LGDishwasher makes grinding noise several times during cycle

\015 Several times during each wash cycle, the drain runs (sounds normal), then the washer makes a loud grinding noise. If I open the door and put in additional water (usually 3 quarts), the grinding stops and it runs for another 20-30 minutes normally before doing the same thing (draining, then grinding). If I don't open the door, the grinding noise goes on for 20-30 seconds, then the washer quits with code E1 (which means low water level I think). I have opened the side panel and checked the high and low float switches; one of them had a fair amount of sticky crud built up on the sides of the well that the float sits in, but cleaning it out had no effect on the problem. I have also notice that inside the washer on the bottom, there are several fine mesh screens in a circle around the center motor and washing assembly (I assume for screening crud out of the drain water); one of these screens has a hoe melted in it.\015

Answers :

Please confirm that you have an LG LDS 5811 dishwasher?\015\012Approximately how many years old is the dishwasher?\015\012
\015\012First things first: regarding the 'crud'\015\012Run at least one cycle, with no detergent powder added - and when you go put in the extra water, add up to two cups of vinegar plus more water and let it run until it errors. This will not fix the major problem, but staring with a clean sump area (and keeping it clean) is a good start. FYI: Stop using all gels and tablets, switch to a brand name detergent powder-like Electrosol or Cascade. Always use high quality powder in all dishwashers, especially energy and water conserving DWs like the modern LG models.\015\012
\015\012Next, given that you are getting an E! code, triple check that you do not have a leak, especially directly under the dishwasher. If not, start at the end of the DW drain hose (does it connect to a sink disposal?) follow it back to the DW. That hose must rise to at least the height of the bottom of the counter top or be connected to an Air Gap valve. If the hose does not have that rise in it, your problem is caused by natural siphoning out of the dishwasher into the drain. Either add an air gap (even if you don;t have a sink disposal) or suspend the hose high from the bottom of the counter.\015\012
\015\012Regarding the filter (mesh screens) in the sump area, while it may be melted, I doubt that melting was caused by the dishwasher itself, because the heating element is well below the filter.\015\012
\015\012Pull the lower spray arm up and out. Remove the nine phillips screws that hold the filter down and then pull the filter. Wash out the "self cleaning" filter housing. \015\012
\015\012The LG replacement part for the upper housing with the mesh screen panels is: FILTER ASSEMBLY, MESH 5231DD1001A I also recommend you replace the filter seal:\015\012SEAL 4036DD3001A\015\012
\015\012Then inspect under the filter in the sump area for any debris. Remove it but watch out for broken glass! Use a flashlight and look real close for anything foreign.\015\012
\015\012Inspect the Impeller, look for damage and confirm that it spins easily but is securely attached.\015\012
\015\012Reassemble and test out.\015\012
\015\012Good Luck!

The water is pumped out after the rinse cycle then it continues to run and make an unusual noise but nothing happens. The noise is almost a grinding sound. There is also a smell like some part may be hot or the wiring may be hot. I can reset the dishwasher and re-run the cycle up until that same point and it does the same thing again. I have had a repairman out twice in the last six months. The first time he could find nothing wrong because the problem was intermittent and he couldn't see anythi

Hi, I've got a GE dishwasher (model GSD3207P00WW) which is making a horrible grinding noise... it still seems to work, however, it's loud enough that my girlfriend is terrified the machine is going to explode/light on fire/burn the house down/etc... It seems to happen intermittently (although lately it's been worse) and generally only goes on for about 2 minutes, around 2-3 times during each cycle. Any ideas?

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

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?


This is a known issue for GE dishwashers and may be similar for other\015\012models too.  The fix is simple.  The noise is due to\015\012vibration of the arm for the middle sprayer.  Just secure it with\015\012a tie wrap or wire and th ... Dishwashers

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!!!

My kenmore/whirlpool dishwasher makes a noise, sort of a grinding noise, throughout most of the cycle. I have removed the pump and motor thinking that their might be something in the pump, but there is nothing there. My guess is that the motor is making the noise, but I do not know how to tell other than by replacing the motor and seeing if the noise goes away.

Grinding Noise This dishwasher, the "quiet power II", makes quite a loud racket while in wash mode. I would call it a grinding noise. Sometimes, I can hit the front of it and it will stop, other times not so. And even sometimes, we can do two or three loads and the noise doesn't happen. (not often)


This is a definite fix for this problem! I used one wire tie to afix the pipe from the back of the dishwasher to the middle spray arm and wa-lah! The annoying noise is gone! ... Dishwashers

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.

I have an LG 1415M dishwasher and it is making an extremely loud noise. It's that loud when it gets to a certain part of the cycle that it is deafening.
