Question about Frigidaire 24 in. FDBB840DC Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher
Good Morning Kristen - You may try to reset the dishwasher by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and turn the dishwasher back on. If this proves to be ineffective, then the unit may possibly being experiencing a communication issue with the control panel, wiring failure, drain motor/pump or water valve. Because it could be a number of any one of several underlying causes, I would recommend contacting a professional to properly diagnose and repair the unit.

Ok, normally, when you hear abnormal noises and the draining has stopped, this will point to the pump/motor assembly. this assembly , basically, runs together in unison. the pump/motor are as one and if the motor is malfunctioning, the pump will not drain properly. this noise is coming from the pump housing. There are many parts that are located in this housing and one fragile part that can cause issues is the Impeller. this piece provides the pump action that moves the water during drainage. If the sleeve that connects to the Impeller becomes stripped, the motor drive bolt will simple spin freely, causing this noise and no drainage. The motors fine but, you will have to replace the pump assembly in order for this noise to stop and the normal draining cycle to return. just to be safe, check all the drainage hoses as well.
please rate and god bless:)

HI. the circulation pump has an impeller that is attached to the drive shaft stud. this impeller has become unstable and, it is producing this noise you are hearing during the wash. you will need to replace the wash impeller asap.
there are kits available on-line or, you can initiate a service call for this as well.

No longer "ultra quiet" huh?
A sound during certain cycles indicates a broken part. By the information provided sounds like a pump may be the problem. You may need to contact a service tech about this issue. If the appliance still under warranty, the service should be provided for free.
Every time when you hear noises (other than the normal ones) in the appliance, it indicates there is something wrong and it will worsen over time, so as soon you hear something is not ok, get assistance.

I have the same problem with my dishwasher. If you remove the kick plate while it is running, There is an electric motor underneath. If you push up and pull forward on the electric motor, the noise will stop. I used a block to prop it up and the noise stopped. You may want to try it.
