I am not familiar with your particular model - so take my advice lightly.
Usually the motor and sump (not the bottom pan) come as one assembly that come as a unit. Replacing both is usually easiest and economical considering that a motor problem could be caused by something wrong with the sump, or the other away around.
Thiis is something you can fix yourself if you are mechanically inclined.

Testimonial: "This helps, I ordered the sump/motor but received motor only. Perhaps the noise may be in the sump as suggested and replacing both is best."

Kenmore classic dishwasher washing cyle doesn't start


It sounds as if you need to replace the timer. The reset motor is separate from the primary motor--that is why one type of "cycle"--diagnostic-- seems to work but the regular cycle(s) do not.

Kenmore 16532 dishwasher,three years old. It has slowly gotten very noisy. I have stripped down everything I can access from the tub, including the chopper. I can't find any problem. It is quiet while the...


It could be 2 things:

a) water obstruction in the spray jet ports causing uneven rotation of the spray arm.
This uneven rotation will eventually wear out the motor bearings.
Fix: clear out any clogged spray jet ports.

b) the motor bearing are already shot, and they're growling and howling in pain as the motor grinds them to death.
Fix: replace motor - new bearings will come with the new motor.
Alternate Fix: replace dishwasher. Often new motors are so expensive, replacing the whole unit is the bast option, especially with Sears/Kenmore (where parts are expensive)
Try: www.SearsPartsDirect.com.

I tried the sears parts web site for you, but you model number came back to a Bissel carpet cleaner.

Dishwasher making loud noise during wash cycle


It's noisy 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.
thanks and accept the solution accordingly

Loudness of dishwasher

LG DISHWASHER WORKS BUT VERY NOISY MODLE:LD-2040WH


The main water pump on this model does not last long. The water seal between pump and motor starts to leak that result in the adjacent motor bearing corroding and eventually failing, resulting in excessive noise. Later the water leak becomes so bad that it triggers the "E I" water leakage display and prevents it from completing the program. The pump and motor is sold as one unit and the whole unit must be replaced. I have tried to replace the faulty bearing and repacked the rubber seal with silicon grease but with no success. If anyone have repaired the water seal successfully please let us know.
