I have water dripping from the motor and volute. How do I remove the motor and volute from the pump housing?

Ej for Model Number KUDM01FKSS1

ANSWER EJ, Here's the information. " Removing the Wash Motor 1. Remove the bolt securing the wash motor and drip shield in place on the pump assembly. 2. Once the bolt and drip shield are removed, turn the wash motor counter-clockwise until it stops (approximately ¼ turn). 3. Pull the motor straight back from the sump assembly. Some effort may be necessary to dislodge the motor. The volute will remain attached to the motor NOTE: When reinstalling the wash motor and volute, do not pinch the volute seal between the volute and sump. Use a small amount of rinse aid on the volute seal to help installation. 4. With the wash motor removed, the separation screen can be removed from the sump base. 5. The thermistor can be removed from the sump by turning it ¼ turn counterclockwise and pulling it out. The thermistor can be removed without removing the sump assembly from the tub. NOTE: Make sure water is completely drained from sump. Access to the thermistor can be gained by removing the access and toe panels while the unit is in its installed position." You probably won't need the volute, unless it's cracked or broken, but you will need to check and replace the motor shaft seal 8193951 or the complete motor assembly W10757217 to recieve the other needed impeller /circulation parts.
