The dishwasher was disconnected and pulled out. I turned it over onto it's side so I could get down to the drain pump. It looked exactly like the original part and fit just as well. The hoses came right off and then once it was replaced, slipped right back on. It all worked like a charm. The only problem I had was after the repair. The copper water line moved around too much and caused a leak at the connection at the dishwasher. Luckily I tested the line outside before I reinstalled it completely. I just went and bought an $11 flexible hose with new fittings on either end and replaced the copper lines. It went on easier and it sealed tight.

This was a pretty easy repair and I am glad I did it. We were on the verge of just buying a new one, but for a $35 part and a couple hours, it was well worth it.
