FFBD2411NS makes loud whining noise after water is pumped out and continues until pump stops.

Thank you for your inquiry, Robert!

From the information you have provided your Frigidaire dishwasher makes a whining noise after the water has been pumped out. This could be a potential issue with your drain pump or motor. To pinpoint the issue you would need to disassemble your dishwasher and test each component and this would best be done with a certified technician. This will help you avoid personal injury or future problems. Best of luck! -Matt

LG LDF6810ST whine noise

-After paying an LG serviceman for a home visit, I told to refer to the manual-and there in small print-USE ONLY POWDER CLEANER. Gel and liquids make too much bubbles(thus air) in the hose producing the noise. It will take several washes-but the noise will go away!

Hi, I am having the exact same problem with my washer and my dishwasher. I have a lot of mineral deposits in the dishwasher, too. I am guessing it is a hard water problem, but am interested to hear whether that is a factor in your problem?

The dishwasher makes quite a loud sound, not grinding but more like a pump impeller whine when the washer is started and during washing.

It could be a motor with bad bearings. But to check you need to remove washer and take outside or in garage. Put machine on it's "back" and take pump apart and look for obstruction. If you are mechanically inclined this is EZ!

Dishwasher Making Loud High Pitched Noise.

A loud high pitch whine while running the dishwasher means that there is something caught in the chopper assembly. To get to the chopper assembly you need to take the racks out and take the pump apart from the inside of the dishwasher. The chopper assembly looks like a metal grate with holes in it. And it might not even be stuck in the grate but somewhere in the pump area due to the water being pumped out, so the best idea is to take the whole thing apart and clean everywhere. However I do not recommend doing this unless you are completely certain you will remember where the screws and gaskets go, otherwise you risk damaging your pump or house from a leak or improper installation. You have been warned.
