Still making a sound after a cycle


That whining sound is most likely the small fan Toto has to "cool" the electronics. Very similar to a laptop PC fan. The fan will eventually go off, ~ 20 minutes. If you would like it to go off immediately, simply push the power button on the seat - off, and then again for on. Do this action while you are not sitting on the seat, otherwise the cycle will start again. :)

Dishwasher hums intermitantly and after the wash cycle is completed


Sounds like you have a bearing going out. It could be in the system pump or the rotating washing arms. I would suggest getting ahold of Kitchenaid's customer support and relay when during which cycle the noise occurs and they should be able to identify whats going wrong.

Dishwasher makes a whinning noise during the washing cycle. I have opened to check inside, and the dishwasher is ok for a few minutes, then it starts whinning again. The dishwasher is just over a year old,...


If wash quality is OK leave it. Pump will make whining noise due to its' ball/bush bearing problem.

Some times if the water inlet flow is not free in flow also results in noise.
Clean the inlet water filter and check the flow before re- connecting to the machine.

Bosch dishwasher whining


if you listen to the appliance and the noise is louder on the rhs and low down this is probably the main wash motor they sometimes do whine if you can live with the noise leave it alone if not you basically have to take the whole applianmce apart for access to the motor costly repair would take a trained pro about 90 mins to replace the motor
if the noise is coming from the front of the appliance more to the lhs and is intermittant ie when it first starts up and then about half way through its likely to be the drain pump relitively easy to replace and you dont have to take the appliance to bits just go at from the front
good luck
