Hum in Kitchen Aid Dishwasher Model 8531529. Stated last night. No hum when filling or draining - only during the wash cycle. Can still hear the water spinning inside during the wash cycle, but hum is loud. The water does fill & drain completely/correctly. Any ideas? Might this be an easy fix? or a likely repair man call? Thanks!!


Hi\015\012\015\012The hum sound that you hear is from the motor that is not\015\012working or is about to go out, the motor should be replaced. Hope this\015\012helps...please post back for further assistance.\015\012\015\012Dani ... KitchenAid Dishwashers

My kenmore washing machine fills with water but will not wash..it sounds like its doing something then it stops after a while i hear it drain and then stops again..water doesnt spray..I let the dishwasher run for a while but dishes werent even wet


Often these work by reversing the motor which has two pump impellers. One direction will pump the water out and the other will pump it through the spray bar. IF the one pump impeller has broken then that would explain your symptoms. \015\012 ... Kenmore 24 in. 16193 Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

Kenmore dishwasher fills with hot water but will not wash, just a faint hum. goes through cycle, drains fine, like motor doesn't turn on.


The faint "hum" sound is your wash motor trying to turn on. You either have a piece of glass/tooth pick/ ect.. or a worn out bearing. Its time to change your wash motor. If you do a DIY you can save money over having a service man come out and charg ... Kenmore Dishwashers

My dishwasher 4000 series Model #PLD4375RFC3 isn't working right, when it starts the water runs in than I hear a click like it's trying to start then it doesn't. The timer just keeps counting down it doesn't wash a thing... in order to get the water out I switch to rinse only and it drains the water. What's wrong with it serial # TH91579830.

My Whirlpool dishwasher will wash fine, but when it drains, it's a slow trickle. I've snaked the line from the sink to the washer, but I can't find a clog. If I try to blow into the drain pipe all I accomplish is almost passing out. I can't blow all the way through it. When I hit the drain button, I hear the solenoid kick on with a rattle, then just a hum. Like I said, I just get a trickle, and the basin never drains completely. It's driving me crazy! Help? Thanks.


In the bottom of the dishwasher, there is a screen. Remove it and clean it and the drain underneath it. Make sure the POWER IS OFF before you start. ... Dishwashers

My Frigidaire model FDBB2040FC3 ''acts'' like it starts running when I press start but after just a few moments the Start indicator light goes out and the Hi-Temp Wash and Air Dry lights start flashing... I can hear it ''running'' or doing something but it clearly isn't actually cleaning anything. I've tried cancelling, letting it reset itself and then restarting... even shut it off from the breaker. Each time the problem returns.

I have a kitchenaid dishwasher model kuds24se with a problem. I MUST hit cancel before I hit start. Note that it doesn't matter how long it's been since the last cycle. It could be a few minutes or a day or more. I have to hit start to get a complete wash cycle. If I don't hit cancel, the washer goes through some sort of cycle and stops. It seems like a normal cycle but of course it is not because I don't hear any water and, upon completion, when I open the door there is heat but the soap dispen

My dishwasher has power but does not turn on to any cycle when the control knob is in that position. It was adding water and starting to wash, but not going through the whole cycle and not rinsing and drying. Now it has water stuck in it. I hear sounds underneath like it's trying to go to the next cycle (a clicking noise), but then it doesn't. I put a new timer in it, but it was doing the same thing before that.

I have a GU1500XTLB1, type-575-0 Whirlpool Gold dishwasher. For the last couple of weeks I've been getting the control lock on. I got the manual out, I hold the air dry button and it clears. My problem is now when I turn the machine on dosen't matter which cycle I hit (pots and pans, normal, or quick wash) it runs for about 5 minutes and it goes into a mode with the timer having lines going horizontal with the air dry button lit up and rinse button lit up. It sounds like it starts the cycle

Own a KitchenAid dishwasher, model KDC-21AD. Unit stopped shortly after startup cycle began. When cycling thru the various wash cycles, I hear a slight hum when selector switch is at the "pots/pan" selection. About 2" of water is standing in base of dishwasher and it will not start. Checked the KitchenAid site and they do not list my dishwatcher. Would like to be able to repair myself or have it done at reasonable price.

I have a Bosch dishwasher model SHU9915 that is 8 years old. It just give a ''hum'' when it tries to go into the wash cycle. It stops humming after a few seconds, like it overheats or overloads, then after a minute or so it tries to start the motor again and ''hums''. It continues this as long as you wish to watch it. Does it sound like the pump has gone out or just a capacitor or something small?

Kenmore Elite 665.17053400. Powers up ok, fills up with water ok, but wash cycle won't start. I can hear the motor trying to turn but sounds like its seized up. If I cancel the wash, the machine drains out the water ok. Does this sound like the moter is shot and if so, what should I expect to pay to have it replaced?


This dishwasher has a very sophisticated wash system. In order to improve the wash efficiency it uses a chopper and a soil sensor. It is very likely the chopper assembly is clogged which is blocking the water from circulation and straining the wash m ... Kenmore Dishwashers

Kenmore Dishwasher model 665.1675592 doesn't seem to wash as well as it used to. Seems to have a low water level. Filler valve works, allows water in, but never seems to fill enough. No spray reaches top shelf, I think due to insufficient water level. It's like the timer doesn't stay on long enough for it to fill. Also cycle time seems WAY up, but if the timer is slow, how does it time out filling so fast? Looks like it would be slow all the time. Suggestions?

I am a licensed plumber who installed a frigidaire fdb1o5rem1 dishwasher for a customer about 2 years ago. It has water to the solenoid valve and the screen is clean. I can see water coming in to the unit on left side through the port hole on the inside of the unit. Dishes do not get clean and it doesnt act like water is being distrubuted inside the dishwasher. Soap never gets washed away from door. Dishwasher makes funny sound in mid cycle like the pump is not running in wash cycle. Discharge p

My sound conditioned Whirlpool dishwasher is real old. It fills up completely with water. It looks like it will overflow, so I stop it. I thought it always started washing from the start. Do they always fill completely up with water, then start washing. I never noticed. I am afraid the water will overflow. Can it? Last time I ran this, it had a real loud motor. I used to hear the motor running from the start, but now I don't, just water filling up to what looks like overflow if I let it. I baile
