Question about KitchenAid 24 in. KUDS01FLBL Built-in Dishwasher
KitchenAid KUDKO3CTBLO My dishwasher is about 1 1/2 years old. It still washes fine, but the motor/pump makes a terrible sound when it is washing. What could it be? We have checked inside and found nothing wrong. It has become a family joke in our house because I bought this dishwasher because it is so quiet...well, it's definately no longer quiet.
Wowsers! I did the very same thing for the very same reason....Nothing like a Kitchen Aid, best ever...highest reputation...quietest you can get, stainless steel tub....all you'd ever want in a dishwasher...RIGHT?
WELL, mine did the same thing. Started making some noise..just a little at first (but it grew!). Being handy, I took it apart, certain that there was something in there to explain it...put it back together, and convinced myself thet it was a wee bit better sounding (but it grew!). So, being handy, I went on-line and purchased a complete motor/impeller assembly and installed it. It stayed quiet for a while, maybe six months (but it grew!) I even humbled myself to call a technician out (did I mention that I was handy?) and he listened appreciatively and then shrugged his shoulders and said something like "I dunno", but that he could put in a motor/impeller kit in it..... I finally snapped...it was a piece of junk, and I wouldn't have it in my house any longer. Besides, I couldn't keep throwing money at it. Sorry, but thanks for letting me vent. Anyhoo, I bought a Samsung, and I like it OK. Don't get me wrong, after the Kitchen Aid let down, I don't really trust any of 'em. I put the K/A out by the road and that was the end of it, or so I thought...a knock on the door about six weeks later, and the guy says "I picked up this dishwasher over there, and...is it supposed to make that much noise?"
I said all that just to say this...I feel your pain. Maybe your luck will be better than mine was. You can buy a motor/impeller assembly on line for ~$220.00 I think, but I'm not too sure that it's really worth it.
