Here are some step by step instructions, They seem daunting, but what do you have to loose by trying yourself?
Accessing this part requires you to flip up the control panel by removing two phillips head screws in the front bottom corners of the constrol panel. Pull panel forward and lift to diengage the tabs at the bottom. Flip the panel upwards and it will swing back out of the way. Next you will see one wire connector going into the top of the machine, this is actually your lid switch connector, disconnect it. Now using a flat screwdriver pry the front of the two brass clips towards the rear of the washer (put tip of screwdriver into fron most part of clip and press handle of screwdriver towards rear of machine). The clips should pop off the top pretty easily.
Now you can open the lid and place a hand on the front of the opening and pull the cabinet forward. The entire front and side wrapper will come off the base platform and you can set it on the floor to gain access to the inside of the machine. The bottom front of the tub is where your pump and motor are located.
You will have to un-clip the pump from the motor and pull it off and out of the way, next remove the two screws that secure the motor clips to the transmission bracket. Disconnect the wires that go to the motor, and pop off the lower then upper motor mount clips- hold the motor because it will fall. Now you can replace the coupler. The coupler is pressed on to the motor shaft as well as the transmission shaft. You may need to use a flat blade screwdriver to pry off the old one and a socket larger than the shaft diameter held in place and tapped with a hammer to press the new ones on. Only press them on so far that the shafts are just flush with the coupler openings.
