Having problems with your KitchenAid Dishwashers ?

My dishwasher blades do not turn. I have replaced the water valve so water is getting into the unit. I have not however, cleaned out the area below the lower blade. Could this be the problem or does it sound like a motor problem? There was a bit of a burning smell up to this problem. Thanks.

Dishwasher is reading "overfilling", but no water is in unit. Door can open, noise of motor or pump continues and will not shut off even with the Power switch. Only way to stop noise is to turn off the circuit breaker at the electrical panel. What does this sound like to you?

I have GE GSD2300r00bb, it was working just fine the other day no unusual noise, today we tried to run it, just a little bit into the cycle, i heard a strange stalling noise that sound like the motor is stuck or something, i put a camera(in a ziplock bag) in the dishwasher to see if the blade is spinning, no spin, the water did squirt for about 1 sec then stop but still leaking out somewater. Is it the motor or the water pump. I just got this dishwasher about 1.5 yrs. Is this something i can fix

Motor makes noise shortly after starting, makes normal sound level during main body of wash, then makes noise again during what I'm guessing is the rinse cycle. Not sure if it is a pump or motor problem. Slight electrical smell noticed after finishing the ''cancel/drain''. Water does not seem to be sprayed around washer during normal cycle, even though water has been in the washer.


Make sure the sprayer arm is turning freely, check for something stuck in the base of the sprayer arm (food or utinsel) preventing it from turning. ... Dishwashers

Obtained this haier hdp18pa portable dishwasher, thought I would give it a try. The unit will not fill with water, turn the power on you can hear the motor or the pump running but no water comes in. THe 4 display lights flash and beep a series of times and then stop only to repeat the sound off in a every few second sequence. I have tried the remedies offered online, tilting the unit does not seem to work for me on this one. I changed out the water inlet valve but nothing changed and I got the s

My dishwasher is making a buzzing sound, sounds like its coming from the undersided of the machine. Maybe while pumping water? It is pretty much a constant noise, subsided briefly relatively early in the cycle. In the manual, on page 21, it says under noises that it could be in the wash module and will stop when the object is ground up. Is that possible on this unit?

Kenmore (Whirlpool) 655 1589910 Dishwasher. Fills with water, motor makes horrible noise (buzzing / loud hum). Dishes do not wash and there is no evidence that any water pumped up to the spray arms. Spray arms are not clogged. We have a fully functioning water softener so it is not a hard water issue. Unit does drain normally. Either filter is badly clogged or pump is bad. How do I get to these parts to check them out?

I have a Kenmore Dishwasher Model #665.168790000 and the water fills just fine and empties fine when cancelling cycle but when pressing any wash cycle the pump/motor just makes a loud humming noise and does nothing. I took apoart the lower assemblies to clean everything out but the problem hasn't gone away. Do I need to replace the motor or the whole motor assembly (also contains impeller kit)??? Also, I don't think I need to replace the whole sump & motor assembly do I???

Humming noise i have a GE nautilus GSD2200 model which has not been used more than 4 years that is giving me trouble.  it's making a loud humming noise (the noise comes and goes, comes and goes) which seems to be coming from the motor area at the bottom of the unit.  I stopped it in the middle of the cycle, but the water seems to be stagnant at the bottom.  any suggestion on fixing the problem myself?

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?

Dishwasher is not cleaning well, dirty film all over everything, like its not rinsing. In rinse cycle only, some water comes out of lower left port inside but nothing else. Hear a low buzz underneath unit like a motor or pump is energized but no water getting to the top.During normal wash cycle, buzz from underneath seems to cycle on and off, say every minute or so like its cycling on an overload. Do I have a bad pump and if so how do I get to it?

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 maytag dishwasher lower and upper spray arms are working intermittently. Sometimes there is plenty of water spraying around, other times, I can hear what sounds like the motor running but the arms are not moving (or not moving much) and very little water is splashing around. When this happens, the detergent sometimes doesn't even get washed out of its compartment.

When I start my GE Quite Power 1 dishwasher it makes a rumbling sound eminating from the base probably the water spin mechanism that sits on the motor is my guess? As the cycle advances the noise continues, any idea what is causing the rumbling noise to occur during the wash cycle?

Ice maker cannot eject cubes. I took off the front cover and found several contact points for checking the motor, water valve, thermostat, mold heater. There is also a line voltage and neutral contact. Are these contacts live only during certain parts of the cycle? I suspect the heater isnt working to loosen the cubes so they cant be ejected. The motor sounds lilke its running but the ejector is not moving nor is the Gear on the front of the unit. Can someone give me a full description of this t
