Dishwasher not starting

Dishwasher fills and i hear the motor wanting to run (buzzing of motor) but it doesn't start spraying. since i hear the motor does this mean that it's probably jammed and not seized? Can i clear it myself? I'm not an appliance repairman but am mechanically inclined.

Whirlpool dishwasher wont wash


if the bottom tub is filling with water but not washing the issues is with the wash motor, some of this model use a start capacitor that can fail, if it has a capacitor on the side of the motor it may have failed but are difficult to diagnose but are cheap to replace so worth trying, if this doesn't help or if it doesn't have a capacitor then the fault is with the wash motor.

There is a loud noise while going through final stages of wash. Sounds like pump motor whineing.


Hello

When an appliance such as a dishwasher starts making a new noise, you need to isolate the cause of the noise so that you know whether or not it is damaging the machine. Several things can cause a noisy dishwasher.

Motor

Dishwashers are driven by an internal motor that gets quite noisy when defective. The problem occurs when a seal breaks down and allows water to access the bearings in the motor, removing the grease needed for proper lubrication and creating a loud motor noise when the dishwasher runs. The seal or bearings need to be replaced in this situation quickly or more extensive damage to the motor may occur.

Inlet Valve

If the inlet valve on your dishwasher is broken or breaking, you will hear a distinctive thumping or clattering noise whenever a load is run. A thumping noise doesn't always indicate this problem, however, depending on when you hear it. If you hear a noise like this when the water is filling up the dishwasher at the start of the cycle, the noise likely points to an inlet valve problem.

Squealing

A high-pitched squealing noise is an indication that something is wrong with the fan. Fan bearings that are worn out indicate that the fan apparatus needs to be replaced. If the noise you're hearing is in fact coming from the fan, it will only occur when the dishwasher is drying the dishes. Dishwashers use a fan to generate and distribute heat to dry the dishes quickly.

Minor Concerns

Sometimes even a minor concern can cause a great deal of noise. The thing to watch for is whether or not the noise repeats itself on multiple loads. A loud noise on a single load that doesn't repeat could be caused by things like a loose utensil or small implement rattling around loose in the dishwasher. Also inspect the bottom of your dishwasher. Hardened bits of old food can become rock hard under the heat in the dishwasher and cause noise when the unit runs.

After my dishwasher fills with water, and starts to run, the motor is making alot of noise. Its loud and I'm afarid to run it. Could the motor be bad?


Hello & Welcome to FixYa
If you hear a loud hum/buzz sound from the bottom of the unit then it is the motor that is bad and if the hum comes from the control then it is the timer/electronic control that is bad and needs replacement. However, after reading your question I believe it is the motor that needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

My dishwasher starts fills water and never starts wash cycle?


If you hear a hum when it should be washing, the motor has seized. Replace motor. If it fills with water and stops quite, run it through a test using the tech sheet under the bottom panel to access. These dishwasher have had issues with the motor.

My dishwasher has water going in to it and it drains but it's not making it to the arms, my dishes are still bone dry after all cycles even pre rinse.


it appears ur wash motor is not running.try this-start the unit and let it run for 2 min( this is the water fill period) and after 2 mins u should hear motor running and water splashing sound.u can even open the door and look for water falling from the spray arms.but after 2 mins if u hear only a humming sound and no water splash sound then motor is bad and needs to be chgd.drain motor is seperate for draining the water.

Diswaher fills with water and then I hear a buzzing sound on the capacitor next to the motor. The motor does not turn on to spay in the dishwasher.


Hi tonyh514,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: Diswaher fills with water and then you hear a buzzing sound on the capacitor next to the motor. The motor does not turn on to spay in the dishwasher.

Sorry, it sounds like the motor's starting capacitor has failed. The unit must be removed from the cabinet to allow for easy access. With some models you can change it out, others you change both the capacitor and motor. I don't recomend this repair to the average homeowner. You might consider the Repair Directory for a repairman.

Dishwasher not working


Nothing by the sound of it. The humming may mean the main pump is stuck. If you are able, remove the pump & turn the impellor by hand (or screwdriver) just to make sure its free moving. Put it back into machine & see what you get. Could also mean that the capacitor on the main pump (if it is a capacitor start motor) has failed.
