KENMORE MODEL No. C110 794500 (Note: This is a Canadian made dishwasher for Sears, so the model number may be different from USA model numbers). I am having trouble removing the upper pump housing of the dishwasher pump. I have removed the little blue locking tab on the front and am only able to counter-clockwise rotate the upper housing about 1/4". How far does the housing have to turn? It is really stuck. I have been pushing on the 3 white tabs that hold the coarse blue screen/particle filter in place. I have even broken one tab off. Any suggestions? 

Thanks in advance.

that is a very old style pump/motor- you are on the right track,but the plastic pieces becomw swelled and brittle over time-even when the units were newer,i used to carry the plastic pump outlet etc,as they would inevitably break during disassembly. you can always just remove the entire pump module from the dishwasher to make it easier to work on- remove the drain stem from housing by turning c/c wise(underneathe dishwasher)- swivel the 4 rubber mount retainers inward to the motor-disconnect wire harness, and push the entire module upward through the inside of the machine- you will probably be faced with replacing the module anyway- last i looked was about $300.00 retail,so you may be further ahead to purchase new d/w  choice is yours.

Here's the one you need I believe but not sure because I have nothing to look up Canadian model numbers.

Here's the one from RepairClinc for $133.20 + shipping CLICK HERE

yes,thats the one i speak of,guess we have a bit of markup here in canada- must be another form of "hidden taxes" that we pay for our illustrious government(2 pensions after 3yrs of service etc.)

The problem is that the pump makes a lots of noise when draining. I thought I could take it apart and clean the impeller for the usual contaminents. However, it will not budge and I don't want to break it as it still works. Thanks all for your help, but considering the probable age of the dishwasher (it came with the house), it's better to buy a new one as the racks are rusting and the door seal is deteriorating. The timer is the next to go.

Great site though!

probably your best choice,grasshopper considering the age of those type of pump modules. whatever you choose to replace it with(recommend bosch or f&p),do us all and yourself a favor and don't cheap out on the new installation,be sure and install unit as recommended(even if the odd expense is there) as it will ensure satisfactory operation and future reliability.
