It was very simple. My neighbor, whom I call Tobias Maintenance & Repair, did all the work, while I watched with a glass of Jack Daniel’s. The pump twists into place and is held by two small bolts. It's very easy to get to and nothing else needs to be taken apart or disconnected. Used some silicon sealant to hold in place after replacing the pump and all seems good again. The pump was the problem and the dishwasher now runs fine.

However: The Float Assembly I thought I ordered was not the one I received. Also the pump drawing did not indicate that I would not require O-Ring Drain Pump, so that was ordered. My request for return information has been ignored. Please send me $8.80 and I’ll call it even.
