    Turn of the blue plastic headed tap unscrew the blue water feed hose.

    The grey flexible hose is the waste so remove from the white plastic pipe and you may need to re-angle that spigot upwards to avoid a leak or cap it

    When you turn the valve off and remove the hose , get. 3/4 cap and seal and put it on inplace of the pipe you have removed . ( same as the other valve )
    If you are replacing the dishwasher straight away dont bother .

    So in effect after the blue headed valve has been taken off, the hole must be plugged with the 3/4 cap seal. Sorry for being thick.
    What about the grey waste pipe bit?

    grey waste pipe

    do you see the chrome clips with the bits sticking up

    to remove these are a bit more trickey

    you need to squeeze the to tabs together and at the same time remove the grey flex hose

    then get a plastic bag with no holes in and cable tie it around the rubber / pipe
