I disconnected the power, hot and cold water feed lines and the drain line. (Be sure to turn off the water sources before removing lines from machine.) I pulled the machine away from the wall and laid it on its back. Have a bowl or container to collect the water from the drain and some towels for incidental spillage. With a pliers, remove the two water hoses (inlet and outlet) from the pump, right on the bottom of the motor. The pump is held on by two metal clips that are pryed off with a screw driver. The pump pulls straight off of the drive shaft. To avoid frustration when setting the new pump, be sure to align the insert point on the pump with the shaft. The two retainer clips can be reset by hand. Reattach the inlet and outlet hoses, set the machine upright, reattach the drain line, hot and cold water lines and move back into place. Plug the machine in and turn on water sources. Easy-peasy.
