If your unit is less than 1 year old have LG come out and fix it.....If not your problem is going to be within the sump assembly....You would need to replace complete sump assembly...The assembly is very weakly made..</p>

i think that this is the same whislte that yr hearing please listen to this video that I am sending you http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aAYhKacLEE4 they really dont make the sumps in these to last most of the time it would be cheaper to buy a sump with motor kit this way you get both pieces new if you buy either of these two pieces seperate you end up spending more money you can also order the kit directly from marcone appliance parts. please remember to rank how this post has helped in your appliance situation and if there is anything else i can do for you please message me back thankyou again and have a great day rickead1

My Whirlpool Quiet Partner II, Model #W10130986A makes a high-pitched squeal when filling, which varies in intensity when I turn the sink faucet off and on. What could this be caused by?


Sounds like a restricted water inlet valve on the dishwasher. Replacing the valve should solve it, if not there may be another issue with your house plumbing.

Lg 3850dd3006e makes noise


I had the same issue with my LG it has a stainless steel impeller the grinds up the food particles and if one of the veins get slightly bent it causes that problem. The tack took it out straightened it out until the new part arrived and it worked fine. He did return to replace it but I don't think it was needed

There is a loud noise while going through final stages of wash. Sounds like pump motor whineing.


Hello

When an appliance such as a dishwasher starts making a new noise, you need to isolate the cause of the noise so that you know whether or not it is damaging the machine. Several things can cause a noisy dishwasher.

Motor

Dishwashers are driven by an internal motor that gets quite noisy when defective. The problem occurs when a seal breaks down and allows water to access the bearings in the motor, removing the grease needed for proper lubrication and creating a loud motor noise when the dishwasher runs. The seal or bearings need to be replaced in this situation quickly or more extensive damage to the motor may occur.

Inlet Valve

If the inlet valve on your dishwasher is broken or breaking, you will hear a distinctive thumping or clattering noise whenever a load is run. A thumping noise doesn't always indicate this problem, however, depending on when you hear it. If you hear a noise like this when the water is filling up the dishwasher at the start of the cycle, the noise likely points to an inlet valve problem.

Squealing

A high-pitched squealing noise is an indication that something is wrong with the fan. Fan bearings that are worn out indicate that the fan apparatus needs to be replaced. If the noise you're hearing is in fact coming from the fan, it will only occur when the dishwasher is drying the dishes. Dishwashers use a fan to generate and distribute heat to dry the dishes quickly.

Minor Concerns

Sometimes even a minor concern can cause a great deal of noise. The thing to watch for is whether or not the noise repeats itself on multiple loads. A loud noise on a single load that doesn't repeat could be caused by things like a loose utensil or small implement rattling around loose in the dishwasher. Also inspect the bottom of your dishwasher. Hardened bits of old food can become rock hard under the heat in the dishwasher and cause noise when the unit runs.

Dishes are not getting clean. There is a high pitched squealing noise when it runs. Its very hot inside when the cycle is done.


Hi - I dont do repairs for these mid range appliances - however I believe the problem is with the dirt caught in the jets and through the water reticulation.

Try - take the arms off top/bottom if applicable and run the machine and check your pressure from the pumps and have a nosy the if there ae any blockages of the jets as these will give the indications of the symptoms you have posted..

Good luck

I hear a high pitch squeal some times when its running a normal cycle????


hair or wire or wrapped lint around the blades that grid the food. Had to dissassemble from inside the unit, pull out blade, remove hair, reassemble - really hard. Get the rubbers just right. It's a 30 min job yourself. just start pulling out all the screws around the bottom on the inside.

High pitched squeal


Hi...

Does the squeal come from the TV cabinet or the speaker?
If from the cabinet , it's most likely the Horizontal high-voltage section of the set.
Find someone that's good with hand tools,unplug the set from the wall outlet, let it sit for a good 30 minutes.
have someone open up the back of the set and dust out and vacuum out any dust from inside the set.
Put back together and try it out.
