The seal is leaking around the diverter shaft. Can this seal be replaced or purchased
For model number WDF 730 payto
Hello Ray, thank you for the question. The seal you need is part of the Sump, PartSelect Number PS11755006. The seals are not sold separately and you would need to replace the full sump. Good luck with the repair.

My Whirlpool dishwasher is completely functional, it just leaks around the diverter motor shaft. The diverter motor gets wet, but hasn't failed yet because of it. I don't see any reference to the seal that the shaft goes through. Can you help me?
For model number WDT790SAYM2
Hi Jeff, Thank you for the question. The seal you need is part of the Sump,PartSelect Number PS11755006. The seals are not sold sepratly and you would need to replace the full sump. Good luck with the repair!

Dish washer leaks from the diverter valve assembly when the pump turns on. Am I correct in assuming after reading multiple answers/replies that the most likely cause is the shaft "seal" located in the sump assembly and not the actual diverter valve assembly itself. Also, the sump assembly looks like a real chore to replace. Thanks, Joe
For model number KDTE104DSS0
Hi Joe, Thank you for the question. Yes, the seal that is in the sump that seals the motor shaft would most likely be the issue. The seal is not sold on its own so the sump will need to be replaced, PartSelect Number: PS11755006. Most customers have been able to do the repair on their own and have been able to locate some youtube videos for guidance. Hope this helps!

I am having problems with water coming out under my diverter motor. I have taken the whole unit apart and could not find anything that looked faulty. The shaft gasket looks alright and the diverter unit and shaft looks and operates fine. What is wrong! The water is dripping right under the diverter motor shaft. But the gasket looks fine. What should i do?
For model number KUDE48FXSS5
Hello Andrew, thank you for your question. Unfortunately, even though the gasket might look OK, it could still be leaking, or the motor shaft could be slightly bent. The gasket is unfortunately not sold on its own. The gasket is only available with the sump part number PS11755006. I hope this helps!

I am not getting any fault codes and can hear the pump working and filling, then draining the machine, but get no water to the arms. I assume the diverter motor is shot as it appears ceased as i cannot get it to turn. Does this seem like a logical problem?
For model number WDT920SADH2
Hi Doug, Thank you for your question. Yes it could be your diverter valve. I would also suggest checking for any blockages to your manifold as well. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

My dishwasher fills and stops. It will drain if I hit cancel drain. Is it the diverter motor causing this?
For model number KDTE104ESS2
Hello Rod, Thanks for your question. Yes, this is typically due to the motor, though the pump is worth testing as well. You may be able to test them by using a multimeter to see if it has electrical continuity - replace the part if it shows no continuity. I hope this helps.

    Diverter valve was leaking.
    After shutting off electricity, lay dishwasher on it's side (use a towel to absorb any water) then just use nut driver to remove faulty valve.

    Leaking under the motor
    Unplug the dishwasher,take the screws out of the coutertop,then slide dishwasher out turn it on its side. Then take a torx screwdriver and remove 2 mounting screws. Unplug the wires going into the motor and replace the motor with the new one. But you need to replace the grommet the motor shaft slides up into or it will still leak.

    The diverter motor was leaking
    Actually, I found a video on Youtube with excellent instructions once you got past the really simple stuff like disconnecting power and water and drain.
    I would recommend just finding a fairly similar model on Youtube and follow their directions. It was really easy.
