Hi

Grinding noise is due to a cracked impeller which can be accessed by removing the spray arm. Sometimes a poor washing complaint is common after this wash impeller has cracked. Remove power first before investigating.

The motor shaft has started to rust and swells out and this swelling cracks the upper impeller. Most times a new seal and impeller kit can cure this complaint but sanding and cleaning of motor shaft is required before replacing the new seals and impellers.

Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

Grinding sound in FGHD2472PF frigidaire professional


Hello friend, thank you for your inquiry!

I understand that your Frigidaire dishwasher is making a grinding noise. Typically that noise could be a faulty motor/pump. I have included a link to your manaul. If that does not help I would recommend having a technician out to your home to properly diagnose and repair your appliance. Best of luck. -Matt

Samsung DMR78 dishwasher makes a grinding noise at the beginning of the wash cycle as well as the rinse cycle. Also comes up with the code 9E on occasion.


Check the brackets that hold the top rack for any broken plastic brackets. My dishwasher was making the same noise and after noticing the broken plastic pieces I pulled out the dishwasher put it on its side removed a white panel on the bottom that is attached with two screws, removed the drain line and inside there were two plastic tabs from the broken bracket. Once those were removed the grinding noise stopped. The bracket holding the drain hose can be removed with a pair of pliers.

Kenmore Elite 137889, grinding noise


If the noise is like a shaking of rattling , like coins being shaked , then it is an object trapped inside the tub.

If instead the noise is a loud grinding , that may get louder on high speed, then it is usually a bad drum bearing.

The drum bearing is replaced by accessing the bottom side of the washer, and is a not a simple repair.

Load grinding noise, like the engine is working too hard.


Most likely the motor/pump assembly is worn out and grinding. If the machine is less than five years old it is under warranty. If over five years old, the repair part alone is about $150 not including labor.

Focus front brake grinding noise on frist braking in the mornring


Look for a metal tab at the brake. It's only supposed to touch (and make noise) when the brakes are worn down. Sounds like it's bent in too far.

Kenmore dishwasher


Mine eventually "fixed itself". I think some debris got caught and eventually (5 cycles or so) got ground up and sent through the drain. The noise changed each time it got closer "flushing out"

Lexmark C510 Laser Printer- Grinding Sound on startup and while printing


Thank you Krissy! I had the same problem with the horrible grinding noise.

I took out all of the toners and the photo developer and noticed that my Blue toner was leaking all over. After reading your post, I tried replacing the toner. It worked!!! No more noise - and no more mess!
