Question about Dishwashers
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!

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

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.
