Having problems with your Whirlpool 24 in. DU1055XTPS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher ?

Loud continuous buzzing noise while dishwasher is running

\015 My Whirlpool DU1055XTPS makes a horrible contiuous buzzing noise through most of the wash cycle. Although it does change in pitch and frequency during drain, wash and fill, it never really goes away. It sounds like it is coming either from the control panel or the left side, but I cannot be sure. It does not sound like an obstruction in the pump or motor, but rather more like an electrical resistance sound. It does not sound like a warning buzzer, but maybe it could be one that is vibratign at an unusual frequency. There are no error lights, and the washer goes through all of its cycles appropriately, but the noise is defening. Please tell me what to look for or how to diagnose this problem.\015\012Thank you,\015\012Charles\015

Answers :

Hi hope you are well have you checked that the dishwasher isnt touching your units either side their should be a slight gap either side you will get this noise if it is touching anything at the sides or pressed up against something at the back if this is not the problem.
\015\012If it is making the noise through most of the wash cycle the the chances are it isnt going to be a pump on the way out the only other thing it could be is the motor that turns the spray arms around and it could be either the top or bottom usually if you can get to the motors you can oil the moving parts as sometimes thse get dry over time.
\015\012Try the first sollution first try moving the dishwasher a bit and then try it again if still noisy then the chances are one of the motors has got noisy on the spray arms it wouldnt be the pumps as the noise continues through most of the wash.
\015\012Some times just moving the dishwasher will recitfy the problem as the same happens with fridges and freezers if it has been knocked and is not level or is touching a unit you will get a slight vibrating noise so try moving it a bit.

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?

Hello, I have an LG-2120WHU and it has been making strange loud noises when washing for some time now.

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.

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.

Noisy dishwasher my Kenmore quietguard 4 has developed an exceptionally loud hum/buzzing noise seemingly coming from the door of the dishwasher, when closed, locked and put on either drain or wash cycle.If the unit is allowed to sit for 1-2 days, the drain cycle will empty the tub without the buzzing noise starting. If anything else is attempted afterwards, like a wash cycle, the noise immediatley starts at a low level, then becomes steadily louder, until the full volume is reached, and does not

Made funny noise; stopped to investigate; then wouldn't restart; followed directions below from FixYa and restarted. It finished the cycle, apparently correctly, except it left a little water in the tub. Also, continued to make a lot of noise--a loud motor hum/buzz or similar. Did not make this noise during dry cycle. Dishwasher is Kenmore Model 665; stock number 16839. Can you give continued diagnostic instructions? Appears there is a cracked washer under the lower wand assembly; th

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

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 have a Bosch SHX46A05UC14 dishwasher. The dishwasher is in a new home I just purchased. I tried to run the dishwasher on a normal cycle. However, when I push POWER and NORMAL CYCLE it makes a buzzing noise...and that's it. I opened the dishwasher and on the base of the dishwasher there was a screen that could be removed. I noticed that there was still some anti-freeze fluid in there (because the house was winterized). Could there be a simple solution to this problem?

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
