Replacing a motor is reasonably easy. One has to know basics of electrical safety though.
The motor can be bought on ebay.
Make sure it is a motor, not other things, fuses, control parts etc.
Disconnect the dishwasher before any electrical works.
I would open the dishwasher, take out protective plastic covers at the botom (they are typically removed with a flat screw driver), unscrew the motor, find out which Cat. number it is, order one on ebay,
put it back, you are done. The worst thing is that it all takes crawling on the knees for a while.

If you can not do electrical works, post an ad on craigslist.org, help wanted with location and price of the work.

My whirlpool dishwasher clean light blinks on and off,and I can no longer run dishwasher.Unit is only 3 to 4 years old


Hi- One of two things- fault in touchpad/control, or bad motor. If you pull bottom kick panel, with a bright light look underneath for water deposits on botom of aluminum motor case. Any motor seal leak will show up here. If you see any crud on bottom, motor must be replaced. Not uncommon to fail 3-4 yrs.Anyway- motor is about 100$ - control 150-175$ Labor varies.- Hope this helps- ED

My dishwasher is making a lot of noise...sounds like its coming from the motor, It is 5 years old, does the motor go bad on these? If so, are they cheaper to buy a new motor


Depends on the motor's priceHowever I would suggest that you replace the entire unit due to cost of repairman and motor itself. Good Luck hope this helped

3 year old GE dishwasher dead!


Buy a different brand of washing machine. I suggest a front loading one because they use so little water and they are cost effective and actually pay for themselves.

I have a not quite 2 year old Kenmore dishwasher model #665.1322.(I believe built by Whirlpool) The motor has burnt out. That seems ridiculous to me when there is just my husband & I using it and...


I have recently had the same problem with the same model. Do you think there's a connection? I'm going to report this to Consumer Reports.

Kenmore elite dishwasher making loud buzzing sound when washing


I had the same problem with by Kemore Ultrawash after two years. The motor bearing went bad because the seal went out and dish water got to the bearing. If you are handy, this motor comes out after taking the dishwasher out. I was surprised how easily the motor came apart from the dishwasher, a good design. The motor has three screws that holds it together, I took them out and took the motor apart.
I took the old beaing off the shaft with a grinder, careful not to groove the motor shaft. I did, but just put some high temp silicone caulk in the groove before I put the new bearing on the shaft. I bought a new bearing on the internet, it is a 22mm x 8mm x 7mm. I bought one that went in a small engine, a quality one. I placed it on the shaft, put the motor back together and put the dishwasher back together. It has run quiet and great for many weeks now. I expect the dishwasher may last many years now, because the bearing I took out was a cheap aftermarket one, and the new one is vastly superior in quality.

Good luck and fire away with any questions. I love this dishwasher and am glad I could fix it for 19$ and some of my time.

What dishwasher to buy


My GE brand has been running strong for over 7 years. I run it about every 2 to 3 days. So that adds up to almost 700 loads. It looks as good as new inside and out. I am real impressed with GE's quality.

Quiet Series 100


It sound like a pump issue. The dishwasher has a motor that attached to a pump which forces the water up into the sprayer arms and during the drain cycle, it pushes the water out of the dishwasher. The motor (and pump) located beneath the dishwasher. Check if pump spins when it should force the water up into the sprayer arms. In case it doesn't spin you should replace the pump. Good luck !
