It's great that you want to take the time & fix this issue with the dishwasher yourself. I did some research based on the part number & added a link below. Hope this is helpful!

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

If you're not able to hold the impeller stationary with a wrench and remove the screw, the screw is likely seized in the tip of the motor shaft and you will not likely be able to get it out. Now, if you have a reversing variable speed drill with an adjustable torque setting, place the correct size nut driver in the drill and set the torque setting about mid way and the impact action of the drill might possible break the screw loose and it may come out. If it does not come out then you will have to replace the pump and motor assembly which can be ordered from Sears Parts Direct.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

Hi joey, thank you for your answer. I was finally able to get it to loosen after enlisting my wife to hold the wrench on the impeller and I was able to use both hands on the screw. However I have two issues: 1) there is a very faint hairline crack in the motor shaft. It still holds the screw just fine, What are the potential consequences long term and short term. 2) After reassembling I turned on the machine to let it run and a full cycle and see what happens. Well, nothing really happened because I got no water. I didn't do anything with the water including turning it off at the source or at the knob mounted on the unit. All I did under the unit was check the out flow line to make sure it was clearing. Everything else I did inside the unit. Am going to check if the line is pinched but I don't think so, if that was the case I should have gotten low flow not not flow. So how have I messed this one up? Thanks again to everyone for your help.

Scot: Check the float located in the right front corner of the tub and make sure the float sitting all the way down. Make sure nothing is lying under the float preventing it from sitting all the way down. The float stem must pass through the float tube and press down and close the micro switch or it will not fill with water. The water inlet valve must receive 120 volts in order to open. If the water inlet valve is getting 120 volts, the valve is either faulty or there is no water supply. As to the hair line crack in the motor shaft; it should not cause any problems.

Joey I have checked out the float and I can hear it click and then I hear it click again. Almost like it is turning on then off. The float stem's tip is just a little nub of molded plastic that looks like something might attach to ie a little rubber tip. Am I missing something that would keep that micro switch turned on or does it sound broken?. Can you please direct me to the water inlet valve so I can check the volts?

A:

Joey don't worry about directing me to the water inlet valve. It is the micro switch. I got the little tip of the float stem to stay keep holding down the micro switch and it started. I am not confident that it will happen again without me tinkering with it. So the first part of my question is what I need to know, ie am I missing a rubber tip or something on the float stem or is it the switch itself. Thanks in advance for your help. Scot

Scot: There is no rubber tip on the end of the float stem. If you hear a faint click when you lift and lower the float dome, the switch is likely okay. The water inlet valve is located under the front to the dishwasher. The water inlet valve will have the water supply connected to it. You will need to remove the lower access panel below the door to access the water inlet valve. You will also be able to check the float switch too after removing the lower access panel. The water inlet valve can also be disconnected and tested with an Ohm meter for proper Ohm resistance. It should measure 695-995 Ohms of resistance. The water inlet valve also needs 120 volts in order to open and let water in.
