Clicking noise from under the dishwasher & Its a new dishwasher

We have just bought this model dishwasher, only a month and a 1/2 hold. There is a clicking sound coming from under it when the machine starts, then it might quit then start back up again. I doubt it has been used 20 times so far. What would be causing this clicking sound? And we did purchase the extended warranty on this model. I was going to call Home Depot and say, fix it, replace it, do something with it. Any idea what the problem might be?

Maggie, what you are hearing is probably the drain pump solenoid. At start the drain pump will get in to get rid of any water and purge the system. It's hard to tell without being there. I would call for service, it won't cost anything. Have the tech check the wash and drain pump assy. Catriver..post back.

My whirlpool dishwasher is quiet exept for loud clicking noise evry 10 min. during every cycle


Not enough information for me to accurately troubleshoot it, however, it's under warranty. Call up the store you purchased it from and schedule an appliance repairman to come out and troubleshoot it for you.

Our LG LDF7920st dishwasher (6 months old)makes a whistling noise


Hey, consider the float assembly!

We bought this dishwasher and ran it for the last 1 1/2 months and it made a grinding and whistling sound from day one (it's supposed to be nearly silent in its operation). Turns out the drain pump was cutting in while the machine was still filling, thereby emptying the wash tub of any water. Then, when the cycle proceeded to wash, the dumb thing had no water and made a horrible noise. So I had to pitch in at least 2-3 litres of hot water, and then it worked quietly! Had to do this every time there was new water intake.

After working with the repairmen - four visits later, we isolated the float assembly as the problem and they set about replacing the part. Turns out the two parts were markedly different. LG HAD INSTALLED an older model float assembly at the factory and it was the problem. The replacement part was the correct float assembly and things worked perfectly after that - thank goodness. No more babysitting the dishwasher.

Don't let anyone tell you the motor assembly needs replacement. I have seen that cop-out 'fix' all over the web. But use deductive reasoning to find out where the problem is in the cycle, and explore this option first - it's a quicker and cheaper fix than replacing the whole motor assembly.

'Mr. Float' as he is now called works like this:
-expels any residual water in the tub from the last wash
-intakes water for the wash or rinse
-whirs 2-3 times prepping for the cycle
-begins to wash, quietly
-expels at the end of the wash or rinse.

He used to:
-expel residual water
-intake new water for wash or rinse
---drain pump would cut in WHILE still filling
-machine would whir once, realize it didn't have enough water
-perform a brief top-up intake shot
-begin to wash and whistle and GRIND (this is where I would have to add the water)
-expels water from wash or rinse, and start all over again.

It's a good dishwasher and it will work, but the right model parts have to be in place!

Loud Whirring Noises


very possible that it is indeed something stuck in the chopper assemble, remove the lower wash arm, from ther youll remove 4-5 torx15- screws and then under there you find another torx 15 screw , after removng the screw you can pry up hte cover form the right side and reveal the chopper assembly, i would refrain form removing the chopper if at all possible, its kinda a pain in the rear to put back in, buit you can cean any junk out if ness.

TRANSMISSION NOISE


I bought a 05 Murano SL and two months later I heard a very slight clicking noise upon acceleration. I took it in to Nissa twice, they couldn't hear it. Well another two months later the transmission started making a loud clicking noise and turns out they had to replace the entire transmission (under manufactures warranty) - that tranny was on backorder so I drove a rental for 3 weeks til they got it in and replaced it. So since they were on backorder, i'm assuming there were many of these with tranny problems.

Tv making clicking noise while I am watching


Hello everyone,

I bought the model TH-50PX60U June of 2007. I've been hearing the very annoying clicking noise as well.

Since the TV has a one year warranty, I just called Panasonic and they've scheduled a tech to come over and take a look at it three days from now.

I will publish the results on the same page.

Dishwasher motor crapout


The dishwasher says kenmore but it is made by whirlpool or frigidaire. If the cost of repair exceed 2/3rds of the cost of a new one it would be best to replace it. Whirlpool makes good models. Their line of kitchenaid seem to be the quietest.

That knocking noise is probably coming from your water line, and that happens when there is some kind of a ripple/wave effect when the water goes into your dishwasher (DW) thru the inlet/fill water valve. First turn your hot water valve off, underneath the sink coming from the wall and it usually is also going to your kitchen faucet. Then turn the electricity off by locating the breaker to the DW line and turning it off, or if it is plugged in an outlet under your sink, just unplug it. Then take the kick toe panel (panel with 2 or 4, 1/4" or philips screws) from the bottom of the dishwasher. You will then see the water hose, or could be a copper pipe, going into the valve (will have a selenoide, cylinder shape on top and have 2 wires plugged in to it). Unscrew the hose/pipe from the water valve and get a small wide bucket or pot and aim the hose/pipe to it. Slowly have someone open the water valve from under the sink while you hold it in the bucket/pot. If you hear the knocking again, you will need a plumber to check the pipes, hoses and water valve at your wall. If you don't here the knocking noise, just replace the dishwasher inlet/fill water valve part # 785330. http://www.repairclinic.com/0080.asp. Please post back.
