My Energy Star/Built-in

My poor black-slow as Christmas and only 3-4 years old-it is making a God Awful Noise. Sounds like a loud grinding noise-could it be that the motor is going out. It has always been too slow and was never quiet and never got the dishes dry enough! What has happened to the good old Kitchenaids of years gone by? Are these perhaps made in China like everything else?

Dishwasher is making a loud noise

Sounds like there is something in the filter trap that is right before the mini disposal that is a fan blade, on top of the motor.

Making a god awful noise when i start/run it.. what could be causing it and how do i fix it

Sounds like your machine needs an EXORCISM. I am not exactly sure what a god awful noise is, but to the real solution, you may attempt to remove the rear cover and attempt to oil all of your rotation parts. Be careful not to lubricate any belts that you see as this can cause a loud squealing noise. I just had to put that first sentence in there. Never heard anyone use that statement before.

It is starting to make loud grinding noises


It does sound as if you have an issue with the pump it may have broken glass or some sort of debris that has already done internal damage to the pump impellor,especially if the noise has been there for a while.The one option is an inspection of the pump for wear or blockage.Hope this has helped.

Good Luck.

When washer is started make loud grinding noise

Very likely the bearings in the motor have begun to fail. You can replace the motor, but for a 15 year old DW, sometimes it makes better sense to just buy a new one. Depends on the features the old DW has, vs new, vs motor replacement cost.

Loud noise

Check for bones/glass/ceramic from chipped plates in the food chopper (for lack of a better term). You'll need to disassemble the entire lower arm unit.

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.

Dishwasher making loud noise

Newer washers are designed with a food grinder inside to help grind up large pieces of food. What you are hearing is the grinder doing its job. You do not need to worry about the noise. It should go away after a while as the food particle is ground up.
