Depending on the pump you have, you'll need to remove the seal plate from the wet end and remove the impeller before you can remove the motor.

What does error code F7 E1 mean on a whirlpool VMW washing machine

This code indicates a motor speed sensing error, the motor can not achieve the correct speed for the cycle selection.
Have the shipping bolts been removed?
This error code indicates that the motor is having difficulty turning.
All four (4) shipping bolts and the plastic spacers must be removed from the rear of the washer before you operate it. Each unit is shipped from the factory with four bolts, which are designed to secure the washer during shipping. Failure to remove all of the shipping bolts, and the four plastic spacers that are with them, can result in noise, vibration or error codes. See your Installation Instructions for details on how to remove the shipping bolts.

The belt broke on this do I install it?

Unplug the power cord or shutting off the circuit breaker. Remove the belt guard loosen the four bolts that hold the motor to the compressor frame. The holes in the frame are slotted to move the motor for belt tensioning. Remove the old belt by pushing the motor toward the compressor. Place the new belt on the pulleys and hand tighten the four motor bolts. Align the two pulleys with each other. Apply a little tension on the V-belt. Place the bar at the base of the motor and push the motor back using the frame of the compressor as the leverage point & deflect the belt downwards with your finger. You should have approximately ½ inch of free belt deflection. Tighten all four motor mounting bolts & check the deflection of the V-belt and the alignment between the pulleys again. Realign or re-tension as necessary. A correct fit will ensure proper operation of the air compressor. Replace the belt guard on the air compressor and reapply the power. Check the belt movement through the guard and for proper operation of the compressor by following the manufacturer's instructions.

How do you get the front plastic parts parts off of a pump to be replaced

You might be talking about disconnecting the plastic pipes. I would take a saw and cut the
pipes where there is enough free space to install plastic unions.

Or you might be talking about leaving the pump body in place, and removing the motor
with the impeller. There should be four stainless bolts holding the motor to the pump body.
Remove the four bolts and slide the motor back..

Hope this helps !!

How do i replace the belt

There are four bolts holding the motor to the chassis. Remove the four bolts, slide you hand back along the belt and released the belt from the transmission pulley. Once this is done, turn the motor and pump upside down and you will see the three star screws that hold the pump on. Remove the screws and slide the pump off. If the pump is stuck you will have no choice but to break the pump off and replace it.
