Having problems with your Fisher and Paykel 23 in. DD-603SS Built-in Dishwasher ?

Bottom unit is very noisy, like a grinding sound


Answers :

Sounds like it could be a bit of solid rubbish (eg broken glass) sitting in the bottom of the water pump. remove the racks, and the stainless steel base plate and then you have access to the pump. turn the outside ring to release the lock and simply lift out , (carefully). mop up all the water from the motor housing, and see if anything is left there eg small bit of glass/bone. check the plastic bottom of the pump for any damage. when reassembling line the plastic guides up in the pump hole, it will drop down when in place, then twist and lock the top on, and reassemble. DONT FORCE IT BACK TOGETHER. cheers pi

My maytag mdb7600aws quiet series 300 is making a grinding noise from the bottom and sounds like something is bouncing around in the pump or a bearing is going out in the motor... What is the best way to fix this? This unit is far from quiet!

I am looking for a manual to remove the bottom sprayer on a Maytag DWC 8240 AAW dishwasher. This is a portable unit that has chipped the crockery since we bought it. Now during only the drying phase there is a grinding noise that sounds like the glass chips are being ground up. There are some screws that I can remove to find what I think is the filter. How do I get to the filter?And where can I find an exploded parts diagram? Thanks

Loud grinding noise sounds like something small and hard is getting caught in some kind of rotary. The sound comes from underneath the dishwasher at or near the motor. I screwed the big circular plastic filter on the bottom of the inside of the dishwasher, but found no significant debrie. It did not resolve the problem.

The dishwasher doesn't seem to have nearly enough water in it. The upper sprayer arm doesn't seem to be spinning when running (I open the door and look really quick) and the lower one looks like it barely spins and barely sprays water. The dishes are barely wet and the soap is just laying on the bottom. The water is on, there are no kinks in the supply line. It sounds like it is running, and pumps pumping, but being brand new I am not sure what it should sound like. It certainly doesn't sound li

Kenmore 17369 When cycle starts... it sounds terrible (crackly sounding).... doesn't sound like the water is coming into the dishwasher. If I add water to the machine during a rinse cycle...it will wash and drain on its own.... Then I hit cancel. Please help.. I can't locate the owners manual.. Do you know where I can get one..

I have a Siemens Dishwasher. I'm not sure of the model but it is built in, has concealed controls and was purchased about 6 years ago at Best Buy. It sort of looks like the SL85. When started, it runs for a few minutes and then starts to make a horrible sound. ALmost a grinding sound but may also be like water trying to get through a small opening. The sound does not stop even after turning off the DW and even the power to it. Only turning off the water supply does it stop. Help?

Bottom unit does not always seal and causes water to collect in bottom pan which throw unit into f1 status. Sometimes it stays sealed and is difficult to pull drawer out. Is there a way to reset the unit properly? I know how to pull the drawer and fix the f1 problem but it seem like the seal issue is becoming more frequent. Thanks

My dishwasher makes a terrible grinding sound during most of the cycle. When it first starts up it does not, then after about five minutes it starts in. It it very loud and continuous. We have taken the screws out of the bottom and check to see if anything was caught in it. Nothing was there and it still grinds. The dishes are spotless, but the sound is terrible. Any suggestions?

I have a Kenmore Elite dishwasher (model 630.17303406) and it just stopped working. Doesn't drain what's left in the bottom and just makes a humming sound when turned on.

Maytag MDBTT79AWW dishwasher fills and nothing else. Once filled you hear a click, followed by a humming sound for 3-5 seconds, then silence. This will happen two or three more times, and then unit will shut off. Motor doesn't start. Repairman says he thinks control board is bad, but he sounds like he is guessing. I performed a field service test , which indicated a fault in the high current motor circuit. Unit is seven years old. Don't know whether to attempt repair, or replace.


That sounds like the motor trying to start but being jammed it is shutting off via an internal breaker. Check for something in the bootom of dishwasher that might have gotten down there that could do this. You might have to take the sprayer off and s ... Dishwashers

I am a licensed plumber who installed a frigidaire fdb1o5rem1 dishwasher for a customer about 2 years ago. It has water to the solenoid valve and the screen is clean. I can see water coming in to the unit on left side through the port hole on the inside of the unit. Dishes do not get clean and it doesnt act like water is being distrubuted inside the dishwasher. Soap never gets washed away from door. Dishwasher makes funny sound in mid cycle like the pump is not running in wash cycle. Discharge p

LG dishwasher LDS4821BB just started making a new grinding sound while washing. No similar sounds while filling or draining, so I wouldn't think it is the motor assembly like many answers suggest. We installed it March 2009. This sound may be similar to one which led to the motor assembly being replaced while still under warranty about nine months ago. Unfortunately, the LG repairman was too hard of hearing to be able to diagnose that replacement, so he did it based on our description of

I have been negligent in not cleaning out the filters and after the unit more or less stopped, I pulled the two filters finding them full of what looked like soap scum. I cleaned them best I could (but noticed the inner filter still had most of the small holes blocked) Started the unit and it cleaned alright for a couple of days. Last night after running a load all the water did not empty from the bottom of the tub? Any suggestion on what wrong? Bought the unit on 1/19/05. Thanks
