Repair & Advice
To replace the pump you need to remove the screws holding the unit to the cabinet. You can then slide the unit forward and the pump is accessible from the right side. The pump has a little catch and you depress that and twist the pump off and replace it. You can pop off the incoming wiring plastic part for better access. Check for leaks. I didn’t get it twisted on right on my first attempt. Also there was a bit of glass on the impeller so you might get away with just checking that first. That being said, if you’ve gone through that much effort might as well replace the pump.
