This motor comes as a module. The whole plastic assembly its in is part of the module. It comes out with 3 slide out releases around edge of module underneath.

holding the center nut for lack of better word and unscrewing the wash arm, the next piece will require turning clockwise while pulling up on the plastic lock tab holding to up spout for water supply, gives you access ot 5 torx screws, after that theres 2 more torx screws giving you access to the chopper/ impeller area, thats as far as youll be able to go.

Remove the bottom panel under the machine and you will see the pump and motor and work it out,IWOULD HOWEVER LIKE TO STRESS THAT IF YOU DO NOT KNOW HOW TO DO THIS RATHER PAY A QUALIFIED TECHNITION TO DO IT AS IF YOU DO IT AND SOMETHING GOES WRONG IT COULD COST YOU MORE AND THE MANUFACTURER WARENTY NORMALLY IS VOID IF A UNQUALIFIED PERSON FITS ANY ELECTRICAL PART,so please to save yourself a possible fortune rather pay a speciallist then pay twice for what could be once.

The sump and motor assembly can be replaced without taking the unit out of the cabinet and with some guidance, a handy person can do it themselves.

SOURCE: I need to remove the screen in my kitchenaid dishwasher

Generally the food grinder is just a small piece of wire looking material that sits behind a screen and grinds the smallest particles that get through..and try to grind down any larger pieces that happen to get through and those that don't generally clog the screen up. To remove and clean this assembly you will have to remove both dish racks (for work room) and then the sprayer arm which may unscrew from the top of the motor cover assembly....and then there are a series of screws, (may be hex head screws) that encircle the assembly...remove those and you will have a clear view of the entire assembly...a shop vac will come in handy as there will probably be water standing in the bottom...you should be able to see the screen and the little wire arm extension that acts as the grinder(if that's what they are using in your model) you should see a nut or screw that holds the screen in place...but you may not have to remove it if you can get to easily and vacuum out the food particles or clean it with an old toothbrush or something of the sort...I used to just clean them by rubbing the end of my flat head screwdriver over the face of the screen and thereby breaking up any lodged particles.


I hope this helps...please let me know by rating me...thank you ...The Fang

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)
Chopper
Motor

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!

Dishwasher makes a high pitch whine when it runs


instead of motor check out the motor impeller that can make the high pitched noise if rusted or cracked. ------------- Motor and pump assembly screw and impellor help....
 
One of the most common question that I get on a dishwasher repair is "how does that motor and pump impellor screw come out?"
Inside many dishwasher pump assemblies is a screw that goes through the upper impellor and screws directly into the motor shaft. Since the motor shaft and screw are made of metal...you guessed it...they can / will rust. The screw can rust and become very tight and difficult to remove!! These screws are normally a right ( regular ) hand thread, socket or nut driver can be used to remove the screw. One hard thing to do is to hold the impellor still so the screw can be removed, they often just turn together. The impellor may be jammed with a screwdriver to hold it still so the screw can be removed...sometimes the impellor can be help still by placing a rag on it and hold tight with your hand, the rag will help prevent a sharp edge on the impellor from cutting your fingers. The odd time that screw is too rusted into place, soaking a little rust buster or 3in1 oil on it over night may help loosen it. Sometimes trying to tighten the screw a little at first will help break it free. There are some tool ( see below ) that can be purchased to help hold the impellor still so the screw can be removed, these are only for a few models and pump assembly styles.
WLP seal tool helps center and install the pump seal
Frigidaire seal - impellor remover and install tool
Once the screw is removed, the next obstacle is the impellor can also get stuck onto the motor shaft. Many times I have to break off the old impellor. A sharp blow straight down with a hammer and flat screwdriver will often crack the plastic impellor...careful not to damage the pump body! If the motor shaft has indeed rusted, clean it up really good with sand cloth.

Loud whining noise while washing


It may be debris in the food chopper or the motor going bad.

Inspect food chopper:
Remove lower spray arm and rear water supply tube to upper spray arm. Remove torx screws that secure the sump cover. Remove the rounded cover on the left side to expose the chopper assembly. Inspect for breakage of blockage. There may be an additional plastic screen to remove first.
