Remove kick plate. Pump is right up front. Disconnect the two wire from the pump. MAKE sure u have removed all water from dishwasher! There will be a little left in the pump but nothing to worry about. Next on the top of the pump there is a hose clamp. Loosen it and remove the hose. Now use pliers to slide the hose clamp off the lower hose that hooks to the dishwaher. Use a flat head screw driver to push the tabs on the white clip over and pull off the pump. Now just do this in the reverse order. Approx time: 10 minutes
