My Whirlpool Quiet Partner (DUC600XTPQ7) makes a continuous noise when it is operating...I checked the chopper..no clogs... reassembled it and the noise continues. From other posts it looks like I should replace the motor....I read one of Gene's posts that said it was easier/more reliable to replace the combined motor and pump than just the motor...

1. what part is that?
2. HOW do you replace it? are there directions somewhere? Is it a hard repair?

Thanks!!!

Here are your parts
Replacement parts for WHIRLPOOL DUC600XTPQ7 UNDERCOUNTER DISHWASHER | AppliancePartsPros.com

The pump/motor assembly is Item 14 in Section 8.

Here is a manual that should help with the replacement.
The unit is not an exact match to yours but the pump assy looks the same.

I would give it a try and I am also just relatively handy.
Just take your time mark or make a diagram of anything that can connect in more than one way.

Also I am a big fan of putting a very light coating of lithium grease on gaskets/seals etc. before installing. It just seems to help things go in easier.

Yes it is and the odds of having problems down the road are less.

Throw a quart or two of hot water into the unit before starting it up after the repair. Pumps do not like to run dry.
