I am back to the fabulous applaintology website once again. Hoping your advice can save a Friggy dishwasher one more time. This time I had a really hard time finding where the leak is coming from. I am afraid dish soap was run through a couple of times and may be a culprit but maybe not.

Could you please help me diagnose and hopefully find an easy fix for this leak.
Here is the pic.

PS Round I: Was great, the score cards show 10-8 in favor of the Ikkō-ikki appliantologist. Friggy front seal is working great. Here.

Wow.
I really am going to have to buy a new pump. Sucks that a perfectly good pump is just because the plastic got knocked a little catty whomp ass.

So, I pulled the motor. The head of the thing got knock out of place by a chunk of food or plastic or something. It clicked right back into place, the gaskets look a-ok, but after I reinstalled it, still leaks. Took it out again. The plastic is just so slightly warped, it must have sat too long bent up.

I cant find or dont know if its possible to replace the plastic.
Anyway, I have a nice little pic. It shows how the front seal is compromised somehow and it leaks back into the motor, somehow and drains out the vent.

Edit: The red arrow on the bottom should have a caption "Leaks out here."
Bottom line, I need a new pump? And the gaskets are included, right?

Did I miss sumpin? Cant you just buy the new gaskets? Yes, the price is absurd at $22 a piece but, according to my Old Skool math, that's still a C-note less than buying the whole pump. :kopkrab:

I have only replaced approx 1/2 dozen of those motors, but anytime I ordered them, they came without the seals - the part link shows it without - You may need to order them as well

It's about 50/50 whether or not the seals are included with the pump on the various pump part numbers. When I see the word "kit" attached to the part description, it usually means the seals come with the pump.

Also, pull the pump and inspect the shroud around the impeller. These are known for coming loose and making a loud sqeal that comes and goes as the plastic floats back and forth...

We, the unwilling, led by the unknowing, are doing the impossible for the ungrateful. We have done so much, for so long, with so little, we are now qualified to do anything with nothing.

I really doubt it's the o-rings leaking. Since water is coming out the weep hole that would tell me the main motor shaft bushings have worn out causing the impeller seal to leak, (which isn't an uncommon occurance in these cheap garbage Frickadare dishwashers).

I thought it might be the gasket but it really looks to be in pretty good shape. I am thinking the plastic looks a little out of shape, maybe 1/16" or so, like something was lodged in there for a while. Does this gasket just make a seal between the internal parts, does the gasket = leaking outside the machine? Does the water dripping out the "weep hole" (sorry not a vent), mean something, as Budget mentioned?

Having problems with the quick reply working since Samurai installed the new "TOOLS" at the bottom of the screen, posted a reply and it won't post. Had go to more reply options to post.

You need to replace the motor to fix your problem, the o-ring seals are not the problem if the water is coming out the hole in the center of the slots in the above picture, (that is a weep hole for water to exit the motor if/when the impeller seal fails). There are no replacable parts on these motors.

The above post should not be in this discussion but I can't delete it, forum is acting screwy when I tried to delete or edit the above post.

I know, I know... it was a late night 'spearmint during one of my rare periods of sobriety. Got up this morning, popped a cold Kirin, came to my senses and deleted that frikkin' toolbar. Back to normal. Ahhh.... :gulp:

During the "Spearmint", the Appliantology Logo was out, and was unable to gain access to user profiles. Was one of those "here we go again" moments.

None of the "rollover" features would work either.
