The water is pumped out after the rinse cycle then it continues to run and make an unusual noise but nothing happens. The noise is almost a grinding sound. There is also a smell like some part may be hot or the wiring may be hot. I can reset the dishwasher and re-run the cycle up until that same point and it does the same thing again. I have had a repairman out twice in the last six months. The first time he could find nothing wrong because the problem was intermittent and he couldn't see anythi

My KitchenAid Model KUDE70FXSS 2 dishwasher is new to us today and has never been used before. It was hooked up professionally, but I assumed it would work, so tonight when I tried to run it, it lights up on panel, but it won't run any cycles. It will start putting water in the machine, but then cuts off. It starts making a grinding noise underneath the machine, and it clicks like it is trying to work, but the water doesn't wash. Hmmm. Anyone know what to do?

My kitchenaid KUDI01DL dishwasher began making a lot of noise while running, then subsequently decided not to circulate the water around to wash the dishes. It sounds like the motor is running (maybe) but there is no washing action going on. The machine will fill, drain and heat the water but nothing else. Is it likely that the pump/motor assembly has ceased to function properly? thanks...


The problem is very likely in the chopper and/or somewhat possible in the impeller. The chopper is replaceable from the front. Disassemble the pump, the chopper will be on its left side under a cover. That cover is kinda tricky to remove (remove all ... KitchenAid 24 in. KUDI01DL - Multiple Color Built-in Dishwasher

My dishwasher has stopped cleaning plates properly. It makes everything wet but at the end of the cycle the detergent block is half dissolved at the bottom. I have just run a cycle and opened the door during this. The bottom is full of soap suds and water and the top spray bar is dripping water after I open the door but when I close and then reopen a few secs later the top spray bar has definetly not rotated. The water is also not hot, this dishwasher is a cold fed only machine so I guess the el

Hello Dishwasher Whirlpool DWF A00 - the light is flashing indicating a fault. The interior appears to be too hot and the machine was making a noise similar to an element in a kettle with insuffient water. (Although there was WAS water in for the wash) Thanks for any help!

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

When starting wash cycle the dishwasher cda cw447 doesnt appear to be getting enough water in and is making a droning / whirring / electrical ? noise. pipes all connected ok inc aquastop water supply unit, no kinks etc. machine 3 1/2 yrs old, just started making this noise. appears to complete rapid cycle but still making unusual sound. water drains away fine from this cycle, dont believe pipes / hoses are blocked.


Try removing the inlet pipe, and refitting, might fix it, else likely that the \015\012Inlet water soleniod failing/failed or tiny mesh filter (it does come out for cleaning) behind the inlet hose clogged. Temporaily bypass the aquastop water s ... Dishwashers

When we switch our Beko DE 2541 on its running straight away with the stop/start button being pressed. On the last successful cycle completed it just carried on making a noise like it was running and has been doing the same ever since. We have tried tipping the machine at 45 degrees as advised but it is still making running noise and not finishing.


Sounds like you have a water leak. The machine is fitted with a leak detection device that runs the drain pump constantly as a safety mechanism. If you want to look your self you will need to pull the machine out and tilt it back and if possible remo ... Beko Dishwashers

I have a Honda GC160 5 horsepower power washer with 2400 psi. When its cold it is easy to start but after it has been running for a while the only way to start it is to have the water shooting out of the wand. Once it is hot and running if i stop the stream of water (release the trigger on the wand) then the machine shuts off. It seems like the only way to keep it running is to constantly have water running through the wand. Please help

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 Bosch SHU43C06UC/14. A few weeks ago it was making a loud terrible noise during the entire cycle. We figured it was on its last leg but it was still cleaning the dishes properly. Then with no explaination the noise stopped and the machine sounded normal again. Today when I started the machine it makes the normal sound when starting, but it acts like it is stuck at the beginning and does not fill with water. The timer also does not count down.

When the water should be filling or rinsing the machine is making a horrible, loud, noise and no water is coming out. The solutions I looked at for no water don't mention this noise - they mention a slight hum. This noise is as loud as a TV turned up almost all the way! This happened during a cycle - the wash ran fine and it got to the rinse and started this.


Hi,If the noise lasts beyond 2 minutes at a time (which it sounds like it does) then you have a motor problem. I am suspecting that the main seal has leaked onto the motor and is causing water to get into the motor. ... Maytag 24 in. MDB4100 Built-in Dishwasher

Maytag HDB8600AWW Dishwasher had been making noise (thought might be water valve, like previous DW), eventually stopped draining water, water now in bottom, I've let sit for couple weeks, looked inside, water was gone, I tried running again, it filled with water, but heard humming control panel noises for first time, then shuts itself off. Also, my handle needs replaced. Please let me know as soon as possible. Thanks in advance. David Weaver


Hi David\015\012\015\012The hum and all the noise that you have mentioned in your post states that the issue is with the pump and motor assembly. Please check the drain hose and try to clean the drain pump filter for any clogs, obstructions. Af ... Dishwashers

Our Whirlpool KUDP01ILBS2 dishwasher isn't working like it used to. Dishes seem to be getting partially clean, they aren't getting dry at all and it seems they may be being rinsed/washed with dirty water. There is plenty of water in the machine when I interupt the cleaning cycle. I always run the hot water in the sink before I start the dishwasher so the first water into the dishwasher is as hot as possible. Also the sani-rinse light is flashing when the cycle "completes".


Heat that is retained in the dishes is largely responsible for drying\015\012in this dishwasher. Since plastics do not retain heat very well, they\015\012will not dry as well as glasses, ceramics or metal dishes. Rinse aid\015\012must be used so that ... 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

I have a portable Sears dishwasher model # 66517769k600. It makes grinding noises when empying out the water, then stops. Sounds like maybe something is jaming the inpeller blades on the pump that removes the water as Water is left in dishwasher. It will restart in about 15 mins , run for 15 to 20 sec and stop again with same noises. What needs to be done to fix this issue? Approximate cost of part? Thanks in Advance, Chris

Problem: dishwasher (moel MDB6601AWW) will not run. The front panel has a light, between the "Delay 1-9" and "heated dry" buttons, and adjacent to small printed icon (looks like a tombstone with the number 3 inside). Last weekedn I shut off all the water in order to change a faucet, including the hot water feed to the washer. Now the fed to the washer is somewhat frozen -- I can only open it 1/8 turn.

It always seems like it never gets enough water to even make the spray arms work. I have even tried to make sure I am not running any hot water in the house. It is about 7 months old and has always acted this way. Could there be something wrong with the installation? My old Sears never had this problem.


Sounds to me as if there is a blockage in the water line supplying the dishwasher or a kink in the water line supplying the unit. Since the water is supplied from the angle stop under the sink there could be blockage at that point. What I would sug ... Dishwashers
