GE Dishwasher makes loud banging noise

\015 Hello,I have a GE Profile Quiet Power 4 which recently has started to make a thumping/banging noise when I turn it on. It's rather loud (it can be heard upstairs) and is a ''circular'' or repetitive noise. I've tried starting a wash cycle without anything in it, and it still made the noise. I also made sure the water jets were free to spin and not obstructed. Any ideas what the issue could be?Thanks!\015

Answers :

Check the stainless steel cover on the bottom of the lower rack sprayer. If it has been bent downward on either end, it will hit the inside panel of the door near the bottom. It may score the panel as it hits on each rotation of the sprayer.

\015\012Just bend it back in position, carefully, with a pair of pliers. The technique required is similar to bending the pocket clip of a fountain pen back into the proper position after it has been sprung out too far. You might practice on a pen or mechanical pencil clip to see what I mean.
Most likely the tube that feeds the top water assembly is not supported well and is thumping around. Try pulling out the top tray and look straight down at it (ie: take a birds-eye view). You should see a tube leading from the middle of the top dish tray (where the spinning arm is) back towards the rear of the dishwasher. Look for a little plastic clip that attaches to the dish tray and which holds this tube in place. Unclip this from it's current location and slide it backwards towards the rear of the dishwasher. Re-clip it to the dish tray as far back as you can (you should be able to move it backwards at least two or three spaces).\015\012
\015\012This will provide better support for the water tube closer to where it connects to the rest of the dishwasher plumbing (at the back of the dishwasher) and keep it from moving around. Start your dishwasher up again and the grinding and thumping noise should be gone.

\015\012Amazing the kind of racket one misplaced clip can cause. I was ready to buy a new dishwasher before I finally figured this out. Saved $1500!\015\012

When I start the dishwasher, it sounds normal. A few minutes after it starts, it makes a loud, thumping noise that lasts for several minutes. After a while, it stops making noise, but about half way through the cycle, it starts making the loud, thumping noise again. It's loud, annoying, and does not get our dishes clean. We have to wash several dishes by hand AFTER we have run the dishwasher.

Hello, I have an LG-2120WHU and it has been making strange loud noises when washing for some time now.

I have an LG 1415M dishwasher and it is making an extremely loud noise. It's that loud when it gets to a certain part of the cycle that it is deafening. It starts to fill with water and then I presume when it starts to wash it makes this grinding loud noise. We have cleaned the filters as recommended in manual.

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 mdb6601awb maytag dishwasher. Sometimes when it starts the wash cycle it will make a loud squelling noise. Then if you pull on the handle and stop it, the machine will start and sometimes the noise will be gone. Or you may have to do this 3 or 4 times before it will stop making the squelling noise. I do notice when I pull up on the handle to stop the machine it makes some clicking noises and then the noise goes away. Thank You for any help you may be able to give me!!!

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

Made funny noise; stopped to investigate; then wouldn't restart; followed directions below from FixYa and restarted.

The dishwasher only makes the loud rumbling noise during the initial wash cycle, not during the cycle when it is pumping water out of the dishwasher and into the drain. I found some dental floss wrapped around the blade shaft when I cleaned the area out. The noise is now less but it is still there. I am wondering if the blade got twisted or the shaft got bent.
