Frigidaire Dishwasher Repair

Appliance:
Frigidaire Dishwasher

Problem:
Making a Loud Buzzing Noise - when the dishwasher is trying to re-circulate the water it makes a very loud noise. It sounds like the ball bearing is worn out on the motor.
Solution:
The circulation motor comes as part of a kit, the motor kit. The housing might need to be changed as well. Frigidaire now has one motor kit instead of having two or three different motors.

If your problem is just the motor, the solution is simple. It is basically a matter of turning and snapping it into place, once the wires and relevant items are removed. But, it can be hard at times to get underneath it; it depends on how much clearance there is.

A lot of Frigidaire dishwashers have a locking mechanism for the pump and motor assembly. If the machine is making a lot of noise, then something is probably broken in the impeller or in the motor pump assembly. Or the bearings could be gone.

If the entire motor kit needs to be replaced in order to complete this Frigidaire dishwasher repair, make sure to replace the pump housing as well. This kind of Frigidaire dishwasher repair is not difficult for a DIYer to complete. Most motor pump assemblies cost between a $100-150.
