Determined it was the pump through listening to where the noise came from by taking the back panel off for easy access. The pump is at the back of the unit and was easily accessable. The Motor is on a pivot bracket with springs, so it was easily moved to loosen the belt for removal. After removing the 2 drain hoses with the pliers, the pump came out with 3 screws. Replace the new pump with the reverse procedure. It worked perfectly.

Water on floor under washer. Took off small back cover, squeezed hose, water dripped out. Removed hose and found split in hose.

Posted instructions/videos were on the mark.
Some springs are more difficult to reach, so disconnecting the entire cabinet from the base to gain access from different angles helps a lot to connect/disconnect the springs.

Watched videos on how to replace the hose. Armed with the information I started the process. But the videos were wrong. After removing a bunch of screws and not getting to the hose I removed the inspection panel on the rear,three screws and there was the hose.simple. I wished I had not watched the videos.

Washer would shake and move when spin cycle on.

First thing was to go to PartSelect website to see what others with the same problem did to solve their problem. It was 45% pump and a lot less for the belt. My belt is only a year old so that was out. I ordered my new pump and watched the video on PartSelect a couple of times. I didn't bother to disconnect the water and drain lines. I had my wife hold a plastic 2 quart container under the pump when I pulled the small hose off and didn't spill a drop. Like the man on the video said...the new pump isn't identical but it fits and works fine. Thankx PartSelect!

I replaced the water level switch by taking loose the five screws on the back of the control panel, The clamp on the clear hose, and the two screws which went through the Wtr. lvl. switch. I also moved the wires from the old switch to the new, one at a time. This didn't fix my problem so i replaced the Water valve on the bottom-rear of the machine by removing the screw, the two hoses and the four wires. I removed these one at a time, moving the wires directly from the old valve and attaching them to the new valve.This fixed my problem good as new.
