Overall it was very easy to change out the pump. Take off front cover, the pump is located right in the front which makes it easy to find the hoses that needs to be removed. Remove the dishwasher hose that attaches to the drain pipes by loosening the screw. With a set of pliers pinch the metal clip to loosen the hose attach to the drain from the dishwasher. ******sidenote, before completing this, be sure to check the dishwasher hose for any clogs.. I found this out after replacing the pump and it ended up being a clog in the middle of the hose and not the pump. You can do this by taking off the part that leads to the sink drain and place it inside the sink and block the opening with a rag or something. Start the machine, let it run for 30 seconds so it can fill up with some water and then stop the cycle. This will force the dishwasher to empty the water which will push out the clog. (Make sure you have the hose facing the sink) It will take a good 20-30 seconds after to get the debris out of the hose. I hope this helps
