Dishwasher making strange noise

My Dishwasher AEG 40740 makes some strange noise. After I close the door and dishwasher starts working everything is OK and all I can hear is water hitting the dishes. After about 20 seconds this noise starts like scratching or end of water going down the drain. This happens every 5 seconds. If I open and close the door everything is fine for 20-30 seconds and then starts again. Please help.

SOURCE: Dishwasher not spraying

It could be a motor or a pump issue. The dishwasher has a motor that attached to a pump which forces the water up into the sprayer arms and during the drain cycle, it pushes the water out of the dishwasher. The motor (and pump) located beneath the dishwasher. Good luck!

SOURCE: 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.

my dishwasher started making a load noise last night found out it was the pump . It was a easy fix to access the pump you need to remove the outer side of the door and the bottom cover .then you can see the pump .to remove it you need to remove the clear hose in front of it .it just pulls out of the tank sealed by a o-ring move it out of the way next unplug the wires to the pump .then you will see a plastic clip on top the pump just push the clip and turn the pump clock wise about a half turn and pull it out replace new one make. sure you get all the water out off the bottom tray before running theres a swicth that will keep the pump running if leak

SOURCE: water not going in

This is a little late for the OP. But, I had the same problem over Thanksgiving of 2008. I searched online and saw that other people had the same problem, but there were no solutions posted. So, I paid $130 for a service tech to come fix the problem - maybe this will save you some time and money.

The solution was simple...pour boiling water (I boiled about a half gallon of water in a cooking pot) straight into the pump where the water sprays out of. You don't have to pull your dishwasher out and no tools are needed. Just open the door, pull out the lower roller tray, remove the bottom spray fin (just pull straight up), and pour the boiling water straight into the hole where the bottom spray fin was attached to. Next, put everything back in place, push the Power switch on, select a wash mode, and close the door. The dishwasher should start spraying water inside as usual.

The service tech told me that there are only two pumps in this dishwasher...one to pump the water in (the one that had the problem) and one to pump the water out. When you don't use the dishwasher frequently, the seal in the wash pump seizes up (sticks together). You can hear the motor humming, but the pump isn't able to send the water up into the spray fins. By pouring boiling water into the pump, it helps to break that stickiness and allows the pump to start sending water up into the spray fins. The solution is to run your dishwasher at least once a week. Even if you don't have much to wash, run a rinse cycle to let all the parts move and stay loose.

One other tip the tech told me is to pour a cup of white vinegar into the pump when you go away on vacation and the dishwasher won't be used for a week or more. This should keep the seals from sticking together. I haven't tried this yet.

Hope this helps.

AEG 40850 - pump noise and running for long time, eventually showing error 20


There is a problem with drainage. Check the drain line connected to the disposal or peatrap. Make sure it is not plugged. Otherwise you can disconnect the drain line and put a wet vac on it to try to clear the hose

I have an AEG F55002ViOP dishwasher. It's making a strange grinding sound and showing error code 30. Can anyone advise how to solve this please.


Error "i30" means that water remains in base because leakage or overflow. In this case, in order to prevent flooding, drain pump running continuously.
When we talk about AEG dishwasher, drain pump works even the power is turned off (must be connected to the wall outlet, otherwise anti-flooding system will not work).
The noise what you heard during operation indicates that something is blocking the drain pump.
Remedy: you should first remove the water from the bottom of the dishwasher and determine leakage then check why the drain pump makes noise.

If you work around the dishwasher, you always take care that appliance must be disconnected from the power supply.

Good luck.

Favorit 40010 vi dishwasher the machine door opens during the wash except on eco 50 wash


Strange it remains closed on one stage? Usually a door that opens by itself is due to misalignment, and then gain water will leak onto the floor. If someone banged into the side of the door and moved the washer a slight bit, the locking tab under the work counter may not be in a positive position. If the tab is bent slightly up, the door may barely make contact and lock when in operation. A simple movement of the washer could pop the door open. Other than that, any electrical dysfunction would require a professional servicemans attention.

Aeg favorit 40740 sensor logic dishwasher Not heating up


FYI: I ran in a similar situation with my Ikea dishwasher last week.
It started did some stuff but ended early and cold.

In the end it was just because I forgot to refill the soda.
The drain was all clogged together. A quick cleaning fixed my problem.

Only afterwards of course I noticed that an LED was on and there where some white deposits on the dishwashers lid. There was also still some water when I opened the dishwasher.

When I was reading about similar problems, it also happens often that some solderings of the relay go bad. A more or less practical person can check and solve this rather fast. (Because I didn't notice the clogged drain at first, I verified mine in let's say well below 30 min, they seemed fine)

I hope you get your problem solved.

My AEG dishwasher - Favorit no. 60870 sensorlogic - is making a strange noise when on - what should I do?


I don't have the answer - but mine has been doing this too. There's now a metalic/electical smell that has me worried so I've resorted to a basin of water and fairy liquid! Did you solve your problem?

Dishwasher wan't fill with water


The water valve may look fine but the solenoid may not be opening to allow water in. You said that everything else works fine except no water supply to the dishwasher. This sounds like a bad soleniod valve. Check for continuity on the valve with an ohms meter after you start it. Be careful.

Strange noise from my Bosch Dishwasher SHU66C02UC/14


It just the pump noise. Since your dishwasher works properly you can ignore this noise.
