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

I have a MDBH945AWW that is just over one year old. It has just started making a various new noises. Grinding, loud buzzing and such. Still cleaned the dishes and completed the full cycle. I followed the solution that bgreenatown gave for removing obstacles. Found some soft material but did not seem that it would cause an obstruction. Removed it and put it back together but it is still making noises. Any next steps?

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

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. This url (http://www.applianceaid.com/maytag-dish-noise.html) describes my problem exactly but I can't remove this part. 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 newer model GE dishwasher. About a couple of weeks ago we lost power to home. When power was returned the dishwasher was making a high pitch sound and power was not returned to the front display. I had to remove a black/white wire from front of the display to make the high pitch sound go away. Do you have any solutions to make the high pitch so go away and for power to be restored to the front display? Thank you.

Hello\015\012\015\012High pitch sound comes when the main control also known as the electronic board goes bad and needs replacement.

The dishwasher started making horrendous noises. I removed the bottom panel and narrowed the noise down to the motor (the noise starts and stops when the motor kicks on and off). How do I remove the motor to visually check it out? I thought I had all of the screws removed, but it feels like something is still holding it in place. thanks My model number is GSD4060N10SS (GE Dishwasher)

I have a three year old Whirlpool Dishwasher DU1148XTP which is making a load flickering noise when it release the soap during the wash cycle.

Had my Maytag dishwasher for just over 2 years. Lately is has been making a loud grinding/vibrating noise - like something is stuck. I actually pulled out a piece of a plastic twist tie or something and thought I had solved the problem. Worked like a charm for a couple of days and suddenly the sound is back - and worse! I've read here that you should remove the bottom piece and make sure nothing is stuck before calling service. I'm the woman that's going to do this and could use some guidance ..

Bosch dishwasher SHX46A05UC/40 is making noise when draining. I have cleaned the screen and hose back to the drain and removed all debris. So it seem to be the 'drain pump'. But replacing it - now that seem complex - is it? Looks like I would have to stand the DW on its head and remove the base and then replace the pump. Anyone know if I am on the right track? Could it be something else?

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.

Since then the lights are on but wont go regardless of where the switch is set to. Have pulled the pump off and the inlet pipes and blown to remove any blockage but still no luck. Cant get into the water jet part due to connectors that require specfic tools to remove and replace. Any thoughts?? thanks in advance, Michael

When I replaced my garbage disposal I forgot to remove the knockout tab that would have allowed my my bosch SHE58C05UC dishwasher to drain into the disposal. I discovered my error the first time I ran my dishwasher and discovered that none of the water had drained. I then removed the knockput plug and reattached the drain line.

My sink got clogged and now my bosch dishwasher SHU43C05UC wont fill with water. I read on line that it most likely is the float is stuck and to access the front kickplate needs to be removed.

This happened once before and the technician people gave me a way to restart the dishwasher by pressing certain buttons - I can't remember which ones. Does anyone know??? I need help!!
