Question: DEWALT IMPACT DWO56
Tool run fine in forward and reverse at no load but does not engage impact portion what part need to replace.
Reply: DEWALT IMPACT DWO56
If what your saying is the anvil spins when there is no load on it but doesn't move at all when you have a load on it then generally speaking that indicates a loose pinion gear on the motor.The pinion gear is pressed on to the shaft of the motor and they will some times slip. If that's the case the motor and pinion will have to be replaced.Hope that helps.Good luck.
DEWALT IMPACT DWO56 WHATS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE 38.00 $ SWITCH AND THE 64.00 $ SWITCH ? ARE THEY INTERCHANGEABLE ?
It looks like the difference between the two switches is the forward/reverse lever. On the part number 152274-23 the lever is included, hopefully this is what yours looks like. On the part number 152274-15. The lever is not included. It is part number, 607100-00. And the switches are not interchangeable.
Hope this helps,
Question: Dewalt DW056 Impact Driver
The driver will spin in forward position but won't turn the screw in. Reverse seems fine. Do I replace the motor or what? Thanks, Chip

Sine the motor seems to be working ok I would first check the 152274-23 switch to make sure it is working properly. They are usually the most common part to go out on a cordless drill. If you don't have the the means to check it take it to a local Dewalt Factory service center, they should be able to help you.
Hope this helps,
Question: Chuck Retaining Ring For DeWalt ...
How is the retaining ring removed to repair the chuck?
Reply: Chuck Retaining Ring For DeWalt ...
Hi garyburk,With a small knife or I use an exacto knife find the open end of the retaining ring and gently pry the ring out and up over the detent. Some tools used a round retainer ring and some used a snap ring. Hope this helps.Good luck.
Question: Bit Extraction
I put a standard (short) screwdriver bit into my Dewalt 18V impact driver. The bit has a small detent groove, but obviously not the large groove needed. When I used it I drove the bit back into the sleeve and it is jammed in. How do I remove it (and have I done damage)?
iordered a forward/reverse lever for dw056 type 1 the lever shipped is different from broken one. orginal had slot built in for post from trigger assembly. new has just posts
The dw056 had a change in the switch.You need part # 634728-00 Forward/Reverse Button ( This Fits the Marquette Switch) .Look at the picture to make sure I'm right. Hope this helps.Good luck.
thanks for your help, thought i would have to trash tool.

If the variable speed is gone in your drill you will need to replace the switch, part number 152274-15.
Reply: DW 056-brushes
Hi Sam. Unfortunately the brushes aren't replaceable on the Dewalt DW056. You could probably pry them out of the motor housing, but since there aren't any OEM brushes available, it wouldn't be helpful. In this case I would recommend replacing the entire motor, I'm sorry to say. It's available for around $50 and it's part #607990-03. You can purchase one here:
Reply: Motor And Pinion
I have the same problem with the pinion spinning freely on the motor shaft,
Does anyone have a fix for that problem ?
I thought about drilling the side of the pinion, tapping and fitting it with a set srew, sounds good dont it, I have'nt tried it, it's probably a hardened steel pinion which would make this task a lot more difficult, any ideas are welcome.
Sounds to me like your switch is going bad. I'm guessing the problem will get worse until the switch becomes completely intermittent, then dead. It's an easy fix though, since all you have to do is replace the switch. For the Dewalt DW056 there are two switches available, part #152274-15 which does not come with the fwd/rev slider, and part #152274-23 which does come with the fwd/rev slider. Interestingly, the switch that comes with the slider is WAY cheaper so I'd go with that one.
Question: Brushes For Dw056
Shane mc grath
I live in Ireland and have a American dw056. Brushes are completely worn down but can't find anywhere I can buy brushes without buying motor as well,the European parts won't fit American drill so can't buy them in Ireland please help as I'm lost without my impact driver
Reply: Brushes For Dw056
I got the brush assembly out from the motor. The problem is they do not sell the brush for this model. We have to replace the motor or we may order similar brush and modify a little.
My impact driver was working fine and now when I press the lever to turn it on, it does nothing? The battery is fine. If I manually help spin the adapter, it starts to move but with no power? I thought maybe it might need new brushes, but I don't see any listed in the parts list? Could it be the motor or something? HELP anyone!
Mine did the same thing. The motor ran and the bit would turn with a little help getting it turning. There was a broken armature wire in the motor.
I'm rebuilding several for my boss. I've found that what you saying is what I found to be a bad trigger. They are easy to replace. Hope this helps.
I was working on one of mine and I hooked the battery, pulled the trigger and it ran slowly. I pushed on one of the brushes and the motor took of, full speed. See if this works; if it does it means the brushes are worn out.
Question: IMPACT DRIVER
I have a philips bit jammed in the anvil tip. How do I remove it?
Reply: IMPACT DRIVER
tap the end of the bit and you can remove it. Mine has been stuck several times
Question: DW056 - Snapped Impact Driver Ad...
How to remove stub?
Using my DeWalt 1/4" Impact Driver, the impact driver adapter was shorn off at the face of the chuck. Tried to drill it out, but of course, it is hardened steel. Tried to remove the nose and push it out from behind - oy!, that's a lot of bearing grease on the planetary gears. Any ideas? Thanks!
Reply: DW056 - Snapped Impact Driver Ad...
You will need to replace the entire anvil piece..#10 part #605855-00 once you remove the retaining ring # 15..you should be able to push the piece out thru the nose..be sure and not lose any loose parts..:) parts avail at ereplacementparts.com
hope this helps?
Question: Reverse Switch
I have ordered a reverse switch this will be the 3rd time for my Dewalt impact driver DW056. This is the # they suggested this time 63472800 I did receive one that looked like mine only it is what I would call a male arm, when the original one is a female arm. Would this part be the right part? Let me know if you need more information.
Thank you Marianne
Review: DeWALT - DW056 They Make My Live...
I have had two DW056 for 5 years now. I have already replaced the trigger twice on both and now I am ordering the motor and pinion for both because the bushings are gone. They have fastened thousands of screws and bolts every week since I bough them. Well worth the money in my opinion.
Review: DeWALT - DW056 Strong, Torquey L...
When working with nuts, bolts, and screws it can be really, really annoying to turn all those fasteners by hand. I've used ratchets and screwdrivers for years but since I've discovered impact drivers everything is much easier. Faster too.
This Dewalt DW056 impact driver is a big 18 volt model which has strong torque and forceful impacting. For removing and installing lug nuts on a four wheeler this thing is excellent. It tightens the bolts very securely. I've never had a single problem with a lug nut installed with this impact driver. Driving regular wood screws is wonderful too. It just hammers away until the fastener is tight. In most cases, I need no more wrenches or ratchets.
It's not perfect however. As with any 18 volt Ni-Cd Dewalt tool it's very heavy and can be inconvenient when used for a long period of time. Also it's too powerful for some jobs, especially when installing a self-tapping screw into soft material like plastic. It's important to be careful. Also it's not a torque wrench, so make sure you don't overtighten fasteners that require a certain torque setting.
Despite some shortcomings this is a really great tool that makes most mechanical jobs a whole lot easier. Once you've got a complete set of attachments for your impact driver, you may not have to turn a bolt by hand again.
Review: DeWALT - DW056
I have owned this tool for 1 year now, a must have impact drill, I finally dropped it and broke the clamshell, So Im on here ordering a new one, well worth the money
Reply: DeWALT - DW056
I'm here for the same reason. Difference is I have six. LOL These are great drivers, you just can't be dropping them from 20 to 30 feet in the air.
