The repair was very easy and went smoothly. Here's an overview of the steps I followed: I used a shop vac to remove as much water as possible from the dishwasher tub. I turned off the water supply to the dishwasher and then removed two screws that connect the dishwasher unit to the cabinet/counter top. I also removed two screws at the bottom of the dishwasher to remove the dishwasher's kickplate. After that I pulled the dishwasher out and uplugged the unit then tipped it on it's side to gain access to the pump assembly (it's at the bottom of the unit). The drain pump assembly was held in place by two screws and a metal band that connects the pump to the rubber/plastic drain area. Also there are two wire leads needed to be unplugged. I took a picture of the unit before removing anything so I could have a record of what it all looked like assembled. Then I took off the old pump and put on the new and put it all back together. Turned the water back on and ran a quick rinse and spin cycle and all was well! Dishwasher drained properly and there were no leaks. Easy and I saved a bit of money doing it myself.
