Dishwasher spray pump was of working water filled and drained via the second drain pump.
My Repair & Advice:
Remove the screws holding the dishwasher to the counter or cabinets. Turn off water supply valve. Turn off power to the unit. Remove drain line from sink connection. Remove unit from cabinets. Lay on side have some towels to dry up spilled water (small amount). Unplug white and blue plug from circulation pump. Remove Tory screws holding pump bracket. Remove bracket Wiggle pump out of the lower unit. Put some dish soap on the two rubber o rings for new pump. Slide new pump into unit make sure alignment notch is correct. Cut off old style plug. Slide shrink wrap tubes over blue and white wires. Strip existing wires about a half inch. Connect white and blue plug wires to units crimp connectors. Slide shrink wrap over connections and heat with hair dryer to shrink. Connect plug to new motor. Reinstall test for leaks. Note a multimeter can be used to test the old motor wiring on resistance scale. Also Can temporarily power the motor to verify if it is a bad pump. Be extremely careful when doing this the wires will be energized and not insulated. Search Internet for you tube videos on pump replacement this was a big help.
