Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

When in dishwashing cycle, the jennaire dishwasher makes a loud mechanical humming sound, similar to a mechanical buzzing or humming sound. what is the problem and what parts are needed to fix.

Hi DJ.

A loud mechanical noise from inside the tub, like something that is grinding is almost always the impeller pump. The impeller is the part that pumps water in the spray arm. Before replacing the pump it is useful to check the hoses connected to pump.

If noise is grinding and mechanical and comes from inside the tub, also check the spray arms rotation.

If instead you get a soft humm from the back of the appliance, similar to the humming of a not well grounded sound amplifier, then the problem is likely a jammed inlet valve.

To find parts and diagrams try entering the full model number (as from service tag) in the websites listed at the link below:

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 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

Water remains in the bottom of the diswasher after the cleaning cycle has completed. We recently had a new kitchen faucet and garbage disposal installed. The dishwasher also hums during the dry cycle, I never noticed this before. Are these problems related? Do I need to get a repairman out here to fix the problem or can I do it myself?

Our Asko D1716 dishwasher functions to fill and empty but the pump which causes the sprayers to rotate and distribute the water does not function. The local appliance repairman diagnosed the problem as a bad pump (he called it a motor). Since the pump is a $400 part plus labor, is it possible that the problem is something else like a bad motor capacitor or relay? When the cycle calls for the pump to come on, there is no sound except for a very soft hum.

The disk washer doesn't drain at the end of the rinse cycle. There is a humming sound but no water is forced through the hose to the sink/garbabe disposal. At the end of the wash, there is a large amount of dirty water in the bottom of the washer. I removed the spray arms, the spray arm holder and the screen and then removed the water, and found a couple of pieces of plastic. But I don't see how I can remove additional parts from the washer bottom. What could the problem be? Is there a fi

I have a portable Sears dishwasher model # 66517769k600. It makes grinding noises when empying out the water, then stops.

I have a Kenmore dishwasher model #665.13842K601. The problem that it has is that it does not seem to be pumping the water around the tub after it fills. It will fill and drain fine but will not wash. I have removed the spray arms and checked all the parts that I can get to from the inside but fear that it may be a pump or jammed impeller. it does make a faint buzzing sound when it should be operating. Any input would be great. Thanks, Matt

What is the issue and how would I fix the problem. Thank you!
