HI, under the sump housing, there is a major issue concerning the circulation motor. there is a wash impeller that is connected to the circulation motor, via drive shaft and stud. this assembly has been stripped, due to a possible jam that was caused by a foreign object. the impeller is basically, producing the grinding sound you are hearing, you will need to replace this damaged wash impeller asap. it will ruin the motor soon if it is not removed.

This wash impeller is responsible for the flow of water during the wash cycle. it is not completely off the shaft but, eventually , it will break off soon, causing major damage to the circulation motor.

Loud sounds


Many Frigidaire dishwashers come with the promise of being the "quietest dishwasher in its class," according to Frigidaire. However, a quiet dishwasher doesn't necessarily mean that the dishwasher is silent, as some noises are normal. It can take some troubleshooting at times to determine if a noise coming from the dishwasher is typical or if it indicates a larger problem Listen for the sound of water filling and draining throughout the wash cycle. These sounds are normal and do not indicate an issue.

  • 2 Pay attention to the drain motor, which operates at the beginning of each cycle. This noise should be fairly quiet and should not sound like a loud, grinding or banging sound.
  • 3 Note that the sound will change when the wash cycle moves between the lower and middle spray arms. This sound should be temporary and fairly quiet.
  • 4 Look for hard items in the dishwasher grinder or filter if a loud crunching, buzzing or grinding sound is heard. The dishwasher can typically grind up these items within one or two cycles, but the item may be lifted out and discarded to eliminate the sound.
  • 5 Remove the bottom rack and spray arms from the bottom of the dishwasher if there is a loud noise coming from the dishwasher that does not resolve itself. Look inside for the impeller, which is round and spins. Remove any debris that may be clogging up the impeller or pump.

    Frigidaire Model FDB780RCB0 I am getting water in the machine but it seems the arms are not turning what can I do to get that fixed?


    The pump in the dishwasher is supposed to provide enough water pressure to turn the spray arms and make them rotate. The pump is faulty and not giving enough pressure or the arms are stuck.
    Try spinning the arms, if they rotate smoothly, you will need to replace the pump.

    Loud Noise from Maytag JetClean Dishwasher


    Here is the parts diagram for your model:
    DWU8260ABX (http://click.linksynergy.com/fs-bin/click?id=YO6223WzStY&offerid=122738.560449854&type=10&subid=)

    Look at diagram #7 the upper spray arm should just unsnap.

    The grinding, clicking sound would be your blower motor in diagram #1.

    Most likely there is debris at the pump impeller. This model has a problem with debris and grease accumulation at the pump inlet. I have no idea how it gets past the screen but it does. Remove the transfer tube on the back wall, the lower sprayer, and screen assembly. Clean out the debris and reverse installation.

    Top arm won't turn


    Approximatly how old is your dishwasher?
    First step, clean the filter that is underneath the lower sprayer arm. You will probably need to remove several screws to clen it.
    While the filter is off, inspect for debris in the pump area (watch out for broken glass that are almost invisible in the water left behind.)
    Inspect the impeller for damage and repair/replace.
    Reassemble the filter and spray arm - retest.
    If the problems remain, the problem is often a failing (weak) pump motor and that is your next step unless you are going to replace with an Enery Star model.
    Good Luck!

    My dishwasher is not washing dishes on the top rack...


    HI,

    The top rack is not cleaning because of low water pressure from the wash motor to the upper spray arm.
    Assuming the top spray arms are clear of debris, remove the lower spray arm to access the wash motor. Remove the 4 torx screws and the filter (accumulator assembly). Remove the torx screw and the inlet protector that covers the chopper assembly. Make sure the chopper is not broken (broken chopper will fill with debris and block water flow). While holding the chopper blade, reach inside the "D" shaped opening on top of the motor and spin the wheel/motor by hand in each direction to make sure either the chopper gear or the motor gear that drives the chopper is not broken. Replace the chopper if necessary . If the motor gear is broken, replace the sump and motor assembly . Remove any debris from the sump area in the process.
    You don't have to shut the power off to the dishwasher because the door will be open, but if you feel more comfortable, do so.


    thanks,

    Frigidaire FDB740RCS0 Upper Armnot Turning


    the motor stops and runs in the opposite direction to pump water up to the top rack. you first need to listen for the motor to stop and start. if you hear that open the door and try to tell if water was coming out of the top spray arm.
