Noisy pump This is supposedly the quietest washing machine. It is until the pump comes into operation. It pumps incessantly for up to ten minutes before the spin operates and it is extremely noisy. I have had an Hotpoint engineer visit and he brusquely said that this is normal. I wouldn't have purchased it if I had known this. My previous Zanussi was much better. Was the engineer correct?


It depends on the design, the way it is mounted on the machine matters a lot.Sometimes pump makes noise due air trapping. Check your water flow. Add 10 liters of water in the chamber direct and close the door. start the machine in usual w ... Dishwashers

I have an LG ldf7811st dishwasher. My bottom arm spins with water, my middle arm does not spin but does have water coming out, and my top arm doesn't spin or have water. I have just finished taking apart the arms, the supply to the upper arms, the filters and the impeller. I cleaned everything and nothing really seemed clogged. I have tested it since and it still has the same problem. I know that they aren't spinning because i placed them in a certain position before i ran the test run. They


I'm thinking like you're thinking, that it's something affecting the water pressure, but you've done everything in the upper section, so the problem must be from below, unless you have a leak somewhere you haven't noticed and are losing pressure beca ...

We have the Model DD605 ss dishdrawer. We have been getting an F2 message with beeping on the upper drawer. The bottom drawer still seems to be working. We have checked the top and bottom impellers and they appear to spin freely. What else could be the problem. Thanks, Brian

I have a kitchenaid Model KUDW03CTBL2 dishwasher. It is pumping water, but the top sprayer and the one under the top rack just have a little water coming out. Not enough to make them spin. We also noticed the water in the bottom when opened is not as much and it is cool not hot. The dishes on the top rack will not clean, and the bottom is not completely clean. We have checked water pressure and water tempurature through the house, All is operating fine. This dishwasher is only 1 year and 10month

The bottom spray arm on our LG dishwasher, Model LD-14AW3, will not spin. The diverter valve from top to bottom section does not operate, i cleaned it and the housing near the filter but still no go. any ideas? cheers, Dave


I have the same problem, well - similar. The diverter is moving for me, however it is moving to the wrong position. It seems to move between the upper arm and then blocking off, rather than upper arm and then lower arm.Did you manage to find a ... LG Dishwashers

Maytag diswasher MDB6600AWW Sprayer arms don't spin. Dishwasher makes all the right noises, except for spraying. Water fills properly and heats up. Water drains properly. Found paper on the back of access panel. Ran Manual Function and Field Service tests, no problems indicated. Disassembled all the pieces inside the bottom of the dishwasher. No obviously damaged parts. Shaft for motor turns freely. It seems like the parts that attach from the impeller to the motor shaft don't

I have a integral dishwasher (diplomat adp8352) which fills with water but the impeller at the bottom does not spin round or pumps water, it just makes a humming noise and shuts off after a while? any ideas?

It could be as simple as something just poking out of the pipe from the filter to the impellor, big enough to get through the filter, but not big enough to be moved out by the impellor, remove the filter, and the impellor, and poke something through ...

Have a dd603 with an issue...took off the arm and the metal silver disk (the ones with holes) to get to the wash impeller-(the thing with blue blades) the wash impeller will not spin-which I think is part of my problem, since i looked at the lower drawer and was able to spin the blue blades easily...was also able to pull it right out. Cant pull out the upper wash impeller!!!! Really want to get this fixed before my husband gets home and I get the lecture about how I purchased a cool looking d

My 14 yr old Magic Chef Model DU4K seems to be leaking (it is dripping into the basement just under where the dishwasher is located). it started when the arm at the bottom of the dishwasher did not seem to be moving so my husband took off the bottom "grill" to see if maybe there was something under there preventing it from spinning. It started to leak when he put it all back together (the bottom arm is still not spinning)


Being 14 years old I dought if spares are still available for this machine personally at 14 I would rather replace the unit if you are not in a possition to replace it you could advise from your local appliance repairs as to weather parts are availab ... Dishwashers

Recently our GU1100XTLQ1 started having a problem. It barely cleans the bottom rack, and barely gets top rack wet. The soap stays stuck in the dispenser. I can't see inside as it runs, but my guess is that not enough water is being shot out of the various spinning arms. From looking at diagrams it would appear that this dishwasher uses a pump to circulate water from the bottom of the cavity through the spinning arms. Is my problem a dying pump?

Two drawer dish washer ... Both drawers drain fine when operated individually but the top drawer will not drain fully if the bottom drawer is operated at the same time (bottom drawer drains fine in these conditions). I am guessing that this is a setting issue rather than a clog, but what is the mechanism that is tripped when both drawers are cleaning? Perhaps a mother board issue?

Hi, I have a Kenmore 15879 that is basically working except the bottom water spinner...lol (don't know technical name). The dishwasher pumps the water into the bottom of the dishwasher, will heat the water, but not disperse the water in the spinning sprinkler manner it's suposed to. I've opened the dishwasher in time to see that water is spurting out of the holes about 2" high, but it's just not spinning. The water also drains just fine after the whole cycle.


This is caused by the impeller being clogged or the pump is failing, When the pump is woring properly the water will shoot out with force. ... Kenmore 15879 Built-in Dishwasher

The top and bottom spray arms were not rotating. We assumed there was a fault with the pump. We replaced the pump. The bottom arm now spins and sprays water but the top arm will spray water but does not spin.


Hi\015\012\015\012Please check if something is blocked near the top spray arm, also make sure that all holes are oopen. Use a sharp metal pin to clean the holes on the top spray arm. Make sure the water pressure is not low. \015\012 ... Dishwashers

I have a three-year-old Sears Kenmore Elite dishwasher. I find that despite the fact that we scrape and rinse our dishes before loading the machine, after each three months of use (two loads a day) or so, I have to take the machine apart (spray tower, racks, bottom impeller, bottom screen housing, food grinder cover) and clean-out the food grinder area, for it fills-up with sludge. The sludge restricts the water flow and there isn't enough flow to turn the impellers via that steering jets.


Have you tried different detergents? Some detergents after getting wet and going through the wash cycle with the debris from the wash turns into a grease substance that grimes up in some dishwashers. Try running the machine with hot water this someti ... Dishwashers

Kenmore 17362 dishwasher was making a bad noise and now the motor seems to be locked up. I might have already un-jammed the motor by removing the cover on the bottom (inside), and turning the knife impeller on the outside of the screen, but I can see lint type material in the hole on the other side of the impeller. Hard to explain, but it is in the hole in the center of the unit and there is a screen like the knife impeller has behind it. I could clean this lint if I could get the door off. How
