Having problems with your Maytag MDBH945AWW / MDBH945AWQ / MDBH945AWB Built-in Dishwasher ?

Dishwasher makes a loud grinding noise when running.

\015 I believe a chip off a bowl has been sucked into the food grinding apparatus of the dishwasher and is now trying to be ground up. I believe I need to gain access to the grinder portion and pull the chip out but am not sure how to go about this.\015

Answers :

Start by pulling out the lower rack. Then pull the nut off the top of the lower spray arm. then remove all of the visible hex head screws. lift up on this section. this should expose another level of hex head screws, then they should be removed and this section should be lifted up. once you reach the chopper blade, remove the obstruction, and put back together.
I had this same problem with this dishwasher - I took it all apart and never found anything but after i put it all back together it doesn't make that noise anymore.

I had taken the inside apart then tipped it over and took apart the drainage compartment - found nothing so i put it back together.

I then popped out the dishwasher motor by accident when I had the washer on it's side. I didn't find anything there either.

I never found the internal chopping blade (food grinder), as I thought that something was stuck in the blade causing the problem.

I did wash everything off before I put it back together.

I am happy now that it doesn't make that terrible grinding noise - I thought I was ruining it by running it so I have been doing dishes by hand for the past 6 months.

FGHD2433KB1 noise Several months after we bought this product it started making a loud grinding noise during the ENTIRE wash cycle. Our family room is next to the kitchen and the noise is so loud we can't even watch TV while the dishwasher is running. We have to talk more loudly than usual if we're in the kitchen. What could be causing this?

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.

Hello, I have an LG-2120WHU and it has been making strange loud noises when washing for some time now. Then I tried running some anti-lime through a washing program and gradually, after several washes, it seemed to lessen the noise, but yesterday the dishwasher suddenly made a very loud noise and the I decided to try a special cleaning liquid from Neophos. Strangely it seemed as if the loud noises would slowly diminish, but in stead loud sqeaking noises started to appear and after I had run th

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

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

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.

My Bosch dishwasher, model SHX46A05UC/30 has been working fine. I ran it once today on the Power Scrub Plus cycle (always use this one). Shortly after unloading the dishwasher I needed to run it again with more dishes. Within a few minutes of running the dishwasher I heard loud, almost grinding noises. Nothing appears to be stuck. Any ideas on what to do? This dishwasher has always been quiet up until today.

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)

The dishwasher makes a horribly loud sound when running. I think it has to do with the lower "spinner arm". When I push it manually, it wobbles and makes noise. So I am guessing that spinning at higher speeds would cause much more noise. Can I fix it?

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

I just moved into a house that has a Maytag Quiet 300 dishwasher. After about 2 weeks, I'm hearing a VERY loud, almost grinding noise about 6-7 minutes into the wash cycle, then again near the end of the wash cycle. It sounds like a motor thing and I'm hoping to avoid a repair bill right now, the cost of the move wiped us out. Is this something that I can fix, and if not, will continuing to run the dishwasher with the noise kill it?
