There is an O-ring they may be missing on the upper wash arm in the back or there are plugged jets in the wash arm(s). Check both.

Dishwasher starts in any type of cycle, runs for a minute, then shuts off as the lights blink out.

in general your wash motor can cause that. It gets old and you can hear the wash motor making a rumbling noise when it turns on. The increased load with cause a thermal coupler to turn the unit off.

When dishwaser is running a surginge sound is heard.hear surge then water in tub surge then water Repeats non stop.almost sounds like pump is on and off.


Although a noisy washing machine is not typically a sign that something is broken, it definitely can be annoying. Usually the noise from a washing machine can be fixed fairly easily, but a few different fixes may need to be tried before it can be determined what the true culprit of the noise was.

Instructions And Material You Need
  • Flashlight,Screwdriver,Drive belt
  1. Check the drum bearings if the washing machine is making a rumbling noise. The noise may possibly stem from water getting into the bearings. Take the belt off and spin the drum by hand. If there is a rumble, remove the bearings and replace them with new ones.
  2. Check the spider at the back of the drum. The spider is the three-armed device that holds the drum in place. If there is one loud noise on each revolution of the drum, there is a good chance the spider has partially become loose. Tighten the bolts on the spider to silence the noise it causes.
  3. Check for coins. If the noise the washing machine makes sounds like metal on metal, there is a good chance that some change has slipped from a pocket and is now in the dryer. Take a flashlight and look in the drum for coins, paper clips, and other small items.
  4. Adjust the legs. Many washing machines make more noise than they should because they have not been properly balanced. Re-adjust the legs to make sure that they are all even. This will keep the washing machine from moving and will ensure that the noise it creates while it moves will go away.
  5. Replace the drive belt. Often a high-pitched squeaky noise can come from a drive belt that has been worn down. Simply replacing the old belt with a new one will fix this problem.
Good luck and thanks for using fixya.

My dishwasher is making a very loud rumbling noise at certain times during the wash cycle. it's a ge nautilus

That usually comes from the main wash head being reinstalled without the white washer which provides a smooth surface for it to glide on, or it has cracked and fallen off, OR it's mounter to the head and has simply eroded.

Dishwasher makes a humming/rumbling noise when washing but stops when the water drains.

As the machine gets older, it may start to make other noises due to wear on the various parts. If the machine is working well, leave well enough alone.

We have a GE Dishwasher, when it is in the washing mode, it makes a rumbling noise that is coming from the bottom 0f the machine. Can you help? Thanks

Make sure your spray arms are not loose first.If it remains loud you may have something caught in the food shredder area that is making motor strain/rumble.Also make sure to look under the machine to see if anything(water line-Drain hose) is touching the motor which will sometimes make some unusual sounds.

most of the noises you are talking about happen often when something is down in the sumpyou need to take the pump apart and you will find something small in there causing the noise! i see if very often and common for this unit.
