Dishwasher would not drain. I confirmed it was the drain pump by starting the DW and pressing reset 10 sec. later. When functioning properly, pump will engage and drain the DW. In my case, nothing except a blinking light for 30 sec. I turned off power at circuit breaker, remove base plate (no need to pull dishwasher), disconnected pump from hose (DW side) and caught water, disconnected hanger hook from DW (requires a little twisting), disconnected on house drain side, marked two sets of wires (1,2), removed wires by shoving nail into coupler (otherwise hard to disconnect), and removed pump. Repeat in reverse order to connect new pump.
