appliance doctor :

Hi I,m John I will help you with replacing the impeller .I will look at the model number breakdown and get back to you in a few minutes with the help .

Customer: Ok.
appliance doctor :

have you removed the spray arm and the top housing ?

Customer: Yes, we are down to the chopper.
appliance doctor :

Heres the wash impeller and a video on how to replace the impeller,If you require more help let me know please .

Customer: It is full of plastic and gunk so we are cleaning that out
appliance doctor :

Make sure you clean out number 7 in the breakdown thats whre you will find more.

Customer: I looked at the video but our dishwashers impeller is not the same as the one on that video.
appliance doctor :

Why dont you wait till we fix the problem before you give a bad service .

appliance doctor :

is this not your model ?

Customer: Ok, sorry. It was just stuck there and I couldn't,t get more info so I was pushing buttons to get something to happen. It was the only one that worked?? IT issue Imguess.
Customer: Yes my model is MDB7609AWB1.
appliance doctor :

If its just clogged up you dont require an impeller, just clean out the gunk especially in the number 7 in the breakdown .

Customer: MDB7609AWB1
Customer: Sorry what is number 7?
appliance doctor :

Its called the accumulator filter and it gets gunk in the filter , you can remove it and wash it out under the kitchen tap .

Customer: Ok. We are trying that.
appliance doctor :

It should fix the problem for you.

Customer: Ok. We are going to put it back together and see if that works. I will stay logged in. Again sorry about he poor service thing. I will rate properly when we are done.
appliance doctor :

A rating of three or more will credit me for helping with the d/w problem .

appliance doctor :

You should pour a cup full of CLR and let it go through a cycle this will really clean it out .

Customer: Will do.
appliance doctor :

great , let me know how you make out .

appliance doctor :

have you had a chance to go through a cycle to see if it works better now that you cleaned it out ?

Customer: It worked!
