My Maytag model mdb9600aws motor shaft seal is leaking. How do I remove the seal and replace a new one. I am a novist, but I have taken the motor completely out and replaced the seal / gasket that the motor sits in, but there still is a leak. I am afraid the leak is going to destroy the motor as it has corrosion / salt like stuff about the motor. I have attempted to pry the shaft off with the use of 2 screw drivers. I was thinking since I am going to replace the whole motor shaft seal and chop


You are wise to realize the leak would destroy the motor.Take a close look at the diagram to see everything that gets placed on the motor shaft. That should give you a good idea what can/must be removed from that shaft. ... Maytag MDB9600A Jetclean II Built-in Dishwasher

My Whirlpool wdf530payw dishwasher is not draining. I ran the service diagnostics using the control panel, and the code that came back was Function code 8, and Error code 2 "Drain Motor Electrical Problem". The possible causes listed are: a. Loose Connection in drain motor circuit, and/or open drain motor winding. b. Open Fuse on control to drain motor c. Faulty drain motor drive circuit on the control When I hit the "Cancel/Drain" button there's an faint buzzing sound for about 2 minut

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?

Blown Motor DW is about 16 months old. Started making some real bad noise. Lasted about a minute and then had a death howl. Called in repair tech who says motor is blown. $399 for repair which includes $125 for the part. I've rebuilt car engines, so can probably replace a DW motor. Any insight on how to replace the motor? is it worth paying 275$ for labor? Just bugs the hell out of me paying $400 bucks for a repair when i can get a new one for $450.

I was trying to wash dishes and i noticed that the motor wasn't running but water was filling up the unit. I smelled something burning, and i shut it off and took off the cover and i felt the motor and it was very hot to touch. I assume the motor is frozen. How do I change the motor? Is my diagnostic accurate?

Something is causing the DW motor not to fire (so water is not sprayed around). It fills fine. It drains fine. I've tested the motor - it also works. I've tried all the various cycle choices; all do the same thing. Water fills but is not pushed around the tub (absolutely no motion from the motor, whatsoever). There was some debri down in the bottom, but I've cleaned it all out, wiped everything clean, and still no motor activation.

I am getting a buzzing noise from my electric motor. i tried changing the capacitor but still no change. The motor starts up sometimes but starts making a noise.Isusupect the winding or a bearing in the electric motor. How do I strip the motor from the pump?

I have a SMEG DWF614 SS dishwasher. I continue to get an E8 error message. The diverter valve motor turns freely & the motor turns freely when they are seperated. However, when they are assembled, the motor turns the valve & continues to try turning the valve when the valve is on its stop position. Is the motor & valve faulty or is it the control. If you can answer, what part number would I require. Regards Leighton Davies

I have a Craftsman power washer model 580 752020. When I start it up, turn on the switch the electric motor runs fine until I either close the trigger to the spray nozzle or press the trigger for power spray. The electric motor just shuts down, if I take my finger off the pressure and let the water run with no presssure the motor runs fine. My question is this. Is the capasitator on the electric motor the probable cause and is there a way to check out the capasitator to see if it is malfuncti

I'm attempting to reuse a Maytag dishwasher motor for a bench grinder. Since this is a reversible motor, I'm not sure how to connect the wiring to a simple switch so that it works in one direction only. The motor has 4 wires: blue, gray, red, yellow. Not sure which to connect to the hot (black), return (white) and ground (bare) wires from the romex and can't find a wiring diagram online for this dishwasher. Any ideas? Thanks.

My GE trash compactor just quit working. A little over 1 year old. I opened it and found inside the motor frame a magnetic contact that is burned up. Nothing else is wrong. This part shouldn't cost more than $10 . I can't find it anywhere. Do I have to buy a new motor for $180 to replace a perfect motor with a burned up $10 contact?


Parts sadly, aren't as inexpensive as they used to be. Hopefully, you can get away with the $25 part.\015\012\015\012http://www.repair ... GE Dishwashers
