Having problems with your Maytag 24 in. MDB4100 Built-in Dishwasher ?

When the water should be filling or rinsing the machine is making a horrible, loud, noise and no water is coming out. The solutions I looked at for no water don't mention this noise - they mention a slight hum. This noise is as loud as a TV turned up almost all the way! This happened during a cycle - the wash ran fine and it got to the rinse and started this.


Answers :

Hi,

If the noise lasts beyond 2 minutes at a time (which it sounds like it does) then you have a motor problem.

I am suspecting that the main seal has leaked onto the motor and is causing water to get into the motor.

Do not use the machine anymore until to you check under the dishwasher.

-Remove the power by turning off the breaker or unplugging the power cord if accessible.

-Remove the screws holding the lower kick panel on and remove that panel

-Look for signs of water on the floor

If you see water stains or water then you need a new pump and motor.

If not let me know and we can go from there
Hi,
\015\012The problem is still the same... the soleniod valve...it can do that sometimes but usually will go to the uhm and not work... however if things go wrong in the right way then you will get the horrible niose you are experiencing...
\015\012
\015\012Here is a tip the will elaborate on your problem more, but the bottom line is that you need to replace that fill valve...

After 3 years it just started making a loud noise, I am no expert but it sounds like a fan in a motor. I have only heard it today, but I am betting it will still happen next load too. I didn't change any of the settings, have been running the same way forever. When I did hear this noise I started pushing buttons to see if I could get it to stop, no good, no change. The cycle has completed and everything looks ok, waiting on the dishes to dry. Drainage has never been a problem for me either.


I would say this is a build up of lime.try changing your tablets and checking your salt levels.there is no fan .try what i say and see what happens.have you found a glass broken it could be as simple as that but i dont think its serious.adrian,,,, ... GE Nautilus 24" Built-in Dishwasher

Both dish drawers emit loud wails ( almost siren like) when started. Repairmen have not figured it out. It happened in the lower dishdrawer first and the impeller was replaced. This did nothing. Now the top drawer makes even louder noise when the wash cycle seems to start.

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.

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

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. It starts to fill with water and then I presume when it starts to wash it makes this grinding loud noise. We have cleaned the filters as recommended in manual.

Loud noise The dishwasher was in the middle of the wash cycle when it started making a loud noise. I turned it off and then restarted it. It began washing fine but in a few minutes it made the noise again. Now it won't do anything. I can't get the water to drain out. It won't even start.

Bosch Shu43C02UC dishwasher fills with water but the washing won't start. As the filling nears complete, a double clicking noise occurs to start the washing motor but nothing happens. The time continues to countdown but the machine is silent. When I open and close the door, the click click noise is heard but the machine is silent.

Kenmore Ultra Wash water supply started making loud noise while water is entering washer. If you turn on sink faucet at the same time the noise will stop.


It sounds like the solenoid valves which let in the water are not fully opening and causing chatter -- probably corroded . Turning the washer-water supply faucets down (to the left) will probably stop it, but the solenoid valves need to be checked. ... Kenmore Dishwashers

Hi. Our DS603I dishwasher starts on the Rinse cycle on its own - it beeps, red light flashing and no water entering the tub. It does this even if it is open. Similarly, when we try to turn it on to do a normal or heavy cycle, it starts (making quiet a loud noise) and then goes to the Rinse cycle, beeping, red light flashing, no water going into the tub. The pump wheel is turning. We can't find any blockages in the tubes. We have power-cycled it many times. Please help!

I have a Tecnik TKD795/3 built in dishwasher. It is now making a gurgling noise as though it is draining water when I try to start the cycle, but the cycle does not start and no lights come on at all. I have tried pressing the outside two buttons to reset, but absolutely nothing happens and the gurgling noise continues until I release the power button. Can you help please?

Hi there, Just moved in to a new place and loaded up this dishwasher. First set it to "normal wash", dry "off", "start". Made noises but after a couple of minutes I heard no water and think I smelled the beginning of something overheating. Think I checked to see if the water was turned on under the sink (turned all the way to the right?). Still nothing but noise. What do you think? Lorraine


Lorraine.. It sounds like the water valve under the washer is stuck or maybe partially shorted. It is a solenoid coil activated shut off valve. The coil may be overheating, and valve not opening.. so motor is running dry. \012If you want to ta ... GE Nautilus 24" Built-in Dishwasher

My ariston lsv 66 dishwasher will not start washing cycle. It makes the pumping noise as it normally does at the start of the cycle and some water enters the bottom of the machine but then it stops. I have checked to make sure that there are no leaks so the problem is with the filling up of the machine. I live in a hard water area and haven't used anything to help reduce the limescale so expect this to be playing a part. I have tried all the washing cycles but the same thing happens. Any advic

Hello, Our kitchenaid DW has stopped working. Non of the buttons cause a any of the lights to turn on. Of course, it will not start. On its last working cycle, it had a very strange washing cycle. It almost sounds like the water was not splashing around (even though I opened it while it was working and noticed water at the bottom). I checked the circuit breaker, and it is not tripped. For a couple of weeks, the DW had started making a kind of metallic noise while in the washing cycle. Also,

I have a Bosch SHU43C06UC/14. A few weeks ago it was making a loud terrible noise during the entire cycle. We figured it was on its last leg but it was still cleaning the dishes properly. Then with no explaination the noise stopped and the machine sounded normal again.

My Siemens dishwasher SL34A sometimes makes loud vibration noises from the supply line at the water pump connection. I can turn off the water and back on it will quit, but sometimes starts again. And it does not matter how open or closed the supply line valve is either. I'm told it is likely the water pump, but this model has a combination water pump/motor assembly and I do not care to put another $230 into it. thx, TS.

I have a Bosch dishwasher, M# SHU3035UC/U12. After the cycle is finished, the water is still on bottom of machine, it doesn't pump it out, so I changed the pump. Now when it washes, it fills and washes, when the timer advances it dies, there is no noise and nothing happens, the only way that I get the machine to pump water is by lifting the red overflow lever. Only then does it pump out the water. what can be my problem?
