Question about Whirlpool Dishwashers
We fixed the impeller on the washer and its nice and quiet now and actually starts to run but then kicks off on its own and won't finish. I don't think its spinning freely and was wondering if anyone knew if we missed a step somewhere in the instilation of the new impeller and chopper or if we needed to do something else? HELP, its close to Christmas and I have 20 people comming for dinner. I NEED my dishwasher.... Thanks...
I have a PAV2300 and I recently experienced a grinding noise. Turned out to be the pump pully has a sleve between the pully and the bearing that has slid out of position. I took the pump out and using a small bladed screwdriver, wedged it between the selve and the base of the pump and working my way around it several times, managed to press it back into place. On the PAV2300 the pump is in the back of the unit. Looking at the picture the sleve is between that pully and the black base. Hope this helps. Good luck :)

This is not the turbo it is the over-powering the clutch, it happens in 5th because that is when most worn clutches slip, it is the biggest load, replace your clutch.

Could be a bearing problem. If the bearings are dry and seizing up they will hinder the motor speed. Alternatively, if they are worn and allowing lateral movement in the motor the armature will rub against the field windings when it all magnatizes (sp?). I would investigate bearings before electrics. Hope this helps, good luck.

you can replac the chopper as a seperate part, but will quickly clog, and destry ohter parts of the unit if removed. dont take this the wrong way but if you have a garbage disposer already rinse the dishes better to avaid further clogging of chopper
