Grinding noise from my GE Quiet Power 1 dishwasher

\015 I recently moved into a 2 y.o. previously owned home. The dishwasher is a GE Quiet Power 1 model. After being in the home for 2 months, the dishwasher suddenly started making a low hum/grinding type noise. It's not continuous, happening intermittently regardless of where it is in the wash cycle. Also, when it occurs, it oscillates - grrr, grr, grr, etc. rather than a continuous grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr... Thought it might have something to do with the ''bearings'' in the spray bar???\015

Solution #2 by user dwdamron is accurate. I checked the docking nozzle and sure enough the o-ring was gone. replaced the upper wash supply tube with new o-ring and problem was fixed.
The sound is almost always caused by a worn docking cone “O” ring on the main conduit. When the docking cone “O” ring wears, the mid level spray arm conduit is no longer constrained and it can vibrate against the docking cone, making the “growling” or vibrating sound. The recommended repair for this problem is to replace the titanium or gray docking cone.

Grinding Noise This dishwasher, the "quiet power II", makes quite a loud racket while in wash mode. I would call it a grinding noise. Sometimes, I can hit the front of it and it will stop, other times not so. And even sometimes, we can do two or three loads and the noise doesn't happen. (not often)


This is a definite fix for this problem! I used one wire tie to afix the pipe from the back of the dishwasher to the middle spray arm and wa-lah! The annoying noise is gone! ... Dishwashers

My Bosch dishwasher, model SHX46A05UC/30 has been working fine. I ran it once today on the Power Scrub Plus cycle (always use this one). Shortly after unloading the dishwasher I needed to run it again with more dishes. Within a few minutes of running the dishwasher I heard loud, almost grinding noises. Nothing appears to be stuck. Any ideas on what to do? This dishwasher has always been quiet up until today.

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?

GU980 dishwasher I have a buzzing sound when the washer is in drain mode. The manual indicates there might be something in the Power Clean Filter, and that it will go away when the object grinds up. I called Whirpool, and they said the same, and to run for 2-3 cycles to make go away. 2-3 cyles later, noise is still there. I noticed a nub off the rack that looks like an end peice of metal broke off from rust. My guess is it's stuck in the PCF, and will not grind up. I removed the nut, lower spray

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 Maytag built-in dishwasher Quiet Series model MDB8551AWB. When we press the Start, the lights light up, but after a few minutes all lights turn off. We've unplugged and plugged it back in. I've tried to repeat the 'start up' multiple times and sometimes it sounds like the motor is going to begin but then it pauses and stops. All lights turn off. No odd noises or grinds.

Hi. Our DS603I dishwasher starts on the Rinse cycle on its own - it beeps, red light flashing and no water entering the tub. It does this even if it is open. Similarly, when we try to turn it on to do a normal or heavy cycle, it starts (making quiet a loud noise) and then goes to the Rinse cycle, beeping, red light flashing, no water going into the tub. The pump wheel is turning. We can't find any blockages in the tubes. We have power-cycled it many times. Please help!

We recently purchased a new pump for our frigidaire gld4355rf dishwasher. The old one started making grinding noises. When we moved the dishwasher it had leaked due to a failure of an interior seal. Our new pump is now making the same grinding noise but it is not constant. When my husband adjusted the pump by using his hand when he got into a certain position the noise stops. We keep the screens clean. Is there an issue with the pump in this model?

I have a KitchenAid Dishwasher Model #KUDS03FTSS0 for about 1 1/2 years. Within the past week I have noticed it being noisier then before. I pulled off the bottom panel and the noise appears to becoming from the middle of the machine, an area that is covered by a semiclear plastic case. It has this noise when it is turning the spray wheel inside. Can this be the motor going bad? I installed the dishwasher and marveled at how Quiet it was. Now it's not that quiet machine in the kitchen.

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

I have no power to the dishwasher. I tried the circuit breaker, flipped it. No lights on, nothing. It must have been running when the power might have gone off, may be the power surged or something and it wasn't able to finish running the cycle.

I am a mechanically challenged mom and my husband won't be getting home for two more weeks. The dishwasher is a WhirlPool Gold Quiet

I have a new Ariston LKF720 dishwasher. In part of its wash cycle it is very noisy - not water noise, but a grating motor-like noise. Is there anything I can do? Is there anywhere I can watch a dishwasher do a run and listen to its noise, Ariston or other brand? We bought the present one off the floor and did not expect any problem, having had other dishwashers for years, they being quiet. The poor technician already changed the motor, but it is still just as noisy. I am even considering sellin
