Question about Dishwashers

Need help with dishwasher

When I put my washer on, it sounded so loud, it got my attention. It is usually so quiet I forget it is on. I don't know if you need to know this, but just in case I will tell you a few things. The round light on the top on the left on the integrated panel was on and so was the O light and also No. 4

I did not let it run through all it's cycles, because the loud noise was scaring me. When I did open it up, I moved around different items I thought might be making it sound louder than usual. That did not help at all. So here I am. Anything anyone can do to explain or help with this problem, will be more than appreciated. I I think I have the Incognito G843 SCVi or one that is similar. I bought it about 4 l/'2 years ago. One other thing I want to mention, is when I opened the door it had a pungent odor.

Thank You,
Marcia Kuperstein

Yes you can run a cycle with out any soap or dishes in it. Check the drain at the bottom of the dishwasher. It is usually in the middle or center by the arm that spins around below the bottom rack. It is amazing what gets clogged in there.

Loud sounds


Many Frigidaire dishwashers come with the promise of being the "quietest dishwasher in its class," according to Frigidaire. However, a quiet dishwasher doesn't necessarily mean that the dishwasher is silent, as some noises are normal. It can take some troubleshooting at times to determine if a noise coming from the dishwasher is typical or if it indicates a larger problem Listen for the sound of water filling and draining throughout the wash cycle. These sounds are normal and do not indicate an issue.

  • 2 Pay attention to the drain motor, which operates at the beginning of each cycle. This noise should be fairly quiet and should not sound like a loud, grinding or banging sound.
  • 3 Note that the sound will change when the wash cycle moves between the lower and middle spray arms. This sound should be temporary and fairly quiet.
  • 4 Look for hard items in the dishwasher grinder or filter if a loud crunching, buzzing or grinding sound is heard. The dishwasher can typically grind up these items within one or two cycles, but the item may be lifted out and discarded to eliminate the sound.
  • 5 Remove the bottom rack and spray arms from the bottom of the dishwasher if there is a loud noise coming from the dishwasher that does not resolve itself. Look inside for the impeller, which is round and spins. Remove any debris that may be clogging up the impeller or pump.

    My 6 year old Whirlpool dishwasher is loud


    This is a bad wash pump. Looking at about $175 for just the sump assembly. You could do it yourself, but unit would need to be uninstalled.

    Moved homes and took old dishwasher to new home (about 3yrs old), now seems the machine is loud (sounds like disposal is louder) all insullation is still on machine. we did go fom carpet floor to tile...


    make sure your unit is secured properly[screwed up into counter and leveled], to minimise vibration. other wise you may want to try putting some insulation behind the kick plate.

    Loud noise


    Check for bones/glass/ceramic from chipped plates in the food chopper (for lack of a better term). You'll need to disassemble the entire lower arm unit.

    Our Frigidaire Ultra Quiet II dishwasher loud buzzing noise- wash


    No longer "ultra quiet" huh?

    A sound during certain cycles indicates a broken part. By the information provided sounds like a pump may be the problem. You may need to contact a service tech about this issue. If the appliance still under warranty, the service should be provided for free.

    Every time when you hear noises (other than the normal ones) in the appliance, it indicates there is something wrong and it will worsen over time, so as soon you hear something is not ok, get assistance.

    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..

    Whirlpool gold Quiet Partner III is really loud.


    now you'll be able too hear under the tub if motor bearing was the noise.put a long tool to the motor and close to you ear,see if that gives you a clue[i don't want you to give up on it if its not the motor]if was to buy that motor wholesale it would be around 50 bucks or so ,retail about 100 or so.so if replacing depends on the shape of the rest of the unit.[i have sold and installed many]new dishwasher on sale 300$ or so,plus your time to install.but if new its a forsure thing.so depends how much motor,how sure you are wiill solve problem,what shape unit in.hope that helps.
