My Repair & Advice
Removed dishwasher, laid two large towels on tile floor, laid dishwasher front door down on tiles, removed white access door (two screws) on bottom to expose hose connection. Then on left side facing front of dishwasher I had to remove door return spring from frame, two more screws and a metal cover. Once this cover was removed it exposed a plastic clamp that I opened up, took the drain hose off the hook at the top of the tub. I then removed the one end of the hose that was attached to the sump with a metal clamp (channel locks work well for this step) and removed the attached end from the washer. There was a plastic clamp that holds the hose in the rear of the dishwasher that very easily snaps off. At that point the hose was completely removed. Install is the reverse, but watch that plastic clamp that holds both loops of the drain hose, it is a burger to get clamped back together.
