Need to put suction plate back together

We took out the bottom parts of our dishwasher to find out what was making such an awful noise.  The wash impeller was broken.  We've bought the piece to replace it, but now can't remember how to put everything back in place :|  Can you help??

Sudden loud vibration from the door of my Whirlpool dishwasher. Replacing the part didn't help.

see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Drain Pump If the dishwasher is loud during operation, the drain pump might be defective or might have some debris in it. This is a common problem.
Circulation Pump If the dishwasher is loud during operation, and the noise is a continuous drone similar in speed to the circulation pump sound, it's likely that the circulation pump motor bearings have failed. Once this happens the circulation pump will have to be replaced, the bearings are not repairable.

Drain Impeller If the dishwasher is loud during operation, the drain impeller might be broken, or there might be debris in the pump. Generally, to gain access to the pump the top of the pump housing will have to be removed.

Pump and Motor Assembly If the dishwasher is loud the motor bearings, drain impeller or wash impeller might have worn out. All three of these components are part of the pump and motor assembly. It may be possible to replace one of the impellers, but the motor bearings cannot be repaired. In that case the pump and motor assembly will need to be replaced.

Wash Impeller The wash impeller is a small, plastic blade. The motor spins the impeller forcing water through the spray arms to clean the dishes. If one or more blades has broken off of the impeller the dishwasher is loud. The impeller can also scrape against the pump housing if it is damaged, warped or bent.

Circulation and Drain Pump Motor If the dishwasher is loud during operation, and the noise is a continuous drone similar in speed to the motor sound, it's likely that the circulation and drain pump motor bearings have failed. Once this happens the motor will have to be replaced, the bearings are not repairable.

Water Inlet Valve The water inlet valve is an electrically controlled water valve. When it is new, the water inlet valve is very quiet. Over time, the diaphragm inside the valve deteriorates and deforms. This deformation interacts with the water rushing in and can cause a loud vibration, buzzing, squealing or other noises. If the dishwasher is loud during the filling cycle, replacing the water inlet valve may solve the problem.

Noise from the bottom during wash cycles, If this the motor bearings would it be better I get a new dishwasher?

IF it is the motor yes it may very well better off getting a new dishwasher..the cost of the part would be appx. $ 175 plus labor and service to charges for a service company to install it may be as much as $300-350
However their are any number of possible things that could be making the noise,such a cherry pit,a piece of broken glass,i small object that entered the tub from the countertop above the dishwasher or so many more thing caught in the pump and rubbing on the wash/drain it would be a good idea to take apart the pump asm. first to see if some object may be caught, before replacing d/w

I have a Frigidaire Gallery dishwasher with model # GLDB958JB0 and it started to make a screeching noise only after a few mins into the wash cycle. I took out the filter and made sure there was noting...

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

The problem is with the impeller or the chopper assembly that is causing this screeching noise. You can take apart the bottom front access panel and clean the drain pump assembly completely and check for any broken parts inside that need replacement. If the problem returns then replacing the impeller/drain pump-motor assembly is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Dishwasher makes a grinding noise when you start it and when you open the door it appears as if the bottom arm is not spinning

if the motor is grinding and not washing the impeller may be broken or there is an obstruction you will have to remove the motor to check this if impeller faulty purchase new part and fit good luck

Excessive motor noise all parts in place correctly DD603 bottom dishwasher won't turn on top dishwasher just makes noise

Disassemble the pump and check the impeller. I would bet it's broken and the noise is caused by pieces rattling around. (I'm inferring that the part on top that isn't turning is the spray arm; that won't turn if there isn't any water spraying out of it.)

Loud Buzzing noise

Sounds like something may have got past your filter and is touching the main pump impeller eg piece of broken glass or piece of plastic.I,ve even seen a spoon touching the impeller. You may have to take the bottom off the machine and remove the pump if you can,t see anything under the filter,Hope this helps. Regards Stefan.

The first step in a dishwasher's program cycle is activating the drain pump. If there are obstructing objects in the impeller it could make noise, also if the drain pump's bearings/motor is damaged. I don't know what you meant by taking out bottom part, maybe it was the drain pump you checked?

If you didn't this is normally an easily accessible component, when you have it out you can also check that the impeller rotates freely and that it feels and sounds ok in the bearings.

Maybe there is a possibility to attach a sound file here, it would help to diagnose the problem.

Kenmore quiet pak III dishwasher has a whining noise

Most of these dishwashers have separate circulation and drain pumps and there is a good chance that there is an issue with the circulation pump impeller issue under the lower wash arm. The bottom panels under the door can be removed to check it out.

Dishwasher fills, when the pump is supposed to start it just whir

Hello, sounds like a broken wash impeller or a stripped drive impeller (the piece that fits inside the impeller). These two parts are driven by the wash motor and propell the water through the spray arms. good luck

Diswasher motor making noise during wash cycle

It could be the impeller on the motor. The impeller fits over the shaft of the motor and might have split/broken up. That funny noise is probably the shaft spinning inside the damage impeller. Fortunately the impeler is fairly inexpensive and easy to replace. I believe there are one or two parts/covers to remove that are held in by a roughly half dozen torx screws.
