Dishwasher leaking from underneath from pump housing seals
Followed the helpful instructional video that is included in the installation instructions here on this site. Had to drill out impeller to remove it due to 20 yr. old dishwasher w/ signs of hard water attack on the motor drive shaft. New part installation was quick, once the old impeller was completely removed and internal housing was cleaned.

Before installing new parts, make sure to flush out & clean internal pump housing to remove any loose debris and/or signs of rust, and carefully clean motor shaft & seal seat surface.

Also found heavy limescale buildup and soap residue on pump seal grommet & seal surface on the upper lip of the pump housing. Grommet is discontinued, but it cleaned up well along w/ seal surfaces, after soaking in white vinegar and employing a light scrub along the circumference of the seal (Not radially or perpendicular to the seal surface).

Water leaking from pump seal.
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.

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.

Pump impeller went crooked, apparently both from wear and moving the unit. Would not then stay in place.
Disconnected hoses (2) from pump housing. Disconnected pump housing from motor (3 allen screws, not too acessible). Unscrew spray arm from pump housing (this is done by hand; no tools as the "nut" is about 3" diameter and made of plastic) Open up the pump casing and replace impeller and the bearings on each side. The thing that takes some time is to mop the water that comes off at almost each step. There is probably an intelligent way to drain everything first. I did not order the large seal (kind of a large rubber donut, larger than a donut) between the arm and the pump and I shoiuld have as it was difficult to keep the old one from not leaking: Since by hand you cannot tighten the large nut very hard and tools could damage or break it. Applying upward pressure on the pump while tightening did it. (The pump and motor are all mounted on flexible mounts, like the heavy hoses connecting to the pump housing, so that there are no vibration.)

the motor would not run.
i determined that the impeller was not free. ordered and installed an impeller kit which included a new bushing, which was the culprit. it was a fairly simple fix, needing only to remove the pump housing from the back of the motor. access to the impeller was by removing the screw-in, x shaped connection on the back side of the impeller housing. runs like new again. the fix was far less expensive than a new washer.

Beverly
September 23, 2021
Our dishwasher is trying to pump out the water after the cycles but it doesn't pump out all the water. The pump is running the motor is running but all the water does not pump out. What can this be? Maybe the pump could be full of food or what? Someone told me it was the impeller in the pump. I would appreciate your advice.
For model number DP840SWKX0

Hello Beverly, Thank you for the question. This normally indicates there is a blockage somewhere preventing the water from fully draining. We suggest removing the pump to check for debris, as well as the drain hose. If it is not blocked, it could be a defective Pump. We hope this helps!
