DO I NEED TO PULL THE FILTER GATE OUT? DOES IT SCREW IN/OUT?CLOCKWISE OR COUNTERCLOCKWISE? ANYTHING ELSE?
Answer Hello Rcp. You will need to remove the sump assembly fromt he unit to install the spring WD1X1339 onto the shaft. Good Luck!
received the cutting spring i ordered and getting ready to tnstall it. do you have any instructions or helpful easy hints?
Answer Rcp, Nothing "special" to consider. screw it on the end of the impleller shaft as tight as possible, it will tighten itself during the operation of the machine. Just be careful with the end of the chopper spring, it's sharp and punctures fingers pretty easy. Good Luck
Is the spring necessary? Can I replace the spring myself? How difficult is it to replace? Suggestions please. thank you.
Answer RCP, Yes, the spring is necessary, it is actually a "chopper blade" and masserates any large semi soft articles in the water. You can replace yourself, it screws onto the end of the impeller and through the opening in the filter grate. you may have to lock the motor armature with a screwdriver to the shaft doesn't turn. Or remove the motor assembly from the sump tub and work on it outside of the dishwasher if needed. Either way it's a doable repair. Thanks and Good Luck
