The problem I am having is; the water is not coming up through the sprayers. The sprayers are not blocked. Everything else seems fine. Can it be the impeller? If so, please let me know which part number to buy and whatever else I may need.
The issue with no water getting to the upper spray arms could be either that the unit is not filling with enough water or that the impeller is faulty. Check the water level of the dishwasher and make sure that the water is filling to just below the heating element. If this checks ok then the impeller part number 8193951 would be the issue.
How do I unscrew the impeller from the pump? There is black goo that drips out below the recirc motor so I'm assuming the seal is bad and is included with the impeller part kit 8193951
Answer Hello JR. To remove the motor from the sump housing you will want to remove the securing bolt securing the wash motor and drip shield in place on the pump assembly. Once removed turn motor approximately 1/4 turn until it stops. Pull motor straight back from the sump. This may take some effort to dislodge. The volute will remain attached. Keep in mind when reinstalling the wash motor and the 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. Once pump is off you can remove the impeller and volute. To remove the impeller, slide a flat blade screwdriver into the back of the wash motor to keep armature of motor from turning while unscrewing the impeller clockwise. Take care not to scratch or nick the motor winding. Unscrew the impeller then line the arrow of the volute up with the triangle mark on the pump and lift off volute. Reinstall in reverse.
I turn the dishwasher on, it starts to wash. When it starts to pump out it gets stuck and keeps pumping out and doesn't finish the wash cycle
Answer Randy, the issue would be the electronic control W10084142 . there are only two components involved, the drain pump which works and the control board. The eeprom on the control board most likely has a "glitch" and gets stuck in the drain increment circuit.
the dishwasher will fill and pump out. It will not circulate water. It just hums after it fills. there was some broken glass that had jammed the food chopper, but I cleared that. thanks for your help. Ted
Answer Ted, there may be glass in the impeller jamming the assembly, or possibly the glass shards have damaged the vanes on the impeller 8193951 . You'll need to remove the motor pump assembly and remove the volute and motor and check the impeller and the chamber for debris and blockage.
Do you have installation instructions for this part? I think I need to replace my impeller shaft (it's not engaging the food chopper). Can I do this without removing the entire pump assembly?
Answer Hello Larry. You must remove the motor to replace this part.
The impeller unscrews off the motor shaft of the unit. You need to hold the motor from turning when unscrewing the impeller. Usually it is easier to replace the motor assembly... more instead of just the impeller
