I have a ge triton xl dishwasher. it appears to be leaking

Resolved Question:

I have a ge triton xl dishwasher. it appears to be leaking just where the main wash pump assembly goes up into the dishwasher itself. I can see a bit of the black sel protruding from the side of the opening and that appears to be where the water is coming from. How do I replace that main seal?

I would say that it is leaking around the round hole in #502. Is there a seal around that hole? It does not look like it from the picture.

Expert:  Appliance Tech Larry replied 3 years ago.
then you will have to replace #505, part number WD18X10008 which cost about $20 but you will have to pull the unit from under the counter and remove the motor, pump and all the hoses, it is a quit a job and may be the best to get a service tech out to do it for you
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
I have the dishwasher out and I can handle most repair jobs, but in the picture I don't see any part #505. Am I missing something?
Expert:  Appliance Tech Larry replied 3 years ago.
its the large rubber piece that the hoses and all connects to, it can clamps to remove it ,, you may try some sealer on the part and see if it doesnt stop the leak

No. I don't think that it is leaking around the drain. The water is coming out from around where 455 goes up from the washer pump. It is NOT leaking where 455 connects , but from the side next to where 455 connects. Is there a seal in that area?

 

Expert:  Appliance Tech Larry replied 3 years ago.
that is the pump connector, remove the motor, disconnect the connector and take down, use some 3M glue and put it back in place and let set up for a couple hours and put all back together

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
I have the pump off, but how does the pump connector come off? I am guessing that it just turns, but it seems quite tightly in there.
Expert:  Appliance Tech Larry replied 3 years ago.
it does just turn but the sealer may have it tight, you may have to get a new one but its only about $13 and the part number is XXXXX if you need it
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
#455 may actually be the problem. One side of the part is discolored almost like it is rusted. Does that sound normal?
Expert:  Appliance Tech Larry replied 3 years ago.
yes ,, it has a spit in it ,, just buy a new one and install it, sealing it will not work ... you can get it at a local appliance parts dealer near you
