When my Maytag quit pumping and I took the pump off, I found this piece in the impeller. I can’t find where it would have come from, screens are intact, and it doesn’t show up on any diagrams. Is it even from a dishwasher? Put the pump back on and it works fine - no leaks.

Added complete model number

I purchased a new MDB8959SKB0 for my 82 year old Mom. I wanted something that would last for her. Two years later I am pulling it out to fix it.

This is a terrible design that Maytag should notify their customers and fix for free. The sad part is I purchased the MDB8959SKB0 for myself a year later and now I have this to look forward to.
