Question about GE 24 in. GLD6500L Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

GE GLD6500LOOBB Washer makes a growling or grinding noise during wash cycle operation. I believe it may be one or more of the rotating wash arms not seated properly and vibrating when spinning. Otherwise the washer works great. The washer is 19 months old, and this just starting doing this within this past month. Any ideas or suggestions.

Open the door quikley while the washer is running. Is the spray arm spraying up and rotating. If not you may have a bad seal under the spray arm or a cracked one.

Why does washer make grinding metal sounds during wash cycle only?


When it is washing, look to see if the basket is moving at all. The basket should be stationary during the agitation cycle.

I have a GE front-loading washer. There is a horrible thumping noise as the drum turns. It is not constant - when I turn it by hand it seems to "thump" on every rotation of the drum. I ran it...


The thumping sound is a sure sign that the spider arms or the support arms that hold the wash drum are broken. It is a very expensive repair since you need to buy a replacement wash drum and spider arm assembly which almost cost as much as new washer. Get a few estimates before deciding whether to repair or replace the washer. Sorry.

Maytag neptune tl makes grinding sound and stops at 33 minutes in normal mode and at 24 minutes in quick wash mode



Hello djlampl,

With the lowest spin cycle setting I enter spin cycle in Quick Wash around the 21 minute mark. But first question is do you hear the grinding noise with the tumblers rotating during the wash/agitate cycle?

If you start a spin only cycle do you hear the grinding noise?

Does the washer error code out with an error code to the display? Codes such as dC, uC, Lr?, I assume the machine type is a FAV6800AW is that correct?

Any additional info will help in troubleshooting…..Rich

Assuming the machine type is a FAV6800A/FAV9800A here are some handy links;

The Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.

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.

GE dishwasher model GLD4200 making a growling noise


I do not know of these machines but would say it sounds like bearings related to its rotating arm if it has to deal with water.
It would have a seal at the back before the bearings which has failed so water has leaked onto it causing rust to form in the bearing which builds up fuses the ball bearings together in clumps, make it hard to rotate so you get a grinding noise followed later by squeaks as things deteriorate.
So sadly it needs a service call out or it will grind to a halt, this happens say after a few days of non use letting the rust level build up.
You can use it but at some point it will not be able to rotate and it will just stop with some odd error message if it has that ability. Sorry for the answer.

Hope this helps...........

Make noise during wash cycle, has no agitator action and no spin during spin cycle/drain cycle


Looks like the bearings may have failed. TURN OFF the POWER and try and rotate the agitator/tub by hand. If it is jammed you should investigate why. Possibly caused by bearing failure or something wound around spindle.

Take care and do not attempt to investigate the problem without first disconnecting from the mains!

Noisy dishwasher


This is a known issue for GE dishwashers and may be similar for other models too.  The fix is simple.  The noise is due to vibration of the arm for the middle sprayer.  Just secure it with a tie wrap or wire and the noise should be gone.

Refer to the following link for my earlier response to a similar issue which fixed the problem.

I had this same problem. I think its the upper spray arm vibrating during wash cycle. To verify; prevent the upper arm from rotating by putting a long spatula through the top rack or zip tie the arm so it don't rotate. If the noise goes away you found your problem.
