Dishwasher making loud humming noise

My dishwasher has suddenly started making a loud humming noise during the first part of the wash cycle. What could this be? Can I fix it?

It only makes this sound the first 10 mins or so.

    Mine makes a loud humming, moaning sound that started when the wash cycle began. 2 months later it makes this obnoxious noise on all cycles but "dry". The unit only seems to make this noise when the pump is working.

    I have the same problem with mine and I think these LG dishwashers are defective. I purchased an LG Dishwasher Model# LDS5811BB on 9/30/07 from Home Depot and installed by Home Depot. Less than 4 months later it was not working properly and the customer support then was great from LG. It was repaired, they had to replace the motor and the control board and worked ok till last month (Jan 09) and then started making a loud humming noise. LG's Owners Manual book says 1 year labor and 2 year coverage for parts. I called the LG Customer Service number and have got nothing but a runaround. 1st Phone call I talk to the customer support person and he tells me to call the authorized repair dealer and schedule a repair. Ok so I call the repair place and they tell me they need a work order number from LG. 2nd phone call to LG same day, sounded like same representative and he says he will send the work order to the repair place. (Next day), I call repair place, no work order. 3rd phone call to LG and still sounded like the same representative from day before, he says my warranty is out, I tell him same thing 1 year labor, 2 years parts. The representative tells me I need to FAX the page from inside LG's own Owners Manual that shows 1 year labor and 2 years parts, a copy of the reciept, and the customer invoice from Home Depot, which I did. 4th Phone call back same day, representative tells me FAX must come from a different department and it may take a day for them to get it and soon as they get it it they will send a work order to the repair place. That was over two weeks ago. On 02/13/09 I called the repair place again and guess what, still no work order number. I guess LG figures if they can delay me till SEP 09 they can really say my warranty is out. I will never purchase another LG product!!

The most common cause of the hum/grinding sound, and often poor cleaning - is a blocked filter or debris stuck below that filter.
Pretty easy fix: Get a phillips screwdriver near by. Pull out the lower rack (the upper rack can come out if you pull the little gray thingeys on the front of the upper rails.)
Remove the lower spray arm -- just pull it straight up. Remove nine silver screws from the sump area that holds the filter down. Pull the filter up and out. Rinse the filter as best you can.
While the filter removed, with a flash light inspect all over the sump area - looking for stuff that should not be there and clean it out. Watch out for broken glass!
Replace the filter, screws and the spray arm. Fire it up and check your results!
Good Luck!

Loud humming just started during wash cycle


Humming can be simply due to a mechanical vibration when the wash pump is running. Alternatively it could be the sound of the detergent door solenoid which might be stuck.
Will need make and model number of dishwasher to give further advise. Does the dishwasher complete the cycle and drain out the water?

My dishwasher is just 6 months old and started making a humming sound while washing in th wash cycle.


If you hear unusual noises during dishwasher operation, check to see if a dish or cup is loose and being knocked around during the wash cycle. If you hear grinding, grating, crunching or a buzzing sound, chances are a hard object has gone into the wash module. Once the object is ground up, the noises should cease.

Very noisy wash cycle


most times i have found a foriegn object in the pump. sometimes the machine will clear it itself but other times you have to take the pump apart. it is not too difficult but you will need a size T15 and T20 Torx aka (star) bit to get it apart. Just keep taking out screws until the filter flowplate lifts off.

Bosch dishwasher timer freezing


There is a recall on the control board of many of these models, butyour problem is likely not related. It sounds like a plugged drain system or a possible bad drain pump. That's why you are hearing the pump running constantly. I have written a guide to help. It is here. Thanks!

Loud humming noise when dishwasher is filling up with water


your model is pretty new. just so you know your warrenty is 1 year parts and labor. 2 years on parts. it should not cost that much money.

there are two components that start before the circulation pump.(wash noise you hear)

first sounds you hear will be the drain pump. usually rattling noises if something is in it but it can make a hum noise if something is jamming the drain propeller up. which is accessible with a T20 torx driver. take the filters out and the mesh filter. and unscrew the screw in the base towards the left. pull out whatever is lodged.

the other humming sound can come from the next component that activates is the watervalve. make sure you dont have a kinked water intake line. otherwise its a bad valve. i have had to change a few of those water valves out already but not for a hum noise on your model. you have a new style water valve. when brands make new parts we get problems fast sometimes..
