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.

Hi, I have a Kenmore quietquard dishwasher model number 587.14012406a and it's making a loud noise throughout the wash it then stops and then restarts which is a vibrating noise and is extremely loud!


suggestion, i suspect you have got something in the wash pump or the pump impeller is breaking up this can cause a vibrating noise or it could be the rince pump.

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.

Jenn air dishwasher- making loud noise in operating cycle


Hi I am Vortash by the sound of what you are descibing your pump bearings seem to be shot , although it is making this sound is it still washing properly if so it confirms it is the bearing and not the impeller catching and making the noise the pump gets to quite a high pressure to wash the dishes .. sort of an enclosed hot jet wash the force of which drives the spray arms .. so I am afraid it looks like you will soon need a replacement pump.. sorry to bare bad news .. Regards Vortash

Intermittent mechanical noise in kitchen


is it loud? does it seem to vibrate? could be a drain pump. could be a motor wearing also. try a vinegar bath.

put a bowl in the bottom rack and fill it with a cup or two of white vinegar. then start a wash cycle. the acids from the vinegar help to breakdown any calcium buildup that could be slowing down the pumps.

Loud clanking noise in dishwasher


Most likely the motor as food caught in the sump would not make a noise you described.
