How do you install the new shaft sleeve over the motor shaft without splitting it? It is obvious that it is an interference fit and requires some force to go on but in this case the interference was more than the sleeve could take.
This sleeve was included in the kit, though it is not shown in the picture on the website.
ANSWER David, Once you remove the motor and sump assembly from the dishwasher, its a matter of unscrewing the chopper blade, grate, ring etc. Then separate the sump housing from the motor and press the shaft seal out of the housing. Here's some help " Hold motor shaft, remove old cutter.Remove the grater by rotating clockwise. Remove wear ring and wear ring retainer. Hold the motor shaft and remove the old impeller by turning clockwise. Separate motor from pump by removing four(4) screws. Remove protective sleeve from the motor shaft if present, and discard. Press seal out of the pump housing from motor side of pump and discard. Install new seal assembly by pressing seal firmly in pump housing seal pocket. Make sure seal is completely seated in the pump housing pocket." Good Luck and Thanks
