I hav replaced 2 drain pumps in as many weeks.  The OEM pump comes with a shield with the warning of fire danger if not used.   The original pumps do not have a shield & the kicker is they do not make sense in how to install.  There are no instruction sheet or diagram how they are configured to install.

 

Someone can tell me how or where they are suppose to go or am I being ate up with a case of the dumb-arse.

I toss em too. The wedge in between the tub and the pump to keep any splash water, or leak water off of the motor windings, and connecter

Unnecessary part. Toss it

I actual replaced the 1st pump cause it was leaking at the pump housing.   I mean leaking, water would come flowing out from under the machine.   That POS shield would not protect the pump windings.

I'm pretty sure that shield is a CSA / UL safety requirement.  If (and more importantly, if it were possible) for water to get on the connections, it could short out.  I think that is what they are trying to cover their asses for ... It's one of the more redundant 'safety' devices on dishwasher especially considering it is the control boards that burn on these, not the drain pump.  Anybody ever seen a burn out due to leak on one of these?  Not me, and I did 10 - 12 Whirlpools a day for 9 yrs.
