SOURCE: Kitchenaid Dishwasher has starting making a real loud noise

Hi Andy and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. That loud noise your hearing is the motor bearings. If you were to remove the lower kick panel you will prbably find signs of a slow leak of water has been trickling through the motor and you will see a water spot under the motor pump assembly.
You were correct in your assumption that it was bearings. What happens is the motor shaft ceramic seal starts leaking long before the home owner even notices it. Then the water gets into the motor and corrosion starts to build up. As the motor turns the bearing starts to spal as a result of the corrosion and you hear the loud noises.
The only fix for this sadly to say is a complete motor impeller assembly replacement. If your model number is the one associated with this post / question: KUDI01FLSS then there is one more digit after the last "S" that being one of the following numbers 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6.

The motor and impeller for your dishwasher Item 10 or 18 can be found here and is listed at $138.44:

The seal that has failed is item 23 of the same link. Changing the seal at this point will not stop the noise.

Thanks for using FixYa.

SOURCE: I was driving my 50CC scooter down the road today

Your drive belt snapped. If it is a 50cc, 4 stroke engine, chinese scooter, with a 10 inch rear wheel, then you most likely need a 669-18-30 belt. That is the most popular scooter belt on the planet and is available for about $10-$35, depending on the quality you want. Any scooter shop can change it for you. It only takes about 15 minutes, but expect to pay a chargeable labor rate of .5-1hr since there are unexpected problems occasionally, and there is cleanup time, paperwork time, etc. It should cost about $30-$75 in labor plus parts. Any more than that and you are getting ripped off. You may have other worn parts in your transmission such as roller weights and variator guides. These tend to wear out on chinese bikes around 3000km+. If they are worn, change them while the technician is working on it. It shouldn't cost you any more labor, just the parts, about $12-$20 for the rollers, and $8-$12 for the guides. Cheap belts last about 2000-3000km, good belts last 5000-9000km. Pay the extra few dollars for the better belt, you won't regret it. If your belt broke prior to 2000km, then you may have a defective part in your transmission, such as the rear pulley. That usually comes as a "clutch pack" and generally sells for $40-$90. If you have more than 2000km, it probably snapped just from normal wear and tear. If you can't find a local scooter shop, you can reach us at We can ship you any parts you need. This repair is not recommended for novices. Although it is easy for those who know how to do it, you can damage your crankshaft and ruin your motor if you do it wrong. Hope this helps.

It sounds like computer has put you bike into limp home mode or safety mode to protect the engine. What warning lights do you have if any come on? it sounds like a sensor has either malfunctioned or has done its job properly and picked up something wrong like, temp sensor, oxygen, oil pressure, mass air flow sensor etc. Either way when something is out of the norm form the sensor inputs to the bikes computer it will often limit the revs on the bike putting it into limp home mode to protect the engine.

I personally would be getting a mechanic to put it on a diagnostic machine. If the computer has caused the bike to go into limp mode, your mechanic will more than likely be able read a fault code from your computer to point you in the right direction as to the root cause of this fault.

A common loss of power problem with B&S V twins is a set of crumpled valve push rods. Means you are running on one cylinder which is generally OK unless you also want to mow. Easy to check, pull one plug wire at a time off. If it continues to run on one cylinder but not the other, that is your dead cylinder. As the intake is not opening, there will not be a wet plug. Costs nothing to check and could be your problem.

Loud & smoky smell

could be open at the top of the muffler .......or may be a flange connection between the headers and the intermediate pipe or the connection along the seam or to the muffler

you will need a light and with the vehicle running {{Visually Inspect}} for smoke or louder noise to seclude the area /s of this issue .

Lawnmower had loss of power after running into shed door...

two things come to mind here,
1. did the door hit the muffler or carb, if the muffler port is blocked you will loose power.
2 you said the door ht the cover, if it pushed the cover in on the flywheel it may have partially sheared the key. this would cause the timing to not be correct. if it had completley sheared it would not start but if partially then it probally would biut timing would not be right.

No it has not been overheating or losing coolant at all it just has been running rough and poorly (loud) it was not smoking till he took out the old spark plug and put in the new one he said it was smoking out all that had been backed up into the cylinder due to non working spark plugs (there was oil on the spark plug)

1990 gmc k2500 new 5.7engine & turbo 400 ,power lose & noise.

sounds as if you may be looking in the wrong spot. If different gearing is drastically changing the symptoms you may want to check the trans. or torque converter. sudden pop with engine rpm increase and lack of power sounds like possible band breakage in transmission or impellor breakage in torque converter.
