Replaced the Piston and Nut Assembly! Removed rear strainer by removing four screws. Unscrewed the assembly using a large handled pliers for leverage, cleaned the threads and installed the new one with my hand. I then put the strainer back in using the same four screws. I also replaced the Lower Spray Arm with Tower because a tab on the assembly was broken. I used the same long handled plier to carefully turn the assemble out. I put the new one in by using only my hand to screw it in.

I saw water on the floor and investigated to see that it was actually running down the side of the dishwasher. Further investigation and removeal of a cover on top shwoed the water was leaking from the hose that runs through the top of the dishwasher.

I looked on Part select at the model number of the dishwasher. I looked at the diagram of the diswassher and the hose. I read some of the repair stories. And became sure the upper hose was my problem and was armed with the ability now to fix my machine. Thanks PartSelect

WENT ON LINE TO ORDER NEW PUMP. WEB SITE SHOWED "PARTS WHICH REPAIRED THIS PROBLEM AND NUT AND VALVE HAD VERY HIGH % AS THE FAILED PART". I THEN REMOVED NUT AND VALVE AND WAS ABLE TO SEE THAT IT WAS WORN AS THEY DESCRIBED. THIS WAS A VERY EASY REPAIR AND WORKED PERFECTLY.

Dishwasher is 22 years old and I'm 80 years old so it took longer, about 3 hours. After removing, turned upside down and removed old pump-motor assembly and replaced with new following directions [which took a little while to figure out; my assembly was quite a bit different from the replacement pump-motor]. Pleasantly surprised at how quiet the dishwasher now runs. Normally I would replace this old an appliance, but this unit has provision for inserting a wood panel that blends with the cabinets and a new GE dishwasher with this feature costs $1300 MSRP. I'm trying to save money for when I get old so I decided to do the repair myself. For $150 it was a worthwhile investment.

Two holes not tapped

Instead of purchasing a new dishwasher, I elected to replace the motor/pump assembly which the existing was noisy and leaking water. To start to took pictures of the existing assembly and marked the wiring connections. I read the instructions a few times until I fully understood and had the necessary parts identified. The only problem was the bracket that holds the solenoid has two holes for mounting the drain feedback bracket were not threaded. I was able to tap the holes (metric) and mount the bracket. Caution must taken not damage the solenoid coil.

Dishwasher was leaking water on the lower right side.

Dishwasher had flooded. Removed Dishwasher from cabinet and diagnosed problem. Found "PartSelect" on Internet and found Part kit available at reasonable price, in stock to ship immediately. Part #PS260801 [WD26x10013] contained enough parts to make installation easy and also I was able to cure discovery of slit in drain hose that attached to dishwasher drain outlet because kit included a short piece of hose and a hose clamp that allowed hose that had been trimmed to connect to outlet.
