\012Although\012a noisy washing machine is not typically a sign that something is\012broken, it definitely can be annoying. Usually the noise from a washing\012machine can be fixed fairly easily, but a few different fixes may need\012to be tried before it can be determined what the true culprit of the\012noise was.

Take\012the belt off and spin the drum by hand. If there is a rumble, remove\012the bearings and replace them with new ones.

The spider is the three-armed\012device that holds the drum in place. If there is one loud noise on each\012revolution of the drum, there is a good chance the spider has partially\012become loose. Tighten the bolts on the spider to silence the noise it\012causes.

If the noise the washing machine makes sounds like metal on\012metal, there is a good chance that some change has slipped from a\012pocket and is now in the dryer. Take a flashlight and look in the drum\012for coins, paper clips, and other small items.

Many washing machines make more noise than they should\012because they have not been properly balanced. Re-adjust the legs to\012make sure that they are all even. This will keep the washing machine\012from moving and will ensure that the noise it creates while it moves\012will go away.

Often a high-pitched squeaky noise can come from a\012drive belt that has been worn down. Simply replacing the old belt with\012a new one will fix this problem.

The dishwasher doesn't seem to have nearly enough water in it. The upper sprayer arm doesn't seem to be spinning when running (I open the door and look really quick) and the lower one looks like it barely spins and barely sprays water. The dishes are barely wet and the soap is just laying on the bottom. The water is on, there are no kinks in the supply line. It sounds like it is running, and pumps pumping, but being brand new I am not sure what it should sound like. It certainly doesn't sound li

Tecnik DW2677 Hi, my dishwasher regularly starts to bleep after starting a wash program. When the door is opened it stops bleeping and the right hand light flashes 7 times repeatedly in sequence. By holding down the start and program change buttons together for a few seconds, it will reset. If you then close the door all is well for a few seconds the pump sound like it expells some water and then it starts to bleep again. The above process can happen several times before it decides to do what it

Whirlpool dishwasher doesn't seem to fill with enough water despite good water pressure. Therefore, pump sounds like it is cycling from pumping water for about 2 seconds to going dry for 2 seconds to pumping water for 2 seconds to going dry for 2 seconds, etc. Spray arms rotate only for the 2 seconds when pump is actually pumping water. Dishes do not get clean.

We have a IKEA Whirlpool DWF 407 dishwasher that suddenly stopped pumping in water. It's just stuck in a loop where it sounds like the water pump is dryheaving and soon after it starts smelling a bit burnt and smells a bit like a battery. I've checked the overflooding breaker and there's no water down there and I can hear the switch turning on if I move the floater upwards. Also checked so that the water hose up on top of the machine is securely fixed. Any ideas?

Hello, I have a Kitchen Aid (model # KUDMO1T JWHO) dishwasher that runs the motor in all cycles, with water fill & drain working fine, but the pump is not pumping water during any cycle, as the spinners and the inside of the washer are dry when I open the door, except for the water sitting in the bottom. Also, no normal swishing sound of water when the motor runs in any cycle. Looks to me like a mechanical break in the pump drive. How do I check the pump drive on this model? Do you have any

Fills with water, sounds like it starts to pump water then stops, then start again. It attempts to start pumping water 3 or 4 times them turns off leaving the water in the tub. I have read about the water needing to heat up for the cycle to advance. When I check the water that is left in the tub it is warm but not hot. The heating element is not hot either. I did a continuity test on the heating element and it seems to check out ok. I also did a continuity test on the red wire from the heating e

My Bosch diswasher is hanging up in the cycle (at 102 mins. in normal cycle and 38 mins in quick cycle). I hear what sounds like a one second pumping of water into the sink area, a pause, and then another one second pumping of water, on and on, but there's no progression beyond this point. One possible cause: a few weeks ago someone turned off the hot water at the heater and another person tried to run the dishwasher. The dishwasher did not function because it could not get hot water.

Disposal plugged up and water backed up into dishwasher. Cleared disposal and dishwasher drain line. Checked around sump but dishwasher won't pump out. Sounds like pump is trying to run. I can blow air through the drain hose from the disposal and get bubbles in the water. Turned off breaker for 1 min. then tried reset. Can hear pump humming.

The pump is humming because its still trying to get all the water out of the unit. Deinstall the dishwasher and pull the entire dishwasher out from under your cabinet. Next step would be to disconnect the drain line from the drain pump and check to ... Dishwashers

I have the GE Quiet Power 3 Model gld4400n10bb. When I start a wash I can hear it fill with water (to about 1/2 inch below the heating element). It then waits for about 5-7 minutes and pumps the water out. It fills again several times and pumps out. It doesn't sound like it is washing though. The whole interior of the dishwasher is covered with dried soap. I can also tell that water is not spraying around the whole interior. Any ideas?

I am a licensed plumber who installed a frigidaire fdb1o5rem1 dishwasher for a customer about 2 years ago. It has water to the solenoid valve and the screen is clean. I can see water coming in to the unit on left side through the port hole on the inside of the unit. Dishes do not get clean and it doesnt act like water is being distrubuted inside the dishwasher.

My ASKO 1805 Dishwasher started to smell weird and white smoke came from it. I turned it off, but after I turned it on again it just keeps pumping water in and out, I can't get in contact with it (None of the indicator lights are working and it is not reacting to any commands) In addition the safety feauture that is supposed to stop all operation the moment the door is opened is no longer working. (i.e. even with the door open it is still pumping water) Does it sound like an expensive repair? (

So I found this power washer for sale. The seller claims that the washer generates a good stream of water, not just full power. He also mentions that after a few minutes the engine starts to bog down like it is working extra hard. Does this sound like a pump issue? Could something be clogged or would the pump need to be replaced? Or should I avoid this power washer?

Our Asko D1716 dishwasher functions to fill and empty but the pump which causes the sprayers to rotate and distribute the water does not function. The local appliance repairman diagnosed the problem as a bad pump (he called it a motor). Since the pump is a $400 part plus labor, is it possible that the problem is something else like a bad motor capacitor or relay? When the cycle calls for the pump to come on, there is no sound except for a very soft hum.

When you turn it on the pump kicks on and it pumps water out of the resivior at the bottom of the washer. It sounds like thats as far as it gets.Does the pump turn on and off buy a timer or is there a float switch?

I have a 5 year old KUDI01FLSS and it fills with water but does not spray water arround durring cycle (it does sound like it is working though). It will also drain the water when I hit cancel. I cleaned the filter screens but they were in good shape. I now suspect that it is the pump assembly. Anyone know if that is the direction I should head?

Yes, you are on the right track, the pump may have something in it clogging up a little bit so that it doesn't have enough water pressure to spin the spray arm. Clean out the pump and see if that helps is your best bet since it is working otherwise. ... KitchenAid 24 in. KUDI01FLSS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher
