Answers :

It could be the impeller on the motor. The impeller fits over the shaft of the motor and might have split/broken up. That funny noise is probably the shaft spinning inside the damage impeller. Fortunately the impeler is fairly inexpensive and easy to replace. I believe there are one or two parts/covers to remove that are held in by a roughly half dozen torx screws.
I just had a very simialar problem with a noisy wash cycle. Fearing something had broken I had removed pieces to access the impeller to find everything was in one piece?! I kept looking inside until I found a small rusting pin (from some cheap utensil probably) near the drain hole. After the pin was removed and everything was put back together - everything worked fine. My guess is that the metal pin was being forced toward the food prop - couldn't pass through so the prop was being jammed instead. I ran several rinse cycles before reloading just in case.

My KitchenAid dishwasher (model KUD101TJWH0) suddenly is making noise from the motor area while inputing water into the unit, whether in the rinse or washing cycles but makes no noise in the draining cycles. I have pulled the unit out while still connected, cleaned any debris from the filter screen below the lower water spokes and can hear the noise very plainly by the motor but I know how sound can travel with the piping. Is the sound only coming from the electric drive motor attached to the

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

Makes rumbling noise during wash cycle. I've pulled the pump and found no debris. It's been making this noise for about a year now. No problems with our dishes getting washed. Do you think the bearings inside the motor may be bad? If so, would I need to replace the motor and pump assembly?

I have a Kenmore diswasher model 587 1525. I can hear the water filling and rinsing, but during the wash cycle I do not hear the motor. At the end of the wash cycle and when I open the door I see the detergent tablet is sitting on the floor. The dishes are not cleaned. Does this mean that the motor has failed or is it the control card. I can hear some clicking noise while the motor should be running. Maybe solenoids cycling.

I have a Maytag MDB7100AWW dishwasher that makes a lot of noise from the motor at the end of the drain cycle. When there is water in the dishwasher it doesn't make any noise and washes well.

I have unscrewed the 3 screws keeping it in place but it seems to be still attached to the motor. How can I remove it?

I have a Bosch SMU2046UC/14 dishwasher that makes some noise but will not start the wash cycle. I found that the noise was from the timer motor by removing the front of the door. The timer continues to run and but only advances until half way through the wash cycle where it stops permanently. Is this a problem with the timer or could something else be causing this problem.

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.

I have a Maytag MDBH945AWS dishwasher that makes loud noises when running through the wash cycle. When first purchased the DW was whisper quiet. At about 6 months it was noticeably louder. Then just recently it alternates between clicking (sounds like the soft food disposer), loud vibrating hum, and the medium loud hum that has been steadily increasing. I've disassembled it down to the motor and haven't found the problem. No obvious abrasion from parts interference. Nothing in the pump ass

... KitchenAid KUDS01FKSS Dishwasher

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.
