Kenmore dishwasher making "spitting" or "sputtering" noise during operation


The easiest way to confirm if the arms are blocked is by turning all the arms in the machine to a certain same position and running the machine for a few minutes in its wash cycle. Open the door and see if the arms have moved. If not, check all the holes in the arms for blockages. Sometimes its very difficult to clean them. You may have to poke a pin or something into hole and then shake the obstruction out through the large inlet hole under the spray arm itself.

GE Profile dishwasher too loud during the washing cycle


It has been my experience that water doesn't damage motors it destroys them! While it is possible I guess I would look and see if there is any kind of drive mechanism between the motor and the arm that could have been damaged. A warped shaft, bearing or bushing or something of that nature.

Hi Brian.

Clicking noise is often given by the bearing in the spray arm. The part is not expensive, less than one dollar.

The part is indicated as nr 611 in this diagram.

Here also parts and diagrams

GE GLD6560L15SS ' PartSelect

If that is not the problem try to understand if the noise comes from the bottom or from inside the door. If noise comes from bottom of the appliance check pump and drain line. If noise comes from the door it is possibly the control module. Noise from a relay in control module would be quite unusual with this model.

Check if the noise comes from arm bearing, that is the most common problem with this model.

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.

    My mother-in-law called and her dishwasher is making a loud noise when the motor runs. sounds like a bad bearing somewhere? the noise stops when it drains (motor not running?). does that sound like the...


    There is only one motor -- it runs a water pump for recirculating the water when it's washing and runs a water pump when it's draining.

    It sounds like the spray arm is making the noise -- this is the part thru which the motor / pump forces the water during the wash cycle -- the pumped water causes the arm to rotate -- a warn or loose spray arm or mount is likely the problem.

    Or, it could be just some utensil stuck in the bottom of the dishwasher which the spray arm is rubbing.

    More info, let me know.

    I have an MDB760 dishwahser making a lot of noise


    The pump is not turned on when the what is sloshed around. It is the wash motor which turns the arms around. It is likely something is stuck under the washer arms or the washer motor bearing is faulty.

    If the dishwasher is only about 2 years old, I would suggest you call Maytag for warranty service. Depending on the part they will have different warranty time period. Normally 2 years should be a general policy .

    Loud noise


    Check for bones/glass/ceramic from chipped plates in the food chopper (for lack of a better term). You'll need to disassemble the entire lower arm unit.

    Whirlpool dishwasher makes a loud notise then


    The spray arms do sometimes wear and need replacenent, and are available fron spares centres.
    The loud noise is probably the water pressure pushing it off at an angle, and instead of rotating, water will just escape out one side - so your dishes will not get clean untill it is replaced.
