Dishwasher making loud noise during wash cycle

\015 This dishwasher has always been very quiet until recently. Now, as soon as the wash cycle starts there is a loud noise. The noise is so loud one can hear it anywhere in the house.\015

\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012It's noisy\015\012\015\012If your dishwasher seems noisy, check these:

Water-inlet valve
Motor
Heater fan
Pump
\015\012\015\012\015\012Water-inlet valve\015\012\015\012An aging water-inlet valve can sometimes fail slowly, rather than all at once. It can shudder on and off rapidly, causing the incoming water lines to shake, rumble, and rattle--sometimes violently. If yours is doing this, replace the inlet valve.

  • As motor bearings wear out, they can become quite loud when the motor runs. They wear out quickly if they frequently get wet, because the water washes away the motor bearing grease. Bearings can get wet if the spin seal is defective. Then there will also be water leaking onto the floor beneath the dishwasher. Replace the seal if it leaks (read about the main tub seal in the "It leaks" section, later).

  • If, from beneath the dishwasher, you can see a round, plastic disc that's mounted to the top of the motor (a "slinger"), it may have broken free of the motor shaft. If so, it could be rattling around the shaft while the motor is running. If that's the problem, you need to replace the motor.


\015\012\015\012\015\012Heater fan\015\012\015\012If the heater fan bearings are rusted or worn, they may squeal, or scrape loudly during the drying cycle. If this is the problem, replace the fan motor. Alternatively, the fan blade may be loose. If so, you need to replace it.

\015\012\015\012\015\012Pump\015\012\015\012Small fruit pits, toothpicks, and fragments of glass sometimes get stuck in the pump. When this happens, open the pump and remove the debris. The pump is usually mounted directly to the motor, then attached to the bottom of the dishwasher. 

To get to the pump, you usually need to remove the lower rack, the spray arms, and the spray arm support from the inside of your dishwasher. A dishwasher pump isn't obvious. Look for an impeller--a round, plastic fan blade-type device that spins around and pushes the water toward the drain. When you can see the drain impeller, you should be able to see the clogging debris.

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?

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!!!

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.

I have a Maytag MDBH945AWS dishwasher that makes loud noises when running through the wash cycle. When first purchased the DW was whisper quiet. At about 6 months it was noticeably louder.

Dishwasher makes grinding noise during wash cycle (after pre-wash). noise persists for 15-20 minutes. It seems as though the inlet valve doesn't open during this phase of the cycle. adding water to the dishwasher manually eliminates the noise and water circulates through the wash arms. I'm trying to determine if this is a controller issue or a valve/pump issue.
