Check the machines water pump bearings, if rusted and damaged due to leaking water seal you will have to replace the pump as it is a sealed unit.

Try turning your tap off a bit till the noise stops but the dishwasher still fills, it can just be due to a bit too much pressure on your water valve.
hpe this helps

SOURCE: LG dishwasher is whistling a high pitch tune

It is difficult to be specific without knowing the model number of your LG dishwasher.

On newer LG models, the most common cause of noises is from debris stuck in the lower filter assembly area. Recommend you remove the lower spray arm and the screws that holds the filter sub-assembly in. After removing the assembly, inspect with a flashlight to search for any debris that is jammed in that area. Also rinse out the filter as best possible to remove any thing you see in there. Reassemble and test.

SOURCE: Our LG LDF7920st dishwasher (6 months old)makes a whistling noise

Hey, consider the float assembly!

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!

SOURCE: High pitched whistle

First a suggestion...try this guys solution with the impeller blade or ordering a different part. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/dishwasher-repair/318842-high-pitched-squel.html
Now the rant...NEVER BUYING AN LG ANYTHING AGAIN!!!! Just talked to LG customer service they are worthless. I have the LDS5811 with the same problem. If you aren't going to man up and back your product when there are major flaws I don't want to buy from you. I have spent 250 bucks servicing this unit and it is only 4 years old RIDICULOUS. LG you better get your act together. I am not going to buy another LG appliance unless they start owning up to their faulty manufacturing. This dishwasher was not cheap when I bought it and has been nothing but a head ache. First the wiring harness got loose and shorted the board, because they embedded the wiring in the insulation in the door. Now this stupid noise that tortures any animal within a mile. My home warranty won't fix it "till it breaks." Back into ear purgatory my family goes till I can get this part.

I have a LG model no LD-2040WH dishwasher that is troublesome at the moment. During the washing cycle, it gives a very high pitched screeching noise. It has now displayed an error code E1. I have take


The problem could be the washer motor bearing. LG motors have the impeller unit coupled to the motor and the water seal between the motor and impeller is a problem. The drop of water that leaks ends up on the bearing and it eventually gives problems. This can be seen by close inspection of the front bearing for slight rust indications .They use poor quality bearings but replacing the bearing is easy BUT you need to replace the water seal as this is the cause of the problem. Unfortunately the water seal is part of the plastic impeller unit and must be replaced. Not necessary to replace the whole motor as the bearing is easily replace and cheap. (the noise made by this fault is more of a slightly high pitch grinding / whine)

Why would the washer cylce be really noisy?


High pitch noisy = wash pump bearings shot.
Replace main pump. Big job though.
Need to disconnect almost everything, turn it upside down, sides off, bottom off etc.
Might be better off to get a repairer.

Speed queen noise when on spin


follow this test and fix it. God bless you


  1. MagnetronIf your microwave is emanating high pitched or growling noises during operation, the magnetron could be going bad. Normally a nearly silent part, the magnetron uses high voltage and induces the frequency required to cook food. Although normally not a safety hazard to operate, this is a sign that the magnetron is failing and will need to be replaced as soon as possible.
  2. Exhaust fan motorIf your microwave is making a very loud humming noise during operation, it could possibly be the exhaust fan motor. If defective the part will need to be replaced to silence the appliance once more.
  3. Stirrer motorAnother leading cause of a noisy microwave is an expired stirrer motor. With use this part becomes worn and makes a loud grinding noise, which is usually a leading indicator that the part needs to be replaced. The stirrer is a metal blade that is slowly turned by the motor. This action disperses the microwave energy in a random pattern, which heats the food evenly. If the stirrer motor is determined to be nearing expiration, it should be replaced to halt the grinding noise.
  4. Turntable motorA very common cause for a noisy microwave is a worn out turntable motor. This is a relatively easy repair and will put an end to the noise once replaced.

High pitched noise during hot water only


This problem is usually caused by LOW water pressure going in the washer.
1. Remove hot water hose and flush all debree from water line.
2. Change water filters and you'll be good to go.

GOOD LUCK!

Noisy dishwasher


SOME DETERGENT DISPENSERS ARE ACTIVATED BY A SOLENOID THAT IS ELECTRICALLY CHARGED. IT WOULD BE POSSIBLE THAT IS WHERE THE NOISE IS COMING FROM. IF YOU WANTED TO CHECK, REMOVE THE DOOR PANEL AND SEE IF THERE IS A ROUND ITEM AT THE DISPENSER ASSEMBLY WITH TWO WIRES ATTACHED TO IT. PUT THE DISHWASHER INTO A CYCLE AND WHEN THE NOISE APPEARS, GENTLY PRESS ON THE SOLENOID TO SEE IF THAT IS WHERE THE NOISE IS COMING FROM. REPLACE THE SOLENOID TO SOLVE THE ISSUE.

BE SURE ALL RETAINING SCREWS ARE TIGHT.

Dishwasher Making Loud High Pitched Noise.


A loud high pitch whine while running the dishwasher means that there is something caught in the chopper assembly. To get to the chopper assembly you need to take the racks out and take the pump apart from the inside of the dishwasher. The chopper assembly looks like a metal grate with holes in it. And it might not even be stuck in the grate but somewhere in the pump area due to the water being pumped out, so the best idea is to take the whole thing apart and clean everywhere. However I do not recommend doing this unless you are completely certain you will remember where the screws and gaskets go, otherwise you risk damaging your pump or house from a leak or improper installation. You have been warned.
