Lg dishwasher LDF model one week old makes a lot of noise
When first cycle runs sometimes it sounds like a moaning noise but not every time we use it. the display on the top has the 2H displayed but this is not in the owners book? almost sounds like its trying to overcome something or is not getting enough water?? any ideas

Re: lg dishwasher LDF model one week old makes a lot of...
Not real sure about the 2H display , I'm inclined to believe it is showing the estimated time for the cycle. As far as the noise, I believe you are on the right track with the water theory, but without hearing it myself I'm not real sure. If it is in the very beginning of the cycle most dishwashers start the cycle with a drain or initial pump out cycle. This is designed to remove any leftover water etc from any previous cycle. Depending on how much water is left over it can make different sounds at the beginning of the cycle. If you have had the unit installed for a while, depending on water conditions(hardness,sediment silt etc.) it is possible that the screen on the inlet valve is clogged or your house water pressure to the valve may not be high enough to completely open the valve. It can be a little tricky to check these yourself, but you would have to turn off the water to the dishwasher check the screen in the valve and then check to see if you have enough water pressure and volume . If you have times when your water pressure might be lower(like when I am filling our koi pond at my house) the water pressure in the rest of my house is lower. At those times it might make some wierd noises while it is filling or might not fill to the proper level. I think I would check on those things before digging into disconnecting water lines and checking screens and stuff. Good Luck and reply back if you have more info that might help us narrow it down for you!

I had the same issue with my LG it has a stainless steel impeller the grinds up the food particles and if one of the veins get slightly bent it causes that problem. The tack took it out straightened it out until the new part arrived and it worked fine. He did return to replace it but I don't think it was needed
it's probably your pump starting. has it always made this noise or just started. or does the noise start then go away? if it stays on all the time i'd say your pump is getting ready to go out this is something you could change yourself save $$$ just get the make and model # of the side of door. then call an appliance store see if they can get one first before you take it apart if it's an old model might be best to get a new one (dishwasher) if and you get a pump the water shut off should be under you sink just the hot then pop the cover off bottom of dishwasher (TURN OFF POWER FIRST TO DISHWASHER!!!) it would easier if you pulled the unit out then tilt it back and you'll see the pump the rest is pretty easy. good luck
Please perform an vinegar clean cycle on your dishwasher..Pour a half cup of vinegar into the bottom of the dishwasher and run a cycle at the highest temperature possible.Run the complete cycle.. Also clean the dishwasher filter for debris if any.
check to see if the load noise is coming from the motor that is attached to the sump if it is replace the motor and sump together as one unit if you buy them seperatly youll end up paying almost twice as much for the single pieces take off the bottom panel to inspect where the loud noise is coming from
-Switch to a brand name detergent powder - like Electrosol or Cascade and do not fill the dispenser cup full. You will notice the difference immediately.
-Remove the filter assembly one more time and inspect underneath with a flashlight. Look closely for debris and also inspect the impeller to look for damage and that it is spinning freely.
Reassemble and listen for the growling sound. It should not happen. If it continues, you may have a a failing wash motor / motor bearing.
Please report back what you find. OK?
Well done by resolving this problem. The other way to avoid the siphoning problem through the drain hose is adding an air gap valve/connector (available at any hardware store). You can use it even if you don't have a garbage disposal in your kitchen sink. That will assure that you have the proper height of the drain hose.
Hope this helps!
