Turned off electric at the fuse box and shut off the water. Pulled the dishwasher out and took out bottom sprayer (pull up and twist), filter basket etc. Then put the washer on its back and removed sump inlet and adaptor. This entails removing a couple of hose clamps and 4 bolts that hold sump inlet in place. Replaced with new. Turned over the machine and reinstalled the filter basket and sprayer after cleaning them. Reconnected the water and turned on the power. Machine works like new!!! Total parts cost me less than $50. Repair guy wanted around $300 to do it!!!!
