Default Tools to Remove Screw from Impeller

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


The center screw on my 18-year-old unit was very tight. I tried an adjustable wrench, an open end wrench, and a box-end wrench, but could not hold the top impeller well enough to loosen the screw.

I instead, used a 25mm socket (preferably a 6-point, but a 12-point worked) held in a pair of Vice Grips to hold the impeller. I then used a 1/4" socket in a 1/4"-drive ratchet through the 1/2" drive opening of the 25mm socket to remove the screw.

See photograph, attached.

The screw was extremely tight, but it did not break, and was not corroded when finally removed.

I needed to replace the filter and clean out the thousands of pieces after a tempered drinking glass shattered inside the dishwasher.
