What I do is go ahead and remove the cabinet(pictures coming), I then rig the lid switch where I can observe the washer going through the motions (yes you can run the washer with the cabinet off). I will say this: most of the time the pump develope's a leak over time due to wear, sand, and soils causing abrasions on the plastic pump bearing. Nothing could be easier to replace than that pump. You need only some pliers and a screwdriver.
This IS the exact pump you need at a very GOOD price!
now here are some photo's and a repair manual or 2 in there somewhere: Bookmark this page for future reference.
Fearless leader AJ has an equally good price along with a free downloadable washer manual:Direct drive pump from AJ's store!
