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.

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?

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.

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

I just moved into a house that has a Maytag Quiet 300 dishwasher. After about 2 weeks, I'm hearing a VERY loud, almost grinding noise about 6-7 minutes into the wash cycle, then again near the end of the wash cycle. It sounds like a motor thing and I'm hoping to avoid a repair bill right now, the cost of the move wiped us out. Is this something that I can fix, and if not, will continuing to run the dishwasher with the noise kill it?

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!!!
