Tipped washer backwards and removed belt from all three pulleys. Stood washer upright again and removed back panel around pump(4-screws)Removed drain hose from house drain and emptied excess water in the pump into a bucket. Removed the hoses from the drain pump then removed the three bolts holding the pump in place. Removed damaged pump and replaced with new drain pump. Reassembled in reverse order. Once the pump cover was replaced, tipped machine on its back, replaced the belt onto the three pulleys and promptly returned machine to its upright position and ran a test load of laundry! Success! Works great!

Removed front and rear covers, replaced drive belt, tub hose and pump. simple operation. Washer still has some leakage not as bad as original leak. Think I have main tub seal problem. Going to check all hose clamps and run again. If the main seal is problem I will be forced to buy new as the parts cost and difficulty of replacement will be the important factors.

First unplugged washer. Found clips on front of machine and lifted the lid back. Took out two 5/16" screws and removed the front panel. Tilted back the washer slightly and took off the drive belt underneath. Started removing the 6 springs with visegrip pliers that support the tub. Then removed the hose on the back left, no pliers needed. Then used pliers to loosen the clip holding the drain hose on the bottom of tub. Moved the clip down, then took off hose. There will be water in the hose, be ready with towel. Watched the video for snubber installation.

Lay the washer on it's side and remove the drive belt. Set back upright. Pry top cover up. Use a small flat bar and try not to damage the porceline. Two hex head screws (one on each side by the tub)holds the frone panel on. Remove those. Panel can now be tilted forward and removed. Pump is on right side. remove the two hoses and save the clamps. remove the three hex head screws holding the pump. Install the new pump and reassemble. Pretty easy.

After inspecting the brake and installing the new pulley/bearing kit the washer still would only spin slowly. Discovered that if the washer agitates at all in the spin cycle then the transmission is shot. So washer was replaced with a new one.

Watch the videos on it about replacing the snubber ring. Do not remove the whole assembly just loosen enough to get old snubber out and new one in, or you will find it very difficult to get the brake/clutch assembly back together Also I used a 2 x 4 scrap to push and hold the the barrel while removing the six springs. Wear long sleeves as the metal on the washing machine panels will cut you very easily. Belt was just sliding it over the pulley. One other recommendation is take a pictures before and while you are taking it apart for verification of reassembly.
