Remove all the filters and looking down into the sump, at approx 10 o'clock you should see a plastic cover with a tx20 screw. Remove the screw and cover, this will expose the pump impellor, check it is free and remove any obstruction (caution advised as there may be a shard of glass etc). With the cap off set a cycle, close the door and immediately open door and reset the unit. (check how to do this from your user manual, usually holding the start button for 5secs, or pressing two buttons simultaneously marked by a line and two dots on the selection panel but models vary). You should hear the pump run and any debris will be expelled into the tank. Check the impellor again, replace the cap and screw. Do a visible check of the tank to see if any obstruction were 'spat out' by the pump. Check your outlet pipe, particularly if it is attached under the sink via a spigot for blockages. Run a prewash or quick cycle to test. I really hope this solves the problem, if you need to repost or comment for additional advise please add the full Enr number. All the best and good luck

Dishwasher is making a loud noise


Sounds like there is something in the filter trap that is right before the mini disposal that is a fan blade, on top of the motor.

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.

    Noise Drain Motor? No Cloged


    The Bosch units do have a little noisier drain pump than most other units, so if you don't hear a grinding sound it probably isn't something you would worry about, BUT if it is grinding, then it is a sign that either something got sucked into the pump or that the pump is starting to fail.

    Dishwasher won't clean properly anymore.


    sounds like the hose is clogged... i used to fix these.
    first check to make sure the drain inside of the dishwasher (located on the bottom usually towards the back) does not have food clogging the drain. if there is nothing there than its more than likely a hose underneath the dishwasher. make sure you turn the water off before trying to fix this.

    Kenmore dishwasher


    Mine eventually "fixed itself". I think some debris got caught and eventually (5 cycles or so) got ground up and sent through the drain. The noise changed each time it got closer "flushing out"
