After completely pulling out the dishwasher, I removed the rubber housing that connected to the housing assembly. I unscrewed the retaining ring which holds the impeller in place and then pulled the impeller off the shaft (which took quite a bit of force). I removed the seal seat ring and using the impeller and seal kit I replaced all the internal parts to the impeller system. (note: the impeller and seal kit acutally contained the seal-head and seal seat ring so I was able to return those two parts.) I put all of the disassembled parts back together.
