Smeg Dishwasher Humming Noise

The dishwasher makes an electrical humming noise and the program code changes to _ 1.  I've switched the machine off and back on, initially it shows a program code but after a few seconds this changes to _ 1 and the machine will not start.  Any suggestions please.

Hi olsworth,

 

I think you may have something hung up in the pump.  This is a bad situation.  See if you can remove the dish baskets, and remove the strainer cover in the bottom of the chamber and see if something is in the pump drain area. I am not real familiar with the Smeg, But I do know that humming is related to the pump motor in a strain. I will study this more and get back with you soon.  Please do not vote yet.  I am wanting to get this solved for you, and it may take a bit of study on my part to get you an answer.  Please give some feedback in to what you are finding on your end.

    Ok Olsworth,



     



    Please check the filters above, as I have read further the manual on your dishwasher and possibly the filters are clogged and need cleaning.  The manual states that the dishwasher wil not function with the filters clogged.  This may not be the solution.   I will be looking into the Display code _1 and reply shortly.

    The code could possibly the Aquastop system or Anti-Flooding valve located inside the water intake hose.  The manual warns not to cut into the Hose to get to the Aquastop solenoid, This is dangerous. 



    The warning is on page 4 of this PDF file.

    My best guess is to work on the intake pipe to see if it is clogged in some way.

    In the pdf manual above you can go to PDF page 20 for minor troubleshooting. Good luck on getting your dishwasher fixed  and hope my tips help you. I will be waiting for a reply from you to see if we need further action. Again Thank you for you gving me this opportunity to help you.  I wish for a solved solution vote.

My electrolux dishwasher is throwing an E32 error


Hello Heber Allred - Are you certain that the error code is E32? This manufacturer does not have an E32 error code for any dishwasher. They do have E02 or E12. Is the hum noise more like a grinding noise? If so, then I recommend contacting a professional to move forward accurately. The unit may be experiencing an issue with a faulty drain motor.

Humming sound cumin from my creative inspire 4.1 woofer


Make sure that you've fully pushed in the jack to the sound card.....maybe you've not connected the jack into the correct socket on your soundcard as there are usually 3 identical sockets...but only 1 is the correct one. Sometimes colour-coded green. Try it in each one in turn. If you have headphones, try plugging them in as you will hear sound in them when you've got the correct socket!

My lgis making a horrible noise and is now shoeing an e1 code dishwasher


The LG does suffer from "poor quality" motor that causes this type of noise. The main motor and pump assembly is common to give this type of problem. The pump seal leaks a small amount of water that gets onto the front bearing and causes a "grinding = humming" noise. This can be easly replaced once you have the bottom off and dishwasher on its door. The motoe has 1 screw in the back holding the motor to the bottom and two rubber seals for the water pump in/out into the washer. Just pull and move motor and pump assmbly and it comes free. Replace with a new motor and pump assembly...

Problem with the Samsung Washing Machines The machine keeps coming up with the message HEI 10x


Here is a list of errors for your machine.

I hope they help you.


SAMSUNG WASHING MACHINES, ERROR FUNCTIONS

When an error occurs, the alarm noise will sound and the error code displayed in the program window. Listed below is a series of error codes you may or may not see for your model of Samsng Washing Machine. The errors are shown as blinking in O.5 second intervals until the error status has cleared. In this case, all the driving devices are turned off until the error is cleared.

1. WATER SUPPLY ERROR - Display shows 4E.

Water Supply Error occurs when water level frequency does not show changes more than 100Hz or water is not supplied up to the preset water level after 10 Minutes or more at the time of initial water supply. The error status can be cleared by turning the POWER switch OFF and back ON.

2. WATER DRAIN ERROR - Display shows 5E.

5E is displayed if the water level frequency detected is 25 KHz or less in the initial phase of the UNB -detecting cycle. The Water Drain error can be cleared by turning POWER SW OFF and back ON.

3. OVER-FLOW ERROR - Display shows oE.

Over-Flow error occurs when the water level is too high. It can be cleared by turning POWER switch OFF. Water is drained prior to POWER switch OFF. The tub is drained for 2 minutes if a frequency of more than 25 KHz is detected.

4. UNBALANCE ERROR - Display shows UE.

Laundry load is unbalanced, manually loosen any tangled laundry.

If only one item of clothing needs washing, such as a bathrobe or jeans, the final spin result might be unsatisfactory and an UE error message will be shown in the display. Unbalance error is cleared by POWER switch OFF and back ON.

5. WATER HEATER ERROR - Display shows HE, HE1.

HE, HE1 is displayed if the water temperature rises by 7 C or more in 1 Min or by 2 C or less 20 Min after heating process has started. The error can be cleared by turning POWER switch OFF.

6. WATER PRESSURE SWITCH ERROR - Display shows 1 E.

* Generated Frequency Signal of WATER LEVEL (WIL) SIW (KHz)

Normal Level = Abnormal W/L Frequency
Low Level = 30.00 Khz
High Level = 15.00 Khz

If the same signal is detected for more than 5 seconds, it is a PRESSURE SWITCH Error. When this error occurs the drain pump will operate for 3 min. and the display will show 1 E indicating a pressure switch error.

7. ABNORMAL WATER TEMPERATURE ERROR- Display shows cE.

e.g. If the water temperature is 50 C or more, during a Delicate or Wool cycle.

At the time of initial water supply, if the water temperature is not appropriate, the display will show cE. This error can be cleared by POWER SWITCH OFF.

8. WATER LEAKAGE ERROR - Display shows 11 E.

Water Leakage error occurs when the water drains naturally, (by leakage) after the washing program starts.

9. THERMISTOR ERROR - Display shows tE

When starting the dishwasher there is only a hum but nothing else happens


The first thing a Bosch dishwasher does when you start a program is run the waste pump. This ensures that any residual water and waste is removed from the machine before the wash program begins.

The hum you can hear is most likely the pump motor trying to drive the impeller. This can become clogged with waste and seize up, preventing the wash cycle from starting. There is an easy way to check this:

(It's easier to do this with the washer empty)

1: Select a wash program

2. Press "Start" and wait for the humming noise

3. Open the door and pull the bottom basket forward or lift it out completely

4. Find and lift the float (the plastic dome/mushroom in the bottom of the washer) all the way up

5. Keep the float lifted and the dishwasher should pump out. Stop if/when you hear a gurgling noise as this means it's empty and pumping mostly air.

6. If the pump doesn't start, lift the float again for about 1-2 seconds then let it drop again for 1-2 seconds. Repeat this 10-20 times and see if the pump starts. The repeated stop/start signals to the pump motor can sometimes free a seized impeller.

If the pump does start, keep lifting and dropping the float switch (1-2 seconds each time) to see if the pump starts every time. If it does, you should be OK to use the washer, but further action is needed to stop the problem returning.

When you've done all this, post the results here and I'll advise you what to do to fix the problem or prevent it from returning.

Water won't pump out of Dishwasher.


if your hearing a hum then something is in a bind. i have found things as small as 1/2 inch of a toothpick being enough to hold an electric pump back. i suggest taking a very simplistic approach to this problem. find the obstruction and remove it. good luck.

Dishwasher wont go into cycle mode and hums


No model and brand name .
the way you mention look like the main motor jammed and making the humming noise click out on overload then the humming noise stop and after a while it will humming again and continue like that until you switch off the machine. If the dishwasher is old I would recommand you buy a new one instead of changing the motor.
God Bless have a nice day Dickson

Matsui dishwasher mf160


I used the solution I found for a slightly different fault, ( this was the same fault but without the bleebs)
switch off mains and turn off water. Then disconnect water pipe and lay machine on it's back. Switch on electrics, and allow water to run out. Switch off electrics and stand machine up .Reconnect everything and hey presto I can hear two good things, the machine gently humming, and my wife telling me what a genius I am !!

Loud Humming Noise


You're describing vague, conflicting information. At first glance, I would think you have something stuck in the pump. But then it would be there in the rinse-only cycle also.
The anti-bacterial mode heats the water up to about 180F. This kills bacteria, and it also speeds up the action of the detergent. It could be dissolving whatever is in there.
The humming noise wasn't there in the rinse mode... The heater isn't on in the rinse mode - everything else is. But I've NEVER heard a heating element hum.

Cleaning the filter:
The filter is in the back in the bottom right. It's cover is held on by two 1/4 in screws. Under that is a large grate, and I sometimes find stuff clogging the screen (underwater, toward the center of the machine.) I'd start by looking there.

Good luck!
