The circulation pump and motor is located near the bottom of the dishwasher. The part functions by spinning the impeller of the circulation pump, which is used to move the water through the spray arms during the wash cycle. Before you begin this repair, it is recommended that you pull your dishwasher out of the cabinet, so you can tip the dishwasher to one side and gain better access to the circulation pump and motor. Be sure to disconnect the power source and the water source to the dishwasher before you begin this repair. To complete this repair you will need a 1/4 inch nut driver and a 3/8 inch nut driver.

We took off the old one by disconnecting everything and put in the new one an re-connected everything. Aligning the pump was a little difficult.
After looking at what everyone else had done, I decide that I would take the dishwasher out of the wall space and set it on its side. This require me to turn off the power first. Then I pull the diswasher out from its space in the wall. I turned off the the water and then took off the water hose, then took of the return hose. There was water left in both, so there was a little water on the floor as a result of this. Then I finally pulled out the unit and laid it down on its side. The motor was very visible and was easy to access. The hardest part was finding the bolt to take it off. I pulled off the power connector to the motor and then took off the one bolt that was holding the motor on the washer. Then I twisted the motor, but it would not come off. I finally got a screw driver and put it in the small opening between the motor and the connection and it finally came off. This took all of about 30 minutes. Once I got the motor off, I notice that the aluminum grating inside was dirty and needed cleaning. So I cleaned this and put it back inside. The new motor came with every thing, so I put it in and twisted it. Then put back in the bolt, reconnected the power cable, put back on the water and reconnected the output cable. In order to make sure there were no leaks before I put it back in for good, I ran a short wash to check to see if everything was tight. There were no leaks, so I put everything back in the wall. It really did sound very nice now. This dishwasher unit came with noise padding, so I put that back as well. The dishwasher, now is very quite and I don't mind it running any time during the day. The hardest part about this is getting the motor off and find the bolt. It is down between motor and the unit and there was some aluminum between this and the dishwasher, so you need a long nutdriver to get it off.
Removed dishwasher from cabinets replaced motor which was easy to do reinstalled in cabinets and ran cycle. All was good. No noise and no leaking.
First run the cancel and drain cycle to empty the water from the machine. Next shut off the water and power to machine. Then disconect the water and drain hoses, and uninstal the machine from the cabnet. There are usualy just two screws at the top when you open the door. Before you take them out take out the bottom wash arm, and the screan and the cover over the food chopper. These are all held in with star screws. After the cover is taken out the chopper will lift right out. Next lay the machine on its side there is just one capscrew holding the motor in located behind it when lying down but first unpug the wire harnes to it. The motor will come out with just a small twist after the cap screw is out. To instal just twist in put in the cap screw and follow the directions backward till it is installed again.
Disonnected, drained and pulled dishwasher. Tipped on side, disconnected electrical plug, took out screw, twisted pump 1/8th turn, pulled pump. Cleaned screen and reversed order to assemble. Very easy replacement.
Just like all the instruction and videos indicated. No deviations
excellent instructions onvideo. Must see. It helped that I previously have pulled out the dishwasher. It is as easy as the video showed except for one big part. The main bolt holding the pump in place is very tricky to get out. I had to cut some of the heat shield away to allow space for a flexible nut driver extension tool to seat the 3/8 inch nut driver bit onto the bolt. When seated the bolt will remove. You have to watch the video because replacing the new motor has a arrow mark to line up which I wouldn't have known. Final note. Always learn to dismantle the inside mechanisms of your dishwasher. Most "problems" of water flow/noise/lousy dishwashing is because food has gunked up this mechanism. I clean mine more routinely than I want to.
Easily replaced motor and pump per video. Located high limit thermostat looking up from bottom and held on with two screw bracket. Reset code: push "Hi temp scour" then push "Air dry" then repeat push of "Hi temp scour" / "Air dry". Works like new - thanks.
The machine we bought was one of the quietest. Until recently it would run without making any noise. My wife brought the noise to my attention and I started troubleshooting. I took it apart to find there were pieces of broken glass in the screens and filters. After that I tested it and discovered that the sounds would only come if the motor itself were operating. Replaced motor....bada bing... I look like a hero to the wife.
First of all...do not attempt to change the wash motor from underneath. Pull the dishwasher out of the cabinet and then start following the the mfg repair instructions. It may be probable to replace the motor from underneath, but almost impossible. Helps to turn it over, too. Need star-type wrenches. That being said it was not difficult except to break away the water duct from the sump, kept feeling like something was going to break off. (have to force the duct to the right and it does not want to go far enough to come loose easily)But nothing broke and it's running again. Incidentally, the motor assy or cap was not at fault. Had a bad chopper.Jim
Ordered a new motor and impeller. Removed old motor when the new part arrived and replaced the part.Very simple repair when placing the dishwasher on its side - must easier than I expected. Great service on part delivery from Partselect! Thank you!

Removed wash arms inside unit, then removed drain pump and disconnected all wires and took out the 3 clips that hold the assembly in the dishwasher. Everything came out pretty easy and I just put everything back the way it came apart. All told probably an hour with dis-assembly and assembly and no leaks. The motor was perfect, thanks.
I had a grinding noise during the wash cycle. I decided to check the food chopper, all okay there. So I decided to replace the washer pump & motor. When I compaired both the new part and the old part I noticed the tip of the impeller was broken on the new part. I removed the impeller from the old motor and put it on the new one. After I got it back together I tried it and had the same noise. I removed the food chopper and the noise was gone. I guess I'll replace the food chopper now, even though it looks okay.
