Eventually the Pump started making a lot of noise.

First, I went to the "partselect" web site and searched for "loud noise". The web site listed the probable cause and had a video about how to remove the discharge pump housing. I removed the housing and found it in two pices. Ordered the part and received it in 2 days. I had to watch the video again to make sure I replaced the parts in the correct order. Wife is now happy and that makes me happy. Thanks to "partselect" for your help.

Replaced the inner door foam insulation strip and door gasket.I believe the "secret" is not to push the door gasket in all the way. Let the door find its own seat. Problem fixed.

This was as simple a repair as you will ever get, at least on a 16 year old Maytag like we have. Literally just take the old gasket out and put the new one in -- just make sure to look at the old gasket to ensure you are inserting the proper end of the new one into the channel, I almost put it in wrong, but then again I'm brain damaged where home repairs are concerned. The door is more difficult to close after I put the gasket in, so I may have to adjust the door closing mechanism just a tad.

Dishwasher Leaks

Installing the door gasket is relatively easy, it just pushes in place without any adhesive. Just make sure it is even on both sides
You can to pull it out and reinstall to even it all way around the door if needed.
You may also find a new gasket will make to door a little harder to close. I presume it will be easier to close over time.
I also installed a new float at the same time but that repair is very difficult, takes specialized tools and lots of patience.

I twice watched the 5 minute video on PartSelect on how to repair the Discharge Pump Housing. I disassembled as instructed. One thing I did that the video did not suggest is that I marked the alignment of all parts with a pencil before removing any screws. In the end it only mattered on the main housing that covers the filter. That has to be put back on the way it came off. The repair is complete and for under $50 the dishwasher is running great and quieter than I can ever remember.

lack of two wheels

Replacement part has only 6 wheels. The original part has 8 wheels. The lack of the two extra wheels allows the dish rack to get stuck in the space between the inside of the dishwasher and the door. The extra set of wheels allows the rack to bridge the gap. It is a problem even if you put the rack in the other way around only a bit worse to deal with. The part was designed with four sets of wheels for a reason.
