First I would like to say I was concerned about undertaking a dishwasher repair ,as I now am legally blind and I was concerned that my vision impairment might cause me a problem. My dishwasher pump motor was not running and from the humming sound I could tell it was cycling power off on the thermo switch overload. The pump can be removed by turning it counter clockwise,however it would not move and I could not rotate the motor manually, IT appeared that the impeller must be jammed,so I removed the complete ascribe..After I removed it the motor still could not be removed for replacement. I ordered the complete assembly from PartSelect.com an was supervised how fast it was delivered. The hardest part was getting the seal to go in place as it was new and a tight fit. The Partsselect.com video's ,on repair instructions were very helpful. I reinstalled the dishwasher and everything worked fine.Thanks for thefast delivery of my order.
