    I have the same problem. It sounds like there is something bouncing around with the water in the motor. maybe something got caught in there that should not have.

    Mine too. I've taken apart the spinner on the base inside the bin and removed the 4 screws holding it down ....nothing seems caught. Sounds like a grinding of sand or something like that with a buzzing.

    Dishwasher makes a "buzzing noise" while running

  • Steime123 Jul 12, 2008

    I have a load buzz when the dishwasher is running. I removed a small marble and a rusty screw from the bottom section, but the hum remains. Seems to do it the entire time water is moving in there. All screws are rusty. Should that be? I am going to run it again. Dishes do get clean, but I worry that I am making the problem worse.

    Same loud grinding sound and it sounds like it's near the door when it is closed. Only happening when water is in motion and on every mode.

    buzzing noise just started a few minutes after dishwasher turned on. Fills with water and drains ok.



    Thanks,

    Jennifer

Mine eventually "fixed itself". I think some debris got caught and eventually (5 cycles or so) got ground up and sent through the drain. The noise changed each time it got closer "flushing out"

Dishwasher is making a loud noise


Sounds like there is something in the filter trap that is right before the mini disposal that is a fan blade, on top of the motor.

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 dishwasher is just 6 months old and started making a humming sound while washing in th wash cycle.


    If you hear unusual noises during dishwasher operation, check to see if a dish or cup is loose and being knocked around during the wash cycle. If you hear grinding, grating, crunching or a buzzing sound, chances are a hard object has gone into the wash module. Once the object is ground up, the noises should cease.

    I have an kenmore elite "ultra wash" model 665. not sure the rest.. about 7/8 years old, making loud buzzing sound during wash cycles,starts about 5 minutes into the normal wash cycle. i removed the inlet...


    I have the same problem as those who stated their dishes are not getting clean. If you listen to the wash cycle you should hear water sloshing around inside. If you hear just a humming sound the washer has no water. I have this problem. I had a tech come and he told me the water is syphoning out my drain and I need to change my plumbing, then he charged me $65. I have lived in this house for ten years. 6 with the washer that came with house and 4 with this Kenmore Elite. This problem started about 6 months ago. So what I have been doing is opening the door, after the humming starts and the sloshing stops, and adding about 2 L of water. It seems to wash just fine after that.

    Buzzing Sound at Base of Unit does not go away


    If everything is working as it should - the problem may be with the motor.
    Either the starter is starting to fail, or it may have gotten wet. Check for leaks around the base, and be prepared to eventually replace the motor.
    If you can deal with the humming, there is no reason to replace it at this time, and there is nothing you can do to quiet the noise.

    Thanks for using FixYa!

    My Kenmore Elite dishwasher makes a buzzing noise when going through the wash cycle. It's a couple years old and I don't want to replace it!


    the possible causes.it could be some hard debris near the chopper blade inside the pump or some times water seal on the pump goes bad and water leaks into the motor bearing/rusting it and starts grinding noise.open the pump from inside and reach the choper blade and look for any hard debris.if find nothing then motor assly needs to be chgd.

    Loud Buzzing Sound from Dishwasher


    have you ever seen green led "Clean" light flashing? before or about the same time the buzzing sound started? and if so that would indicate that the control senses a fault in the temperature rise during the heating cycle and that the electronic control could be reset by initiating a service diagnostic cycle.(which is what you were trying to do) pls reread your manual there are times during that sequence that some buttons have to be pushed at the same time and within a certain amount of time..possible that your machine also has a bad timer which would give you a buzzing noise..if thats the case I would recommend replacing the cpu or control board..or the machin all together..The Kenmore Ultra Wash Quiet Guard name is sears but whirpool has the contract to produce all "kenmore products.hope that helps.

    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.

    Makes a loud buzzing sound when washing


    This buzzing sound can be from a couple things. A lose a lose kick/access panel when the motor and pump is in operation can cause a slight vibrating noise. Try tightening securing the dishwasher and kick/access panel.

    Second, (most likely) their can be an obstruction or debris in the water pump. You may see a plastic grid (4" x 6"; filter like) in the right rear of your dishwasher; Try removing the grid (1 or 2 screws 1/4"/cross tip), then use a dry-vac to remove any debris. *

    Safety: As a beginning, please remember to perform the repairs with the power-off and ensure you have water in the dishwasher before restarting the water pump cycle (the water-pump can become damaged while dry-spinning and water enters the pump suddenly)
