    Thanks for getting back to me. The cabinet is off and machine is going through the cycle. I only see a green, tan and grey wire. I'll try connecting the tan and grey since they look like they are already spliced and joined. I'll let you know how I make out!'Thanks again!

    IT was the pump! Looked like stress cracks in the plastic . Hopefully it will be as easy to install as it was to diagnose! Thanks again! YYYYYEEEEEEEEEHHHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAA!

Great question, here is your answer. You have to open the console (usually 2 screws in the front or back where the console meets the top of the washer) Pull the bottom of the console towards you and swing it up. Remove the 2 brass colored clips underneath by pushing down with a large screwdriver at the point where it goes into the top of the machine and press down while simultaniously pushing towards the rear. Now there will be a connector with a white, green and gray wires in it. Unplug this connector. Now tilt the top of the washer towards you (the top, front and sides all come off as one assembly) The washer will fill with water, but you will not be able to drain it unless you install a wire between the white and gray wires on the machine side. ( I would do this with the unit un-plugged and make sure you have a good connection by spinning it before you add any water. Likely the leak will be coming from the pump (white peice of plastic in the lower front with 2 black hoses going to it). If so, pry the two clips off the pump with a screw driver. Put the pump over a bowl to catch any remaining water. Squeeze the clamps on the hoses with a pair of pliers to remove them. A replacement part is availible at a local appliance part store or on line from the manufacture's web site.

Sounds like the clutch may be slipping. Does it go into a high speed spin?
