SOURCE: Dishwasher will not drain

Hello Tom,
Glad that you were able to find something out of place in the check valve ( like the gasket) which in turn was restricting the ball in that check valve from being in the right position. I'd be willing to bet that your problem is solved..
Regards,
Rick

SOURCE: My 6 year old Whirlpool dishwasher is loud

This is a bad wash pump. Looking at about $175 for just the sump assembly. You could do it yourself, but unit would need to be uninstalled.

SOURCE: My dishwasher(Bosch) makes sqeeling sound

Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description " makes squealing sound almost like beeping at the beginning of its cycle "...it is likely to be either the pump impeller or the inlet valve.

With the Bosch built line of dishwasher`s this is a known problem...the carbon ring ( spring ) of the impeller pump seal kit. ( make sure it is indeed a SHU9915UC before ordering parts )

**Most common in units not used regularly, i.e. in a holiday cottage or vacation property, but time to time on daily used as well unfortunately...but also due to the heat from normal wear & tear**


You first must determine which is the source of course. Does the noise begin after filling with water and the pump starts, or does it begin upon the filling of water ?


If it's the valve, make sure the water supply line is completely "open" and if so replace the valve with part #425458

i.e.

macmarkus_285.jpg



If it is the motor wash impeller squeeling It can be remedied by one of two methods, replacing the entire motor & pump assy part # 442548...

i.e.

e3a16c5.jpg

This retails between $99.00us. to as much as $170.00us. depending where you look. I usually go through "searspartsdirect.com" for about $100us. ( you can also investigate "repairclinic.com" or "appliancepartspros.com" to name a few.

Or if you are mechanically inclined, replacing the pump impeller kit. part # 167085

i.e.

08f460f.jpg
The kit is typically around $50 -$75us, hence it can be cheaper when factoring labour for the complete motor/pump assy.

This is a pretty involved repair to explain, in fact I think it is harder to explain than actually do...but I`ve done many.

If you`d like to provide me with an email address I can attach a file in "pdf" showing you step by step how you can do this without much cost at all really...likely your time will be the greatest expense.

Let me know how you`d like to proceed and I`ll help in whatever manner I can.

Thanks for choosing FixYa and Good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

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.

    It has started sounding really, really loud with a long grinding sound and then like a swishy sound for a short break, then the grinding sound again.


    Sounds like a piece of broken glass or hard fruit pit stuck in the garburator. Remove the botom rack and disassemble the eniter assembly located below the bottom rack. Keep track of the order of the parts until you reach the stainless steel garburator blade. If you are not mechanicaly inclined, take video of the dissasembley to help you put things back together. You will probably find a foreign object by the time you reach the blade. Continue disassembling the assembly below the garburator to ensure that the drainage ports are not obstructed. Consider re-assembling without the garburator blade to avoid recurring problems. Substitute Garburator blade with routine disassembley and cleaning every 3-6 months. Sadly thats the best way to overcome the failure prone Garburator mechanism. When its time to buy a new D/W, buy one with a filter instead of a garburator. I recommend Miele and recomend against all Whirlpool brands (Maytag, Jennair, KitchenAid, Kenmore, Whirlpool, WhiteWestinghouse, etc.)

    When Garburators Jam, you risk overheating that can melt the overpriced circuit board or overheat the motor. Either problem means discarding the dishwasher becasue the repair cost would be too high. The Garburator is a disgusting idea anyway. Instad of allowing food particles to sit at the bttom, the sme particels are minced and sprayed over the dishes that you are trying to clean.

    Loud noise when unit is pumping


    Sounds like it is not getting enough water. Try adding water to it to see if the sound goes away. Start the unit at the begining of a cycle, open the door after it has started to circulate and see where the water is at. If it is low then you have a problem with the amount of water coming in, possibly the waterproof (valve) is going. If the level is good and it happens later in the cycle, it could be a drain issue. You may have to get in a tech.

    Loud Whining/Humming noise while washing


    It's noisy If your dishwasher seems noisy, check these:

    Water-inlet valve
    Motor
    Heater fan
    Pump
    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.
