Hang with me on this. Gas burner on 10 year old dryer went out. I'm not touching that. Creepy repair guy that made wife really nervous paid a visit, ordered parts, cancelled appointments, and days later returned to finish up($140). In meantime, dishwasher started pooling on floor. Had guy look at that when back for the dryer. He ordered new door deal, and (days later) returned and installed that, But the pooling was only worse. That weekend I look at it myself. One pump housing screw (and a big piece of broken glass)was sitting on bottom of unit. Other housing screws were loose. The rubber outlet gasket/seal was sticking way out at missing screw. The obvious problem. Ordered new plastic spray arm and rubber gasket parts (cheap), which arrived faster than repair guy. In maybe 10 minutes I removed spray arm and other pump housing screws, was shocked by extent of wear on old parts, dropped the new rubber seal into its slot, and replaced the lower spray arm using new plastic seal and ring parts. Easy. Fixed. Dishwasher works better than ever. And I even have (an expensive)new seal on dishwasher door. Grrr. Easy part identification, helpful videos, super fast shipping. PartSelect is where I go first from now on.
