Question about Hobart Dishwashers

1 Answer

Why is my Hobart dishwasher making a high pitched squeal?

Turning it off and restarting it after a few minutes. This seems to work for a time. However the squeal returns after a few days of quiet running.

Usually when calls come in with this type of complaint, the technicians always have to pull out the dishwasher from its installation and disassemble the lower spray arm section to check for debris in the pump and motor or the sump depending on which brand and model you have. It usually turns out to be quite a job and routinely brings in a labor cost of at least $125.00. If your going to try and diagnose this your self you will want help. Most manufacturers have a technical assistane line. You should have an 800 number on the model serial tag of your dishwasher that you can call and see it they can get you to that department. You can also try sites like repairclinic.com....Good luck

Squealing noise


A loud high pitch whine while running the dishwasher means that there is something caught in the chopper assembly. To get to the chopper assembly you need to take the racks out and take the pump apart from the inside of the dishwasher. The chopper assembly looks like a metal grate with holes in it. And it might not even be stuck in the grate but somewhere in the pump area due to the water being pumped out, so the best idea is to take the whole thing apart and clean everywhere. However I do not recommend doing this unless you are completely certain you will remember where the screws and gaskets go, otherwise you risk damaging your pump or house from a leak or improper installation. You have been warned.

Our water softener makes a high pitched squealing noise every 10 min. or so, and then quits for several hours only to start again during the night when we're trying to sleep. Our water softener repairman...


A softener will generally make a high pitch squeal when it is backwashing. This is generally the first cycle in most softeners. It may also do this during the final fast rinse cycle. The second brining cycle takes about an hour. That is why you may have a delay in the squeal. Also I have seen at times when a power surge can force the drive motor into a short backwash. Usually just a few minutes. It may help to put a surge surpressor at the water softener plug.

My dryer has a high pitch squeal when starting up. It would go away after a few minutes when it warmed up but now the squeal is getting worse and lasting longer


Kevlar 'slip strip' on which the front of the drum runs may need to be replaced. Try turning drum gently by hand to guage whether or not it is turning freely.

Samsung slimfit television 30"


In this model the horizontal drive coil vibrates and makes a high pitch squeal. Most times it is intermitent. Touching on the coil with something (non electrical, like wood) will make it stop or change it's pitch. The fix my shop uses: It's not to technical, but, we put fingernail polish around the coil. It's a remedy I've used for decades and has always worked. Some shops use a hot glue gun. With the back open you can hear the coil to locate it. When fixing the problem have the set unplugged. When a technician is working on a television while it's plugged in. He uses only one hand and stays away from the high voltage.
