If the drain valve is plugged, I use a piece of 1/2" copper with a hose fitting soldered to one end and suck the water out through the hot side pipe fitting.
You need to cut the pipes off of course but you'll need to do that anyway if you're replacing it. Don't use the cold side, the dip tube won't let you shove the pipe into the tank You could siphon or use a little water bed pump.
