This part fixes the following symptoms:
First removed dishwaser from under counter so I could get to rubber connecter. It is located in center under dishwasher. I first needed to unscrew with wrench rubber connection at pump and and then the complete piece unscewed by hand from pump wash arm. I then just had to screw new rubber connector back on to bottom of dishwasher and re-attached at the pump. It was very easy to replace the rubber connector. I also replaced the dishwasher sump housing because it was made of same rubbber material and feared it was deteriorating also. I had to unscrew with wrench at pump as well and it just popped out from inside dishwasher after unscrewing screen inside dishwaser. Popped new piece in and screwed screen back on and reconnected underneath dishwasher back to pump. The rack roller wheel just popped right on. FYI: The wheel is actually 1.75 inches in diameter not 2 inches. I was worried it might be too big if it where 2 inches but it was the same size as the other wheels which was 1.75 inches. The hardest part of this job was getting the dishwasher in and out from under the counter. The good news is that most of these parts are standard and the replacement parts fit perfect.

First shut off the Power and Water to Dishwasher, removed from under counter, removed sump screen and retaining clamp from sump housing and then loosened seal from inside dishwasher cavity. Upon removal I went in search of a replacement part and found Parts Select on the web, entered my model and make at there web site and found the part I needed, I could verify the size by the easy picture on a one inch tile background for the dimenision . I called in the order since I wanted overnight service, I received the part and after cleaning the area where it goes I proceded to put things back together, this took about a hour and a half and the dishwasher is back in service
I pulled the dishwasher out from under the counter. Loosened the collar holding the sump housing to the pump motor. Unscrewed the cover inside the base of dishwasher to release the collection opening of the sump. It's very flexible so I pulled it out by hand. Put the new one in and screwed everything back down. Pushed the dishwasher back under the counter. Simple Simple Simple.
Unscrewed 2 screws from under the counter, pulled out dishwasher. Saw where it was leaking. Took wires loose, took the rack out, unscrew the white mesh, took out the dishwasher sump housing product saw a crack and ordered the piece. For anyone out there make sure you turn the electric power switch off before you attempt to fix anything!!!!!!
Ordered rubber connector and it arrived the next day. Shut off main power and water. Disconnected water supply and pulled unit out from under counter. Flipped unit over on it's side. Disconnected wiring, drain hose, clamps and completely removed motor/pump. Rubber connector would not unscrew by hand so I found a drinking glass slightly smaller in diameter than the connector inner diameter. Inserted glass in connector and proceeded to unscrew connector by turning connector and glass together. After removing old connector I cleaned the mating part after removing it from inside the washer and removed all the build-up. Replaced everything back in same order.
first I used a shop vac to clean any excess water left behind, removed the sump housing from the motor, removed the sump housing from the body of dishwasher, replaced the old housing for the new one and reversed my steps to remove old one,
I shut off water and pulled dish washer out removed all water. Turned waasher upside down. Removed sump housing screws and unscrewed pc fitting ,replaced new parts. Make sure things are tight before turning on water.
First turn water supply off,take out two screws under counter that holds dishwasher in place,pull washer out just enough to take water supply line loose from the unit, finish pulling unit out from under the counter top lay unit on it`s side or door down on the floor,remove clamp with a flat screw driver,unthread pump connector from washer arm and install new connector, very easy installation if you have any mechanical skills at all.
Removed dishwasher from under counter,hardest part,removed to workshop. Laid it on the door with cardboard under it. Removed the clamp with a nut driver, pulled it off the pump squeesed it up out of the tub. To replace it was a little harder. It didn't want to stay into the grove in the tub. Placed it on the pump first to hold it down and than it went in the grove better. Last I took a wooden dowell rod and press it down tight into the grove. Replaced drain guard which holds it into the grove. Tested it for leaks. Returned it to under counter.
My dishwasher is just over two years old and began leaking, naturally, out of warranty. My son has been repairing appliances for many years and knew what to look for, which is why we ordered the parts. When I contacted " Hotpoint " and was told how sorry they were , the person I spoke with only implied that my son isn't qualified and they could send a technician " to look at it ". I told them not to bother, but to be assured, after buying Hotpoint appliances most of my life, I will look at other products in the future, that might last more than two years. As soon as the parts were replaced, the problem was resolved.
First I undid the hose clamps holding the housing on the dishwasher. Then I removed the 4 screws that connected the motor to the bottom of the dishwasher. I then slipped the house UP out of the dishwasher from the inside where your dishes are washed. This also required me to remove the guard that prevents any large objects from washing away down into the Sump Housing. This required 2 long screws to be removed. Then you just drop the housing back down into the hole where the previous one was removed. Removing the 4 screws from the motor allows the flexibility to move the motor around and back onto the new housing. Button everything back up at this point and tighten the hose clamps back up and your set.
turned off the power to the dishwasher, pulled it out and turned it on its side. disconnected the water connection. removed the leaking sump housing. inserted the new sump housing. this proved to be a bit time consuming as it was difficult to get the sump housing through and established properly. my husband, son and i prevailed and viola! a $280 appliance repair done for the cost of $18 (plus paid for expedited shipping to have the next day as we wanted this done before christmas!) not bad!
Well the repair was pretty simple and with the parts arriving so fast I didn't really even miss the dishwasher for that long. Thanks to parts select and the very good parts breakdown of my model appliance I got the right parts the first time around. Thank you very much for being there it made my life a little easier. Tommy
