Question about Kenmore 24 in. 17032 Built-in Dishwasher
Dishwasher Worked Fine For Many Months. Really Quiet. Started Making Loud High Pitched Noise When Running. It Still Runs Good And Cleans. But, The Noise Is Very Noticable.
19 mo old dishwasher recently started making a high pitched whine whenever the pump is running.
Debris caught iside pump assy is what it sounds like

I cleaned out the debris-still loud. My guess is it needs a new motor. Typical Sears/Whirlpool product.

Weve had the same problems it appears the bearing in the drive motor is shot.

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.

Motor bearing failed. I had mine for less than 2 years. The whining/grinding noise is likely the motor bearing. When I pulle dth emotor off mine the bearing was completely destroyed.
