The noise you are hearing is called water hammer. The inlet valve on your dishwasher shuts very quickly, and the speeding water in the pipe must stop instantly, causing the pipe to move violently. Get a plumber to install an air cushion chamber in your hot water line very close to the dishwasher.

Bulging pipes


It is very unlikely the inlet water hose is blocked. Most likely it has thinned out and needs replacement. You will have to take the bottom drawer out to get to it. Make sure the diswasher is disconnected from mains power and the water inlet under kitchen sink is shut. The plastic plugs on each side needs to be pulled out to get the front cover out and access the slide rails on which the drawer slides. Make sure the front cover does not fall as the controller and panel are held in it. Take the tub out and leave on floor. The water inlet valve and inlet hose are mouned at the back wall of housing.

Noisy water pipes when neighbours use water


Install air chamber to cushion sudden-stop of flowing water.
Water flow coming to sudden stop is called water hammer, and will bang pipes, but also loosen plumbing joints, causing leaks.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-electric-problems-with-water-heater.html#bang
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Flow-rates-water-hammer-600.jpg

Air chamber has to be vertical, and about 18" long, with cap on top.
By code each Hot and Cold line at each tap will have air chamber located behind the wall. So there are two air chambers at each tap.

In your case, you can probably add air chamber to your Hot and Cold lines and solve problem for both dwellings.

Water hammer is caused because water does not compress like air.
So when long column of water suddenly stops... the whole pipe-full of water comes to sudden halt... and that water could weigh 1-1/2 pounds ... and just like a hammer head moving, the weight of water bangs the pipes to dissipate energy, causing noise.

There is a knocking sound from inside the faucet and it is leaking under it


when plumbing knocks and shakes the fittings I never seen it being the fauect causeing it. What it sounds more like that you have a loose pipe in the wall. That will bang every time the water goes on and off.

All single handle faucets are quick shut off which does not help to stop the bang. It makes it worst.

Try at first to turn off the water to the house, then open every fauect in the house and on the out side. I know it sound nuts, but this is what you are doing. when a house is bulit they install an AIR CHAMBER this is no more than a section of pipe 12 to 24 inch long with a cap on the end.

This traps air inside, you can compress air but not water so this acts like a shock absorboer that stops water hammer.

Now turn the water back on and then tirn off all the open fauects. If it stil does it you might have to open a wall and strap down the pipe work. also get some flex water supply lines for the lav faucet this will let the pipe move without making any bang soounds

I have two problems with my GUI1500 dishwasher. The 1st is that when water starts entering the dishwasher I hear a loud hammering/vibrating sound. It's strange, but the sound will stop if I turn on a...


Hi - welcome to FixYa,

The first problem isn't a fault with the washer, it's a plumbing problem called "water hammer", which is a resonating vibration through your pipes. It's usually caused by a toilet flush valve, but can be triggered by any sudden opening of a valve. In your case it's the water inlet valve (solenoid) on your dishwasher which is triggering it. Opening a faucet stops the problem as opening another valve changes the frequency of the vibration and stops the resonance. The reason it resonates and you get that hammering noise is because your pipes aren't clipped/secured properly.

It's fairly simple to stop this on a flush as a damper can be fitted. However, it's quite unusual for this to be caused by a dishwasher. You may be able to solve the problem by altering the path of the water inlet hose to the washer and making sure it isn't taught. Also make sure the section of pipework immediately before the water inlet hose is properly clipped to any wall or nearby structure. If your pipework is exposed, add some clips in any locations where there are long runs of pipe with no clips or fixings. If the pipes are enclosed in wall or floor spaces, then it's going to be significantly more difficult!

The soap-dispenser can be replaced, but you have to remove the front panel of the door to get access to the fixings. This can be done by removing the screws around the edges of the inner door - I think they are just philips/crosshead screws on your washer, but you may need a Torx screwdriver bit to undo them. You don't need to remove the screws along the top edge of the inner door as they are only holding the control panel in place. Once these screws are removed you should be able to pull the front panel away from the door revealing the fixings for the soap dispenser.

Hope this helps.

Water inlet is just a trickle and have made sure that there is no kink in the line or any leaks. I suspect that what I believe to be an impeller or pump is bad?


I would turn the water off to the house, unhook the inlet hose from the shut off valve under the sink, and open the inlet valve and try cleaning it out with a pipe cleaner or remove the valve completely and soak it in CLR. If this doesnt correct the problem then you may need to replace the inlet valve on the dishwasher but its almost always a gunked up shut off valve.
Let me know if this helps _MJ_

Washer wont fill enough water


Washers have a (vacum pipe) that feeds a micro switch. The air pressure in the vacume pipe caused by the water filling the washer activates a vacum switch when the correct amount of water has entered the machiene. This vacum pipe could be partly blocked or the vacume pressure switch contacts burnt of faulty. This can be tested by physicaly blowing air by mouth into the pipe and you should hear the switch click.

Dishwasher leaks at start


Is the washer not "over filling" due to the water fill vacume pipe and micro switch that shuts off the water once the correct level blocked or restricted due to fatty residue? This could also be one of the washer pipes clogged up and increasing the pressure in the fill tank.

Dishwasher worked fine last night, this morning it is not working


In some supply systems, there is a safety valve ( commonly referred to as a shuttle valve) that has a small ball bearing that blocks the water from flowing if a water line bursts.. This is supposed to be a safety feature to prevent flooding but can be an annoyance if that ball moves and blocks water flow from coming in.
That, or your water inlet valve may be the prime suspects for this problem..
Hope this helps,
Regards,
Rick

That knocking noise is probably coming from your water line, and that happens when there is some kind of a ripple/wave effect when the water goes into your dishwasher (DW) thru the inlet/fill water valve. First turn your hot water valve off, underneath the sink coming from the wall and it usually is also going to your kitchen faucet. Then turn the electricity off by locating the breaker to the DW line and turning it off, or if it is plugged in an outlet under your sink, just unplug it. Then take the kick toe panel (panel with 2 or 4, 1/4" or philips screws) from the bottom of the dishwasher. You will then see the water hose, or could be a copper pipe, going into the valve (will have a selenoide, cylinder shape on top and have 2 wires plugged in to it). Unscrew the hose/pipe from the water valve and get a small wide bucket or pot and aim the hose/pipe to it. Slowly have someone open the water valve from under the sink while you hold it in the bucket/pot. If you hear the knocking again, you will need a plumber to check the pipes, hoses and water valve at your wall. If you don't here the knocking noise, just replace the dishwasher inlet/fill water valve part # 785330. http://www.repairclinic.com/0080.asp. Please post back.
