Greetings, I am trying to replace the drain pump on my bosch dishwasher. The problem is the old pump has 4 metal prongs that run horizontally with 2 clips attached at positions 2 & 3. Position 2 has a clip with 2 attached wires and position 3 has a clip with just one attached wire. The replacement part has only 2 prongs that are positioned vertically and it looks like it accepts some type of wiring harness. I talked to Nancy in live chat and she said a connector was required and directed me to the part. It's a bummer that I did not learn about this necessary item when I placed my original order for the pump. She was unable to instruct me about how to position the 2 clips in the connector. Should the clip with the 2 wires be placed in the top position and the clip with one wire on the bottom or vise versa, or does it matter? I just don't want to put everything back together and have to take it apart again to make changes.
ANSWER Hello Sseibt,
The motor is not polarized so the wires can connect to either of the two connectors. The pump will not no the difference and will operate normally either way.
