Dishwasher Repair and Maintenance

Buzzing Ultra Quiet

We bought a Kenmore Ultra Quiet dishwasher from Sears a couple of years ago. Our kitchen abuts the living room and we wanted something that didn't put out a wall of sound each time we ran it. It has been a great machine, very quiet and so far very reliable.

A few weeks ago our dishwasher started making a buzzing sound while it was running. It didn't sound like something major was broken but it was annoying and little problems can often turn into big problems over time. Before we launch into that, a little background.

If you install your own dishwasher here are some tips for smooth and quiet operation.

Of course you can do all of this with your existing dishwasher, maybe squeak out a little performance or shush it up a bit.
