Whirlpool Dishwasher suddenly making a grinding noise...

My whirlpool dishwasher has suddenly started making a loud hard grinding noise when I turn it on. It sounds like it coming from underneath it. My husband thinks that it may be the motor. Should I just replace the motor or should I just take it as a loss and buy a new one? I dont want it to be a hazard to my home! But I always dont want to just throw money around. Please help me.

Motors for tall tub whorlpools are over two hundred dollars. If its less than a year then its under warranty. You did not indicate model. If you can get back to me I'll look more in to seeing if it is feasable to repair or replace.

    motor and pump housing retails from fox atlanta for 198.00 sump gasket for 19.00. Not to hard to do if you have done before. Other wise take the loss and replace. I would go for higer end such as Bosche or possible Frigidaire model PLD 4375. I have that one. Its very quiet and cleans well.

Whirlpool GU1500X dishwasher motor noise got loud


Hello- Yep- it's toast. A small seal on motor shaft failed, causing water to destroy bearings. Motor is about 100$. Installation instructions available if you choose that route. Let me know if this info helps- have more if needed.- Thanks - Ed

Loud rattling grinding noise when pump is running, no water enters the machine.


Make sure the water is turned on to the machine, if it is then it sounds like a faulty water fill valve, just replace the fill valve, they can sometimes be cleaned but I would never trust one, they can always stick in the on position later and flood your house. Check to see if the valve is geting 120v ac before replaceing the valve, if it's getting voltage and no water is flowing then the valve is bad. You will need to borrow or buy a multi-meter for this test.
