My (five year old) dishwasher has the following issues:
Makes some eerie (whistling? high pitched?) noise while running.
Doesn't drain all the way
Leaks out front corner (see doesn't drain all the way)
Occasionally during a cycle it will start thumping - it sounds like it is bumping against the cabinets.
So - couple of questions. Should I be calling appliance repair (motor?) or a plumber (clog in line)?
I have 1) taken out the filters to see if there is debris (none) and 2) put baking soda and vinegar in to see if that helps.

Running any appliance that makes a noise can only make matters worse and cause more damage to the machine, if baking soda / vinegar and other cleaning and food items would cure faults then they would be sold saying use for dishwashers on the label, waste of money using such things, if your cleaning pipes out just use elbow grease ( oh just in case you ask where to buy it, (elbow grease is a term for hard work) sorry
it may be that you have not cleared out the filters etc properly, thats why it doesn't empty all the way, also check the outlet at the wall see if thats clear also
leaking, check seals for wear and kinks or damage, replace if signs of above, thats all you can do there to cure the leaks sorry

Do you have the brakes taken apart once a year, on all your vehicles, for rust removal,inspection, needed work & lubing,that is required Have to flush brake fluid every 2 years, if you don't want moisture in the system ruining it Don't know what the noise is,work on the brakes & then get back to the noise, if it's still there
I had a problem with my LG dishwasher and there was a small stainless steel impeller that they had to replace to stop the high pitch noise. I think this impeller grinds up any food particles. The tech said if one of the veins bend it causes this issue.
I had the same issue with my LG it has a stainless steel impeller the grinds up the food particles and if one of the veins get slightly bent it causes that problem. The tack took it out straightened it out until the new part arrived and it worked fine. He did return to replace it but I don't think it was needed
We bought this dishwasher and ran it for the last 1 1/2 months and it made a grinding and whistling sound from day one (it's supposed to be nearly silent in its operation). Turns out the drain pump was cutting in while the machine was still filling, thereby emptying the wash tub of any water. Then, when the cycle proceeded to wash, the dumb thing had no water and made a horrible noise. So I had to pitch in at least 2-3 litres of hot water, and then it worked quietly! Had to do this every time there was new water intake.
After working with the repairmen - four visits later, we isolated the float assembly as the problem and they set about replacing the part. Turns out the two parts were markedly different. LG HAD INSTALLED an older model float assembly at the factory and it was the problem. The replacement part was the correct float assembly and things worked perfectly after that - thank goodness. No more babysitting the dishwasher.
Don't let anyone tell you the motor assembly needs replacement. I have seen that cop-out 'fix' all over the web. But use deductive reasoning to find out where the problem is in the cycle, and explore this option first - it's a quicker and cheaper fix than replacing the whole motor assembly.
'Mr. Float' as he is now called works like this: -expels any residual water in the tub from the last wash -intakes water for the wash or rinse -whirs 2-3 times prepping for the cycle -begins to wash, quietly -expels at the end of the wash or rinse.
He used to: -expel residual water -intake new water for wash or rinse ---drain pump would cut in WHILE still filling -machine would whir once, realize it didn't have enough water -perform a brief top-up intake shot -begin to wash and whistle and GRIND (this is where I would have to add the water) -expels water from wash or rinse, and start all over again.
It's a good dishwasher and it will work, but the right model parts have to be in place!
How deep do you want to get into this?It sounds like the wash pump motor bearings that are worn.You can pull the unit out flip it over and wd40 the bearings in the motor or you can replace the bearings.Try to lube them first.
I wonder if there is enough air circulating around your equipment??
My DVD recorder makes a sound unless I open
the doors on the cabinet that contains all of my equipment.
The cable company says it is a fan to cool down the units.
