Just placing a fiberglass batt over the cabinet exterior will quiet it down considerably. Use some thin synthetic cord to tie it in place so that it doesn't crawl off from vibration. If still noisy, remove the door interior panel and check for any insulation there. If there is any appreciable gap at the sides or top, you may need to staple insulation around the interior of the cabinet opening. I'm surprised that they were that lax in noise suppression. Hope this helps!

I just pulled out my Kenmore built in dishwasher which was installed 4 years ago and see what looks like a blanket of sorts draped over the top and down the sides. Is this some kind of packing material...


The blanket you are referring to is not packaging material. This is an insulator blanket that not only keeps the underside of countertop and adjacent cabinets shielded from the heat of the dishwasher tub, but also provides a noise barrier. Without it, the dishwasher may genrate more noise, and you may feel more radiant heat given off when the dishwasher heats the water. This is supposed to remain in place and should not be removed.

The soap dispenser on our BOSCH dishwasher, SHE4AM, won't open during washing cycles. Please help


Hi
Dishwashers use Bi-Metal strip to allow the dispenser to open/close. This strip when heat up causes the soap door spring to open up the dispenser. If this strip is not heated doesn't allow the door to open. The strip may not be getting 120V or maybe disconnected. Newer (plastic liner) Maytag dishwashers use a wax motor to open the soap dispenser. The plunger inside the wax motor slowly moves and pushes the plunger and door open. And, if this wax motor doesn't receive 120 volts, then it'll not work. Please check the voltage to the wax motor/Bi-metal strip; also inspect the connections to these. Hope this helps...

Making loud noises when washing, nothing is obstructing the top and bottom wash arms and the dishes are clean when the cycle is over.


Is there a chance the dishes are moving when the machine is on? Cound the water jets(spraying the door and sides) be the cause of the noise. Is the sound insulating blanket on the outside of the machine? Try running empty on a shor cycle to help diagnose the problem.

i would check to see if you are using the factory drain hose or if you have extended the hose to reach the sink drain.
the only other thing that might cause this would be a restriction in the hose at the drain pump outlet, but check the drain hose first.

Dishwasher insulation for heat


Hi marseibold,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your questoin is: You're wondering if you can further insulate your dishwasher for heat. You are redoing your kitchen, new appliances, cabinets, etc. and shortsightedly put the spice sliding pull-out cabinet next to the dishwasher. The spices get warm when you use the dishwasher. There is a bit of room between the cabinet and dishwasher. Any recommendations for further insulation?

Yes. I would get another insulation blanket off a d/w I'm disposing. Anyway, you need to get one and install it over the old one to decrease the heat transfer.

Feel free contact me again!
