Sump - Part # 1455333 Mfg Part # W10168822


RepairClinic Item # 1455333

If the dishwasher has a leak in the motor area, the sump seal might be defective. Most dishwasher pumps have a large bowl, or sump, which collects the water that goes into the pump. The sump mounts into the bottom of the dishwasher and there is a rubber seal around the perimeter of the sump which provides the seal to the dishwasher main tub. If that sump seal has worn out a leak can occur. Some dishwashers have a lock ring that holds the sump tight to the bottom of the tub. If the lock ring is cracked or damaged it will need to be replaced.
