    Dishwasher is only 2 months old, was very quiet to start, suddenly, very loud humming, buzzing noise when running.

    I have a similar model Frigidair. I suspect that the pump motor is going out. Everything else seems to work okay, although we do have to pre-wash the dishes by hand to allow the dishwasher to do a decent cleaning job. Dishwasher, my ****.

    We have a 1.5-year-old Frigidaire FDB1500LFB dishwasher. So far the computer has gone on the fritz (3 days after warranty period expired) and now it is operating at loud buzzing levels (so loud it hurts my ears if I'm next to it). Considering just replacing the stupid machine.

Try tightening the screws along the side of the door cover, it could be that the front panel is vibrating.

Hello friend, thank you for your post!

Your water valve or spray arm could be the reason no water is getting to the top of your dishwasher. Remove the spray arm and clean it out with warm water. Also check to make sure that nothing is obstructing the spray arm from releasing water onto the dishes. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

Frigidaire FFBD2403LW normal cycle hum


Hello ddux97 - Often this occurs because either not enough water is being pumped to the spray arm or in other words the full flow of water is not making it to the upper spray arm. Will the spray arm rotate freely? If it does not, then you might have to remove or replace the spray arm assemblies since it is possibly damaged. Confirm that the drain hose is strapped up properly under the sink to prevent the water from siphoning out during the cycle. If issue persists, I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if the unit's status has changed successfully.

Frigidare ultra quiet 1 top wash arm not cleaning properly


Hello ezideas - First I suggest verifying that there is enough water pressure coming into the unit and that it is at least 120F. Do you noticed if the spray arm will rotate freely or if it is damaged? If so, the spray arm assembly may need to be replaced. Connect with a professional to accurately pinpoint any potentially more serious issue.

Hello seagraves98 - Since you have already confirmed that the spray arms are moving freely and the filter has recently been cleaned, I will suggest verifying that there is enough water pressure coming into the unit. Is the incoming water temperature at least 120F (49C)? If not, I strongly suggest that the temperature be adjusted on your water heater If any proves to be ineffective, it could possibly have a communication problem coming from the main control board, I would suggest contacting a professional technician to diagnose the unit accurately.

Makes noise during wash cicles and dishes are not cleaned


Hi Kenneth Cho - I will suggest verifying that there is enough water pressure coming into the unit. Is the unit making a grinding noise? If it is, then the dishwasher seems to have a defective drain motor. When was the last time the filter was cleaned? Do you noticed if the spray arm will rotate freely or if it is damaged? If so, you might have to remove and replace the spray arm assemblies. If any proves to be ineffective, it could possibly have a communication problem coming from the main control board, I would suggest contacting a professional technician to diagnose the unit accurately.

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.

    Our Frigidaire Ultra Quiet II dishwasher loud buzzing noise- wash


    No longer "ultra quiet" huh?

    A sound during certain cycles indicates a broken part. By the information provided sounds like a pump may be the problem. You may need to contact a service tech about this issue. If the appliance still under warranty, the service should be provided for free.

    Every time when you hear noises (other than the normal ones) in the appliance, it indicates there is something wrong and it will worsen over time, so as soon you hear something is not ok, get assistance.

    I have a Frigidaire Ultra Quiet Plus dishwasher. The top spray arm isn't spinning during wash. The bottom spins fine and I can spin the top freely by hand. It appears there is not enough water pressure...


    I may have the answer. I had what sounded to be the same problem. I found the dishes were dirty after they were cleaned, but I found there may have been a big pot lid blocking the upper arm. I decided to run the machine again, and after a bit opened the dishwasher after to make sure it was not a problem with the arm. Sure enough, the arm wasn't moving. However, I found out on the Frigidaire webpage that some models have an alternating spray cycle, where only one arm spins at any given time. After reading this I checked again, and it had moved by that time. I checked a few times more to confirm this. So it ended up it was an arm blockage after all. Hope this helped...good luck.
