SOURCE: whirlpool dishwasher

I had the exact same problem with my Whirlpool Quiet Partner IV. I removed the lower arm, and a couple of components below that, and got to the filter/grinder (that thing that chops up and filters the recirculated water before it goes to the pump that feeds the arms). The filter was completely clogged. I used a knife to scrap away the foodstuffs, put everything back together and all worked excellent. Just goes to show you that you should rinse your plates before to place them in the dishwasher.

SOURCE: Indesit dishwasher.

It sounds like the anti flood switch is activated, lean the dishwasher back at a 45 degree angle. If water comes out the back you have a leak. Stand it up and try it try dishwasher, if it works this comfirms leak, you will need to find where it is coming from.

SOURCE: water left standing inside the buttom of dishwasher

It depends on What kind of Dishwasher you have. If the pump is old it may very well be bad or it could be a drain hose routing issue. The drain hoseshould always be looped up in the cabinet under the sink. If the drain hose is laid down low, the water could be backing up from the hose back into the dishwasher.

Dish water is not working. Water fills but no noice after that.

it's obviously sounds like your pump has gone, but considering the age of the machine, it would probably be best to get a new machine, that way you would have a 5 year warranty with it aswell so it's win/win really!

I was told its the waterpump that is making a load snorkeling noice what is its if not? almost like a dieseling noice also

Yes the water pump can make noises but there is also the belts that can make noises.
So pour some water when the car starts on the belt and pump area to see if the sound stops, if belt noise it will stop but if this is the water pump, the alternator bearing or the idler pulley , it must be checked.

My dishwasher is an MDBH955AWW. It was perfect

If the water pump inside is stuck, this will happen. Do not run unless you are clear. The pump coil may get burnt if left to hum.

Humming noise will be some times due to the the relay coil also. If you can check your self it's fine. Otherwise take the help of a service provider.

The dishwasher wont stop drying to drain . The darin is not blocked

check the following:---- Check for hose kinks or food plugging drain hose. Start at the drain port exit
  1. Check the check valve and drain hose for debris.
  2. Check pump motor for reversing during the pump out make sure the dishwasher is pausing between the wash and drain cycles letting the pump/motor reverse for the drain cycle.
  3. Check timer for not letting the dishwasher pause. ( not all dishwashers )
  4. Check pump motor assembly for a drain solenoid, during the pump out make sure the solenoid makes that distinctive "clunk" noise
  5. If you have recently installed a new garbage disposal, check knock-out plugat connection.
  6. Check pump impeller for damage.
  7. Check that the water inlet valve isn't seeping fresh water into the dishwasher when off.

Leaks front and back, makes loud noice

It sounds like broken glass shards have become lodged in the pump. You are looking at the possible need to replace the pump, and locating and repairing those leaks.

The cost of parts alone could exceed 200 dollars.

With a 12 year old unit, you may want to consider just replacing it, especially if you would need to pay a repairman to make the repairs. Your cost of repairs may actually exceed the cost of replacement.

At this point, the unit is already broken, so it couldn't hurt to remove the unit, disassemble the pump and look for the damage yourself. You may get lucky and just have a few seals to replace and a hose or two.

Here is a picture of a water pump, your should be similar and located underneath the bottom of the unit.

Pump making a louder than normal noice and seems to be grindng a bit. Also getting some leakage in the area where the pump shaft enter into the housing.

You have a bad pump seal. The water now entered the motor and ruined the motor bearings. Time to replace the motor and pump seal. If it is an old pump I would suggest replacing the whole thing.

Solution for "how do you determine if the pump is working versus the water valve needing replaced"

Make sure the water is turned on to the machine.
Set the machine to start the cycle. Put a volt meter on the water valve terminals. At the fill portion of the cycle you will read 120 volts at these terminals. If you read 120 volts and no fill, the water valve is bad. If you do not read 120 volts, the timer is bad.
Fill the tub with water using a pot. Set the machine at the pump out cycle. If it pumps out, the pump is good.
If it does not pump out it could be a bad pump or bad timer.

Loud noise

My Dishwasher had the same loud Grinding Noise.
It was a piece of a plastic fork lodged behind the macerator blade.
This is at the suction to the pump just under the strainer. check this out first before you pull everything apart. You should be able to get to it by taking the lower arm off and pulling the strainer out. Hope this helps.
