I have a Kenmore dishwasher that's only a few months old,
installed myself. Some weeks after being installed, it
started making a hellacious vibrational noise at startup and
again at a few select moments in its cycling. The noise can
sometimes last for several minutes. I found that sometimes
turning on the kitchen tap puts an immediate stop to the
noise, so I'm thinking this is maybe a venting problem?
Is this likely to be a problem with the dishwasher
installation, or could the problem be somewhere else in the
pipes and only show up as vibration with the dishwasher?
Any help is appreciated.
Don't get too deep into the d.w and void your warranty!
A good chance that they will replace the fill valve, it may not be
opening or closing properly and causing the pipes to bang. I would
check your install in case something is touching or against somthing
else and banging creating the noise.
