Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Dishwasher appears to be having problems draining - loud screatching noise and sound like metal clanking


Answers :

Either a piece of tableware has penetrated the intake screen at the bottom under the lower spray arm, and the pump impeller is damaged, or the pump motor underneath the deck has a bad bearing and must be replaced. Remove all components including the lower spray arm down to the bottom deck. Note the position and orientation of each piece as it is removed. When you get to the bottom, there should be a pump impeller that is connected to the motor underneath the deck. Turn the impeller by hand and see if it is noisy, or moves side to side indicating a bad motor bearing.

My Maytag Quiet Series 200 is making loud noises. It appears to be continuing the cycle. When we stop and start the washer, it sounds like the motor is working hard (high pitched sound). It sounds serious. I'd like to troubleshoot myself if possible. Also, what is the criteria for an 8 year old washer when it comes to the decision of fix vs buy new?

I have a Smeg dishwasher SA660 EB. Still like new . Hardley used but have problems with the timer switch not progressing past 5 and also had the thermostat replaced as a loud bang heard and the machine did not work.

Dishwasher is making a metalic rattling/clanking noise when first starting and periodically through the wash cycle. Sounds like the noise is in the door, but hard to tell. No error lights have come on. The dishes appear clean, but the noise is getting worse.

I have a Maytag MDBH945AWS dishwasher that makes loud noises when running through the wash cycle. When first purchased the DW was whisper quiet. At about 6 months it was noticeably louder. Then just recently it alternates between clicking (sounds like the soft food disposer), loud vibrating hum, and the medium loud hum that has been steadily increasing. I've disassembled it down to the motor and haven't found the problem. No obvious abrasion from parts interference. Nothing in the pump ass

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

Loud grinding noise sounds like something small and hard is getting caught in some kind of rotary. The sound comes from underneath the dishwasher at or near the motor. I screwed the big circular plastic filter on the bottom of the inside of the dishwasher, but found no significant debrie. It did not resolve the problem.

Had my Maytag dishwasher for just over 2 years. Lately is has been making a loud grinding/vibrating noise - like something is stuck. I actually pulled out a piece of a plastic twist tie or something and thought I had solved the problem. Worked like a charm for a couple of days and suddenly the sound is back - and worse! I've read here that you should remove the bottom piece and make sure nothing is stuck before calling service. I'm the woman that's going to do this and could use some guidance ..

I have a Bosch SHU43C05UC diswasher. Last night, I put it on before going to bed as usual. I was awakened a couple of hours later to a loud grinding sound (like a pump being run dry), and found the noise coming from the dishwasher. The display read "0" time remaining, so I opened the door and the dishes seemed clean, so I left it shut off. Tonight I have been trying to troubleshoot the problem. The dishwasher will turn on, but it will not seem to fill with water. I have verified that the

Dishwasher sounds like it is running normally, (no grinding sounds or anything)but there doesn't appear to be any water coming into the machine. we checked to see if there was a kink in the line or if perhaps it was a plumbing problem but that does not seem to be the case. I know the circular disk in the front of the machine needs to be down and it is, so can you figure out without seeing for yourself what could be the problem and if so is it worth fixing since I can probably replace it for und

I have a Bosch SHU43C06UC/14. A few weeks ago it was making a loud terrible noise during the entire cycle. We figured it was on its last leg but it was still cleaning the dishes properly. Then with no explaination the noise stopped and the machine sounded normal again. Today when I started the machine it makes the normal sound when starting but it acts like it is stuck at the beginning and does not fill with water. The timer also does not count down.

Kenmore dishwasher has loud noise during fill. If you let it go, the washer fills. Once filled, noise stops and wash cycle continues. Sounds like plumbing does when there is air in the pipes. Not a grinding sound. Very deep pitch. Stops when the washer fills with water.


This isn't a solution but rather a comment, if the problem is happening only during the fill, then it could be the water inlet valve. Perhaps there is a soliniod going in the valve, watch to see if the fill cycle starts to dimminish over time. Does t ... Kenmore Dishwashers

The water is pumped out after the rinse cycle then it continues to run and make an unusual noise but nothing happens. The noise is almost a grinding sound. There is also a smell like some part may be hot or the wiring may be hot. I can reset the dishwasher and re-run the cycle up until that same point and it does the same thing again. I have had a repairman out twice in the last six months. The first time he could find nothing wrong because the problem was intermittent and he couldn't see anythi

When we open the dishwasher door, it produces a very loud metalicsqueeking sound- like something is rubbing or binding. The door is not catching on anything externally, and there doesn't seem to be resistance to opening or closing. I have lubricated all the external parts- pully, cable, etc, with silicon spray, but the sound continues. It is difficult to pinpoint the exact location- obviously at the bottom of door. What must I do to correct the squeeky noise? Thanks for your help!
