I have a bluesky BLV dishwasher which makes a whirring noise when washing but not when pumping out. Is there a separate motor on this machine, please?

SOURCE: Diswasher motor making noise during wash cycle

It could be the impeller on the motor. The impeller fits over the shaft of the motor and might have split/broken up. That funny noise is probably the shaft spinning inside the damage impeller. Fortunately the impeler is fairly inexpensive and easy to replace. I believe there are one or two parts/covers to remove that are held in by a roughly half dozen torx screws.

SOURCE: Loud Whining/Humming noise while washing

It's noisy If your dishwasher seems noisy, check these:

Water-inlet valve
Motor
Heater fan
Pump
Water-inlet valve An aging water-inlet valve can sometimes fail slowly, rather than all at once. It can shudder on and off rapidly, causing the incoming water lines to shake, rumble, and rattle--sometimes violently. If yours is doing this, replace the inlet valve.

Motor If it's the motor that's noisy, either of these may be the "culprit:"

  • As motor bearings wear out, they can become quite loud when the motor runs. They wear out quickly if they frequently get wet, because the water washes away the motor bearing grease. Bearings can get wet if the spin seal is defective. Then there will also be water leaking onto the floor beneath the dishwasher. Replace the seal if it leaks (read about the main tub seal in the "It leaks" section, later).

  • If, from beneath the dishwasher, you can see a round, plastic disc that's mounted to the top of the motor (a "slinger"), it may have broken free of the motor shaft. If so, it could be rattling around the shaft while the motor is running. If that's the problem, you need to replace the motor.

Heater fan If the heater fan bearings are rusted or worn, they may squeal, or scrape loudly during the drying cycle. If this is the problem, replace the fan motor. Alternatively, the fan blade may be loose. If so, you need to replace it.

Pump Small fruit pits, toothpicks, and fragments of glass sometimes get stuck in the pump. When this happens, open the pump and remove the debris. The pump is usually mounted directly to the motor, then attached to the bottom of the dishwasher.

To get to the pump, you usually need to remove the lower rack, the spray arms, and the spray arm support from the inside of your dishwasher. A dishwasher pump isn't obvious. Look for an impeller--a round, plastic fan blade-type device that spins around and pushes the water toward the drain. When you can see the drain impeller, you should be able to see the clogging debris.

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!

SOURCE: LG Dishwasher LDF7811 Making Growling Noise

Recommendations:
-Switch to a brand name detergent powder - like Electrosol or Cascade and do not fill the dispenser cup full. You will notice the difference immediately.
-Remove the filter assembly one more time and inspect underneath with a flashlight. Look closely for debris and also inspect the impeller to look for damage and that it is spinning freely.
Reassemble and listen for the growling sound. It should not happen. If it continues, you may have a a failing wash motor / motor bearing.
Please report back what you find. OK?

Machine stopped and bells rang


It sounds like the water pump has seized judging from the noise that you were hearing.
When the water seals become old and worn, water seeps through and ends up in the pump motor bearings, which corrode and eventually fail.
Open the machine up and check the pump, they are not repairable, will have to be replaced should this be the case.

Dishwasher wont wash! just makes a humming noise


Without knowing the brand and model it makes it a little hard to anser but I can tell you thats the typical sign that there is something wrong with in some machines, the pump/motor assemble, in others the recirulating pump, but a technician should be called.

Shortly after cycle starts, a whirring sound starts, is this a problem with the motor?


with LG dishwashers: after starting, 1st, DW pumps out any remaining water, 2nd, DW fill fresh water, 3rd, main wash motor starts, which is normally a whirring sound. (If you here grinding or rattling, then you have a problem.)

F&P GW712 stopped on rinse cycle and motor made whirring sound. After stopping and starting it water finally out. Sounded sick.


The pumps on F&P washers are known to make whirring, and screeching noises. It could mean that the pump is failing and that it should be changed.
It is not a big job, and takes very little time, as long as the machine has been emptied before the job is started.
Probably best to call a tech, because he/she can check for blockage and also check the pump motor 'resistance', which is reccomended by F&P.
TECH TIP To remove the pump motor, lean the machine back against the wall and study the pump and the 'latch' which secures it. Remove double wires, rotate the pump motor anticlockwise, 'unlatch' and comlete the removal. Disconnect the earth wire.
Replace the pump in reverse order...
Good luck....Nomess

Loud whirring noise going into rinse cycle. Low


Hi tuck just read your posting.Now on the low whirring noise on the start of the rinse cycle ,Is it when the machine is draining the water or filling with water.If the noise happens when the machine is draining then I think either your pump has something slowing it down or it is faulty.Please look underneath the machine to the front right and you should see a red or black fan .If you do then this is your pump.If you don't see a fan you must have the newer style of pump.Please reply with additional information on the questions and I am sure I can help you rectify this problem

Our LG LDF7920st dishwasher (6 months old)makes a whistling noise


Hey, consider the float assembly!

We bought this dishwasher and ran it for the last 1 1/2 months and it made a grinding and whistling sound from day one (it's supposed to be nearly silent in its operation). Turns out the drain pump was cutting in while the machine was still filling, thereby emptying the wash tub of any water. Then, when the cycle proceeded to wash, the dumb thing had no water and made a horrible noise. So I had to pitch in at least 2-3 litres of hot water, and then it worked quietly! Had to do this every time there was new water intake.

After working with the repairmen - four visits later, we isolated the float assembly as the problem and they set about replacing the part. Turns out the two parts were markedly different. LG HAD INSTALLED an older model float assembly at the factory and it was the problem. The replacement part was the correct float assembly and things worked perfectly after that - thank goodness. No more babysitting the dishwasher.

Don't let anyone tell you the motor assembly needs replacement. I have seen that cop-out 'fix' all over the web. But use deductive reasoning to find out where the problem is in the cycle, and explore this option first - it's a quicker and cheaper fix than replacing the whole motor assembly.

'Mr. Float' as he is now called works like this:
-expels any residual water in the tub from the last wash
-intakes water for the wash or rinse
-whirs 2-3 times prepping for the cycle
-begins to wash, quietly
-expels at the end of the wash or rinse.

He used to:
-expel residual water
-intake new water for wash or rinse
---drain pump would cut in WHILE still filling
-machine would whir once, realize it didn't have enough water
-perform a brief top-up intake shot
-begin to wash and whistle and GRIND (this is where I would have to add the water)
-expels water from wash or rinse, and start all over again.

It's a good dishwasher and it will work, but the right model parts have to be in place!

Dishwasher water level low and making strange noise.


Hi, This d/w is designed to run with low water level. The noise you are hearing might be the wash motor. Do you know if this has the single or dual motor setup?
The dual motor style are not the greatest. The wash motor is known to go bad. You can remove the housing below the spray arm and see if anything has lodge in the in impeller. Please let me know if I can assist you further.
