[quote=chrisxx;104641]richappy, Saw your impeller removal advice but wish to remove the 1/4 screw, then replace after cleaning an obstruction. For that reason, I don't want to crack the rubber washer. I've had a specialized nut busting solution on it for three days now so perhaps that will help. Do you know if the screw is REVERSE THREADED? Is it removed by turning clockwise? Thanks![/quote]

I have been getting a special nut busting solution on it for three 2 days now so that will probably help. Take a sharp wooden chisel and gently pound on the top edge of the impeller near the screw. Crack it away from the shaft , then apply sharp oil to the screw.

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.

I'd suggest against breaking off the impeller.
This bolt does thread in the normal way (righty tighty) so if it's seized instead slightly tighten it first to break it loose (but not too hard so as to crush the rubber gasket under the bolt head), then unscrew it to the left (counter clockwise). Use a 1/4" socket with an extension to a socket wrench. The plastic "nut" on the impeller is 1". Didn't have a 1" box wrench so I used an adjustable. No problem. Pull the impeller up and out of the way.
Next use that same torx screwdriver you used to get to the impeller to remove the four bolts that are now exposed. Gently pull away the assembly. Voila, there's all the junk that's gotten in there. Check the metal mesh on the removed assembly for bits of glass that might be stuck in the mesh to keep them from getting into your motor later.
