Screeching sound during cycle


Check for debris in the pump impeller. Your owner's manual will describe how to
1. Remove baskets
2, Remove wash arm
3. Rotate (inner) lock ring on stainless steel bottom plate to release and remove it.
4. Rotate top impeller by hand to feel for rough spots indicating debris in lower impeller.
5. Rotate motor assembly lock ring to release rotor assembly and clear debris from sump.
6. Reassemble in reverse order and check operation.

This can also occur with a drawer that is not run often (less than once or twice per month) and indicates a dry bearing surface. Most often running a rinse and hold once or twice frees this up and corrects the problem. Drawers work best when operated once a week or more.

How do I remove the screw holding the impeller to the drain motor?


(old question but might help someone in future)
How to take screw of dish washer impeller:

Impeller heats up when the heater at the bottom runs... so maybe impeller melts a bit and sticks on the screw.

Heat up the impeller with a hairdryer for 5 min and try rotating the screw both sides! (this will soften the impeller a little bit so screw can can rotate and come out easily!.
Hold the impeller (somehow); using a nail, some special tool or inserting a screw driver to the side of the impeller.
Unscrew it!

I was trying to take the screw(1SZZED3006A) of the impeller(5911ED3003A) (motor 4681ED1004B) from LG LDS4821ST and had no idea that they put REVERSE THREADED screws in these things, ended up melting the impeller with a torch and then figured that it was a REVERSE THREADED screw!.

Note: I wasted $65 on repair guy who came in and said "you need the sump assembly, recirculation motor, motor assembly" and gave a $368+tax estimate. He didn't even check anything just saw a broken part that I already new. I didn't fix the part myself because I wasn't able to take out the screw at first attempt. This time I took the whole sump assembly out thinking I could use more strength this way but the problem was totally unthinkable at that time.

Happy fixing!

My dishwasher surges at the start and end of the cycle but still washes ok. Is this a problem, it doesn't sound right?


Some dishwashers depending on their programming rotate the motor impeller backwards at the start and end of the cycle to clear blockages, Also they can sound like they are surging if the water is a bit harder than it expects,
Keep and eye on the machine, as long as it doesn't demonstrate any other odd behavior it will be fine.

Front loading washer, kenmore 417.42052100 won't completely drain and leaves a tub full of water. Has been getting worse over the last week and now won't drain at all. Took off front panel to try...


The drain filter/coin trap is blocked or the pump is no longer working. The filter/trap is located inside the big black hose that runs from the bottom of the tub to the pump and hence the name tub-to-pump hose. Clean the filter and inspect the pump impeller for damage or restriction.

Disconnect power then remove the screws attaching the bottom front panel to the cabinet then pull the panel down and off. Once the panel is off, you can now loosen the clamps securing the tub-to-pump hose to the bottom of the tub and the pump's inlet then take the hose out and clean the filter/trap.

You should find foreign objects such as coins, toothpicks, hairpins and the likes blocking the filter. Clear the filter from the foreign objects and inspect the pump impeller by turning it with your finger. The impeller may be restricted or damaged resulting in the water not being pumped out properly or none at all. Replace the pump if the impeller is broken or restricted and doesn't turn freely or if the pump is no longer operational. You can tell the pump is no longer operational if all are clean and the impeller is in good shape and turning freely. Reassemble the machine by following the steps above in reverse order.

When installing the filter in the coin trap, the top ring of the filter MUST be seated in the 3rd convolution from the bottom.

Dishwasher won't go to next cycle kinda hums.


If you never hear it washing, then it sounds like the motor is not turning. There may be something that has gotten down inside the pump impeller at the bottom of the unit.

You will need to remove the baskets, remove the lower spray bar, then remove the lower plastic shield that covers the impeller. At some point you should be able to rotate the motor by turning the impeller.

I have a LG diawsher, model # LDS5811ST that is


Display Condition LE = Motor Error

Possible Cause For Error Occurrence:

Wiring connection is OK?
The Impeller of Washing Pump is
locked.
The rotor of Washing Motor is
locked.
The Blade is locked.


Remedy:

Check the wiring connection.
Replace the cause of restriction.
Replace the Washing Motor.
Replace the PCB.

LE means locked motor disassemble the filter and work your way down to the macerator(steel chopper blade) remove it and see if the side labeled "this side up" is really up, its in english... dont think the chinese labourers paid attention to the warning cause i have seen alot that were wrong way
You also should remove the door panel and check for a broken wire (usually the blue one)

If all the wiring checks out - it is most likely a broken or locked up impeller.

Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question.

The impeller does not rotate.


Sounds like you probably have a large piece jamming the impeller. Look for an inspection cover somewhere on the outside of it. remove the cover and try to turn the impeller backward with a pry bar of some sort to free it up. DISCONNECT THE SPARK PLUG BEFORE BEGINNING!!

Bosch dishwasher wont drain. At end of cycle is full of cloudy water.


It is possible if you have broken a glass recently that the piece of glass has made its way to the drain pump impeller. You need to remove bottom basket. Remove the filter strainer clamp by rotating CCW. There may be another round filter under the strainer (depending on model). Then with a torque screwdriver remove one screw which holds the plastic pump cover on. Remove the pump cover and pay close attention to the pump impeller. Does it rotate by finger movement? If not it could be jamed with a piece of broken glass. You must remove any obstruction to allow the impeller to turn. I usually force a paper towel piece (half piece while rotating the impeller by finger to allow the paper towel to bring up any obstruction below the impeller) Reassemble the cover and filters carefully and make sure the final strainer clamp aligns correctly with its marks. This insures nothing will make its way to the impeller in future.
