Hi,
The motor has gone bad...
The loud noise you heard was the bearings going out of the motor....
The filling and draining functions do not use the motor that runs the washer function...

You will have to have the motor replaced...

Drain Pump

If the dishwasher is loud during operation, the drain pump might be defective or might have some debris in it. This is a common problem.

Circulation Pump

If the dishwasher is loud during operation, and the noise is a continuous drone similar in speed to the circulation pump sound, it's likely that the circulation pump motor bearings have failed. Once this happens the circulation pump will have to be replaced, the bearings are not repairable.





Drain Impeller

If the dishwasher is loud during operation, the drain impeller might be broken, or there might be debris in the pump. Generally, to gain access to the pump the top of the pump housing will have to be removed.





Pump and Motor Assembly

If the dishwasher is loud the motor bearings, drain impeller or wash impeller might have worn out. All three of these components are part of the pump and motor assembly. It may be possible to replace one of the impellers, but the motor bearings cannot be repaired. In that case the pump and motor assembly will need to be replaced.





Wash Impeller

The wash impeller is a small, plastic blade. The motor spins the impeller forcing water through the spray arms to clean the dishes. If one or more blades has broken off of the impeller the dishwasher is loud. The impeller can also scrape against the pump housing if it is damaged, warped or bent.





Circulation and Drain Pump Motor

If the dishwasher is loud during operation, and the noise is a continuous drone similar in speed to the motor sound, it's likely that the circulation and drain pump motor bearings have failed. Once this happens the motor will have to be replaced, the bearings are not repairable.





Water Inlet Valve

The water inlet valve is an electrically controlled water valve. When it is new, the water inlet valve is very quiet. Over time, the diaphragm inside the valve deteriorates and deforms. This deformation interacts with the water rushing in and can cause a loud vibration, buzzing, squealing or other noises. If the dishwasher is loud during the filling cycle, replacing the water inlet valve may solve the problem.

Dish water is not working. Water fills but no noice after that.


it's obviously sounds like your pump has gone, but considering the age of the machine, it would probably be best to get a new machine, that way you would have a 5 year warranty with it aswell so it's win/win really!

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.

When in use, my dishwasher at times, makes a lot of repeating noise and it appears to tick.. th digital reading on the right blinks CL CL CL CL then HOT then goes back to tell you the remaining time, and...


Some dishwasher noises are normal, like the hiss of water rushing through the water inlet fill valve, or the hum of the pump motor, or the slosh of water. But if your dishwasher is making strange sounds or is unusually loud, it's time to investigate. A thumping noise could be the drain line vibrating against the cabinet; a grinding noise could be caused by a popcorn kernel being stuck in the chopper blade area of the dishwasher.
The CL is normally indicated child lock has been activated.
Dishes typically dry by the end of the dishwashing cycle, with one exception-plastic items. Because plastic doesn't retain heat like glass, ceramic and metal do, you'll almost always see drops of water on plastic items after the cycle finishes. Rinse aid helps water drain off all dishes so they dry better. Make sure that you fill that rinse aid dispenser when it's empty. A heated dry setting also is an option to enhance drying. You may have this option turned off to save energy, but if your dishes aren't drying as well as you'd like them to, you might want to consider turning it back on. Consult your owner's manual and select the cycle options that fit your needs and your energy usage goals. If your dishes don't get dry even though you've selected the heated drying option, then the heating element could be broken or the high-limit thermostat for the element may have tripped in error, preventing the element from heating. A malfunctioning vent or drying fan could also prevent dishes from drying. Check out this troubleshooting video that could help you correct a drying problem: Dishwasher Not Drying Dishes Video.

Loud humming noise when dishwasher is filling up with water


your model is pretty new. just so you know your warrenty is 1 year parts and labor. 2 years on parts. it should not cost that much money.

there are two components that start before the circulation pump.(wash noise you hear)

first sounds you hear will be the drain pump. usually rattling noises if something is in it but it can make a hum noise if something is jamming the drain propeller up. which is accessible with a T20 torx driver. take the filters out and the mesh filter. and unscrew the screw in the base towards the left. pull out whatever is lodged.

the other humming sound can come from the next component that activates is the watervalve. make sure you dont have a kinked water intake line. otherwise its a bad valve. i have had to change a few of those water valves out already but not for a hum noise on your model. you have a new style water valve. when brands make new parts we get problems fast sometimes..

Kenmore dishwasher 58715142400 fills but doesn't wash


Motor has gone out..just like mine...Make sure u have voltage going to the motor, (disconnect the plug from the motor) and use an electric meter to make sure you have voltage going to the motor. If so the motor has either gone out or has been blocked by something! If no noise except clicking then motor has gone out. Looking at about $150 for motor.
