i was taking my 6055 apart to clean today and i noticed the shaft had considerable side to side play...i suspect the washers are worn out or the motor block is worn out...any advice?

Hello Ryan, do you notice any odd shape on the motor block or propeller? The propeller should fit a little bit loose IMO

no no odd shapes, but when i hooked it all back up, it chattered pretty bad...i notice that when the propeller turns on, it jerks the whole assembly down and to the left, and when it turns off, everything is centered again.

Can you send us the pump? The shaft should not move or come out, it is possible to pull it out if it is forced, for example if the drive unit is cemented to the shaft by lime and it is pulled out but it must be fixed firmly for the pump to work properly.
