Loud humming noise coming from bi-metal switch or wax motor attached to the detergent cup assembly. I just replaced detergent cup assembly including the wax motor and I still get a loud vibrating humm from the actuator. model number du1055xtp3

I believe the loud humming you describe is an electronic problem. And is not worth changing parts randomly and spending unnecessary funds in this fashion!
my advice is a hands on experience repair person that does this day in and day out!
Whirl pool units have many variables! and for the price of randomly changing two or three parts you could have a certified tech finished the repair at a lesser cost to you!
Unfortunately i can not be there hands on or I would be happy to do a hands on diagnoses for you.

Ps. Let me know the end result and which electronic part was the culprit..
Thank you

If the old dispenser relay was melted or damaged replace control bd the power for the dispenser relay comes from main control and should only be at dispenser when called for in wash cycle ..the control bd is keeping the relay energized too long causing melt down

I have a Bosch SHY66 dishwasher. The detergent cup will not open. The rinse injector stoped working a long time ago. I removed the outer door and the mechanism for the detergent cup and rinse injector is exposed. I see a clear fluid inside. How can I determine if the detergent cup mechanism has failed or if it is a failure of the control signal? How can I remove the detergent cup assembly? I am willing to buy the service manual if you now where to find it. Thank you, Bruce O'Reilly

LG dishwasher LDS4821BB just started making a new grinding sound while washing. No similar sounds while filling or draining, so I wouldn't think it is the motor assembly like many answers suggest. We installed it March 2009. This sound may be similar to one which led to the motor assembly being replaced while still under warranty about nine months ago. Unfortunately, the LG repairman was too hard of hearing to be able to diagnose that replacement, so he did it based on our description of

I have a Kenmore diswasher model 587 1525. I can hear the water filling and rinsing, but during the wash cycle I do not hear the motor. At the end of the wash cycle and when I open the door I see the detergent tablet is sitting on the floor. The dishes are not cleaned. Does this mean that the motor has failed or is it the control card. I can hear some clicking noise while the motor should be running. Maybe solenoids cycling.

When I started it, it made a loud grinding sound which continued whenever it was actually washing/rinsing. It was washing and rinsing the dishes ok. Eventually I didn't hear anymore grinding but the dishes had not been washed or rinsed. The detergent cup was open and the detergent spilled down the door. I ran it again and could hear the pump running. It ran through the cycles but the water was not being circulated. I suspect that something is caught in the disposer blade or something and is bloc

The little actuator type motor in the dispenser goes off buzzing like crazy and its random. This motor is used to open the dispenser door.
