Dishwasher Leaking (Again) Thru Diverter Valve Motor

Kenmore Elite Dishwasher model 665.13942K010. Sears repairman replaced Diverter Valve Motor W10056349 on 5/21/12 due to water leaking through it. Today (9/23/13) same leak is occurring again (this time resulting in water damage to surrounding area). Unfortunately, this time the leak also damaged one of the electrical connectors (on harness) that connects to the Diverter. It appears that the following parts need to be replaced to resolve the leak.
1. Diverter Valve Motor
2. Sump with Seal (because I cannot locate a part number for the seal alone)
3. Wiring Harness (due to the one small harness connector being severely corroded)
Questions:
A. Is there a way to keep from having to replace these parts every year or so?
B. Can the connector for the harness be purchased alone so that I do not have to buy and replace the whole harness?
C. Can the seal in the Sump be purchased so that I do not have to purchase and replace the whole sump?
Thanks for any assistance you can provide.

I replaced my sump assembly. The hose can be carefully pried off without removing the hose clamps. If you're not comfortable reusing the clamps that are still on the hose, you can replace it or them with common screw type hose clamps found in any hardware store.
