6 posts in this topic

:yikes:i have been working on fixing this monster myself. just bought the home, and it was left behind. cleaned up major clacium deposits and discovered parts you could not see before!! anyhoo...replaced the doorseal cuz it was leaking...then found a big puddle in my basement after it leaked again! took the whole puppy apart, and discovered a wide gasket at the very bottom of the tub that seems to surround the motor. bought the gasket...but, can not get this gasket out...read in here somehwere on a different model that i will probably need to take the motor off from underneath to replace this...i wish i had started with replacing the little itty bitty seal that goes in the upper piece (pump) i think.:yikes: any advice?

Read this thread. Pay particular attention to the part about obtaining and reporting a valid model number.

:bathead: so, i have read the post you instructed me to, and realize that i am no grasshopper, i am but a wish to be a grasshopper!

hmmm, model number. i am scared because i can find nothing with 3 digits, a period and then numbers after. the tag in mine says: serial number 230456610, Model KDS-19, ML 34331. those are listed in boxes across the top of the tag. Then the next line has info about volts, hz, motor amps, etc. so, i hope this is a true model number. it is a kitchenaid made by hobart, suberbra. if this is not enough info, please be gentle in your scolding.;)

this is the part i am trying to replace

http://www.repairclinic.com/0081.asp?RccPartID=2932

found it by using your handy "part detective". it is called "Main tub gasket for pump housing"

however, after taking out all the parts until i get to that gasket, it will not lift out, and appears to go down under what is probably the motor. does the whole motor have to come out? and i am guessing that would pulling it out and dumping it sideways to get to it? arghhhh.
