Craftsman 7.0 Power Washer removing water pump

I have a power washer where the water pump has locked up. How do I remove the water pump to see if we can use lime away and free it up? It was started up with the water not hooked. I think this caused the water pump to seize up. I can't find any manuals or instructions on how to remove and check this pump This is a 2900 psi unit
Thanks

What model is it? Craftsman has a whole lot of different pressure washers.

Lime away won't do anything to free up a pressure washer pump that seized from overheating. It will need to be replaced.

On my Cman 2600 psi (Honda GCV 160) I'm pretty sure that it has a sealed pump. I've heard those can not be taken apart but would instead need to be completely replaced should they fail.

That number is no good according to sears. Double check it, I think you are missing something.

I don't know which pump you have without the number, but usually they are just bolted on and will come off easily.

You should be able to see the 4 bolts holding it onto the engine. Take them out, pull it off. That's it.
