Locking Ring on Maytag Dishwasher (dwu8250bax)
« on: February 06, 2012, 06:06:52 PM »
I was having some issues with my dishwasher, and did a pretty extensive cleaning and examination (I don't think this thing has ever been serviced or cleaned). Along the way, I pulled the pump/motor assembly and checked the seal, which was pretty worn. I have a new seal and installed it, but I can't seem to get the locking ring to lock the motor down enough to compress the seal. Is there a trick to getting the motor in tight enough?

Model dwu8250bax

I haven't had the ring out, but I'll check in case it shifted when I pulled the motor. How far should the lock ring rotate when I'm locking it?
