I read the other posts that described how to do the repair. There was tell tale black rubber shavings around the drive and motor area.
All you have to do is remove the retaining clips that hold the water pump, remove the hoses(make sure to drain in bucket ect.), remove the wiring harness taking care to leave the capacitor lead intact if the washer has been run in the last 24 hrs to prevent a shock. Remove the two clips holding the motor in place. Remove the four bolts holding the motor base. The coupling is attached to the motor, use a screwdriver ect. to gently pry off the coupling. The old one will likely be round, the new part will be triangular. Same thing. Fit the platic pieces (2) one to the motor and the other to the drive with the rubber in the middle fitting into the allotted holes in the rubber. Reverse the procedure to finish. I saw there was a slightly lower price on a competitors web site by maybe 2.00 dollars. I went with this site because I received help like this I am giving you and want to reward these people for their ingenuity of having this type of forum for others. Please do the same. Doug
