Our dishwasher is a Kenmore Ultra 17039 and it has recently started to make a high pitched noise when on the wash cycle. It is still washing but the noise is extremely loud. We cannot find anything loose in the machine.

The dishwasher started making a groaning type noise(fairly high pitched) during the washing cycle only. All else seems normal.Are there pressure valves to control the spraying during washing.


Hi.There is no pressure valve that directly controls spray pressure, the only pressure switch in the dishwasher is used to detect the water level.The groaning noise is usually given by a clogged or malfunctioning impeller pump ... Dishwashers

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.


I have made the assumption that your d/w is a siemens machine, however if not pls repost with the make and model.\015\012There are a few possibities...check the spray arms are clear by removing any blockages in the holes, check that there ... Dishwashers

I have a Bosch SMU2046UC/14 dishwasher that makes some noise but will not start the wash cycle. I found that the noise was from the timer motor by removing the front of the door. The timer continues to run and but only advances until half way through the wash cycle where it stops permanently. Is this a problem with the timer or could something else be causing this problem.


HI. The timer motor mechanism regulates the length of time power is to be routed to each component. If the timer motor does not advance properly, it can result in a wide range of problems. Common symptoms will usually include sticking in a cycle(fail ... Bosch 24 in. SMU40 Built-in Dishwasher

When the water should be filling or rinsing the machine is making a horrible, loud, noise and no water is coming out. The solutions I looked at for no water don't mention this noise - they mention a slight hum. This noise is as loud as a TV turned up almost all the way! This happened during a cycle - the wash ran fine and it got to the rinse and started this.


Hi,If the noise lasts beyond 2 minutes at a time (which it sounds like it does) then you have a motor problem. I am suspecting that the main seal has leaked onto the motor and is causing water to get into the motor. ... Maytag 24 in. MDB4100 Built-in Dishwasher

Noisy dishwasher My Indesit IDL530 occasionally makes a loud, high pitch noise during the wash cycle. The noise will stop when gentle pressure is applied to the outside of the diswasher door around the area of the tablet dispenser. Any suggestions to the cause of the noise?

When starting wash cycle the dishwasher cda cw447 doesnt appear to be getting enough water in and is making a droning / whirring / electrical ? noise. pipes all connected ok inc aquastop water supply unit, no kinks etc. machine 3 1/2 yrs old, just started making this noise. appears to complete rapid cycle but still making unusual sound. water drains away fine from this cycle, dont believe pipes / hoses are blocked.

Dishwasher hums I have a 2003 Kenmore Elite Ultra Wash Dishwasher model #665.17469300. I started the wash today.

My ariston lsv 66 dishwasher will not start washing cycle. It makes the pumping noise as it normally does at the start of the cycle and some water enters the bottom of the machine but then it stops. I have checked to make sure that there are no leaks so the problem is with the filling up of the machine. I live in a hard water area and haven't used anything to help reduce the limescale so expect this to be playing a part. I have tried all the washing cycles but the same thing happens. Any advic

Hi I have a mdb6601awb maytag dishwasher. Sometimes when it starts the wash cycle it will make a loud squelling noise. Then if you pull on the handle and stop it, the machine will start and sometimes the noise will be gone. Or you may have to do this 3 or 4 times before it will stop making the squelling noise. I do notice when I pull up on the handle to stop the machine it makes some clicking noises and then the noise goes away. Thank You for any help you may be able to give me!!!

Our ESD310 has a message of OP on the screen. It will come on and run on its own if the door is shut, counting down from 2. When I can get it to turn on and start a cycle it runs a bit, skips a bunch of time, runs a little more, and then skips time again counting down from 2. The high temp wash button will light up on it's own while running. The cancel button does not work. It acts as if it has a short, makes funny noises, and I'm afraid it's going to catch on fire.

My Maytag Quiet Series 200 is making loud noises. It appears to be continuing the cycle. When we stop and start the washer, it sounds like the motor is working hard (high pitched sound). It sounds serious. I'd like to troubleshoot myself if possible. Also, what is the criteria for an 8 year old washer when it comes to the decision of fix vs buy new?
