Question about Maytag 24 in. MDBH950AWS Built-in Dishwasher

4 Answers

Maytag MDBH950AWB We have a Maytag MDBH950AWB dishwasher that has just started making a loud buzzing sound when it goes through the cycles. Seems like it still cleans the dishes, but the noise is about 50x louder than it was just a couple weeks ago. Please let me know where I should start the troubleshooting

    water goes in the unit ok but when it starts the cycle the motor is making a loud vibrating noise like the bearings ane gone and it cuts out for a second or two every minute or so.

    I got down to the dome cover and couldn't figure out how to get it off.

You need to remove the lower spray arm (the little plastic nut in the middle of the arm can be removed with a 3/8" nut driver), then the dome housing, then the impeller, then the entire cover. This gets you down to the motor where the chopper blade is at. There's probably something hard that's getting in the blade. If you don't find anything, you'll need to replace the motor and the seal kit, which includes the blade and the seal that does not come with the motor.

See my post about the MDBH950AWS problem I had with the food chopper/impeller adapter/shaft. I suggest you get in the bottom of the dishwasher and start removing screws, starting with removing both racks and then all the things on the bottom. You may have something hung in the food chopper or you may need to replace the adapter/motor shaft. (This is the same answer, but with an identification so you can find me easier.)

it is a capacitor to start the motor for the next cycle. I think it is inside the door. you may have to call a tech.

I have an kenmore elite "ultra wash" model 665. not sure the rest.. about 7/8 years old, making loud buzzing sound during wash cycles,starts about 5 minutes into the normal wash cycle. i removed the inlet...

I have the same problem as those who stated their dishes are not getting clean. If you listen to the wash cycle you should hear water sloshing around inside. If you hear just a humming sound the washer has no water. I have this problem. I had a tech come and he told me the water is syphoning out my drain and I need to change my plumbing, then he charged me $65. I have lived in this house for ten years. 6 with the washer that came with house and 4 with this Kenmore Elite. This problem started about 6 months ago. So what I have been doing is opening the door, after the humming starts and the sloshing stops, and adding about 2 L of water. It seems to wash just fine after that.

I have a Maytag 2651HEW . Seems to be cooling and

Thant must be checked out soon as that buzzing sound is the start relay struggling to start the compressor. The longer it goes on without repair to either the sart/run capacitor, start relay and overload the higher the chance there is for complete compressor failure. The condenser and evaporator areas should be cleaned and inspect both internal freezer fan and lower condenser fan that both run without stopping. Let me look for a service manual for your model and return soon, Thanks, Sea breeze

Loud Buzzing Sound from Dishwasher

have you ever seen green led "Clean" light flashing? before or about the same time the buzzing sound started? and if so that would indicate that the control senses a fault in the temperature rise during the heating cycle and that the electronic control could be reset by initiating a service diagnostic cycle.(which is what you were trying to do) pls reread your manual there are times during that sequence that some buttons have to be pushed at the same time and within a certain amount of time..possible that your machine also has a bad timer which would give you a buzzing noise..if thats the case I would recommend replacing the cpu or control board..or the machin all together..The Kenmore Ultra Wash Quiet Guard name is sears but whirpool has the contract to produce all "kenmore products.hope that helps.

The dishwasher lights are all blinking, it starts randomly, like one in every 50 times you press the buttons. I have unplugged it to reset several times. Nothing is working. I'm looking for a solution to blinking lights and it not starting. is there any other way to reset the controls????

Diswasher motor making noise during wash cycle

It could be the impeller on the motor. The impeller fits over the shaft of the motor and might have split/broken up. That funny noise is probably the shaft spinning inside the damage impeller. Fortunately the impeler is fairly inexpensive and easy to replace. I believe there are one or two parts/covers to remove that are held in by a roughly half dozen torx screws.

Maytag dishwasher mdbh950awb

Sounds like you have a control panel and/or control board issue. Normally when operator functions fail or "halfway" work the main control board, associated keypad, or wiring are the likely suspect. Now...another remote possibility could be the door latch not closing properly. However, this would affect ALL functions. I hope this helps you.
