I had to take the complete builtin dishwasher out of the base cabinet in the kitchen.

turn off electricity - circuit box
turn of water supply - turncock under sink
remove kickplate - screw driver
disconnect electric wires - screw driver
disconnect water feed - 5/8 wrench
remove top screws at counter underside - screw driver
pull out dishwasher - hands and son
turn dishwasher upside down - hands and son
got some water on floor - towel to mop up
remove top shower hose ( a rigid pipe with a screw fitting at top and a neoprene coupler at bottom) - hands
The neoprene coupler is the part that failed, it had worn thin due to heavy water flow

reverse process - same tools

voila - no water leak

I replaced a Silverware basket at the same time, which took two mintues as I had to remove the handle from the old basket and press fit onto new one - hands

Parts Select had the parts I needed and delivered in less than 48 hours. That is great service.
