Grinding noise when washing

Hi, my dishwasher had a grinding noise before and when I had someone come out to look at it there was a bunch of popsicle sticks in the pump. So now the grinding has come back and I suspect there is something in the pump. I have dismantled the filter module down just past the seal. I can't get the black thingy off to get down into the pump. How can I do that?

Maytag dishwasher has a grinding sound during the


Hi

Many times a complaint of noises ( grinding or scraping ) can be traced to a cracked impeller in many of the common motor and pump assemblies used today. Sometimes a poor washing complaint is common after this wash impeller has cracked. Remove power first before investigating.

The motor shaft has started to rust and swells out and this swelling cracks the upper impeller. Most times a new seal and impeller kit can cure this complaint but sanding and cleaning of motor shaft is required before replacing the new seals and impellers.

Please do rate the solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Well a grinding noise could come from any moving part. It could be the wash arm, motor, or pump. Remove the wash arm and clean all that you can reach with a nylon brush. If that doesn't do it, call the repairman.

LG Dishwasher making grinding noise then blinking E1 code 10 minutes later


Well done by resolving this problem. The other way to avoid the siphoning problem through the drain hose is adding an air gap valve/connector (available at any hardware store). You can use it even if you don't have a garbage disposal in your kitchen sink. That will assure that you have the proper height of the drain hose.
Hope this helps!

Maytag dishwasher mdb56000aww


It seems that your motor on the dishwasher is going out, like mine has just done. My explanation is that it sounds like something is grinding on glass or as if a bunch of mice are making noise. Eventually, the motor will not run any more. What will happen is that the dishwasher will fill up, then make a loud humming noise, while the heating element is making the water near the heating element sizzle. Now what you have is a possible fire hazard which compounds the problem with the dishwasher. Get rid of it, take the loss and live like my grandmother used to, without having a dishwasher. That is the best advice I can give you.
