  • GT Canada Feb 17, 2009

    Kitchenaid KUDS01IJ Stainless and the NOISE started with mine about 2 weeks ago. I have had it since March 2002 and run it at least once/day without any issues until this new noise. I am looking for a solution, but can't seem to find one. I will be tearing it apart later this week and I will either fix it or toss it. Did anyone find the root cause of their noise?

UPDATE, I took the dishwasher apart (lower filter and strainer area, below lower spinner arm) and voila there it was, 2-3 pieces of plastic actually more like the broken corners off some reuseable containers and some unpopped popcorn seeds. Once I took these out and reassembled it was the test drive...everything was back to normal, no more forcing/ grinding sounds. Relatively simple tear down and reassembly if you have toric bits (5 star). Maybe I was lucky or maybe it's fixed, either way the noise is gone for me. If you do it you might want to do it after a wash/dry cycle and tear down when the plastic is still warm (plastic gets briddle with age, heat and detergent. Good Luck

Fridgeair dishwasher not working making loud sound. water comes in and I can make it drain out but washer does not start


Hello

bearings in the heater fan may get worn out or rust. If this happens, it may become very noisy, either grinding on the bearings, or scraping against the rust. If this happens you need to replace the fan motor. Sometimes, a fan blade may come loose, and you need to replace it.
Sometimes it's the motor that makes the noise you hear. The motor has bearings in it which may become worn or get rusty. When the bearings get worn, they allow the shaft to wobble which can get quite loud. If there is a spin seal leak, water may get inside the motor, washing the bearing grease away. If the spin seal is leaking, you'll notice water leaking from under the dishwasher. There is also a disc attached to the top of the motor called a slinger. It sometimes breaks off and spins around the motor's shaft while it turns, causing some noises. You will need to replace the motor if the bearings are bad. You also need to replace the motor if the slinger is broken as well.

Newer dishwashers may make a squealing or rattling noise on the first run. This is because it has not had any water in it yet, and the motor seals are dry. You may hear this in a unit that hasn't been run in a week or more as well. You should operate the dishwasher regularly to keep the sump water from getting smelly, and to keep the seals lubricated. You can add a quart of water to the sump before running it.

Rattling noises may be produced by dishes rattling inside the dishwasher due to the water pressure from the sprayer arms on the dishes. To determine if the rattling is a loading issue, run the unit empty. If the sound is persistent, it may be that there is debris in the pump.

dishwasher water-inlet valves are noted to make a hum that lasts about 60-90 seconds several times during a washing cycle. This hum is a different hum than the sound of the motor running.

A rhythmic knocking or thumping sound may be caused the sprayer arms hitting something as they go around and around. Rearrange the dishes and resume the wash.

A clunking or clanking may be heard when the detergent cup opens; while a clicking sound may be produced by the timer or electronic control panel.

A solenoid makes a snap sound when it opens. This happens about six times during each load.

Pipes rattling or banging may be caused by a water hammer effect. Water hammer sounds are caused by a valve closing in the system, and yet the water in the pipe is still flowing because of its kinetic energy. The sound is caused by the water slamming into the closed section of pipe. A plumber can install an anti-hammer device.

Small objects can sometimes get stuck in the pump. When this occurs, you'll need to open the pump and then remove the item that is making the noise or replace the pump. The dishwasher pump is usually mounted directly to the motor and runs off the motor as well. The pump is also attached to the bottom of your dishwasher.

Frigidaire dishwasher model GLD2445RFCO is making noise


I have the same problem with my dishwasher. If you remove the kick plate while it is running, There is an electric motor underneath. If you push up and pull forward on the electric motor, the noise will stop. I used a block to prop it up and the noise stopped. You may want to try it.

The filter assembly in my LG dishwasher is always getting dirty.


Hi Jim,
Make sure that all the spray arms are clean and not blocked firstly
Pour a half a cup of white vinegar straight into the bottom (sump) of the dishwasher and run it on fast wash.
The vinegar has a small acidic base which breaks down fats etc.
This may fix the problem, or there could be another problem. It would be hard to tell without looking at the unit itself.

No washing after water fills up


Before replacing the impeller the technician will test the pump by energizing it. If the problem was not the impeller, then check timer control board and wiring harness.

Loud humming noise when dishwasher is filling up with water


your model is pretty new. just so you know your warrenty is 1 year parts and labor. 2 years on parts. it should not cost that much money.

there are two components that start before the circulation pump.(wash noise you hear)

first sounds you hear will be the drain pump. usually rattling noises if something is in it but it can make a hum noise if something is jamming the drain propeller up. which is accessible with a T20 torx driver. take the filters out and the mesh filter. and unscrew the screw in the base towards the left. pull out whatever is lodged.

the other humming sound can come from the next component that activates is the watervalve. make sure you dont have a kinked water intake line. otherwise its a bad valve. i have had to change a few of those water valves out already but not for a hum noise on your model. you have a new style water valve. when brands make new parts we get problems fast sometimes..

Dishwasher making loud noise


Newer washers are designed with a food grinder inside to help grind up large pieces of food. What you are hearing is the grinder doing its job. You do not need to worry about the noise. It should go away after a while as the food particle is ground up.

Kenmore..Few years old came with the house


Check the spade/lug wiring connectors under the unit at the motors They can work loose. These newer units only use the heating element for a short time. If you get it running again do not use tablet soap. Start your sink's hot water until its too hot to touch then start the washer, let the tank fill then open the door and pour in an additional gallon of hot sink water mixed up with liquid cascade soap. To get "Energy Star" compliance, They have made trade offs to use less water and energy. When mine is running it still doesnt clean very well at all. consider installing a small R.V. water heater under the sink or nearby.

Also make sure your drain hose is clear and has no kinks in it.
