Yes I can see the impeler.

where is the screw your trying to reach? under the impeller? the screw you lost.

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

I believe it is down under the white grid cover which surrounds the impeller.

However, I am also trying to clean the area of any other debris.

What size wrench and tool to get off the nut?

to be honest I'm not sure, I usually use a crescent wrench. these are a pain because they get brittle after a few years and break easy.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

I will have to locate a cresent wrench to twist the impeller and a socket devise to hold the nut. It may be tomorrow before I am able to complete the project and rate the reply.

okay. well I know for sure to get that screen out you need to remove the impeller because there are 4 screws under it and then it lifts can see the holesgraphic the impeller is right in the middle where the big glob of red is and extends out over the screws. let me know how you do, theres no other way to get that screen out.

Thank you. the diagrams and video look very helpful...I just have to locate the right size socket and crescent wrench to proceed. I will rate when I have tried those. I found out why my credit card didn't go through...they were checking to be sure that I had authorized the charge from JustAnswer. When I responded to them, they authorized the charge and I was able to view your response. I hope that the $38 is the only charge. I don't want to be stuck paying $38 a month. I originally thought the service would be free..the advertising is deceptive. However, your information seems to be spot on and certainly worth a one time charge of $38 if I confirm every works as you suggest and I don't receive any other charges.

okay let me know if you have any trouble, thanks and best wishes, Bryan
