What a mess!
Unplug the unit, disconnect the hot and cold water supply lines. Remove the drain hose from the wall and slide the unit away from the wall.
It's easier if you lay the unit on it's side, but not required.
Using the flat blade screwdriver, or a 1/4" nut driver, remove the 8 bolts that hold the back cover and lay that aside.
Locate the leaky pump. There are 2. One is the supply pump. One is the waste drain pump and they are not interchangeable.
Using the pliers, slide the spring clamps off of the 2 hoses connected to the pump.
Using a phillips-head screw driver, remove the 3 screws holding the pump to the unit.
Hinge open the cover to the electrical supply for the pump and pull out the connector. It only goes on one way, so reassembly is not an issue.
Throw pump across the street.
Take new pump and reverse instructions above.
