If you have a load vibration on a dishwasher, one or two things are wrong and maybe both. Bottom line: your machine is not anchored properly, or your feet for the machine are not even. To anchor your machine to the space it is in, you will need to look for the metal 'tabs' that are right under the counter top, these usually have 1 hole in the 'tab' to put a screw in to secure it to the top. If you have a stone or granite top with no wood to secure the screw to, you will need to use some kind of adhesive, like contractor grade double sided tape, or some kind of construction adhesive that you can anchor the 'tab' to the countertop with. If you use a fairly permanent adhesive, it will be hard to remove if you ever decide to do so. The feet adjustment part is easy: all four feet must be turned to adjust the height of the dishwasher so that it fits snug under the countertop. this combined with anchoring the machine will stop the vibrating.

The drain hose vibrates while dishwasher is running unless sink faucet is on, which stops the vibration.

Try throttling back (reducing the water flow) the valve that feeds the machine. With the sink tap/faucet running the pressure into the dishwasher is reduced. Is the feed pipe kinked or blocked in some way as there might be a sensor in the machine that doesn't like it when water is "jetted" in under pressure. It would act like putting your thumb over the end of a hose when washing a car.

There's a bit of a rattling noise when the diswasher is running, as if something is in the pump. I've removed the strainer to see if anything is in there, but nothing. How do I remove the sprayer...

There are some GE dishwashers where the middle spray arm tube vibrates as it washes. This middle spray arm is attached to the top rack. The end of this spray arm tube where it goes into the back wall is loose. There is an after market rubber washer from GE that goes there to prevent vibration and make a tighter seal. Or you can put a tie wrap around the tube end and rack to prevent vibration.

Dish washer 3 1/2 yrs old making a growling/vibrating sound.

The problem is hard water. There is a new product out called the dishwasher filtration system. It filters the water before it enters your dishwasher. It works amazing and has a money back guarantee. You will love the way your dishes look after the first load. It is also very affordable (like 70 bucks). Go to to find out more info.

Bosch dishwasher not letting water in

I think that this is probably the water inlet solenoid. It would tend to vibrate a little if it is trying to open.

It should be a part with an electrical plug going to it and also be hooked up to your water supply.

These are generally not very expensive and easy to replace

Fill valve vibrates loudly

i would look to the valve solenoid as the issue, if not the pressure from the incoming water supply( try decreasing under sink perhaps to high)
