Kenmore Quietguard3 NOT!

3 posts in this topic

I have a Kenmore Quietgaurd3 Model # 665.17609300 that has junk stuck that the food disposer can't take. I have tore it apart and cleaned out the matchstick  and the bread tie but I could not get the cover off of the impeller where the stuff goes into the food disposer. I didn't want to force it and break it. But it is still as noisy as ever so something has to be down there still. Any help will be appreciated!

This is a Whirlpool Dishwasher with the Kenmore name on the front,  see if this breakdown of the pump/motor will help you....

That impeller/mascerator cover can get stuck on there reeeel tight-like. After you remove its single retaining screw, git you a pair of slip jernt pliers, grab 'holt of one o' them ridges in that cover and yank like a New Hampshire Yankee.

Now, if you're lucky, you can clear out the macerator, start the dishwasher and you'll hear the wash motor run. I gotta tell ya, though: nine times outta ten, that washer motor gets burned out and you'll end up replacing the whole motor pump assembly. YOUCH!
