Can you tell where in the unit the buzzing is coming from (top bottom inside outside, etc)? Need a little more information to help.

SOURCE: kenmore elite dishwasher making loud buzzing sound when washing

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.

SOURCE: ONCE THE DISHWASHING CYCLE BEGINS, A LOUD,

Hi.

Problem is likely a jammed impeller pump. The repair is done accessing the hose connected to the impeller pump and removing blockage. In some case the pump is broken and it is necessary to replace the pump.

Before testing anything else ensure that power is off. also rotate manually the spray arm and ensure that this are free to rotate and are not hitting baskets and other parts.

To find parts and diagrams try entering the full model number (as from service tag) in the websites listed at the link below:

Enter the model number ...

The freezer is defrosting and the refrigerator is warming. the compressor is kicking on approximately every three minutes and is making a loud buzzing sound when it kicks on. is my compressor shot?


Probably not. The compressors are very sturdy and long lasting. The compressor is controlled by a start relay, and is protected by a thermal overload. It sounds like your start relay is bad, which would explain the buzzing sound. It takes a certain amount of time to cool down, and then tries to start again. The start capacitor and start relay should be replaced.

I woke up to a loud buzzing sound from the freezer side, behind the automatic ice maker. Sounds like a fan? Model LRSC 26941SW.


Hi,
This is common. Unplug it or turn off the circuit breaker for a full 5 minutes. Then plug-in and follow instructions. Things will be good


Good luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Every 3-4 minutes the a very loud buzzing sound occurs for ~20 seconds. It sounds like it is coming from the compressor area. The fridge and freezer are both working well.


It sounds like the starting components on your compressor are bad. the buzzing is your compressor trying to start and then shutting down on its overload. You will need to replace your starting components on the side of the compressor (start relay and overload) which will usually come in a kit together. Good luck _MJ_

Came home from a road trip and our GE Profile refrigerator was and still is, making a horrible buzzing sound. the freezer door was slightly ajar and the freezer temperature was 43 degrees. It's slowly...


Unplug it now and defrost contact me after you get that done. Because the door was open the refrigerator possibly missed some defrost and the control board is confused. Let me know, Thanks Sea Breeze

Loud Buzzing noise


Sounds like the fan is hitting some ice build-up. If you can access the area of the fan motor you can try a hair dryer to defrost the ice out of it.

Loud periodic buzzing


Are you sure this noise is not just the ice maker trying to cycle without water? If it is not turned off it will dry cycle every 15 min or so.
