Puddle of water under dishwasher

With a flashlight under the dishwasher, I saw a thin stream of water coming from a hole in the flexible connection between the pump discharge and the bottom of the tub, called a “lower spray arm connector”. I removed the dishwasher from the counter (very easy) and laid it face down on several towels--a good idea because water would leak out from various cavities. The pump also came off easily—just a few screws and clamps. The hard part was removing the old connector, since it appeared to be stuck in place. So I cut it off with a hacksaw, with a fair amount of difficulty. What I didn’t know was that all I needed to do was twist the lower spray arm base inside the tub to release the connector. It was obvious once I cut out the old one. Assembly was easy and the leak is now gone.

Had to remove and slide out dishwasher for acces

Hardest parts were finding the right size (13/16 in) crow foot wrench to disconnect water to the inlet solenoid valve to slide the dishwasher out. Regular wrenches won't work -- the space is too tight. Very few people have the tools I have. (No directions came with the parts package.) Second hardest was realizing the rubber transition piece connects directly to the rotation spray head inside. Threaded joint mates them up. It wouldn't unscrew, so I agonized over tearing it out piece by piece (the old rubber part I was replacing), but that's eventually what I did. Probably my fault, I could have looked at the expanded parts diagram view I had printed to find the part to order. Overall not that bad a deal, but a pro should have been able to do it in an hour or two.
