GU1500XTL loud humming sound during the cycle, getting louder

\015 Our Whirlpool Gold GU1500XTL works ok, but recently has been VERY loud during the cycle. If I press cancel, the draining of the water sounds normal, but during the cycle there is a loud humming sound that has steadily gotten louder over the last week. Any ideas?\015

Answers :

The run capacitor on the main wash motor needs replacing. Eventually it will just hum and overheat instead of rotating, so better replace it now before it overheats.

\015\012I doubt you can acces it easily yourself, as it may be away from the motor, and have to be tracked down.

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

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.

GE 18" dishwasher getting VERY loud. Well over 100db. Is this a sign it is dying or can I get it fixed? It has gotten louder in the last year. It still washes about the same but sounds as if it is on its last legs. Is this something you are aware of and is a serviceable issue / parts or is it fatal?


May not be fatal. Could just need a new motor. ... Dishwashers

FDB750RCC1 When I start the DW, the motor hums loud then soft then loud then soft...if I advance the dial some sections of the cycle nothing will be running and others the motor is on, but no water is getting into the unit. I just replaced the inlet valve and solenoid and that didn't change anything. I can see water in the recirculating pipe running up the unit, but it will just try to make it up and fall back down.

It still has bubbles at end of cycle in the bottom and doesn't clean the dishes well anymore.

After 3 years it just started making a loud noise, I am no expert but it sounds like a fan in a motor. I have only heard it today, but I am betting it will still happen next load too. I didn't change any of the settings, have been running the same way forever. When I did hear this noise I started pushing buttons to see if I could get it to stop, no good, no change. The cycle has completed and everything looks ok, waiting on the dishes to dry. Drainage has never been a problem for me either.

So, it was working fine for 4 years. Then last week it started getting louder after the initial fill cycle. Now, all it does is fill the bottom with water, clicks (where the motor used to kick in), then just hums. Nothing happens, but when I hit the cancel button, it empties the water from the bottom. Any ideas?
