unscrewed 7 torx screws with the impact driver. removed the motor from the bracket. comes out pretty easily. moved wires aside. Pulled the wires off the motor using the pliers- one came off very hard, note where they go, corroded in place. installed the new motor by easily re-attaching the leads. Biggest surprise was that there were 2 motors. I initially replaced the lower one which did not solve the problem. When I replaced the upper, it worked. Not sure of the function of the lower motor. The upper one clearly fits into a slot which seems to attach to the doors.

Opened lower panel to better locate noise ( ran in drain mode to pinpoint ). Removed lower tray & started taking apart , found the discharge pump housing had broken on the inside. Ordered parts , they came in a few days & put back together. All works fine & it runs quieter than before it broke

First replaced the door seal, that slowed it down substantially, but not totally. Next replaced inner door foam insulation strip and that took care of it, no more leaks. There was some corrosion evident after I scraped off the old strip, sanded that smooth with emery sandpaper and then installed new strip. Job done!
