The photo is small, but it looks like it.

The motor has no markings on which way to attach the connections, just a metal prong over one side. We need to know on which side to attach the blue wire and on which side to attach the red/white wire

similarly in the solenoid, we need to know if the grey wire or the red/white wire gets attaached on the side with the tiny tiny 8 next to it.

the new part is a Universal Motor/Pump WD26X10013
