Getting the dishwasher out was easy. Getting to the impeller was easy. Getting the impeller off of the motor shaft was the difficult part. I had to use my Dremel tool with lots of cutoff wheels to cut the impeller off of the motor shaft a little piece at a time. It appeared to be rust on the motor shaft that was causing the impeller to not come off. There is not much room for the Dremel so be careful not to nick the pump housing or cut into the motor shaft. Keep the vacuum close by to clean out the plastic impeller shavings. Clean the rust off the shaft with steel wool, fine sandpaper etc. Assembly was easy once everything was cleaned up.
