kenmore precision wash quiet guard 22-15263 noisy

3 posts in this topic

Over the past couple of days, my dishwasher has gotten pretty noisy while the motor is running (a whirl sound). It's only 1/2 a year old, so I don't expect bearings to be shot. I took the kick plate off, and luckily there is no water. If I push the motor back a bit (towards the back of the unit, parallel to the floor, the unit is quiet as can be. If I let off the gentle pressure, the noise starts coming back.

I'm tempted to get a rather large ball of duct tape and wedge it under the motor, but I'm hoping you guys have a better idea. Is the motor just a bit loose in the mounting bracket? Perhaps jostled during install?

http://www.commercial.sears.com/comsale/appliance/applcat/ti.cgi/item.ti/44?tool=22-15262 is the dishwasher. Looks very similar to http://fixitnow.com/wp/2006/06/08/anatomy-of-a-whirlpool-kitchenaid-kenmore-dishwasher/. I tried to do some searching, but most problems seem a bit more intense than what I'm facing.

Thanks in advance for any help.
