All of a sudden, my dishwasher has become very loud. Obviously something
wrong with the pump, motor assembly (one or the other or both). I would
like to take a look down into the assembly from the inside but I have no
clue on how to remove the washarm and whatever else needs to be removed to
take a look. I suspect something might be in the impeller (?) or whatever
I know the truth is out there, but I like to stay in...
The arm usually lift right off. Under it, there may be a screen of some
sort to filter the water so do some poking around. Once you remove the arm,
turn the shaft by hand and listen for the noise ad it may help you find the
The arm did not lift off. It actually screws off. There is a plastic
threaded piece at the top of the washarm assembly that holds the washarm.
New problem, however: I can't seem to find a way past the filter. Moving
it feels like I'm moving the motor and everything else that's in there. The
washarm assembly is held down with some sort of screw but I don't recognize
the head at all. Don't know if it's torque or phillips. Are different
types of screws used in dishwashers or what's the shortcut here?
