I already had the dishwasher pulled out (remove the two screws from under the counter holding the dishwasher in place) The drain was located on the right side at the bottom very easily removed after taking out the two screws and removing the tubing. Attached the tubing to the new drain pump, made sure clamps were in place and then screwed the screws back in to hold the drain pump into the bracket. Ran the dishwasher once before pushing it back in to make sure there were no leaks. Had a leak but completely unrelated to the drain pump.....I had to replace the hot water supply line the next day, also SUPER EASY. Pushed dishwasher back in and replaced the two screws into the brackets that hold the dishwasher in. Kind of disappointed that I had to replace these things since the dishwasher is just over a year old, but PartSelect made finding the part super easy and they were by far the BEST PRICE! Thanks again! Only suggestion is I wish that it would have come with directions...but I figured it out pretty well!
