Ok whirlpool quiet dishwasher...1.5 yrs old and now it is VERY loud
manufacturer said warranty over and repair is not cost effective?
removed motor, cleaned screens and still loud...I'm fed up with
disposable appliances, so does anybody have some advice?
thanks in advance....frank
Two different issues. If the warranty is over, now matter how PO'd you are,
the manufacturer has no legal obligation to fix anything. As for cost
effective, that is another issue. Most appliances are rally cheap to buy
compared to what they were years ago. That can be both good and bad.
The real problem though, is the noise. Do you know where it is coming from?
Motor? pump? Every part of the cycle? Fill or drain worse than other
times? Need more information to diagnose, but you may want to check out
www.repairclinic.com for both diagnostics and part cost.

Yeah, let's figure out what's wrong with it. Did the sound insulation
slip out of place? Is some part making more noise than it should?
If it's a part, and you can't figure out what part, it might fail in a
month or two and then it will be much easier to identify. Or it might
last for years this way.
If you can't figure out the problem, then do the dishes when no one is
in the room. How bad would that be? You can even start the machine
just before you go to bed.
I know it's annoying to pay extra for quiet and then have it break in
only 1.5 years, but you'll get over that eventually, especially if
you're able to fix it, but even if not.
Someone once posted about buying a Bosch dishwasher, known
for being quiet, but the thing sounded like a jet. Long story short,
turns out the installer didn't put in the sound insulation. Easy fix.
Was your machine quiet and has gotten noisier over time? Just curious,
I have no idea how to fix the problem. I love my Whirlpool dishwasher,
it's a couple of years old, and still quiet.
