Loud Noise from Maytag JetClean Dishwasher

Hello,

The past 2 times I have tried to turn on my Maytag JetClean dishwasher within a matter of minutes I get a very loud noise.

I have checked inside and see nothing banging around or loose.

I have immediately shut it off when I hear this.

Also, right before this, I had been having problems with getting the top rack clean.

Thank you so much :)
Michelle

If your dishwasher seems noisy, check these:

Water-inlet valve
Motor
Heater fan
Pump


Water-inlet valve
An aging water-inlet valve can sometimes fail slowly, rather than all at once. It can shudder on and off rapidly, causing the incoming water lines to shake, rumble, and rattle--sometimes violently. If yours is doing this, replace the inlet valve.

Motor
If it's the motor that's noisy, either of these may be the "culprit:"

  • As motor bearings wear out, they can become quite loud when the motor runs. They wear out quickly if they frequently get wet, because the water washes away the motor bearing grease. Bearings can get wet if the spin seal is defective. Then there will also be water leaking onto the floor beneath the dishwasher. Replace the seal if it leaks (read about the main tub seal in the "It leaks" section, later).
  • If, from beneath the dishwasher, you can see a round, plastic disc that's mounted to the top of the motor (a "slinger"), it may have broken free of the motor shaft. If so, it could be rattling around the shaft while the motor is running. If that's the problem, you need to replace the motor.

Heater fan
If the heater fan bearings are rusted or worn, they may squeal, or scrape loudly during the drying cycle. If this is the problem, replace the fan motor. Alternatively, the fan blade may be loose. If so, you need to replace it.

Pump
Small fruit pits, toothpicks, and fragments of glass sometimes get stuck in the pump. When this happens, open the pump and remove the debris. The pump is usually mounted directly to the motor, then attached to the bottom of the dishwasher.

To get to the pump, you usually need to remove the lower rack, the spray arms, and the spray arm support from the inside of your dishwasher. A dishwasher pump isn't obvious. Look for an impeller--a round, plastic fan blade-type device that spins around and pushes the water toward the drain. When you can see the drain impeller, you should be able to see the clogging debris.

Looks like an issue with the spray arm. Check the bearings, and try moving it around a bit to see if it rotates properly. Also make sure that there is nothing hindering its movement..

Here is the parts diagram for your model:

Look at diagram #7 the upper spray arm should just unsnap.

The grinding, clicking sound would be your blower motor in diagram #1.

Very noisy wash cycle


most times i have found a foriegn object in the pump. sometimes the machine will clear it itself but other times you have to take the pump apart. it is not too difficult but you will need a size T15 and T20 Torx aka (star) bit to get it apart. Just keep taking out screws until the filter flowplate lifts off.

Loud noise


Check for bones/glass/ceramic from chipped plates in the food chopper (for lack of a better term). You'll need to disassemble the entire lower arm unit.

Loud Grating sound like gears stripping


There are a couple of possible problems that may be associated with your dishwasher.

1) Something got past the screen and is lodged in the pump.

2) I just fixed one that had the fan blade fall off of the motor and was rattling around on the shaft. This style motor has been updated and no longer has this problem.

You may need to replace the motor/pump assembly if it is damaged.

Maytag dishwasher mdb56000aww


It seems that your motor on the dishwasher is going out, like mine has just done. My explanation is that it sounds like something is grinding on glass or as if a bunch of mice are making noise. Eventually, the motor will not run any more. What will happen is that the dishwasher will fill up, then make a loud humming noise, while the heating element is making the water near the heating element sizzle. Now what you have is a possible fire hazard which compounds the problem with the dishwasher. Get rid of it, take the loss and live like my grandmother used to, without having a dishwasher. That is the best advice I can give you.

Diswasher motor making noise during wash cycle


It could be the impeller on the motor. The impeller fits over the shaft of the motor and might have split/broken up. That funny noise is probably the shaft spinning inside the damage impeller. Fortunately the impeler is fairly inexpensive and easy to replace. I believe there are one or two parts/covers to remove that are held in by a roughly half dozen torx screws.

If the unit is just humming and then cuts itself off, you could have a defective motor. However, this same symptom could be caused by something being caught in the pump assembly.

Maytag dishwasher mdb9600awb - loud pump


This has happened a few times to me as well.(VERY VERY LOUD NOISE AT THE BOTTOM)I have the same model It did stop.I did a little reading and came to the conclusion that it was the built in food disposer chopping blades were chopping up something like a cherry pit or peach pit and once an end of a wooden spoon that dropped down.If you look at your USE and care Guide on page 12 under trouble shooting "Dishwasher seems noisy"..I went through the same thing taking things apart.Its got to be it. Mine is 2 1/2 years as well. Hope this helps. ronkeachie@rogers.com

My manual says: 1- Close door. 2- Select cycle. 3- Press delay. 4- Push Start/Cancel. (As soon as start/cancel is pressed, the flashing should stop and the delay time will begin).
