Question about Whirlpool Dishwashers
Whirlpool Model # DU8300XX-0. Motor seal is leaking. Have removed 3 screws holding motor to plastic impeller housing. Removed gray plastic piece that screws into other end of impeller housing. How do I remove brass bushing and impeller to remove motor ? Thanx. Doug.
The 8 in the Model # may be a B. ( DUB300XX-0 ) My eyes aren't as young as they used to be. :-)

I believe that you must buy the plastic pump housing.....And that vinyl type shaft seal comes with that..I think!!!!
I have the same problem.....I changed the regular seal kit at a cost of $30.00 CND....Which is like what? 100.00 American.
Anyways mine still leaks after all that. Turns out there is so much rust between the nylon seal that is attached to the motor shaft, that water works its way down there. Funny that seal does not come with the common seal replacement kit. Im going to check tomorrow to see If I can get that seal alone. My concern is that after I drive for another hour one way to get that seal. Am I only going to put it on just to find out that the shaft is pitted to much by the rust to seal again? I am so tired of buyin ****!!!!!!

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!

try it by using a high torck screw driver then the direction for loosening the screw is anticlock wise.

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.
Ask more questions once you have gotten the items off the shaft. OK?
