The hardest part was disconnecting the dishwasher. the motor is located on the bottom so after pulling it out and laying it down on the front of the machine the motor unplugs and 2 screws hold it in place.The new motor comes with "O" rings so I applied a little grease and put it back together. 2 minutes to replace motor, 15 minutes to disconnect water and electric, 15 to reconnect.

Easy repair. pulled dishwasher out, disconnected electrical wire for safety but don't think it was required since the breaker was off (turn it on and flip the breaker for verification). Pulling the pump and replacing was easy, soap dispenser, same, easy. First time I ever worked on a dishwasher, simple. Parts were all OEM parts and most importantly were the correct parts I needed. Way cheaper than replacing the unit and I saved $150 on an hours worth of work vice paying the service guy.
