Question about Maytag 24 in. MDB8600AW Jetclean II Built-in Dishwasher
The diswasher motor started making louder noise than usual. the dishwasher completes its cycle however the dishes are not being cleaned.
the noise seems to be louder during the wash cycle. During thr drain down or pumpout cycle the dishwasher sound s fine.
It could be the impeller on the motor. The impeller fits over the shaft of the motor and might have split/broken up. That funny noise is probably the shaft spinning inside the damage impeller. Fortunately the impeler is fairly inexpensive and easy to replace. I believe there are one or two parts/covers to remove that are held in by a roughly half dozen torx screws.

I just had a very simialar problem with a noisy wash cycle. Fearing something had broken I had removed pieces to access the impeller to find everything was in one piece?! I kept looking inside until I found a small rusting pin (from some cheap utensil probably) near the drain hole. After the pin was removed and everything was put back together - everything worked fine. My guess is that the metal pin was being forced toward the food prop - couldn't pass through so the prop was being jammed instead. I ran several rinse cycles before reloading just in case.

Maytag dishwasher Model MDBH955AWW. Makes loud noise only during wash cycles. When I open door and tap on washer blade assembly under top rack the noise sometimes stops and dishwasher goes back to 'normal quite self'. May be just a coincidence, but this started right after maytag repairman replaced the heating element that was part of a 'recall'.

Maytag dishwasher model MDB7100AWQ
Starts, cleans dishes, however, with 40 minutes left of the 90 minute cycle it makes a loud type of grinding noise and starts to shut down. All moving parts have been taken apart, cleaned, inspected and seem fine. Motor turns by hand freely and without any binding or noise. Dishwasher was bought new in January 2002. Whats my problem.
