Question about Washing Machines

Greetings, I just replaced the Chopper

Greetings, I just replaced the Chopper Impeller on my dishwasher (du915pwkb0).
When I turn on the dishwasher the motor go on for 3 seconds and then shuts off.
It only spins very slowly for the three seconds. The motor is not frozen and spins freely when I give it a turn with my hand.
Do you have any idea what’s going on with this motor?

Hiya,
as with most instalations or reinstalations after repair the most common fault for a non responcive machine is forgetting to turn the water tapes back to the on posistion so i would 1st surgest that you double check you have returned the water feed to the on posistion, No water feed will prevent the machine running properly.

Hope this helps

How do you replace the drain pump in a kenmore model 665.1307


Does the model number end in k210, k211, k212 k213 or k214.
Posting the whole number may help others help you, otherwise...

The drain compartment is typically located beneath the circulating compartment. Remove the lower rack, spray arm, pump cover and filter assembly to gain access. Inspect the drain impeller for damage or wear and replace.
Also check that the food chopper is in good condition and not allowing large food particles to clog the drain outlet, and that both the chopper and impeller are turning freely.

My kitchenaid KUDI01DL dishwasher began making a lot of noise while running, then subsequently decided not to circulate the water around to wash the dishes. It sounds like the motor is running (maybe) but...


The problem is very likely in the chopper and/or somewhat possible in the impeller. The chopper is replaceable from the front. Disassemble the pump, the chopper will be on its left side under a cover. That cover is kinda tricky to remove (remove all torx screws you can find, push the thingy on the top of cover with flat screwdriver to the right, slightly pulling it up).
The impeller used to be a replaceable part, and is no longer available separately, so you'd have to replace the whole motor assembly. To get to it - pull dishwasher out and lay it down on its back (or on its side, if there's no water in it)

Good luck!

The dishwasher is making a "buzzing" type of noise. I've taken out everything and it's still doing it--seems to be coming from the motor.


You'll need to clean and possibly replace the chopper and/or impeller.To get to the chopper you need to remove all parts you can from the pump assembly inside the dishwasher.
To get to the impeller you'll need to pull the dishwasher out and remove the motor.
Finally, there is still chance that the noise is from the motor itself. Good luck!

Kenore Elite Dishwasher


Either:

1. the water does not get into the dishwasher open the dishwasher 3-4 times during cycle, you should see some water at least once, if not - check water valve, water level float and water pressure.
2. the pump is clogged - there is water, the motor will run but no water is circulated. Check pump filters, check chopper and impeller.
3. motor in main pump is not working - could be caused by something stuck on the impeller or chopper or could be a problem with the motor itself or control board. Check if line voltage is coming to the motor during wash/rinse cycle.

Good luck,

Dishwasher starts to fill then just hums


Sounds like a motor problem. Behind the chopper is an access to the impeller, try turning the impeller or the chopper blade and see if the motor will rotate. If it doesn't, then something is stuck preventing the motor from running.

I have a Kenmore Dishwasher, it appears to go through the cycle, but it will not remove the water from the dishwasher, the dish detergent and water are at the bottom of the dishwasher


If you truly have power and the thermal fuse isnt blown you may need a new impeller. My impeller and the waste chopper went bad when my son left something on a plate. It broke the impeller and bent the chopper. It wasnt cheap but I did it myself. Make sure you replace to old gasket with a new one, supplied in the kit.

Pump disassembly


I removed the impeller on my DW761UQB. The instructions were molded into the plastic pump housing. This is how I DID MINE: Remove motor mount screws. Remove the chopper screw (screw only goes into impeller, not motor shaft). Remove chopper and rotate/remove strainer. Place socket or wrench on impeller tip and place another wrench on rear of motor's plastic fan. Unscrew fan from impeller shaft ( threads are LEFT handed, turn CW). Once fan is 'backed off' of the impeller, CAREFULLY pry the motor/fan from pump housing (impeller is attached to motor shaft via splines). Don't crack the delicate plastic pump housing. Mine was stuck, but separated with moderate force. Now remove the impeller/seals from the pump housing. This worked for MY above mentioned model, I don't know what other models it applies to. I am not a pro.

Whirlpool dishwasher model gu1200 not working


I checked. There is no sheet of any kind inside or below the door of my Whirlpool dishwasher.

In any case, opening up the non-washing washer revealed that the filter behind the chopper assembly was clogged with food. I cleaned it off, put the thing back together again, and it was washing dishes again, until about three days later. I took it apart again and found food clogging the filter behind the chopper. I thought the chopper wasn't chopping, so I replaced it. It was around $16. About three days later it wasn't washing dishes again.

Further examination (dis-assembly of the sump motor and impeller) revealed that the end of the impeller (which is designed to engage the chopper) had broken off, thus the chopper no longer spins with the sump motor. The impeller costs about $20 and isn't too hard to replace, as long and you keep track of what you've dis-assembled and put it back together in reverse order.

On whirlpool dishwashers, the sump motor drives the impeller (it's connected via the threaded end of the motor shaft) and the impeller, in turn, drives the chopper. The chopper you can replace from inside the tub, without removing the dishwasher from its home or taking apart the sump assembly. But save your $16, as that probably isn't what is wrong... The impeller, being screwed onto the motor shaft, requires complete removal of the dishwasher so that you can completely remove the base assembly that holds the motor assembly.

If you have a GU-series whirlpool washer, the tech manual can be found here:

It has complete instructions for the replacement of every part.

You need to remove the lower spray arm (the little plastic nut in the middle of the arm can be removed with a 3/8" nut driver), then the dome housing, then the impeller, then the entire cover. This gets you down to the motor where the chopper blade is at. There's probably something hard that's getting in the blade. If you don't find anything, you'll need to replace the motor and the seal kit, which includes the blade and the seal that does not come with the motor.
