Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

I have Kenmore dishwasher Model # 66517795791, and I need to remove the impeller to clean underneath the screen. When I hold the impeller and turn the screw in the center counterclockwise, it does not actually unscrew up and out.

Hi,
\015\012
\015\012It sounds by your description that you are going about it the correct way, but the impeller is likely spinning on the shaft, i.e. the flat spot`s on the inside of the drain impeller shaft are rounded, hence turning the wash impeller (which fit`s over top of the drain impeller for your model dishwasher) screw is just spinning the motor shaft and not loosening it. What that means is you`ll likely have to bust the wash impeller to remove it and install a new impeller kit. Be careful not to break the nut off in the motor shaft as that would spell replacing the entire motor and pump assy. I usually use a flat screw driver to cut around the perimeter of the nut in the impeller until I can remove it entirely and then grab the shaft with vice-grips.
\015\012
\015\012Once you remove the upper impeller (wash impeller) and chopper, you`ll than be able to remove the "torx" head screw`s holding the filter body in place to get the lower impeller (drain impeller) and face seal.
\015\012
\015\012The wash impeller, drain impeller, chopper, nut and seal as well as lower face seal come complete in kit number 675806 and should be available for about $30 or less if on sale at most appliance part stores and on-line part depots.

\015\012Hope that sheds some helpful insight into why it likely won`t come apart. That is the most common reason by far in my professional experience. Let me know if I can assist you further and thanks for visiting "fixya" today.

Hi,
\015\012
\015\012Inorder to remove the imperial please try to torque the 1/4 inch screw off with a nut driver. Need to just take the screw off in the motor shaft. Take a sharp chisel and gently pound down on the top edge of the impeller close to the screw. Crack it away from the shaft, then put penetrating oil on the screw and take it off. Let us know if you were looking for something more else please accept the suggestion.

Kenmore 17362 dishwasher was making a bad noise and now the motor seems to be locked up. I might have already un-jammed the motor by removing the cover on the bottom (inside), and turning the knife impeller on the outside of the screen, but I can see lint type material in the hole on the other side of the impeller. Hard to explain, but it is in the hole in the center of the unit and there is a screen like the knife impeller has behind it. I could clean this lint if I could get the door off. How

Mod #: MDB6600AWB Ser #: 16505148CG No water comes out of spray arms, checked and cleaned filter-OK. Wash impeller is cracked where it slides onto the hexagon rod but it you take the filter flow plate off and put the impeller back on, when you put the unit on rinse only and quickly open the door you can see it is still turning and moving the water. The unit still fills and drains. it just does not have enough force with the impeller to force the water into the spray arms.

The spray arm, above the top rack, keeps unscrewing during the wash cycle. Just the arm comes off leaving a round plastic part attached to the top. This can be unscrewed and inside is a white 'washer'. The arm can be clipped back but comes off again in the next wash. The plastic 'washer' has to be turned over to allow re-attachment. Is a washer missing from inside?


Could the arm be mounted upside down and rotating the wrong way? Just an idea... Some of these can fit either way and the retainer will fit either side of the arm. ... Frigidaire 24 in. PLD2850 Built-in Dishwasher

The note by FixAllPhil entitled "Poor cleaning or noisy pump on Whirlpool or Kenmore dishwasher" has a significant error. The first step should be to "Remove the lower wash arm (1) by turning the nut CLOCKWISE (right)". I damaged the threads on my dishwasher nut by trying to turn it counterclockwise. Once that error is corrected, please remove this post.

Maytag DWU6402AAB dishwasher hums but motor does not run. I've taken the inside apart down to the disk-shaped impeller. It turns freely so the pump and motor are not stuck. When control knob is turned motor hums at the places where it normally should run. The water valve & heating coil seem to be operationg normally. i assume the next step is to test the motor &/or motor relay. Is this correct and how do I do that?

I have a three-year-old Sears Kenmore Elite dishwasher. I find that despite the fact that we scrape and rinse our dishes before loading the machine, after each three months of use (two loads a day) or so, I have to take the machine apart (spray tower, racks, bottom impeller, bottom screen housing, food grinder cover) and clean-out the food grinder area, for it fills-up with sludge. The sludge restricts the water flow and there isn't enough flow to turn the impellers via that steering jets.

I do not use cheap cleaners only finish or morning fresh. It gets turned on approx every 2-3 days and the dishes actually go mouldy before it gets turned on.
