GE model GSD730T-60WW has leaky pump?

Hi,
had DW running while leveling & when the DW began the empty part of the cycle I noticed a leak.
I felt about the hoses & found no water. The leak appears to be coming from I guess solenoid that engages to empty the DW.

Here is a picture with the solenoid in place. I put an arrow where the leak looked to be coming from. The is upside down, I turned it over to work on.

here is a picture with solenoid removed. One arrow points to the shaft that plastic dealy(?) spins on & the other arrow to the screw hole which holds the metal bracket in place.

This is the bottom of the solenoid which has some rust, so I guess it's been leaking for a bit. Lucky no water damage. Perhaps I made it worse when removing & replacing the DW.

I cannot find any cracks in the plastic housing & it looks like if replacing I have to buy both the motor & pump/plastic housing?
Any idea suggestions much appreciated.

thank you

Think I may have found the answer to my question here:
GE Dishwasher Pump Leaking Repair Guide

Looks like Drain Shaft Seal - If water leaks around the drain solenoid during a drain cycle, the seal is bad.
Pretty much exactly whats happening.
