Please help me, anyone..
I have an old dish washer.
It's an VULCAN DISHLEX and now it is leaking.
I have looked under and determined that it is the small pump that drains the water that is leaking.
I removed the pump and discovered that water is dripping out from between the axle and the rubber seal. I also noticed some grease on the axle.
My guess is that it is supposed to be some kind of grease between the axle and the seal to prevent water from coming out there.
Is this correct and what kind of grease is it?

Thankful for reply

Ah, an optimistic guess.  No, once the pump starts leaking, it must be replaced.

damn...
But those pumps are similar for almost all appliances, right? Diswashers or washing machines I mean.
Anywhere i can get one for a reasonable price?

Thanks

Nyet, tovarish. 

Pumps are designed for a very specific configurations and model numbers.  Gotta bite the bullet on this one and git you a new pump.  Rawhide!
