Question about Electrolux 24 in. EDW5500DSS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Now that you mention it . . .

There's no hum at all. The motor doesn't even sound like it's runnning. The water is coming through just fine, though. Let me pull the spray arm and try to get to the pump.

If you dont hear the motor it is most likely burnt out and just needs replacement. check the connections to ensure it didnt come disconnected. also you could take a multimeter to test to make sure its getting power. I dont know exactly what the motor should be getting but sometimes they have the rating listed on them. But it sounds to me that its just the motor.

let me know how it goes.

Thanks,
Nate

Washer hums but will not fill or start/ spin has water pressure and tub seems to move freely the model #on tag LTF2140ES0


If it doesn't fill it won't start any other cycle unless you move it ahead yourself. If it hums I am thinking it is trying to fill. Sounds like the valve is turning on to let water in but it is not getting through. My washer has a screen where the hoses go on and sometimes the screen becomes plugging with scale. If that is ok then the solenoid must be coming on but the valve is stuck. Does neither hot or cold settings work? Please rate my answer so I am rewarded points for it.

Washer will fill with water but will do nothing else


Hello & Welcome to FixYa
When the dishwasher fills then it means that the control and the water inlet valve are fine, try to hear a different sound like a hum/buzz/click sound. If it is like a hum sound from the bottom panel then it indicates that the motor is bad and needs replacement and if the hum/click comes from the control then it is the timer that is bad and needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Dishwasher fills with water then hums


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

When the dishwasher fills then it means that the control and the water inlet valve are fine, hum sound itself indicates that the motor is bad and needs replacement. If you hear a hum sound from the bottom of the unit then it is the motor that is bad and if the hum comes from the control then it is the timer that is bad and needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Hi our dishwasher fills with water and then never kicks into the wash cycle. It shows wash on the panel but hums real loud. We did replace the water inlet valve thinking that was the problem even though at...


Hello, it sounds like your dishwasher motor is bad. These frigidaire motors go out quite frequently. To replace it, pull out dishwasher and underneath, just disconnect the mount and screws and it'll pop right out. You can probably get a motor online for 100 bucks. Hope this helps,

Washer fills, then just hums for about two minuts and shuts down


Hello
The hum sound is coming from the motor that is probably bad and needs replacement. Hope you understand...the washer fills with water which indicates that the control and the water inlet valve are both fine however, as after this you hear a hum sound it means that the motor is bad. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Not filling with water just making humming noise


You did not mention the make or model of machine. Usually if machine is humming, it is coming from either a fill or drain solenoid or a motor that is bad and will not start.
