Miele 870 dishwasher..timer works but doesn't wash goes thru cycle but no evidence washing or water swishing around.

I had this happen when my "water pump" went out on my dishwasher. It wasn't pumping the water up and into the machine or pumping it out.

Fridgeair dishwasher not working making loud sound. water comes in and I can make it drain out but washer does not start


bearings in the heater fan may get worn out or rust. If this happens, it may become very noisy, either grinding on the bearings, or scraping against the rust. If this happens you need to replace the fan motor. Sometimes, a fan blade may come loose, and you need to replace it.
Sometimes it's the motor that makes the noise you hear. The motor has bearings in it which may become worn or get rusty. When the bearings get worn, they allow the shaft to wobble which can get quite loud. If there is a spin seal leak, water may get inside the motor, washing the bearing grease away. If the spin seal is leaking, you'll notice water leaking from under the dishwasher. There is also a disc attached to the top of the motor called a slinger. It sometimes breaks off and spins around the motor's shaft while it turns, causing some noises. You will need to replace the motor if the bearings are bad. You also need to replace the motor if the slinger is broken as well.

Newer dishwashers may make a squealing or rattling noise on the first run. This is because it has not had any water in it yet, and the motor seals are dry. You may hear this in a unit that hasn't been run in a week or more as well. You should operate the dishwasher regularly to keep the sump water from getting smelly, and to keep the seals lubricated. You can add a quart of water to the sump before running it.

Rattling noises may be produced by dishes rattling inside the dishwasher due to the water pressure from the sprayer arms on the dishes. To determine if the rattling is a loading issue, run the unit empty. If the sound is persistent, it may be that there is debris in the pump.

dishwasher water-inlet valves are noted to make a hum that lasts about 60-90 seconds several times during a washing cycle. This hum is a different hum than the sound of the motor running.

A rhythmic knocking or thumping sound may be caused the sprayer arms hitting something as they go around and around. Rearrange the dishes and resume the wash.

A clunking or clanking may be heard when the detergent cup opens; while a clicking sound may be produced by the timer or electronic control panel.

A solenoid makes a snap sound when it opens. This happens about six times during each load.

Pipes rattling or banging may be caused by a water hammer effect. Water hammer sounds are caused by a valve closing in the system, and yet the water in the pipe is still flowing because of its kinetic energy. The sound is caused by the water slamming into the closed section of pipe. A plumber can install an anti-hammer device.

Small objects can sometimes get stuck in the pump. When this occurs, you'll need to open the pump and then remove the item that is making the noise or replace the pump. The dishwasher pump is usually mounted directly to the motor and runs off the motor as well. The pump is also attached to the bottom of your dishwasher.

My miele is saying check drain - what should I do?

You probably have foreign objects in the drain pump. To access the drain pump, open the cover on the lower left hand side of the unit. Once thats open you will see the drain pump. Turn the knob to open drain pump. There will probably be water still in the pump so you may want to have a small container and some towels handy. Reach inside the pump and clean out any foreign object. The rotor is located in the back of the pump, stick your fingers inside and make sure it spins freely. That should take care of your problem.

The water wont drain and the is a clicking noise coming out of the water pump motor

Something may be stuck in the pump impeller causing it to make a clicking or rattling noise. Disconnect power then remove the lower front access panel to access the pump filter and the pump impeller.

Remove the three screws attaching the lower front access panel to the cabinet then pull the panel down and off the cabinet. You can prop up the bottom front edge of the washer or cushion and lean it against the wall to access and remove the screws more easily.

Drain the water into a bucket or shallow pan and lay a piece of towel under the pump filter prior to the removal of the filter. Turn the filter knob counterclockwise to remove and clean it. Reach in the pump to check if it is restricted or detached from the pump motor spline. Replace the pump assembly if the impeller is broken or detached.

Dishwasher makes a lot of mechanical noise when running

If your dishwasher seems noisy, check these:
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.
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.
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.

1 Look at the heater fan to check for rusty or squeaky parts. If defective parts are found, replace the fan. If not, go on to the next step.
2 Replace the water inlet valve, which is located at the bottom of one of the sides of the dishwasher, beneath the lower access panel. As a water inlet valve ages, it can sometimes slowly stop working correctly, switching between "on" and "off" every few seconds. This can cause a shaking and rattling noise. If this does not fix the noise, go on to the next step.
3 Remove the lower rack and the lower spray arm from the dishwasher, removing any screws as needed to do so.
4 Beneath the lower spray arm is a pump that contains a propeller. Check the pump for debris (like small bones, seeds, or fragments of glass) that might be causing the noise. If this does not fix the noise, go on to the next step.
5 Beneath the pump is the dishwasher's motor. Check to see if the plastic dish at the top of the motor has broken off. If it has, it may be rattling when the motor is on and causing the noise. In this case, replace the entire motor.
6 Check the bearings on the motor. If they are worn out, replace them.
7 If you cannot trace the noise to its source, try replacing the motor.

Miele 2470 does not rinse properly. The motor seems to be stuck because it makes a buzzing noise

Hi dear.According to what you're saying,there is a problem with wash pump.Please do this before take any action, remove the filter & check for any obstacles.if there is any clean it & run the machine for test.If this did not work then there is a little capacitor on the main wash pump.That's causing the problem & needs to be chage.If you can do it,try to replace the capacitor "?uF"same as the original type.It should work perfectly.I hope that helps.Thanks.

Rattle noise when I let go of the accelerator. The faster I go and then slow down, the louder the rattle noise

Have a look at the shrouds around your exhaust system, they are prone to shaking loose and rattle on over run.
Try giving your exhaust a bang ( with your hand when it is cold) and see if it causes the noise . Follow the noise.
Sometimes the baffles fall off inside the muffler and rattle around inside too.
Happy hunting!!

When water is pumping out it makes a horrible rattleing noise.

Hi, the problem here is you have a piece of glass or something similar caught in the chopper blade. Pull the lower spray arm out and then remove the screws and the filter and the rest of the assembly inside the dishwasher until you get to the chopper blade. Then remove the debris. Put the dishwasher back together and you should be all set. If you have any other questions please feel free to comment. Mike

Loud rattling noise and burning rubber smell

I'll bet the machine uses a belt drive, and the belt is probably worn, slipping, and chipped. The slipping makes it hot which makes the burning smell, and the rattling is the spring-loaded tensioner pulley banging against its limit because it hits the damaged part of the belt every time it comes around. Before you look anywhere for a new belt, take my advice and look in an autoparts store first. We went everywhere to find a belt for my friend's machine, which was expensive and would have to be ordered, then we got one at autozone for $5. You can probably just take off the front of the machine to open it but you might have to move or disconnect the motor from the machine to get the belt free.
