If it is shaking and not sitting flat ( should have no rock corner to
corner) check the leveling legs. Make sure to tighten up the locknut
Sometimes a Timer will start making noises before they fail. I would highly suggest replacing the timer
as soon as the noise develops. This can cause problems with your motor
and other components if left alone. This is easy to identify just listen
up near the console when running.
The transmission does not usually fail but to check this on a direct
drive remove the motor and rotate the inner tub and listen for noises it
should be quiet. If not the transmission is expensive and you will need
to evaluate wether it is worth repairing.
On direct drive machines this is a common failure and can be very noisy.
You will need to disassemble the motor to listen to the motor running. If the motor is noisy it will need replacing. On direct drive models check the motor coupler first.
The Suspension Rods support the tub under the cabinet on some models. The washer must be disassembled
to access. These usually do not fail. On direct drive types there will
be springs instead of suspension rods. Either usually fails but can from
The drain pump can be the cause of noise. On belt drive types remove the
belt and rotate the pump pulley it should spin freely and make no
noise. If it is noisy replace. If it does not spin freely remove and
inspect for obstructions if none found replace the pump. Check the
impeller on the pump it should be tight and spin freely. On direct drive
types remove the pump and inspect it
A vibrating noise indicates that your Bosch dishwasher is not level. Adjust the leveling legs until the dishwasher is level. Use a carpenter's level to assist you with this process. If the floor is uneven or unstable, fix the flooring. Or, place wood shims or a 3/4 inch piece of plywood under the dishwasher.
The motor has a plastic disc connected to it, which can break off if it wears out. You must replace the whole motor since this component is difficult to fix. Check the motor bearings, which can make noise if they get wet. If the bearings are wet, your tub seal is compromised. Pry it out with a crowbar, and install a new one. A squealing noise usually indicates that the heater fan is warped or rusted. Order a new one since you can't usually repair this part.
Here is how it works: You activate the wash cycle and power goes to the motor and water valve. So either the water valve or the motor but not both will run. Why? The water level switch has 3 wires. A common hot wire and a wire to the water valve and to the motor. The king of the highway the water level switch is the boss dawg. But is has help from mother nature. A rubber tube is placed at the bottom of the tub. It is connected to that water level switch and air tight. As the water rises in the tub the air pressure inside that tube rises. Engineers have it worked out where X amount of pressure will determine water level in tub. When that air pressure reach's the determined strength BOOM the switch is forced to click. When it does it kills the power to the water valve and shifts the power to the motor babes. And away we go with wash cycle. So what can go wrong? Sand and sediment get into the inlet of that tube. A hole gets in that tube, vibration makes the tube fall away from the switch, and my fav: pinched tubing from reinstalling cabinet incorrectly(been there done that) LOL To recap: Make sure the tubing to the switch is tight and secure and free of holes or restrictions. Nothing to it. Here is a video which features how to access the water level switch to check all of the above:
The impeller and/or motor shaft is stuck or seized. If accessible you can try rotating the motor shaft with a visegrip plier or similar tool to see if it will come lose. Otherwise you should consider having the pump taken out and overhauled. Often the shaft seal begins leaking and result in water damage to the motor bearings. Bearings can be replaced, but compare labor and parts for overhaul to simply replacing the whole pump.
Tub overflows are not required in all states but I highly recommend drilling the hole and installing the proper waste and overflow drain I recommend the Gerber brand and also when you set the tub you need to set it in a light concrete for stability I use great stuff foam for setting tubs 2 cans spray on floor and set and level tub tub will never wobble or move
i have seen this in the past, a ground fault electrical outlet on the inside of a roman tub,if you have a 2 story house look for access panel on or by tub. otherwise you have to remove tile or other to access motor, you probably need a step too anyways
because of the grinding noise your talking about it sounds like the motor bearings are bad which would require motor replacement. but, thats normally not what cause the " not completly turning problem" your having. general thats cause be the motor speed control not sending the proper power to the motor. remove the belt and turn the motor by itself to see if the noise is really come from the motor and not the back of the tub. if it is the motor, replace the motor. if it coming from the back of the tub the replace the motor speed control. the noise coming from the back of the tub would just be the ball bearings and they do make some noise on this model but you wont hear it when the washer is running
