Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

I have an 18" Frigidaire dishwasher that broke the day after the warranty expired. When I turned it on, it made a loud shrieking sound, but then continued the cycle. When I returned, the unit was full of water (up to the float) and the dishes were dirty. I only used it once a month, so a friend said the pump probably dried out. Any suggestions? Purchased November 2002.

What do I do with a one year old Frigidaire dishwasher that rinses and empties no matter what cycle it is set on. Jusy started doing this 2 weeks ago. I've tried everything in the instruction book?


I would personally contact fridgidaire direct or the retailer that you purchased it from and see what they suggest, sounds like an electronic fault in the control panel

Frigidaire 18" dishwasher arm is not spinning, and dishwasher is making a very loud noise.


Hi Ellie, this is AP!

I understand you are experiencing some trouble with your Frigidaire built-in dishwasher. Without knowing the exact model number I would assume there are two spray arms on this dishwasher, are both arms not moving or just one? Keep in mind that some dishwashers have two spray arms that turn at alternate times. They will never move at the same time. The changing of the arms starts at different times depending model and will continue through the end of the selected wash cycle.
If you can provide the model number for the dishwasher I should be able to provide you with the instructions to remove the spray arms or you could contact the manufacture they may supply it to you also. You could also apply rinse aid to the junction between the spray arms and mount to see if it will relieve the arm to spin. If not, please reply back with the model number so I could provide a more educated response.

Best Wishes,

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.

    The dishwasher stopped working after one use. doesnt have and water running through it.


    Make sure the under-sink water connection valve didn't get turned off by someone. Also, check the entire length of the inlet water line for any kinks or pinches. Does the machine make a loud 'click' (the inlet water solenoid) when it calls for water. If no click and no water comes in, remove the lower front panel and inspect the water solenoid--it should have two wires coming to it. If ok, suggest calling for warranty service (if machine is new) at this point. Good luck!

    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.

    Load crunching noise


    The motor has a 2 to 5 year warranty so if that's what the repair guy says I would go ahead and have it repaired. The noise can come from the pump, impellers or the motor. But if he's sure that's where it's coming from have it fixed by the repair service under warranty.

    Dishwasher motor crapout


    The dishwasher says kenmore but it is made by whirlpool or frigidaire. If the cost of repair exceed 2/3rds of the cost of a new one it would be best to replace it. Whirlpool makes good models. Their line of kitchenaid seem to be the quietest.
