Scott, here are some general instructions for the work you're doing,



Using a Phillips screwdriver, remove the screw from each side of the console.
Note: Depend on the model of the washer screws could be: 1) in the front of the console; 2) in the back of the console or 3) behind the end caps

2. Pull the console forward and up to remove the tabs on the bottom of the end caps, out of the holes in the top.

3. Lift the console up and lay it on its back.

4. Unplug the harness connector for the lid switch.

5. Insert a flat screwdriver into the front edge of the clip (located on both sides), and pry back. Remove both clips from the holes in the cabinet and slide down the other end of the clips and out the slot in the rear panel.

6. Open and hold the lid while grabbing the cabinet front opening. Be sure when tilting the cabinet that the back edge clears the vacuum break.

7. Tilt the top of the cabinet toward you by pulling on the lid and opening of the cabinet. This releases the back slots of the cabinet from the tabs in the back of the base

8. Carefully pull the cabinet away from the base of the washer and set it aside.
Now you have access to most of the parts.

To replace the drive coupler 

Unplug the washer or disconnect power. To replace the motor drive coupling you have to remove the cabinet (instructions in the file "How to remove the cabinet") and the water pump (instructions in the file "How to replace the pump"). Now you have to remove the drive motor. Disconnect both motor harness plugs (on some models only one might be used). If your drive motor has a capacitor mounted on it, remove the wires from the capacitor, carefully labeling each wire. Using a nut driver (1/4″ or 5/16″), remove two screws which hold the top and the bottom retainers to the front of the drive motor. Using a flat screwdriver unsnap the bottom retainer from the drive motor. Using one hand to support the drive motor from the bottom, unsnap the top retainer from the drive motor. Turn the top retainer 90°and pull it out of the slot in the motor mounting plate. Pull the drive motor straight out. The two plastic motor couplings (one on the drive motor shaft and one on the gear case) are pressed on at the factory. They both will have to be removed by prying or breaking them off. Push one of the new plastic motor couplings on the shaft of the drive motor and the other one on the shaft of the gear case. Place the four rubber grommets on the studs on the back of the drive motor with the large end facing the motor. Place the new rubber isolation coupling on the motor coupling. Line up the holes on the isolation coupling with the studs on the other coupling on the gear case. Replace the drive motor, the water pump and the cabinet

Removing / Replacing drain pump

 After you remove the cabinet at the bottom of the washer, in front (in the right rear corner on 1983 models and older) you’ll see the water pump which is attached to the motor with two retainers. Using a flat screwdriver, unsnap the top retainer and the bottom retainer from the pump. Turn the top retainer 90°and pull it out of the slot in the drive motor. Grabbing the pump with both hands, pull it out of the drive motor shaft. Be careful when removing hoses as they may have water in them. Using pliers, slide the clamps on the hoses off the ports of the pump. Carefully remove the hoses. Hold the new pump with two ports facing your left and the four legs facing the washer. Push the top hose (large) on the top port and the bottom hose on the bottom port on the pump. Line up the flats on the pump bearing with the flats on the drive motor shaft (you can turn the drive motor shaft if needed). Push the pump on until the four legs are pressed up against the drive motor. Install the top retainer in the drive motor slot and turn it at 90°. Snap both retainers over the pump. Using pliers, slide the clamps on the hoses over the ports of the pump.

I'm sure you'll get by with these,

Good Luck,
