Question about KitchenAid 24 in. KUDI02CRBS stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

KitchenAid 24" KUDI02CRBS2 under counter dishwasher

This unit has worked perfectly for 16 months. Has always ran very quietly. Last week in certain stages of the wash cycle it has started to make a lound whinning noise. It fills and drains fine. Took the sump pump a part and found little trash. This noise is coming from underneath. I do not think it is the motor because the noise is not cosistant - only at certain stages in the wash cycle. Could it be the impeller on the motor?

Pull the dishwasher and check the sidewinder motor to verify that's the source of the noise.if so replace the motor. or check if there is any loose wire hanging.

Its possible, something is in the water pump making that noise, if not then its either the gearcase, basket drive/clutch. You may want to consider professional repair. If you need any further assistance please let me know. Also please take a moment to accept and rate my solution accordingly.
Thank you,

here are a couple other possibilities.
Water-inlet valve An aging water-inlet valve can sometimes fail slowly, rather than all at once. It can shudder on and off rapidly, causing the incoming water lines to shake, rumble, and rattle--sometimes violently. If yours is doing this, replace the inlet valve.

Motor If it's the motor that's noisy, either of these may be the "culprit:"

  • As motor bearings wear out, they can become quite loud when the motor runs. They wear out quickly if they frequently get wet, because the water washes away the motor bearing grease. Bearings can get wet if the spin seal is defective. Then there will also be water leaking onto the floor beneath the dishwasher. Replace the seal if it leaks (read about the main tub seal in the "It leaks" section, later).

  • If, from beneath the dishwasher, you can see a round, plastic disc that's mounted to the top of the motor (a "slinger"), it may have broken free of the motor shaft. If so, it could be rattling around the shaft while the motor is running. If that's the problem, you need to replace the motor.

Heater fan If the heater fan bearings are rusted or worn, they may squeal, or scrape loudly during the drying cycle. If this is the problem, replace the fan motor. Alternatively, the fan blade may be loose. If so, you need to replace it.

Pump Small fruit pits, toothpicks, and fragments of glass sometimes get stuck in the pump. When this happens, open the pump and remove the debris. The pump is usually mounted directly to the motor, then attached to the bottom of the dishwasher.

To get to the pump, you usually need to remove the lower rack, the spray arms, and the spray arm support from the inside of your dishwasher. A dishwasher pump isn't obvious. Look for an impeller--a round, plastic fan blade-type device that spins around and pushes the water toward the drain. When you can see the drain impeller, you should be able to see the clogging debris.

Dishwaer won't wash


Sounds like the impeller has frozen up or the motor burned up. Check the video below to troubleshoot.
Check your warranty,. Call manufacturer with model number and they might be able to help you. If you have to buy the motor, get the part number and do a search online. The manufacturers tend to be a bit high.

Good luck.

Our Frigidaire Ultra Quiet II dishwasher loud buzzing noise- wash


No longer "ultra quiet" huh?

A sound during certain cycles indicates a broken part. By the information provided sounds like a pump may be the problem. You may need to contact a service tech about this issue. If the appliance still under warranty, the service should be provided for free.

Every time when you hear noises (other than the normal ones) in the appliance, it indicates there is something wrong and it will worsen over time, so as soon you hear something is not ok, get assistance.

Our LG LDF7920st dishwasher (6 months old)makes a whistling noise


Hey, consider the float assembly!

We bought this dishwasher and ran it for the last 1 1/2 months and it made a grinding and whistling sound from day one (it's supposed to be nearly silent in its operation). Turns out the drain pump was cutting in while the machine was still filling, thereby emptying the wash tub of any water. Then, when the cycle proceeded to wash, the dumb thing had no water and made a horrible noise. So I had to pitch in at least 2-3 litres of hot water, and then it worked quietly! Had to do this every time there was new water intake.

After working with the repairmen - four visits later, we isolated the float assembly as the problem and they set about replacing the part. Turns out the two parts were markedly different. LG HAD INSTALLED an older model float assembly at the factory and it was the problem. The replacement part was the correct float assembly and things worked perfectly after that - thank goodness. No more babysitting the dishwasher.

Don't let anyone tell you the motor assembly needs replacement. I have seen that cop-out 'fix' all over the web. But use deductive reasoning to find out where the problem is in the cycle, and explore this option first - it's a quicker and cheaper fix than replacing the whole motor assembly.

'Mr. Float' as he is now called works like this:
-expels any residual water in the tub from the last wash
-intakes water for the wash or rinse
-whirs 2-3 times prepping for the cycle
-begins to wash, quietly
-expels at the end of the wash or rinse.

He used to:
-expel residual water
-intake new water for wash or rinse
---drain pump would cut in WHILE still filling
-machine would whir once, realize it didn't have enough water
-perform a brief top-up intake shot
-begin to wash and whistle and GRIND (this is where I would have to add the water)
-expels water from wash or rinse, and start all over again.

It's a good dishwasher and it will work, but the right model parts have to be in place!

Maytag quiet series 300


Maytag Quiet Series 300. The lights flash in sequence starting from the outside traveling inward. The timer counts backwards from 50 to 1. Then the sequence starts over. and continues over and over. I'm able to clear it when the time reaches 1 or 2. It stays off for a while (3-4 hours) then starts over. I can not clear the countdown until it reaches 1 or 2. After I clear it the dishwasher will work, but until then, no way. This happens with the door open or closed.

Error code 2H.....or stops on last minute


I don't think you'll find it's the control board.
I think you'll find it's the heater box.
Not an easy job to do yourself unless of course you know what you are doing.
I would suggest you contact Bosch. One other possiblity is that the water inlet is blocked, although to be honest this is very rare.

2-yr old unit is leaking


I had this problem with similiar model, the extended warranty company was out several times, replaced gaskets and many other parts. Still had the problem. The last tech replaced the upper washing arm that hangs below the upper rack, He said there was a defect where water shoots out between the mfg welded seam and shoots water at the door in the right spot to make it leak. He replaced it and haven't had the problem for about 8 months.
