just pull it off.on the control panel you will see two screws on the front or back back them out as far as you can then pull the control panel slightly forward then flip it back there are two gold clips on the body of the washer with a screw driver holding the handle pointing toward the back pop the two clips off but remember how they go as it can be tricky putting them back on if you don't then tilt the washer at about 45 degree's and pull it forward disconnecting any wires you see then take the body of the washer off and you can start working you will need a special wrench to get the tub block nut off or a small pipe wrench and hammer will do can get wrench fairly cheap at an appliance parts store now when you put washer cover back on tilt to 45 degrees and look down .the front of washer goes under frame and the sides go on top there are two rectangular slots that fit on tabs on the frame look close and you will see

The first thing to do is get the machine up off the floor onto a base that allows you to slide under machine on your back with a flash light. Make sure whatever you decide to lift machine up onto is very stable and durable. Bricks, blocks, or a utility cart maybe. You need to look under machine to see where the leak is coming from. You want to make sure it is not going to fall on you. The machine is not that heavy, just awkward to lift or move because of it's size. So, you could slide something under each corner, one at a time, or ask a friend to help lift it onto a base. Now you are ready to go. Don't worry, this is really easy.
Get a towel, flashlight, and start machine on a small load with shortest cycle set.(probably delicate). After you start machine, slide under and and try to find where water is leaking from. The pump is going to be a plastic circular shape thing with ridges on outside. Probably dead front center and attached to motor. If water is leaking anywhere from plastic circle thing, then this is your problem. BUT, also follow all the black hoses that are under machine. Sometimes leak can be a cracked hose or loose attachment. That is real cheap and easy. The hoses are attached with metal ring deals. You take a pair of channel locks or big pliers and squeeze them to open. There are 2 or 3 hoses that attach to pump that will need to be removed if this is where leak is coming from. Then, the pump is only attached with metal clips that you pull out to release pump from motor. No tools needed. Take the pump to sears or local appliance shop and I guarantee they will have replacement.
