noise Maytag dishwasher MDB7851AWB

23 September 2011 - 07:58 AM

First of all, I have located the source of the noise, it is the motor/pump assembly when the sump runs dry makes a screaming noise.

dishwasher fills and after a slight pause the motor pump starts and all is ok for about 30 seconds or less. The wash action stops (motor pump still running) and motor starts making loud (dry sump) type of noise.
You can hear the wash action stop when the noise is heard.

This is what I have done so far.

1. added water manually and stops noise and wash action continues without interruption.
2. replaced fill water valve figuring that not enough water is getting in.
3. after replacing valve, there is no change in operation, still making noise (dry sump)
4. disassembled pump and checked filter and wash impeller, appeared to be ok and clear
5. drain hose is correct position draining in disposer and not syphoning

I am missing something......
wash arms clear
general condition on this 3 year old unit is good

either the wash system is taking too much water to prime the arms or somehow i still do not have enough water is how I see it now.

can anyone help me with suggestions?

Thanks Longtimer

Thermador PRDS364GDUS 20110081

Thermador dual fuel range PRDS364GDUS serial 20110081

I feel like the Shoemaker that his kids all run around barefooted.
I have been putting this off for a long time.
(range is big and heavy)

This was a big mistake buying in the first place,
but I need to move on.

bake will not reach temperature (most of the time)
Broil works
Wiring and bake element checked all OK.

The biggest problem I have is not understanding or
recognizing the controls.

Control knob goes all the way around, so this is not a
strictly mechanical thermostat.
Indicator light showing temperature has been met is
consistent with low temperatures (stays on)

Oven cavity has bulb type thermostat instead of electronic sensor.

It seems obvious that it needs a new Thermostat.

I cannot identify if that is one part or several.

Unit also has a Push button switch to get the Oven mode
on/off/bake/broil/clean/convection bake.

anyone familiar with this system?

I saw the new line Electrolux is releasing in January, and must admit I was impressed with the product.
Controls really cool!
fit and finish very good

I think they will have hit on their hands

only for the aged

Does anyone remember when JC Penney stop selling their own brand name Appliances?

Hotpoint used to make them.......not neccessarily GE, they came mostly out of the Chicago Hotpoint plant.

I would have guessed around 1977?

Liebherr anyone
