I have a WP DW, model DU840SWLU0, it was leaking from the pump motor shaft so I got a new Drain impeller and shaft seal kit which was easy to install, however from the pump side, you need to install the disk and mount assembly...how tight do you install this. The tighter you turn this assembly, the more the drain impeller seal pushed on the motor shaft, i am unsure how tight to do this...pls help, Thanks

Hi,

I'm not sure on this model, I have only replaced the complete pump/motor assembly on just the one i had last year.

You can message jeff1, he might have done more of these and could tell you exactly.
