Turn off the hot and cold water valves, unplug the washer's power cord, and remove the drain hose from the drain. (If the drain hose has cracks, replace it with the same type of hose.) Put a towel or tarp under the supply hoses to catch any water, then remove the hoses with a pair of grooved-joint adjustable pliers.
