Whirlpool Dishwasher Problems – Replace the Accumulator Filter

Today we’re going to show you how to change the filter flow plate assembly on your Whirlpool dishwasher. It’s a really easy job; all you’re going to need is #20 torques bit, and a pair of slip joint pliers. Let me show you how we do it.

Now to do this repair, we’ll begin by opening the dishwasher door, and we’ll remove the lower rack and any dishes that may be in it; we’ll set that aside. Next with our pliers, we’ll remove the retaining nut for the lower spray arm; loosen that lower spray arm nut with a pair of pliers then turn it off by hand. Remove the spray arm. With our #20 torques bit, remove the three screws that hold that filter flow plate in place. Now lift up on the front of that plate and disengage it enough that you can gain access to the six screws around the pump cover; we need to remove those as well.

Now lift up on that pump cover to disengage it from the housing at the back; once you’ve lifted it up just pull forward on it. If need be you can lift up on that filter plate so you can get your fingers underneath that pump cover to disengage it, and lift it out.

Next we’ll remove the impeller with a #15 torques bit; grasp the impeller with your other hand to loosen the screw, then pull the impeller straight up. Next we’ll remove the two screws on either side of the center housing. Now we should be able to remove the pump cover and the filter flow plate all at the same time. Just lift up gently and pull forward to disengage that manifold at the back, and then we can pull the assembly out of there.

Now we’ll take the new filter flow plate and insert the cover on it first. Then very carefully slide it in under that manifold; we don’t want to damage the tabs that hold the manifold to the back wall. Lift up enough on it, slide the plate over the back of the pump, line up the overflow tube portion of that, push it in all the way, make sure it seats nice and flat in there.

Now we’ll reinstall the two screws that secure the filter plate to the pump. Next reinstall the impeller. Install the #15 torques head screw; and again we’ll have to hold the impeller in place. Make sure it turns freely.

Next we’ll install the pump discharge cover; we need to make sure that that hook goes in underneath the manifold. So lift up gently on the back of that manifold, make sure the cover seats and we’ll reinstall the screws that hold that into place. There’s six #20 torques screws. And then the remaining three longer screws for the cover. We can now put the bottom spray arm back on; just finger tighten that nut first, and then just snug it up with a pair of pliers.

We’re ready to put the lower dish rack in place, and our work on this Whirlpool dishwasher repair is complete.
