I purchased a new motor from your online parts list for my dishwasher. I received the motor and find out the shaft is 1/4" shorter than my old one and I can't get a good fit for my impeller when I assemble my unit together. If I leave off the splash shield, I can get the unit to assemble back together. But the splash shield prevents water from dripping down into the motor. and I don't see leaving it off or modifying the motor housing to get this to work correctly.
Have you had this come up before?
Customer service says the original motor is no longer available, and he was not sure what my options were except to ask here on Q & A. HELP!!!!
ANSWER Hello Jeff,
This part 5303943142 is showing as the correct part number for your model number. We have sold several of these and have had no issues of the shaft being too short. You will want to double check your installation of part.
