    took the inside assembly apart, found no foreign food or other objects inside. The food grinder screen was like new, but there is a small piece of the gasket broken off from under the chopping blade assembly.Put everything togrther, tried it and at first I had the noise, but way quieter, let it run and after about five minutes the noise went away.

Most likely the motor as food caught in the sump would not make a noise you described.

I have a year old kitchen aid dishwasher and during fill cycle it makes a thumping noise. The dishwasher every 5 or 10 seconds shuts off fill cycle then turns back on which I think is what's causing...


Drain Pump

If the dishwasher is loud during operation, the drain pump might be defective or might have some debris in it. This is a common problem.

Circulation Pump

If the dishwasher is loud during operation, and the noise is a continuous drone similar in speed to the circulation pump sound, it's likely that the circulation pump motor bearings have failed. Once this happens the circulation pump will have to be replaced, the bearings are not repairable.

Drain Impeller

If the dishwasher is loud during operation, the drain impeller might be broken, or there might be debris in the pump. Generally, to gain access to the pump the top of the pump housing will have to be removed.

Pump and Motor Assembly

If the dishwasher is loud the motor bearings, drain impeller or wash impeller might have worn out. All three of these components are part of the pump and motor assembly. It may be possible to replace one of the impellers, but the motor bearings cannot be repaired. In that case the pump and motor assembly will need to be replaced.

Wash Impeller

The wash impeller is a small, plastic blade. The motor spins the impeller forcing water through the spray arms to clean the dishes. If one or more blades has broken off of the impeller the dishwasher is loud. The impeller can also scrape against the pump housing if it is damaged, warped or bent.

Circulation and Drain Pump Motor

Water Inlet Valve

The water inlet valve is an electrically controlled water valve. When it is new, the water inlet valve is very quiet. Over time, the diaphragm inside the valve deteriorates and deforms. This deformation interacts with the water rushing in and can cause a loud vibration, buzzing, squealing or other noises. If the dishwasher is loud during the filling cycle, replacing the water inlet valve may solve the problem.

Washing Machine making a loud whirring noise when water is filling and when the machine is spinning out


Check the motor bearings If your washing machine is making a high-pitched whine or squealing noise while running, the main culprit is usually worn motor bearings. To check the motor bearings, remove the belt and run the motor by itself, listening for the noise. If it makes the noise, than the problem is most likely the result of worn motor bearings and has nothing to do with issues in the rest of the washer. Check for Obstructions Sometimes coins, bra underwires and other metal objects come loose in the wash and become stuck between the tub and the drum. Using a flashlight, take a good look inside the washing machine. If you see dents, scratches or dings, that's a sign that there either are or have been items bouncing around in there that can make a horrible racket. Check for Grease Spatter A high-pitched squealing can be caused when the grease thins around the bearing that's located under the tub. Open up the washing machine and check the interior for grease spatters or spots. That could mean that the grease has thinned out around the bearing and it's making the noise because of rubbing. Check the Drum for Irregularities Spin the drum by hand, listening for the noise. If it makes the noise in the same spot with each rotation, the problem could be with the washing machine drum itself. Parts of the drum can corrode over time, leaving it vulnerable to cracks or rust.

As soon as the motor starts up after the dishwasher fills, the motor makes a loud grinding noise that turns into high pitch whining. Water begins leaking from above the pump.


That shows a leaking water seal. Water would run into the motor bearings which then rust and make noise. You probably need the motor / pump kit.

Whirlpool duet is about one and half years old and starts making a loud metal to metal noise while trying to start after the water had run in. Clank, Clank, Clank Loyd


Hi Loyd.

If the metal noise is like rattling, as first thing check the object trap located behind the trim at the base of the washer. Check also through the basket holes and inside the tub if there is any foreign object stuck that may be causing the noise.

From the description the noise looks more like that of a broken spin basket support, which is a common fault on Duet. This fault will result on a rithmical loud clank that occurrs more or less when the basket is passing through the same position.The basket supports are located at the back side of the basket.To reach the part an almost complete disassembly of the appliance is required. The spin basket and its support is covered by long term warranty (ten years or lifetime).

Call Whirpool at the number listed on the manual, tell them the symptoms and eventually mention that a technician suggested the problem being the basket support, and check conditions for repair. The repair will be probably covered by manufacturer.

Regards.

Ginko.

Dishes not coming clean


Check to make sure that the drainline is not backed-up or obstructed. If water is draining properly, you may need to reprime your washer. It may have been turned off before being completing its cycle. To Prime, Start the dishwasher and slowly advance the timer, till you hear the water valve open and fill. Let the washer do the rest. If a loud whining noise appears and does not go away after filling, check the motor to make sure it is not locked up. If locked up. Turn washer off and attempt to turn the impellor. Once free, it should be ok
