In brief: Rinse/dishwasher

The pump itself isn't meant to be "cleaned"-- only the parts that touch you and touch the milk need to be washed.
Check the manufacturer's instructions, but for most of them the reservoir bottles and the funnel-shaped part that goes against your breast (sometimes called the "shield") can be washed by hand or in the dishwasher. The tubing can be rinsed out by hand.

In brief: Wash it well

Wash each individual piece well with soap and water with dedicated cleaning utensils.
You can also use those handy microwave sterilizing bags to finish the job.
