First disconnect power supply, close both water supply valves, move machine away from wall and tilt machine back so that front of machine was about 12 to 14 inches off the floor. Place bucket under pump and hoses, wrap plastic around electric motor to prevent water from getting in motor. Disconnect hoses allowing water to drain in bucket, remove two retainer clips on pump, and pry pump off motor shaft.
