Hi. My guess is that it's the upper arm hitting something then! If it started suddenly I'd check that the upper bar attachment hasn't been dislodged from its proper location on the upper basket, and that the spraybar retaining nut hasn't come loose.

It happens on my machine all the time as the upper arm assembly has worn loose on the upper basket, AND the spraybar is worn where it attached to the static part so the whole thing wobbles as it goes round. An additional washer under the spraybar retaining nut might tighten it up a bit.

Hope this helps you a bit. If it does, a "Fixya" rating would be much appreciated. If it doesn't help you, I'd be grateful if you didn't bother with a rating at all. Cheers, D

Dishwasher is making a loud noise


Sounds like there is something in the filter trap that is right before the mini disposal that is a fan blade, on top of the motor.

My Kenmore refrigerator is making a loud noise when running and when it shuts off it makes a loud clunking noise. Also, it is running about every 10 minutes. The refrigerator is 7 years old.


it sounds like the compressor insides are loose and you will be needing a new compressor, but just check and make sure the rubber mounting feet on the outer compressor base where its mounted to the refrigerator base are all tight and the rubber shocks are all good

Our new LG dishwasher makes loud clunking noise


I believe this is a brand new dishwasher. Please listen carefully to determine of the sound you hear (clunk) is being made inside the dishwasher or is it being made near by. Most times, the problem is that the hot water pipe is baking the noise when the dishwasher closes the water inlet valve ... and the pipe goes "clunk"
I have not had an LG dishwasher make a clunking sound inside itself when the cycle changes. Also, because this dishwasher is so very quiet (well insulated) the pipe banging would be louder than something inside the Dishwasher.
If you have access to the hot water pipe, listen very near it when the cycle changes for the sound. Follow that pipe (hot water) pipe back and insulate it at the point it is banging. (or get a plumber to evaluate and resolve.)
Please get back to me with what you find, OK?
Good Luck!

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!

Noise when running


UPDATE, I took the dishwasher apart (lower filter and strainer area, below lower spinner arm) and voila there it was, 2-3 pieces of plastic actually more like the broken corners off some reuseable containers and some unpopped popcorn seeds. Once I took these out and reassembled it was the test drive...everything was back to normal, no more forcing/ grinding sounds. Relatively simple tear down and reassembly if you have toric bits (5 star). Maybe I was lucky or maybe it's fixed, either way the noise is gone for me. If you do it you might want to do it after a wash/dry cycle and tear down when the plastic is still warm (plastic gets briddle with age, heat and detergent. Good Luck

Strange noise from my Bosch Dishwasher SHU66C02UC/14


It just the pump noise. Since your dishwasher works properly you can ignore this noise.

Noise at end of drain cycle.


There aren't really all that many energetically moving parts inside a dishwasher - fewer still that are active during the drain cycle. Follow the drain hose into the machine, and you should come upon the drain pump. Have a look inside that, and in the hose that runs between it and the sump it drains. My best guess is that some piece of buoyant debris is sitting in that line, and, as the water level drops, is lowered into the pump impellor. Usual warnings about disconnecting power before putting your hands inside the machine apply - and be aware that you're likely to find a bit of dirty water sitting around in the pump. A.
