Question about Hotpoint Dishwashers

Open Question

Hotpoint aquarius DC21 makes explosion sound - already happened about 6 times

DC21 makes loud explosion (bang) during use sometimes, but continues to work, and shows no sign of damage. Suggest could be capacitor releasing energy, or something. I am not an electrician but noise is frightening, and could be fire hazard.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Dishwasher Making Loud High Pitched Noise.

How deep do you want to get into this?It sounds like the wash pump motor bearings that are worn.You can pull the unit out flip it over and wd40 the bearings in the motor or you can replace the bearings.Try to lube them first.

SOURCE: Loud banging during kneading

Usually with products like this, one gear will be a plastic instead of metal which under too much stress will shear. Basically to narrow down the problem, you will need to open up the machine and find the part that is worn down considerably and then we can get you to the manufacturer or another retailer that can get you the replacement part

SOURCE: kenmore elite dishwasher making loud buzzing sound when washing

I had the same problem with by Kemore Ultrawash after two years. The motor bearing went bad because the seal went out and dish water got to the bearing. If you are handy, this motor comes out after taking the dishwasher out. I was surprised how easily the motor came apart from the dishwasher, a good design. The motor has three screws that holds it together, I took them out and took the motor apart.
I took the old beaing off the shaft with a grinder, careful not to groove the motor shaft. I did, but just put some high temp silicone caulk in the groove before I put the new bearing on the shaft. I bought a new bearing on the internet, it is a 22mm x 8mm x 7mm. I bought one that went in a small engine, a quality one. I placed it on the shaft, put the motor back together and put the dishwasher back together. It has run quiet and great for many weeks now. I expect the dishwasher may last many years now, because the bearing I took out was a cheap aftermarket one, and the new one is vastly superior in quality.

Good luck and fire away with any questions. I love this dishwasher and am glad I could fix it for 19$ and some of my time.

Hotpoint wf740 aquarius 1400 v noisy banging during spin = dust


It could be a broken drum restraint spring, or a worn or broken. or loose shock absorber.
To check the springs, remove the top cover, and you will see the springs.
Another possibility is the concrete weight could be broken or loose.
You need to remove the lower rear panel of washer to check the shockers and concrete weight.
Please rate my solution.
Thankyou.

Banging during spin


Check to ensure the machine is level first, then that the load is level when wet. If not, something could possibly get in there (though I doubt it). You can probably see most of what you have to access when you open the back, just make sure it is unplugged first. Should be easy to check it out if you have to. I would look at the first two solutions first, whick may save your afternoon to watch the football game. Hope this helps :).

Hi,i have a hotpoint aquarius wf340.which makes a very loud banging noise every time it spins,it works fine otherwise!


I had the same issue with a similar machine. Need to replace the spindle assembly (or otherwise make sure) that the belt is tight. Try replacing belt first.
Make sure machine is level. test it by putting some stuffed sockes in the machine, let them get thrown around. Listen for the banging noise, apart from the soft socks hitting the tumbler.

It could be that the drum is coming loose and a bolt requires tightening. I would suggest that you cease use until you get this fixed. Yell.com will provide you with choice of qualified engineers who can assess and repair.
