Water was not draining out of the bottom of the basin
The dishwasher was disconnected and pulled out. I turned it over onto it's side so I could get down to the drain pump. It looked exactly like the original part and fit just as well. The hoses came right off and then once it was replaced, slipped right back on. It all worked like a charm. The only problem I had was after the repair. The copper water line moved around too much and caused a leak at the connection at the dishwasher. Luckily I tested the line outside before I reinstalled it completely. I just went and bought an $11 flexible hose with new fittings on either end and replaced the copper lines. It went on easier and it sealed tight.
This was a pretty easy repair and I am glad I did it. We were on the verge of just buying a new one, but for a $35 part and a couple hours, it was well worth it.

The mount for the pump was damaged in shipping. We remodeled our kitchen so we ordered the appliances befor we were ready to install them. They looked ok when got them but when we opened them the dishwasher was damaged. I tried to fix the problem but I couldn't get the vibration out.
First thing I did was to turn off the water and electrial supply. Then take the side mount screws and remove the base cover disconect the water line slide out the washer. I then put a pad on the floor turn the washer face down on the pad. I disconected the drain line lossened the clamp on the pump. Then disconected the two wires and removed the pump.I then installed the new pump tightened the clamps reconected the two wires then conected the drain line. I then slide the washer back in place reconected the water line put the side mount screws in place. I then turned the water and electrial supplies back on. I then ran the washer to check for leaks. No leaks found iI then reinstalled the base plate. The vibration was gone after replaceing the pump. Thanks Charlie
