The Academy's resident Professor of LG-ology, john63, tiptoes us thru these tulips...
Remove door gasket outer CLAMP and peel back GASKET into stainless steel tub
Remove lower left pump clean-out strainer COVER.
Remove a single phillips screw---and pull out the plastic HOUSING that is part of the pump clean-out strainer
Looking at the pump clean-out strainer (at floor level) you'll see 2 phillips screws above the strainer handle---remove both screws
Cut a section of 2x4 wood---approximately 5 to 6 inches length
Place the 2x4 wood block between the TUB and the FRONT COVER of the washer---this will give you additional space to access the DRAIN MOTOR---by keeping tub assy pushed rearward.
Reach down to the PUMP ASSY---using your finger---find the RELEASE TAB and depress it. This allows sliding the entire
PUMP ASSY to slide away and be turned by hand.
There are 3 screws which secure the DRAIN MOTOR to the pump housing---remove them and pull off the drain motor.
Re-install & test washer.
NOTE: One or two of the DRAIN MOTOR screws can be accessed from the *hole* where the STRAINER was located.
TIP: Wear PVC-coated work gloves
