Maytag mdb9150 dishwasher stopped at some point last night--found it this morning with flashing lights--I think "clean" and "heated dry", not sure.  I used "drain/off" to make sure there was mechanical noise--there was, so I don't think the machine is dead.  Purchased on 2001 with 5 year warranty, so out of luck there.  I tried turning off the electricity to the unit for a few hours; nothing improved.  When you start it (or think you have!) it makes noises for about a minute that sound promising

SMEG STX dishwasher does not complete the wash cycle, stopping after 3 minutes on all cycles displaying error code E1. The machine seems to start with the usual whirring noise but then stops after 3 minutes without pumping in water. The machine is a few years old now but has needed 2 new control panels already although this does not appear to be the problem this time. Any suggestions? Thanks DW

KUDK01ILBS5), SN: FR2702809. Have used this machine 6 years and just recently experienced noise that I eventually traced down to a bad recirculation pump bearing that failed due to a small leak in the shaft seal. Installed a new pump on Friday, 4/21/10 and that particular noise is now quieted. While the bearing noise was gone, there remains a pumped water noise that is quieted by manually adding about 1/2 gallon of water within the machine. So I now believe the water level is low, possib

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.

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

Hi I have a Neff built in dishwasher s5453X1GB/70 about 4 years old. Never had a problem before. Came downstairs last night to find the kitchen floor flooded. Water also still in machine. But must have been near end of cycle as plates all clean. I have read other links and opened pump compartment in centre of machine and syringed out all water and cleaned fan. When i switch on machine it is still making odd humming noise (emptying cycle?) I have read about anti -flood valve etc. Any more tip

My Bosch Classixx (about 10 years old) dishwasher won't fill The problem has only started since I pulled it out and cleaned! The programme sounds are as normal but no water enters the machine.

I have a JDB1090AWS about 3 years old. We noticed a smell and found cutting boards and plastic cups melted. Machine was off. Had to turn off the breaker. Checked both leads to element & have power even with machine off. Not sure if it could be the limiting thermostat; I assume that is to shut the heat down when it gets too hot.

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?

My 5-year old Bosch dishwasher leaves a somewhat fine grit on dishes? especially obvious on the inside of glasses. I use only Cascade detergent, use a rinse aid, don't overfill the machine, and always make sure that the filter at the bottom of the dishwasher is clean. I also make sure that the spinner is able to move freely. But, after all of that, I sometimes get very clean dishes; even more often, not. I see no rhyme or reason. I am presently looking at an entire load that has gone through

My dishwasher is working well but makes an intermittent whistling noise, 10 seconds 'on', 10 seconds 'off'. The machine is 2 years old and runs on water from a softening unit (less than 0.7 moles/litre). None of the manual's suggestions has worked. How can I stop this noise? Thanks, Jim.


This is caused by a partially blocked valve or inlet, it is a little blocked, and this sound you hear is the air pushed through it making a sound. You need to clean out the inlet valves. \012\012\012 ... AEG 24 in. Favorit 80860iW Built-in Dishwasher

My ariston lsv 66 dishwasher will not start washing cycle. It makes the pumping noise as it normally does at the start of the cycle and some water enters the bottom of the machine but then it stops. I have checked to make sure that there are no leaks so the problem is with the filling up of the machine. I live in a hard water area and haven't used anything to help reduce the limescale so expect this to be playing a part. I have tried all the washing cycles but the same thing happens. Any advic

I have a Delonghi dishwasher, it's a stand alone, like a washing machine. The water inlet is connected to the hot water tap, normally used for a washing machine. When we first started using the dishwasher, we kept getting the E4 error message, we reduced the water inlet pressure by turning down the tap, that worked for a while. Just a while ago, we started getting the E4 error message again, not sure we can turn down the tap any further without cutting the water off completely. Do you have a

I guess the spring(s) have broken - does anyone know if the spring is on the rhs looking at the front? I sure hope so, I can probably access that side without pulling the unit out! Is it good to spray these with WD-40 or do they just age anyway?
