Could be a clogged spray arm... take it out and give it a good cleaning. That might help.

SOURCE: 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!

Dishwasher is not working


10 years is probably the full life of your machine. I'm guessing that the problem is in your electronic control board and that part, itself, runs around $100 plus. And, if you add a service call, you pretty much have the price of a new, basic dishwasher. And this is assuming that the part is still available for a 10 year unit. Should you decide to replace the dishwasher, look for a Best Buy in your area and keep checking the 'open box/closeout' section on the store's website.. there are often very good buys (for instance, a Phoenix store has a $850 Kitchen-aid priced at $432) in that section. There are also several online dealers that include shipping in their price. If you shop around, you can probably find a basic dishwasher - minus the bells and whistles - for well under $300. Good luck.

Makes a whistling noise when in use


I had a problem with my LG dishwasher and there was a small stainless steel impeller that they had to replace to stop the high pitch noise. I think this impeller grinds up any food particles. The tech said if one of the veins bend it causes this issue.
