I think only this part is broken. When I was trying to clean the inside of my dishwasher I took this part out and when trying to replace 2 out of 3 of the plastic sides came loose. Now the dishwasher will not run? Are those 3 plastic rods necessary or might there be something else wrong?
Answer Hello Courtney,
If you are talking about the pump, there are no parts of the pump serviceable. If anything on the pump came loose, the pump 8194092 will have to be replaced to correct the issue. If you are talking about the link support 8194282, it is necessary to prevent the fill line and the drain line from crimping off and it will prevent the unit from operating correctly. You will notice that the link support has been changed by the manufacturer. This was deemed necessary since the plastic design was getting broken and causing issues.
Do I have to buy the whole unit (AP3799449) or can I get just the impeller that snaps on?
Answer Paul, if you are needing the spray arm it is available separate as part number 8194110. Thanks!
How do I remove the top drawer Rotor for replacement?
Answer Hello Kelly. You will twist the rotor 8194092 and lift upward on it, to remove it from the unit. Hope this helps.
