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

Whirlpool dishwasher wont wash


if the bottom tub is filling with water but not washing the issues is with the wash motor, some of this model use a start capacitor that can fail, if it has a capacitor on the side of the motor it may have failed but are difficult to diagnose but are cheap to replace so worth trying, if this doesn't help or if it doesn't have a capacitor then the fault is with the wash motor.

Gene, I have a Kenmore Elite model # 665


Hey Steve,Sorry it took me so long to answer i was offline and my add is not supposed to displayed when i am off line so sorry about that.
Now then on that dishwasher with the hum and no water circulation it sounds as if the main wash motor is jammed up for some reason it could be that the motor itself is defective or as simple as something such a piece of debris such as broken glass or almost anything caught in the motor causing it to not turn on,by disassembling the wash motor you can see if something is caught in,if nothing is caught in its a (sorry to say) the motor itself thats bad and would need to replaced.The reason the water drains even though it will not circulate is because of the separate drain pump that is working Please reply back after disassembling the pump to check for debris if ya need further assistance.
Thanks for using Fixya.Com,GENE

My dishwasher starts humming in middle of cycle and wont go further the rinse cycle works fine


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

Either of these two things can cause this problem: first is the timer motor, if the sound is coming from the control then the timer needs replacement. If the humming comes from the bottom of the unit then it is the motor that needs replacement. When the motor won't work you usually hear humming sound and replacing the motor is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

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.

Kenmore dishwasher fills with hot water but will not wash, just a faint hum. goes through cycle, drains fine, like motor doesn't turn on.


The faint "hum" sound is your wash motor trying to turn on. You either have a piece of glass/tooth pick/ ect.. or a worn out bearing. Its time to change your wash motor. If you do a DIY you can save money over having a service man come out and charge about the cost of a new one.
Best of luck! Please rate me a 4 if that was helpful.

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,

My dishwasher has water going in to it and it drains but it's not making it to the arms, my dishes are still bone dry after all cycles even pre rinse.


it appears ur wash motor is not running.try this-start the unit and let it run for 2 min( this is the water fill period) and after 2 mins u should hear motor running and water splashing sound.u can even open the door and look for water falling from the spray arms.but after 2 mins if u hear only a humming sound and no water splash sound then motor is bad and needs to be chgd.drain motor is seperate for draining the water.

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.
