Dishwasher was leaking from bottom
After determining that the leak was coming basically from the motor shaft I googled until I thought I could handle it, took it apart to confirm I could get it apart (I thought it might be too stuck and I might need the whole motor thing) and then ordered the kit.

I don't think this could be done with the dishwasher in place, so I turned the water off to the unit and unplugged it. I had previously removed the front bottom cover plates (4 screws). I opened the front, removed the lower dish rack and unscrewed it from the bottom side of the counter, disconnected the water supply and drain line, then wiggled it out being careful of the insulation sheets, hoses, etc. Note, water drains everywhere. I had some baking pans to contain and paper towels to wipe but still, be safe / prepared.

I disconnected everything from the motor / impeller housing area, then went inside the unit and loosened the lock ring thing around the base of whatever you call the spinning arm / sprayer, it took a little effort, might be easier to try this when it is still mounted to the counter. After that main ring was removed the housing with the motor and everything just wiggled free.

I unscrewed the motor's 3 Torx screws, and then the unscrewed the plastic "X" at the end opposite the motor, the brass weight pulls straight off and the impeller is supposed to come off too. Mine was stuck like many I read about. I drilled a hole in the end of the plastic impeller and drove the motor shaft out with a punch and hammer, it worked pretty slick. Then I carefully pried out the last seal and stopped for a cold beverage, major success.

I carefully pushed the new seal into the housing, reattached the motor to the housing, pushed on the other new seals, the impeller, the new brass weight in the same order the old ones were, and screwed on the "X" on the end as snug as I could. Then I carefully reattached the motor and housing to the bottom of the dishwasher, ensuring good solid seals and tightening that big ring again from the inside as snug as I could get it, carefully hooked everything on the bottom back up basically in the reverse of disassembly, put the unit back under the counter, plugged it in, turned the water back on to it, loaded it and tested it. I was fortunate enough to not have it leak anywhere, after 3 or 4 loads I reattached the bottom trim pieces and checked this off my list.
Also, would love to mention that your site is great, the parts were priced attractively, they arrived very quickly and were a snap to install.

Thanks for saving me a ton of money / headaches!

Andy

Water leak around motor shaft where it enters pump housing
After completely pulling out the dishwasher, I removed the rubber housing that connected to the housing assembly. I unscrewed the retaining ring which holds the impeller in place and then pulled the impeller off the shaft (which took quite a bit of force). I removed the seal seat ring and using the impeller and seal kit I replaced all the internal parts to the impeller system. (note: the impeller and seal kit acutally contained the seal-head and seal seat ring so I was able to return those two parts.) I put all of the disassembled parts back together.

Completely removed the pump housingand motor from the washer. Removed three(3) long screws holding the motor to the pump housing. Removed the dish from the housing and removed the old impeller and seals .
Cleaned the pump housing of calcium with lime-a-way. Reinstalled all new parts in reverse order as they order taken off. Cleaned inside of dishwasher with lime-a-away and general purpose cleaner. Reinstall pump housing and motor on washer in reverse order as they were taking off.
Reinstalled washer into cabinet and connected all hoses, drain lines and electrical wired. Turned washer on and watched it run throught a complete cycle. Worked just fine and no leaks. Parts were great.

My Dishwasher Started Leaking Out The Bottom Of The Impeller Assembly.
I went on line and found the partselect website and was able to identify the defective parts using the schematic drawings. I ordered the parts and in about an hour I had reassembled the dishwasher and had it running again much to the joy of my wife and children. (No more washing dishes by hand!). I also purchased the touch-up paint and tine tips and now the washer looks and runs like it did when I purchased it.

water leak at pump house and drive motor shaft interface
after removeing the mounting and trim screws,water lines and associated wiring, the unit slide easily from under the counter then the fun began.
After several years of being exposed to the terrible water here the parts had become covered in lyme scale.
to make a long story short, most of the parts came out with minor difficulty however the pump motor shaft had corroded and lodged into the pump impellar.
This made removal of the pump motor impossible with out cutting off the end of the impellar and driving the pump motor shaft out.
This is NOT something you want to do.
It seems the engineer who designed the pump motor had it's casing made of plastic.
Driving the pump motor shaft out of the impellar caused the back of the motor houseing to break thus rendering the pump motor useless.
Lesson: If it becomes necessary to cut off the impellar of in the pump housing you must completely split the impellar in two parts.
This I repeat is NOT something you want to do.
I recommend replaceing both motor and pump assembly as a unit.

the motor would not run.
i determined that the impeller was not free. ordered and installed an impeller kit which included a new bushing, which was the culprit. it was a fairly simple fix, needing only to remove the pump housing from the back of the motor. access to the impeller was by removing the screw-in, x shaped connection on the back side of the impeller housing. runs like new again. the fix was far less expensive than a new washer.

Pump impeller went crooked, apparently both from wear and moving the unit. Would not then stay in place.
Disconnected hoses (2) from pump housing. Disconnected pump housing from motor (3 allen screws, not too acessible). Unscrew spray arm from pump housing (this is done by hand; no tools as the "nut" is about 3" diameter and made of plastic) Open up the pump casing and replace impeller and the bearings on each side. The thing that takes some time is to mop the water that comes off at almost each step. There is probably an intelligent way to drain everything first. I did not order the large seal (kind of a large rubber donut, larger than a donut) between the arm and the pump and I shoiuld have as it was difficult to keep the old one from not leaking: Since by hand you cannot tighten the large nut very hard and tools could damage or break it. Applying upward pressure on the pump while tightening did it. (The pump and motor are all mounted on flexible mounts, like the heavy hoses connecting to the pump housing, so that there are no vibration.)
