SOURCE: Smell??

Check to make sure that the drain hose loops as high as possible before coming back down to the disposer or branch tailpiece drain. If the drain hose just goes straight up to the drain connection, dirty water can seep back into the dishwasher.

SOURCE: Loud Humming noise every time we run the dishwasher

Hi, I had this exact same problem. In my situation it turned out to be the pump that pumps out all of the used water. It was rubbing up against the floor so that every time it turned on it made a loud vibrating sound. I just reached under the washer and put a piece of rubber between it and the floor and it solved the problem.

good luck!

I saw this post because I am considering buying the same model you have. Other than the noise problem you have, what do you think of it?

SOURCE: Kitchenaid dishwasher making funny noises while running

HI. this sounds like a busted impeller in the pump housing. there are two impellers. one for the wash and one for the drain. the drive shaft will strip the impeller center nut, causing this noise. I would inspect the pump housing for lose impeller action. replace the faulty impeller if found to be damaged.

SOURCE: Dishwasher is not functioning properly. It does

you will have to remove drain motor and inspect. Access is normally from the front. once the kick panel is removed and the metal panel as well .If you dont see a drain motor, then it uses the main wash motor to do the drainagev via a solonoid. . check and see if the main motor is not jambed . Often happens. Try and remove pipe connected to plastic motor housing. Once off you can use a spanner to rotate pump blade. If tight, continue to rotate untill it is free. Then reassemble and try.

Our 3 month old ge adora dishwasher stopped working properly yesterday. Made funny noise and later I started smelling something burning. Opened it and noticed no water was in it. Restarted and still n


Sounds like the water inlet valve isn't working. Check your house water pressure and make sure it's not above 80 psi. If it isn't, then call a repair company that handles GE warranty work.

Drum turns but sounds like a small metal object, possibly a screw, banging around inside . Continued to use and now sound is much louder and sounds like a bigger object.


DRYER MAKES NOISES.



The pulleys or rollers. Check for cracks, dryness, or damage and not engaging drum properly. Sometimes u can use high density gear grease to re oil/grease them.



The bearings TEST by moving drum by hand u may be able to feel loose or rough movement. And listen to sounds when turning it.



The belt loose or worn can make funny noises



The glides on drum worn and making metal to metal contact.



CHECK FOR LOOSE BELLOES inside the drum



Sometimes an item can get stuck inbetween the drum and the housing and scrape and grind making funny noises, things like coins, bra wire, nails, hair pins, etc sometimes u can just remove the cabinet and observe by turning the drum by hand or looking for scratch or scrape marks on housing.

I love my floor mate which I bought last year. Now it is making a funny sound and has a weird burning smell. I was told to take it to a repair shop but before spending the money I want to find out if this...


It may be the belt. Sometime the motor spins but the belt is not spinning with it. This causes the belt to heat-up and burn/melt. The burned rubber maybe what you're smelling and sometime make funny noise and hard to push the vacuum.

Burning smell with ticking noise water in bottom but not spraying or draining.


you may want to remove bottom kick plate if you look in there you wil see the main pump housing and to the left is a drain solenid that has a actuator allowing it to move up and down and this is what opens the pump to drain and pump.... alot of times this solenoid will go bad and sometimes literally melt and get stuck causing the odor you are describing and the problems....hope this helps good luck and please vote.....

My asko 3122 dishwasher never heats up


Sounds as though the element burned out I would suggest you have a qualified technition out to confirm and replace so he\she can inspect the machine and see if there is indeed another fualt,the element can blow for a number of reasons but like a light bulb blowing it is electrical and can go at any time,I would not suggest you attempt the repair by yourself unless you have some sort of experiance with this type of thing.
