SOURCE: Frigidaire dishwasher does not clean

the start switch in the motor is probably bad,it could also be the motor relay.if you can get to the motor run the unit and while it hums try to turn the motor.it also could be something is stuck in the motor let me know.

SOURCE: Dishwasher starts to fill then just hums

Sounds like a motor problem. Behind the chopper is an access to the impeller, try turning the impeller or the chopper blade and see if the motor will rotate. If it doesn't, then something is stuck preventing the motor from running.

SOURCE: LOUD HUMMING AFTER WATER FILLS AT START OF CYCLE

Sounds like you have something in the sump/motor. I could lead you through it on a chat session but too much just to type. Let me know if you would like me to do so.

SOURCE: Asko dishwasher won't start, just hums and gets hot

Get this every few months - don't know the problem but we disconnect from unit and tilt the dishwasher and loads of stinky water spills out - from where I don't know. Then just **** all the water out of the drain bit with a chicken baster - primative but has worked every time so far. Keep trying to get water out until doesn't hum when switched on.

Dishwasher fills with water. then hums but dosen't clean


Sounds like water-level sensor is ok as it stops filling then 'hums'. I'd (carefully) check the connections to the connections between the level-sensor and the wash motor start relay. Could be motor is bad or something is causing it to become 'jammed'. Before you begin opening the appliance, I'd attempt to vacuum out the water or try putting the control in the last position to cause it to try to pump out the water.

Check the drain pump it is located in the front of you unit .Disconnect power or flip breaker .Remove the front kick plate then there is a metal plate above that is held on with 4 screws remove that and reach in and press lever on pump and turn counter clockwise it will come right out .Then check for items in the pump area could be glass. Hope it is helpfull

Dishwasher fills with water then hums


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

When the dishwasher fills then it means that the control and the water inlet valve are fine, hum sound itself indicates that the motor is bad and needs replacement. If you hear a hum sound from the bottom of the unit then it is the motor that is bad and if the hum comes from the control then it is the timer that is bad and needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Humming noise after water fill and will not wash


Hi. this is a failed timer device. simply replacing the timer control module will eliminate these issues you are having.

Dishwasher keeps stoping


Favorite for bosch is the water inlet modual which monitors the water flow in could be faulty, If incorrect pulses take place the motor wont proceed. Otherwise listen for a hum after water stops filling. If there is a hum, the main wash pump is jambed and has to be sorted out.
