Question about Kenmore 16602 / 16604 / 16609 Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Loud Screaming!! My kenmore cleans fine, but makes an ear piercing screaming sound during the wash. Was told by an appliance guy something could be caught in the impeller. Could this be the case and how can I fix it?

Try turning the impeller by hand (one finger should do it) with the machine off to see if you can feel any drag on it.
This thing should turn very easy and rotate a little on its own if you spin it up a bit. They are normally not directly driven but propelled into rotation by the force of the water which is dependent on a recirculating pump
If it shudders to a stop, the primitive 'bearing' may be worn requiring replacement.

My dyson dc24 brush bar will not turn and there is a very loud screaming noise coming from the Hoover


Something has jammed the brush roller and the screaming sound is the motor shaft trying to move the stuck drive belt. The vacuum will have to be disassembled to find and remove the jamming material.

Roomba is squealing


Sounds like it needs to be taken apart and cleaned. Turn it over on it's back. Press down and release the two buttons that hold the cover. Take out the two spinning bars, clean all hair and thread off. Check ends of the bars to remove hair there. Reinsert bars noting the one end with square has to be fitted in properly for each bar. Often at this point you'll find something too pick or heavy to make it into the filter compartment, just remove it and replace cover. Next open filter compartment, Remove filter and clean.

Peace Friend,
ngfam1 At your service!

1-it may be the belt squealing or high pitched nosies telling you it wants to go!
2- It more than likely is the rolling suspension that the drum spins on!I've seen the older models with one of 3 wheels that the drum rolls on is worn and wobbling or screaming or screeching etc.
3- I've seen also a few times that the motors heat shield, a simple piece if tin with two screws or bolts holding it down was "loose" and vibrating causing a loud metal squeal noise all the time or intermittently!!
If I were there hands on I could fix it!

Only a trained laundry tech can make the electronic diagnoses.


Unfortunely, another point to consider!!
How old is the appliance?

If the appliance is 10 years old or more you it may not be advisable to put good money into bad!
New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!!!!
Water,Electric and detergent! And put money back in your pocket!
The new appliance will pay for itself in only a few years!

You will be fine
Bless You ngafm1

Very loud squealing noise in spinn.


If your Maytag is a top loader equipped with a vertical transmission under the tub, the squealing may be coming from, either the brake assembly, or the snubber which the entire pedestal rides on.  Could you please post back comments and let me know if this is the type of washer you have?

Loud screaming sound during spin cycle


The screaming noise is probably from a dry bearing in the motor, it will probably come and go and shouldnt cause to much problem, they are supposed to be self lubricating but sometime they run dry.
