Check the impeller shaft for cracks and rough patches. pump is making a grinding - harlok_6.jpg If the impeller shaft is still smooth and in one piece the main motor bearing is damaged or worn out. A main bearing is not replaceable as accessing it would compromise the motor housing.

Our 2 year old Miele dishwasher (G1182/G2182) makes a strange popping/grinding glass noise when draining. We used 1 bottle of Finish Intensive care & clean with no improvement. Any suggestions?


there is a piece of debris in the drain pump. remove the triple filter from the bottom ( the one you are supposed to clean every week to keep debris out of the drain pump) under that filter and to the left hand side you will see the non return valve. squeeze the tab and pull the non return valve out. remove the broken glass or whatever is stuck in the drain pump impeller. replace the non return valve. replace the filter. if you need a picture go to mieleusa.com, and search for your owners manual. it has step by step tutorials on how to free an obstruction from your drain pump.

Possible obstruction in drain area


Hello,
The spray arm will just pull up with a bit of resistance then turn retainer anti-clocwise and pull out filter then check for debris and clean all fine mesh filter screens.But it may be that the debris has got into the pump and caused damage.

Hope this helps.

Sounds like change grinding in spin cycle


This machine is prone to getting stuff down into drain pump. Pull unit away from wall, disconnect plug, hoses etc... Pull back steel panel of of rear of machine, facing rear of machine, drain pump on lower left, rinse pump on lower right, take needle nose pliers or spring pliers and remove hose to tub and drain pipe hose, tilt machine forward, take 5/16 nut driver and remove three screws holding pump, drop pump down, replace pump. Install in reverse order. Then, remove center nut in center of tub, pull center spinner out, then lift top to machine, remove inner tub and clean out metal, money or other stuff from bottom of outer tub, reinstall in reverse order.Once money has gotten into pump it can damage it, so replace it even though it looks good.

My Kenmore Elite dishwasher makes a buzzing noise when going through the wash cycle. It's a couple years old and I don't want to replace it!


the possible causes.it could be some hard debris near the chopper blade inside the pump or some times water seal on the pump goes bad and water leaks into the motor bearing/rusting it and starts grinding noise.open the pump from inside and reach the choper blade and look for any hard debris.if find nothing then motor assly needs to be chgd.

Kenmore Ultrawash Quiet Guard 5 making buzzing/grinding noise


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.

Washer is making a grinding sound when draining water.


hi, this grinding sound is coming from the pump. the pump device seems to have a broken impeller that is located inside the pump. You will not be able to replace this internal part. This device is fixed and you will have to replace the entire pump assembly.

This will happen if some debris or coins make it threw the pump housing. these debris will settle in the pump housing near the impeller and it will grind while in operation or, draining procedure. the solid debris will eventually damage the impeller and break it off the drive bolt. this will all happen in time but, it usually starts with the minor grinding sound.

Kenmore dishwasher


Mine eventually "fixed itself". I think some debris got caught and eventually (5 cycles or so) got ground up and sent through the drain. The noise changed each time it got closer "flushing out"
