    Did you get your new one yet ?

    Good Luck
    Theory only works perfect in a vacuum.

    Tapping the loose screws is a good method. Have not messed with it yet. Have the replacement motor & very lazy in installing it. Not feeling like lying / kneeling right now. Wife hasn't yet complained about doing dishes by hand
