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
Listen for the sound of water filling and draining throughout the washcycle. These sounds are normal and do not indicate an issue.
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
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.
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
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.

Dishes are not getting washed, cyles through , Believe the inside Top Nozzle is not getting any water up the tub to the top of the washer ?? Not sure hoo to fix this ?
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.
have you ever seen green led "Clean" light flashing? before or about the same time the buzzing sound started? and if so that would indicate that the control senses a fault in the temperature rise during the heating cycle and that the electronic control could be reset by initiating a service diagnostic cycle.(which is what you were trying to do) pls reread your manual there are times during that sequence that some buttons have to be pushed at the same time and within a certain amount of time..possible that your machine also has a bad timer which would give you a buzzing noise..if thats the case I would recommend replacing the cpu or control board..or the machin all together..The Kenmore Ultra Wash Quiet Guard name is sears but whirpool has the contract to produce all "kenmore products.hope that helps.
First check the electrical supply. I have seen dozens of dishwashers which did not have the hot wire connected tightly enough (inside the connection box behind the lower panel). Sometimes the loose wire caused the breaker to blow. If you have control lights but the dishwasher will not start it could be a bad door latch saftey switch. $10 part, cheap. Hope this helps, Ken
Most of these dishwashers have separate circulation and drain pumps and there is a good chance that there is an issue with the circulation pump impeller issue under the lower wash arm. The bottom panels under the door can be removed to check it out.
