Hi,

If this happens throughout most of the wash cycle and is a grinding type noise it could be one of two things. The first is a bad bearing on the motor which goes bad due to a seal leak on the pump. If this is the case the pump and motor need replaced.

The second cause could be some debris caught in the chopper area of the sump. I have put together some instructions on how to clean it out. If you are interested in doing so follow the link below.

Let me know if you have questions.

The dishwasher control panel must be defective, nothing else would cause this.

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.

    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.

    Our LG LDF7920st dishwasher (6 months old)makes a whistling noise


    Hey, consider the float assembly!

    We bought this dishwasher and ran it for the last 1 1/2 months and it made a grinding and whistling sound from day one (it's supposed to be nearly silent in its operation). Turns out the drain pump was cutting in while the machine was still filling, thereby emptying the wash tub of any water. Then, when the cycle proceeded to wash, the dumb thing had no water and made a horrible noise. So I had to pitch in at least 2-3 litres of hot water, and then it worked quietly! Had to do this every time there was new water intake.

    After working with the repairmen - four visits later, we isolated the float assembly as the problem and they set about replacing the part. Turns out the two parts were markedly different. LG HAD INSTALLED an older model float assembly at the factory and it was the problem. The replacement part was the correct float assembly and things worked perfectly after that - thank goodness. No more babysitting the dishwasher.

    Don't let anyone tell you the motor assembly needs replacement. I have seen that cop-out 'fix' all over the web. But use deductive reasoning to find out where the problem is in the cycle, and explore this option first - it's a quicker and cheaper fix than replacing the whole motor assembly.

    'Mr. Float' as he is now called works like this:
    -expels any residual water in the tub from the last wash
    -intakes water for the wash or rinse
    -whirs 2-3 times prepping for the cycle
    -begins to wash, quietly
    -expels at the end of the wash or rinse.

    He used to:
    -expel residual water
    -intake new water for wash or rinse
    ---drain pump would cut in WHILE still filling
    -machine would whir once, realize it didn't have enough water
    -perform a brief top-up intake shot
    -begin to wash and whistle and GRIND (this is where I would have to add the water)
    -expels water from wash or rinse, and start all over again.

    It's a good dishwasher and it will work, but the right model parts have to be in place!

    Kenmore Ultrawash Quiet Guard 5 making buzzing/grinding noise


    I have a very similar dishwasher, with a very similar problem. I fixed it by removing debris from the water evacuator pump located towards the front of the bottom of the machine (the last motor before the drain hose. In my case, grape stems had clogged it up. Once emptied, it purrs once again. NOTE: don't disassemble the motor, just flush it out, there is an o-ring gasket that is a bear to re-install.

    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..

    Kenmore quiet pak III dishwasher has a whining noise


    Most of these dishwashers have separate circulation and drain pumps and there is a good chance that there is an issue with the circulation pump impeller issue under the lower wash arm. The bottom panels under the door can be removed to check it out.
