Grinding/Rubbing noise? My GE Potscrubber 650 just started making a weird grinding/rubbing noise. It went through the cycles just fine except for this new noise.

    Worked like a charm. Interesting things came out of the sump- the culprit was a hard plastic tube/straw of some kind. Thank you!

The unit has a "food chopper" inside the pump sump. it is to chop up "food" items and not bones, seeds or other items. you can keep running the unit and see if after 2 or 3 loads the noise goes away. ie: the item get chopped up small enough to go out the drain.
if it doesnt go away, then you will need to get into the wash pump and see what is stuck in the sump.
its not hard to take apart and you will find whatever shouldnt be in there.

Washer makes grinding noise but isn't doing anything else


Remove the cap off the agitator, flip back the top of the console, remove any nuts keeping the tub in the console. There will be a clutch ring that needs to be replaced. I have an older top load washing machine. I agitates, fills, and drains, but it won't spin. It sounds like it is spinning, but it doesn't. It might be the coupling. That is a 3 piece kit that goes between the transmission and the motor. I found the directions how to do it over the internet, got the part and fixed it myself.

Hi, my Miel, Inspira series dishwasher makes a very loud grinding noise for a few seconds and shuts down...


It must be trying to drain out water but the pump mechanism might be rubbing due to faulty bearing. Need full model number before I can give you more details to look for. Is this happening right at the beginning of the wash cycle?

When washer is started make loud grinding noise


Very likely the bearings in the motor have begun to fail. You can replace the motor, but for a 15 year old DW, sometimes it makes better sense to just buy a new one. Depends on the features the old DW has, vs new, vs motor replacement cost.

Reply back and we can you more.

Makes growling noises throughout the cycle.


HI. here are the most common issues that will cause a noise during the wash.

* Check the spray arm for damage and obstructions
* Check the inlet filter screens
* Test the water inlet valve(see below for test procedure)
* Check the motor and mounts- The motor may e loose or one of the mounts may have separated form the housing. this will cause mis-alignment.
* Check the fan motor and blade
* Check the drain for obstructions


NOTE

If all checks out above, the culprit will be a cracked pump impeller. this will occur if the drive stud becomes unstable, allowing the impeller to partially separate form the motor spin drive stud. this will cause the impeller to rub or grind during the wash cycle. If this is the case, there are impeller repair kits available for purchase that will correct this issue.
