Tech Tip: W/P Tahoe Dishwasher Leaking Diverter Seal
« on: March 28, 2013, 12:05:36 AM »
2012 – KITCHEN AID, 665 KENMORE AND WHIRLPOOL “TAHOE” – GLOBAL WASH SYSTEM DISHWASHERS

MODELS: ALL 2012 MODELS

ISSUE: SUMP LEAKING DUE TO A BAD DIVERTER SEAL

SERIAL # RANGE: Serial #’s beginning with F2****

EXPLANATION: We want to send out a shipping label to get the SUMP AND DIVERTER MOTOR returned that has this issue of a LEAKING DIVERTER MOTOR SEAL on any of the 2012 Global Wash Dishwashers so we can get a quick quality analysis of the part.

NOTE: DO NOT order the complete Pump/Motor Assembly (Only order the Sump which includes the Diverter Seal and order the diverter motor).

IDENIFICATION: At this time there are visual differences in the parts list that allow you to identify the “2011 Tahoe Global Wash System”.

1. The Fine Mesh Filter key # 3 on the 2011 “2011 Tahoe Global Wash System” is shaped differently.

2. The Sleeve Cover key # 1 is no longer used on the “2011 Tahoe Global Wash System”. 2012 “TAHOE” GLOBAL WASH SYSTEM 2010-2011 “TAHOE” ATLANTIC 2008 – 2010 ORIGINAL TAHOE

Yes. If it's leaking thru the center of the diverter motor, you have to replace the sump and diverter. The diverter seal is part of the sump and not a separate part number.

Well that fixed it. A $2.00 seal. Took 5 minutes to change.  10-18-4 double lip seal. You should be able to get it from any bearing supplier.
