Konichiwa Y'all,

Got an Electrolux 18" dishwasher in a rental house where the tenant reported finding broken glass in the bottom of the tub and then a week or three later that the machine no longer ran but instead just made a horrible noise. Took a look (took it out and brought it home, actually, one good thing about an 18" unit), and sure enough, looks like enough junk got into the pump that many of the plastic bits are shredded. For example, the impeller in the bottom of the Lower Wash Arm Support (890314) is torn up good enough that it bears replacing. The motor appears to be fine.

Where the worst damage occurred, however, is where the metal motor shaft broke free of the plastic shaft it was pressed into and burned out a big hole in the end. And what appears to be an air impeller that cools the motor is also loose and spun bad enough that it's hole is all melted out. The horrible noise the tenant reported was was the air impeller flailing free on the metal shaft and screeching accordingly.

Does the "seal kit" (916856) I see on the parts site include that plastic shaft?

And is there anyway to get that air impeller part ?All the parts sites I see only show it as part of the motor. Or just hot glue or epoxy that torn up sucker on there and and spin it up to true it? Or just leave it off and plan on that motor having a shorter and toastier life?

I hoped so based on the picture for the seal kit. But a close look at the plastic part of the seal kit doesn't much look like the squared/splined plastic bit I need, and a closer look at the jillion dollar motor shows the blower and the splined shaft on the motor.

I'm thinking I might really need that blower/shaft?

You're going to need to order the complete motor/pump assembly. These are one of the biggest pieces of garbage for a dishwasher.

You break something, a small piece of glass or other debris gets down into the drain impeller and stops it and the plastic motor shaft that it is keyed to strips out. No way to repair the stripped out motor shaft except to replace the complete motor/pump assembly.

Just did some research and it appears part# 154582601 which used to be the complete motor and pump assembly with new drain impeller and seals from part ref#10 on down to the motor itself is no longer available and subs to just the motor ref#18/part#5304459468.

So now to repair a stripped out motor shaft and drain impeller you will need to order ref#12-drain impeller,#18-motor and #36-seal kit.

The plastic shaft shown with the seal kit is NOT the plastic motor shaft, that is a protective shipping sleeve to keep the two seal halves together in shipping and storage. The white plastic piece is removed before trying to install the seals.

OK, found the motor on sears partdirect for $100. Just low enough to be worth considering. Still high enough to suck. Still seems silly to throw out a perfectly good motor because I need the plastic bit that sits on it.

Anyone got an opinion on whether the thing is worth fixing?

Assuming $100? Worth fixing? The thing was built in 2004.

Did some more looking after posting yesterday morning and found Sears Parts Direct still stocks the original complete motor/pump assembly part# 154582601 for only $126.59 and the complete motor/pump assembly includes much more then I posted above, (it includes everything from ref#17-impeller screw down to ref#18-motor, just have to swap the spray tower diffuser).

Anytime you order from Sears Parts Direct use the discount code "PARTS" on the first page of check out where it says enter discount code right under your shopping cart line items, (click the enter discount code and enter the word PARTS in the box and click 'Apply' for a 10% discount - would save you $12.66 almost the amount of shipping).
