Question about Amana 24 in. DWA22A Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

On certain cycles, the motor makes a very loud humming noise.

No problems up to now. This noise seems to be when the water is coming into the dishwasher. It almost sounds like the motor is stuck. The dishes are being cleaned but we're afraid we may be damaging something further.

    That sounds about right. We just had a party and I don't think the plates were cleared very well. We'll take your advice and see what happens.

Quite possible that noise is from foriegn debris( ie.chicken bone of pistachio shell, toothpicks) getting into macerator/chopper assy, wouldnt panic just yet, give it a fewloads to try to clear itself, a few screws leading down through the top of motor assy (under lower spray arm should give you access to assy if needed

Frigidaire washer makes a very loud humming noise on spin cycle.


Good Morning Larry Looney, thank you for your post!

I understand that your Frigidaire frontload washer is making a humming noise while in spin cycle. This could be a potential problem with your motor or drum bearing. In order to find the proper cause of the humming noise I would highly recommend having a professional technician come out to your home for diagnosis and repair. This will help to avoid any unnecessary part purchases as well as any future issues. -Matt

Kenmore 600 series washer stoped in the fast spin cycle all it will do now is make a stuck humming noise


The humming can be the pump motor, running for a certain time, to make sure all water is out. It should stop in a few minutes. If not, it could be a glitch. If the error keeps coming back, please contact a repair engineer.

GE DPXH46GA6CC gas dryer makes large humming noise in heat cycles and burning smell


Two things are likely going on here,1- something is dragging down your motor check for a twist in the belt, idler pulley bad, belt installed wrong or wrong belt. Also check your front drum felt and glides if the felt is bunched up that will drag down the motor. Now the smell you probably have some felt or lint in the burner clean it carefully you do not want to damage your igniter.

Loud humming noise when dishwasher is filling up with water


your model is pretty new. just so you know your warrenty is 1 year parts and labor. 2 years on parts. it should not cost that much money.

there are two components that start before the circulation pump.(wash noise you hear)

first sounds you hear will be the drain pump. usually rattling noises if something is in it but it can make a hum noise if something is jamming the drain propeller up. which is accessible with a T20 torx driver. take the filters out and the mesh filter. and unscrew the screw in the base towards the left. pull out whatever is lodged.

the other humming sound can come from the next component that activates is the watervalve. make sure you dont have a kinked water intake line. otherwise its a bad valve. i have had to change a few of those water valves out already but not for a hum noise on your model. you have a new style water valve. when brands make new parts we get problems fast sometimes..

Maytag dishwasher mdb56000aww


It seems that your motor on the dishwasher is going out, like mine has just done. My explanation is that it sounds like something is grinding on glass or as if a bunch of mice are making noise. Eventually, the motor will not run any more. What will happen is that the dishwasher will fill up, then make a loud humming noise, while the heating element is making the water near the heating element sizzle. Now what you have is a possible fire hazard which compounds the problem with the dishwasher. Get rid of it, take the loss and live like my grandmother used to, without having a dishwasher. That is the best advice I can give you.
