My dishwasher is making a buzzing sound, sounds like its coming from the undersided of the machine. Maybe while pumping water? It is pretty much a constant noise, subsided briefly relatively early in the cycle. In the manual, on page 21, it says under noises that it could be in the wash module and will stop when the object is ground up. Is that possible on this unit?

I have a Maytag dishwasher that's 17 yr. old; Model WU202, Series 01. When it's going through the washing cycle, it makes a noise that sounds like water going through a small tube. It'll happen at random times. What could it be?

The dishwasher makes a whining noise while washing; It started doing this a short time age. The dishwasher is about 1 1/2 years old. It almost sounds like there is something in the pump, , but I can't find a schematic.


The problem would be either something in sump area of the pump near the chopper or a bad main bearing in the motor. Since it is fairly new I would suspect something in the sump. I have put together some instructions on how to take this apart and clea ... Whirlpool GU2700XTSS / GU2700XTSY Built-in Dishwasher

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

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

Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher (Mod: 665.1373) makes bad noise after the tub fils and the pump starts running. (Not sure how to describe noise.) Bad pump? Other? I have checked for anything obstructing rotating parts and that is definitely not it. My guess is something wrong with the pump, but not sure. If so, I'm wondering what my options are. Like are their common problems with pumps that can be fixed at home? Replacement?


Definately sounds like a pump on its way out. Probably not the pump itself - but the starting capacitor.However it may be cheaper for you in the long run to have a professional out to diagnose the problem instead of throwing money into it blind ... Dishwashers

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 took it down on the inside and checked for anything that might be stopping the pump, but see nothing.

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

I own a Miele G977 Plus dishwasher. There is what looks like a vent at the top left corner of the door. During the course of a wash a noise that sounds like a fan comes from this vent. Whwn the wash is complete and I open the door of the dishwasher water flows out of the vent onto my kitchen floor. What is the problem and how do I rectify it. Tom


Hi Tom, welcome to Fixya.\015\012\015\012The issue is likely just the blower and housing drain hose blocked with "crude" from time & use. If you take the door panel off ( watch those edges they are VERY sharp ) and unfasten the control panel as well ... Dishwashers

I have the GE Quiet Power 3 Model gld4400n10bb. When I start a wash I can hear it fill with water (to about 1/2 inch below the heating element). It then waits for about 5-7 minutes and pumps the water out. It fills again several times and pumps out. It doesn't sound like it is washing though. The whole interior of the dishwasher is covered with dried soap. I can also tell that water is not spraying around the whole interior. Any ideas?

My kitchenaid KUDI01DL dishwasher began making a lot of noise while running, then subsequently decided not to circulate the water around to wash the dishes. It sounds like the motor is running (maybe) but there is no washing action going on. The machine will fill, drain and heat the water but nothing else. Is it likely that the pump/motor assembly has ceased to function properly? thanks...


The problem is very likely in the chopper and/or somewhat possible in the impeller. The chopper is replaceable from the front. Disassemble the pump, the chopper will be on its left side under a cover. That cover is kinda tricky to remove (remove all ... KitchenAid 24 in. KUDI01DL - Multiple Color Built-in Dishwasher

I just moved into a house that has a Maytag Quiet 300 dishwasher. After about 2 weeks, I'm hearing a VERY loud, almost grinding noise about 6-7 minutes into the wash cycle, then again near the end of the wash cycle. It sounds like a motor thing and I'm hoping to avoid a repair bill right now, the cost of the move wiped us out. Is this something that I can fix, and if not, will continuing to run the dishwasher with the noise kill it?


You can continue to run it. it may correct or else it will get worse.......then u can get back and i will help u decide what to do ... Dishwashers

Have a Kenmore Freestanding Dishwasher that was working when hooked up to the sink. When we plumbed it in and connected the electrical directly, we now get an "F4" flashing on the panel with a beeping noise and the pump sounds like it wants to drain but just get a sucking noise. I've tried putting water in it to prime the pump, but still doesn't want to work. Do the codes mean anything, or point to a specific part?
