Hi Bryan,

The model # XXXXX XXXXX(NNN) NNN-NNNNor(NNN) NNN-NNNN The manual that came with it is for both models. I'm thinking it is the water pump bearing since I only hear the load sreaching sound when it is gtrying to pump water.

Thanks,
Dave

ok heres a complete breakdown of the entire pump and motor assembly, I am assuming the high pitch noise starts when the motor starts after fill correct? you most likely have something down in the impeller assembly in the pump. you need to remove the spray arm and get down into the pump area, this can be a job to do so if your not sure you may want to call a tech in to look at it. hope this helps, thanks Bryan

Hi Bryan,

It looks like I will need a few parts if I attempt this.
Looks like I will need a new pump gasket and a pump centering tool or pump re-assembly. Do I need these? If so, where can I order these from?
I am a long time printer tech so am used to taking mechanical things apart and putting them back together correctly again.

Thanks,
Dave
