I have the pump/motor out !!!!(sort of a slide to the right type of grommets - unlike the videos I saw). Found almost $4.00 in change, a couple buttons, golf Pencil and lint. I have found the part for $84.63 from Sears, seems reasonable - seen it for $150.00 on line, so will order.
The motor is attached by what looks like a sliding seal mechanism - hard to turn - worried @ snapping some wires - so any help there would be appreciated. The last step...keep those suggestions coming!
Could not have done this without your time and kindness. Thanks so much!!!
