After getting the pump and motor off of the dishwasher, I used a screwdriver and small hammer to break the impeller off of the motor shaft. The shaft was corroded and pitted real bad but this doesn't matter because the shaft of the impeller actually goes through the seal. I removed the old seal and replaced it, slipped the new impeller back on the motor shaft and put the pump and motor back on the dishwasher. Our local repair man told us it couldn't be repaired and we needed a new dishwasher. I had the parts from Part Select in 2 days. The parts were less than $35 dollars and repair very simple. The person on your comment section on how to fix it that said to break the old impeller off of the shaft made the job very simple.
