Hi

Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. Check the drain hose for any visible clogging, remove if present. If no visible lint is present then remove then turn off the dishwasher and remove the drain hose and check for any visible clogging. If still not visible then the drain filter or drain pump is clogged and you’ll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump. The noise you are hearing is from the drain pump.

Please note that dishwashers don’t drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn’t overheat.

Please post back for any further assistance.

My LG Wahining machine is making a rattling noise and will not spin or drain.


For the washer to spin, it must first drain the water out of the tub. Since you are hearing a rattling noise, and your washer will not drain, most likely the problem is the drain motor itself. The impeller wears out on the shaft, and start to wobble, and make a vibrating/rattling noise.

Washer makes high pitched noise after draining


This is due to the fact that the draim pump is still running DRY and so makes the high pitch noise. Check the timer or reset to a low spin dry cycle. If not check the drain circuit power using a multimeter from the program controller unit.IF there is power and the motor makes noise then remove and check if the pump is clogged, clean and reset.

My HE2 front load wouldn't drain & spin and was making noises below. i called Affordable Repair and they said the control panel had to be replaced for $200 + labor. i said the noise is coming from u


Hi.

The noise coming from underneath is symptom of a problem with drain pump or drain line.

The standard procedure consists in accessing the drain filter to check if it is blocked, then testing drain pump. Most of the time the noise is caused by blockage at drain filter. In some case the pump is gone.

The control panel gets replaced only after checking drain filter, testing drain pump and also after testing the water pressure switch that determines when to start or stop the pump.

Bye.

When dishwasher is draining it makes a very loud noise but it does drain


May be solenoid valve makes a thud noise. It is normal.

But if it was silent during earlier days usage and the noise is notice now, then check it's mounting. For this you have to open the back door of your machine.

Makes buzzing noise and won't spin or drain


Sounds like something is stuck in the drain pump.  If nothing is stuck in the pump replace the pump.  It won't spin until it drains, so fixing the drain problem will fix the spin.  You can get at the drain pump by taking off the bottom panel.

Neptune washer makes horrible noise - now won't drain


Does the washer make noise while the drum is spinning? Or, is making noise when the drain pump comes on? If the drum is spinning and making a lot of noise the rear bearings are usually bad. They cannot be removed from the drum, however. The entire outer tub shell has to be replaced, because the bearings are molded into the plastic. If it's only making noise when the drain pump comes on during the drain cycle, your drain pump may be obstructed in some way, or the pump itself could be bad. Getting inside the machine to check either component is not easy, because the door has to be removed, along with the front panel, rubber door seal, and top of the machine. Sorry, this may not be an easy fix for you. But, I hope I can lead you in the right direction. Let me know if you need further guidance.
