I have a Siemens Dishwasher. I'm not sure of the model but it is built in, has concealed controls and was purchased about 6 years ago at Best Buy. It sort of looks like the SL85. When started, it runs for a few minutes and then starts to make a horrible sound. ALmost a grinding sound but may also be like water trying to get through a small opening. The sound does not stop even after turning off the DW and even the power to it. Only turning off the water supply does it stop. Help?

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

Good afternoon - I have a Whirlpool model LSR7233EQ0 washer. The washer works fine in regards to draining, filling, lower agitator works...however, the top agitator does not engage and almost sounds like grinding. However (I know you are not supposed to do this), when the machine is in the wash cycle, I push sideways on the top of the agitator and it then does engage and agitate. When I release pressure, the top agitator does not work. Thanks for your help, Michael


Whirlpool uses a split agitator design. The upper portion is called the auger, while the bottom is called the agitator. Between these components is a agitator cam assembly. This problem is commonly caused by worn agitator dogs or the agitator cam ass ... Dishwashers

We have a Maytag built-in dishwasher Quiet Series model MDB8551AWB. When we press the Start, the lights light up, but after a few minutes all lights turn off. We've unplugged and plugged it back in. I've tried to repeat the 'start up' multiple times and sometimes it sounds like the motor is going to begin but then it pauses and stops. All lights turn off. No odd noises or grinds.

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?

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

When we open the dishwasher door, it produces a very loud metalicsqueeking sound- like something is rubbing or binding. The door is not catching on anything externally, and there doesn't seem to be resistance to opening or closing. I have lubricated all the external parts- pully, cable, etc, with silicon spray, but the sound continues. It is difficult to pinpoint the exact location- obviously at the bottom of door. What must I do to correct the squeeky noise? Thanks for your help!

GU980 dishwasher I have a buzzing sound when the washer is in drain mode. The manual indicates there might be something in the Power Clean Filter, and that it will go away when the object grinds up. I called Whirpool, and they said the same, and to run for 2-3 cycles to make go away. 2-3 cyles later, noise is still there. I noticed a nub off the rack that looks like an end peice of metal broke off from rust. My guess is it's stuck in the PCF, and will not grind up. I removed the nut, lower spray

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?


You can continue to run it. it may correct or else it will get worse.......then u can get back and i will help u decide what to do ... Dishwashers
