Whirlpool Gold WDF730PAYM Leak
« on: October 29, 2014, 03:44:44 PM »
Hi,

The noticed last night that my dishwasher is leaking for several days. I removed the front flap and look like the water is comin out of a white tube like thing right at the center. I was able to take a picture. I bought this brand new and used it only for 18 months now. It messed up all my wooden floor. When I spoke with a technician over phone he advised to get a new one since it would cost at least $300 to fix it. Is this a common problem with this dishwasher? Anything I can try before I throw this out?

Thanks,
Ramesh

Try posting several more pics...farther away (to help locate where you are looking), and close, but different angles and lighting.

That is the diverter motor. I've seen this before. You need a new diverter motor and sump assembly...

I never did one of these Low.Would it be better just to install whole motor and pump assembly?Cost a little more.Don,t you have to worry about those crazy clamps coming off sump.Just what to know.

I think that maybe the other motor and pump has that problem?

I didn't know it was available as an assembly.  Nice!

Take out the sump assembly and remove the diverter motor. Pop out the seal in the sump and take it to a bearing shop. They should have the seal for like 2 bucks. I have 6 of them in my tool bag. I just looked it is a 10-18-4 double lip seal.
