Dishwasher was leaking from bottom

After determining that the leak was coming basically from the motor shaft I googled until I thought I could handle it, took it apart to confirm I could get it apart (I thought it might be too stuck and I might need the whole motor thing) and then ordered the kit.

I don't think this could be done with the dishwasher in place, so I turned the water off to the unit and unplugged it. I had previously removed the front bottom cover plates (4 screws). I opened the front, removed the lower dish rack and unscrewed it from the bottom side of the counter, disconnected the water supply and drain line, then wiggled it out being careful of the insulation sheets, hoses, etc. Note, water drains everywhere. I had some baking pans to contain and paper towels to wipe but still, be safe / prepared.

I disconnected everything from the motor / impeller housing area, then went inside the unit and loosened the lock ring thing around the base of whatever you call the spinning arm / sprayer, it took a little effort, might be easier to try this when it is still mounted to the counter. After that main ring was removed the housing with the motor and everything just wiggled free.

I unscrewed the motor's 3 Torx screws, and then the unscrewed the plastic "X" at the end opposite the motor, the brass weight pulls straight off and the impeller is supposed to come off too. Mine was stuck like many I read about. I drilled a hole in the end of the plastic impeller and drove the motor shaft out with a punch and hammer, it worked pretty slick. Then I carefully pried out the last seal and stopped for a cold beverage, major success.

I carefully pushed the new seal into the housing, reattached the motor to the housing, pushed on the other new seals, the impeller, the new brass weight in the same order the old ones were, and screwed on the "X" on the end as snug as I could. Then I carefully reattached the motor and housing to the bottom of the dishwasher, ensuring good solid seals and tightening that big ring again from the inside as snug as I could get it, carefully hooked everything on the bottom back up basically in the reverse of disassembly, put the unit back under the counter, plugged it in, turned the water back on to it, loaded it and tested it. I was fortunate enough to not have it leak anywhere, after 3 or 4 loads I reattached the bottom trim pieces and checked this off my list.
Also, would love to mention that your site is great, the parts were priced attractively, they arrived very quickly and were a snap to install.

Thanks for saving me a ton of money / headaches!

Andy

Water leak around motor shaft where it enters pump housing

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.

Pump not working properly

I removed the inner nut holding the spray arm onto the pump. Turned the washer on it's back and removed the wire clip holding rear of the pump motor. Completely removed the pump housingand motor from the washer. Removed three(3) long screws holding the motor to the pump housing. Removed the dish from the housing and removed the old impeller and seals .
Cleaned the pump housing of calcium with lime-a-way. Reinstalled all new parts in reverse order as they order taken off. Cleaned inside of dishwasher with lime-a-away and general purpose cleaner. Reinstall pump housing and motor on washer in reverse order as they were taking off.
Reinstalled washer into cabinet and connected all hoses, drain lines and electrical wired. Turned washer on and watched it run throught a complete cycle. Worked just fine and no leaks. Parts were great.

Sincerely,
James

Dishwasher was not pumping out water

My husband did the repair. He sucked the water out with the wet/dry vac. Layed it over on the front and removed the pump motor and replaced it.
