Question and Answers

Q:

Whirlpool quiet dishwasher is now making a whining noise.

A:

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the dishwasher. Usually noises come from the pump area. If the noise does not change pitch while the motor is I suspect there is something in the chopper or the bearing in the motor is failing. I recommend checking the chopper screen for debris. I have provided you with an image below that shows how to check the screen. If the chopper is clean I would suspect the motor bearings. What you have explained on the spry arms sounds normal. The bearing should have a split and the arms will wobble a little bit.

I have found a video that shows how to service the dishwasher. Please click on this link to watch the video .

Please let me know if you need further assistance.
