Loud noise and not cleaning well

My Repair & Advice
After using this site and google to diagnose the problem with my dishwasher (loud noise and not cleaning the dishes well) I ordered this circulation pump and motor assembly. I had found a video on youtube where the person said you could replace it all without taking the dishwasher out. After viewing the video and looking at the part (which I might add I received very quickly- ordered on Wednesday in hand on Thursday), I determined that the video was lacking. So I used the video that is linked with the item on this site. This was MUCH better. It took some time to get the dishwasher out, but with my wife's help we were able to pull the dishwasher out, tilt it on its side and remove the connectors and clips. Getting the pump to sit back in level took a few tries, but once we did it, the clips went into place nicely and it was easy to put back together. The dishwasher is now cleaning really well and no more buzzing noise!
(Side note: because I am not savy with appliances and I failed the number one rule of checking the part you are taking out to see what needs to stay on the new part I accidentally took off the heat shield. This was easily corrected by taking off the heatshield from the old part and putting it on the new part. )
I'm very happy!
