Hi

Ok on these pumps theres a small plastic tab on the white pump chamber were the pump is attched to.

You need to get a pair of pliers and bend this tab out a little and it will allow you to twist the pump fully off.

What i do is pull the washer out and lean it backwards against a walll.
Then lay down and look under it. You will see that tab on the bottom of the camber there were the pump is attched to the white chamber.

So try that and that will allow you to remove the pump from there.

Let me know how it goes.

Hi

Can you see were the pump is attched to the white chamber?

Are you looking at it from underneath?

I can see where the white chamber is, I had been trying to unscrew it but unfortunately i only have a very small set of pliers so I could not do what you suggested!
