I inspected the pump and checked on-line for instructions . I removed the lower panel and the lower dish rack . Removed the washer head from the top of the pump inside the dishwasher . I next unplugged the wiring after disconnectiong the power supply . Next step was to remove the drain hose from the bottom of the pump . Put a towel under it because it's full of water . Unscrew the nipple from the bottom of the pump to allow clearance so it may be removed thru the top . There are four plastic ears that rotate on the base of the pump . Move them into the outboard position and lift the pump out thru the top. I applied some liquid detergent where the pump seal goes and pushed it back in . Installation is the reverse of removal .
