Whining noise with Kenmore 16032 dishwasher

\015 I have a Kenmore dishwasher #16032 and during the wash cycles it makes whirring & whining noises. I have checked the surface of the drain guard for items and cannot see anything otherwise in the drain. How do I remove the lower spray arm & plastic guard to further inspect the unit? Are there any other suggestions as to what I might check? Thanks. JMS\015

Answers :

I had a similar issue, I removed the lower spray arm (had to hold center plastic tab with pliers and then unscrewed and lifted up the arm). Then I removed the cover with the screen filter(4 screws) and then removed the top half of the stainless chopper housing (1 screw). Found that things like cherry pits, elastic bands, bread plastic ties had blocked the water inlet to the chopper and the area around the chopper blade. Cleaned it all up, reassembled and machine works great! Mine was so blocked that I was hardly getting any water pressure to the upper rack.

Noisy dishwasher my Kenmore quietguard 4 has developed an exceptionally loud hum/buzzing noise seemingly coming from the door of the dishwasher, when closed, locked and put on either drain or wash cycle.If the unit is allowed to sit for 1-2 days, the drain cycle will empty the tub without the buzzing noise starting. If anything else is attempted afterwards, like a wash cycle, the noise immediatley starts at a low level, then becomes steadily louder, until the full volume is reached, and does not

Howling noise Our kenmore dishwasher has a howling type noise but only while it washes, no noise when it is filling or when it is emptying. I have took it down on the inside and checked for anything that might be stopping the pump, but see nothing. Any suggestions? my husband thought it might be bushing in the motor but says it should do this also when it is pumping out. HELP.

My Kenmore Elite dishwasher (model 665.17462300) is not spraying the water from the basin in the bottom up through the rest of the dishwasher. The basin fills with water, then just makes a humming noise and appears to splash a little of the water around the very bottom of the dishwasher. When we cancel the cycle, it does drain out the water from the basin. I cleaned all the gunk and debris out of the basin in the bottom, but it didn't make any difference.

Made funny noise; stopped to investigate; then wouldn't restart; followed directions below from FixYa and restarted. It finished the cycle, apparently correctly, except it left a little water in the tub. Also, continued to make a lot of noise--a loud motor hum/buzz or similar. Did not make this noise during dry cycle. Dishwasher is Kenmore Model 665; stock number 16839. Can you give continued diagnostic instructions? Appears there is a cracked washer under the lower wand assembly; th

Kenmore dishwasher has loud noise during fill. If you let it go, the washer fills. Once filled, noise stops and wash cycle continues. Sounds like plumbing does when there is air in the pipes. Not a grinding sound. Very deep pitch. Stops when the washer fills with water.


This isn't a solution but rather a comment, if the problem is happening only during the fill, then it could be the water inlet valve. Perhaps there is a soliniod going in the valve, watch to see if the fill cycle starts to dimminish over time. Does t ... Kenmore Dishwashers

The dishwasher makes a whining noise while washing; It started doing this a short time age. The dishwasher is about 1 1/2 years old. It almost sounds like there is something in the pump, , but I can't find a schematic.


The problem would be either something in sump area of the pump near the chopper or a bad main bearing in the motor. Since it is fairly new I would suspect something in the sump.

Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher (Mod: 665.1373) makes bad noise after the tub fils and the pump starts running. (Not sure how to describe noise.) Bad pump? Other? I have checked for anything obstructing rotating parts and that is definitely not it. My guess is something wrong with the pump, but not sure. If so, I'm wondering what my options are. Like are their common problems with pumps that can be fixed at home? Replacement?


Definately sounds like a pump on its way out. Probably not the pump itself - but the starting capacitor.However it may be cheaper for you in the long run to have a professional out to diagnose the problem instead of throwing money into it blind ... Dishwashers

Kenmore dishwasher When i run the dishwasher through a normal cycle, it makes a noise (like a buzzing/grinding sound). Its not normal. Unit is just over a year old (warranty exp 3/27/08) Is this something simple to diagnose?


Mine eventually "fixed itself". I think some debris got caught and eventually (5 cycles or so) got ground up and sent through the drain. The noise changed each time it got closer "flushing out" ... Kenmore 24 in. 17482 / 17484 / 17489 Built-in Dishwasher
