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.
