Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Whirlpool Gold Model GU1500XTLS2 Dishwasher. VERY loud whirring sound when on. Everything seems to be working fine, except the noise. 5 years old. very quiet when new.

I recently replaced a motor on a Kitchen Aid dishwasher for JUST such a problem. Dishwasher must be pulled out of cabinet and lying down for this repair. Nothing inside the dishwasher interior needs to be removed for wash motor replacement. When you have the motor out of the dishwasher turning the impeller by hand will yield a "rough" feel as compared to a new one. The one I replaced clearly had the feel of a bad bearing. Be sure to lubricate the rubber seal on the new motor, as the note covers, as it will make full insertion in the housing much easier.

The Service Manual is located at the link below with motor disassembly beginning on page 21 Steps 1-3 and the note only need be done. The full assembly you remove in these steps is all replaced by a new wash motor assembly 8534942.

There is a piece of glass or plastic in the pump. This is a common problem. Remove the lower basket and look into the machine. You will see the top of the pump. Locate the screw to remove the water spray arm. In the top of the pump there are 3 screws. Remove them and pull the top off this should allow access to the chopper where the Bits are ratteling.

GLD6200 NOISY We have above unit approx. 2 years. It just started having a "rumbling noise" when running (all cycles}. The floor even vibrates mildly. It works fine just annoying - it used to be very quiet. Everything I know how to check seems fine. Do I need a repairman ?

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 GE Quiet Power 3 that has completly died. I cannot get a light to come on or anything to beep when pressing buttons. I checked the circuit breaker and outlet and they are both working fine. I tried pressing and holding the reset button on the front control panel and nothing. It seems to have just died at 2 years old. Anyone have a solution? GE wants $80 just to look at it.

I have an 8 year-old Kenmore 665.16912 dishwasher. Worked fine until two days ago. Then it stopped working altogether: nothing lights up on the front panel. I have checked the 120 in the electrical box, the door switch is working, the thermal fuse is working and there is 120 volts at the white and black connections to the timer control board. I bought a new timer control board for $120 and that did not fix the problem. What else could be causing the unit to completely stop working?

I have a GE Quiet Power 3 dishwasher that was working fine last week. Over the weekend I ran it and we could hear a banging noise, so my boyfriend opened it three or four times in a row (during the cycle) to figure out what it was. The fourth time, it went dead. I checked and it had tripped the breaker. I reset the breaker and the dishwasher seemed to be working again, however the lights on the front were flashing (they hadn't previously), and now it will run for about 10 minutes but no water ru

We have a Quiet series 200 Maytag Legacy Series about 2 years old. Some of the buttons on the push pad button panel won't work including the start button. Some will work and some some the lights are green so I know there is power. It seems maybe some of the buttons are broken down so as not to engage.

No water The serial number is not my dishwahser, however mine is about 6+ years old and has worked fine, I keep it in fairly good order, cleaning rotar arms weekly and filters as often as needed.

Dishwasher is just less than 1 year old. it doesn't respond to attempts to turn on. I turned off the power at the box and back on after 10 minutes. it worked. then the same problem returned. now it wont turn on at all. I checked all the connections I could and they seem fine.

A problem started two days ago where; when it runs through a normal washing cycle; it contuously beeps about every 1 second when it reaches the Drying Cycle and the LED Green light flashes next to the Drying . I reset the breaker and tried again; same thing happened as it went through the normal cycle and when it reached the Drying part; same thing happened.

I have a Kenmore dishwasher Model # 665.1376 which has always been a quiet unit. This dishwasher is about 4 years old.

Hello all, We have an Ikea Whirlpool DWF 416 that is a couple of years old and has never caused any problems. From today the door has stopped shutting properly. The electronics and internal mechanisms seem to be working fine, since when you turn it on the cycle starts - but only if you hold the door shut. Has maybe a catch gone? Any ideas for fixing a door-shutting problem like this? Thanks in advance! Dave


The catch is no longer working. Contact IKEA for the replacement part. I'm sure it's available through EBAY or something, but probably not guaranteed or as reliable. ... Dishwashers
