I've gushed about this style model in previous threads, particularly the motor, which I like most of all. Energy Star runs away screaming.
If this was my unit, knowing replacement motors and controls are still available (surprisingly), and knowing the cost, I wouldn't hesitate replacing the motor/sump as an assembly. Easy to do and it comes with a new tub seal. Just might get another 10 years out of it, which is something none of us can say about the newer dishwashers being sold today.
If interested, the part number is Part number: W10428773
. Just type it into the Appliantology Part Finder field below and git er done!
