So unfortunately at this point you'll need to chisel off the round black impeller so that all you see is the center motor shaft and the screw. Then you can grab the center shaft with vice grips and use a socket wrench on the screw. Unfortunately this somewhat commonly occurs since the screw gets so seized up over time due to hard water so I've probably had to do this half a dozen times myself.

I am a different tech and have rebuilt many of these, often that bolt can get really stuck and may even shear off, if it does that you will be buying a new motor assembly. Before trying to chisel the impeller off which will only destroy more and you can damage the housing if you slip and still typically will not get you the result you need, you should get a large channel locks and grab the impeller with it and then use a socket and ratchet and you should be able to get the bolt free, if it shears off that sometimes happens and then you basically would either have to drill and tap it tor get a new pump as that screw sets the seal and impeller as well.
