Hi my name is ***** ***** I have been in the plumbing field for 20 years. I will be glad to help you today. Sorry for the wait. Have you disconnected the old waste pipe from the machine or under the sink? Have you removed the dishwasher or is it still in place?
Does it not connect on the bottom of the machine? You should be able to access the connection by removing the access plate at the bottom, front. Right below the door. No?
It is hard to see unless you get right down there but there are two screws holding the plate on. Either that or just tip the dishwasher on it's side since you have it out already.....but any water still in it will spill out if you do that.
The connection for the drain hose should be held on by a hose clamp.
That panel should come off. If you have removed the screws then there are two plates. One is not very tall and the other kind of slides up in behind the door a bit and has insulation glued to it. Are you sure it will not come off with a little jiggling?
Sorry for the delayed response. I was off on a service call.
The very front at the very bottom? Held by two screws? That other plate should come out also.
I will open this up to other experts and opt out. I think this will go much faster for you with an expert that is online at the same time as you. My responses are much too delayed to get you a timely answer because I have not been online at the same time. No need to respond and certainly no need to rate my service. Another expert should be responding by morning. Thanks, Mike

OK you have to take off the top and then remove the left hand side panel which will give you access to the inside connection, from memory it connects directly into the water tank on the left. Its then just a case of removing the damaged one and replacing it with the new one.
OK no worries, would you now kindly rate the information given by selecting from the star rating system at the top of the page, once done feel free to come back to me tomorrow if you run into difficulties as all information requests are free of charge once this rating is received.
