    i open the drain pump,the little impeller was the source of the rattlinhg noise,it kept coming loose.i hot glue it just to make sure it was the problem and the noise is gone and the water is draining once again.i would take it out and epoxy it with a waterproof epoxy in the future.thanks guys

    a better and more secure solution for reattaching the water drain pump impeller,first remove the pump,open it,remove the gray part from the silver part(the magnet)by using a flat head screw driver and softly pry the clips up,the middle gray part that holds the armature will come off easily.next look at the tip where the impeller attaches,remove the very small o-ring,a small groove should be seen,now place the impeller on the shaft and drill a small hole in the impeller and insert a small screw,only far enough to touch the shaft.the impeller should turn before the shaft turns.re-install in reverse order and you should be perfect.good washing.

On spin cycle sounds like change or rocks spinning around in drum.


Could be a bad bearing or something loose on the drum that doesn't rattle until you get up to spin speed. Look for something like pins, nails or screws stuck in the holes of the drum, or possibly under the protuberances (fins) inside the drum. Does the sound occur all through the spin cycle or only at top speed?

Rattling noise in spin, spin problems becoming more pronounced. control panel lights flash but 0 error codes. unplug 2 reset, probl repeats


If this noise is happening while it's trying to drain water then you have something floating around in the lump. Coins are very common. If the noise is happening during a spin cycle and more pronounced during the final high spin cycle, you have bearing or spin tub issues. Time to go shopping.

Fridgeair dishwasher not working making loud sound. water comes in and I can make it drain out but washer does not start


Hello

bearings in the heater fan may get worn out or rust. If this happens, it may become very noisy, either grinding on the bearings, or scraping against the rust. If this happens you need to replace the fan motor. Sometimes, a fan blade may come loose, and you need to replace it.
Sometimes it's the motor that makes the noise you hear. The motor has bearings in it which may become worn or get rusty. When the bearings get worn, they allow the shaft to wobble which can get quite loud. If there is a spin seal leak, water may get inside the motor, washing the bearing grease away. If the spin seal is leaking, you'll notice water leaking from under the dishwasher. There is also a disc attached to the top of the motor called a slinger. It sometimes breaks off and spins around the motor's shaft while it turns, causing some noises. You will need to replace the motor if the bearings are bad. You also need to replace the motor if the slinger is broken as well.

Newer dishwashers may make a squealing or rattling noise on the first run. This is because it has not had any water in it yet, and the motor seals are dry. You may hear this in a unit that hasn't been run in a week or more as well. You should operate the dishwasher regularly to keep the sump water from getting smelly, and to keep the seals lubricated. You can add a quart of water to the sump before running it.

Rattling noises may be produced by dishes rattling inside the dishwasher due to the water pressure from the sprayer arms on the dishes. To determine if the rattling is a loading issue, run the unit empty. If the sound is persistent, it may be that there is debris in the pump.

dishwasher water-inlet valves are noted to make a hum that lasts about 60-90 seconds several times during a washing cycle. This hum is a different hum than the sound of the motor running.

A rhythmic knocking or thumping sound may be caused the sprayer arms hitting something as they go around and around. Rearrange the dishes and resume the wash.

A clunking or clanking may be heard when the detergent cup opens; while a clicking sound may be produced by the timer or electronic control panel.

A solenoid makes a snap sound when it opens. This happens about six times during each load.

Pipes rattling or banging may be caused by a water hammer effect. Water hammer sounds are caused by a valve closing in the system, and yet the water in the pipe is still flowing because of its kinetic energy. The sound is caused by the water slamming into the closed section of pipe. A plumber can install an anti-hammer device.

Small objects can sometimes get stuck in the pump. When this occurs, you'll need to open the pump and then remove the item that is making the noise or replace the pump. The dishwasher pump is usually mounted directly to the motor and runs off the motor as well. The pump is also attached to the bottom of your dishwasher.

Whirlpool Top Loader Stopped working mid-cycle & rattling


It sounds like you have a broken motor coupling. If you manually advance the dial does it drain? The washer is a direct drive model that uses an electric drive motor to run the gearcase (transmission) and the drain pump. Even with the coupler broken (and worse-case scenario - the gearcase) the washer will still drain due to the way it is designed.

If the washer will fill and drain, but won't agitate or spin, this is usually a sign that the motor coupling has broken. The noise of the motor engaging, rattling noises, lack of agitation and ability to still drain are other common symptoms. This is a common fail item with this model washer through normal wear and tear. Newer versions of the coupler are more resilient and resist breaking. The following link explains how to replace one:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385252-replacing_motor_coupling_whirlpool_top

The motor coupling is located between the drive motor and the transmission and takes the place of a drive belt. They do wear out and can break. The replacement part number is included in the link I provided and is an improved upgraded coupling that is more resilient. It should last longer.

A replacement coupler can be purchased on line at appliancepartspros.com for about $11. Just use the part number in the link and "Search by Part Number" for your search criteria.
If you confirmed that the washer will not drain, you could have a pump that has something caught in it. The drain on these washers on have one moving part - the impeller. If something gets caught in it, the pump will not drain. You can access the pump by following this link:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r397094-replacing_water_pump

Use the steps in the link provided to access the drain pump and remove the hoses to check inside the pump for any foreign objects (underwires from bras, undergarments and panty hose are common items). If the wash tub is still full of water an easy way to drain it with no mess is to use a wet/dry shop vac to pull the water from the tub. Simple gravity works too by removing one of the drain hoses, but is not recommended if the washer is in your home. These wash tubs have a 35 gallon capacity. If you have no shop vac and cannot risk allowing the washer to drain by pulling one of the drain hoses, you need to bail.

If the pump is defective, the part number is 3363892 and can be purchased at appliancepartspros.com for about $42.

If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Motor makes loud rattling noise during rinse cycle


could be the coupler and the only way to truely check it is to take the pump, then the motor off. But it seems strange to me that you say it works fine. Is it spinning? usually when the coupler breaks it sounds horrible and usually will not spin but it will drain.I would check the coupler again.

Noise at end of drain cycle.


There aren't really all that many energetically moving parts inside a dishwasher - fewer still that are active during the drain cycle. Follow the drain hose into the machine, and you should come upon the drain pump. Have a look inside that, and in the hose that runs between it and the sump it drains. My best guess is that some piece of buoyant debris is sitting in that line, and, as the water level drops, is lowered into the pump impellor. Usual warnings about disconnecting power before putting your hands inside the machine apply - and be aware that you're likely to find a bit of dirty water sitting around in the pump. A.
