Care to share with us how you go about doing that?

Don't you have trouble getting the pump and motor off without removing the cabinet first?

Not a moron, you just did not know any other way.

I think you will find it a lot easier to replace them couplers now that you know a better way. :)

I like to try and educate people myself.

There are so many things people can learn to do for themself with a little extra education. :)

The thing that frys my weenie is when some aszhole tells you:
ancient chinese secret OR if I told you I'd have to kill you. Some folks think their shi+t dont stink and they need to give you just enough info to make you hire them to repair your sad asz products. My big old butt get burnned up everytime. Good looking video, maybe someday i will be able to watch it. My lame PC is lucky to get the AJ website, let alone the wiz vidsDang it. Debbie does dallas I do not care for. A good old washer repair video will brang the best outta me.
May the hinges of our friendship
        never grow rusty.

That's true. I leave the hoses on. Remove the clips. Then set the pump a little to the left and hook the pump under the front of the frame to keep it out of the way.
