Kenmore Ultrawash Quiet Guard 5 making buzzing/grinding noise

I have a kenmore ultrawash with quiet guard 5 that started making string buzzing/grinding noise once the water is filled in the dishwasher. I have tried the normal wash cycle and the china cycle - same noise. There is nothing stuck in in the agitator arms anywhere. The dishwasher is just around 3 years old.

I have a very similar dishwasher, with a very similar problem. I fixed it by removing debris from the water evacuator pump located towards the front of the bottom of the machine (the last motor before the drain hose. In my case, grape stems had clogged it up. Once emptied, it purrs once again. NOTE: don't disassemble the motor, just flush it out, there is an o-ring gasket that is a bear to re-install.

The film is the stuff and the old soap backing up in the dishwasher. There is no cure for this. You can have them come out and it won't get fixed because it will happen again. They did not put a large enough drain/disposal on the models. Essentially you are eating old soap - goodness only knows what is in it.

Kenmore Ultrawash Quiet guard 3; can't get the clean light to turn off to be able to start cycle


Try pressing normalwash-heatdry-normalwash-heatdry-normalwash-heatdry-normalwash-heat then all the lights come on.
Let run for a little bit. then keep pressing the start button... until the unit shuts off, then try running a cycle.
The control board has a memory in it. So if you have cold water running in it one time. It will take longer to warm up. Your memory in the control board says its taking to long to warm up. Shutting down thinking there is something wrong with your heating cycle.

Loud Buzzing Sound from Dishwasher


have you ever seen green led "Clean" light flashing? before or about the same time the buzzing sound started? and if so that would indicate that the control senses a fault in the temperature rise during the heating cycle and that the electronic control could be reset by initiating a service diagnostic cycle.(which is what you were trying to do) pls reread your manual there are times during that sequence that some buttons have to be pushed at the same time and within a certain amount of time..possible that your machine also has a bad timer which would give you a buzzing noise..if thats the case I would recommend replacing the cpu or control board..or the machin all together..The Kenmore Ultra Wash Quiet Guard name is sears but whirpool has the contract to produce all "kenmore products.hope that helps.

The IRONY of my Quiet Guard!! SO LOUD!!!!


Yes the wash arm can be removed to get to the sump area. Take the model number for your dishwasher and enter it into a site like partselect.com. There you can get a blown up diagram of the components that need to be removed to get to the cause of the grind noise. Usually a seed or some other hard object has found its way down there.
