Dishwasher Problem -REVISED

The sound that is coming from the dishwasher seems to be a cracking type of sound. It happens off and on throughout the wash cycle. I emptied the dishwasher and checked for any loose objects in the bottom and made sure everything was clear, then ran it empty. After several minutes into the wash cycle, the cracking noise started. I can't isolate where exactly it is coming from. I have never noticed this type of noise before. sound familiar to anyone? Any ideas?

My Frigidaire Dishwasher motor is not spinning rinse cycle

am not sure.. just try this
Check with a multi-meter for 115/220V on motor's tags.
If you don't get this voltage measurement, your problem is not with the motor.
In case you have 115/220V on motor's tags, try first to replace its brushes (2 carbon contacts that transfer the curent to the motor's armature).
try this good luck

Loud sounds

Many Frigidaire dishwashers come with the promise of being the "quietest dishwasher in its class," according to Frigidaire. However, a quiet dishwasher doesn't necessarily mean that the dishwasher is silent, as some noises are normal. It can take some troubleshooting at times to determine if a noise coming from the dishwasher is typical or if it indicates a larger problem Listen for the sound of water filling and draining throughout the wash cycle. These sounds are normal and do not indicate an issue.

  • 2 Pay attention to the drain motor, which operates at the beginning of each cycle. This noise should be fairly quiet and should not sound like a loud, grinding or banging sound.
  • 3 Note that the sound will change when the wash cycle moves between the lower and middle spray arms. This sound should be temporary and fairly quiet.
  • 4 Look for hard items in the dishwasher grinder or filter if a loud crunching, buzzing or grinding sound is heard. The dishwasher can typically grind up these items within one or two cycles, but the item may be lifted out and discarded to eliminate the sound.
  • 5 Remove the bottom rack and spray arms from the bottom of the dishwasher if there is a loud noise coming from the dishwasher that does not resolve itself. Look inside for the impeller, which is round and spins. Remove any debris that may be clogging up the impeller or pump.

    Newer dishwasher and actuaslly says in manual do not be alarmed if you cannot hear dishwasher as it is very quiet. Well mine is the exact opposite. It is so loud. Sounds like the motor is in overload....

    I would suspect there is something stuck in either your wash motor or drain pump. If the noise happens throughout the whole cycle, it's likely the wash motor, but if it only happens on start up and periodically thoughtout the cycle, it's the drain pump. The drain pumps are known however to get noiser after a few months, in which case I would have the drain pump replaced.

    Water flooding onto floor when running.

    The most common cause of this is a loose clamp on the pump discharge hose. It could also be a cracked hose, the hose came off (again, loose clamp). Check both ends - where the hose connects to the dishwasher AND where it connects to the sink drain.

    Another possible cause is a bad pump seal, although this is less common, and usually open happens when the dishwasher is pretty old.

    I have a miele G646 dishwasher whihs has sprung a leak into the bottom tray. Have dried it up and reset float switch but the water seems to be coming from a pipe on the left hand side of the machine. i...

    It sounds like the leak is coming from the water intake hose.
    The water intake house is located at the bottom sump of the dishwasher. To get to it the dishwasher has to be taken out and put on its back and the floor plan needs to come off. The intake hose runs from the inlet valve under your sink and attaches to the sump with a metal keeper. Overtime the part of the hose where the keeper is cracks (Normal wear and tear). As I recall the intake hose runs approx. $129.99 from Miele direct. It comes with an inlet valve on the hose. there is no separate or substitute hose you can use.

    Good luck

    Water inlet

    It sounds like there is either a kink in your drain hose or your garbage disposal is blocked up where the dishwasher drain is connected

    Motor runs when door is open- water does not come in- seems stuck

    depending on the brand and mdl the unit may be equipped with an overflow safety. If ther is water under the dishwasher in the floor pan then the sensors will trick the dishwasher into thinking it is leaking. Check under the kick plate . if it is moist then take a hair dryer and dry it up up until there is no moisture at all. This should cancel out the pump command and you can start over .

    It seems that your motor on the dishwasher is going out, like mine has just done. My explanation is that it sounds like something is grinding on glass or as if a bunch of mice are making noise. Eventually, the motor will not run any more. What will happen is that the dishwasher will fill up, then make a loud humming noise, while the heating element is making the water near the heating element sizzle. Now what you have is a possible fire hazard which compounds the problem with the dishwasher. Get rid of it, take the loss and live like my grandmother used to, without having a dishwasher. That is the best advice I can give you.
