After pulling the dishwasher out of the cabinet (2 screws held brackets to the underside of the counter - accessible when the door is open), I removed the broken link pieces, re-attached the springs and routed the link line around the pulleys. No need to re-set the spring tension as it was adjusted properly.

Was able to download a PDF manual from Sears for the dishwasher, so had the necessary information in the event adjustments were necessary.

I bought spare links as the dishwasher was less than 3 years old, and I expect them to fail again.
