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 also had a mdbh940aww that leaked from underneath. You need to check out where the water is leaking from. Unscrew and remove the bottom front panel so you can view under the dishwasher. Start up the dishwasher and using a flashlight see where the water is dripping from.. Obviously don't touch any wires nor even the leaking water while it is live. If it is coming out of the motor then you probably have a bad WASH MOTOR SEAL and you will need to buy a WASH MOTOR SEAL KIT (Seal and Chopper Kit) ... I think I paid $25. I noticed that they re-engineered the replacement part out of metal to replace the original plastic part which strips. So I replaced the seal kit which solved the leak problem... but I still have some residue on glasses. It may be due to a small rip in the filter material on the FILTER/FLOWPLATE ASSEMBLY (Accumulator)... that I noticed... a $35 part... I am going to take mine back apart and see if I can glue the rip with some silicone sealant. You can view the schematic and get parts at partselect.com although I think I ordered from a cheaper store but I cannot remember what that was. Goodluck!

Dishwasher spray arm.


There is no lubricant or adhesive that you need to put down. However if you removed that seal around the motor shaft you will need to replace it with a new one. Once that seal is broken it won't sit right again. When you buy a new dishwasher motor or heater it comes with that seal new cause it won't go back on again right. Dishwashers are a real pain to work on, they have so many little parts and so many picky parts that it just makes them a pain to work with. What ever you do just never buy yourself a Bosh. The way they built those, they can only be worked on by taking the entire machine apart to the floor. Let me know if you have any other questions. I'm here to help.

Brand new dishwasher installed and water leaks out bottom of door


If your dishwasher leaks, check these:

Main tub seal
Door gasket or seal
Water-inlet valve
Hoses
Main tub seal Note…If the main motor of your dishwasher is mounted vertically, beneath thecenter bottom of the dishwasher, the following instructions probablyapply to you. But if your motor is mounted horizontally, the pump isn'tserviceable--you need to replace the entire pump and motor assembly.

Themain tub seal is beneath the drain impeller. It prevents the water inthe dishwasher from leaking out near the shaft of the motor. To get tothe seal, which is inside the dishwasher, remove the:

  • Lower rack


  • Spray arm


  • Spray arm support


  • Wash/drain impellers


Then pry the seal out of its housing and replace it.

Door gasket or seal Overtime, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to sealproperly. You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them ifthey've begun to leak.

Water-inlet valve Thewater-inlet valve, itself, seldom leaks. But, the water-supply linefrom the house and the rubber tube leading from the valve to the insideof the dishwasher may leak. Tighten or repair/replace these asnecessary.

The water-inlet valve could mechanically stick open.When that happens, the water continues to flow into the dishwasher,which then floods your kitchen. Turn off the water supply to thedishwasher, and replace the valve.

Hoses Behindthe lower access panel on your dishwasher are several rubber or plastichoses. If the leak appears at a connection, try a new clamp. If thatdoesn't work, replace the hose.

Leaking dishwasher


hi there,
dishwasher leaking might be due to either of these causes, check these:

Main tub seal
Note… If the main motor of your dishwasher is mounted vertically, beneath the center bottom
of the dishwasher, the following instructions probably apply to you.
But if your motor is mounted horizontally, the pump isn't serviceable--you need to replace the
entire pump and motor assembly.

The main tub seal is beneath the drain impeller. It prevents the water in the dishwasher from
leaking out near the shaft of the motor. To get to the seal, which is inside the dishwasher,
remove the:

* Lower rack
*Spray arm
* Spray arm support
* Wash/drain impellers

Then try the seal out of its housing and replace it.

Door gasket or seal
Over time, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to seal properly.
You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them if they've begun to leak.

Water-inlet valve
The water-inlet valve, itself, seldom leaks. But, the water-supply line from the house and the
rubber tube leading from the valve to the inside of the dishwasher may leak. Tighten
or repair/replace these as necessary.

The water-inlet valve could mechanically stick open. When that happens, the water continues

Hoses
Behind the lower access panel on your dishwasher are several rubber or plastic hoses. If the
leak appears at a connection, try a new clamp. If that doesn't work, replace the hose.

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.

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.
