Except that the original has a nice handle attached, which this one does not, it is identical. We'll have to hire someone to transfer the handle to the new one. Installation time was approximately 30 seconds.

1. Removed front panel. 2. Backed out retaining screws at top. 3. Backed up leveling feet. 4. Pulled out dishwasher but seemed tight so stopped not wanting to break electrical or water line. Made very short space in which to work. Insulation batting was binding at top between DW and counter opening so tended to bunch up. 5. Spring at rear had flown off, so had to reattach while not being able to see. 6. Spring and new line were very tight so grabbed line with channel pliers just ahead of spring to get enough slack to get line over guide wheel. 7. Moved DW back into place and reattached with screws. 8. Had to play with leveling feet to get gap the same on each side of DW and cabinet opening. 9. Reattached lower front panel. 10. It has worked great.

Looked at the video - it was great. But I also checked the comments section. I removed the upper rack, unclipped the upper water feed and pulled it down about 2 inches. I placed a large towel over the lower washer and drain - because I wanted to be able to catch the rivet if I dropped it. I placed the rivet in place and snapped the upper arm in place. Re-secured the upper water feed at the clip, put back the upper rack, and set the rack stops back in. Took about 4 minutes.

Ordered control panel and fuse kit which arrived in a very short time.Removed six screws to access the controls and pulled control panel out (it just snaps in) and swapped plugs (old to new panel).The wiring plug that came on the fuse kit wasn't the same but was able to remove wires from fuse and plug existing wires onto fuse and snap into place.Did not have to splice wires as was mentioned in directions.

Watched the videos on Parts Select and one or two on other sites to get an idea how difficult the repair was. Ordered the part (circulation pump motor). I waited until I had the time to do the repair and a couple of extra hours just in case (ignore Murphy's Law at your own peril). The most time consuming parts were removing the connections (water supply and drain pipe) and dishwasher from the cabinet. Changing the motor was easy but make sure you have a nut driver with a long shank (8" or longer) to reach the nut holding the motor in place. After the repair, replacing the connections, and moving the dishwasher back into the cabinet, I left the kick plate off and ran the dishwasher to make sure the connections were water tight. Success. Dishwasher purrs like a kitten.

Ordered the part. It arrived in less than two days. Turn the power off for safety.You're done. You may have to loosen the drain line or water line to allow space to slide dishwasher far enough out to allow access to link kit. Easy repair. Video on your website gave detailed instructions. Thanks.
