Have a model 462ss thats...
Have a model 462ss thats about 5 years old, sat empty in a building for a year, recently filled it up and works fine, but I'm seeing black plastic pieces in the bottom, when I pick them up, they just crumble, I'm assuming something is coming apart in the system?

O​k thought so.... If you are getting pieces of black something, most likely it is a rubber seal of some type, possibly from the filters? But maybe something else internal. The first thing it to be looking for leaks. If no leaks then anything that has black coatings, or fittings. If you can maybe try to determine what the material is made of to help narrow down the search.

Its hard plastic chunks, about the size of a pencil led, no leaks, I'm assuming its from the jets, probably the impellers?
Appliance Technician: David Bowden, General Contractor replied 8 months ago

Plastic is not rubber so it doesn't sound like seals. Could be pieces of the jets, etc. Think you will need to keep an eye on it and see what happens.

I was also thinking the plastic pieces may be from the factory not trimming/cleaning the pipes/tubing ends after cutting them? Maybe upload a couple photos so I can see what you are finding.
