Question about Whirlpool Dishwashers

1 Answer

Fixed noisy problem now I have a new one....

We fixed the impeller on the washer and its nice and quiet now and actually starts to run but then kicks off on its own and won't finish. I don't think its spinning freely and was wondering if anyone knew if we missed a step somewhere in the instilation of the new impeller and chopper or if we needed to do something else? HELP, its close to Christmas and I have 20 people comming for dinner. I NEED my dishwasher.... Thanks...

SOURCE: Noise

I have a PAV2300 and I recently experienced a grinding noise. Turned out to be the pump pully has a sleve between the pully and the bearing that has slid out of position. I took the pump out and using a small bladed screwdriver, wedged it between the selve and the base of the pump and working my way around it several times, managed to press it back into place. On the PAV2300 the pump is in the back of the unit. Looking at the picture the sleve is between that pully and the black base. Hope this helps. Good luck :)

This is not the turbo it is the over-powering the clutch, it happens in 5th because that is when most worn clutches slip, it is the biggest load, replace your clutch.

SOURCE: makita LS1013 miter saw motor runs very slowly

Could be a bearing problem. If the bearings are dry and seizing up they will hinder the motor speed. Alternatively, if they are worn and allowing lateral movement in the motor the armature will rub against the field windings when it all magnatizes (sp?). I would investigate bearings before electrics. Hope this helps, good luck.

Pushing and holding the 'Heated Dry' button should turn off the light over the padlock symbol and get you going again.

you can replac the chopper as a seperate part, but will quickly clog, and destry ohter parts of the unit if removed. dont take this the wrong way but if you have a garbage disposer already rinse the dishes better to avaid further clogging of chopper

Had repairman fix my disherwasher few days ago not draining. Now it's noisy while washing which was quiet before


Look around the bottom of the tub for foreign material, like a knife, spoon, nut or bolt.

I think if the repairman had "done it", it would have acted up immediately.

Also, look for anything sticking below the basket that might be interferring with the washer arm that spins around, too.

follow the steps and fix it. God bless you

Level
If it is shaking and not sitting flat ( should have no rock corner to corner) check the leveling legs. Make sure to tighten up the locknut after adjusting.

Timer
Sometimes a Timer will start making noises before they fail. I would highly suggest replace the timer as soon as the noise develops. This can cause problems with your motor and other components if left alone. This is easy to identify just listen up near the console when running.

Transmission
The transmission does not usually fail but to check this on a direct drive remove the motor and rotate the inner tub and listen for noises it should be quiet. If not the transmission is expensive and you will need to evaluate wether it is worth repairing.

Motor Coupler
On direct drive machines this is a common failure and can be very noisy. To chech and replace the motor coupler watch .

Motor
You will need to disassemble the washer to listen to the motor running. If the motor is noisy it will need replacing. On direct drive models check the motor coupler first.

Suspension Rods
The Suspension Rods support the tub under the cabinet on some models. The washer must be dissasembly to access. These usually do not fail. On direct drive types there will be springs instead of suspension rods. Either usually fails but can from being overloaded.

Drain Pump
The drain pump can be the cause of noise. On belt drive types remove the belt and rotate the pump pulley it should spin freely and make no noise. If it is noisy replace. If it does not spin freely remove and inspect for obstructions if none found replace the pump. Check the impeller on the pump it should be tight and spin freely. On direct drive types replace the pumps or inspects

Whirlpool dishwasher misbehaving


What it sounds like to me is the water fill solonoid plugged or not opening all the way. Check to see if the washer fills with water when starting, that should be the first thing it should do. If it does, then the whining noise could be your water pump inside the washer trying to run, which means it could be a bad motor or the impeller may have come off of the motor shaft. I would pull the screen off the inside of the machine and inspect for damage from a bad impeller. You will have to pull the washer arms off first, they just pull up and off, and the screen you can do the same to. If it is motor or impeller problems I would suggest calling an appliance repair man or just check to see what it might close to get repaired.

Asko 1875 had a new main board, wax motor and temp thermistor fitted 6 months ago. now thw machine pumps in the water but does not wash what could be the problem


Hello, welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description and provided the dishwasher is indeed 1) an Asko 1875 and 2) filling with water, draining, heating, but not circulating, It sounds like a busted wash impeller within the main motor/circulation pump, unfortunately.

First though, do you hear a quiet sound of the wash motor starting once the unit has completed filling with water ? And be sure the unit is actually filling with water, this image below indicates the normal water level to look for....


macmarkus_284.jpg


The pump will be super quiet if the wash impeller is broke as I suspect it may be...almost like a fountain, since the Asko are very quiet under normal conditions. You will have to either get right down with your ear to the bottom or run it with the door open by activating the door switch with a screw-driver and look for visual/audible clues.

If so that is a tell tale of no wash action yet the motor runs, hence broken impeller. If you don't hear anything it may be a wire come off the main motor/circulation pump...but not likely.

This unfortunately is common with Asko built dishwasher`s and it is a case of being a victim of their own design.

What happens typically is the ball-bearings from the upper rack holders ( which are plastic, hence fatigues due to heat and fall apart ) come out making their way into the sump, hence breaking the wash impeller from the motor.

Let me know what you find and I'll try and help you move forward from there. If you need direction to remove the circulation motor and pump I can do that, but it is a pretty involved repair and requires pulling the unit from the cabinet...you may opt to call in a pro.

I'll watch for your reply and try to help in any manner I can.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description and provided the dishwasher is indeed 1) an Asko D1776 and 2) filling with water, draining, heating, but not circulating, It sounds like a busted wash impeller within the main motor/circulation pump, as you mentioned. What you may not know, is the impeller itself is not serviceable, the entire motor/pump must be replaced unfortunately.

Before declaring it is indeed a motor/impeller issue, you said you hear a quiet sound of a motor starting once the unit has completed filling with water right ? Be sure the unit is actually filling with water, this image below indicates the normal water level to look for....

You will have to either get right down with your ear to the bottom or run it with the door open by activating the door switch with a screw-driver and look for visual/audible clues. (try placing both spray arms at 12 o'clock position and placing a cup upright in the top rack. If the arms move and the cup fills, you've got circulation...if neither, you don't)

If so that is a tell tale of no wash action yet the motor runs, hence broken impeller. If you don't hear anything it may be a wire come off the main motor/circulation pump or severed somewhere between the motor and control, maybe where the door pivots during opening...but not likely.
