Question about Jenn-Air JDB6510 Built-in Dishwasher
It sounds like there is something lodged down somewhere in my dishwasher as it is making a loud buzzing sound when it the arm is turning while washing, the dishes are clean, it is still working, but can i fix this myself, will i damage the machine by running it?
I had the same problem with by Kemore Ultrawash after two years. The motor bearing went bad because the seal went out and dish water got to the bearing. If you are handy, this motor comes out after taking the dishwasher out. I was surprised how easily the motor came apart from the dishwasher, a good design. The motor has three screws that holds it together, I took them out and took the motor apart.
I took the old beaing off the shaft with a grinder, careful not to groove the motor shaft. I did, but just put some high temp silicone caulk in the groove before I put the new bearing on the shaft. I bought a new bearing on the internet, it is a 22mm x 8mm x 7mm. I bought one that went in a small engine, a quality one. I placed it on the shaft, put the motor back together and put the dishwasher back together. It has run quiet and great for many weeks now. I expect the dishwasher may last many years now, because the bearing I took out was a cheap aftermarket one, and the new one is vastly superior in quality.
Good luck and fire away with any questions. I love this dishwasher and am glad I could fix it for 19$ and some of my time.

Several sites on the Internet suggest doing some basic disassembly on the inside bottom of the dishwasher to locate and remove fragments that may be interfering with the cutter blade of the built-in chopper. Much like a garbage disposal, most dishwashers chops up larger waste particles to be able to flush them down the drain.
I have a 2-year old Kenmore and followed these directions to locate and remove a tooth pick as well as some plastic/alumimum fragment of a medicine pill tablet. Unfortunately in my case this did not resolve the noise issue. Having found these 2 fragments I didn't investigate further and reassembled the 4-5 pieces I removed. All together it took me about 20 minutes to do this. I am leery to call-in a service professional as the dishwasher is working, albeit a noisy.
