What is making a loud howling noise, I checked chopper, drains well, supply is good. My guess is that the motor is getting ready to die.

I have an 11 year old Kitchenaide dishwasher using chopper part #8268383. Last year I replaced the part but it just clogged up again. The nylon teeth that engages the shaft on the motor appears to be worn out already. Is this typical?

Should the chopper turn while the machine is in 'drain' mode? My dishwasher won't drain and I'm wondering if its the circulation motor after cleaning everything. The drain impeller turns while machine is in drain mode but the chopper does not turn although it will turn freely by hand. I put a phone and flashlight inside the machine to record the blade while I engaged 'drain' and the chopper did not turn. I could see the impeller was turning by looking into the pump after removing drain hose.

For some time the dishes on the top rack were not getting clean. Then one day the machine would not work. The bottom was full of water and would not drain. I did some investigation and found the chopper blade was broken. Of course I found various particles of food and glass. I even found a rusty screw which I believe belonged to a frying pan and not the machine itself. Anyhow, I replaced the chopper blade and cleaned everything out but the machine wont start. No lights, no power, nothing. I checked the breaker and it is fine. I am at a loss as to what to do next.

I just cleaned the chopper filter to correct a cleaning quality issue. The assembly appears to be intact but the screen was clogged with fibrous food residue. However, it was mentioned in some of the answers that the shaft turning the chopper may be broken and it will require a motor replacement. Is there a way to determine if this shaft is broken?

Our dishwasher started making a vibratory loud noise last week, the top rack quit coming clean, so I replaced the water inlet valve and took out the chopper assembly. It was gooped up quite a bit. It seemed to clean better but then quit again and is still loud. I took it apart and the chopper was gummed up again with food. I cleaned it again. Turning the chopper blade will not turn the motor unit but I an manually turn the motor unit and the blade turns. Does the chopper unit need replaced or is the motor going bad? Thanks

Our dishwasher is not draining, all the connections are free from clogs. We took apart the unit and it appears the chopper assembly is broken because the blade is not attached to the screen at all, it just moves around the screen. Could this be the reason the unit is not draining or is there another issue with the unit we should evaluate?

Hi There...The gear at the end of the motor is worn and wont drive the chopper, causing the screen to plug up and not pump much water. My question is...what will happen if I just remove the chopper and screen assembly all together so I at least get good water pressure again? Will the dishes be dirtier? will the impeller clog up? or will it risk plugging the drain line? I am going to try it and see what happens as we think that we will probabally buy a new dishwasher instead of fixing this piece of junk, but i was just curious what will be the likely senario to watch for...thanks in advance.

I have just watched the video on replacing the dishwasher chopper assembly, #8268363. I moved into a house with this dishwasher not working well. Since we had home warranty I called to get it serviced. The service tech took apart the dishwasher and the screen on the chopper assembly was horribly gunked up. He took apart the assembly itself, I was in an out of the kitchen but he just handed me the screen and I attempted to get it clean, I did see the blade but the two were not attached together. I did not see the part reassembled, I would imagine he did it, but since it is a spring loaded part, I am questioning if that is possible. Is this a part that can come apart? I don't mind taking apart my dishwasher again to look at it, but I don't think I have the torque screwdriver I need to remove the housing, but I can get one. The video is excellent, and I am fairly handy if I know what the problem is. Thanks
