Hi,Welcome to Just Answer, My name is XXXXX XXXXX forward to helping you today.

 

do you think you can remove the wash plate ? heres a diagram. part # XXXXX

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

I probably can.

Expert:  Bryan replied 2 years ago.
okay usually its a worn hub or wash plate itself, let me know when you get to it.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Bryan,

 

Sorry to say I don't have the tools, the self-assurance, nor the expertise to go as far as your diagrams show. Could you please tell me approximately what it would cost to have an expert come in and repair either the worn hub or the replace the wash plate.

 

Thank you

Expert:  Bryan replied 2 years ago.
Well the wash plate runs around $45, the pump pieces are cheap depending on which one, some of the pump parts are only like $10 or less, but I'm not sure what's worn on yours, it could be that is just something under the hub itself or the wash plate, you may have something under there thats making it knock, the usual service call is around $79 plus labor so even if the wash plate was worn and needed to be replaced job should be under $150, sorry you weren't able to take this apart, have a great weekend, thanks, Bryan
