Our dishwasher has started to make a terrible noise that sounds like a cross between electrical buzzing and a garbage disposal. It only happens during a wash cycle. Water intake and draining sound perfectly normal. We tore down the inside of the tub down to the wash motor and cleaned everything, but it still makes the same noise. It passes the Field Service Test (noisily). Everything seems to work okay, it just sounds like its going to explode at any moment.
Should I replace the wash motor? If I do, should I purchase a Motor Seal Kit at the same time?
ANSWER Hello Andy. Based on the information you provided, it sounds like the wash motor 6-919963 is bad and will need to be replaced in the unit.
