Never having repaired a dishwasher before, I disassembled everything I dared to until I found the root of the problem--part of the impeller had broken into several little bits. It wasn't apparent where the pieces came from, but the on-line diagrams and product photos helped. The broken impeller didn't want to come off the shaft, so I just crunched it up with a pair of vise grips. That seemed to be the gentlest solution for the pump bearings. The bits of impeller also took out the pump housing, which I could have ordered with the impeller had I been more observant. [insert four more days of washing by hand here] Inspect all parts for damage and clean out all stray chunks of food and plastic before reassembling!

Excellent site. When the dishwasher started making a loud grinding sound, i thought "oh great -- now I'll have to buy a new one". After searching the internet (I just entered the model number of my Maytag dishwasher), Partsselect.com came up in the search results. I read several postings from previous customers which described the same problem I was having... followed their step-by-step instructions and was able to disassemble the lower washer arm and find the culprit -- a broken wash impeller. Ordered the parts, they arrived within a couple of days, spent 15 mins putting everything back together and I'm now good to go! THANKS PARTS SELECT!!!!! I owe somebody a free lunch!
I removed the lower spray arm, then the cover over the discharge housing. Then removed the discharge housing,and the wash impeller. I reassembled in the reverse order of the disassembly,with a new discharge housing nut,housing gasket,and lower spray arm seals.
I followed the excellent parts diagram on the PartSelect.com site to remove one screw after another, until I arrived at the disintegrated impeller. After replacing it, I reversed the procedure, again refering to the diagram frequently. In the process, I discovered that one part, the pump housing filter, had shrunk over the years, preventing the pump cover to seat properly. Although I had a few service calls in the past (we had a service contract until a month ago), no one could find the reason why the cover did not tighten down. I was told the screw holes were stripped, and it would not be worth replacing the whole base. Anyway, I used a Dremel grinder on the filter latches to increase the diameter of the filter, and it fits now. The nine-year old dishwasher runs like a charm again. Incidentally, the ordered parts arrived within 24 hours! How do they accomplish such fast delivery?
there was buildup in the arms - we could see white chunks blocking the holes. we cleaned them out. using the diagram printed from you site we compared the other parts to the picture as we took them off. we determinted a few were bent or distorted or worn and ordered replacements. items arrived very quickly -in 2 days. (which does feel long enough when you are hand washing dishes). we put things back together in correct order using your diagram again and it's been clean dishes ever since. we also changed dish soaps figuring the build up was from that!! thanks for your help and your speedy delivery!
Unscrewed cap holding lower sprayer arm in place, removed arm, screen cover (3 screws) screen, and probably 8 or 10 other parts that centered over the pump/motor shaft in the center, bottom of the machine, until I came to the impeller. A piece of the impeller broke off where it slides over the shaft, so the impeller wouldn't spin with shaft and drain the unit and the loose piece made a racket! Held motor armature from below to keep shaft from turning and loosened bolt in center of shaft which held impeller in place.I left the machine apart until the new impeller arrived (shipped very quickly, thanks!) then just reversed the dis-assembly process and put it back together. Took ten minutes and works great!
I dissected down the assembly and ran it as I moved through different parts of the assembly until I found the culprit parts. Stop and start as I went through it. I found a blown out impeller.
Determined wash arm not turning. dismantled washer assembly to impeller. Found discharge assembly had broken causing a plastic plate inside of it to cut holes in the sides. Water was being forced out the sides instead of up into washer arms. Replaced discharge assembly and just in case, the impeller as well. Reinstalled impeller and discharge. Took out filter and cleaned it thoroughly. Reassembled washer arm assembly. dishwasher works like new.
this repair is done from the inside,remove lower basket,screw off the center nut (its not to tight came off by hand, no tools)take off spray arm,take all the torque bolts out,remove the screen filter take the 3 bolts out of the pump housing and remove, mine came apart that was the noise. The impeller may not need to be replaced but mine had marks on it so I did.Install new seals clean up parts and put it back together with new parts ..works as good as new!!! I had my new parts in 1 (ONE)day PartSelect thank you. Andy,
