Humming noise Hello..Hoping you can help me.I have just moved house and just got round to putting my dishwasher in new home.It has been standing idle for about 3mths and was working fine in old house.I connected up all correctly and started a cycle. The unit took water(I heard it going in)then made just made a humming noise for a while then stopped.I had 2 flashing lights..Dry light and cycle light.From the manual this represents an error code.Blockage or drain problem.I checked out drain hose etc...Anyway I tried again but the unit is making a humming noise then the lights again. I could also smell a burning smell.This to me indicates pump/motor..What do you think?Do these units have just a pump/motor which does the spaying and draining? Would appeciate your expert help in this..Thankyou regards Marc Dunn

Re: Humming noise

Humming is the motor powered up but not turning. burning smell is the motor overheating. cause may be the motor capacitor which is a cheap part. try replecing it and hope thge motor survived. could also be a foreign object in the pump impellor

Dishwasher making humming noise fills with water but it doesn't seem to be moving anything

The pump probably has bones or food stuck in it. Take out the racks and see if you use a flashlight, whether you can spot anything in the area of the pump drain.

Sounds like the water is either off or a flood safe hose is being used. The valve is energized and water is not flowing in, that is what the humming noise is.

check the center of the impeller, it should be flat on one side round on three, the impeller might be rounded out from the shaft it sits on. You might just need a new impeller. Good Luck, N let me know Thanks. jimmy

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..

Hello wayne180764,
If the wash arm ( impeller ) is free to move, then chance are the motor that dirves it isbound up or defective. IT may be trying to spin ( the humming noise) but unable to ( for whatever reason).. and then shuts down from overtemp or overcurrent sensors on motor.. If you want to diagnose the parts further..please use this link which includes some additional information

Bought the display unit and water will not work.

hi there the low humming noise that you are getting sounds like the fill valve, this could be due to you perhaps not turning the water back on after fitting the new dishwasher or the fill hose being kinked when the dishwasher was put back ,hope this is of some help to you.

Motor running noise

The humming noise and the fact that there is standing water indicates that the motor is stuck and trying to break free. Is the odor that you mentioned smell like a heated coil? This is a common problem with dishwahsers; but does not have an easy fix. If you want to try, first disconnect the power supply and open the bottom panel (below the door), Normally held by some screws. Then with a flashlight see if you can see the motor housing. You can then reach under and manually rotate the motor to break it free. Do it a few times and then reconnect the power and run the dishwasher and hopefully it will work. -Vish
