Removed the dishwasher from under the counter (electrical and plumbing as well) and replaced the links and pulleys. The link kit was exactly what was required to fix the problem. I also reduced the tension on the new links by moving the new pulleys to the least tension position. The new link kit pulleys should have been part of the original design. It took longer to remove/replace the dishwasher than to replace the links. Poor original design led to premature failure in 4 years - poor Whirlpool quality especilly for a high end KitchenAid appliance.
