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
How do you remove the strainer that's on the pump housing?
Answer Hello Mike. You remove the screws and lift the cover WD12X417 off the unit. Then the cap WD12X418 lifts out of the sump assembly.
How do you remove motor from pump after removing the three screws, I have a leak there some where. Pump seal?
Answer Hello Steam. The pump and seal kit WD19X10032 comes with detailed instructions. After the screws are removed, you will remove the impeller to replace the parts. The instruction sheet will help you with the install. Hope this helps.
How is the impeller connected to the motor? Is it pressed on or threaded? I'm not sure how to remove it.
Answer Hello D! The impeller assembly WD19X10032 is threaded on. Honestly, most people are unable to get this part off due to the age and the part being rusted on, makes it almost impossible to remove. Usually, the entire assembly is purchased. If needed, the part number is WD26X10013. Thanks.
