I have a Whirlpool Quiet Partner 3 dishwasher making a buzzing noise on start up. It sounds as if it is coming from the door. The unit works and I have cleaned out the filter and around the pump.

When the dishwasher starts to make funny noises or working loudly, it is usually because there are debris caught in the draining pump, although a problem with the motor is also possible.

Drain Pump: The drain pump might needs to be checked for debris. If its clean and noisy it needs to be replaced.

Circulation Pump: Bearings inside the circulation pump will wear out over time and can cause a loud groaning sound while the dishwasher operates.

Wash Impeller: The wash impeller has small plastic blades that help with water flow to the control arms. If one of the blades breaks there could be a noise. It may also be improperly aligned. Inspect for any signs of damage.

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 a very similar dishwasher, with a very similar problem. I fixed it by removing debris from the water evacuator pump located towards the front of the bottom of the machine (the last motor before the drain hose. In my case, grape stems had clogged it up. Once emptied, it purrs once again. NOTE: don't disassemble the motor, just flush it out, there is an o-ring gasket that is a bear to re-install.

SOURCE: Dishwasher (whirlpool quiet partner II)

I think I solved the door leaking problem by cleaning out the plastic filter screen on the inside (left) door panel. Didn't even know it was there, never knew it was suppose to be cleaned! It was so clogged and gross. I also discovered that my washer had shifted and was off balance. It has wood shims under the steel casing and one block was loose. No doubt from slamming and banging the door open and closed. Had to take the front skirt and kickplate off to see. I had my son use a lever and hoisted it up a little while I replaced the block shim now making the washer level again. Ran a light wash before fixing problems and it leaked. We ran a light wash after the fix's and so far so good. Haven't ran a regular longer wash yet. My water level was fine, no gasket problems, no washer wand cracks, etc... My husband was thrilled! When he came home, I informed him I have good news and not so good news. The not so good news was dinner was going to be late, the good news was I fixed the leaking (for months!)dishwasher and saved alot of money on repairs!

**Cleaned filter screen, made dishwasher level again.
