1 Answer

Noise, Noise, NOISE

My Kenmore 665.17532 sounds like a cat being tortured! A very loud cat at that. I can barely hear the TV in an adjacent room with the door closed.This noise has been going on for months; washing is ok tho.
Nothing found in the chopper or accumulator.

    You may be right about the bearings but, the rotor turns freely without any apparent roughness. Will let you know outcome if I can id the problem with any certainty. Thanks for your time.

Barring an actual cat being inside the dishwasher, I would surmise that the motor bearings are starved for lubricant, which is something that is not normally done. Sounds like its time for a new dishwasher

    You are very welcome, and thank you for the generous rating!



    Another thought came to mind. I have heard some dishwashers give off a high pitched squealing sound. This was found to be caused by the main water seal and drain impeller, located just above the motor. Replacing this may resolve your kitty cat issue.



    Keep me posted, and thanks again.

Emerson EWC20D3 20 in. TV/DVD Combo what is that loud whining noise from the back


What happens in this case is a small transformer or the high voltage transformer vibrate hard enough to make that sound--not loose or bad but can cause the vibration.

I have seen in customer's homes where it was loud enough to chase cats right out of the room even in a large room.

Two ways to deal with this----with the set apart locate the part by ear or even probing with a plastic tool---when you press close to it, the sound will diminish or go away.

Believe it or not (in our shop) once located we use a hot glue gun to take the sound away---

usually if very loud it is the high voltage transformer on the main TV board (see photo of a typical one) not on the black part but on the iron like (it is a different material) core that looks like a U bolt.

it can irritate but poses no danger.

My sansui tv makes a loud high pitch noise. I have had it 3 years, it is a a riging noise, and hard to hear the tv shows. what do i do?


ever since for ever, ive always heard a loudish high pitched ring from analog tv's. e.g. i would know a tv was on in another room even if it was muted. ive told other people about it but they dont seem to hear what i hear. so im gonna geuss either

a. analog tv's all make that noise to a verying degree but most people just dont notice it or subconciously cancle it out as normal.

b. its a kind of hyper sensitivity to high pitched noise, in essence, tinitus.

on a final note, its not medical as i always pass my hearing tests. but to answer your question, either buy a digital tv or turn up the volume.

Ambient sound is louder than the music


Hi,
I have a Mac (OS X 10.5.7) and had the same problem with the Ion TTUSB system picking up room noise. This seemed to fix it: 
In System Preference, under Hardware, choose "Sound".
Choose "Input".
Under "Choose a device for sound input" choose USB Audio CODEC  type: USB

I hope this helps,
Cheers!

Vacuum making loud noise (like hole in tube)


I have the same vacuum - it's a clog in the brush area, or where the hose connects to the base. Unhook the hose, like you're going to use a tool. Lay the vacuum flat, so you can stick something in the plastic tube (at the base where you disconnected the hose) without the awkward angle. I use a dryer vent cleaner, but you could probably use a wire hanger. Push through until it comes out through the brush area...should fix your problem.

Loud Noise - Spin Cycle


If the washer is making a squealing noise, the problem is more likely to be the basket drive. If it is more like a rattling sound, the centerpost bearings are probably worn out. Open machine's rear panel and spin the basket manually by turning the drive pulley, to find out from where exactly the noise come from. Defective part should be replaced. Good luck !!
