Hardest part is removing unit from under counter. Degree of difficulty will depend on how plumbing and electric are connected to unit. In my case the supply hose, electrrical cable and waste hose all had plenty of slack and unit only has to come out about 20" to get to top tub connection.

The leak was on the rubber connection that attaches the hard plastic hose to the pump under the tub. That attaches with a standard automotive type screw band clamp. The other end goes into the top of the drum and atttached into the uppper spray arm with a plastic nut (I replaced the rubber washer when changing this side just to be safe.)

Level of difficulty for me was easy but if you are not familiar with dishwasher installation and connections, could be time consuming. And obviously had to discern where leak was before ordering parts. I had taped it with black electrical tape as a temporary fix to make sure that was the part that was leaking. It was not obvious as it was just a small pinhole.
