OK I have the thing out and putting the new one in but I have the slot in the front aligned but then looking in the dw the right side doesnt want to go down all the way. Turned it over and seems to be too big for the hole, not to mention I cut the crap out of my finger on that sharp edge. What am I not doing right??

I watched the video, seems theirs just fell in there. Anyway I got mine in there and it works. Seems quieter now than when it was new but then I was used to it screaming. The only thing, the first fill it had air in the pump. Then I thought it was probably because it was empty so I added a quart or so and it stopped making the noise. Then on the next fill it did the same thing again. I did have to disconnect the fill line to change it out but I didnt see anything that looked like trash. I have a 1/2" copper line going to it. Do you think the new pump has to have more water? I never had trouble with that before unless I used a detergent that foamed too much and you could hear it pumping air. I sure hate to have to pull that thing back out. Do you think it needs a new valve or can this one be cleaned out--like a washer hose screen??
