2002, Fisher Paykel, DD 6031 Dishwasher. Fins on the Impeller which is attached to the motor were damaged when something got caught inside. I cleaned up the the dents on the tips of the fins but am wondering what the part number is and where I can buy a replacement if this happens again and the fins are too damaged to work correctly.
Do I have to buy the whole motor assembly or does the impeller come off?

Please be a bit more specific when you say "Won't Start".
If you are able to set the program but nothing happens when you press the start button, then it is very likley the proximity switch that detects drawer close, is failing and not letting the controller start the cycle.
Check for restrictions in the motor, Pull the drawer all the way out, fold the side racks out of the way and lift the wire basket out of the tub. Lift the wash arm off Then twist the plastic ring and the lower metal plate will lift out. Grab the motor and twist anti-clockwise and pull up to remove, Check for anything stuck under there and look for any damage to the plastic on the tub or impeller. If the impeller is damaged you can either put up with it as it is or replace the impeller. e-assembly is just a matter of doing it all but backwards.
Looks like you do not have the user manual for this dishwasher. Refer this site.
Go to page 21 of manual and remove the filter plate. The rotor is attached to the impeller. Get it out and inspect. A replacement rotor can be got from this place if you are in US. Please rate the solution if you found it useful.
your pump has seized.To check remove all the dishes followed by the grey dish wrack wedged in the bottom. Lift off the plastic spray arm to reveal a grey plastic ring around the outside of the stainless mesh, and you will also see the blue plastic impeller. Turn this anti clockwise and lift out the whole stainless mesh cover. Then there is a brownish ring with the blue pump impeller on top. Turn this anticlockwise and the pump should lift straight up and out. My blue impeller had come off and lifted off with the brown ring leaving the rest of the pump stuck in the hole! I eventually managed to get it out without damaging the housing it fits into. Replace the motor/impeller unit and off you go.
Assuming you are using the correct detergent powder, check if the dishes are remaining dirty.
The water from the impeller may not be rushing up enough due to blockage or limited movement of impeller arm. Follow the insructions to clean the impeller, filter etc or check base of drawer for obstructions to impeller arm.
I suppose you have a double drawer dishwasher and this problem is with one of the drawers.
One cause of the impeller not rotating would be that there is some loose cutlerry lodged between the impeller arm and the base rack. This is easy just remove it.
HOwever, the other option is that the impeller itself is stuck. Try opening the filter base plate and removing the impeller rotor to check if no debris is lying around (usually food scraps).
The instructions to open the filter plate and exposing the impeller is in the user guide. If cleaning does not help then check nothing is stuck in the filter sump and the narrow passage connecting filter sump and the rotor cavity which is preventing the rotor from rotating.
The worst case scenario is the impeller rotor is faulty. You can buy this and replace yourself , ie, if you worked out how to remove it.
I have the same problem and after talking to a local service center and doing some online research (remember: Google is your friend) I have discovered this is considered a non-serviceable part and you must buy the entire motor. The impeller comes with the motor. This is probably not the answer you were hoping but is what you have to do. With that said, I plan to JB Weld the ****** back on the motor shaft!
