Is the unit on a pedestal?

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
I tried doing that before, going thru the back panel but could not see nor reach the pump. I even tried laying down the washer on its back side to see if I can do it from the under side. Was able to unhook the drain hose attachment but could not remove the pump. I need a very specified step-by-step answer to my question.

Remove the door on the drain cleanout. The tray over the cleanout will have 1 screw in it. Remove the screw and remove the tray. There will be 2 screws holding the pump on. Remove those. Lay the washer on its back(no pedestal) and reach in to the pump. On the floor of the washer, right behind the pump, there is a push tab. Push the tab down and pull the pump backwards. This will allow the pump to move back completely and make it easier for you to reach. If there is a pedestal on the unit you will have to reach in through the back panel to get to the pump.
