Kitchen aid Dishwaher help
« on: December 08, 2011, 09:49:18 PM »
I have a friend that has a $700 Kitchen aid dishwasher Model (KUDS01FLSS6) SER (FR4411567) and has it sitting in his garage. He took it out of his home because it was making a high speed noise. He described it as a Bzzzzzzzz noise. Not like a electrical buzz but a blade of some sort spinning at a high rate of speed. He said everything works on it. He just couldn't stand the noise. Any thought's? Thanks for any info.

Could be something in the food chopper #6 in this diagram or the main motor.

Sometimes if it's the main motor you can see a little trail of water reside at the bottom of were the motor connects to the sump housing.

I always check the food chopper first just because it's easier when the dishwasher is installed, but being it's in his garage I would lay it on it's back and take a look at the motor to see if there is any sign of water residue like a white trail round the bottom edge of the motor.

I have replaced a lot of noisy motors in these types of dishwashers.

No problem, let us know how it turns out for you.

Also if you take the food chopper out and it seems fine you can spin the shaft of the motor from inside the dishwasher to see if it's noisy too.
