Good morning. My name is ***** ***** I'll be assisting you with your dishwasher today. So this model is getting fairly old and unfortunately bolts sometimes break off or get seized on these older units when you try to take them apart so just understand that that is a possibility. Either way, there is a video that shows you how to take this pump apart from the top down and of course it looks easier than it really is because the bolts are not seized up, but I have a feeling when you try to remove your bolt it's not going to come off so easily because it never does for me anymore when I see this model. Below is a link to the video.

Hello again. I'm just following up because I haven't heard back from you and I see this question is still open and unrated. Is there anything else I can help you with?
