Nice job.  This motor/sump assembly is easily changed without pulling the DW or even disconnecting the power.  Disconnect and remove the drain motor from the front.  Reach in and flip the 3 lock tabs.  Push the pump/sump up into the tub.  Then disconnect the wires from inside the dishwasher.  (Careful of the sharp edges.) Reassemble the same way.  About 20 mins total.  WP really did make these pretty easy to service.

This is a great new source for leaks! You'll have to replace the sump (only way to replace the seal), diverter motor, and the now corroded wire harness...

Does anyone know if a repair wire harness exists for this, or do you really have to replace the entire harness: W10496093? Chat, I've seen this before during an inspection a couple years ago and just saw another one yesterday.

You have to order the harness, but I've cut and spliced just the wires to the diverter motor. I look for this everytime I work on a GWS now, saves me a recall and the customer possible water damage.
