Question about KitchenAid 24 in. KUDS01FLSS Built-In Dishwasher

Door noise I have two of these models and both have the same horrific, grinding noise when you open the door. It seems to be coming from inside the door - not at the hinge. Lubricating the hinge did not work.

Hello,

Common issue with this dishwasher. Easy fix though!! KitchenAid uses a nylon string that connects the hinges to the springs located along the bottom edges of the dishwasher. I had to pull mine out to perform this service. The nylon string seems to dry out and vibrates as the door opens and closes. All that needs to be done is put some Vaseline or other appropriate lubrication all over the nylon string. Especially where it passes through the roller and stationary guide. That will take care of any squeeking or grinding when opening or closing the door. Be careful as your door will now open just like it did when it was new. Now if I can only figure out how to keep my door from popping open during wash cycles!!!

Nissan micra central locking locks but makes a grinding sound on on side of the car.


Put your ear to the door and listen to where the grinding/buzzing noise is coming from when you lock the door, sometimes it maybe more than one door! The door it's coming from need a door actuator, common fault with the k12 micra's, which i'm guessing this is a k12 model!

HI
If you don't hear a click 3 times your building up fine ground coffee inside the box that the door works. Your ground is probably to fine and you are using a shiney bean which has more oils in it. Your big dial inside the bean hopper should be on 10-12 and the small knob should be turned down to the neutral position. You might for the first try turn the big dial up to 16 and see if it will work. If it doesn't your going to have to clean the grinder. This is what grinding to fine does. It cakes the grounds.

Can't reattach the door to the trolley and grinding noise, won't move


Pull straight down on the rope and release. Then you should be able to run the opener and the two halves of the trolley will click together. Sometimes you need move the door by hand to get this done. The grinding noise is most likely the drive gear stripping. Remove the cover from the motor unit and it should be obvious.

HEAR A GRINDING TYPE SOUND FROM OPENER MOTOR DOOR STOPED ABOUNT 1/3 WAY UP.


Remove the cover from the motor unit and I am sure you will find white sawdust inside. The drive gear is most likely stripped. It is a white nylon gear just in front of the motor. The part number is 41A2817 and is available at any good door opener service company. It will come with instructions.

Amana Bottom Freezer door when shut starts a noise


The light is switched on and off by a small lever which is pushed when closing or opening the door. This operates a microswitch. It would not make any grinding noise. Grinding noise can come from the fanmotor which would also stop when the fridge door is open.

you will need to replace the fan the reason it stops it the door switch needs to be closed for the fan to operate. with the door open press the switch and see if that is in fact where the noise is coming from if so it sounds like the bearings are going out
