Yes the small end goes to the impeller with the flange out. when the pump kicks on the water presure on the outside of the impeller pushes it out against the diffuser and stopps the loss of pressure there and it makes the pump as efficent as it is.

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.

I have Aquaflo XP2 3 HP pump. I have removed old seal and need to install new seal. I have 2 seals, one with a spring in it that goes next to the impeller and another that has a black end and a white end....

Thank you for posting your question here on

The rotating assembly, with the spring, goes on the back of the impeller with the shiny carbon face away from the impeller. That face mates to the white ceramic face of the stationary portion. The rubber (black) boot seals the white ceramic into the pump housing. The cardboard 'ring' is provided to allow you to press in the stationary portion without touching it. You DO NOT want to touch either seal face (The shiny parts that rub against each other once you are done). Doing so can cause a brand new seal to leak.

When you replace the impeller be sure the wear ring goes on with the wide side out (away from the impeller) and you lube the "O" rings before you put the pump back together so It does not bind. I hope this helps, good luck.

Impeller replacement

The spacer plate (called a wear ring) should indeed be installed between the front plate and the impellor. The wear ring should be installed the correct way around, with the flat face against the front plate. Assuming that you're fitting the front plate correctly each time (it only fits on one way) there shouldn't be any issues. I can only assume that you have either fitted the incorrect impellor or it hasn't been tightened fully onto the motor shaft.

Hope this helps,
Ian Kime.

Put a small rock under your gas peddle. Wear smaller shoes. Put a thumb tack into your shoe facing up. Push your gas peddle with a long plastic straw. Go on shorter trips. Take taxis. Think electric cars. Bicycling is good for your heath, think about it.
