Question about Kenmore 24 in. 16032 Built-in Dishwasher
About a day after this thing went out of warranty it started making a whining noise when the main motor is running. In the months that have passed it seems to be getting louder. Should I replace the motor, the impeller, or something else. I am very disappointed in this product - and Sears
The next time this bearing goes I will destroy this POS!!! And go right back to Sears and buy another and ***** and moan when it screws up!!! LOL! I'm gettin alittle jumpy...it's been over two years since the last bearing failed.

Problem is with the main pump motor bearing. Water leaking from the face seal enters the front bearing. After some time, the bearing wears out bringing on the loud noise. The motor is easy to remove but the bearing requires some time to remove. I did not have access to a press so I ground off the bearing an replaced it with a shielded 8mmx22mm type. Grainger p/n 1L001. The part is only $9 compared to over $200 for a replacement motor. It takes some time and disassembly of the dishwasher can be difficult but take your time and be ginger with the parts. The root of the problem seems to be the impeller. It screws onto the motor shaft and seems to work loose after time. Since its tightness compresses the face seal, when it loosens water can seep. No way to lock it in place after tightening. Weak design point.

Blueweals, on model number 66516032400 and 66516032401, there was a motor safety recall. I don't know if your model number starts or ends with these numbers, but I'm assuming so. If so, you should have had the motor replaced under a recall because of a potential fire hazard. Post back with a full model number and serial number and I will let you know if your dishwasher was included in this service flash...Catriver.
