Either a piece of tableware has penetrated the intake screen at the bottom under the lower spray arm, and the pump impeller is damaged, or the pump motor underneath the deck has a bad bearing and must be replaced. Remove all components including the lower spray arm down to the bottom deck. Note the position and orientation of each piece as it is removed. When you get to the bottom, there should be a pump impeller that is connected to the motor underneath the deck. Turn the impeller by hand and see if it is noisy, or moves side to side indicating a bad motor bearing.

I have a 2012 cbr 250 and when starting it makes a loud sound like meatal on metal. It also makes that sound when idle but when I rev the engine it doesnt make that noise. What could be wrong


It may be piston slap if your idle speed is particularly low, but that's a bit strange for a new-ish bike. Hard to diagnose online - why not drop in to your dealer for a quick appraisal by one of the mechanics?

Whirlpool duet is about one and half years old and starts making a loud metal to metal noise while trying to start after the water had run in. Clank, Clank, Clank Loyd


Hi Loyd.

If the metal noise is like rattling, as first thing check the object trap located behind the trim at the base of the washer. Check also through the basket holes and inside the tub if there is any foreign object stuck that may be causing the noise.

From the description the noise looks more like that of a broken spin basket support, which is a common fault on Duet. This fault will result on a rithmical loud clank that occurrs more or less when the basket is passing through the same position.The basket supports are located at the back side of the basket.To reach the part an almost complete disassembly of the appliance is required. The spin basket and its support is covered by long term warranty (ten years or lifetime).

Call Whirpool at the number listed on the manual, tell them the symptoms and eventually mention that a technician suggested the problem being the basket support, and check conditions for repair. The repair will be probably covered by manufacturer.

Regards.

Ginko.

Loud clanking noise in gear if the clutch is not engaged


Almost sounds like a throwout bearing problem. Either way, bring the car back and make them fix it. It will be covered under the warranty so dont let them try to convince you otherwise.

Loud Humming noise every time we run the dishwasher


Hi, I had this exact same problem. In my situation it turned out to be the pump that pumps out all of the used water. It was rubbing up against the floor so that every time it turned on it made a loud vibrating sound. I just reached under the washer and put a piece of rubber between it and the floor and it solved the problem.

good luck!

I saw this post because I am considering buying the same model you have. Other than the noise problem you have, what do you think of it?

Check your battery status in the morning. Sounds like you have a drain, or a weak battery which will cause the problem.

Loud clanking noise in dishwasher


Most likely the motor as food caught in the sump would not make a noise you described.
