Default Whirlpool dishwasher impeller removal
Model Number: DU8000XX2   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I have a Whirlpool dishwasher that has seen light use for 16 years. It has developed a leak between the pump housing and the motor shaft, but only during draining. I ordered a new housing, shaft seal, and seat. I have been successful in removing the Disk and Mount Assy (Item 10), but I'm at a loss at how to remove the impeller and its keeper (the latter resembles a cylindrical grinding stone bonded to the shaft).

At the same time, there is considerable rust around the shaft where it enters the pump housing on the motor side. A spring clip seems to retain something there (two halves of the shaft?), but it's too rusted to tell how it fits together. Since this is the point of the leak, I'm wondering whether I'll be able to get a good seal even if I can install the parts I've bought.

A new pump and motor runs $145. Should I just pitch in for the whole assembly, or is it likely that I can repair this? If so, how do I get the impeller off? Or should I apply the $145 to a new dishwasher? This unit has been trouble-free, other than a water hammer that I've learned to put up with during filling.

if you plan on getting anymore service out of a 16 year old dishwasher i would replace the whole assembly, that way you at least have a warranty. i dont like to do replacement parts on these units as i have had several leaks turn up a week later. you might want to inspect tub really close for rust before ordering parts. if you have rust around the flange the new one will probably leak too. hope this helps and good luck
