If the buzz stops when you open the door it could be the water solenoid valve which if it is not filling with water there is a 90% chance it is the valve. Turn off the water supply going the dishwasher under the sink or by the pipe. Pull the dishwasher out and unplug it if the hose length allows it to pull out. Put a towel or pan under the dishwasher hose connection disconnecting the hose on the dishwasher valve. Remove the racks and tip the unit forward with the unit unplugged and unbolt the valve where the water inlet is connected. Undo the hose clamp and wire connector. Check the valve or order a replacement and reinstall clamps and connectors. Be very careful when using the unit the first few times that no water leaks from hose connections by using a tissue touching the connections to see if water is present. Mold sucks so use a flash light looking in the front panel and tissue even after replacing the unit back in its final place.

I noticed just as going to bed last night that our dishwasher appeared to be making a strange noise (dull buzzing sound), opened door to check and the display has the number 3 flashing, several fault codes...


check the very bottom of washer; look for something jamming the garbage cutting blades. it can be something very small stock half way in the drain causing the blades to stop turning and therefore keeps it from draining water. just an idea

The problem was the buzzing noise when I turned the switch on. A repairman said to try holding the door switch down and then turn the
switch on and turn the inside with my hand and it happened to start turning again. He gave me that information over the phone. I thank the Lord for his information.

if you cant hear the motor/compressor running when energised then its likely to be a thermostat fault... but on energising the system if you hear a buzz then a click then its more seriously the main motor... turn off at mains for 5 mins then turn on... this should tell you either way

Made buzzing nosie then stoped


Hello, The problem here is something most likely a piece of glass stuck in the pump which is seizing up the motor. You should pull i out from under the counter and take the pump apart to clear the blockage. If you have any other questions please feel free to comment again. Mike

Hotpoint dc26 problem


Sounds like a solenoid is stuck, but you have to use a voltmeter to troubleshoot the problem. You can find the schematic inside the door panel; the schematic will show you the drain solenoid.

Hotpoint Superplus 7822 dishwasher


At the beginning of the cycle the dishwasher is attempting to pump out any residue water in the waste pipe and sump. It could be that the motor is sticking but you would probably also suffer from it not draining properly.
It may just be noisy pump. I have a similar model and it is also quite noisy but nothing extraordinary.
When the dishwasher is pumping out at the end of the washing cycle it may be quieter when there is water in the pump/pipes but then gets noisy as it 'pumps air'.
