Hi,
Everything you are asking is or can be relative. The noise issues is a matter of personal preference and what is quiet to someone else may not be to you...
Make sure that ALL parts were installed and installed correctly. If the blanket that often covers the dishwasher to absorb noise gets pushed off or bunched up the dishwasher can be very noisy. If the kickplate insulation is missing the appliance will be noisy. To check these parts the dishwasher may have to be pulled out, checked, and reinstalled.

The times also can be dependent on the loading, the amount of food on the dishes that you are washing and the water pressure of the water coming in to the dishwasher. without knowing all of these things I cannot give you an answer that could be taken and used with any reliability.

Speaking VERY generally I would expect the normal to last somewhere around and hour, the pots and pans to be 1.5 hours and the smart wash to last somewhere from and hour to two hours....that one is really variable!

I really hope that this gives you the info you are looking for and that it has helped you out!

Quiet Partner IV. Why is the pots and pans light blinking and it won't run?


Its normal for the drain pump to run for 5 to 15 seconds and then your washer should fill and you wash pump should run if your was pump is not running and just makes a humming sound then your start capacitor may need changing see the link below this is a simple task and not expensive. When ordering a new capacitor make sure it is the same size in ?F.

The kenmore elite smart wash quiet pak 9 I opened the door and threw something else in and now a light is on thar says controls locked and it wont do anything


There should be a button on the control panel that says "open door" you need to push that button and wait for the washer to shut off before you open the door. Try pushing that button to see if that resets. My guess is that you broke the safety latch when you opened the door and it will need repair.

Well, Larry, it sounds as if you've tried just about everything.... except replacing the control console (with keypad), and if everything else is okay, then that is PROBABLY your problem.

Our Frigidaire Ultra Quiet II dishwasher loud buzzing noise- wash


No longer "ultra quiet" huh?

A sound during certain cycles indicates a broken part. By the information provided sounds like a pump may be the problem. You may need to contact a service tech about this issue. If the appliance still under warranty, the service should be provided for free.

Every time when you hear noises (other than the normal ones) in the appliance, it indicates there is something wrong and it will worsen over time, so as soon you hear something is not ok, get assistance.

Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher - Blinking Quick Rinse Light


I had the same flashing light problem first the normal wash flashing light then the others. I tried shuting of the breakers but nothing. I tried resetting the panel by pushing normal wash and heated dry simultaneously and nothing. So I took the six screws holding the front panel out and unplugged the ribbon type wires and plug and unplugged it several times to help make a better contact and I was able to get it to work right away. This may not work for all but I worked for me. It is very easy to do and it's worth a try if you're having the same problem. It took me less then 10 minutes.
