Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Loud grinding noise that should go way after one complete cycle. After 3 cycles it just gets louder and louder.

\015 A Whirlpool under-the-counter dishasher (just a little over the one year warrantee as luck would have it) is making a loud grinding noise but is still going through all of the cycles OK. The User Instructions say that it could be a hard object that has entered the wash module and that the sound should go away after a complete cycle. After three cycles it only got louder and louder. Any advice?\015\012\015\012Ed from Pittsburgh\015

Remove the lower spray assembly and clean out the sump area.

I have a MDBH945AWW that is just over one year old. It has just started making a various new noises. Grinding, loud buzzing and such. Still cleaned the dishes and completed the full cycle. I followed the solution that bgreenatown gave for removing obstacles. Found some soft material but did not seem that it would cause an obstruction. Removed it and put it back together but it is still making noises. Any next steps?

The dishwasher does not complete a cycle. It starts the cycle just fine but then it stops after one minute. It seems like it gets stuck and won't move to the next step. I do hear a slight clicking noise similar to a clock ticking, like its trying to move on, but then it stops. It clicks three times. When I open the door the "fine china" light is on even though I set it on "normal". Is there a "re-set" button?

When starting wash cycle the dishwasher cda cw447 doesnt appear to be getting enough water in and is making a droning / whirring / electrical ? noise. pipes all connected ok inc aquastop water supply unit, no kinks etc. machine 3 1/2 yrs old, just started making this noise. appears to complete rapid cycle but still making unusual sound. water drains away fine from this cycle, dont believe pipes / hoses are blocked.


Try removing the inlet pipe, and refitting, might fix it, else likely that the \015\012Inlet water soleniod failing/failed or tiny mesh filter (it does come out for cleaning) behind the inlet hose clogged. Temporaily bypass the aquastop water s ... Dishwashers

No matter which cycle selection in pushed, the dishwasher only starts up in the "normal" 93 min cycle. If I try other cycle options, and persist, I get an ER message and the cycle stops prior to the soap powder door opening and never completes the cycle. Only with turning off power for several minutes and receiving the PF message, and resetting ONE TIME that message can I then select any cycle, at which time the machine "defaults" to the "normal" full cycle. If I do not disturb that cycle, it wi

Blowing fuse... We've replaced the overheating fuse located in the control board area about 5 times. It has just blown again after using the dishwaser one time--before it would go about a month before blowing the fuse. It seems to get about a few minutes away from completing the wash cycle and does not complete the draining process. Help!! We don't know what to do next--replacing the fuse is costing about $15 each time, before you know it we could have bought a new one! Thanks for the help. Ti


Tim, this blown fuse issue was pretty common on this model. Whirlpool, which made this model came out with a fuse kit that included a terminal and heavier guage wire to eliminate this problem. It just splices right into the control board, easy job. T ... Kenmore 17024 Built-in Dishwasher

One of my drawers is not draining completely all of a sudden... Recently, the unit started making a grinding sound during one of its cycles. Now, it doesn't drain completely. I took out the filter plate with motor assembly and found that the underside was a bit chewed up. Not sure if this could cause the draining problem. Any thoughts?


That sounds like it could very will be the problem, also check to make sure drain hose is not clogged by blowing down it. should be able to blow free and clear. ... Fisher and Paykel 23 in. DD-603SS Built-in Dishwasher

Kitchenaid Dishwasher model # KUDS25SHBS1 has started making noise. Noise happens when unit is draining so perhaps its the same mechanism that houses the grinder. Can definetly hear a clicking as something spins around to drain the unit. I have removed the washing armature and plastic skirt around bottom and felt underneath the skirted area, but don't feel anything caught or jammed. Noise is getting louder as more draining cycles are being utilized (i.e. as we use the machine more). Anyone have

I have an LG 1415M dishwasher and it is making an extremely loud noise. It's that loud when it gets to a certain part of the cycle that it is deafening. It starts to fill with water and then I presume when it starts to wash it makes this grinding loud noise. We have cleaned the filters as recommended in manual.

The green light flashes consistently after stopping. I have noticed during the cycle that-: The rinse/wash/dry/end lights flicker, occasionally the wash cycle will run for 2 hrs before completing or malfunctioning, will sometimes make a unusual noise (growning)and then malfunction, and will try and click the soap dispenser door a number of times and then malfunction. All the above symptoms will happen intermittently and have been progressively getting worse and are now at a point where the dish

After 3 years it just started making a loud noise, I am no expert but it sounds like a fan in a motor. I have only heard it today, but I am betting it will still happen next load too. I didn't change any of the settings, have been running the same way forever. When I did hear this noise I started pushing buttons to see if I could get it to stop, no good, no change. The cycle has completed and everything looks ok, waiting on the dishes to dry. Drainage has never been a problem for me either.


I would say this is a build up of lime.try changing your tablets and checking your salt levels.there is no fan .try what i say and see what happens.have you found a glass broken it could be as simple as that but i dont think its serious.adrian,,,, ... GE Nautilus 24" Built-in Dishwasher

I have a 2 year old Electrolux ESL 63010 dishwasher, and it worked perfect until a few days ago, when it did not wash cleanly and the dishes came out cold. I read a few forums and it seemed to indicate the heating element. So I ordered one a fitted it, but still the water is not getting hot, or drying the dishes after the complete cycle. I have done a visual check of the PCB board, which looks clean and good. No error sounds, and it completes all programs, but with cold water and no drying. W

I have a GE Triton XL dishwasher that all of the sudden stopped cleaning well. I now find food residue on the dishes, and the detergent cup does not empty completely. I use the gel detergent, and I just see the gel dripping down the door after the cycle is complete. This machine is about 5 years old, and I'm looking to see if it can be easily fix. I rather not have to call someone to tell me that I have to get a new one, or pay more to fix it that what it is worth. Thanks
