I recently replaced the lower drain impeller (154365401) and when trying to install the volute cover to the pump housing, I find that it doesn't seat properly. Should I have also replaced the seal assy. (154387601). When I install the pump housing cover (154365201) I notice when I put the upper impeller (154370601) on the shaft it is not centered on the pump housing cover
Answer Dave, You'll need to recheck the parts installation, here's some help "Installation of motor to pump housing requires centering of motor shaft using service tool P/N 154384901. Place pump housing on top of motor shaft lining up the screw hole of motor top end shield to embosses on pump housing. ( Make sure the motor plug is facing towards you and the drain pump port is at the right side to install correctly.) Now place service tool over top of motor shaft and slide service tool down into pump housing to center motor shaft to pump housing. Install mounting screws for motor to pump housing. Remove service tool and then complete rest of installation of other parts to assemble motor." Motor Shaft Seal Motor shaft seal will come mounted on a sleeve; this is to protect the seal surfaces. This sleeve must be removed to install the new seal. 1. Check seal faces to be sure they are both clean and free of any foreign material. 2. Install ceramic half of seal into sump, making sure it bottoms out in sump. 3. Slide top half of seal onto motor shaft making sure it is down and tight and the surfaces are mating properly.
