dishwasher repair

21 June 2012 - 08:31 PM

Hoping someone can help. A few weeks back I ran my dishwasher and it started making a horrendous loud buzzin/grinding noise. Needless to say, the dishses did not get clean. My husband and I took the whole thing apart and when we got to the food grinder, the screen was very clogged with stuff including a few old toothpicks. We cleaned it out, put it back together and ran it again and it ran fine. Yesterday, I loaded it up, turned it on and realized it was not making the usual splashing sounds and the dishes were not clean. As far as I can tell, the top arm was not spinning at all and I don't know if the bottom arm had much pressure. Took out all of the bottom parts again, the food grinder screen was full of stuff again although no toothpicks. We cleaned it out, put everything back together and now it is running fine. What is going on? Is the food grinder not working so that is causing some other problem? Any suggestions of parts I might need to replace? Thanks for any help anyone can offer!

Frosted coils on Maytag MSD2756GEW

18 April 2009 - 01:51 PM

I have a maytag MSD2756GEW...probably purchased in 2002.   It has always made some strange noises here and there, but  I guess I have been lucky because it has not had any defrost problems.  Until now, that is!  My coils are definitely frosted over.  I have read all of the posts regarding this, but am confused.  I tried the test and L1 short circuit and I did come up with a continuous clicking sound from the board; however, when I move the board around the clicking decreases or stops.  I don't know if this is normal.  And the refrigerator did not go into a defrost cycle.  So, how do I know if it is the board or the defrost heater that is bad?  I don't have any of the electrical testing equipment.
