Question about Frigidaire 24 in. PLD3465REC Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

The wash pump is leaking, not at the larger joining o-ring seal, but through the vents in the bottom of the motor just past the blade/rotor. Is there a small o-ring inside that is on the shaft that may be leaking? Is there a schematic breakdown of this motor somewhere? I already ordered a new one, and will "play" with the old one to see if I can fix it, just looking for some direction.

The shaft seal has failed. Often the top ball bearing becomes noisy after having the water leak through it. The seal is probably a lip seal rather than an O ring.

Our fisher and paykel dishdrawer won't wash. It comes up with F1 and flashing light on control panel.


the dynamo dishwashing stuff has caused foaming which reached the base of the dishdrawer unit causing the flood switch to trip. This gives F1 error.
Not sure how much foaming has occured.

Best to turn off power and take power cable out from socket. then empty the drawer using towels. pull out the bottom drawer and wait a day or so to let the foam disappear from the bottom of dishwasher (under the bottom drawer). Connect the power and see if F1 had gone. If not, you need more work. Post a comment based on the above suggestion and I will guide you further if required. Always use Finish dishwasher power only (recommended quantity) as the drawers are small and don't need much detergent.

2003 honda shadow 750 ace water pump gasket leaking. Can I replace the gasket only?


There is a round o-ring that seals the water pump to the motor (oil seal). Then there is a shaped cover o-ring that seals anti-freeze into the pump. The cover o-ring is also replaceable. If your pump has coolant leaking it is probably coming from a small weep hole in the bottom of the pump. Check where the leak is carefully, my guess is that the water pump seal is bad and you actually need to replace the water pump assembly. To see a break down of the pump look here.

Wont build pressure past 60 psi


If you have oil-less type of compressor you may be leaking pressure past cylinder/piston ring or just air leak. Easy to check. Spray soapy water on all connections, first with pressure in tank and motor shut off, then once again with motor running/pumping. Repair as needed. If no leaks remove cover to motor and move piston to top of cylinder and examine condition. If you see scratches neer top of cylinder, then pressure is leaking past vinyl ring. If cylinder looks shiny and smooth and piston vinyl seal looks intact, suspect problem with reed valves or head gaskets. Parts are avilable at sears parts on the web. Good holidays expensive.

I replaced the motor on my super 2 pump with a new shaft seal. Put it all back together including electrical and now it's leaking from the bottom. I retightened the screws to make sure they weren't loose...


Most likely leaking from either the shaft seal, or the valute seal (big seal plate o-ring). When you replaced the motor you should have also replaced the shaft seal. If not go back and do that whether it's leaking or not. If you get your head down and look at the bottom of the pump while it's running you should be able to see the water coming from the joint between the seal plate, and the seal plate housing, or just behind that from the bottom of the motor probably from the vent holes in the motor housing. If it's coming from the motor then the shaft seal is leaking, and the water is traveling along the shaft and out the bottom of the motor. This will eventually get into the motor and seize up the bearings. If it's coming from the valute seal, then you need to either replace or re-seat the seal. As a general rule you should always replace the shaft seal, and diffuser and seal plate o-rings when you replace the motor or split the seal. I'm not as familiar with the 2 speed hayward super 2, but the standard super 2's have a small ribbon seal, often called a rubber band. They are infamous for going bad especially after pulling the pump apart.

Pump is leekin water


there are a couple of places where the pump may leak. The discharge fitting, the seal plate o-ring, or the shaft seal. If the shaft seal is leaking, water will be dripping from the bottom of the pump where the motor mates to the seal plate.

Leaking where the motor drive and plastic pump join together.


Hi just read your posting.I have had this same problem at a customers house last week.Now the reason the pump doesn't come off is because the motor shaft that turns the pump is corroded, therefore it is jamming the pump on.The only way to get it off is to tap it off with a hammer.Once the pump is removed, clean the motor shaft with sandpaper and refit a new pump.Unfortunately you cant replace the seal on the pump because it is a molded unit.Hope this helps and please reply for further help if needed.

Washer is leaking, but I dont know why


Hello, the most likely cause is the pump. Whirlpools are direct drive machines which means they do not have a belt2.gif. The pump is hooked up directly to the motor. To confirm this is the pump tip the machine back so that you can access it underneath. Make sure you wedge something underneath so it does not fall on you. Next take a look where the pump joins onto the motor shaft, this is where you will find the leak. This pump is a sealed unit so you will have to replace the whole pump. You can do this by removing the inlet and outlet pipes. Next with a screwdriver release the 2 clips holding the pump and remove the pump.....reassemble with new pump in reverse order. Good Luck!! If you have any further question's please feel free to comment. Mike
