Kitchenaid Whisper Quiet + dishwasher making loud humming noise

I have a Kitchenaid Whisper Quiet Plus dishwasher that is about three years old. About a month ago it has started making a loud humming noise like a bearing or pump is going bad or is restricted. Does anyone know what would cause this? I took the base plate off and the noise seems to be coming from the motor/pump that is centered on the bottom of the dishwasher.

Very likely pump motor shaft seal leaks water into bearing casing buildup of rust and consequently noise. I just replaced $112 worth of pump assy and it's back to normal. I would also buy repair manual for $10 on-line to be sure how to disassemble the sump to get to the pump.

It is likely the thermal fuse is cut off and will need to be reset or replaced depending on the model number of your dishwasher. Please provide actual model number in the comments.

When washer is started make loud grinding noise


Very likely the bearings in the motor have begun to fail. You can replace the motor, but for a 15 year old DW, sometimes it makes better sense to just buy a new one. Depends on the features the old DW has, vs new, vs motor replacement cost.

Loud humming noise when dishwasher is filling up with water


your model is pretty new. just so you know your warrenty is 1 year parts and labor. 2 years on parts. it should not cost that much money.

there are two components that start before the circulation pump.(wash noise you hear)

first sounds you hear will be the drain pump. usually rattling noises if something is in it but it can make a hum noise if something is jamming the drain propeller up. which is accessible with a T20 torx driver. take the filters out and the mesh filter. and unscrew the screw in the base towards the left. pull out whatever is lodged.

the other humming sound can come from the next component that activates is the watervalve. make sure you dont have a kinked water intake line. otherwise its a bad valve. i have had to change a few of those water valves out already but not for a hum noise on your model. you have a new style water valve. when brands make new parts we get problems fast sometimes..
