Question about Kitchen Ranges

2 Answers

Our pump was leaking at the cast iron casing. We replaced the seal assembly, however it still leaks through the assembly onto the motor shaft and runs out at drain hole on the cast casing. Are you able to send through a clearer description & diagram of which direction the seals are facing in the seal assembly. Otherwise please give other troubleshooting. With thanks and kind regards, Ian Rolph

    These two suggestions are of absolutely no help.

    The pump is a ONGA JSP110

    We are asking for a diagram of the assembly if possible

    Thanks, Ian

Onga 4352 Spa Pump is leaking from the opening in the bottom of the pump. I have opened it & siliconed the Oring seal but it continues to leak. Any suggestions?


I had a new pump brought to me once that continued to leak after replacing the shaft seal three times. Careful examination revealed a sand casting fault in the pump body. The water was leaking through the body of the pump. Have you replaced the shaft seal?

Dishwasher leaking from bottom


If you are sure this is not coming from the door, then it is probably leaking from the pump. The motor is outside the dishwasher and the pump is inside. The shaft of the motor has to turn the pump, so there is a seal that the motor shaft goes through. You might be able to replace just the seal, or maybe the whole pump or maybe the whole motor/seal/pump assembly. This can be fixed by a handyperson with some serious skills. Parts are available on-line. But it has to start with a pretty serious dis-assembly. The price you would pay to have this professionally fixed is up there comparable to a new cheap dishwasher. Good luck!

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.

Leaking #1 pump on Arctic Spas Cub hot tub.


I found out that the pump impeller can be unscrewed from the motor shaft by turning the impeller while keeping the shaft from rotating. There is a brass shaft coupling embedded in the back side of the impeller. This allowed me to remove the leaking seal assembly inside the pump by tapping it out gently. However, instead of just replacing the seal, I decided to replace the entire pump with a newer version. Cost was only about $25 more than replacing the seal and gaskets. The pump-motor assembly has been reinstalled in the spa and there are no more leaks.

This sounds like you have a bad seal in your pump and the loose piece is probally a piece on the shaft of the motor called a water slinger. This is just there in case your seal goes bad and leaks water it will spin with the motor and sling the leaking water out and away from the motor so a small leak does not ruin your motor. But you will still need to replace your seal and "O" ring.

Water runs out of the bottom of the washer as rinse water runs in. Washer if top loading Whilrpool. Model #WTW5840SWO


Check the pump assembly ( this is a common pump ) first for a leaking problem, check fill valve, hoses, and center seal under the outer tank in the middle where the transmission goes inside the washer. The button catcher ( on older style washer ) on the side of the outer tank is also bad for leaking. See #'s 16, 17, 18 for the button catcher, grommet and clamp. Replace them all at the same time, the grommet is glued as well as clipped into the outer tank. With the use of plastic drain hoses on many machines today, this has become a common leak trouble maker. The drain hose can rub the wall or a pipe and this will rub a hole in the drain hose.

Changing a pump tips: This pump is pressed onto the motor shaft. The motor shaft often starts to rust and the shaft swells out and holds onto the pump...tightly!! Often need to...remove power, remove the pump clips, remove the hoses from the pump assy. if the pump assy will not lift off of the motor shaft, you may need to remove the motor & pump together and break off the pump assy. A hammer and flat screwdriver can usually crack the old pump so it can be replaced. Sand/clean the motor shaft before installing the new pump.

My transmission is leaking..plz help!


If it isn't leaking from the Input seal, (The seal where the torque converter shaft goes into), then I suggest it's leaking from the Front Pump seal. Torque converter removed, look at the large round object, that has bolts going around it, and a shaft coming out the middle. The Input seal is in the middle. The large round object is the Front Pump. There is a large rubber O-ring that goes around the Front Pump. This O-ring can deteriorate, and leak. It can also blow out partially, due to inner damage of a spring clutch.

One thing I would like to advise you on. The Inner seal installation.

You should use the proper tool to remove it. You should use a seal puller. Also, when using a seal puller, the seal puller head can dig into the Front Pump cast iron case.
This can create a gouge, in the recess where the outside of the seal sits. This will create an area to leak.
Use caution when removing an Inner seal, and only have the seal puller head just far enough in, that it catches about half, of the inner seal -> metal outer ring. Past the rubber part of the seal, past the spring, and onto the metal outer ring of the seal itself. But, not far enough that the seal puller head will touch the Front Pump case recess.

If you did gouge the recess of the Front Pump case, clean the area with a clean shop rag. Use a half round file, and carefully remove the burr that the gouge creates. When a gouge is created, it upsets the metal. The gouge makes a 'valley', and a burr is created on the top edges of this 'valley'. That burr needs to be filed down to the rounded recess surface. Follow up with sandpaper. Wipe it out with a clean shop rag. Wrap a clean shop rag around the shaft, so that no metal fillings can get inside the Front Pump, and blow that recess out with air. Wipe the recess area again, with a clean shop rag.

To install an Inner seal, lightly coat the outside metal ring of the seal, with silicone. I use high temp Red. Failure to do this may cause a leak. Do this if you have a gouge or not. If you have a gouge, put a little extra silicone in that gouge, and fill it up. Don't use too much, but make sure the gouge is filled.

Either use a seal installation tool, or fabricate one out of Schedule 80 pipe, and have one end milled flat, and the corners rounded a little. The pipe must be large enough to fit against the flat outer lip of the seal.
Put the seal in place. Push on it, try to keep it flat and even. Put the seal installation tool on the seal. Tap on one side of the installation tool, then tap on the other, until you get a good start. Good start being the seal starts to go in, and is even all the way around. Then take you hammer, and tap around the outside edge of the installation tool. Go around and around. Watch how the seal is going in. If it starts to tilt off to one side, stop. Remove the seal. Start over. It must go in even all the way around, as it's being installed.

Failure to keep it even as it's installed, will twist the seal, and the seal's spring will pop out. Now you have a twisted seal, and no spring. The seal is junk!

BE SURE, to apply a thin light coat of transmission fluid, to the inner part of the seal. The area where the torque converter shaft will spin in. FAILURE to do this, might cause the torque converter shaft to twist, the inner rubber part of the seal, and twist the seal in half. The seal is then junk!

Leaking hot tub motor


hi! there,
well occassionaly leak on pumps this is due to the mechanical shaft seal has been worn out.If you can do fix your self

have you seen hydro pump,the motor assembly was couple to pums assembly.thereare 4 long bolts connected holding motor to pump assembly at the back of motor loosen this to disengage
motor and pump assembly,try to put mark on motor back cover
for reference in putting back.if motor is disengage on pump assembly, of course the rotor of motor still connected on pump assembly.

the shaft seal is connected to the rotor shaft inside pumps assembly,there are 4 bolts holding pump casing front cover loosening this will appear the centrifugal blade connected to rotor shafting holiding by a big nut at tip of rotor shaft.loosen this by socket wrench try to find the size,then pull centrifugal blade with
the shaft seal,buy this one with same specification exact value of shaft seal,if there is mistake buying seal either leak again or to tight.shaft549ea12.jpgso this type is just sample to have idea,afterr you purchased put it back and reassemble the pump motor.thi is easy one, have a nice day don't forget to rate me. thank's

GE 24in GSD980X Dishwasher water leak in pump &motor area


I had the same problem. There is no way of replacing seal/joint between pump and motor. It can't be taken apart w/o destroying parts, it only comes as an assembly. Costs around 130$ for pump/motor assy, so it might not be worth it.
