenge, and I finally used an automotive clamp on the rear hose. Once the hoses were connected, I bolted the pump back in, reconnected the power and ground connections and replaced the cover.
Overall, it was a fairly straightforward installation and the only challenging part was the hose clamps.
