Hello, my name is ***** ***** iam happy to help you with your question today..that is the turbidity sensor with the two prongs sticking up ,it senses the dirt in the water ,was it acting up or were just cleaning out the system ?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Thank you, ***** ***** one question. It was acting up by making a strange noise during wash cycle. Wonder where to look for water coming up to turn the arms. I don't see the water so I think that is where it is plugged?
Expert:  Randy 43 replied 2 years ago.
if you had weird noise most likely something hard got stuck in that impeller housing and was hitting on the blade , if the blade has a scoured up look ?it was hitting on something? that is what normally happens ,cleaning it all up and reassembling it all usually fixes it ..
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Do you need a special tool to remove the blade?
Expert:  Randy 43 replied 2 years ago.
blade just lifts off the motor shaft ,if you have it open ?there are just torx screws holding everything down
