Recently had a similar experience. Sounded like grinding noise for a period of time. Then motor stopped. Motor bearings were shot. Had motor replaced under P.S.E.&G. Service contract. This utility company offers appliance contracts for the home. P.S. serviceman indicated they will only do that once for the contract. This is an expensive part. If you don't have access to a contract be ready for 130.00 or more for a new Motor and more to have it installed if you are not handy. Service man removed front kick plate and dropped motor without removing dishwasher.

    It's also entirely possible that a piece of debris got down into the pump and that the macerator or pump impeller is hitting it as it spins. Disassembly and inspection is you best option.

Not draining completely out and is noisy when running


You might have some hard debris (glass, hard plastic, something else) down in the sump and pump areas. The pump will have to be disassembled to find and fix it. If you're not a handyman, then you probably should call a professional dishwasher repairman.

Dishwasher very noisy as it goes through it cycle. think its the water pump? sounds like bearings or impeller rubbing off the housing? not as noisy when the machine is cycling empty?


Could be bearings or something caught inside the impellar. If you take the wash arms off and run a cycle with water, it will "sometimes" blow out anything in the impellar. Undercounter machines are usually problematic - recommend avoiding them when possible.

My dishwasher is not draining off the water properly. It has flooded the kitchen once already. I can here the pump running, but it is a bit noisy. The bottom of the dishwasher is still full of water after...


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

Dishwasher not draining completely problem usually occurs due to clogged/blocked drain hose or the drain pump not working. First try to clean the drain hose and drain pump filter for any clogs, then check drain pump operation. If the problem returns after cleaning then it is the drain pump that needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Has become very noisy during sensing cycle.


Either the motor is failing to pump water or there is too much soap in the system. Add 1/4 cup veg oil and run again.

NOISY DISHWASHER WHIRLPOOL GU3600


If your dishwasher seems noisy, check these:

Water-inlet valve
Motor
Heater fan
Pump
Water-inlet valve An aging water-inlet valve can sometimes fail slowly, rather than all at once. It can shudder on and off rapidly, causing the incoming water lines to shake, rumble, and rattle--sometimes violently. If yours is doing this, replace the inlet valve.

Motor If it's the motor that's noisy, either of these may be the "culprit:"

  • As motor bearings wear out, they can become quite loud when the motor runs. They wear out quickly if they frequently get wet, because the water washes away the motor bearing grease. Bearings can get wet if the spin seal is defective. Then there will also be water leaking onto the floor beneath the dishwasher. Replace the seal if it leaks (read about the main tub seal in the "It leaks" section, later).

  • If, from beneath the dishwasher, you can see a round, plastic disc that's mounted to the top of the motor (a "slinger"), it may have broken free of the motor shaft. If so, it could be rattling around the shaft while the motor is running. If that's the problem, you need to replace the motor.

Heater fan If the heater fan bearings are rusted or worn, they may squeal, or scrape loudly during the drying cycle. If this is the problem, replace the fan motor. Alternatively, the fan blade may be loose. If so, you need to replace it.

Pump Small fruit pits, toothpicks, and fragments of glass sometimes get stuck in the pump. When this happens, open the pump and remove the debris. The pump is usually mounted directly to the motor, then attached to the bottom of the dishwasher.

To get to the pump, you usually need to remove the lower rack, the spray arms, and the spray arm support from the inside of your dishwasher. A dishwasher pump isn't obvious. Look for an impeller--a round, plastic fan blade-type device that spins around and pushes the water toward the drain. When you can see the drain impeller, you should be able to see the clogging debris.

Very noisy pump


Ya, almost certainly you need to replace the motor/pump assembly.

Hotpoint Superplus 7822 dishwasher


At the beginning of the cycle the dishwasher is attempting to pump out any residue water in the waste pipe and sump. It could be that the motor is sticking but you would probably also suffer from it not draining properly.
It may just be noisy pump. I have a similar model and it is also quite noisy but nothing extraordinary.
When the dishwasher is pumping out at the end of the washing cycle it may be quieter when there is water in the pump/pipes but then gets noisy as it 'pumps air'.
