i've got them down to 10 minutes, but here goes. remove the bolts going into pump, but do not remove pump . remove the transmission bolt with the spacer and this is where you push the belt through and around pulleys.. this is a little more difficult. you will need to take off the yoke spring and move the transmission pulley around until the spin control magnet catches for spin. it will begin to take pressure off of clutch. you will need a long screwdriver or something like it to apply pressure down on the clutch plate this is to allow to to slip the belt thru the bar the spring came off of and under it.. you can then pull the belts around all pulleys and put everthing back in its place and your done...

Your washer should be a direct drive unit, it has no belt. If you hear the motor running but nothing is happening you probably have a broken motor coupler. The coupler is about $10.
Pop off the trim pieces on each end of the console.
Remove the two screws that hold the console to the cabinet and flip the console back.
Remove the two clips that hold the cabinet to the rear panel of the washer and unplug the lid switch harness. The cabinet will tilt forward and slide off.
Remove the clips holding the water pump and move it to the side.
Unplug the wires from the motor and remove the clips holding it.
You will see the motor coupler.
Make sure you can turn the gearcase shaft with a pair of pliers so it is not locked up.
Post back and let me know what you find or if you need any help.
