My Repair & Advice
I wasn't 100% certain I diagnosed the problem correctly but sure enough to order the part. It turned out great, the replacement was made easy by viewing YouTube videos about doing the part replacement. The one hang up I had was replacing the 3 clips that hold the unit in place at the bottom of the dishwasher, they are easy to remove and hard to put back in--somewhere it said it would be hard. I ended up having to remove the wire to the heating element in order to get enough access to get one clip in--some instructions on this would have helped. Overall, if you can install a dishwasher yourself then you can do this repair. I now have a dishwasher that is almost like new since the whole pump and chopper assembly is now new. I saved a bunch on labor I'm sure.
