Question about Frigidaire 24 in. FDB635RF Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Mine is a FDB635RFS4 model - issue is loud screeching noise

Hi - bought in 2001. very few issues although getting noisy last year or so. Suddenly water in basin, but loud screeching noise, varying pitches when it should be at the spray arm washign stage. Sound like plastic or other material "binding"
Can you suggest what I should look for? Thanks.

    i recently had the same problem of a loud screeching noise. my unit was installed new in 1999 and has worked well up to this point.

    when i disassembled the tub water filter i found the filter was heavily clogged (it is supposed to be self cleaning), and i also found glass shards from a broken wine glass. i further disassembled the plastic housing under the filter ( held in place by three torx drive screws ) which covers the pump impeller and holds the lower spray arm. while i did not find any blockage in the pump area, and no abnormal sound when i turned the impeller by hand, i did find that one of the pump impeller vanes has a small chip which probably makes the impeller unbalanced resulting in more than normal vibration. i cleaned the water filter and reassembled the parts and the original screeching noise is now gone.

Where is the sound coming from and how often do you here it? Does it only make noise when it's running? Check for vibrations or a noisy fan motor.

When i turn my heater on (and also the ac) it makes a loud humming noise. as i turn it higher the noise gets louder. I have a 2001 chevy trailblazer.


It is possible that a stray leaf or piece of debris is stuck in the blower fan blades. This is more likely if the noise began suddenly. You will have to access the blower and remove it to inspect the blades. If their isn't an obvious debris problem, the blower fan bearing may be wearing out and getting noisy; although this noise would slowly get worse and worse every day.

Just bought new pump. My old one lasted for 12 years. New one is 4 months old and recently started to make a loud whine or screeching noise when operating. It works fine but is very loud. I have trouble...


Most likely the bearings on the motor are going out. 4 months is way too soon, but it is possible you got a lemon. Unfortunately I wouldn't expect the new one to last 12 years. It's possible but unlikely. You should however get at least a few years. If the shaft seal on the motor shaft between the impeller and seal plate failed then water can drip back along shaft and get into motor bearings. This will cause motor bearings to fail. Even if this is not the case the motor bearings can fail even though it is rare to do so within first year. I would contact the place you bought the pump from, or whoever installed it. It should have at least a one year warranty. If for whatever reason this motor is not covered under warranty and you have to replace it, I would consider rebuilding it. Normally I don't care for rebuilds, but if the motor is truly only 4 months old then rebuilding it would be a good option.

Dewalt 28v drill/driver making screeching noise


No, this is not normal. Take it back to your retailer and let them know about the problem.

I have a few tools that will get a little noisy and it is cold out - as in lower than 15 degrees - but it goes away as the tool warms up.

Your problem sounds like clearance issues within the drill, and just dealing with the noise could be damaging the tool further.
