My pump came with a thin particle or fiberglass shield. It is not the cover for the wire plug. I have tried every way I can think of to install it. Can you help me?
ANSWER Hello William,
I tried with no positive results to find a picture of the pump with the shield. The shield was an after thought on the manufacturers' part so it didn't come out originally on the units. For this reason, there are no illustrations of it in the service manual. I can tell you that is installs over the top of the pump between the outer tub and the pump itself. The design was to shed water off of the pump should there be a leak. The unit will operate normally without the shield but it is recommended by the manufacturer to install it.
