Very easy - veins are held in with one screw, when removed just slide to front of the washer and lift out. Pump assembly is a remote unit complete with drive motor. Take 2 screws out of the water shield, then unplug power to the pump motor and the green ground wire. Slide a cloth under the machine at the area of the pump to catch the water when the hoses are removed. Remove the hose clamp from the rear of the pump and the clamp on the discharge hose. You may be able th remove the hoses now, but if not remove the two bolts that hold the pump to the washer base & then remove the hoses. When you have the pump out you have to change the mounting base to the new pump. Also you may have to rotate the new pump discharge side with the motor (instructions are included with the new pump) - mount new pump, attach hoses, clamps,wires and water cover. Install front door that was removed at the start - pump in in the front right corner after removing the access door in front.
