After finding out how to replace it (on YouTube)the repair went smoother than anticipated. the difficulty was disconnecting/connecting the electrical(BX to electric hook-up to dishwasher) due to the proximity of where it was located(~1" from the floor). Other than that, the unit now works as good as the 1st day when it was bought(~6yrs ago)
