Howdy! I have this ~ 3-4 year old Bosch dishwasher that makes a buzzing noise with 64 minutes left on the r3egular wash cycle. It sounds like something might be loose, but pushing on the door doesn't seem to change it. I'm not sure of the model number, but I've attached a picture of the offending beast.

Is there an online description of what's happening during the cycles for this dishwasher? I'm thinking that info may be useful in diagnosing the problem, which seems to occur right after it drains.

Thanks for your help!!

Gregg

If you open the door, your model number is on a white tag along the door-seal edge of the stainless-steel tub.

Does the buzzing seem to originate from the control panel area or from underneath the dishwasher, at floor level?

Hmm, good question. I will have to make dishes dirty, then get back to you! From memory though, the sound seems pretty "up front", and not muffled, but I can't say for sure. Anything else I should observe durring the buzzing?

Go ahead and pull the kick plates from the bottom of the dishwasher. This will make determining the source of the noise less ambiguous.

Boy, do I feel like a dork. I think the problem WAS the kickplate! Appropriate damping will be applied.

Thank you!!
