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

I have a whirlpool dishwasher du1055xtsb. I have to take it apart and clean the chopper assembly part every week. After I clean it it works like a dream for another week then I have to repeat the process. I have ordered new chopper assembly part and replaced it and still does the same thing. I make sure the dishes are scrapped but the chopper assembly still gets caked with food particles. I also noticed when the dishes don't come out clean the soap is hard in the dispenser. What could be wrong? Thanks for your time, Steven

Can you replace the impeller that drives the chopper blade assembly? Our dishwasher is not cleaning top rack and blade keeps filling with debris. My husband has taken apart numerous times and feels it is the impeller - not the chopper blade assembly. Do you carry a part to fix this?
