I unplugged and removed my dishwasher and followed the instructions extactly repairing the pump and replacing the parts I had just received. I torgued the ring to the specified amount, installed the pump and found the impeller could not turn. I dis-assembled it all again and loosened the ring to allow the impeller to turn, reinstalled it and when I initiated the wash cycle, water began running wildly. Next step, replace motor and pump as the pump motor shaft has gone out
