Pulled the refrigirator out and removed the screws holding the cardboard cover in place. DISCONNECTED POWER. Then I removed the single screw holding in place the pumps assembly and pulled it out.
The incoming pump was not working in my case (this is the second time in 3 years it breaks down).
The incoming water hose can be easily disconnected as it screws in. However the hose leaving from the bottom of the pump needs a special technique and some force (squeeze and pull hard). It might be easier to use scissors to cut it altogether and be sure the hose is not damaged.
To reconnect it just push the hose deep into the pump, really easy. The just put the assembly back together, backover and all done.
