Question and Answers

Q:

Help with dishwasher

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern. 

The strange noise is likely the motor bearings if it's making a low growling type sound providing you did not find any hard objects or broken glass around the upper wash impeller or below where the drain impeller is located. If it is worn motor bearings, the complete pump and motor assembly should be replaced as an assembly.

Your pump had to have a pump gasket or the pump would not seat in the bottom of the tub and the tub would not hold water. The pump seal fits around the outer perimeter of the sump base in order to make the water tight seal where the pump sits in the bottom of the tub. A centering tool is not necessary.   Also, key #13, the pump outlet seal will stretch after removing and it will not fit back in the groove again. You will likely have to replace the pump outlet seal too. I added a couple of images below to reference if needed. Your pump will likely be little different than the one in the images but it's basically the same.

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

acwall04; I added an image below showing all the seals. If you did not remove the pump base, you will not need seal key#16. The only seal you will likely have to replace is key#13 because it will stretch and not lay in the channel correctly. I assume you removed all the parts down the pump base key#25. You do not need to worry about key#16 which fits around the pump base. I hope this is helpful.
