Whirlpool dishwasher model DUB700XB has quit cycling. Fills with water but will not start wash cycle. Making intermittent humming noise unless the door is open to disengage the switch, even when on stop. No LEDs lighting when rotating the dial through the various cycles. Unit is old and wondering if it's better to buy a new one rather than fix this and have something else go wrong in the not to distant future. Thanks in advance

Made funny noise; stopped to investigate; then wouldn't restart; followed directions below from FixYa and restarted. It finished the cycle, apparently correctly, except it left a little water in the tub. Also, continued to make a lot of noise--a loud motor hum/buzz or similar. Did not make this noise during dry cycle. Dishwasher is Kenmore Model 665; stock number 16839. Can you give continued diagnostic instructions? Appears there is a cracked washer under the lower wand assembly; th


The solution was nearly correct. The person who answered only forgot to mention that water level and pressure switch must be tested. This can cause drain pump working longer than necessary and humming, and machine underfilling, which can cause noise ... Dishwashers

My Kenmore Elite dishwasher (model 665.17462300) is not spraying the water from the basin in the bottom up through the rest of the dishwasher. The basin fills with water, then just makes a humming noise and appears to splash a little of the water around the very bottom of the dishwasher. When we cancel the cycle, it does drain out the water from the basin. I cleaned all the gunk and debris out of the basin in the bottom, but it didn't make any difference.

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

Dishwasher hums I have a 2003 Kenmore Elite Ultra Wash Dishwasher model #665.17469300. I started the wash today. The water came in the unit and started washing then I heard it stop and it just started making a humming noise. I was afraid it was going to overheat or something so I cancelled the washed and it drained out. I started the unit up on a different cycle and the water came in the unit but did not wash it just hummed so I cancelled and drained it again. I did that on all cycles and the sa

Kenmore dishwasher When i run the dishwasher through a normal cycle, it makes a noise (like a buzzing/grinding sound). Its not normal. Unit is just over a year old (warranty exp 3/27/08) Is this something simple to diagnose?

Kenmore Elite dishwasher Model #665 1597 2992 Machine fills with water but thereafter it neither washes nor drains. Machine will not drain when I advance the cycle by pressing the Cancel/Drain button. There was a report that there was some noise when the machine first failed. I do not hear anything when I try to run a cycle. What might the problem be? How does one turn the motor manually to see if it is bound up by something? If it is the motor do I want to pay an extra $70 to $100 and

I have a Kenmore Dishwasher Model #665.168790000 and the water fills just fine and empties fine when cancelling cycle but when pressing any wash cycle the pump/motor just makes a loud humming noise and does nothing.

I have a Kenmore dishwasher model #17519200. I loaded it last night as usual and closed the door. I pressed the wash cycle I wanted and pressed the start button. I heard it starting to fill with water as usual. After it filled with water it should have gone into the wash cycle mode but it just started making a buzzing noise for about a minute or two then just stopped. I pressed cancel to drain it and it drains fine. I have kept trying to re-run it but it just does the same thing I described.

Noisy dishwasher My dishwasher is about 2 years old and about 98% of the time it makes a very loud growl/rumbling noise in the wash and rinse cycles. I have checked to make sure that it is not clogged and open the door during the cycle but can't pinpoint where the noise is coming from. Sometimes it runs with no noise but that is not usually the case. Any thoughts?


This is a known issue for GE dishwashers and may be similar for other\015\012models too.  The fix is simple.  The noise is due to\015\012vibration of the arm for the middle sprayer.  Just secure it with\015\012a tie wrap or wire and th ... Dishwashers

Dishwasher is making a loud grinding noise when it's started. Doesn't matter the cycle choice; the cycle starts as normal then once started up starts making a sort of grinding noise as the water is pulsing, like something is stuck or blocking the "push" of water. I couldn't see anything stuck in the bottom - any thoughts before I call a repair person? I've never owned a dishwasher before - maybe there's a basic drain/blockage thing I should check out first? And, any recommendations for repair

Hi, I've got a GE dishwasher (model GSD3207P00WW) which is making a horrible grinding noise... it still seems to work, however, it's loud enough that my girlfriend is terrified the machine is going to explode/light on fire/burn the house down/etc... It seems to happen intermittently (although lately it's been worse) and generally only goes on for about 2 minutes, around 2-3 times during each cycle. Any ideas?
